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.

Co-Editor Big Data "> LINNET TAYLOR, Tillburg University Assist Professor for Data Ethics, Law and Policy. Tillburg Institute for Law, Technology and Society (TILT). _______________________________________________________________________________   Managing Risk in the Digital Society will be the central theme of the 13th International Conference on Internet, Law "> When the concept of risk society was created by Beck and Giddens, Internet and ICT were in a state of embryonic development. Nevertheless, it was already felt that ICT would be one of the paradigmatic fields in terms of the rising complexity of modernity. Three decades after the appearance of this concept, during which risk has been studied and managed, a wide-ranging debate must be opened on the current state of risk in the digital society. Therefore, we must analyse ICT as generators of new risks and assess how society is confronting them; just as we must reflect on how ICT have influenced the perception and treatment of social risks. What uses of technology are associated with specific risks? How does society perceive risks, new and traditional? Are risks an opportunity to change and improve society? How do we anticipate them and who is entitled to regulate them and establish their limits? These and other questions will be the object of the debate within the Conference. The general development of the Internet, and specifically the rise of big data or the Internet of Things, have meant a key step forward for the development of society in issues such as health, security, quality of life, saving time and energy or citizen empowerment, which has brought multiple benefits – big and small – to humanity. Moreover, there are numerous uses of ICT that more or less immediately can pose conflicts in relation to fundamental rights, such as the right to privacy, the right to freedom of expression and information, and even new rights developed within this technological society of risk, such as the right to informational self-determination. We must ask how far the private actors, mainly the big multinationals, can determine the new rules and limits of the development of ICT. We are witnessing a growing phenomenon of self-regulation in which specific sectors establish their own codes of conduct and refer the resolution of possible conflicts to arbitration. Is democratic legitimacy being undermined by these measures? What should the impassable limit on the regulating autonomy of private actors be? Can the market establish its own rules, bearing in mind that in most cases they will be determined by what technology permits? Furthermore, given these new perceptions of risk, the legislator has been expanding criminal law to give a quick response to managing this risk through guarantees so far intrinsic to the criminal systems of the democratic state and rule of law. An increasingly more global society generates new risks that need a political response, from the environmental challenges to the management of phenomena such as migration, terrorism or growing inequality. Moreover, the digital world has accelerated the processes of political transformation, pressuring towards a society that is an ever more interconnected but at the same time disconnected from its main political institutions, which poses new and numerous questions. ICT have opened public spaces that oblige us to rethink the monopoly of the traditional political actors and their relationship with citizens. The digital media has fragmented and revolutionized the panorama of communication beyond the usual public opinion generators. Internet has given way to new forms of protest beyond physical borders, allowing the articulation of new political forces that question the established order. Phenomena such as Wikileaks have made clear the vulnerability of the system when keeping information secret and under control. In short, the digital world opens new spaces and opportunities to rethink the current political order while highlighting the risks and uncertainties.   The twelve previous conferences have consolidated the Conference on Internet, Law "> The Conference on Internet, Law "> For more information about the Conference please contact: idpconference@uoc.edu.

Google has never been a company to rest on its laurels. Over the past two decades, the search engine giant has continued surprising, delighting, and serving its users with new features, layouts, and inner workings. Not all of these features have been successful, but it’s never long before a disliked feature is improved, replaced, or modified.
