Autrans 2004 (2e partie) : Thierry Gaudin, les enjeux de la société cognitive

En mettant en perspective les questions de bien communs publics, de coopération et d’appropriation sociale, il a proposé quelques thèmes de réflexion qui devraient nous accompagner longtemps : celui de la société de la reconnaissance (plutôt que de la connaissance), celui de la place des “communs” et de la propriété intellectuelle et celui des “crises” passées et à venir de la société de la connaissance.Ce compte rendu fait suite à celui que nous avons consacré à Christian Huitema, également intervenant aux rencontres 2004 d’Autrans.

“The greatest value in understanding the future comes from spotting the major cultural, demographic, societal, and economic shifts early and translating them in to viable business strategies,” says Tom. Thomas continually pushes the envelope of understanding as part of the celebrity speaking circuit by creating fascinating images and understandings of the world to come. He has been fortunate enough to headline events along with some of today’s most recognizable figures: Tom Peters, Nobel Peace Prize winner Mohammad Yunus; former CEO of General Electric, Jack Welch; former New York City Mayor Rudy Giulliani; Former President of Colombia, Andrés Pastrana; Prime Minister of Spain, Felipe González Márquez; Nobel Prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz; Saudi Prince Turki Al-Faisal; and former World Bank President James Wolfensohn. – The personal blog of Futurist Thomas Frey.

The personal blog of Futurist Thomas Frey » Blog Archive » 12 Laws of the Future. 12 Laws of the Future For several decades now I have been contemplating our relationship with the future. Many of my colleagues think of me as that crazy guy who assigns human attributes to this thing we call the future. On occasion you can hear me uttering phrases like, “I know it’s going to be a great day because the future is clearly happy with me today.” Or, “no, that’s not a good idea because the future is probably going to push it off a cliff.” At one point I even tried to convince my wife that the future wanted me to buy a new car, but she wasn’t buying it.
