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.

RALLY AROUND” NORM: In order to make an impact, we must band together and gird our loins for battle.

March for Science

RALLY AROUND” FORMS: Close-knit ranks of idealistic, determined people. Similar to Bonding code but more purposeful, less casual. Rousing tonality. “This is a battle, my friends.” Moving women in tech forward. Together.” “Fight the good fight.”

From a 2018 study of the IMPACT space, within the larger framework of CONVENING. How best to communicate the notion that convening is about mustering support, influencing change, making a difference?
