GroupSense Online Groups


"Online Groups enable people to work, learn and build shared knowledge-bases together at their own time, their own place and their own pace. Online Groups foster and facilitate innovation, learning, collaboration and knowledge-sharing.
GroupSense partners with organisations to establish self-sustaining Online Groups that achieve specific purposes.

Online Groups use simple technology that requires only standard email. GroupSense provides Planning, Design, Training and Hosting to establish Participation Habits that maximise the value of each Online Group."

This is my friend & colleague Dan Randow's site. Business is thriving, and I am pleased to be working with the team as a part time consultant. I have been in on discussions and planning from the start but only this year have I begun to work professionally, as a host. The GroupSense approach makes sense - it is essential to work with *people first*, it is only from knowing people and the organisation that we can design the group structure and format.

Online Therapy Articles

These articles are all related to online therapy. Considered a rapidly growing field, online therapy has been subject to controversy. While some professionals argue that the face-to-face therapy relationship cannot be duplicated online and worry about ethical standards, others argue that the Internet offers new ways of reaching people.

More from the Catalyst site, useful items here. Thanks Richard

I've been working on getting this weblog to look right, for me at least. I think it is getting there. It is nice to use.

Have just added the "Spyonit" above. You can tell it to look for some particular prase, or let it notify you anytime there is a change - by email - or WAP or pager etc.

Let me know what you think.

Daimon Publications

Spring 54 - 1993 - Reality

Articles by James Hillman, Wolfgang Giegerich, David L. Miller, and Edward Casey

The subject that turned the 1992 Notre Dame Festival of Archetypal Psychology into a brawl! Spring 54 prints the paper: Giegerich on "Killings," Miller on "Animadversions," Casey on "Place." Plus Protestant Reality, Sonu Shamdasani on Automatic Writing, Hillman's "Blue Note," and more.

I ordered it. It looks right on topic for - Keywords: psyberspace work.

Home Page Architecture: Social Psychological Principles by Leon James in Hawaii

More from professor James - good on "place"...

"My Home Page is my other house. It sits in cyberspace. I had a difficult time explaining why I call a bunch of computer files on my drive by the name of "my house" or "my home." He had a bunch of folders and files on his computer and he didn't see why he should call this his house. Well, that's not it. I don't use the term "my home" for just any bunch of computer files around. But these particular files are connected to the Internet. This means that millions of people could look at them, at any time, and read them, or copy them to their own computer. In fact any navigator in cyberspace who lands on your Home Page can copy them at the flick of the mouse. For all I know my Home Page, or sections thereof, can have thousands of duplicates of itself all around the world."

The Religion of Technology : The Divinity of Man and the Spirit of Invention
by David F. Noble

The Amazon site it worth it for the reviews. See also: the review by John McLaughlin, which begins:

"In a recent review for the online journal Kairos, I referred to Ray Kurzweil's The Age of Spiritual Machines as a brilliant book "with a hole in the middle." That hole was the lack of any extended discussion of the concept of spirituality, in the context of nanotechnology, genetic engineering, and photon-based computing, Kurzweil's actual subjects. What could "spirituality" mean in such a context?"

I hate the ads - especially now they are on top of the emails - but this must still be the path to the future of groups online. Is there a more public or open source alternative?
