Participation

Participate has been defined as “become a participant; be involved in) “enter a race”; “enter an agreement”; “enter a drug treatment program”; “enter negotiations””

Participation Age refers to the current period of time in which there is an explosion in the ability of individuals to participate in, be involved in, an array of activities that were previously very difficult or impossible for them to undertake.

In this blog, we will examine those activities, the digital technologies that are enabling new forms of participation, and the human wants & needs that drive us to want to participate.

Just by creating this blog, I have decided to participate in an activity that was previously very difficult for most individuals.

I have chosen to use the phrase Dawn of the Participation Age to convey my belief that we are just now entering this new age. We are witnessing the beginning, the dawn.
