Crossposted from Emergence Collective The Social API Lately there has been quite a bit of dialogue about writing a Social API (application programming interface) so that individuals and organizations can participate in "cross-platform" emergent innovation and action in a modular and plug-and-play manner. In our attempts to define...

Over the past few months, we've been discussing the various skills needed for effectively operating in a world characterized by information and accelerating change, and I've been assembling these ideas into a framework for a new thought architecture.

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...

We've entered into a new year, the channels have been flooded with list upon list of 2010 predictions and trends, and now we're laying the foundations for how we'd like to characterize the times - David Houle is calling it the Transformation Decade, a tweet from @RitaJKing mentioned The Imagination Age, and Seth Godin rang in the new year with a...

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...

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,...
