James B. Glattfelder: Who controls the world? | Video on TED.com

James Glattfelder studies complexity: how an interconnected system -- say, a swarm of birds -- is more than the sum of its parts. And complexity theory, it turns out, can reveal a lot about how the economy works.

Bart van Maanen's curator insight, February 27, 2013 5:06 AM

Bijzonder interessant verhaal over hoe globale economische en financële netwerken tot macht leiden. Volgens de studie naar transnationale organisaties en bedrijven (600.000) waaraan Glattfelder meewerkte, zijn er 737 spelers die controle hebben over 80% van de aandeelhouderswaarde.

Interestingly, the claim made here is that universities are starting to make money from MOOC and it's coming from validation.  Are we going to see a 'freemium' model of education becoming prolific?

Teaching without Words: A Must See Ted Talk ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Teaching without Words: A Must See Ted Talk ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Pahndeepah Perceptions | Scoop.it

"What did you think about when you first read Teaching without Words ? Probably a voice inside you shouted out-loud : No way, this can't be possible! Well this is what mine did. I too was taken aback by the weirdness of this question because for me teaching always equals talking, communication using both oral,visual and written code. Words are the primary tools we use to convey meanings , of course there are non verbal tools as well but particularly in formal educational settings like schools and classrooms, words take the lion share of our language. Can you imagine yourself delivering a lesson with no words in it ? will it work? Well Peterson has an answer." ...

The title drew me as it reminded me of a book by Paul Farmer: Pathologies of Power.  It looks like a radical critical theory perpspective which might be needed.

Garrett Weiner's comment, February 26, 2013 4:44 AM
improved quantity and most definitely quality of work produced are often sacrificed by requirements of "seats in butts" for hours, similar to what the new CEO for Yahoo has just declared - in a surprising move. Although she moved from Google, so it's not entirely surprising. Google can be a high-stress environment, tho it is successful, it can churn and burn its employees.

“A college president has an obligation to be more outspoken than the average citizen…. Failure to be in a leadership role on matters of public policy…is an act of cowardice and an avoidance of responsibility. We need to teach our students that the civilized assertion of one’s beliefs is an obligation, an honor, and a pleasure.”

Why are they stressed? They are tethered to their technology and have no space to move. Creativity is not a technological function. It occurs in playfulness. Second point is that the pace of life is exhausting. We need to pause and find sacred space at times.
