Patterns for… by Richard D. Bartlett

I’m not so interested in what you’re working on together, I’m just going to focus on how you do it. To my way of thinking, it doesn’t matter if you’re trying to build a better electric vehicle, or develop government policy, or blockade a pipeline; whenever you work with a group of people on a shared objective, there’s some stuff you’re going to deal with, some challenges. How do we decide what we’re working on?

Who does what? Who can join our team? I’m convinced there is not a “one size fits all” recipe, a management structure that you can take off the shelf and install in your collective or your company. This is a book for community organisers, leaders, managers, consultants, coaches, facilitators, founders... if you work with groups of humans, these patterns apply to you. Why publishing a work in progress? This book is not 100% complete yet. The Guerrilla Translation Handbooks - Guerrilla Media Collective Wiki.

Current edition: Summer 2019 The following is extracted from Let Me Handbook That For You: A User's Guide To Open Value Cooperativism, our introductory article to the handbooks: Documentation is a very important aspect of the work that we do in Guerrilla Translation. As an experiment in Open Value Cooperativism, we expect to make mistakes and discover new ideas as we develop, grow and maintain our collective. Guerrilla Translation’s first major documentation project was the Guerrilla Media Collective Wiki. Here is where we keep track of the online versions of the Handbook and what changes have gone into them.

It can be represented in a visual diagram, as a narrative, or both.A theory of change can be developed at the beginning of a piece of work (to help with strategic planning), or to describe an existing piece of work (so you can evaluate it). It is particularly helpful if you are planning or evaluating a complex, initiative but can also be used for more straightforward projects. See more in our summary of the uses of theory of change.It is helpful to involve a variety of stakeholders when you develop a theory of change – you could include staff, trustees, beneficiaries, partners and funders. The development process, and the thinking involved, is often as important as the diagram or narrative you produce.

So let’s break that circular dependency between time and trust. The difference between trusting a person/an entity and trusting data is key here. How can we establish trust in the data, specifically in the time information, without trusting the individual messenger of this data? This is, in fact, leads to the same problem that Satoshi Nakamoto set out to solve with bitcoin the first blockchain network. Conveniently for our quest to getting the current time without trusting anyone both trustless blockchains Bitcoin and Ethereum carry a timestamp in their block. When HTC announced that their new Handheld Exodus 1s will be running a full Bitcoin node that immediately raised eyebrows. Just 20kb to validate the blockchain.
