What is so peculiar, even curious in a strange sense, concerning the current events of global unrest is not the actuality of the events themselves but the fact that these events do not coalesce (as of yet that is) around a particular and immediately recognizable leader or agenda. In fact to a very large extent it could be called a non-prophet...

Enter: The Transbeing Frank Herbert wrote that: “The beginning of knowledge is the discovery of something we do not understand.” And of course who in his true and integrated mind will not agree to this statement? So let us start or begin our knowledge of the coming singularity by observing the prediction wall that is in front of us, the...

Optimism is a political act. Entrenched interests use despair, confusion and apathy to prevent change. They encourage modes of thinking which lead us to believe that problems are insolvable, that nothing we do can matter, that the issue is too complex to present even the opportunity for change. It is a long-standing political art to sow the...

Recently during #journchat, I saw a reference to a post titled Does Your Twitter Handle Belong on Your Resume? The author is a PR college student, and the conversation around the post is mainly tactical, but the bigger picture surrounding our online identities is one I've been wanting to address for some time, so this gives me the opportunity....

“Social media has come to be understood as little more than a marketing opportunity. However, we see it as quite possibly the catalyst for the next stage of human evolution and, at the very least, a way to restore bottom-up participation, p2p value exchange and decentralized innovation to the realms of culture, commerce and government.” –...

I've been thinking about how identity passes through ubicomp environments and the types of experiences that could occur in such a relationship. We each carry a digital ID in our smartphone. This ID is a key that grants access to voice, data, location, acceleration, and other information both in the net and in our devices. These handshakes...

Get between 5 and 50 writers from space collective to each write chapters for a book, to then be collaborated and edited together and plausibly published. Most probably online. To go with the whole spacecollective thing some kind of science fiction springs to mind, or possibly modern philosophy from the perspectives of so many great young...

Or, The Risk of Extrapolating Linear Trends Against Non-Linear Systems. A common habit in forecasting, particularly in energy futures & economic growth, is to take roughly linear trends and extend them over the next few decades. The notion is that there is inertia in what has already happened that will make the future look markedly similar,...

Something I've noticed about internet communications (forums, msn, chat) is that they are more similar to my internal monologue than to face to face conversation. However, it is not a monologue, it is a dialogue or multilogue (polylogue? :P). I think this is primarily because of lower felt need to be be cautious, a willingness to risk displaying...
