    His death in 2011 was a massive lost to the field and to me personally and I regularly check back on the guest blog he wrote for Cognitive Edge. It was satisfying to find my name on Brian Castellani’s updated map of the Complexity Sciences. The map is used a lot, especially in wikipedia and it is an academic acknowledgement of the status of the work overall.

    [Blogging] coffee, communities, and condescension
    Last month I started a coffee club so that subscribers to this blog could purchase the equivalent of a cup of coffee for me each month. I shared a link to a blog post as well as an image I had created. This week we had our first online video conference with five participants. As a result we decided that this would be a good place to have deeper and more meaningful monthly conversations on topics that interest us.

    [Blogging] Gender Pay Discrimination: Point A
    We featured two obvious and hypocritical cases recently in this blog: 1.Fearless Girl. There's complex, tough and so-far unresolved issues regarding gender pay. And then there's outright no-good unethical, hopefully illegal, gender pay discrimination against women. . Claire Miller, in a NYTimes article about nursing , screams bloody discrimination about nurses. But is it? Nursing is a field where over 90% of the most experienced nurses are women.

    I’m having to take non-book work with me but I’m rationing my time and will try and blog daily about the work I am doing. I really should be cutting back on the email and task backlog at the moment but I keep getting distracted by the print of Cynefin on which I have made a growing body of notes so its probably best to get it out of the system. Tomorrow I head off for a cottage on Ynys Môn to break the back of the book over eight days.

    [Blogging] Inclinations & dispositions
    Christmas BlogsOne of the most important things to grasp about a complex adaptive system is that, at a system level, we have no linear material cause but instead we have a dispositional state, a set of possibilities and plausibilities in which a future state cannot be predicted. Now I’ve always found this easy to grasp but I know I’m in a minority. I think it links to religious and other traditions which accept that somethings just are , there is no reason for it.

    By David Gurteen Whether it is our educational systems or the presentations we give at conferences, we focus far too much on filling people's heads with content. It is not an effective way of teaching. We need to inspire people to learn for themselves, not attempt to fill their heads with stuff. Plutarch understood this, almost 2,000 years ago when he said: The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled.

    [Blogging] Reviving the MOOC
    That's where my 'LetsMakeSomeArtDammit' blog came from. This article was created as a response to Dhawal Shah in EdSurge on A Proposal to Put the 'M' Back in MOOC. I actually typed the article into the comment form on the article, but it only allows posts from people who are logged into Facebook, which I refuse to do. When we created the first MOOC in 2008 the idea was to recreate the concept of the 'course of lectures' from the traditional university.

    [Blogging] a cup of coffee
    I was considering making this blog private and creating a community space for paying subscribers. It would complicate the sharing of my posts, and my blog was ranked as one of the most shared in the learning & development field in 2013. However, after much deliberation I don’t think this is the best model for myself or anyone who reads my work.

    [Blogging] Lobbing pebbles
    I once described blogging as being a bit like lobbing pebbles into ponds. Each blog post causes ripples, however modest, to go out into the world, hopefully causing ideas and opinions to change. I love watching my daughter Mollie lobbing her blog posts out into the world and causing ripples. Over time you get better at lobbing bigger pebbles into better ponds.

The parade of bad news: gun violence, hurricanes, earthquakes, nuclear war, fake news, and more. Unfortunately, if you work in digital strategy and social media, monitoring social is a daily task and as a result a bad mood has become an occupational hazard. What to do?

    [Blogging] Blog Post: Are vague Ideas sometimes better than firm ones?
    By David Gurteen I rather like this thought about ideas from Pablo Picasso. We don't necessarily need a clear, crisp, sharp idea or vision. A hazy one, a sense of vague direction may sometimes be better as we are then more likely to explore along the journey and make serendipitous discoveries. Maybe vague ideas are at the heart of being creative. You have to have an idea of what you are going to do, but it should be a vague idea. Credit: Pablo Picasso
