Mindblob has gone through the trouble of documenting our recent adventure together in refining the "levels of influence" idea. For the first time, I get someone else to do a visual for me—and I didn't even have to ask.
"The incredible thing is that Armano pointed this paradigm months ago on his "Sharing ideas in Flat vs. Round Worlds" scheme. This time, the process is proven through a real blogging experience. How surprising it is to discover that the subject was blogging itself. In french there is an expression that describes this : "une mise en abyme"... like Hamlet of Shakespeare, a play telling a story of a play revealing the plot of Hamlet, the play."
"He initiated an idea and shared his vision of a subject on his blog. His idea was immediately "criticised" (positively) by the readers of his blog. Their feedback fed David's original idea and so, the first visualisation evolved and grew, step by step, to reach higher levels of accuracy. David modified and re-shaped his idea progressively and changed his original visualisation to get a new one, closer to the reality shared by his "sphere of influence".
