Welcome to Think IF… a blog site I’ll be using to support my work as a Fellow of “IF”–the Interactivity Foundation. The Foundation is a non-partisan non-profit that is dedicated to helping citizens explore and develop more possibilities for our society to approach emerging complex topics of social and political concern. We focus on exploring divergent possibilities, helping people to think about “what if …?” We help people to think more interactively, both in terms of thinking about the interactions of different aspects of complex topics and also in terms of interacting collaboratively with each other. You can find out more about this blog and what the Interactivity Foundation is all about in the About section of this blog and at IF’s official website.
The primary impetus for starting this blog now is to support my upcoming Discussion Project on Shaping our Towns and Cities: Public Policy and the Future of Where and How We Live. There’s an introductory description of the project under the “Shaping Towns & Cities” menu bar button above. I’ll be posting follow-up material about this project and about what it takes to be a successful participant. If you think you might be interested, please read through the introductory material and send me an email (prudhomme [AT] interactivityfoundation [DOT] org) or leave a comment. Oh, and if you know someone who might be interested in taking part, please share this information with them and encourage them to get in touch with me.
