En el 2006 al estar juntas en la clase de Administración de Servicios de la Información (CINF 6400) en la Escuela Graduada de Ciencias y Tecnologías de la Información, de la Universidad de Puerto Rico, y exponernos a La quinta disciplina (1990), y La quinta disciplina en la práctica (1999), de Peter Senge, estudioso del Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) y director del Centro de Aprendizaje Organizacional del MIT, tuvimos la oportunidad de conocer el concepto y la filiosofía del Ubuntu. Senge es precisamente uno de los exponentes del concepto de las comunidades que aprenden y los equipos de trabajo de alto rendimiento.

El pasado sábado, en un encuentro especial para la elaboración del portafolio profesionaldel estudiante egctiano, nos dio mucho gusto rememorar el tiempo en que conocimos la ética o ideología y los valores, que subyacen en la filosofía Ubuntu. Nos sentimos muy complacidas al compartir experiencias y observar que ya hemos integrado la filosofía con mucha más vehemencia en nuestro diario vivir. Compartimos algunas referencias para su información y marcos de referencia.

Ubuntu (ideology) Ubuntu, pronounced /ùbúntú/ (oo-BOON-too), is a sub-Saharan African ethic or ideology focusing on people's allegiances and relations with each other. The word has its origin in the Bantu languages of Southern Africa. Ubuntu is seen as a traditional African concept. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubuntu_(ideology)

Infed. Peter Senge and the learning organization. Peter Senge's vision of a learning organization as a group of people who are continually enhancing their capabilities to create what they want to create has been deeply influential. We discuss the five disciplines he sees as central to learning organizations and some issues and questions concerning the theory and practice of learning organizations. http://www.infed.org/thinkers/senge.htm

Ubuntu Linux . Ubuntu is a complete Linux-based operating system , freely available with both community and professional support. It is developed by a large community and we invite you to participate too!

The Ubuntu community is built on the ideas enshrined in the Ubuntu Philosophy: that software should be available free of charge, that software tools should be usable by people in their local language and despite any disabilities, and that people should have the freedom to customise and alter their software in whatever way they see fit.

These freedoms make Ubuntu fundamentally different from traditional proprietary software: not only are the tools you need available free of charge, you have the right to modify your software until it works the way you want it to. http://www.ubuntu.com

Sawu bona, dear ACURIL Executive Council Members:

Sixteen years ago, prior to my trip to Suriname, I was introduced through Peter Senge's The fifth discipline (english version 1990), to the Ubuntu philosophy: the humanity that shares everything; the work of one with another, recognizing our individualities, but strategically together to reorient our paths in good faith, sharing our development, visualizing the highest value, and truly be. Ubuntu is value, beauty, life, love, respect for each human being.

In his book, Senge tells us that in the Natal Tribes in South Africa, the common greeting, equivalent to our 'hello ' is the expression of Sawu bona. Literally it means 'I see you'. Members of the tribe respond saying Sikkhona, 'I am here'. The existence of the community is determined from the recognition of each other. A person is as person because of other people. It is to recognize that one is, acknowledging that the others exist, inspite of the differences; but recognition of others is required if one is to be.

Between the six days past, from Wednesday to Monday, I crossed the Caribbean sea, twice. I crossed the Para River, twice. And I dipped into the Cola Creek, twice. I re-encountered myself again, and really understood the mission of my life. My aura and heart are restored, renovated and strengthened, with the ardent hope to continue practicing the Ubuntu as an integral part of my life in this Universe, and as long as Our Lord prescribes.

Who am I without you?
It is, as we discussed last night in the course of Administration of Information Services at the Graduate School of Information Sciences and Technologies of the University of Puerto Rico, an important framework, a challenge that will allow all of us who wish to develop and be part of a real Learning Community geared to humanize our relationships and to acceprt our interdependency, at various levels: personal, local, regional and global.

We are All ACURILEANS. Thank you to all and each one of you for being the way you are and for allowing me to be part.

Sikkhona,
Luisa Vigo-Cepeda
