I find it very interesting how I came up with Argument Mapping this morning after brainstorming a solution with everyday problem solving. What led me to an idea, led me to a brief paragraph, which led me to a system, which led me to a more simplistic system using technology which thereafter led me to a definition which then led me to a Google search which then led me to this website. All this from a home in the northwest of Mexico looking to solve simple around the corner arguments that falter over lack of critical thinking, mapping or whatever we would like to call it. Yes, it is no doubt amazing, even super exciting but we go so far down the line that we tend not to look back and help the masses because if we could help those at the top, they would surely help and affect better decisions for all those at the bottom. As intriguing, as awesome and as exciting as I am, happy and content that people are on the trail to explore, facilitate and create tools with useful purpose, I cannot but sigh and then wonder what happened to the original idea, the original ones that we thought to help. The every day Joe that speaks an everyday language, doesn’t feel like getting back on his everyday computer or dealing with another program that seems to be able to solve his problems and everyone elses as well. Will Rationale create something based on this logic for the masses? A game, a cartoon, a script writing ecard that replays everything for everyone to tinker with easily and usefully. Will all progress begin from the top on down or from the bottom on up? Will Mexico, other countries looking up and thinking the same yet in a practical world sense be the ones leading the world with simple paper and scissor drawing solutions that our kids can learn before using a mouse? Will these mega corporations that create these programs finance the little micro big thinkers to power grassroots movement enabling their products to go further? Who knows, thats what I wonder and that is what I ponder and discover as my little processor squiggles and scribbles away each day. Great stuff, lets change the world.
