I was recently interviewed by James Arnfinsen for his scandanavian podcast show Levevei, which translates as “way of life” or “profession” in english. The title of the episode is, “Creating change through informal learning communities.” Here’s a little description of the some of the stuff that we explored together, much of it being extremely geeky stuff related to the vision and organizational side of Buddhist Geeks.
In this fourth episode I speak with Vince Horn, co-founder of the popular podcast show Buddhist Geeks. He’s also a teacher in the Insight Meditation Tradition, in addition to being an explorer of what he calls Pragmatic Dharma. Besides talking about geeky Buddhist stuff, we delve into the idea of informal learning communities, and how–together with web-based technology–this type of endeavor can facilitate individual and collective learning and development.
