Brian Robertson wrote the Rule of Individual Action: No matter how clearly we’ve defined the rules, policies, and processes, we will occasionally see a need for action which doesn’t fit within the defined system. In most organizations we're tempted to hide such Individual Action for fear of blame, but doing so costs the...

I'm sure many of you know about the great mathematician, Paul Erdos, and may have heard this story about him (from Wikipedia): His colleague Alfréd Rényi said, "a mathematician is a machine for turning coffee into theorems", and Erdős drank copious quantities. (This quotation is often attributed incorrectly to Erdős himself.)[6] ...

Just a quick thought, I agree with the video series on Spacecollective that in the next ~100 years homo sapiens will be done as a species. By done I mean basically extinct. There may be small amounts of people who decided not to modify themselves, the last sapiens. But then, we don't evolve into another species - we evolve into many species. We're...

This weekend I experienced a snowcrash; a moment where the seemingly disparate pieces of information floating in my head came together. A synapse fired, a new connection was made, and I was brought to a new level of consciousness, a new way of seeing the world. In reading this over, it almost sounds obvious, but it took me a while to get here. I...

The world as we know it is in disruption. Maybe it's always been in disruption, pushing us through cycles of apparent chaos so that evolution can continue and new paradigms emerge. Thanks to social technologies, we're growing into a globally connected communication system, and seem to be heading towards a tipping point. But what is it that we're...

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,...

Recently during #journchat, I saw a reference to a post titled Does Your Twitter Handle Belong on Your Resume?
