Newcomers to the site may not have (yet) found their way to the Glory of Failure group on Ning.
Those who have been here a while may not have fully appreciated how the Glory of Failure campaign can support your work and help you to make a difference in whatever work you are doing.
THE GLORY OF FAILURE CAMPAIGN IS TRULY TRANSDISCIPLINARY!!!
Have a look at our group, see the sorts of discussion going on and think about what you can gain and what you can give. It doesn't cost you anything to join and you'll find, as one of the most active groups on the Ning Fellowship Council, it is a great place to get started building networks that you can use to advance your own work: as well as being extremely worthwhile in itself.
You'll also be able to make 'instant impact'. I have posted a number of items that show you what to do if you have no time, some time or lots and lots of time and can really make a difference to our (yours and the established groups) efforts. We'd really like to see you there.
From publishing books through organising colloquia and symposia, surveys and failure labs, to pub quizzes and monthly meetings and webchats, the Glory of Failure group is where the science of failure meets its art.
We are now looking at five main themes, failure in relation to:
Individual Life Events (ILE)
Culture and Society
Remember, if you don't try, you won't fail but you won't succeed either...
Add me as a friend and don't hesitate to contact me if you want to find out more or just have a chat about things. And you'll see we regularly update the Ning events pages so you can meet 1:1 or with a group of like-minded people (diverse as we are in all other respects!) and see what you can do to contribute to changing society's attitude to, and removing the taboo around, failure.
