Northern Voice 2012

Personal Blogging and Social Media Conference
June 15th and 16th, 2012 in Vancouver, BC

Improv Me, baby. Gracefully falling off the cliffs of practice

The poet Guillaume Apollinaire wrote:
Come to the edge, he said.
They said: We are afraid.
Come to the edge, he said.
They came.
He pushed them... and they flew.

Perfection. Overrated. Certainty? You're crazy. Our participation in the (social) world cannot be predicated by "looking good" or having a perfect plan if we are to move our learning and our practices forward. The opportunity in the moment is a rich space. So prepare to be surprised. Plan and then go with the flow, even if that means abandoning your plans. Come play improv with Alan, Rob and Nancy (plus our richly surprising networks) as we explore the role of improvisation in our online lives and work. Heck, offline too. Why not? Come jump off the cliff and fly. We'll push a little. With love...
