These are the anti-pattern cards originally developed by students in the Social Imagination and Civic Intelligence program at The Evergreen State College in the spring of 2014. Adam Selon developed the original concept and Justin Wagaman and others have been refining it as part of their work with the Civic Intelligence Research and Action Laboratory. These are still in work. Also the actual cards are higher resolution. Contact us for the higher resolution cards.

From the mission statement:
Small World News focuses on developing the capacity of citizens to engage with the international community in crisis areas and conflict zones.
Our most recent project, Alive in Libya, showcased the potential of citizen media when combined with affordable digital technologies and professional training. As an organization our primary focus has been to guide local citizens through the entire process, from learning to produce professional media to distributing via social media and leveraging relevant technologies to broaden the impact.
We believe our unique body of expertise with media development in conflict areas such as Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya makes us uniquely positioned to provide training to existing media professionals, human rights and civil society organizations, as well as independent citizens. In the past year, in addition to our own projects, Small World News has conducted training in Iraq, Afghanistan, India, Rwanda, Bahrain, Libya, and Uganda. Training subjects included: new media tools for civil society, SMS and mobile technology, training for journalists in new media and multimedia, training and advising in online security, training and deployment of Ushahidi.
As the means of communication have changed over the course of American history, so has the way public discourse has been carried out. National radio was a revolution that could put the voice of the president in every living room across the nation for fireside chats. With the rise of television, the firm jaw of Walter Cronkite could relay the facts as millions of viewers tuned in every night.
