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.

(MULTI) - United Nations Bibliographic Information System Thesaurus | un.org | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it

" This online database Represents the fourth edition of the UNBIS Thesaurus and the first in all the official languages of the United Nations: Arabic, Chinese, Inglés, French, Russian and Spanish.

The multilingual UNBIS Thesaurus, created by the Dag Hammarskjold Library, United Nations Department of Public Information, contains the terminology used in subject analysis of documents and other materials Relevant to United Nations Programmes and activities. It is used as the subject authority of the United Nations Bibliographic Information System (UNBIS) and has-been incorporated as the subject lexicon of the United Nations Official Document System. It is multidisciplinary in scope, reflecting the Organization's wide-ranging Concerns. The terms included are meant to Accurately Reflect, Clearly, concisely and with a sufficient degree of specificity, matters of importance and interest to the United Nations. In Addition, since the inception of the Thesaurus in 1981, two primary criteria in the selection of descriptors Have Been:

a) consistency With the terminology used by the Organization itself as reflected in STI documents; and

b) Compatibility with terms included in thesauri produced or Utilized Within the UN System, in order to Facilitate exchange of information with Other Organizations. The Organizations of the United Nations System: such as the World Bank, ILO, WHO, FAO, IAEA and Unesco, are lead agencies in Their individual areas of activity and Their choice of descriptors has-been preferred.

The UNBIS Thesaurus is Continuously Being expanded and updated. Proposed new terms are, as needed, to Reflect the Concerns of the United Nations; They May be used provisionally until, after discussion and evaluation, officially They are ADOPTED and rendered in the six official languages. Users, THEREFORE, may encounter newer terms at different stages in the process. The third, 1995, edition of the Thesaurus was trilingual; it has-been a major undertaking to Have The Nearly 7,000 additional terms translated into three languages (to say nothing of the technical challenges of mounting a multilingual, multi-script thesaurus). The first, preliminary, online version was Launched in November 2001 "

Lack of appreciation towards Malaysian literature a worrying phenomenon

Lack of appreciation towards Malaysian literature a worrying phenomenon | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it

"Everyone, from the ministry down to the school officials, teachers, and parents, seemed to neglect literature and cast it aside as something insignificant. But if we do not appreciate our own poets, writers, and literary works, who else would? Who can we blame if not ourselves when our history is forgotten?

Then, there’s also the problem of language barriers. Many non-Malays do not make an effort to improve their Malay after SPM. Our mastery of the language is limited to casual conversation. Most of us have not read any book in Malay after we are done with secondary school.

One of my favorite quotes from this article...

 

_______________

 

"I read sweet stories, too. I don't want to make you think that I was a glutton for punishment. It's just that the meaty books - the books that made me feel, the books that made me think, the ones that dealt with situations that I'd never personally experienced - were the most gratifying of them all. And those are the ones that people want to remove from library shelves."

_______________

 

Another regarding those who want to ban books...

 

_______________

 

"Most people are not willing to communicate about difficult things, which is the crux of the problem that results in people wanting to ban books. They don't want to think about difficult things, either because something happened to them, or because it is so far from their reality that they want to ignore it."

_______________

 

And one more...

 

_______________

 

"How can we hope to stop the horrors that humanity can wreak upon itself if we do not allow ourselves to notice that they exist, discuss the problems, and move past them together?"

_______________

 

The best literature engages us with plot and thereby we allow ourselves to discover and consider our responsibilities to each other for reducing the pain and suffering resulting from those who are foolish or evil.

 

I always believed that true optimism was not the Panglossian belief that everything is wonderful as it is. But rather, the optimism  of Mother Teresa and Martin Luther King jr. where the first knowing is knowing that there are serious problems that can be addressed and never losing faith that "something" can be done to reduce the chasm between the present and the perfect. 

 

As in...

We are NOT perfect.

There is SOMETHING we can do.

Reaching perfection is unlikely.

So the choice is leave it be as short of perfection as it is or don't.
