Mark Tomizawa
We worked together  •  Co-founder, NowCivic and R&D Game Design, Playful Mindful: HumanSmart On Demand. Massachusetts Institute of Technology grad.
To be in the systems thinking business is to live the curse of interesting times with something everyone needs and nobody wants to pursue at ... the highest level. Quick low hanging fruit is what satisfies the instant Q over Quarter gratification monster that has consumed our economy. To fight for quality and humans with free time to pursue unapproved approaches used to be standard: We begged for forgiveness and not permission. Now it's inverted. Adds to the mess of over-lawyered rule-based precedent in which the legal culture is what it is: one that hates to go back and revisit. Not for nothing that's the function of the Supreme Court. With little to no freedom for judges to be wholly human and apply common sense, they run out of wiggle room and then we the people resent the constraint that was meant to stop idiocy and thus also stops non-conformists (innovators, inventors, free thinkers with clear focus). So we focus on controlling and prescribing ways and means that have a history of working instead of focusing on outcomes that are contextually true to the original intent and also contextually self similar in the new world with all the new ways of getting things done that the founders could not possibly have foreseen. So hurray for Nigel. Any prototyper with systems discipline AND access to top minds has my blessing. Herding alpha lions is much harder than herding cats. I can and have launched stuff overseas including one brand that spanned the cultures and landmasses and TV/media sensibilities from India to Australia, all of it from beginning to end in just 12 weeks, including the brand strategy umbrella, brand widgets for local templating, B2B, B2C, C2C social stuff. This was when the Internet was just good enough to avoid customs. I went over, got taken to places of meaning, read the people and energy and stuff they made and how they organized it themselves in the markets, and how they built their buildings, and what cultural "magic" held them together. Boston, in contrast to Hong Kong, Singapore, NYC, Miami, Philly, Hollywood, Seattle, Hawaii and Chicago (plus midwest), Boston is orders of magnitude harder. All the elites come here to be an elite specialist. Not much room for Renaissancing and well roundedness festivals. And when folks here do it, it is controlled to minimize stress because it is a brutal hierarchical Puritan work ethic (as opposed to Philly's Quaker humble friendly community work ethic). And the city is a tiny island surrounded by wealthy suburbs that stayed independent and resistence minded. Genetically and epigenetically, folks would rather passively fight and flee than submit to learning. Training, yes. Learning, no. They save the intellectual for their private bar stool or game studio or maker space...but hardly ever do the twain meet. So god bless you Nigel: You are trying to pull us back together. Vital dirty work that must be done with maximum of hospitality and grace and streamlining and a minimum of "work". It's a cognitive social magic act.
