Nice heat map of functionality as the differences of social networks become clear, the ease of access is being challenged by the diversity of locations being frequented by various groups, all with different expectation.
In considering the idea that a mixed group of people provide creative diversity, and therefore, potentially, power I was reminded of Napoleon Hill's 'Mastermind Group' - the similarity of this idea is striking ...
Joe Stafura's insight:
An excellent suggestion from Simon, Lateral Thinking and Six Hats were the two DeBono concepts that I have some familiarity.
In both cases cases he circumvents some dicey human thinking problems with simple to use tools, in my view both methods use cues to enhance self awareness into a higher state, providing the individual with access to areas of a problem space they might not be able to access otherwise.
It was fun to see one of my favorite quotes for illustrating the counter intuactive nature of complex issues;
"In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities, in the expert's mind there are few." - Shunryu Suzuki
What if you could control somebody's desires using a wireless device? It's not a Larry Niven novel — it's today's science. Researchers used a remote controller to stimulate neurons in mice that release the reward chemical dopamine. As a result, they changed the behavior of the mice, from a distance, in the absence of any tangible reward.
Here is an interesting talk on more than just the topic in the title (what's wrong with TED talks): (Welcome to 2014: why innovation won't work http://t.co/joS5KxHmtQ)...
Joe Stafura's insight:
I've been waiting for this TED talk, the one that says Gladwellism is a lazy approach to misunderstanding, not all innovation is good and a test to know the difference between complicated and complex problems are more important than a Turing Test.
Another Pittsbugher once stated we would all be famous for 15 minutes, but no one said we should be able to explain every known issue in a condensed time frame better suited to a conversation on "Tipping Points";-)
A new study offers insight into how a well-connected core brain network in the lateral prefrontal cortex and posterior parietal cortex, help coordinate the brain’s response to novel cognitive challenges.
Joe Stafura's insight:
It seems hard to believe that just a few years ago the "mature" brain model, that said once you were grown your brain was defined for your lifetime, whereas we now know that we can form it like clay with effort and desire.
In their computer simulations of human evolution, scientists have discovered the emergence of the “homo socialis” with “other-regarding” preferences.
Economics has a beautiful body of theory. But does it describe real markets? Doubts have come up not only in the wake of the financial crisis, since financial crashes should not occur according to the then established theories. Since ages, economic theory is based on concepts such as efficient markets and the “homo economicus”, i.e. the assumption of competitively optimizing individuals and firms. It was believed that any behavior deviating from this would create disadvantages and, hence, be eliminated by natural selection. But experimental evidence from behavioral economics show that, on average, people behave more fairness-oriented and other-regarding than expected. A new theory by scientists from ETH Zurich now explains why.
The ability to become part of a "super- organism" is well established (Mechanical Turk, Innocentive, etc.) bit clearly immature as far as the impact on society. It creates a new set of opportunities for structuring organizations and solving massive problems that are best addressed by massive, multiple, perspectives.
as the richness of the remote interaction platforms and data increases there could be a leap forwars that exceeds the industrial revolutions impact.
