What is Wirearchy ?

What is Wirearchy ? | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it
We all know and understand hierarchy - the enduring principle of the institutions that govern us and in which we work and live.
Jon Husband presents us a new emerging organizational principle, called Wirearchy.

The Internet is connecting customers, employees and communities and empowering them with information in ways never before possible. Taking decisions and managing organized activities are being impacted in powerful ways by interconnected networks of people and technology.

The impacts we're experiencing are creating new dynamics in organizations as well as emergent forms of organized activities that are based on participation and peer-to-peer interaction. As people get used to operating in these new conditions, often (but not always) the results are nimble, responsive, and results-focused networked groups and teams.

The new interconnected environment demands new principles for organizing collaborative activity. Traditional hierarchy does not lead and support networked activity as well as newer forms and principles.

And ... over the last ten years, it has become quite clear that the impacts of these living social networks will only grow, both in depth and reach.

Libraries continue to evolve in digital age

Libraries continue to evolve in digital age | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it
[...] in the era of digital media and instant information, more people are doing research and other traditional library tasks digitally. A short list of social media services that I use almost daily are Facebook, Flickr, and Nextdoor.com, but Harris County Library System has a presence on all of the major social media platforms. Other library amenities usually include some or all of the following: computer classes, e-book assistance, exhibits, outreach services, and proctored distance learning exams. The library's staff do still find it important to implement ways to appeal to millennials and other age groups who prefer to receive information on the internet or through apps on their phones or tablets. Public library apps like Overdrive and HOOPLA greatly appeal to our customers who are hungry for digital content, Sheaffer said. According to the Pew Research Center, the vast majority of Americans – 95 percent– now own a cellphone of some kind. The library staff engages with people who prefer digital information from person devices through outreach within their communities. Outreach take place in community spaces such as farmers markets, convention centers, or area school. The changes of technology and meeting the needs of the majority of people using digital devices is making public community libraries shift and re-focus being a vital attraction for the community. Through the library's app, people have access to streaming video, digital magazines, ebooks, music, and audio books. "With all of the information and experiences that are shared through technology, libraries are a primary resource in the knowledge ecosystem and play a key role in stimulating thought, action, and learning," Edward Melton said, Harris County Public Library director. Public Libraries level the playing field by providing free access to a wealth of information and resources that may not be accessible in other places of the community.
