Anthropologist James Leach presents the Cross-Cultural Partnership as an example of a social “prototype” at “Prototyping Cultures: Social Experimentation, Do-It-Yourself Science and Beta-Knowledge.”
The Cross-Cultural Partnership, a legal template for encouraging ethical collaborations across cultural divides, was the brainchild of Leach, Wendy Seltzer, and othe members of the Connected Knowledge working group organized by Still Water. Leach’s talk at this two-day conference organised by the Spanish National Research Council in Madrid from 4-5 November 2010 is entitled “Prototypes of Engagement: Trust, Transaction, and Digital Partnership.”

“Think like a Network,” a remote presentation by Jon Ippolito at The Art of With conference, argued for expanding the participatory possibilities of arts institutions to an audience of art enthusiasts and professionals gathered at Cornerhouse in Manchester, UK, on 24 June 2009. “Think like a Network” argued that museums reinforce boundaries for rare experiences discovered by instruction, while networks pierce boundaries for ubiquitous experiences discovered by extraction.
The presentation went further by examining three paradigm-shifting tools to help break the old model and usher in the new: ThoughtMesh, which pierces interdisciplinary boundaries; Forging the Future’s Metaserver, which aims to make artifacts ubiquitous; and The Pool, which encourages discovery of creative projects by collaborative filtering.
