Baseline

They are chaos

No comfort

Background

It's hard to do a mosh pit by yourself

Tell stories

It was 1992 in London

I'm not British

Saw Fugazi in New York

Did Moshin'

Warm up

invite to mosh

How many people are smart?

Go shake hands

Sit with new friends

You are now smarter

I don't stand still alot

standing makes me uncomfortable

invested energy in making myself comfy

not towards invigorating the performance

make sure people are comfortable

Crowdsurfing is impossible by itself

hand on shoulder == help me up brother

I became fully engaged

But I didn't feel confident

Don't be the jerk who jumps on top of someone

We must give people the context so they can contribute

We must include people

A small interdisciplinary group

boss was self deprencial

Experience is important

expertise provides context

narrow vision

The clash includes the audience in the show

Tear down chairs

to stand on stage and play louder

and sloppier

doesn't improve the experience

Anticipation

bring the stuff you're going to need

bring stuff

Be prepared for what may happen

imagine what could happen

Fishbone climbed a tree

Experiment with things

evaluate what happened.

Do we need to do something different?

if you know who it affects you can make good changes

Principles

pogo turns into bumping into people turn into beating people up

We have organizational principles

and personal principles

accountability

for things we screw up

and do right

Nurturing

don't just not hurt someone

pick them up

Notions are between unknowns and ideas

nurture them

share them

Sharing

Do it in a constructive way

self determination

Awareness

understand how people are likely to behave

make it possible for people to contribute in a positive way

Engagement

Can be positive

can have drawbacks

Environment

What is it people want in this environment

What are their emotions?

Emotions

Actions

Observe actions instead of assuming they'll do what we expect

New node

Respect

Boundaries

values

security folks don't want mosh pits

go out to the concourse to do the mosh pit there

Think about everyones values, not just yours

ideas

the currency of collaboration

it don't matter how many ideas you have if you don't spend it

goals

What does everyone want?

go back to your sheet of paper and write the different peoples goals

Humility

don't let what you want to achieve

get in the way of what your group can achieve

momentum

correction

floor justice. Let people fall

it may be innappropriate to do floor justice

align peoples personalities with ideas that are worth pursuing

collectivisim

i'm a communist ;)

New node

Irreverence

Indie rock pop songs

indignation

there is no kind of music,

it's about the people and the energy

interpretation

the way you say these guys are ok

can be interpreted as insulting

defy artificial constraints

inspiration

innovation

break down walls that say you can't do that.

negation: think about how to make something really really awful

think about irreverent responses

Contact

not unique to moshing

dance is contact

intent

judge peoples intent when they take actions

if you get emotional, put the keyboard down

energy

sometimes the grammas really rock it

activity

What we are doing must be positive and safe

but the actiity must give it life

entropy

you can tell who the professional in the mosh pit is

you hit everyone in the room as hard as they wanted to be hit

gogamestorming!

establish boundaries to know the field of play

moshing has boundaries

vision

tangible

I want a picture can I borrow your camera?

put everyone on stage

memorable

extensible

meaningful

we want to create meaningful innovation that can't happen in any other way

encore

write one of the concepts on a piece of paper
