Networked Community Showcase

Overview 1

The Doug Engelbart Institute is delighted to showcase these networked communities which are practicing most or all of the five accelerators for Bootstrapping Brilliance, or something very close to it. These are excellent case examples of networked improvement communities, or "NICs", a term coined by Doug Engelbart to emphasize the importance of collectively addressing significant challenges and opportunities. 1a

Our first community showcase, the New Media Consortium (NMC) case study, was developed by Executive Director Dr. Larry Johnson. Our use case at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), the brainchild of Dr. Gardner Campbell, was profiles in a recent feature article by the Internet Hall of Fame: Internet Pioneer's Greatest Contribution May Not Be Technological.
