Subject: Shared whitespace - participants & funding

Hello all,

 

The last days we have been exchanging messages on “shared whitespace”.

Paul Pangaro is the originator of the concept and naming of shared whitespace.

 

Following the latest messages here, I use “shared whitespace” as a working name.

Isn’t this space a “conversation space”? Pask called it a “shared modeling facility” I believe.

Anyway, a proper name will be one which is accepted as a shared language by the participants in such a space.

 

Through exchanges with Paul and others, one outcome is the intention to form a work group to produce a first prototype.

I want to include Paul in this work group, since I estimate he has both the requisite background in Conversation Theory AND the expertise to design such a prototype.

 

Some of you on this listserv have expressed interest to participate.

For those interested, could you specify what kind of contribution you would like to make?

 

A very practical issue is finding funding for such a project.

Despite the “huge” potential value, Paul Pangaro hasn’t found an investor to produce this prototype over the last years.

I have experienced that Dutch government “innovation funding” is largely non-innovative, so I believe that is no option to proceed on.

 

So does anyone have suggestions on how to fund such a project and which parties could be of interest?

 

I’m looking forward to your responses.

 

 

Mike.
