The Most Connected Woman In Silicon Valley? (The Polymath Paradox) | Knowledge Integration | Scoop.it

Liquid Law | simpler, fairer, more flexible

One of the basic principles of liquid law, is to make law more comprehensible, to make it readable, so that more of us can create with it the sort of agreements we want.

Upgrade your thoughtware
Expand The Box is a safe and astonishing learning environment for upgrading traditional thinking and behaviors. Without our knowing how, the standard thinking and behavior patterns we adopted from our parents, our culture and our education system severely limit both the quality of our relationships and our ability to respond creatively to the opportunities and challenges of life. Expand The Box installs swinging doors through walls that previously appeared to be impenetrable.

What I discovered very early on was that there was an awful lot of great knowledge about how to collaborate effectively. The problem was that this knowledge was largely locked in silos. Ironically, the people who best understood collaboration were not collaborating with each other.
