I have been looking back at the website for the Institute for Advanced Studies at Lancaster. I still think about Experimentality and learning loops as in Deming. Found this quote again -
Programme Director, Bronislaw Szerszynski , says:
"the idea of the experiment carries many of modernity’s greatest hopes - and greatest fears. We need a concerted attempt to understand the nature of experimentation, in order to explore how we might use it to shape the future in more benign and inclusive ways"
.Ustopia might be useful as a way to include hope and fear in the same package, see previous post. I hope to be in Lancaster next month. As I remember the space where the IAS was is now a project about literacy and postcards. I wonder what the critique of postcards was at the time, ( Edwardian UK ) ?
Ustopia still fits well with a radio show approach. Balances out different views and the presenter can start with a mix.
