Dealing with Internet fragmentation: The power of storytelling for brands

Dealing with Internet fragmentation: The power of storytelling for brands | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

2012 Global Players takes a look back at how corporate websites have evolved over the past year, to uncover why today it’s imperative for businesses to invest more time, imagination and resources in creating a corporate narrative.

 

Now here's an interesting article! The material that peeked my interest the most dealt with how the Internet creates fragmented stories which leads to businesses losing control over their narrative.

 

But then the article goes on to suggest that the typical ways companies create their websites does not work anymore in this fragmented environment.

 

Then the authors offer a link to a free downloadable study that show what companies can do to combat this fragmentation, develop and share their narrative, and succeed in today's Internet world -- with examples!

 

I checked out the study and it looks really good. I think as I study it I'll get lots of ideas for re-tooling the website which is going under another iteration of improvements.

 

I bet you will learn a lot too!

Prisoner’s Dilemma and the Evolution of Inequality – Does Unfairness Triumph After All? | Neuroanthropology

Human sociality is a complex adaptive system so I am skeptical that anybody will ever discover a formula; however, game theory combined with evolutionary theory is a powerful probe into cooperation -- how it originated and evolved and how it is maintained and blocked. -- Howard

 

"A new paper, Iterated Prisoner’s Dilemma contains strategies that dominate any evolutionary opponent (pdf), has just been published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Written by William Press and Freeman Dyson, it represents a substantial breakthrough in strategies that work in the Prisoner’s Dilemma game.

The key point? There does exist a strategy where a player can “enforce a unilateral claim to an unfair share of rewards.”

The implications of this paper are fascinating. For biological evolution, it opens up new thinking about reproductive strategies and life history theory, as well as the direct impact on ideas about the evolution of cooperation.

For cultural evolution, it seems to provide some powerful insights into the evolution of inequality in human society. As the agriculture revolution and population growth led to the ability to monopolize social resources and create differential wealth, what happened with social class? Did human cooperation turn from fairness to enforcing the sort of unfair game that Press and Dyson outline?"

Call for papers - The #eCollab Blog Carnival: The Stupid Company or the Myth of Collective Intelligence? | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
In theory, everyone is for the learning organization or the mobilization of collective intelligence.
How could you be against it? Would that make you in favour of the "stupid organization"?


Yet few organizations have developed a model for a sustainable learning organization.
So, is collective intelligence a myth? What are the reasons for successive failures at attempts to implement the learning organization? How can this be fixed?

"This web site supports the use of cell phones in the classroom by providing a controlled, secure environment for users. Students join teacher-created “cells” where phone numbers are kept private. Teachers can moderate all comments to make sure they are on-topic and appropriate for the group.

Learnlets » Piecing together collaboration and cooperation by working smarter

In an insightful piece, Harold Jarche puts together how collaboration and cooperation are needed to make organizations work ‘smarter’, integrating workgroups with the broader social network by using communities of practice as the intermediary. This makes a lot of sense to me, and I was inspired to take a look at the practices within those categories. (Jay Cross has explored different facets of the implications of this way of thinking and talks about how we are building on this.)

Peer Production and Co-Production: A New Approach to Solving Common Problems Together

Peer Production and Co-Production: A New Approach to Solving Common Problems Together | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
KF: An interesting book available under a reasonably new “copyfarleft” licensing arrangement. The book provides some useful insights into openness and peer/collaborative production strategies. It brings to mind the Cachalot book from Duke University where expertise is crowd-sourced, peer review is managed and distribution is open-source. These new models of content creation and distribution are set to challenge the established (dis)order of publishing and distribution.

Co-operation vs. Competition (vs. Collaboration)

Co-operation vs. Competition (vs. Collaboration) | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

By Will Richardson

 

"...we need a different lens on a national level these days. At a moment where so much knowledge is at our fingertips, and when we’re facing so many seemingly insurmountable problems, we need to spend more of our time figuring out how to work together instead of work against each other. And this is especially true in education.

 

"I think it’s interesting that Sahlberg eschews the word collaboration here. And I’ve been persuaded by Stephen Downes and Harold Jarche and others that really, we need to talk less about collaborating in networks and focus instead on cooperation. The difference is not subtle."

Evolution and Our Inner Conflict

Evolution and Our Inner Conflict | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

The evolutionary roots of human cooperative behavior remain contested, but gradually empirical and theoretical evidence are building a case for how we became super-cooperators -- Howard

 

"Are human beings intrinsically good but corruptible by the forces of evil, or the reverse, innately sinful yet redeemable by the forces of good? Are we built to pledge our lives to a group, even to the risk of death, or the opposite, built to place ourselves and our families above all else? Scientific evidence, a good part of it accumulated during the past 20 years, suggests that we are all of these things simultaneously. Each of us is inherently complicated. We are all genetic chimeras, at once saints and sinners — not because humanity has failed to reach some foreordained religious or ideological ideal — but because of the way our species originated across millions of years of biological evolution."
