What is Your Deepest Value? And Your Investigatory Question?
From 1998 to 2010, I led Minciu Sodas, an online laboratory for serving and organizing independent thinkers around the world. We developed a culture of working openly, in the Public Domain, to help each other with our projects. The economics of Minciu Sodas is described in our paper, "An Economy for Giving Everything Away", which was an inspiration for the BarCamp unconference movement.
I distilled the "pattern language" for our culture into 12 questions which encouraged our personal growth and helped us support each other:
In particular, I collected 600 deepest values and 350 investigatory questions from participants. They were all wonderfully different. I organized 20 working groups based on our leaders' deepest values. They led by working on their questions. Our integrity united us to organize the Pyramid of Peace to avert genocide in Kenya in 2008. See "The Truth": http://www.ms.lt/sodas/Book/TheTruth
