Don Beck 'The 7th Code' ByDon Beck, October 2006 Spiral Dynamics co-developer Don Beck is occasionally prone to post what effectively amount to teach-ins or mini-lectures on the Spiral Dynamics e-lists. This is an extract from one such posting in October 2006.You can e-mail Don or visit the Spiral Dynamics Integral web site to find out more about his work. Clearly, the contours of YELLOW (G-T/Systemic/Authentic) have not been etched in tin much less set in concrete. But, with all due respect to other developmental models, this highlights the uniqueness of the Gravesian/SDi perspective in that it does address, with great specificity, how each new vMEMETIC code actually appears; what are the Life Conditions that spark and drive it; and how Life Problems ‘G’ will awaken the capacities (T) to deal with new realities, new challenges, and new threats as well. .This, then, becomes the context for what G-T/YELLOW will be, at least within the Gravesian/SDi and 2nd Tier concept and language.

These ideas might help. Thesis Bucket | research | prototypes | concepts. Introduction The goal of this weeks presentation was to articulate three possible concepts. Those concepts needed to be considered enough to enable us to choose one of the to develop further and take into next semester. In my research I came to the conclusion that there are two different directions to build a legacy – First, actively collecting (e.g. writing a diary) and passively collecting (sorting things that are already online). Based on that as well as considering the “Design Principles”, “Pain Points” and the “Identity Spaces” I developed 3 concepts.

For me, these concepts are a starting point and there will be more in the next couple of days. Click image above to see the next picture First concept “The Key Concept” In this concept the center of the interaction is a key. Second concept “The Family Urn” Influence by the idea around social objects and this related reading I put the family in the center of that concept. Next steps and suggestions I got: 1. Artisan Of The Human Spirit: About the Author. TONY ANDERS was born in Washington Court House, a small town in south-central Ohio, where the city teetered in an economic balance between agriculture and a small handful of large blue collar companies. The rest was reminiscent of a Norman Rockwell painting depicting happy normal lives. Through his early upbringing and high school, Tony’s life was molded by the simple lifestyle only a small town can offer. Imagination, friendships, and cars “cruising the strip” were the pleasures of youth instead of electronics, malls, and the less-than-personal activities that may be found in the small town’s larger counterparts.

Little league, sock hops, and county fairs punctuated his youth to contribute to his current affinity for channeling simple messages from familiar surroundings and the wisdom of “regular folks”. Tony currently is found regularly on Blogger (as Artisanofthehumanspirit) Philosophical Disquisitions: April 2010. This post is part of my discussion of Chapter 5 of Gregory Dawes's book Theism and Explanation that began here and, much to everyone's surprise, continued here. Dawes's basic goal is to show that there are no good in principle objections to theistic explanations. They can be genuine intentional explanations. It just so happens that they aren't very good explanations. Chapter 5 of Dawes's book deals with some of the in principle objections. Since the argument is that divine explanations are types of intentional explanation, the proponent must posit a specific divine intention as the explanation of a given state of affairs.

The theological sceptic thinks this is untenable: we cannot know the mind of God. Dawes responded to Sober by claiming that we can put some constraints on theistic explanations. Dawes thinks this helps to constrain potential theistic explanations. This is potentially devastating for the theist since it seems obvious to many that the world is imbued with sub-optimality. Books | Critical Terrain | image object environment. In honor of the passing of the great Larry Sultan, all the images in this post are from the book "Evidence" by Mike Mandel and Larry Sultan. This was the one that showed me the possibilities of the photobook. This post is late in the game, but I hope it can be part of the networked blog discussion about the future of photography books started by Andy Adams of Flak Photo and Miki Johnson of liveBooks’ Resolve blog. I have been away from blogging and many other things normal people do thanks to an intense few months in graduate school.

I want to weigh in on this subject, which, having been a photobook editor at a trade publishing house for ten years, is dear to my heart. I haven’t read much of what the other bloggers have had to say so far, so as not to get buffeted by the winds of the discussion as it is in the moment. From the book "Evidence" by Mike Mandel and Larry Sultan. But what about the “established” photographer? Another point to reemphasize from the HHS! Model I: The swarm. Meet Generation C: The Connected Customer. InShare976 Marketers, educators, parents, it seems that almost anyone in the Generation X or Boomer demographic is scratching their heads trying to figure out Generation Y aka the Millennial. After all, it’s the first generation to seemingly possess digital prowess as part of their DNA. And, it’s the first generation to receive both a birth certificate and a social profile or presence upon delivery into this world.

A study published in 2011 by security company AVG and Research Now surveyed 2,200 mothers from around the world and found that 81% of children under the age of two currently have some type of digital footprint. 92% of U.S. children have an online presence created for them by the time they are 2 years old. In many cases, a digital presence is born before the child, with sonograms (23%) actively published and shared on social networks and blogs.

With every day that passes, Gen Y becomes far more important to the economy than we can realize. How well do you know Gen Y? 1. 2. 3. 4. Jonathan Drori | Profile on E2.0 as Grassroots Tinkering | bbr [backed by research] I have just re-read an interesting paper by one of Information Systems’ greatest, Claudio Ciborra, on Strategic Information Systems (SIS). While the paper is almost 20 years old its main idea turns out to be intriguing and is still very relevant today, in particular for Enterprise 2.0. The paper criticises the common approach to strategising in information systems that postulates the use of models, best practice and top down agenda setting. We all would agree that this is how strategy making is taught in Universities and described in textbooks. It sounds like common sense.

