Earl C. Joseph, Sr: Longtime Technology Enthusiast

Remotely guides ... The Future of Minnesota Futurists


When asked at at 2001 MnIPS Dinner Meeting which FutureThought legacy (of which) he was proudest,

Earl quipped: "The number of PhD's I've coached who became (highly effective) mentors and tutors!"


>>I think Earl would be happy to be described as an “enthusiast”.

Technologists confer respect with “professional”, “expert”, “guru”, “wizard”, etc., all of which describe knowledge, not emotion.


All of those applied to Earl, but I don’t think they capture his essence.

All new technology seemed to be an exciting opportunity to Earl. Every time I talked to him, he was jazzed about something.

That was part of what made him fun (and challenging) to listen to as a futurist.


But his optimism was also an invitation because he had faith in our collective ability and determination to solve the social, physical, and conceptual problems that get in the way of technology making the world better.<<

During WFS-2007 Conference pre-planning (2002-2005)

both Earl Joseph and Alan Jaisle CHAMPIONED more attention to the INTERdependence of public health and water quality!  What follows are some Mutually-Beneficial Results (MBR) from our co-creating a sharable (Open Source) Enviro-Education Futures Advanced Distributed Learning network (ADLnet) that HONORS these "Fifth Freedom" hidden hometown heroes.

Sep-2003 Ashland (WI) encounters with Bruce Lindgren (biologist) & an Eco-History GPSurvey of Michigan Island became NextStep benchmarks!
While championing MnFuturists at TIES-20003, I became AWARE of emerging influence of K-12 Blogs guided by ESSDACK via Kan-Ed Network.
I was a BIOneering Eco-Futurist during a 2004 Four State Leadership Summit at Arbor Day Farm's Lied Conference Center in Nebraska City.


So, I became a Prairie Passage BIO-neer by moving to Monticello Township Kansas where I began prototyping Kanza Territory Wikinomics.

Thinklets (GDSS Stuff of Thinklets)

is a keyword coined by Dr. Robert O. Briggs with GroupSystems, Inc. in an award-winning paper submitted to the Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS) during January, 2001. Thinklets are the repeatable peopleware protocols that help facilitate virtual team tactics with "EayWinWin" Groupware 


Thinklets support anonymous voting to negotiate workable compromises (ALL-WinWin) among collaborating organizations with diverse priorities. Unisys human factors experiments with interdisciplinary virtual team tactics protocols demonstrated anonymous voting was a critical success factor.


A thinkLet's social capital value proposition may be assessed by its distributed application as either an Actionable Distilled Insight or Reusable Learning Object.

Keyword consistency remains pivotal for piloting new applications for Knowledge Management/Social Engineering
