We’re all Minorities Now - Time for A Change in Thinking

We’re all Minorities Now - Time for A Change in Thinking | Exploring Change Through Ongoing Discussions | Scoop.it

This thought-provoking, timely piece was written by one of my favorite people, Aaron Biebert on 8pmwarrior. Bravo, well put!


This is a must read as we usher in 2012


Here's an excerpt and what caught my attention:


The world has come to our backyard and now our race, political affiliation, language, religion, and fashion actually put us in the minority. Are you ready?


**When we swim down the stream from our little pond to the big ocean, we find out the truth. Our traditional majorities are not only meaningless,


**but they might cause us to lean on the wrong strength for a globalized world.


****Most people on Earth don’t speak a certain way, have a certain look, believe a certain thing, or act a certain way. Not even close. Anyone living in a majority mindset is living in a fantasy land as the world gets more connected.


**We won’t be able to ignore it.


**The big world out there is full of our future clients, doctors, suppliers, friends, and business partners.

So now what?


****Leaders need to change their understanding of strength and seek out opportunities to collaborate with others.


****We need more partners. We need to build more coalitions and seek more consensus when making decisions. Common ground will be more valuable than higher ground.


****The pride in any “majority” must be replaced with a newfound sense of wonder, awareness, and appreciation for others who are different.


**It’s time to focus on common ground and common problems.

Finding Meaning Together on the Real-Time Web

This is an inspiring piece by Jeff Pulver, Founder of the #140 Conferences, angel investor, curator and so much more. I have had the good fortune of attending the #140 Conferences, meeting people in real life, hearing about miracles that occurred as a result of connecting through social networks.


Excerpt:


We are seeing what happens when you are living in a world where hundreds of millions of people can discover each other, and communicate directly; where barriers to entry and in fact gatekeepers slowly go away.


We are seeing what happens when people discover each other, discover that they can feel and connect, and can touch and engage.


We now have generations of people who realize that they are living in a world of 7 billion other people, and where for the first time in our human history every voice matters. There is profoundness in terms of where this brings us.


There is a virtualization even though we are in the physical. There is still something happening spiritually, that is touching, changing, and connecting many of us.


Some of us, unfortunately are kind of numb to it. They do not get it. They feel something but they do not know why they feel it.


There are other people who actually have this intense ability not only to feel, but sometimes affect positive change. So these technologies are helping us accelerate some things.

Questions: The Bedrock of Change and Creativity

Questions: The Bedrock of Change and Creativity | Exploring Change Through Ongoing Discussions | Scoop.it

This article by Polly LaBarre for Harvard Business Review is aimed at the Business Community but is really a lesson for everyone, no matter what their interest.


The gist is:


Don't enter a conversation with only answers.  The questions you ask could be the catalyst for your next or biggest leap forward. 


Questions value and empower those you are asking, and create conversation, as opposed to the boundaries which are set when people come into a conversation with only answers.


The big question referred to in the article was asked in 1999 by IBM Director Jane Harper


***In an era when every young, gifted programmer, engineer, or entrepreneur's first instinct was to write their own business plan or head to a fast-growing startup, she asked:


***"Why would really great people — the best technical and managerial talent in the world — want to come work at IBM?"


**This question spawned Extreme Blue in Cambridge, Mass., which has since grown into a thriving platform for innovation and talent acquisition.  That this type of talent would go to Big Blue, was previously unthinkable.

Interpreting Media: Clay Shirky Speaks

Interpreting Media: Clay Shirky Speaks | Exploring Change Through Ongoing Discussions | Scoop.it
If you don’t know his name already, jot it down: it’s Clay Shirky, and he’s the next big name in media theory.


What caught my attention:


Shirky reminds us that new media is just that—new; we’re still culturally negotiating how to use platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Linkedin & more.


And while Shirky admits that the internet has opened the floodgates to a wave of amateur media, he believes that we’re in a stage of widespread experimentation.


Writes Shirky:


“The low-quality material that comes with the increased freedom accompanies the experimentation that creates the stuff we will end up prizing.”

