School was invented to create a constant stream of compliant factory workers to the growing businesses of the 1900s. It continues to do an excellent job at achieving this goal, but it's not a goal we need to achieve any longer.

An interview with Maria Popova : fascinating to see how her routine works for her. Unsurprisingly, it involves a huge amount of reading.


It's also interesting to see the criteria she uses for what she'll just tweet vs what she'll pick up for her blog.

Survival Of The Fitting: 10 Important Trends To Survive Digital Darwinism

Survival Of The Fitting: 10 Important Trends To Survive Digital Darwinism | Social media and education | Scoop.it

"Digital Darwinism is a phenomenon when technology and society evolve faster than the ability to adapt. And, it threatens rigid and traditional practices everywhere."

 

To survive Digital Darwinism takes understanding of course, but more importantly, it takes leadership…it takes courage.

 

The future of business and customer and employee engagement is built upon a foundation of vision, trust, significance, and relationships. Set on this foundation are 10 pillars for which transformation is braced.

 

As Leon C. Megginson once said in paraphrasing Charles Darwin’s Origin of the Species, “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.”

 

10 Tenets to Survive Digital Darwinism

 

*Vision

*Strategy

*Culture

*People

*Innovation

*Influence

*Localization

*Intelligence

*Philanthropic Capitalism

*An ode to leadership

 

Once you listen, not monitor, but truly listen to customer activity and observe online behavior, you cannot help but feel both empathy and harmony. And naturally, the response it begets is only human.
