I’ll be touring Europe this summer with the intention of learning the secrets of success in social innovation from experienced practitioners.
I’ve decided to harvest the stories, wisdom and insight that I learn along the way into an attractive deck of cards, such that the key concepts are easily digestible and can be assembled into mind maps.
I’m wondering how these cards could be incorporated into art of hosting/harvesting so that as new wisdom emerges, it can be crystallized into card form and added to the body of knowledge.
Key to the success of such a deck would be the template design into which the content would be placed. There needs to be enough flexibility to allow for a wide diversity of ideas, solutions, stories, etc but also enough order such that the cards can be organized into comprehensible mind-maps.
So I’m looking for the right categorization structure. Perhaps the Chaordic Stepping Stones would work well? What other ontologies have you found to be useful for organizing thinking about social innovation?

Over the last few days, I’ve been working with Alan Rosenblith to explain the MetaCurrency project in simple terms. Here is the presentation that we created to that end
Yesterday I toured around Portland looking at collaborative work spaces and programs that support social innovation with my friend Renata.
First, we met with Mark Grimes, co-founder of Ned Space, Ned.com and Ned Water. He graciously spent a few hours with us, offering his advice about starting co-working spaces, his experiences putting on Maker Faire Africa, and general musings on startup social enterprise.
Ned has two spaces in Portland and is open to creating locations worldwide. A few shots of their spaces:
Next, we had lunch at a hip art gallery/coffeeshop/event venue called Backspace. Some shot of the awesome art that was on the walls:
After downing a BBQ tempeh wrap and a bottle of kombucha, we stopped by a chic co-working space called Souk.
After Souk, we had to patronize the locally famous Voodoo Doughnuts. And yes, that is real bacon on top of a maple bar.
Then we hopped across the river and drank some hard cider with Sara and my friend Alan Rosenblith. Sara is putting together an Innovation Incubation Lab called Hatch! After a few drinks, we went to an event on social enterprise put on by Springboard Innovation, one of Hatch’s partners.
As usual, Portland is inspiring, fun and feels like home.
Here’s an update on what’s new in my life:
