Building product, and talking to users. In the early stages of your startup, those are the two things you should focus on. In this lecture, Emmett Shear, Founder and CEO of Justin.tv and Twitch, covers the latter. What can you learn by talking to users that you can’t learn by looking at data? What questions should you ask? How can user interviews define or redefine your product goals?

To develop our comprehensivity, our interest in broadly and deeply understanding our worlds and its peoples, we actively consider the learning of other traditions and their ideas which may initially seem very strange to us.
This event will continue a previous exploration on change in our lives. We will quickly come to focus on the issue of how we create that-which-is-not-yet.
To help participants engage this alternative way of thinking about the changes in our lives, I prepared the following essay: https://www.cjfearnley.com/CfC/2021/04/how-to-create-that-which-is-not-yet/
Reading the essay will help participants grapple with this unusual way of thinking about how change occurs in our lives.
This idea builds on part of a previous event on "Rethinking Change and Evolution". However, there is nothing from that event that you need to understand to fully participate at this event. If you are interested in those preliminary connections, you can watch the 1h 5m video from the prior event at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vyr7x0hPFOY
Welcome to the series "Comprehensivist Wednesdays". Transdisciplinarity, Renaissance humanism, homo universalis, and Polymathy are some of the ways of describing this approach which Buckminster Fulle…

John Boyd communicated his ideas through presentations given to US military leaders. His presentations radically transformed how US military fights—especially the Marines adopted his ideas with vigor. His presentations were the most popular presentations in US Naval Academy and Marine Core Base at Quantico. After the death of John Boyd, Marine Corp and US Navy asked his close associate of 20+ years Chuck Spinney to give the presentation in John Boyd’s stead. "Evolutionary Epistemology: A Personal View of John Boyd’s Destruction and Creation… and its centrality to the OODA Loop" has been presented by Chuck Spinney at US Naval Academy and at the Marine Corp Base in Quantico dozens of times since 1991.
WE ARE GREATLY HONORED TO HAVE CHUCK SPINNEY HIMSELF GIVING THE SAME INTERACTIVE PRESENTATION TO US LIVE IN ITS ORIGINAL FORM.

We will be discussing John Boyd’s short paper on "Destruction & Creation" which lays out his method of thinking.
Please read it here to prepare for this Meetup: https://fasttransients.files.wordpress.com/2010/03/destruction_and_creation1.pdf
Please watch our Meetup giving overview of John Boyd’s Ideas here: https://youtu.be/6hDhznBtN24
In this seminal paper, John Boyd argues that to increase our capacity for independent action we need to continuously engage in a relentless process of destruction and creation of conceptual structures in order to shape and adapt to a fast changing world around us. We are subject to Godel’s incompleteness theorem, Heisenberg’s Uncertainty principle and Entropy. We need to continually reorient by deductive, destructive analysis pulling apart our old conceptual structures, and recreating them through creative inductive synthesis. Such dynamic orientation enables us to decide and act effectively while being responsive to changing context.
Format: 1) Presentation by Shrikant 2) Breakout rooms 3) Go around with takeaways. 4) General discussion

Interview with Chet Richard on Life and work of John Boyd, OODA Loop, and its applications to life.
Chet Richards was a close associate of the late US Air Force Colonel John Boyd—who transformed military strategy using his cone]Capt of the OODA Loop. Chet was there as the concept of the OODA Loop was being developed and constructed the first graphics of the OODA Loop from sketches Boyd drew. Chet is the author of the widely read business book “Certain to Win” which was the first book to describe Boyd’s strategy in terms familiar to business leaders and show how the OODA Loop and associated Boyd concepts apply to today’s business problems.