Occupy the Mind the Rest Will Follow

Occupy the Mind the Rest Will Follow | Exploring Change Through Ongoing Discussions | Scoop.it

"The stirring we are witnessing though being non conceptualized at present, is one of health, and birth, like all births it is wild eyed and in a sense confused, ambiguous, unclear and at times will unfortunately lash at the world, unwilling to be defined by its past.

 

The crisis engendered by this inner stir is here to stay for a long while; it is a period of necessary instability to which we need to learn to adapt and create new language and new tools, made for a new kind of mind by a new kind of mind."


Occupy the Mind, the rest will follow


Project: Polytopia


What is so peculiar, even curious in a strange sense, concerning the current events of global unrest is not the actuality of the events themselves but the fact that these events do not coalesce (as of yet that is) around a particular and immediately recognizable leader or agenda.


In fact to a very large extent it could be called a non-prophet organization, there is no prophet and there is no prophecy, there is also no specific nation to which this is true, the unrest is quite global in its reach and impact.


I submit to you that the stirring we are witnessing all over the world, is the awakening of a new kind of mind.


Where is our future?

Whilst it is true that the levels of inequalities in the modern world have reached new peaks of ridiculousness


(see: Here's What The Wall Street Protesters Are So Angry About...) it is also true, at least according to S.Pinker in the economist that the level of violence is the lowest ever ( see: Human violence


Punchline: People are less violent than ever, two authors argue. They just can’t agree why. )

Can Technology Help You Deal with Uncertainty?

Can Technology Help You Deal with Uncertainty? | Exploring Change Through Ongoing Discussions | Scoop.it

Great article with thought provoking observations, good suggestions and even a graphic to highlight her ideas that speaks for itself. by Conversationagent,


Intro:


"This is a slightly different question I asked a couple of years back. Invest in better promises There are many ways to deal with uncertainty."


Here's are a few thing that caught my attention:


Today, we put the term "social" in front of media, marketing, networks and bolt features on. Social media is the modern version of the telephone.


****Social media is not the conversation.


****It's not the answer to all your prayers.


****If you're at the point of praying, then the business model is the one needing help.


****It's the room in which you hold the conversation. It still comes down to saying, doing, or producing something valuable for your customer.


It's early days. Many a platform being built could be the predecessor of something else much more useful in the future.


****Right now, people don't converse, they comment. Big difference. Technologies have evolved greatly.


We're still catching up. - yes we are

Defining the Big Shift

Defining the Big Shift | Exploring Change Through Ongoing Discussions | Scoop.it

John Hagel from Edge Perspectives has written a thought provoking and insightful post about the shift in our culture and its impact on business.


Here's an excerpt>


Given the growing uncertainty in the world around us, we must master a new set of techniques required to access, attract and accumulate resources to unleash peer based learning in far more flexible ways than conventional push programs permit.


But perhaps this is too high level.


It may help to develop this perspective just a bit more in the context of “from-to” contrasts. About one month after the release of our Shift Index report, one question that keeps coming up is whether we can offer a succinctly define what the Big Shift is that our Shift Index seeks to measure.

The emergence of Talents Networks

Absolutely fascinating - this is the future and it's happening now.......


by Didier Marlier


Intro:


In the true spirit of P.F.E. (Proudly Found Elsewhere), so typical of the Open Source Economy, I borrowed the title (and a lot of the content) of this post to Neil Perkin, one of my colleagues in Gerd Leonhard’s “Futures Agency”. I’d like to thank him for the source of inspiration his article was for me and hopefully will be for many of you.


Neil enthusiastically describes the emergence of Talent Networks and the way these start to organize and work. One of them is a new New-York based advertising agency named “Co”. “The name deliberately evokes their business model of co-creation, collaboration and co-venturing, of a small, agile organizational hub that works with and draws from a list of 40 agencies, businesses and consultancies that are specialists in particular services ranging from digital marketing, to PR, Social Media, Design, technology, gaming, events and media” writes Neil.


**This to him is symptomatic of a broader trend: the rise of Talent Networks.


The principal causes for that emergence is to be found in the digitization and the recession (which) have combined to create en environment in which the value of much of what we know is depreciating, and which increasingly requires a culture and a pace of innovation that is consistent with start-ups (…) Corporate down-sizing and technology have combined to create an influx of highly talemted individuals into the market with the ready means to turnthat talent into real value (…)

Cities Are Immortal; Companies Die

Fascinating post by John Hagel from Silicon Valley @jhagel! Great insights, food for thought...........

