Groups come alive and thrive when people relate to the proximity of their shared situation. The Shared Situation Guide helps groups do that in mobile, networked ways. This may assist any group with a shared situation, from friends and associates, to neighborhoods and communities, and even to regions and beyond.

This site is an outgrowth of the ProxThink Shared Situation Guide, Workshops and Public Collaborations. Here’s a quick video. Watching it full screen helps with reading the text.

This site has links to begin using the guide, provides starter sets for some common situations, points to workshops for learning the guide, and helps people find and collaborate with others using the guide for shared situations.

We set up the site here since the features of WordPress can help people get more out of the guide, in at least the following two ways:

  1. People can find, share and comment on guide starter sets for some common situations. This can help people get more out of the guide sooner, by leveraging things others have learned and created for similar situations. And thanks to the Collaboration Deal (part of the ProxThink Terms of Use) it’s possible people who share starter sets they created may get proxri for their efforts.
  2. People can find, join and comment on shared situation collaborations (collabs). Some will be run by ProxThink and others will be groups running their own shared situation collabs. This may assist any group with a shared situation, from friends and associates, to neighborhoods and communities, and even to regions and beyond.

We’re just launching this site, so things will become more and more complete. Follow some of the progress here on the blog if you like! As mentioned, the guide grew out of the proximity thinking framework, so links here may take you to pages related to ProxThink or proxthink.com.

Thanks and feel free to contact us with questions or comments!
