Radish Collective Intelligence, or simply Radish was formed in 2014 by Jamen Shively and his associates, in response to many factors and circumstances, not the least of which is the growing reality of the entire set of the world’s mega-problems, each of which is a wicked problem in its own right.
The home page of ICCI, ICCIban.org, tells parts of the big picture story quite well: All of us involved in Radish are also involved in ICCI. It is worth going into the relationship between Radish and ICCI in some detail, but the short of it is this: ICCI is essentially that “ivory tower” wherein we can explore and develop many different kinds of solutions and meta-solutions to the world’s problems, including but not limited to variations on CI such as radical collective intelligence, or RCI. Since Radish is all about RCI, we thought it important to have a separate space, not beholden to RCI, but rather free to explore all manner of solutions, technologies, paradigms, real world implementations, etc., etc., pertaining to CI, and that is ICCI. ICCI actually goes a bit further, as stated on the home page of ICCI: “Is there a better solution (or meta-solution) to the world’s problems than developing and applying collective intelligence, to its fullest potential, to the solution of the entire set of all the world’s problems as a whole? If so, please tell us, so that we can provide you the space to share such solutions (& meta-solutions) herein. All such proposed solutions will be posted on ICCI.”
To see “Radish in action”, and thus get a much richer feel for who we are and how we work, I highly recommend the page Rooting down deep on Radical Collective Intelligence, including the two videos at the top of the page. There are several videos on this page, and they help reveal the culture of Radish, and some of the people involved.
The Hungerless Games video is a great 5 minute video which, while focused on setting the table for the Hungerless Games strategy and challenge to be played out, also provides a great introduction to our core philosophy at Radish.
