Popularized comparison of two complex systems; the individual and the global brain.

"Brain Power: From Neurons to Networks is a 10-minute film and an accompanying TED Book. Based on new research on how to best nurture children’s brains from Harvard University’s Center on the Developing Child and University of Washington’s I-LABS, the film explores the parallels between a child’s brain development and the development of the global brain of Internet, offering insights into the best ways to shape both. The film and TEDBook launched at the California Academy of Sciences on November 8, 2012." http://bit.ly/QCcAnn

Visual Storytelling | Memetor | Scoop.it
Visual thinking can be applied to anything. The way we think about things visually is a matter of perspective. And perspective is the source of all great storytelling.

The Science of Storytelling: Why Telling a Story is the Most Powerful Way to Activate Our Brains

A good story can make or break a presentation, article, or conversation. But why is that? When Buffer co-founder Leo Widrich started to market his product through stories instead of benefits and bullet points, sign-ups went through the roof.

Good tips!  I can't claim to be an elite/remarkable writer but I develop and write the article in my head first.  When I formulate the title, then I feel I am ready to get going on the story!

New Rules for the New Economy

New Rules for the New Economy | Memetor | Scoop.it

1) Embrace the Swarm. As power flows away from the center, the competitive advantage belongs to those who learn how to embrace decentralized points of control.

2) Increasing Returns. As the number of connections between people and things add up, the consequences of those connections multiply out even faster, so that initial successes aren't self-limiting, but self-feeding.

3) Plentitude, Not Scarcity. As manufacturing techniques perfect the art of making copies plentiful, value is carried by abundance, rather than scarcity, inverting traditional business propositions.

4) Follow the Free. As resource scarcity gives way to abundance, generosity begets wealth. Following the free rehearses the inevitable fall of prices, and takes advantage of the only true scarcity: human attention.

5) Feed the Web First. As networks entangle all commerce, a firm's primary focus shifts from maximizing the firm's value to maximizing the network's value. Unless the net survives, the firm perishes.

6) Let Go at the Top. As innovation accelerates, abandoning the highly successful in order to escape from its eventual obsolescence becomes the most difficult and yet most essential task.

7) From Places to Spaces. As physical proximity (place) is replaced by multiple interactions with anything, anytime, anywhere (space), the opportunities for intermediaries, middlemen, and mid-size niches expand greatly.

8) No Harmony, All Flux. As turbulence and instability become the norm in business, the most effective survival stance is a constant but highly selective disruption that we call innovation.

9) Relationship Tech. As the soft trumps the hard, the most powerful technologies are those that enhance, amplify, extend, augment, distill, recall, expand, and develop soft relationships of all types.

10) Opportunities Before Efficiencies. As fortunes are made by training machines to be ever more efficient, there is yet far greater wealth to be had by unleashing the inefficient discovery and creation of new opportunities.

Global Action Networks | Networking Action

Global Action Networks | Networking Action | Memetor | Scoop.it

Global Action Networks (GANs) are a specific type of network. These are a new, innovative network that are addressing critical global issues like climate change, poverty, health, education, and human security.

 

They do this by integrating seven characteristics. GANs are:

 

Global and multi-level…local, regional, global

 

Entrepreneurial action learners…developing new tools, processes and relationships

 

Public goods producers…producing for public benefit

 

Diversity-embracing…collaborating across sectoral (business-government-civil society), linguistic, ethnic, north-south and other boundaries

 

Interorganizational networks…individuals have a role, but organizations are the key participants; neither hierarchy nor markets provide the principles, values or capacity

 

Systemic change agents…working on transformation, reform, and scaling up

 

Voluntary leaders…participants make commitments to push the boundaries of enhancing environmental, social and economic outcomes

7 Ways To Become A Better Reader And Writer

7 Ways To Become A Better Reader And Writer | Memetor | Scoop.it

Since writing involves providing someone (even if it’s just yourself) with reading materials, trying to comprehend what all that entails is an excellent idea for improving your chosen method of self-expression. But the best reading is reading accompanied by a functioning knowledge of how to understand and absorb information rather than mere skimming.
