Up

REGROUPING, here at DK World HQ. It has been one full month of looking through old projects, discovering connections between them, and having that very intriguing moment of insight when you just feel like someone turned the lights on. I didn’t do the things you would imagine that you should do when going through this […]

Writing and hiding and autocorrecting in S P A C E

TURNING ATTENTION BACK TO THE CLOUD, in recent days. The ‘N’ in Hanoi was too, too fun. I want to take a nice long break from making more events, outside of the ‘Secret Event’ series here in Phnom Penh, that is. (More on our fb. I’m sure there are some links there now*.) What I […]

The basics (and a compass)

REALIGNING WITH THE TEAM, here at DK World Headquarters in Phnom Penh. In Cambodia, where there is a slight breeze and the soft sound of humming constructions and light traffic. Traffic… that’s a given in PP, sure, so I’m not going to complain, especially with the influx of cars. Very popular. Cars. But this week, […]

The things to come

  ***   WAKING UP IN A NEW PLACE, not the train and not the bus and not the old house(s). Back in Phnom Penh, but seeing it from new angles. Ahead? It’ll be a different adventure, now, from this point forward. Different people to meet, different scenery to note. I think even new foods […]

Virtual reception :: The Art of Not Knowing

A NEW COLLECTION. After the conversations that came of a 2012 lecture, ‘There’s Not That Much Time Left,’ Design Kompany created online ‘rooms’ for talking together with people we didn’t know about how to leave a legacy you can feel great about. By designing the life you want. Working backwards from the picture of ‘the […]

Writing and eating

TWO THINGS today, on the agenda. Going through the conversations, going through the highlights of posts, of sharings to date, of learnings-as-we-went, and the reflections from ‘N’ in Phnom Penh, Bangkok, London, and the ones in progress in Copenhagen and Hanoi. Today I will focus on getting things into a place where they are share-able […]

Save the date, almost

SOME OF THE PEOPLE reading this page today will recognize what this means. The poll. Where the people who say ‘yes’ to an ‘N’ event work together to mutually agree on a date. At the time of this writing, we have 6 people ‘in’ for the same date for ‘N’ Hanoi. WHICH SIX, and which […]

Raining in Hanoi

RAIN. In Hanoi. Rainy morning. Construction is still on next door, for some reason. Oh, wait. I think it stopped. Oh… no, no. I’m wrong. Well, anyway. Maybe it’s an indoor kind of renovation. Maybe they are on a deadline. Perhaps its just irrelevant about this being a Saturday, for them. Maybe, maybe. Speculations. Meantime […]

Registration page for ‘N’ Hanoi: NARRATIVE

TODAY IS THE DAY. Registration page is up for ‘N’ Hanoi. Related: What is ‘N?’ > Related: Pushing Back on the Culture of Maybe > For ‘N’ in Hanoi, our theme is NARRATIVE. ‘What are the stories we tell to the world? What are the ones we tell to ourselves?’ ‘N’ is an invite-only event […]

Hello internet

WRITING TODAY. Lots. On email. Pencil-paper. In virtual blogs. At protected pages. Posting. Writing. Conversing. There are texts. There are sometimes phone calls. Things are starting to zoom into focus. Quickly, seamlessly. Not because of anything but one thing: committing to a thing. One thing. A focus. For me, this time, this next 6 months, […]

Metaphilosophy and metaphysics, with clouds

[Update: I read once that if you want to be great at SEO, you should update your posts. Let’s see if that really is true. Anyway, Rooftop Philosophy in Phnom Penh, a salon, is TOMORROW. That would be THURSDAY. Yesterday and today our team has been inviting people we have met since the last one. […]

A new plateau

LEGACIES ARE MADE AND BUILT based on the learnings we can articulate clearly, and share. Dialogue makes us gather our ideas and respond to those of others, too. Perspectives can shift and whole rooms of internal awareness can open, if we allow ourselves room to reflect. It’s why I am always taking pictures like this, […]

Tonight is ‘N’ London: NOTEWORTHINESS

MANY THANKS TO THE DOZENS of people in our online and real-life community, S. P. A. C. E., for helping DK connect with the 16 ‘new and different others’ we are meeting for the first time in one moment tonight. TONIGHT IS ‘N’. Here, in London. A year in the making, this one. We are […]
