Here are some sketch notes from a three-day Open Space Technology facilitator training I just did with Lisa Heft in San Francisco. Open Space is a process for holding meetings and conferences that is participant-driven and known for starting without an agenda. Particularly interesting to me is the potential for bringing visual tools into this process.
Lisa’s great and I would highly recommend her workshops.
Here are some images I created last week in Toronto for Alex Osterwalder’s Business Model Workshop and Masterclass. His groundbreaking, highly-visual method is the basis of the popular book, Business Model Generation.
Here’s an image from the book On the Writing of the Insane (1870) by G. Mackenzie Bacon, medical superintendent at an asylum near Cambridge, England. Surprisingly similar to what I do for a living. And I’m a little crazy.
The brilliant cartoonist, and big inspiration for me since my humble beginnings, Lynda Barry, is teaching a course at the University of Wisconsin called, The Unthinkable Mind. It’s a deep dive into the connection between neuroscience the act of making marks on paper. It’s fascinating. She posts her class assignments and all sorts of goodies on her tumblr. I’ve been lurking there quite a bit and I recommend that you check it out.
