          • The Ten Laws of Love and Power: Theory and practice of social change - MaRS Global Leadership


            from MaRS Discovery District Added 598 1 0

            Despite their seemingly contradictory basis, power – being linked to the drive for self-realization, and love – linked to the drive to reunite the separated, the two are complementary. As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stated, “Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic.” But how do you align power and love? And how do you work to solve social challenges with groups of people that may bring to the table different quantities of power and love? Watch Adam Kahane speak about his book, Power and Love: A Theory and Practice of Social Change, in which he delves into the dual natures of power and love, exploring their subtle and intricate interplay.

              • Pop Culture Warriors: How Online Fan Communities Are Organizing to Save the World NCMR 2011


                from Northampton Community Television Added 40 1 0

                More than a million members of the Harry Potter Alliance, “an army of fans, activists, nerdfighters, teenagers, wizards and muggles,” are inspired by the values represented in the Harry Potter series to fight for social justice. Together, they’ve worked to make real change in the world. Last year, Los Angeles comedian and Reddit user Eddie Geller started a “reddit” (a new topic section on the site) devoted to Internet issues like Net Neutrality. Soon after, the new section lit up with other reddit users wanting to band together to fight for Net Neutrality. The Open Source Democracy Foundation – a grassroots organization, comprised mostly of Reddit users – was born. In recent years, dozens of online communities built on shared affinities (fan communities, gamers, etc.) have realized that they have the power to make change offline. The participants in this panel will discuss how online communities built around common interests like Harry Potter, online games, social bookmarking and general nerdiness have realized their strength, and focused their energies on charities and social and political causes. In addition, they will discuss why the open Internet and networked culture are uniquely suited to such group actions, and what lessons we have learned about how to organize future efforts.
