Where Do We i-Go From e-Here?

Author: the Inkslinger

That was the central question posed at our internet charette, which was held Wednesday and Thursday of this week.

What is an charette exactly? I really had no idea, but it turns out it’s a creative space in which a big giant brain dump/intellectual distillation can take place. You invite a lot of different people with different experiences and perspectives and ask them to spend some time ruminating on a certain subject, in this case what our internet presence should do and be. Everything from the big vision stuff to the nuts and bolts. No rules except that you should leave all preconceived notions at the door and feel free to break whenever you need one.

There was an intense amount of cranial power gathered in the room. Had we been able to physically tap it, the collective mind could have powered Burlington’s electric grid, I’m sure.

Tomorrow: Totally Cool or Kinda Creepy?

So earlier this week I circulated a link to an interesting video about things to come and asked a few inspired protagonists here and there what they thought.

The future in the video is the future that is being built behind our backs. It is a question whether this is what the Buddhist tradition might call the "right" path... Funny how the designers of this path have not increased love and a genuine sense of humanity to all. Odd how we keep depending on the machine to be consciousness and not develop
our own deep sense of consciousness. This is why we need to think future and be designers of a more conscious world...

Here’s the video

Here’s the commentary it drew in our own circle:

This Week Around the Blogosphere

Here I am again with more comments on what people are enjoying or learning while using Seventh Generation products.

On the Ecotality blog, Steve Caratzas writes an article titled, “When You Gotta Go, Go Green.” He describes his admiration for Seventh Generation and appreciates the efforts and knowledge expressed by Seventh Generation. It is great to hear that someone is using the information on the website to educate people on how to make their homes clean for themselves and the environment.

On another blog, Three Million Moments, there is a post titled “A Green Home is a Good Home.” The author explains how her and her husband decided to “really” clean their bathroom. They decided to use the last of the “happy bubble scrub” even though it is hazardous. The smell of the remembered freshly clean bathroom as a child was anticipated. To their surprise, the couple felt guilty for using this product and had to air out the house before they felt it was safe for the family to breathe inside again. It is nice to hear that the consumer will return to equally effective natural cleaning product brands like Seventh Generation. Welcome back!

Around the Blogosphere...

While looking at other bloggers who use our product, encourage others to live non-toxic lives, and generally promote everything we work for here at Seventh Generation, I became inspired. Reading about others’ passions and missions to save the Earth is incredibly rewarding. On the blog Something Good, O My Goodness writes about the irony of having to hide away the toxic cleaning products you spray all over your home. She rarely has children at her home, however when the occasion does occur, she realized safety is an important issue. She advises placing the toxins out of reach of children and away from food, but especially using non-toxic products to begin with.

Another blog that caught my eye was The Good Human. David from California writes about the bizarre advertisements promoting pouring bleach where children play, eat and pee. David notes that bleach is an extremely toxic chemical with harsh side affects if contact is made. Again, solutions are proposed and replacing this harsh chemical with safe products that cause no side effects is feasible. It is truly exciting to read in their own words how people are enjoying the positive results of using Seventh Generation.

The Latest Presence in Our Office

It was my great pleasure last week to welcome Otto Scharmer to our office. Otto co-authored the book Presence with Peter Senge and he brought his students from MIT to our office to explore Seventh Generation and to ask questions about any and all aspects of the company.

They were a great group and a handful of people from various departments spent five hours with them talking about what seemed like everything under the sun in a conversation that was as profound as it was probing. As worthwhile as the time was for Otto and his students, it was a tremendous experience for us as well, and I wanted to share Otto’s e-mail to me about the day

My Being Needs a New Iteration

Life is in a constant state of change whether we like it or not. Who I was last year – even last month – is not who I need to be tomorrow. This is true of everyone who is comitted to their own personal growth and development. If you are running a business or organization of any type it’s something that you simply must keep in mind. If your business is growing like ours it's critical. Here are my most recent reflections, my thoughts on where I need to be next. I share it in the hopes that in some way it might help move you to your next stage of being.

help me guys - I live or is it work or is it play in this 7th Gen world of multi-leveling-happenings that both
hum in the present and mold in the future, and I want the hum to leak out into the world so others can grab
a moment and carry it out into their moments until we all reach that one moment where we are...

...not sure, haven't been there yet...
