Ehfo: Bootstrapping Complexity

Ehfo: Bootstrapping Complexity | Collaborative Culture Emerging | Scoop.it

Based in Kevin Kelly's book, Out of Control, which is a summary of what we know about self-sustaining systems, both living ones such as a tropical wetland, or an artificial one, such as a computer simulation of our planet. The last chapter of the book, "The Nine Laws of God," is a distillation of the nine common principles that all life-like systems share, summarized here.

The Rise of Integral Society and the Web View of the World

The contour of this larger change is already easy to see. Cultural sea changes are marked by a shift in the underlying metaphor the society uses to explain "how the world works" and today our metaphor is migrating from "machine" to "web" (interconnectedness). The emerging web view is witnessed by everything from environmental awareness and holistic alternatives in health to the global economy and the World Wide Web. The reasons for this restructuring are also obvious. The crisis in education is but one of a growing list of threats to social well-being that includes environmental degradation, community disintegration, economic inequity (and instability) and democratic processes dominated by moneyed interests.

Evolutionary entrepreneurship – Engaging the Collective Will

Evolutionary entrepreneurship – Engaging the Collective Will | Collaborative Culture Emerging | Scoop.it
Here's an article I wrote for Kosmos Journal back in the autumn of 2008. It still seems topical.

This article gives a brief overview of what needs to happen if we— individually and collectively—are to wisely and effectively engage in shaping the future of our planet and our species. The community of evolutionary entrepreneurs has a rich toolkit of models, maps and approaches to work with, but they can be effective only if we deeply understand the habits of the living systems in which we use them. The guidelines set out below come from the distilled wisdom of the global community of ‘hosts of conversations that matter,’ as I understand them through the filters of my own experience as an evolutionary entrepreneur working inside the European Commission in Brussels.

Shareable: The Future Now: An Interview with David de Ugarte

Shareable: The Future Now: An Interview with David de Ugarte | Collaborative Culture Emerging | Scoop.it

Shareable publisher Neal Gorenflo, John Robb of Global Guerrillas, and P2P foundation's Michel Bauwens talk to David de Ugarte, one of the originators of the Spanish cyberpunk scene about his more recent work forming an multinational worker cooperative, Las Indias, that is a culmination of his community's dialog for the last decade. Las Indias is the manifestation of a unique socio-economic philosophy that synthesizes many strains of thinking and culture including cyberpunk, anarchism, and cooperatives - all with a Spanish twist . It's important because it points to a possible future for those who think outside of national boundaries and desire or need to take control of their own economic destiny. It's a possible future that takes the centuries old logic of cooperatives and remixes it for the urban-centered, global network society we live in today.

The Wicked Problem of Wicked Problems | Communities Collaborating Institute Online

The Wicked Problem of Wicked Problems | Communities Collaborating Institute Online | Collaborative Culture Emerging | Scoop.it

At issue is that wicked problems are made more so by having both complex and non-complex elements working together, requiring a level of strategy development that is far more sophisticated than many first thought. Even a review of the better management texts using complexity give short shrift to the relationship between the complex, the simple and the complicated working simultaneously in environments and how we plan for that. The Cynefin Framework provides a start, but just a start.

3 Lessons On The Wrong Ways To Use Social Media To Create Change

3 Lessons On The Wrong Ways To Use Social Media To Create Change | Collaborative Culture Emerging | Scoop.it
Being a movement builder in the modern age requires a facility with the best of what the Internet has to offer, but it also takes the wisdom to recognize the Internet’s limitations. People still crave in-person connection, visceral inspiration, the sense that they are a part of something so worthwhile that it gets even the most dedicated of online gurus out from behind their screens and taking action together.

This is where cultural entrepreneurship comes into play. How do you use online and offline strategies to change, not just policy or corporate practice, but hearts and minds?

Meta-Nature

Meta-Nature | Collaborative Culture Emerging | Scoop.it

The spike in CO2 causing global warming can be seen as the second atmospheric crisis, and peak oil as the third energy crisis, in the history of life on earth. Silicon photovoltaic's are like an octave of photosynthesis and thus a key indicator of the potential for a new life-support technology plateau, a climax technology that humanity may evolve, just as nature did several times before us. Our very recognition of this possibility may be one of a number of converging indicators that we are at the point of inflection on the S-curve leading to Meta-Nature.
