The Collaborative Economy

Learn how things will shift massively. People are loved.The values are:Transparency, authenticity, and trust as a serviceIntegrityEmpowermentListeningCollaborationCreativityHuman touchCommunityPrinciples + ValuesLearn how co-creation + co-innovating through the digital and social transformation will happen by a peoples needs based approach.The leaders in technology in Silicon Valley are drooling by the P2P, Sharing economy and collaborative economy approach. It's bottom-up via pull and love.Don't miss out on the relationship economy through platform management (making communication visual for all). You are your own brand. A small example will be shown how one simple company can go from $200M to $2B in horizontal partnerships. We all have to think differently in these changing times. Look at the values and you can see direction of people before technical and feasible as it's all voice driven (education, politics, social, shopping, etc.).Design thinking for social impact defined (with everyone's involvement collaboratively). Open up the creativity for all via empowerment. A must not miss meeting GUARANTEED (unless you want to be left behind). It's all accessibility to visual communication. Everyone involved will make money and at the same time make everyone else better. If you can change your preconceived notions and defer judgment by de-plugging first join the meet-up. No entitlement please. We all empower one another.

University of Glasgow Photo Project

A former PSU student is looking for individuals to help her out with a Grad project for the University of Glasgow!Very simple, not much time commitment.Shoot her an Email if you are interested!I’m a Thai, and I graduated from Portland State University, Arts: Graphic Design in 2009.  Since then I received an M.Phil. from the Glasgow School of Art  in their Digital Design Studio, and now I am pursuing my Ph.D. at GSA and the University of Glasgow. My profile at the GSA is:,-sawitree/As part of my research into how faces vary by ethnicity, I am collecting frontal and lateral facial photographs of young adults of different ethnotypes.  I have a consent form that was approved by the GSA that individuals may sign, if willing to be photographed, and which explains how the photographs will be used.  The photographs, by the way, are all digitally combined into an ‘average’ face for each ethnicity. Then we are using some image processing techniques to measure the proportions of different faces.  Here are links to the FaceLab project at the University of Glasgow: looking for students connected, but not limited to Philippine, Thai, Indian, Latino, or Japanese student organizations.Her name is Sawitree.Let's see if Switchboard can't help an Alumni out!

I love tennis and am naturally not terrible at it, but I need a coach to help me get better and back in shape. Let's play at PSU a few days per week. (I live 3 blocks away). You don't have to be a pro, just good -- maybe you played high school or are on the PSU team. If you can commit I'll pay you $20 an hour up to 3 times per week to be my coach.

Throwing your identity away

Companies and individuals are throwing their identities away right and left without them realizing it. This creates an anti-competitive world. Do you wake up in the morning saying, "I want to be awesome today! I will empower others including myself?".Think before you speak. De-plug before you plug in. Your future depends on you understanding the consequences of what you are leaving behind. Your digital footprint and others around you. You have two ears and one mouth. Empowerment is the future.What's your purpose? "Do unto others as they would have you do unto them"Our dealings are often quick transactions. Treating people as if they were vending machines. The world will slow down and take time to develop quality relationships.We are in a phase of a massive communication breakdown (with little listening going on). Let's all learn together the benefits of work/life balance through design in culture. Trust, transparency, and authenticity in business will come forward.Accessibility with conversations is what we are all after. Open platforms and aspiring communities. The consumer will come first as it's pull versus push going inbound in the future. People are the engine.Please join an amazing opportunity on creative confidence by all. meeting will be outlined before we first meet to get the creativity flowing so you can bring idea creation to it. No idea is a bad idea. New ideas are always in the flow and we build upon them. We set aside preconceived notions and defer judgment.

The "WHY"

Angela Ahrendts had the winning formula with Burberry combining on-line with off-line solutions (a reason she's at Apple now). She inspired her employees and end consumers in an aspirational community. Profitability comes from everyone connected in contextual meaning. Join this exciting meet up group of creatives and empowered individuals. A human centered approach to technology. Cross pollinating success stories of what works and what doesn't. Living in the moment (Albert Einstein) with technology does. Or, as Google would say social engagement + micro-moments is the future. It's all listening and not likes. Production for the masses. Community management by design in culture.

Small is beautiful, Economics if People Mattered

Putting a human face on technology? Theory comes from practical understanding and observation. Synthesize experiences from principles and theory. Is it mobile first? Maybe it's culture first. The most revolutionary meet-up you won't want to miss as it's people needs first. As we are accustomed to things, wants, and money it's quite the opposite. It's community management with mass personalization at scale. Learn how privacy, security and identities will come forth by empowerment first in IAAS all the way down to the individual.Design through creativity is the only way out. Such an inspirational time in history as this meet-up is focused on not mass production but production by the masses that supports an ecosystem. Don't miss out on connecting humans and nature.
