#PKyvr33 Day 1: Working Out Loud On A Live Project – Let’s Do This Thing #WOLyo!

A confluence of conversations and events leads me to this point. It’s time to put some skin in the game and work out loud (in the internet open) on a project.

  • I worked out loud ‘under the stairs’ for a week at work to challenge myself about what sharing and #unSquirrel really means. I wanted to get away from technology, and into the real-time space of the person to person economy.
  • I spoke about the initiative with various online contacts and one – @AustenHunter – suggested a #WOLweek. Sure!
  • I attended #FUELvan conference and the organizer –  Susan Cox, who also puts on Pecha Kucha Vancouver – mentioned how it was a learning experiment to see how people can come together to effect change. I mentioned to her how I undertook my own iterative learning process. She suggested I present at PK YVR. Sure!
  • I realized how meta this is: a PK about WOLyo through PKs including one about PKs. Then I thought, I can get even further caught up my own iterative wormhole by…WOLyo about the PK about WOLyo through PKs including one about PKs.

 

This is how #WOLyo! officially eats itself. You are welcome.

I started making some notes, notes I already know are incomplete and misleading and scattered. A perfect illustration of WOL – emergent learning through practice and discourse and iteration and failure.

So, over the coming days I will work out loud on the development of my pecha kucha. Wish me luck.

    1. “yo” has two parts:
      1) I throw yo at the end of sentences a lot to signify ‘right?’ or ‘eh’ or ‘!” – so it adds a little oomph to the #.
      2) I wanted the # to stand out from a meme perspective. #WOL can be used in many ways #WOLyo! is better branded. ha.
      Thanks for asking yo!
