San Francisco Is a Moveable Feast, Too | Stearns Johnson

San Francisco Is a Moveable Feast, Too | Stearns Johnson | Technological Sparks | Scoop.it
Chris Macdonald attended the #NewTechCrawl around San Francisco on October 25, 2013. This blog post is a recap of the offices that he visited.

Via Arabella Santiago
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

This is a Movable Feast we may all want to follow. Here are some reviews of some interesting start-up companies and ideas that are taking off lately. We may be able to turn more communities into "Moveable Feast" as Hemingway described the early 19th Paris as a young man. He arrived in Paris and discovered all sorts of creative minds and events filling Paris. That "movable feast" happens with understanding of one's own personal needs and empathic understanding of others' needs and creating useful, exciting answers and expressions for those longings and wishes.

World leaders who trusted once again in this initiative, taking the chance to inspire and promote impact all around the world, showing that we should take the risk and improve the state of the world.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

A blog with a great message about trusting youth to come into their own as leaders.

 

Excerpt:

 

One Young World is no less than the most international and diverse of youth gathering in the world; more than a thousand young leaders, activists, social entrepreneurs and people from the private sector probably in the middle of their inflexion point. World leaders who trusted once again in this initiative, taking the chance to inspire and promote impact all around the world, showing that we should take the risk and improve the state of the world.

All Can Be Lost: The Risk of Putting Our Knowledge in the Hands of Machines

All Can Be Lost: The Risk of Putting Our Knowledge in the Hands of Machines | Technological Sparks | Scoop.it
We rely on computers to fly our planes, find our cancers, design our buildings, audit our businesses. That's all well and good. But what happens when the computer fails?
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Excerpt:

The crash, which killed all 49 people on board as well as one person on the ground, should never have happened. A National Transportation Safety Board investigation concluded that the cause of the accident was pilot error. The captain’s response to the stall warning, the investigators reported, “should have been automatic, but his improper flight control inputs were inconsistent with his training” and instead revealed “startle and confusion.” An executive from the company that operated the flight, the regional carrier Colgan Air, admitted that the pilots seemed to lack “situational awareness” as the emergency unfolded.

This post shares 5 tips about the care and feeding of possibly your most important asset - your network of support, advocacy and content.

Technology and post-modern democracy in action! Here is a case study to watch. Not all experiments are wins there are many usually that lead up to the winning discovery.

 

Each test provides lessons learned to improve the next test till the solution is discovered. So on our way we go looking to discover a more democratic world that allows people to make the most of one's own life within a healthy bodies,families, communities and a life sustainable planet.
