how to hack your culture | networks | The Next Edge | Scoop.it

Ideas, information, trust, influence, opportunity and other resources move through networks of relationships without necessarily adhering to what the org chart says. Social network analysis tools now allow us to make the invisible visible so that we can be more deliberate in our approach to networks. There are a couple of big opportunities here:


Good ideas often have social origins. Innovation is fueled by the exchange of ideas and perspectives and identities, and the accompanying creative tension. It is in this exchange that we have the opportunity to recombine and synthesize, generating brand new opportunities. By deliberately and proactively building networks we can create more of those valuable intersections.

Multitude Project: How to play the open game in the present and future economy

Multitude Project: How to play the open game in the present and future economy | The Next Edge | Scoop.it

One of the problems we need to solve during this transition is to define a strategy to play the open game. How can we make sure that those who invest in open products get rewarded for their contribution? How can we make sure that one can feed his family from participating in the design, production and distribution of open products. We often hear: "if your product is successful you'll get copied"; "if you offer your recipe to everyone no one will buy your product, people will make it themselves"; etc.

 

Playing the open game is not just about releasing all the information and knowledge about the product.

Games require rules. A lot of efforts have been spent on drafting licenses for open products (see example from p2p foundation). But these licenses are, in some sense, as good as patents, i.e. as good as YOU can defend them.

Collective Intelligence in Neural Networks and Social Networks

Collective Intelligence in Neural Networks and Social Networks | The Next Edge | Scoop.it

"Context for this post: I’m currently working on a social network application that demonstrates the value of connection strength and context for making networks more useful and intelligent. Connection strength and context are currently only rudimentarily and mushily implemented in social network apps. This post describes some of the underlying theory for why connection strength and context are key to next generation social network applications."

Foucault and social media: life in a virtual panopticon

Foucault and social media: life in a virtual panopticon | The Next Edge | Scoop.it

By making our actions and shares visible to a crowd, social media exposes us to a kind of virtual Panopticon. This is not just because our activities are monitored and recorded by the social media service for the purposes of producing market analysis or generating targeted advertising. For the most part, we can and do ignore this kind of data harvesting. The surveillance that directly affects us and impacts on our behaviour comes from the people with whom we share.


There are no guards and no prisoners in Facebook’s virtual Panopticon. We are both guards and prisoners, watching and implicitly judging one another as we share content.

Value Networks and the true nature of collaboration

Value Networks and the true nature of collaboration | The Next Edge | Scoop.it

"Work life is completely changing as social networking and collaboration platforms allow a more human-centric way of organizing work. Yet work design tools, structures, processes, and systems are not evolving as rapidly, and in many cases are simply inadequate to support the new flexible and networked ways of working.

 

Value Networks and the true nature of collaboration meets this challenge head on with a systemic, human-network approach to managing business operations and ecosystems. Value network modeling and analytics provide better support for collaborative, emergent work and complex activities."
