Hybrid futures Knowmads and the Notion state

Just before 13:00 Geneva time, physicists guided two beams of protons moving at 3.5 TeV into collision points around the machine's 27 km ring. Moments later, cheers erupted from the control rooms of the machine's four main experiments, as shrapnel from the collisions flooded into the detectors.” Nature" Going live: “How is the LHC performing?” As I am writing the last lines of this post I am simultaneously listening to the amazing live webcast of the most formidable experiment in human history, the collision of 7TV beams at Cern LHC, a project which outcome may very well revolutionize our understanding of the basic laws of physics.

Knowmads in Society 3.0

In the pre-industrial age, nomads were people that moved with their livelihood (usually animal herding) instead of settling at a single location. Industrialization forced the settlement of many nomadic peoples… …but, something new is emerging in the 21st century: Knowmads. A knowmad is what I term a nomadic knowledge worker –that is, a creative, imaginative, and innovative person who can work with almost anybody, anytime, and anywhere. Industrial society is giving way to knowledge and innovation work. The coffee shop has become the workplace of choice for many knowmads. The remixing of places and social relationships is also impacting education. Who are these knowmads in Society 3.0? (To find out, click on the picture) Are you a knowmad? How Mongolian Herders Are Transforming Nomadic Pastoralism. Mongolia is the country of endless plains and eternal blue skies.

How Mongolian Herders Are Transforming Nomadic Pastoralism

Eighty percent of the land area is covered by grassland, giving home to about 35 million horses, cattle, sheep, goats, and camels. Half of the country’s population of 2.7 million depends on livestock production, which contributes more than 20 percent of the country’s GDP.1 More than these numbers can tell, nomadic pastoralism is a way of life. For centuries, herders have roamed the grasslands “following our animals,” as the herders’ adage goes, building, packing, and rebuilding their traditional gers, or tents, to make their living from nature’s bounty.

And, yet, this ancient lifestyle is under threat. A decade ago, herders first observed the impacts of climate change with the increase in severe weather events like storms, droughts, and extremely harsh winters, known as zud. However, increased vulnerability is not only caused by the impacts of climate change. Ronnie Vernooy References. This Video About Mind-Blowing Brain Theories Might Just Blow Your Mind.

Manifesto: The 21st Century Will Be Defined By Games

In a bold manifesto we’re proud to debut here on Kotaku, game designer Eric Zimmerman states that this century will be defined by games.ore Below is Zimmerman’s manifesto, which will also appear in the upcoming book The Gameful World from MIT press. We invite you to read it, to think about it and even to annotate it. Zimmerman’s manifesto is followed by an exploration of the ideas behind it, in an essay by author and professor Heather Chaplin. In the days to come, we’ll be expanding the discussion even further with perspectives from other gamers and game-thinkers. Manifesto for a Ludic Century by Eric Zimmerman Games are ancient. Like making music, telling stories, and creating images, playing games is part of what it means to be human. Digital technology has given games a new relevance.
