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.

Excellent challenging manifesto from Stephen Downes - todays online learning models are yesterdays with new names

NLafferty's curator insight, July 11, 2:54 AM
Lots of useful references in this presentation by Stephen Downes to follow up and read round. Also Downes helpfully makes the distinction between personal and personalised learning which I think are being used interchangeably in some contexts without individuals realising they are different things.
Annalisa Manca's curator insight, July 11, 10:21 AM

Interesting differentiation between personal and personalised learning

The Future Is about People

The Future Is about People | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it

We are in the midst of a complex, rapidly changing and uncertain landscape where we must consider how society, the economy, and the environment will collide in unexpected ways to shape the future.


Ultimately, the future will differ greatly from today with shifts in society, advancements in technology, and the creation of new forms of government. The one thing that will remain the same is the central role of people in defining the landscape of the future. Whether it is through enabling exploration through a mindset of abundance, enhancing robotics for interpersonal relationships, or connecting virtual and physical worlds for better sense making, any useful vision of the future must be human centric.
