Three Reasons to Watch Interest-Based Social Networks in 2013

Three Reasons to Watch Interest-Based Social Networks in 2013 | Content in Context | Scoop.it
Brands have some new marketing opportunities as interest-based networks grow and add more mobile features.
Jesse Soininen's insight:

Where Facebook organizes around one’s friends, or “social graph,” these new social media sites would organize around users’ interests, the “interest graph.” Interest based networks such as Pinterest, Quora,Mightybell, PandaWhale, Thumb and Fitocracy are just a few examples of companies we saw gain traction among consumers and investors in 2012.

Nature and sex redefined – we have never been binary
A recent article in Nature suggests that biologists ‘now think’ the idea of two sexes is inaccurate; in fact, says Vanessa Heggie, for decades biologists have been at the forefront of campaigns against this simplistic understanding of sex: http://www.theguardian.com/science/the-h-word/2015/feb/19/nature-sex-redefined-we-have-never-been-binary

How Organizations Evolved

How Organizations Evolved | Content in Context | Scoop.it

Jeff Bezos has the "two pizza rule," meaning that any team should be able to be fed by just two pizzas; if not, then the team is too large. We are seeing a big shift away from large structured centrally located teams to smaller more globally distributed teams which are held together by technology. As long as team members can access to the internet it doesn't matter where they are located.

I may sound like a broken record when I say this, but the future of work is absolutely about breaking down barriers between teams and geographies. Sales should be speaking with product development, marketing should be speaking with customer service and support and engineering should be speaking solution delivery teams. The traditional model saw only people in the same team or physical location share and collaborate; no more. The organization of the future is a connected organization where information, collaboration and communication happens without boundaries.

There's a reason why large organizations are stereotyped as being slow-moving, bureaucratic, old-fashioned and simply outdated...because many of them are. Larger organizations are at a high risk for being disrupted (just take a look at what's happening with IBM) which means they need to learn how to operate like smaller companies. However, a paradox exists. As organizations grow so does their complexity which results in more sluggishness. However, these same organizations also want more profits which means they have to grow. So, they are stuck with trying to find a way to grow while becoming less complex. I talk about this much more in my book including exploring a few possible scenarios.

Degeneracy: Demystifying and destigmatizing a core concept in systems biology

Often relegated to the methods section of genetic research articles, the term “degeneracy” is regularly misunderstood and its theoretical significance widely understated. Degeneracy describes the ability of different structures to be conditionally interchangeable in their contribution to system functions. Frequently mislabeled redundancy, degeneracy refers to structural variation whereas redundancy refers to structural duplication. Sources of degeneracy include, but are not limited to, (1) duplicate structures that differentiate yet remain isofunctional, (2) unrelated isofunctional structures that are dispersed endogenously or exogenously, (3) variable arrangements of interacting structures that achieve the same output through multiple pathways, and (4) parcellation of a structure into subunits that can still variably perform the same initial function. The ability to perform the same function by drawing upon an array of dissimilar structures contributes advantageously to the integrity of a system. Drawing attention to the heterogeneous construction of living systems by highlighting the concept of degeneracy valuably enhances the ways scientists think about self-organization, robustness, and complexity. Labels in science, however, can sometimes be misleading. In scientific nomenclature, the word “degeneracy” has calamitous proximity to the word “degeneration” used by pathologists and the shunned theory of degeneration once promoted by eugenicists. This article disentangles the concept of degeneracy from its close etymological siblings and offers a brief overview of the historical and contemporary understandings of degeneracy in science. Distinguishing the importance of degeneracy will hopefully allow systems theorists to more strategically operationally conceptualize the distributed intersecting networks that comprise complex living systems.

Manipulation and abuse on social media

The computer science research community has became increasingly interested in the study of social media due to their pervasiveness in the everyday life of millions of individuals. Methodological questions and technical challenges abound as more and more data from social platforms become available for analysis. This data deluge not only yields the unprecedented opportunity to unravel questions about online individuals' behavior at scale, but also allows to explore the potential perils that the massive adoption of social media brings to our society. These communication channels provide plenty of incentives (both economical and social) and opportunities for abuse. As social media activity became increasingly intertwined with the events in the offline world, individuals and organizations have found ways to exploit these platforms to spread misinformation, to attack and smear others, or to deceive and manipulate. During crises, social media have been effectively used for emergency response, but fear-mongering actions have also triggered mass hysteria and panic. Criminal gangs and terrorist organizations like ISIS adopt social media for propaganda and recruitment. Synthetic activity and social bots have been used to coordinate orchestrated astroturf campaigns, to manipulate political elections and the stock market. The lack of effective content verification systems on many of these platforms, including Twitter and Facebook, rises concerns when younger users become exposed to cyber-bulling, harassment, or hate speech, inducing risks like depression and suicide. This article illustrates some of the recent advances facing these issues and discusses what it remains to be done, including the challenges to address in the future to make social media a more useful and accessible, safer and healthier environment for all users.

The Future of Work: Creating Purpose-Driven Organizations | Content in Context | Scoop.it

It's time to change the way we work. I don't mean a revolutionary time management system, or a productivity breakthrough. I'm talking about integrating purpose into the workplace.

While "finding your purpose" may sound like a nebulous buzzword, it's actually a viable way to revolutionize organizations and the workforce that powers them.

Ontwikkeling en relaties worden steeds belangrijker voor medewerkers. Met een mentorprogramma zorgt een organisatie dat beide aspecten ook echt mogelijk en beschikbaar zijn voor de medewerkers. Professionele en persoonlijke groei wordt bereikt door op ontwikkeling gerichte relaties te bouwen. www.mentorkracht.nl 

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s curator insight, April 9, 11:21 AM

Good initiative to create more organisations driven by a culture of purpose! The author believes purpose at work can be found in three categories:

 

1. Creating a positive impact: Make concrete near and long term impact on the world

 

2. Connecting with other people by building meaningful relationships:Work with and help others who appreciate you

 

3. Achieving continued personal growth: Get support toward exploring your personal interest and goals

Logic Trees for Inclusive Discourse - P2P Foundation

Logic Trees for Inclusive Discourse - P2P Foundation | Content in Context | Scoop.it
“"Making political decision-making truly inclusive is always challenging. Diversity of concerns and perspectives to be considered is a significant driver of complexity. How much inclusiveness can be achieved is limited by how much diversity can be integrated without losing the ability to organize constructive discourses that lead to adequate decisions, and that achieve this within a reasonable timeframe. I propose that “logic tree” methods of the so-called “Theory of Constraints” are highly promising as a means of managing this complexity in a logically and socially sound and inclusive manner. Mapping concerns by such logic trees allows to identify power structures (which turn up as root causes for concerns), conflicts, and to discover and discuss innovative ideas. The application of these methods to Internet governance and sustainable development objectives should be tried and researched."”
