Learning in a Changing World and Changing in a Learning World: Reflexively Fumbling towards Sustainability

"... the nature of sustainability challenges seems to be such that a routine problem-solving approach falls short. Transitions towards a more sustainable world require more than attempts to reduce the world around us into manageable and solvable problems but instead require a more systemic and reflexive way of thinking and acting with the realisation that our world is one of continuous change and ever-present uncertainty. This alternative kind of thinking suggests that we cannot think about sustainability in terms of problems that are out there to be solved or in terms of ‘inconvenient truths’ that need to be addressed, but we need to think in terms of challenges to be taken on in the full realisation that as soon as we appear to have met the challenge, things will have changed and the horizon will have shifted once again."

Regarded as a contemporary prophet of the new technology and economy, Kevin Kelly argues that the realms of nature and human construction are becoming one. Human-made things are becoming more lifelike, and life is becoming more engineered.

How 'systems thinking' is making the cloud transparent

How 'systems thinking' is making the cloud transparent | Sustainable Intelligence | Scoop.it
Given my current obsession with understanding everything I can about how cloud computing is beginning to look, feel and behave like a variety of other complex adaptive systems, I’ve started paying close attention to the widespread practice (outside...

 

All of this leads me to what I think is the key conclusion that has to be reached about the future architecture of our shared cloud computing “system”: transparency is essential. Without a steady stream of feedback data from whatever sources we determine — over time — have a significant impact on the operation of our applications, we are doomed to be unable to properly find the right “boundaries” for those applications.

Point People, System Builders, Network Weavers, and Intrapreneurs

Point People, System Builders, Network Weavers, and Intrapreneurs | Sustainable Intelligence | Scoop.it

"It seems to me that many social initiatives, NGOs, and enterprises are siloed, which is not surprising due to tough competition for funding, investment, and recognition. But there are people who design their work to intentionally and skillfully weave together different efforts, often in the roles of consultants or free agents. They are connectors and facilitators acting as a neutral third party to assess various entities and efforts, helping to weave them together in such a way that their impact is more easily scalable and effective. As we see a demand for increasing collaboration in the work world, we will need these cross-pollinators to facilitate the partnerships and exchanges that occur."
