Micro conversations can be a counterpart to micro credit: what if we could encourage people to converse in little groups, to take charge of their lives, jointly, in little snatches, and spread these micro conversations to thousands and thousands? Here is where the pyramids and circles work, because there is an infinite set of permutations and each one is creative (not additive, not multiplicative, not geometric). It is not zero sum, where one gathers at the expense of another: all benefit. Not just individually but in our interwoven whole.
Just host a little conversation, do it deeply and with intent, but not a big deal…on the bus, at lunch, at the Art Gallery. Harvest something and get something started, or just inspire.
Micro everything…enough of that and macro starts to feel it.
