An odd sort of day which started with my getting up before 0400 to make the 0601 train the Bonn and finished with me winning a bidding war on eBay auction with my last bid while watching the German humiliation of Brazil in a bar in the centre of town. The good Burghers of Bonn […]
Final day of the Summer School in Copenhagen and I had two sessions to run. The first over three hours in the morning covered complexity, safe-to-fail interventions followed by a shorted presentation in the afternoon where I picked up on Cynefin and the complex and chaotic domain models. The latter was a little rushed […]
An interesting day at the Summer Institute which ended gloriously with a long evening of discussion and story telling with Vernon Cronen and John Shotter at the conference dinner. All three of us products of a liberal arts education which meant the discussion ranged from Thurber's humour to comparing politics in the US to that […]
An interesting first day at the Summer Institute; we started with a Danish song about love and followed that with the normal talk with someone you don't know exercise. Now I am never wild about singing songs other than it Rugby matches, ideally in Welsh. It reminds me of the day I discovered there was […]
So today was the big day here in Ohio. I was the opening keynote and I had to get across the key theory behind the work we are doing here on health and well being as well as the practice. Given a variety of circumstances I couldn't get together with my partner in crime design […]
An evening arrival into Zurich followed by a short train ride and walk took me to the Hotel Greulich last night. Another to add to the list of design hotels around the world worth seeking out. One notable aspect is the silver birch plantation in the middle of the hotel which I have pictured. I will […]
I took that picture last night from the bedroom in the Fairmont Hotel here in Singapore. Part of the ever changing cityscape of Singapore. Today was the last day of the Foresight week and I didn't keep detailed notes as I was in part preparing for the final session of the day when our conference […]
So foresight week continues in Singapore and we move on to parallel events. One is on complexity and is in the main academic papers, the other is a Chatham House rules event (so what I can say is limited) on the future of governance. There are a few of us with a complexity background in […]
While yesterday's closing session at IRAHSS13 was creating on the move today's had more preparation. On day two I have lived through day one and have a sense of the overall structure of what I want to say to bring the whole event to an end. The overall theme was knowledge, what we know, what […]
