Janine Harris sent me her notes from Jean Richardson's "Radical Inclusivity" session. She captured a bunch of things that I missed in my notes.
Social Exploration a la Burning Man
Expanding our minds beyond dualistic thinking
Why care about consciousness?
Collaboration leads to higher states of consciousness
Within the tech community, there is consciousness hacking ("co-hacking")
Meet ups in Palo, Alto, NYC, etc.
Concepts been around since the 1920's
Ken Wilber's "Integral Consciousness"
Within the software industry
Can do experiments around consciousness raising (Agile transformations)
Human Systems Dynamics (HSD) - it's hard to see the whole system
TED Talk by Jill Bolte Taylor "My Stroke of Insight"
Poetry helps us deal with dualism by saturating [sic] with metaphor
Metaphor can help teams move forward
We can access genius and talents when we let go of labels and roles
People are not as separate as they think they are
If people fear connection, they may not be connected themselves [internally]
When "trying" it [achieving a higher state of consciousness] doesn't work
Can trigger negativity in others when you dance around the edge of the wormhole
Sometime people don't come "out" of the wormhole, the real world can be tough when "soft"
"Re-entry" from Jim and Michele McCarthy's "Software for Your Head"
Meditation is only one form of being on the "inside"
Conscious hacking chapter in Portland
Notice when it's not happening and try to correct it out of the system
Practices that build more conscious software and developers
Pairing, TDD, refactoring
Mobbing (respect, kindness, consideration)
These could be considered "crude" in a "primitive" sort of way
Today, we have the raw materials
We expect that these tools will evolve
What could raise consciousness as a team?
Assertive, respectful, deeply engaged in conflict, not avoiding conflict
Books and other resources
Portland State University

Fantastic conference! Thank you!
Here’s session notes for my session:
Friday 11-11:50am Session 9: Fight Club.
Vikram Shevde & Fred Wright
Slalom Agile Coaches
The Fight Club session allowed participants to take sides (red team vs blue team) on various Agile Topics and debate them. The format was 2 minutes for each team to huddle and develop their key points, followed by 1 minute for each side to present their case. This was followed by 30 second rebuttal rounds for both teams. Then on to the next topic.
For the final 5 minutes we looked at each topic and identified the common "why?" that was shared by both sides, since most of these differences of opinion are "how" questions.
The group was then rewarded for discovering their why's by getting a bonus debate on T-shaped resources vs specialists!
