Beginning with my next live broadcast I will add Google+ hangouts to the broadcast. I have been experimenting with the idea, and will launch it on my next live broadcast. The idea is to provide video and another way to interact with my audience. The show will broadcast on youtube and allow the listener to respond immediately as well as participate in my experiment with emergence. The listener will be able to send direct messages as well as share their thoughts on the shows notepad. The idea is to have people share insights disappointments, ideas, discussion points and etc. with the entire audience. Everyone that checks into the hangout will be able to use the notepad and leave their mark on the show.
The one negative is that i will have to mute myself from the discussion. I will be able to hear (maybe), but I will not be able to speak while the show is running. Because I will be broadcasting over Youtube there is no limit to how many people can tune in and participate, but to get the full experience they will have to run Google+ hangout and spreaker until I get word on how to integrate both apps.
This move will allow the Journey to build an audience that drives the show and the discussion, and also brings the host and guest into the home of the listeners, so that the show is less like a talk show and more like a community ( +Gye-Nyame Journey ), or better yet a moving, dynamic, and living organism. Better yet the experience will be like no other show on the planet. On my blog I have often talked about the idea of emergence, and with this format as the audience grows so will the surprises that will be launched into the discussion.
This will be another challenge for me because I will have to respond to multiple ideas coming at me from all directions, which is how I like it. So come on out and join me as I move out in to my social experiment. I can only wonder about what will come from this.
Peace and 1hunidyears

Here is a video that we found searching the public domain. I will be posting many more videos like this and using them in the Warrior training to demonstrate the power of symbolism and media.

I will also doing some personal shows on the series of cartoons and movies that I will be posting. The Idea is to hold discussion about these old videos, their effects, and how they may be playing a factor in our Areas today.
Great Ujima: It is time to discuss Ujima from the standpoint of Kujichagulia, and today I want to look at the responsibility part of this principle. We Know (at least those who have been listening) that Ujima in Gye-Nyame is Umoja in action. Ujima works because responsibility is exercised, but let's take this day to look into the idea of responsibility. Responsibility is the ability to be in control of our actions and words, it is a state of being accountable for one's actions and words. There is a deep level of self-respect and self-love that comes with responsibility. A responsible person knows who they are, they know who they are, they know where they are going, they know what they want, they know why they want it, and they know how to get it...in other words responsibility gives us power. Many of us do not want to take responsibility, but the reality is that we are responsible for our actions and non-actions. The lack of responsibility breeds anger, frustration, confusion,
