Scenes, Collaborations, Inventions, And Progress

I've been in various discussions over the years about how to either create or do-better-at group-forming for support groups, collaborations, scenes, hubs/nexus, movement, or innovation, huge invention to solve grand challenges, or progress and evolution via collective intelligence and collective action...

It's often unclear whether the participants in a given discussion are sharing the same vision, which reduces the odds of creating a plausible promise...

Because a pattern successful for 1 outcome is not necessarily going to help a different one.

My focus is on the digital garden collective intelligencehuge inventionprogressevolution side.
