Biomimicry: A Tool for Innovation

Biomimicry: A Tool for Innovation | The Next Edge | Scoop.it

"Innovators from all walks of life—engineers, managers, designers, architects, business leaders, and more--can use biomimicry as a tool to create more sustainable designs. The Biomimicry process of consulting life’s genius, described in the Design Spiral, can serve as a guide to help innovators use biomimicry to biologize a challenge, query the natural world for inspiration, then evaluate to ensure that the final design mimics nature at all levels—form, process, and ecosystem."

Death and Taxes & Taxes

"Death and Taxes" is a large representational graph and poster of the federal budget. It contains over 500 programs and departments and almost every program that receives over 200 million dollars annually. The data is straight from the president's 2011 budget request and will be debated, amended, and approved by Congress to begin the fiscal year. All of the item circles are proportional in size to their funding levels for visual comparison and the percentage change from both 2010 and 2001 is included so you can spot trends.

"Quests" as organizing principles

"Quests" as organizing principles | The Next Edge | Scoop.it

Summary: "Instead of organizing people into "functions" we may take a cue from some of the greatest games, and organize around "quests". That may sound very designed, but what it means is ad hoc, problem centric organization in which people are allowed to organize themselves around what they perceive to be meaningful, important problems in need of solving."

"The IFF World Model is a framework for learning that allows us to engage with the true complexity of our global predicament. It focuses on the key factors in planetary stability and their inevitable interconnections in a living system (often referred to as the Gaian system).

 

The World Model is particularly powerful when combined with IFF’s Three Horizons framework, and is currently being developed into an interactive World Game."

IDEA: LET US CREATE “PLANET SCHOOLS”

 

"Ahead is a huge transformation of our economical system. The goal is a sustainable and resilient smart green economy. To support the huge transformation of our systems we have to re-design and re-educate on all levels: Attitude, values, methods, habits. In the end we might even be more happy than with destructive consumerist mindsets."
