What's your hunch?

A hunch is an inkling, a possibility, a sneaking suspicion about the future. It’s that thought you’ve been turning over in your head that just might mean you’re onto something.

We don’t often share our hunches, but when we do, amazing things can happen! 

At the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, we have a hunch your hunch can help build a Culture of Health. We hope you’ll share it.

I wonder if... the ability to see (make space for) two sides or multiple perspectives are a new super-power. In the 21st century we have seen a rise in the popularity of authoritarian leaders. Might equanimity define the next trend in leadership?

Sharon Roerty Sep 2022

I have a feeling that... COVID is going to blow up again as we kowtow to the demands of capitalism.

Sep 2022

I have a feeling that... Creating more spaces to slow down and restore humane connections can help us tap into that compassion wifi

Sofia Kavlin Sep 2022

I have a hunch that... decentralized decision making and authority can save the restaurant and hospitality sectors.

Kathleen Menegozzi Sep 2022

I have a hunch that... the young people that our society threw into the jungle of the internet without preparing them for--or even knowing ourselves--the dangers (or the beauty) therein are the ones who have the answers for us and they will say those answers reside IRL

JLS Sep 2022

I wonder if... What kinds of hunches would be submitted from a group comprised largely of a low-income community, and how that might align / differ from this group. I wonder what that might say about our society.

Stephen C Sep 2022

I have a feeling that... There will be a pendulum shift from dominant attention on digital presence back toward IRL physical presence

Mark Beam Sep 2022

I have a hunch that... the way forward looks less like a new version of Facebook and more like a new version of the Rotary Club.

Niran Babalola Sep 2022

I have a hunch that... Strangers need to learn how to respectfully listen to each other in person with an open mind & find common ground. I think we should invite small groups of people from rural, urban & suburban areas to attend a meal with a calling question & facilitated dialogue.

Pamela Sep 2022

I'm noticing that... The co-opting of social networks by companies to promote their credentials is promoting back slapping vs driving real change.

Marie Sep 2022

I'm noticing that... There is consistent talk about infusing our technology with ‘our values’. I’m curious as to how ‘we’ determine what constitutes ‘our values’. Who is included in this determination and how do ‘we’ participate or express these values?

Stephen C Sep 2022

I have a feeling that... There will be a pendulum swing from dominant attention to digital presence back toward IRL physical presence

Mark Beam Sep 2022

I'm noticing that... The people that should be represented in developing the protocols of new tech (eg web3) are always invited in too late…. How might we ensure we don’t shift to solutions too fast

Richard Kelly Sep 2022

I'm noticing that... The common keywords used here at Unfinished are value and democracy. What does that mean to everyone? What are the common values shared?

H Sep 2022

I'm noticing that... as I gain more experience and knowledge about work, housing, or other cooperatives, the more skeptical I am of technical solutions for governance. And the more I believe that what we need are cultural solutions.

Sep 2022

I'm noticing that... “phone-free” concerts provide a better experience and a bigger opportunity for concert-goers to engage. Real connection happens we disconnect from our mobile devices.

Jackie Sep 2022

I'm noticing that... We talk about “moving at the “speed of trust” and definitions of “belonging” are fundamental to that

Richard Kelly Sep 2022

I wonder if... there’s a way to encourage friendly, respectful, and open disagreement in contexts like this conference where there are so many points of view.

Han W Sep 2022

I wonder if... We keep using the terminology: ‘democratization’, that we may alienate technologists in our society with differing principles that will be critical to our common goal

Michael Sep 2022

I have a hunch that... there will be more places (like some high end restaurants) that will restrict (physically or technologically) access to devices.

Why share your hunch?

Our world needs more good ideas. Sharing our hunches may be one way to get there. 

While an idea can be acted on -- built, created, executed, stopped in its tracks -- a hunch more often needs to ferment. 

We created www.shareyourhunch.org so that anyone, anywhere can set their hunch free, giving it the freedom to grow stronger, to connect with other hunches, to spark new insights that can pave the way to a better future.
