2018 PEOPLE: How to become a group facilitator in 7 easy steps



How to become a group facilitator
in 7 easy steps


The secret of facilitating a group is (1) to notice what actions the group needs to function effectively.  And (2) to fill in the actions where needed.  The key is to observe the functioning of the group and supply the needed actions. Here is a summary of the actions you will probably need.

1. Find a few task-oriented groups.  Join them. 

  • Pay attention to what the other people are doing.
  • Note how that is affecting the progress towards the group objectives.
  • Note what actions are needed to help the group make better progress.
  • The main needs are likely to be:
  • Door opening, agenda watch, road-map, action-items, starter-closer.
  • Group facilitator

2018 TECH: PEOPLE: Web-worlders will want their own portable database on their own computers


Will web-worlders want 
a portable asset database
to travel the web-worlds?

Hypergrid technology is creating a grid-independent world-wide community of virtual worlders.   Web-worlds may expand that community.   When we travel to different grids, we want to take our avatar and maybe selected assets. with us.  We can do that on the Hypergrid, but not across web worlds.  At least not yet.
Presentation Walk

  • In OpenSim, your avatar and other assets are in a database on your home grid.
  • Each stored item is a data-description of what it is to look like and do when rendered.
  • In Hypergrid, when you take your avatar to another grid, your home grid sends a copy of that data-description to the other grid.  
  • We hypergridders already have a portable asset database at the hypergrid level.
  • We also have Kitely Market, selling into that population.
  • Now that I am also building in a web-world I am missing those amenities.
  • What DragNDrop for web-worlds means for inventories
