Visual Complexity: Mapping Patterns for the Information Age

Visual Complexity: Mapping Patterns for the Information Age | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

The intersection of visualization and networks science is important to infotention, too. -- Howard 

 

"Data visualization is a running theme of visual literacy here, and Manuel Lima has been one of its biggest advocates since 2005 when, shortly after graduating from the Parson School of Design, he launched VisualComplexity — an ambitious portal for the visualization of complex networks across a multitude of disciplines, from biology to history to the social web. This month marks the highly anticipated release of Visual Complexity: Mapping Patterns of Information — a rigorously researched, beautifully designed, thoughtfully curated anthology of the world’s most compelling work at the intersection of these two relatively nascent yet increasingly powerful techno-cultural phenomena, network science and information visualization."

Structural diversity in social contagion

Structural diversity in social contagion | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

The concept of contagion has steadily expanded from its original grounding in epidemic disease to describe a vast array of processes that spread across networks, notably social phenomena such as fads, political opinions, the adoption of new technologies, and financial decisions. (...) We find that the probability of contagion is tightly controlled by the number of connected components in an individual's contact neighborhood, rather than by the actual size of the neighborhood. Surprisingly, once this “structural diversity” is controlled for, the size of the contact neighborhood is in fact generally a negative predictor of contagion. More broadly, our analysis shows how data at the size and resolution of the Facebook network make possible the identification of subtle structural signals that go undetected at smaller scales yet hold pivotal predictive roles for the outcomes of social processes.

Edge: BEYOND REDUCTIONISM: REINVENTING THE SACRED By Stuart A. Kauffman

Edge: BEYOND REDUCTIONISM: REINVENTING THE SACRED By Stuart A. Kauffman | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

Two fine authors, Richard Dawkins and Daniel Dennett, have written recent books, The God Delusion and Breaking the Spell arguing against religion. Their views are based on contemporary science. But the largest convictions of contemporary science remain based on reductionism.

I would like to begin a discussion about the first glimmerings of a new scientific world view — beyond reductionism to emergence and radical creativity in the biosphere and human world. This emerging view finds a natural scientific place for value and ethics, and places us as co-creators of the enormous web of emerging complexity that is the evolving biosphere and human economics and culture. In this scientific world view, we can ask: Is it more astonishing that a God created all that exists in six days, or that the natural processes of the creative universe have yielded galaxies, chemistry, life, agency, meaning, value, consciousness, culture without a Creator. In my mind and heart, the overwhelming answer is that the truth as best we know it, that all arose with no Creator agent, all on its wondrous own, is so awesome and stunning that it is God enough for me and I hope much of humankind.

Top 10 Project Management Trends for 2012

Top 10 Project Management Trends for 2012 | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

I found a great TOP 10 article that hits on us Agile PM’s as well as other PM trends foreseen for 2012 on ESI International’s PMO Blog. I am seeing all of this happen at my F100 clients, some moreso than others. The “Mixing of Agile with Traditional methods” is very very big in their quest to deliver value – especially for projects outside the software development area. Enjoy !

Sept leçons sur les changements systémiques à l'intention des gestionnaires

Sept leçons sur les changements systémiques à l'intention des gestionnaires | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it
Si nous prenons la nature comme professeur, nous sommes amenés à penser en termes de systèmes, les patterns fondamentaux dans le monde vivant. Les systèmes peuvent être incroyablement complexes, mais le concept est plutôt simple.

 

Leçon 1: Pour promouvoir les changements systémiques, suscitez l'engagement de la communauté et cultivez les réseaux. Leçon 2: Travaillez à plusieurs niveaux différents Leçon 3: Faites place à l'auto-organisation Leçon 4: Saisissez les occasions lorsqu'elles se présentent Leçon 5: Favorisez le changement, mais renoncez à l'illusion que vous pouvez le contrôler Leçon 6: Dites-vous que le changement prend du temps Leçon 7: Préparez-vous à être étonnés

"La bienveillance est superproductive"

"La bienveillance est superproductive" | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it
Pourquoi parler de bienveillance plutôt que de gentillesse?

 


Gentil, c’est à peu près le plus beau compliment que l’on puisse entendre dans une bouche infantile. Quand on arrive dans le monde des adultes, la gentillesse est souvent interprétée comme "docile", "soumis", "facile à manoeuvrer".


 


La bienveillance explore un espace d’adultes. Elle relève d’une question de performance de la relation et de capacité à passer l’obstacle de la divergence et du désaccord: savoir orienter son esprit vers ce qui est bien –en moi, en l’autre, dans les circonstances– pour y prendre appui plutôt que de se laisser fasciner par ce qui peut faire mal
