The Systems Thinking category on discuss.openlearning.cc aims to be a venue for conversations that will persist over time.
Individuals may change institutions (e.g. graduate, or retire, from universities), change their affiliations (e.g. roles or jobs within an organization), or have had their information content orphaned by an Internet provider that has decided its services are infeasible for continuation.
The Open Learning Commons shares many of the values of the Digital Life Collective in Tech We Trust. Additionally, the community aims to share content with others under Creative Commons BY-SA conditions.
Complementary places that share similar values include:
- The Systems Community of Inquiry, at https://stream.syscoi.com/ .
- The prior Model.Report site, prior to January 2018, exists at http://syscoi.com/model.report/model.report/newest.html as a stabilized site (i.e. the dynamic content has been converted to static content, don’t bother trying to search!)
Places where others have congregated include:
- The Ecology of Systems Thinking at https://www.facebook.com/groups/774241602654986/
- System Sciences (closed in December 2018)
Encouraging individuals to join an community based on open source software, hosted by a UK-based cooperative, is a signal of hope for the future.
