OCCUPY WALL STREET (the theory)

OCCUPY WALL STREET (the theory) | Urban Life | Scoop.it
Really simple: Occupy Wall Street is an open source protest. This type of protest has been very effective over the last year in toppling regimes in north Africa. It's proving relatively successful in the US too.

A friend is challenging me about it toppling regimes there - the regimes is still in control - maybe the middle man has been cut out?

hi mark, the regimes "have" been toppled, but other factions of the elite are still in control ... revolutions are processes not one/off events ... we have not seen the end of the process in the middle east; lots of things can happen, including counter-revolutions ..

of course - the military being one of them. I imagine revolutions happening daily in the whole of life, very much the daily process.

How Shift Happens

How Shift Happens | Urban Life | Scoop.it

“Paradigm shift.” How many times have you heard that term thrown around?

 

We use “paradigm shift” to refer to initiatives that are big disruptions but that don’t meet the criteria Kuhn stated. The vast majority of organizational change announcements that claim or imply a paradigm shift are actually dressed-up extensions of what is already taking place. Significant modifications to the status quo are important, but they aren’t paradigm shifts. Even when we are careful to apply it properly ourselves, many of us are reluctant to correct clients who misunderstand or misuse the concept.
