The government policies that shape our work, families and lives could be better, and we all know it. We're Expert Labs, and we know one thing that will make policy better: Get more people involved. We help agencies in federal, state and local government listen to the ideas and insights of citizens. And we help ordinary citizens who aren't lobbyists or insiders or politicians get their voices heard by policy makers simply by using social networks like Twitter and Facebook. How it works Government Can Use the Internet to Listen, Not Just to Talk.

Sometimes I start with a simple thought on Twitter, decide to take it to the next level, and before I know it things have gone entirely out of hand and I’ve gone from a simple tweet about missing NY bagels to a fully produced bagel love song posted on SoundCloud in a matter of hours. This time, it started with some simple microwave advice. I ended up live-tweeting while I made a video in 2 hours, and I figured I should get it all formatted in a post before it disappears into the unsearchable depths of twitter forever. Might as well add some further details on what went on too, if you’re interested in a thorough case-study of how one might go about making a weird video.

Call for Proposals The 2012 theme of OKFestival is Open Knowledge in Action . We will focus on the value that can be generated by opening up knowledge, the ecosystems of organisations that benefit from and participate in sharing, and the impact that open knowledge can have in our societies. What kinds of new professions, ideas and community initiatives can emerge within our governments, markets, networks and neighbourhoods as a result of these engagements? The exploration of this theme will not only be visible in the festival’s content, but also in its implementation as the first global event of its kind. At OKFestival, we will experiment with new forms of collaboration, new workshop formats and new forms of participation. We’ll bring together civil society representatives, programmers, data wranglers, designers, students, members of government and local communities for a week of building new things and sharing great ideas.

The evolving self: a psychology for the third millennium - Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation) there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. — W.H.Murray, Leader of the Scottish Himalayan Expedition in the 1950s. What is a 10X Commitment? A "10X Commitment" is the label we're using for a personal commitment to a radical shift in the lasting difference you're making in your world. Personal 10x Commitments
Alan Sasha Lithman's ground-breaking book, An Evolutionary Agenda, describes our transformational challenge as a species—moving from Homo Egoicus to Homo Transitionalis. The following paragraph provides a fitting context for this "Chrysalis Work" offering: This transformational will-to-change distinguishes itself from our more ordinary uses and conceptions of will in that it implies a will to change everything, including the way we use our will.

"Intuition for Starters is a small book on the basics of intuition and following your intuition. While there are several books on the subject available and many more that have a chapter on intuition, this book is unique in one very important aspect. It is the only book I have seen on intuition that effectively explains how to know when something is intuition and when it is not. Intuition for Starters by Swami Kriyananda (J.
