Networking with Futurists Communities

How might we discover futurists communities and connect with Infinity Family?

YAML [編輯]

Infinity Family has aspirational ideals, but also has a working system where people can self-organise into groups and pursue meaningful projects together. In the future, the same system promises to enable people to live by working on ideas directly in society, i.e. by running public projects or working in open companies online.

The mission would only be achieved when certain conditions are met:

  • Enough people in society are following this behaviour of "living by working on ideas directly in society" so that it has ripple effects in wider networks and changes social norms from "get a job" to "run an open project"

  • Enough people need to be running such open projects on the system

  • Enough companies need to be running their operations on the system, so that others interested in freelancing can work with them openly

So it seems to me that Infinity Family could experiment and welcome more people to join and share openly about project and perhaps even companies updates.

The question is:

How could Infinity Family develop partnerships with people interested in world building? Where are those communities of imaginative futurists? How could we link and cross share between Infinity Family and futurists communities?

p.s. this post is sparked by our monthly meetup where members shared their project updates and curiosity what else we can discover together if more people and more diverse people share!

我想知道,社區現在使用什麼工具將人們組織成組?也許他們可以使用 Infinity 作爲工具來創建記錄參與者貢獻的項目頁面。

假設一個非營利組織 X 想要啓動一個關於原因 Y 的研究項目,當他們獲得一組爲期 6 個月的研究員時。他們可以使用 Infinity 創建一個開放項目,所有研究員都可以公開分享他們的研究結果作爲“結果”,並附上他們半生不熟的文件和“小時”的鏈接,這個非營利組織作爲項目所有者可以分發通過系統支付獎學金。

開放研究和分享半生不熟的結果的好處與衆包的好處相同——在研究過程中接觸到新想法。此外,公共問責制根據公開分享的調查結果調整研究方向。例如,在各種獎學金計劃中,與實際研究過程相比,最終論文中的內容很少。如果研究人員更頻繁地分享他們的發現,他們可以在進行過程中產生更多有價值的知識。而且,遲早要影響社會。因爲社會可以閱讀半生不熟的見解(作爲結果共享)並立即在此基礎上進行創作。

我跑題了...

從這裏對我來說,Infinity 似乎真的可以像一個內容管理工具一樣工作,而不是將研究筆記保存在 Google Docs 和 Slack 頻道中,而是將這些筆記作爲特定開放研究項目的公共結果發佈在 Infinity 上。

I wonder, what tools communities now use to organise people into groups? Perhaps they could use Infinity as a tool to create a project page where participant contributions are logged.

Say a non-profit X wants to initiate a research project about cause Y, when they get a group of fellows for a duration of 6 months. They could use Infinity to create an open project where all fellows would openly share the findings of their research as "Results" with links to their half-baked documents and "Hours" attached, and this non-profit as a project owner could distribute the fellowship payments through the system.

The benefit of open research and sharing half-baked Results is the same benefit of crowd-sourcing - exposure to new ideas in the process of researching. Also, public accountability to adjust the research direction based on the findings shared publicly. In various fellowship programmes for example so little is captured in the final papers compared to the actual research journey. If researchers share their findings more frequently, they could produce more valuable knowledge as they go. And also, to impact the society sooner than later. Because society could read the half-baked insights (shared as Results) and create on top of that straight away.

I went off-topic...

From here to me it seems that Infinity could work like a content management tool really, where instead of keeping Research notes in Google Docs and Slack channels, these notes would instead be published on Infinity as public Results for specific open research projects.


這是實幹家未來主義者社區的另一個成員/用戶故事:

假設一個未來主義者社區開始在週末的訓練營中與一羣設計師和技術專家一起創建關於 Y 世界建設的原型。他們可以使用 Infinity 創建一個開放項目,在該項目中,所有執行者都可以公開分享他們的創作作爲“結果”,並附上他們半生不熟的原型和“小時”的鏈接,作爲項目所有者的這個社區可以在一個地方通過系統。

開放原型設計和共享半成品結果的好處是可以在構建過程中接觸到潛在的原型測試人員。例如,在黑客馬拉松和各種創作者計劃中,與實際開發過程相比,最終展示中捕獲的內容很少,實幹者總是害怕與他們創作的潛在用戶交談。如果實幹者更頻繁地在系統上公開分享他們的發現,他們可以在開發過程中產生更有價值的原型,並在構建過程中形成用戶社區。

And here's another member/user story for doer futurists communities:

Say a futurists community starts creating prototypes about world building for cause Y with a group of designers and technologists over a weekend bootcamp. They could use Infinity to create an open project where all doers would openly share their creations as "Results" with links to their half-baked prototypes and "Hours" attached, and this community as a project owner could showcase the prototypes in one place through the system.

The benefit of open prototyping and sharing half-baked Results is access - exposure to potential prototype testers in the process of building. In hackathons and various creator programmes for example so little is captured in the final showcases compared to the actual development journey and doers are always afraid to talk to potential users of their creations. If doers share their findings more frequently openly on the system, they could produce more valuable protoypes as they go and form communities of users in the building process.
