"New advances in digital media offer unprecedented memory capacities, an omnipresent channel of communication, and ever-growing computational power. We must ask ourselves how we can exploit this medium in order to augment our own social cognitive processes for human development. Through a combination of a profound knowledge of humanities and social sciences, and an understanding of computer sciences, Pierre Lévy proposes a collaborative construction of a global hyper-cortex, coordinated by a computable metalanguage. By fully recognizing the symbolic and social nature of human cognition, we could transform our current, opaque, global brain into a reflexive collective intelligence."

"Using the mind to watch the mind, and ultimately to change how the mind works, is known in cognitive psychology as metacognition. Beneath the poetic cultural trappings of Buddhism, what intensive meditation offers to long-term practitioners is a kind of metacognitive hack of the human operating system (a metaphor that probably crossed Jobs’ mind at some point.) Sitting zazen offered Jobs a practical technique for upgrading the motherboard in his head."

# I have worked with him on global change projects. He has very interesting view points about the presence from the view point of the future, moving from anticipatory models beyond extrapolation towards the capacity to reframe assumptions underyling our concepts of society, economy, or change: Futures literacy.
