The CODE-X series catalogs a vast codex of source codes (aka “signs”) extracted from past audits.

Note that signs on their own, while sometimes interesting, only become truly revelatory and useful once they’re sorted into thematic complexes, and the complexes into codes, and the codes into a meaning map. We call this process “thick description”; the Code-X series is thin description.

KEEP IT CASUAL” NORM: Low-key convening — everybody is equal, nobody putting on airs. A relaxed, getting-away-from-it-all, vacation/concert vibe.


KEEP IT CASUAL” FORMS: T-shirts, jeans, super-casual clothes. Sitting on the floor, sitting cross-legged. Laughing, goofing, enjoying ourselves.

From a 2018 study of the INSPIRATIONAL space, within the larger framework of CONVENING. How best to communicate the notion that convening is about sparking a flame, making aha! moments possible?
