Why Being The Most Connected Is A Vanity Metric - Forbes

Why Being The Most Connected Is A Vanity Metric - Forbes | WikiWiki | Scoop.it
Research shows that being the most connected person is not an effective way to build your network. The single best strategy is one that almost no one talks about.

There is work in keeping connections between the nodes as well.  That work can be called #NetworkWeaving and there should be paid jobs for it!

Information and Selforganization: A Unifying Approach and Applications

Selforganization is a process by which the interaction between the parts of a complex system gives rise to the spontaneous emergence of patterns, structures or functions. In this interaction the system elements exchange matter, energy and information. We focus our attention on the relations between selforganization and information in general and the way they are linked to cognitive processes in particular. We do so from the analytical and mathematical perspective of the “second foundation of synergetics” and its “synergetic computer” and with reference to several forms of information: Shannon’s information that deals with the quantity of a message irrespective of its meaning, semantic and pragmatic forms of information that deal with the meaning conveyed by messages and information adaptation that refers to the interplay between Shannon’s information and semantic or pragmatic information. We first elucidate the relations between selforganization and information theoretically and mathematically and then by means of specific case studies.

Stigmergy as a Universal Coordination Mechanism I: Definition and Components

Stigmergy as a Universal Coordination Mechanism I: Definition and Components | WikiWiki | Scoop.it

The concept of stigmergy has been used to analyze self-organizing activities in an ever-widening range of domains, including social insects, robotics, web communities and human society. Yet, it is still poorly understood and as such its full power remains underappreciated. The present paper clarifies the issue by defining stigmergy as a mechanism of indirect coordination in which the trace left by an action in a medium stimulates subsequent actions. It then analyses the fundamental concepts used in the definition: action, agent, medium, trace and coordination. It clarifies how stigmergy enables complex, coordinated activity without any need for planning, control, communication, simultaneous presence, or even mutual awareness. The resulting self-organization is driven by a combination of positive and negative feedbacks, amplifying beneficial developments while suppressing errors. Thus, stigmergy is applicable to a very broad variety of cases, from chemical reactions to bodily coordination and Internet-supported collaboration in Wikipedia.

I think this applies to schools in Canada to various degrees, as well. Schools are not created equal. As well, teachers answer to managers at all levels who are no longer in the classroom and, in some cases, did not want to be in the classroom.

If you want to help Flint, sign the petition, demand that the federal government take action, and then get involved yourself, wherever you live, so that this doesn't happen to you -- and so that the people we elect know they can no longer break the law as they rule by fiat or indifference. We deserve much better than this.

Is this our first digital generation gap?
