Citizen Deliberative Councils can increase both the power of "We the People" and the quality of the decisions made and implemented with that power." -Tom Atlee, Co-Intelligence Institute

Resonant Guide Education, Open Source, Open Access Archives and..collections of free books and textbooks. An exellent example is Schoolforge, a foundry. Where you will find the information, the tools and materials you need to "forge" or make a school and all its parts. All free for the asking (or download), and, in the future, international in content and character, schoolforge is not a place or an organization, but a cause, and a collection of people and projects dedicated to it: bringing quality, affordable and dependable software and teaching materials to the people who need them around the world. As such, it is not a "service" so much as it is a community focal point, which, as much as anything else, represents an opportunity to get involved in one of its aspects.

Awareness Research While critics grow more concerned each day about the insecurity of electronic voting machines, Australians designed a system two years ago that addressed and eased most of those concerns: They chose to make the software running their system completely open to public scrutiny.

Community Thrivability Excerpt from Social Entrepreneurs and Conscious Capitalism, by Coolmel, March 2007

"Wikipedia defines social entrepreneurs as “someone who recognizes a social problem and uses entrepreneurial principles to organize, create, and manage a venture to make social change.” Ashoka describes social entrepreneurs as “individuals with innovative solutions to society's most pressing social problems.” The keywords here are “social problems” and “solutions.” In short, social entrepreneurs solve social problems (such as poverty, unemployment) to create a wide-scale social change without anticipation of substantial financial profit. In its attempt to define social entrepreneurship, the Stanford Social Innovation Review put it succinctly, “Social entrepreneurship signals the imperative to drive social change, and it is that potential payoff, with its lasting, transformational benefit to society, that sets the field and its practitioners apart.”

Conscious capitalism on the other hand is “creating a new paradigm for business,” to make corporations and businesses “conscious” about how they conduct their business. This includes infusing corporations and businesses with spirituality, corporate social responsibility (CSR), adoption of the triple bottom line (3BL) and other ethical business practices. In short, conscious capitalists (or business people engaging in conscious capitalism), put values first before profit. It's capitalism infused with “soul.” However, conscious capitalists are not necessarily recognized as entrepreneurs until they become “successful” with their business (see SSIR for details). And while conscious capitalists can also be social problem solvers, in general, conscious capitalists are exploiters of opportunity (or opportunity seekers) with a value proposition of gaining profit for themselves and/or for their investors, shareholders, and stakeholders.

Therefore, the main difference is: Social entrepreneurs are primarily (social) problem solvers without regard for profit. That's why many social enterprises are not-for-profit and have their grassroots planted in developing countries; While conscious capitalists are primarily opportunity seekers operating under the paradigm of conscious capitalism...

Awareness Research Something central to Imaginify is the awareness of community as a "network," and our response to the current trend of Social Network Analysis. This is a mathematical metaphor like imagining the universe is an automaton like mechanical clockwork, purely an abstraction for the purpose of simplicity and utility overlooking all the richness and complexity of real human and universal relationships.

Open Intellect One of the most concrete proposals appearing on the Augmented Social Networks list is a new proposal by Dr. Andrius Kulikauskas and team, calling for Effective Use of Marginal Internet Access. A collaborative effort by an enlightened self-interest group of activist individuals floated an open draft for the Soros Open Society Institute's Social Software Development grant program, whose announcement this summer spread like wildfire through the open development community.
