Apple is Chasing Luxury and It's Painful to Watch

Apple is Chasing Luxury and It's Painful to Watch | Frame 4 - DOOR to Learning and Change | Scoop.it
After putting down yet another slavishly admiring profile of top Apple designer Jony Ive this weekend in the egregiously-named "How to Spend It" magazine published by the Financial Times, I had a nagging sense that something was wrong. Of course, like all the strategically placed articles about Ive in recent weeks, this one was yet another indirect attempt by Apple to create a slavishly admiring article about the incipient Apple Watch. The Watch, Apple is desperate to let us know, is i
Eugene Fernandez's insight:

Being a long term Apple user. I agree with your comments and analysis about technology being a leveler - Given the sophistication of the product it required economies of scale to justify the return, though we add a multiplier in Apple's case.

 

The notion of technology being the great leveler, fitted with the value and ethos of 'the counter culture' which influenced Steve in his formative period, though fame and the accompanying trophies would have dulled this influence over time.

 

Perhaps the danger lies in a final and fundamental slaying of the values of the rebel nerd with utopian idealism to the glam, sophisticated, urbane individual. The danger lies in severing the links altogether.

Individual Transformations in Groups: The Role of Focal Person during Archetypal Paradoxes

Individual Transformations in Groups: The Role of Focal Person during Archetypal Paradoxes | Frame 4 - DOOR to Learning and Change | Scoop.it
The notion of the ‘archetypal paradox’ was advanced as the group context in which the ‘focal person’ emerges. Within the period of the archetypal paradox, the focal person serves to crystallize and to name the sense of the entrenchment that members feel and the unconscious concerns that are at the core of the archetypal paradox, to challenge and to critique the present order of things, and/or to energize the group toward transformation of the social order. Through these three key functions, the

Coming out of the Organization Shadow: Hidden Aspects of the Self in Relation to the Group

Coming out of the Organization Shadow: Hidden Aspects of the Self in Relation to the Group | Frame 4 - DOOR to Learning and Change | Scoop.it
Eugene Fernandez's insight:

 

An insightful article. Working with the shadow side of organisations may and usually evokes its own responses reforming and affirming archetypes buried within the fabric of organisations.It is there awaiting to be embraced as a foundational and integral part of our (constructed) reality, much like dark energy and its impact on the manifest universe. In my experience this takes time to negotiate within organisations and needs facilitators who insightfully see this as the artful dance of practice.

The McMindfulness Craze: The Shadow Side of the Mindfulness Revolution

The McMindfulness Craze: The Shadow Side of the Mindfulness Revolution | Frame 4 - DOOR to Learning and Change | Scoop.it
If meditation ordinarily leads to numbing detachment, what would a meditation that valued self-discovery look like?
Eugene Fernandez's insight:

Great article, illustrating that meditation as followed in the West misses some of the broader and deeper sociocultural contexts that informs the practice, in this case from India and that practising meditation in and of itself without understanding its deeper cultural and spiritual significance offers limited results. The author also confines Meditation within a narrow Buddhist frame whilst Meditation draws also from other traditions.

Eugene Fernandez's comment, January 11, 7:26 PM
Meditation and yoga are ways of being that are woven into the fabric of every day life in many parts of the world. It has made a difference to my life and has helped me and in particular during periods of crisis. Like you the practice has influenced me to follow through in other areas of my life including being conscious of what I eat and how I live, though with varying success. I liked the last paragraph of the article as it highlights the authors main point. 'We need to investigate the content and meaning of what we become aware of in meditation instead of attempting to transcend it or reduce it to what we already believe...'

The Differences Between The Brains Of Introverts And Extroverts

The Differences Between The Brains Of Introverts And Extroverts | Frame 4 - DOOR to Learning and Change | Scoop.it
Introverts and extroverts aren't always that drastically different, but research has shown that differences in their brains do exist.
Eugene Fernandez's insight:

Being an 'Ambivert' helps to marry the benefits of both the Introvert and Extrovert - Though one may be our 'innate' or true type and the other our 'learned' response. The constructed nature of our reality coupled with neuroplasticity means we can develop and grow into our preferred realty. It will take a desire for a preferred outcome coupled with focus, attention and persistent application for this to eventuate.

The Urban Dictionary lists Bonto as something that is awesome, cool, off the chain, off the hook, freaking amazing or just chill.Edward de Bono used the word to describe a different form of limerick. He emphasized the importance of the structure that led to the fourth line being able to stand on its own, as a general philosophical reflection on life.Next to rhyming, syllables and beat are important too. He argued that a Bonto does not exist as a separate identity unless it retains the structure

What Role can Design Play in Social Change? | Frame 4 - DOOR to Learning and Change | Scoop.it
To begin to talk about the idea of “reinterpreting the role of a designer,” I will start with bringing two unfortunate stereotypes to the surface. The first unfortunate stereotype is the idea that designers only make “facades.” We aestheticize innovation. We don’t start business, we brand business. We don’t create products, we package ideas. We don’t build community, we design housing. This stereotype exists, in part, because of what society expects us to make, but is also a result of the old mo

Where do the wealthiest 1% live?

Where do the wealthiest 1% live? | Frame 4 - DOOR to Learning and Change | Scoop.it
Eugene Fernandez's insight:

According to Credit Suisse, the 1% refers to 47 million people anyone with wealth over $ 798,000. To be in the top 10% you need $77,000 of assets.

Oxfam International released a report to The World Economic Forum that the richest 1% owns 48 percent of the global wealth. In 2014, Oxfam reported that the 85 wealthiest individuals in the world have a combined wealth equal to that of the bottom 50% of the world's population, or about 3.5 billion people. More recently, in January 2015, Oxfam reported that the wealthiest 1 percent will own more than half of the global wealth by 2016.

The link between memory and stories

The link between memory and stories | Frame 4 - DOOR to Learning and Change | Scoop.it
The link between memory and stories is tightly woven. You can’t understand story without understanding memory. This post looks at some of the research.
Eugene Fernandez's insight:

My summary of this excellent article - A story that is complete, plausible and well told continues to be remembered even after more recent facts contradict it. Interestingly it's the 'stickiness' of the first story that usually win's. The forgetting curve above illustrates that  as quickly as 20 minutes and you can lose 40% of what you just learned and in 1 day you can lose 70%. We remember things more when it is charged with emotion and out of the ordinary and showing a vivid image along with the story aids in as much as 88% recall. There is also a high correlation between narrativity and the amount of information recalled.
