More About Us

As a bit of background:
We launched both The Conversation and The Campfire on Saturday, July 4, 2020, at 6 a.m. Pacific time, and kept it open a full 24 hours.

These days, through the late evening of Tuesday July 14, we will be hosting the Harmonic Convergence After Party in The Lounge from 6 p.m. Pacific time until we run out of cosmic steam 😉

The above zoom link is the same as the link to Radish.org’s 24-hour Collective Intelligence Block Party which runs from 7 a.m. Friday morning through 7 a.m. Saturday morning, Pacific time – right up to the start time of The Lounge, per above.

All are welcome to join any part of the Block Party – please see http://radish.org/block-party/  for details.

The Basic Idea of The Conversation and The Campfire

Here is the basic idea, our current vision of how this all could evolve:

We are launching an ongoing “network of conversations”, with a hub-and-spoke architecture, as follows:

The Conversation is the provisional name for the network of conversations, whose closest analog is World Unity Week’s Trello board of conversations to choose from.

The Campfire is the provisional name for the hub of the network.

By default everyone, and especially newcomers, start at The Campfire.  The Campfire, as its name implies, is “casual and comfortable”, and professionally managed, all with a view to maximizing the feeling (and reality) of welcoming, compassion, love, respect, radical inclusivity and safety for ALL guests, and especially first-time visitors.

In addition, after the top priority of welcoming newcomers to The Conversation, The Campfire also seeks to be a “smart hub” for sharing information about what is happening in the *other* conversations throughout the network.  This Hub of conversations is called The Conversation.  

So for example, a typical “moment in the life of The Campfire” might go as follows:

·      A newcomer (let’s call her “Newbie”) arrives in The Campfire, and is welcomed warmly

·      After some brief conversation about “what this is all about” (The Conversation, The Campfire, etc.), Newbie is welcomed to either hang out in The Campfire as long as she likes, OR she can choose to venture out into the various other conversations throughout the network (The Conversation).
