‘Superorganisations’ – Learning from Nature’s Networks

‘Superorganisations’ – Learning from Nature’s Networks | Tinkering and Innovating in Education | Scoop.it

Fritjof Capra, in his book ‘The Hidden Connections’ applies aspects of complexity theory, particularly the analysis of networks, to global capitalism and the state of the world; and eloquently argues the case that social systems such as organisations and networks are not just like living systems – they are living systems. The concept and theory of living systems (technically known as autopoiesis) was introduced in 1972 by Chilean biologists Humberto Maturana and Francisco Varela.

Citizen science draws amateurs into scientific research | Harvard Magazine Jan-Feb 2014

Citizen science draws amateurs into scientific research | Harvard Magazine Jan-Feb 2014 | Tinkering and Innovating in Education | Scoop.it

"FOLDIT IS PART of a growing trend toward citizen science: enabling ordinary people, often without formal training, to contribute to scientific research in their spare time. The range of involvement varies. Some citizen scientists donate idle time on their home computers for use in solving problems large in scale (the search for intergalactic objects, as in Einstein@home) or small (folding proteins). Other projects encourage participants to contribute small bits of data about themselves or their environments. The Great Sunflower Project, for instance, provides a platform for logging and sharing observations of pollinators like bees and wasps. Still other efforts enlist laypeople to tag and analyze images: Eyewire, for example, a game developed by Sebastian Seung ’86, Ph.D. ’90, a professor of computational neuroscience at MIT, involves participants in mapping neurons in the brain."

Howard Rheingold's curator insight, January 26, 10:58 AM

Citizen science, enabled by inexpensive but highly accurate sensors and the use of digital media and networks to aggregate and qualify citizen-gathered data, is a form of augmented collective intelligence with a potentially rich future. This Harvard Magazine article is a good contemporary summary. For an in-depth look at this potential, I recommend the book Reinventing Discovery.

Chad Gaffield's curator insight, January 27, 5:34 AM

The full blossoming of `citizen science` has a long history in the social sciences and humanities that is now becoming much more important thanks to enabling digital technologies. One major example is the ways in which genealogists and academic researchers have collaborated to study demographic change by using sources such as church parish registers to track births, marriages and deaths. The former paper methodology now involves sophisticated digitization, computation and visualization that underpins both academic research and global businesses such as Ancestry. Other examples include public participation in developing museum exhibits and scholarly editions of significant texts.

Automating repetitive processes, including those you use to seek, filter, tag, store, and retrieve information, can be a useful infotention practice. I've Scooped IFTTT before. This blog post is by social media management service Buffer, so the examples are Buffer-centric, but any of these automation tools can be applied to a variety of platforms, services, and practices.