But here is the catch. Based on that observation Ciborra advocates for a tinkering instead of a thinking approach. How is this relevant to Enterprise 2.0? Yes, but as I have argued many times, E2.0 technologies are open and largely undefined.In order to be used productively they need to be experimented with and usage practices need to emerge bottom up. Sounds still familiar, right? Like this: Like Loading... Opinion: Life as a Target. Attacks on my work aimed at undermining climate change science have turned me into a public figure. I have come to embrace that role. Michael Mann testifying before Congress, with National Academies of Science Chair Ralph Cicerone (July 27, 2006)NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCESAs a climate scientist, I have seen my integrity perniciously attacked. Politicians have demanded I be fired from my job because of my work demonstrating the reality and threat of human-caused climate change. I’ve been subjected to congressional investigations by congressman in the pay of the fossil fuel industry and was the target of what The Washington Post referred to as a “witch hunt” by Virginia’s reactionary Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli.

I have even received a number of anonymous death threats. My plight is dramatic, but unfortunately, it is not unique; climate scientists are regularly the subject of such attacks. Michael E. Boundary Studies: Science-Policy Interactions and Boundary Organizations | Decision Center for a Desert City. Research Activities From its inception, DCDC was designed to implement, consistently evaluate, and re-conceptualize boundary organization theory for bridging science and policy for sustainability. Our goals are to understand and enhance the linkages between scientific knowledge production and public-policy deliberation and decision making under uncertainty. Also, this cross-cutting area seeks to improve basic understanding of the operation of complex water governance systems and to inform transitions toward sustainability.

In the past year, DCDC researchers continued to advance basic science of the co-production of knowledge and action for environmental decision making under uncertainty. Also in the past year, DCDC PI Dave White examined the role of framing as a type of boundary work in the development of environmental decision support systems (White in review, Society & Natural Resources).

In the past year, we have advanced scientific understanding of science-policy interactions by: Robert Simons - Faculty. Charles M.

The Prescience Step of the (Thomas) Kuhn Cycle. Click a node to read about it. Also called the pre-paradigm stage, Prescience is the pre-step to the main Kuhn Cycle. In Prescience there is not yet a model of understanding (the field's paradigm) mature enough to solve the field's main problems. The model may be close. It may be promising and thus be attracting plenty of followers. But it's not yet a real science that works. Because it doesn't quite work it's a prescience. This is where environmentalism is today. For awhile the field of environmentalism felt it was not in its Prescience stage, but Normal Science. In the 1970s it looked like the problem was well on its way to solution.

Many believe the most important result of the conference was the precedent it set for international cooperation in addressing environmental degradation. Fast forward to today. What went wrong? What went wrong? How can environmentalism advance to the Normal Science step, where it will be capable of solving its central problem? Phil of Science - Problems w/ Kuhn's Paradigm V... Sun, May 25, 2008 - 11:54 AM Some Problems with Kuhn’s Paradigm View Famously, Thomas Kuhn has explicated a very influential perspective on the philosophy of science, in which new scientific ‘paradigms’ displace previous and incompatible paradigms. While Kuhn’s elaboration of his theory can be viewed as largely descriptive, in the sense that it draws much of its force from merely ‘describing’ what we might consider to be examples within the history of ‘science’, Kuhn makes it quite clear across his writings that this descriptive sense of the history of science is not all that his view is intended to express.

He would like to convince us that, more than just describing the way things have tended to happen in science, his paradigm view of science is actually the way science is, in itself. To do this we must start by looking at Kuhn’s (admittedly non-exhaustive) list of scientific “values”. And, here we get into my major criticism of Kuhn. The Secret Language of Leadership. A reader in France wrote to me yesterday: “It is refreshing to see some organisations do actually 'get it' - that employees are people rather than things, or in my own organisation 'posts' to be filled or swopped around at imperial will. The 'saying / doing' gap is just so great that sometimes I despair and wonder if it is really me that has got it wrong - your blogs are a reassuring boost.” What do you do, when you are talking sense and everyone around you is thinking, speaking and acting in ways that are utterly counter-productive?

A century hence, when historians come to write the history of the current age (assuming our species survives so long), they will, I believe, be puzzled as to why so many people managed—and so many more people allowed themselves to be managed—in ways that were known to be unproductive, crimped the spirits of those doing the work, and frustrated those for whom the work was being done. Why, they will wonder, did this continue for so long on such a wide scale? Browse By Person: Hearn, Gregory. Group by: Item Type | Date Number of items: 107.

Report. Beth's Blog: Nonprofits and Social Media. Soren Gordhamer,Wisdom 2.0 Summit Organizer I am filled with gratitude to Soren Gordhamer for his vision of bringing together an amazing group of people who work in the area of mindfulness and technology for Wisdom 2.0, a three-day event aimed at addressing an compelling issue: "The question for most of us is not if we will use the technologies of our age, from cell phones to social media, the question is how can we do so with mindfulness, meaning, and wisdom? " Soren is the author of the book, "Wisdom 2.0" and writes about mindfulness and technology use for Huffington Post and on Mashable. If you want to explore the intersection of technology use and mindfulness, follow Soren's work.

Technology stress and information overload have been around for decades. I've been looking for ways to reduce techno stress since I first started working in the nonprofit technology field in 1992.
