How might we learn more effectively from each other?
How might we develop the habit of sharing our learnings with each other more frequently?
How might we share what we’re learning in a useful and light way?
If we share short videos with each other five days a week for two weeks, then we will find sharing with each other easier and more compelling.
Each person will make a video on WhatsApp of their learnings once a week.
Eugene will set up an automated email reminder to you on the day you are supposed to share the video.
Between April 7 - May 7, how many times do people in E3 spontaneously share learnings with each other, outside of another facilitated gathering?
Minimum: At least one person chooses to share a thought (without prompting) with the group on what they’re learning
Target: At least two people choose to share a thought (without prompting) with the group on what they’re learning
Epic: Everyone chooses to share a thought (without prompting) with the group on what they’re learning
Technically, we hit minimum success. However:
We ran into technical roadblocks that made it hard
The email notifications helped some of us
Even if we hadn't, once a week for two weeks isn't long enough to establish a habit
Make sure everyone has resolved their technical problems. (Already resolved for 2/3 people.)
Instead of repeating the Kardashians experiment, Eugene wants to do a "The Martian" experiment (which someone had proposed as the original name for this experiment), where he does a video wrap-up of what he's thinking about once a day for five days. Wants to see if others are inspired to do the same (or at least to share their thinking) without pre-committing to an experiment.
We have not yet tested a version of this experiment where we broadcast videos publicly (or at least with a larger audience). Something to think about for a future iteration.
