I’m Johnnie Moore, and I help people work better together

A few years back I contributed a chapter to the More Space project. I had a look at it again recently and thought it still stood up pretty well.

Here’s the pdf: Simple Ideas Lightly Held. (The title is a nod towards David Weinberger’s elegant theme of small pieces loosely joined.) In part, it’s an exploration of how to deal with the challenge of complexity without falling into the trap of being simplistic or complicated. Enjoy!
