People are communicating in the long tail. The long tail is basically the the niche market leveraged by digital technology. The efficiency, and in particular the spatial efficiency, of a digital network liberates retail from the "tyranny of the physical," resulting in a profitable business model for selling obscure products. In the...

Via tackling the fallacy of objectivity I am raising important points about rationality, reality, and subjectivity. Objectivity is a fallacy because if a human removes himself or herself from his or her emotions and perceptions the human then ceases to be human. It is simply not possible to be objective. Emotions are essential for higher brain...

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.

Does it leave a bad taste in your mouth? When you hear that word, what does it make you think or feel? Evil, greedy and exorbitantly wealthy individuals seem to come to many people's minds. I don't blame them, just look at the numbers for U.S. compensation rates. In 1968, the Chairman of General Motors received compensation of $795,000, which...

At this stage, I believe, science and mathematics are the only ways of knowing. There are other ways. There is introspection to find and convey meaning. There are self-contained rules, as in gaming or computer programming, that can be made-up and learnt. Nevertheless, these ways of knowing are not concerned with empirical inquiry about the...

Eyeclipse: Open your eyes Most people, including ourselves, live in a world of relative ignorance. We are even comfortable with that ignorance, because it is all we know. When we first start facing truth, the process may be frightening, and many people run back to their old lives. But if you continue to seek truth, you will eventually be able...

Claiming that something can move faster than light is a good conversation-stopper in physics. People edge away from you in cocktail parties; friends never return phone calls. You just don't mess with Albert Einstein. So when I saw a press conference at the American Astronomical Society meeting this past January on faster-than-light phenomena in...

BBC News: Finland has become the first country in the world to make broadband a legal right for every citizen. From 1 July every Finn will have the right to access to a 1Mbps (megabit per second) broadband connection. Finland has vowed to connect everyone to a 100Mbps connection by 2015. In the UK the government has promised a minimum...

There are radical new patterns of power and response-ability emerging around the 21st century citizen. But we are also experiencing a strange kind of political impotence. We are powerful in new ways, yet often incapable of applying any kind of meaningful political force to the most crucial issues of our time ... I think there's a vital yet...

So people learned from the angels of God how to build bridges, and therefore, after fountains, the greatest blessing is to build a bridge and the greatest sin to interfere with one. - Ivo Andric Our first two topics in this 12 part series were Pattern Recognition and Environmental Scanning, both practices for enhancing the opportunity to create...
