Background Fukushima Open Dialogue
- Since the nuclear catastrophe at Fukushima following the Tsunami in 2011 (wikipedia) the situation is still very difficult – there are efforts now in October 2013 to ask for help of international experts
- Living Bridges Planet network wants to be part of this process and facilitate building bridges
- There is a facebook group Fukushima Open Dialogue – The Asia Institute and I found that (as usually in groups like this) the facebook platform is extremely limited in usability, when one needs to share knowledge – this gave me an impulse, to create a collaborative space on google docs [web address will be published, when the structure is a bit more mature; the graphics shows an image cutout of a slide for brainstorming]
How to transform a Facebook group into a collaborative ecosystem?
- Facebook groups have very limited usability to organize knowledge flow and management. But many FB groups want to stay on facebook because of the reach and friends still being there.
- The solution is to combine the best of both worlds — facebook reach and Google+ collaboration tools, google docs (and possibly Google+ hangouts).
- The metaphors of river (fast moving information), pond (for accessible knowledge) – and table (for the synchronous communication and getting close) are very helpful to understand the workings of this minimal ecosystem.