 

Here's an excerpt:

 

All companies die. All cities are nearly immortal.

Both are type of networks, with different destinies. There are two basic network forms: organisms or ecosystems. Companies are like organisms, while cities are like ecosystems.

 

All organisms (and companies) have share many universal laws of growth. Creatures age in the same way, whether they are small animals, large mammals, starfish, bacteria, and even cells. They share similar metabolic rates. Similar distributions. All ecosystems (and cities) also share universal laws. They evolve and scale in a similar fashion among themselves — whether they are forests, meadows, coral reefs, or grasslands, or villages.

 

Geoff West from the Santa Fe Institute has piles of data to prove these universal and predictive laws of life. For instance, organisms scale in a 3/4 law. For every doubling in size, they increase in other factors by less than one, or .75. The bigger the organism, the slower it goes. Both elephants and mice have the same number of heartbeats per lifespan, but he elephant beats slower.

 

Ecosystems and cities, on the other hand, scale by greater than one, or 1.15. Every year cities increase in wealth, crime, traffic, patents, pollution, disease, infrastructure, and per capita by 15%. The bigger the city, the faster it goes.

A less than one rate of exponential growth inevitably leads to an s-curve of stagnation. All organisms and companies eventually stagnate and die. A greater than one rate of exponential leads to a hockey stick upshot of seemingly unlimited growth. All cities keep growing. As West remarked: We can drop an atom bomb on a city and 30 years later it will be thriving.

The Future of Money is Abundance

The Future of Money is Abundance | Exploring Change Through Ongoing Discussions | Scoop.it
We now enjoy an abundance of information goods unparalleled in history, thanks to the negligible marginal cost of distribution allowed by the internet. This has in turn disrupted old markets for such goods, and spurred exciting business model innovations. Forward-thinking companies are now working out ways to share value for free, and to leverage the resulting gains in attention and reputation to make money in the marketplace. While businesses react to a logic of abundant production, and work out how to adapt their models, there is another area which has received less attention: abundance-based currencies.

Symbionomics: The Film | Stories of the new economy

Visit the site for the introductory video. These folks were successful at fundraising on Kick-Starter.

 

From the site:

"While many see the recession as another blip in the business cycle, we see a deeper transformation- perhaps as profound as the Industrial Revolution. Whether we are talking about fundamental notions of property or that which motivates us to work in the first place, today new social patterns are emerging that better serve our networked world. The story we are telling is one of hope and new possibility. While many conventional institutions are crumbling, in this moment there is a unique chance for humanity to fundamentally reinvent its presence on this planet.

 

Episodes
For the next year, we’ll be devoting each month to a different pattern, trend, or big idea. We’ll cast off on a journey of discovery with you- our intrepid network of new economy pioneers. We’ll be exploring the contours of this new economy together, finding new knowledge, sharing it with each other, discussing, and boiling it all down to the essence. At the end of each month, we’ll put together a video highlighting what we’ve learned together.

Here's just one of them, from Dae Mellencamp, CEO of Vimeo:


**** "The future of social media is the loss of the distinction between media and social interaction online. Mass media and social media will be seamlessly integrated across devices and platforms to offer relevant, dynamic, personalized experiences for people anywhere.


**Discoverability and the import of editorial curation will not be lost, but rather inherently incorporated into the environments for richer and more customized experiences."

Salons will to be held throughout the fall and winter, each focused on one contemporary institution in turmoil.


They will be simulcast, and the video footage will be archived on TED.com on the TEDx channel.


The overarching concept for the year is 'Institutionalized'- what we can do when the structures we design to meet our collective needs are no longer working, and what we can do to accelerate change- especially when it is urgent, controversial, or there are a lot of stakeholders, many of whom have a vested interest in the status quo.

Intro:


The panel was stacked with financial heavyweights Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Google, Larry Summers, Former Treasury Secretary and President of Harvard University, Hedge Fund Manager Eddie Lampert, venture capitalist Stephen DeBerry and Mellody Hobson, President of Ariel Investments. The panel was moderated by Tom Stewart, Chief Knowledge Officer at Booz and Company


****The question of short-termism was the subject of a lively panel at  Stewart, Chief Knowledge Officer at Booz and Company. The full panel can be viewed here.


