CatalystCreativ Wysdem Talk | Can Wisdom Be Designed?

Exploring a model for systemising wisdom.

In March I got to both attend and speak at Catalyst Creativ Week, Las Vegas, which was founded in 2012 in partnership with Tony Hsieh’s Downtown Project.

As you’ll watch, the subject was nothing to do with social media, instead, my long overdue and yet-to-be-launched moonshot project exploring can wisdom be designed, wysdem.com and which I blogged about here.

The official line (although please judge for yourself above and leave any thoughts / guidance / ideas you have in the comments):

“DK was an engaging speaker at CatalystCreativ’s March Catalyst Week Showcase. He drew the audience into his talk with his research on how wisdom plays into systems and held their attention by posing important and thoughtful questions on this discussion. In his talk, he explored how wisdom plays into individual responsibility so that we can better understand how it plays into the systems around us.”
Evelyn Sabino, Communications & Events Manager at CatalystCreativ

WYSDEM | Big Wisdom Thinking For Businesses & Organisations

wysdem.com

Designing a system for wisdom.

My long-overdue moonshot project which has been brewing for the past 2/3 years is set for launch early 2015.

Still crafting the copy although here’s the current draft:

WYSDEM—big wisdom thinking for businesses, organisations & other systems.

Whether it be education, business, startups, governments, food production, economics, organisations, cities, online etc the delicious and driving question is, can wisdom be designed in?*

This project will explore and research the subject of humanising wisdom into our lives, our work, our designs, our businesses, our organisations, our leadership, our world. Featuring curated content, insightful provocations and crafted audio narratives, it will be a conversation. An approach of learning out loud, and being vulnerable.

An idea, manifesting in a voice, hopeful for an horizon to become clear.

*this is non-spiritual / religious project.

Current / Future Projects | Shifting Priorities

changed priorities ahead

Prioritising projects.

Taking inspiration from a recent conversation with Derek Sivers (and his ‘now’ post), here are six things I’m focussed on currently and in the near future:

  1. Advising / Speaking

    I mentor / coach one-to-one clients and throw together longer consulting services, for example, guiding a national sport association exploring the world of social, being part of a larger mentoring team for the UK arts and cultural sector, plus individually tutoring a social media manager for a major university explore sustainable strategies / practices.

    Sadly, the speaking market in New Zealand is extremely small and frugal hence the return trip to North America early 2015 where I already have several gigs lined up.

    This is how I pay the rent.

  2. Wysdem

    An idea being now born into a project which I’ve spoken about and written about before. More to follow next week.

  3. Social Media Automated Strategy Creator

    Currently in alpha testing mode, this little idea is nearly ready to share with the world (if you want to become a beta tester holler in the comments or ping through a message).

    It’s the manifestation of a simple and ongoing idea of extending peoples’ thinking beyond seeing social media as just a marketing platform.

  4. COMPLETED—check it out.

  5. TEDxWellington

    As the license holder / curator for NZ’s capital TEDx event, discussions have already started for next years offering. The highlights from this years review is that we sold out in under three hours, had 12 amazing talks / performances and entertained 400 curious souls in person (and 1,500 online during the stream).

  6. Real Life Has More Bandwidth

    A side project which crowdsources stuff you could never get online. Like hugs (and don’t send me this—close, but still not a hug, although what a lovely project).

  7. Sci-fi Trilogy Novel / Graphic Novel

    For the past few years I’ve been sharing with a few folks the plot to a sci-fi trilogy I once dreamed. Have never written any long-form fiction before although feeling buoyed by the initial responses with those I’ve shared it with.

If anyone has any thoughts or guidance on the above let us know. Let me know what you’re working on as well?
