The Future Proof Enterprise | Radical Paradigm Shifts (in technology and economy) | Scoop.it

It often happens to me to discuss on the choices to make (eg opensourcing core platforms) regarding the protection of competitive advantage.

I wrote this post on shareable: "The Future Proof Enterprise", which basically tries to make a reflection on the death of competitive advantage as a credible strategy for building sustainable, strong and significant enterprises these days and in the future.

Don’t Send Out Resumes.  MAKE a Resilient Job that Can Survive the Future. | Radical Paradigm Shifts (in technology and economy) | Scoop.it

"Despite a mountain of evidence to the contrary, some are convinced that good jobs, good salaries, and generous benefits are just around the corner, and that big government and big business will soon start hiring people to fill their bureaucracies again."

 

That's not the case.

Interviewing John Robb: how to build your DIY bright Future while the Big Reset is coming. | Radical Paradigm Shifts (in technology and economy) | Scoop.it

John Robb is a former American military, counter-terrorism expert and a writer, blogger and entrepreneur. John is considered by many “futurists’ futurist” and his theories talk about a future world fated to radical and somehow traumatic changes.

Among financial crash, cyberwarfare and guerrillas democratization, according to John we going to face a rising global instability and the best way to face it is to become resilient and learn how to create our new stability thanks to interactions with our very same communities, the ability to generate wealth locally, even inside your own homes.

Richard Hames on the Future Paradigms for Business

Richard Hames on the Future Paradigms for Business | Radical Paradigm Shifts (in technology and economy) | Scoop.it

"Business-as-usual is becoming less of an option by the day -

Resisting the changes will be futile in the long-term – although short-term expediency will still drive business motives for the time being, particularly in those larger corporations that find it difficult to change or are more concerned to maintain their immediate relevance rather than their long-term viability.

But the future of business and the business of the future holds out incredibly exciting promises, as we head into a world where the most urgent of our dilemmas can be solved, people and the planet are held to be as important as profits and growth, and where prosperity and well-being can be achieved for every member of the human family. That, I would argue, is the true destiny for the future of business."

Fueling Long Term G-Local Innovation | Radical Paradigm Shifts (in technology and economy) | Scoop.it

On Tuesday the 23rd of October, I had the honor and pleasure to speak on the subject of gLocality and innovation at the Udine’s DITEDI (District of Digital Technologies) born in a corner of Italy where the concentration of companies that are somehow involved in innovation and digital is awesome, one of the largest in Europe.

During my speech, I first introduced the correlation between the digitization of the economy, democratization, cooperation and resilience (in a context of access to resources that will become increasingly problematic in the future) and then moved on to the topic of company transformation.

What happens when entrepreneurial people value a *meaningful and sustainable lifestyle* over money?

My Question on Quora:

 

Now that we know that the system is broken, many of us (hackers, entrepreneurs, innovators, scientists, ...) are looking for an healthier, more sustainable, meaningful and fulfilling lifestyle instead of looking for big bucks. We are more and more willing to give up some money for freedom (work/life balance, flexibility, rurality, ...).

Don't transplant organs, 3D print them with living cells

What if you could 3D print new organs, rather than waiting for a transplant? It's being done by Dr. Anthony Atala, as he discusses in this TedTalk (available here http://www.ted.com/talks/anthony_atala_printing_a_human_kidney.html)

 

This team already engineered the first lab-grown organ to be implanted into a human — a bladder, with excellent success which they are repeating again and again.

MIT crowdsources and gamifies brain analysis | ExtremeTech | Radical Paradigm Shifts (in technology and economy) | Scoop.it

MIT wants to taskthousands of people with analyzing a 0.3-millimeter slice of mouse retinal tissue. Using a new site called Eyewire, MIT will ask users to track a neuron’s path by coloring in each axon (tendril). In the future, MIT will roll out another “game” which challenges users to find the synapses. The end result will be the connectome (a tome of connections) of a mouse’s retina.
