I had two great, short phone calls with US colleagues last night. Hearing their voices (rather than reading their tweets) had an unexpected effect: I felt more “in community” and I learned something I really needed to know to do my work. I really “felt” them, it was great.
Triggered by this, and by projects I am working on, I had a crazy random thought today (this is how I get all my best ideas!) I want to share it here because I cannot take it on right now, but someone else might want to run with it…
What would a virtual AgileCoachCamp look like? One where we could hear one another’s voices, without disrupting our home lives by flying across oceans?
Who’d come? Who’d set it up?
What am I talking about? Here are some pointers…
- AgileCoachCamp http://www.deborahpreuss.com/abiggergametoday/unconferencing-an-un-expected-delight/
- OpenSpace online http://www.openspace-online.com
- cMOOC http://www.abiggergame.today/pulling-learning-mooc/
And, as always, a reminder: there is no right way to do this, we get to
MAKE UP OUR OWN RULES! http://www.deborahpreuss.com/abiggergametoday/make-up-your-own-rules/
Now, back to my projects. On Monday we will play FearlessJourney with 300 people! Lots to do, and lots of great people to do it with… :-) I hope your projects are equally exciting!
Cheers to all my friends and colleagues out there… in the real world!
(and now, I will tweet about this blog, LOL. There is no escaping the interwebs.)
