More Lively Proximities — Help Each Other Session
Let's create more lively proximities by helping each other in five ProxThink-related areas. These include the Intro to ProxThink online course, the Shared Situations Guide, Shared Situation Collabs, the Artsdown approach and projects for Sustainable Variety. For newcomers, I'll start with a 15-20 minute intro to proximity thinking and the other projects. And for the rest of the meetup, I can help with each of these too. Here's how it might go: • Those who have taken the Let's Be More Alive — Intro to ProxThink online course can help others taking it or answer questions for those who haven't. Link to more info and the course ... • Those who are using the Shared Situation Guide can help those who just started or want to explore it. Link to more info and the guide ... • Those who are part of public Shared Situation Collabs (collaborations) can help those who want to join, start their own collab or join others. Link to more info and collabs ... • Those who are using the Artsdown approach can help others who aren't or who want to learn about it. Link to more info and Artsdown ... • Those who are pursuing Sustainable Variety can help others who are new to it or want to learn more. Link to more info as well as related projects and groups ... There will be name tags with boxes where you can check off the ProxThink-related areas you know about. And again, I can help in each of the areas if needed too. Bring your smartphone, and if possible a tablet or laptop as well. I'll email you more details about that closer to the event date. If you end up on the waitlist, WeWork says we can most likely get a larger room, so don't cancel your RSVP until we find out. I'll let you know. In pursuit of creating sustainable proximities and sustainable variety related to this meetup, there is no fixed fee for this meetup. Rather, please proxri those who help you, and proxri me for running this. (See for more about proxri.) To help people decide how to proxri you, you can show them your ProxMonitor, which helps them consider your circumstances. Below is a link to a suggested format for thinking about what to put on your ProxMonitor. I'll print out some forms similar to this for use at the meetup, which will also have space for ways to proxri you. WeWork is in the sky lobby of the red building at the Pacific Design Center (elevator button SL). We'll be in meeting room 7C. When you arrive at WeWork, check-in via the guest registration tablet at the front desk, as a guest of Marian Terenzio. Bring a photo ID. There is metered street parking. If you park on the street or arrive via public transit, make sure you enter the red building, as the green and blue buildings might be locked. More about onsite parking (max $10 after 4 pm) and how to get there, can be found at this WeWork page. I plan to host this meetup at a variety of places around the Los Angeles area. I'm also available to host it at your organization, building, event, etc. This event uses the ProxThink Terms of Use (, which boring as it is, is probably the friendliest terms of use you've seen. Why? Mainly because parts of it, including the Proxri Deal, Collaboration Deal, Online Session Agreement and Intellectual Property Deal integrate some of the proximity thinking framework. This makes it a better fit for our connected world. I hope you'll join us! —David Loughry

What we're about

We're learning some proximity thinking. We're applying it to personal, social, career and business challenges. We're also applying it personally and via mobile apps to challenges we share with other people in groups, organizations, neighborhoods, communities, the Los Angeles region and beyond. Proximity thinking is a proximity-focused framework for creativity, innovation, problem-solving, sustainability and living. You can learn more and use it on your own, if you like, at , or more quickly with an online course at . This group will help make learning and using proximity thinking more interactive and personal.
