If you have stumbled across this forgive me, but if I directed you as a prospective partner, or purchased your services, double forgive me. The only political leadership thing I’m working on now involves is a period of reflection on System Change. I follow this with an analysis of the attending malfunctions.

Stimulate Your Hippocampus


The interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations will produce an effect greater than the sum of separate efforts. Tweet-O-Rama will allow you to scan messages from about one-hundred change agent organizations and people. The question: How and on what issues do they combine to produce a greater effect?

Synergy is old Attic Greek. It is a practice nearly forgotten and greatly needed during interesting times. The Greek poet Archilochus put it best: “The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog one big thing.” The plague arrived in Athens in 430 B.C., and one-third of the Athenian population died of typhus. While before personal protection equipment, observers still noted how helping one sufferer harmed another. Some things never change.


  • Polarized National Politics Might Kill Us All.
    Regional governing bodies, their perils, and benefits
  • Design Restorative Cities and Buildings by Region
    Produce positive urban recurrences through technology
  • The Proof is the Only Problem.
    Data only has meaning in people standing face-to-face in a place.
  • Density is the Answer.
    Density can end planetary disruptions.

My work gets organized, energized, or unified and mashed up by building a set of posts that allows us to scan messages from change agent organizations (here). Stories on urban life issues and people’s voices in political leadership intent on building the proof we need to become our better selves. One well-established vision calls for metropolitan regions with complete fiscal control. The force for this change is drawn from a simple observation.

The “states” of the Republic are becoming political relics. The short step by step, renewable version toward this logical end should follow in the use of your own Hippocampus:

These are not matters for debate. The topics of “ends” are questions of values, and on values, the reasons are silent. Combining interests to produce a larger impression is mostly personal, with a modest search for others seeking to share interactions capable of creating more than separate effects at the bottom of the system change ladder. Therefore, the beginning is political before all, else in a world where people wander in pairs. Maybe they become part of a few “groups.” It is there where you could come across Dick and Perry or Amos and Daniel or something in between. It really isn’t up to us to know if or when, why, or how. Bill Moyer called it a “guiding hand” and left it alone…so that’s the plan.