The highlights in this post bellow follow an exchange between


****Larry Summers and Eric Schmidt, in response to Tom Stewart's question about


*****whether it is difficult for a CEO to embrace the long view if he has to live and die quarter-by-quarter.


****Schmidt immediately turned this question back to the panel and audience, by posing the rhetorical question,

Is Massively Collaborative Mathematics Possible? Yes, Here's How!

Clay Shirky http://www.shirky.com referred to this blog post in his talk today “Social Media, Curating, and Convening: Getting Value from Group Interaction” http://www.extension.iastate.edu/broadcasts/nevc2011/


The post is about The Polymath Project on Growers blog Clay talked about how to harvest collective wisdom on complex problems.


Intro:


"Of course, one might say, there are certain kinds of problems that lend themselves to huge collaborations. One has only to think of the proof of the classification of finite simple groups, or of ar of a rather different kind of example such as a search for a new largest prime carried out during the downtime of thousands of PCs around the world.


****But my question is a different one.


****What about the solving of a problem that does not naturally split up into a vast number of subtasks?


****Are such problems best tackled by people for some that belongs to the set ? (Examples of famous papers with four authors do not count as an interesting answer to this question.)


Here's a highlight from this piece: Think of the implications in other areas of collaboration in ways that are valuable to your community.


**Suppose one had a forum (in the non-technical sense, but quite possibly in the technical sense as well) for the online discussion of a particular problem. The idea would be that anybody who had anything whatsoever to say about the problem could chip in.


**And the ethos of the forum — in whatever form it took — would be that comments would mostly be kept short. In other words, what you would not tend to do, at least if you wanted to keep within the spirit of things, is spend a month thinking hard about the problem and then come back and write ten pages about it.


****Rather, you would contribute ideas even if they were undeveloped and/or likely to be wrong. This suggestion raises several questions immediately. First of all, what would be the advantage of proceeding in this way?

The Question: What is the most interesting thing you came across today? | Exploring Change Through Ongoing Discussions | Scoop.it

Great piece by Ross Dawson about Twitter, and how people can add something to what he refers to as the "global brain" which is a knowledge network that he says will become Twitter News Network.


Very interesting links to other discussions with Gerd Leonhard and the future of Twitter.


Twitter has moved from asking ‘what are you doing now?’ to ‘what’s happening?’, and now describes itself as an ‘information network‘.


**The Twitter News Network is a manifestation of the global brain, in which we create value for others by contributing to the visibility and availability of high-value information.


While many contribute nothing of value to Twitter,


****many extraordinarily talented and interesting contributors are doing what they can to add value to others. It is a choice we make, by how we engage in our social networks.


****If we consider what we can best contrbute to global consciousness, it is very likely the most interesting things we come across.


**The most intriguing, through-provoking, stimulating ideas, whether they be in the form of an article, a video, a conversation, or anything else from the vastness of media and ideas we encounter each day.


**If everyone just shared the single most interesting thing they came across each day, we would all be so much better off.


****This tiny effort would add value to everyone. We could all ask ourselves: What is the most interesting thing I saw today?, and share it, since it would very likely be of interest to many others.

There’s Something Happening Here | Exploring Change Through Ongoing Discussions | Scoop.it
What’s behind all the social protests erupting from Tunisia to Wall Street? Some call it The Great Disruption. Others call it The Big Shift. You decide.


Great article!


When you see spontaneous social protests erupting from Tunisia to Tel Aviv to Wall Street, it’s clear that something is happening globally that needs defining. There are two unified theories out there that intrigue me. One says this is the start of “The Great Disruption.” The other says that this is all part of “The Big Shift.” You decide.


Paul Gilding, the Australian environmentalist and author of the book “The Great Disruption,” argues that these demonstrations are a sign that the current growth-obsessed capitalist system is reaching its financial and ecological limits. “I look at the world as an integrated system, so I don’t see these protests, or the debt crisis, or inequality, or the economy, or the climate going weird, in isolation — I see our system in the painful process of breaking down,” which is what he means by the Great Disruption, said Gilding.
