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 reflection on System Change. I follow this with an analysis of the attending malfunctions. RLC

Sources for Synergy
There is a selection of ideas around the fine granular structures of synergy above and (here) balanced by the politics of it all. Synergy 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.” Typhus arrived in Athens in 430 B.C., killing one-third of the Athenian population. Observers still noted how one sufferer harmed another. Some things never change.
The interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations will produce an effect greater than the sum of separate efforts. For example, 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? Our 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.
- Polarized National Politics Will Kill Us
Regional governing bodies, their perils, and benefits
- Design Restorative Cities by Region
Produce urban recurrences through technology
- The Proof is the Problem
Data only has meaning in people face-to-face in a place.
- Density is the Answer for the Wilderness
Density can end planetary disruptions.
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. Thanks for your ideas on those four issues.
The “states” of the Republic are becoming political relics. New regional structures are forming rapidly as “corporations” empowered by the agreements of Governors. The short step-by-step, renewable version of the American Republic toward this logical end should follow the U.S. Constitution, but it is silent on this point. Only with the use of your own Hippocampus will this problem be solved. If you are an urbanist seeking the glory of density or an outlander of the city, hoping to save the forest from another billion little houses unite on containing urban regions and you both win. Explore, share, laugh at hopelessness. Everything is possible.
