Thanks to digital technologies and networked activity, we’re living through a global transition that is redefining how culture and commerce operate. We’re presented with the opportunity to be active participants in this process, steering ourselves into new modes of civilization, verse being just passive spectators. But if we don’t understand the biases of the tools and mediums we’re using, we’ll risk being slaves instead of masters. This is not the first time this has happened, but it may be the most significant one so far. Every media revolution has given the people a sneak peek of the control panel of civilization, and a chance to view the world through a new lens. When humans developed language, we were able to pass on knowledge and experiences, and allow for progress. We could both listen and speak.

When we developed alphabets and literacy, we were able to create laws and accountability, and a new kind of authority. 1. We’re all familiar with this one. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. How Will We Collaborate if We Can’t Trust Each Other. A few years ago, I had a big snowcrash moment about the power of networks and the web, envisioning the amazing potential that could be unleashed if we could just build our networks and weave them all together. Fast forward 18 months or so, and I find myself embedded within overlapping networks of networks…. and yet I still don’t see the magic happening that had appeared so clearly in my mind. What’s the deal? I chuckle now looking back at my own starry-eyed naivete, as if it were enough to just be connected. I’m reminded of something Stowe Boyd said when I interviewed him for the Future of Facebook Project: There’s no natural reason that we’re all gonna come together and sing kumbaya just because we’re using the same social tools.

So, yeah. We’ve been through the binding phase over the past few years, which was all about getting linked. But now we’re moving into the collaboration phase, and there are some different requirements. And yet there is still fear. Are you gonna steal my idea?

Information du futur: trouver la réalité dans le code. Quel avenir pour l'information ? Le journaliste belge Roland Legrand imagine la transmission de l'actu en 2026, hyper-personnalisée pour les lecteurs et objet de curation pour ses différents transmetteurs. Notre site d’information existe depuis 15 ans désormais. En mai 1996, disposer d’une connexion internet 128kbit relevait de l’exception. Aujourd’hui, bénéficier d’un débit de 100 mégabits paraît tout à fait normal (en Belgique du moins). En 2026, la vitesse ne constituera plus un problème. Des sociétés comme Apple, par exemple, commercialiseront des habits “intelligents” et certains éléments électroniques vous seront même implantés directement dans le corps. Les claviers seront remplacés par les commandes vocales, les gestes et le tactile. Le futur n’est bien sûr pas qu’une histoire de gadgets plus ou moins sophistiqués. La personnalisation de l’information Certains articles viennent de The New York Times, d’autres du Wall Street Journal et de TechCrunch.

7 Values of a Next-Gen Agency. As some of you know, I’m in the midst of helping build a chaordic living systems enterprise. Our core group is currently having fascinating conversations about mission, values and the kind of culture we want to cultivate amongst ourselves, which in turn will inform what we model and inspire in the world. As the days go by, we’re becoming more comfortable opening up to each other and really unpacking our core beliefs. This is helping us find alignment and coherence, which must happen before we construct our shared vision and lay our foundation. I’ve been thinking a lot about open-source philosophy, creative work, and a passion-driven lifestyle.

How do these 7 values strike you? Like this: Like Loading... Joël de Rosnay - The World Knowledge Dialogue.

A Movement to Unite All Good Will Movements. [Update] This article was published over in July of 2009 and it speaks directly to the revolutionary spirit that began sweeping the world near the end of 2010. The article outlines the overarching planetary condition and specifies a big picture schematic of how we might actually address national and global predicaments before it is too late for the sane and honorable people of the world. A CALL FOR A COALITION OF THE JUST and a CALL TO ACTION Index of Headings: After clicking on the desired heading—-click on any image to return to index Paul Hawken describes it as the worlds biggest movement and that is the world wide emergence of at least 130,000 organizations dedicated to political, social and environmental justice. He calls it the “planets immune response” to the malignant ideologies which presently dominate the affairs of human society on planet earth.

The movements are testimony to Raymond Williams’ idea of emergent culture [1a] as an intrinsic regenerative dynamic of culture. 1. 2. 3.

Generation Y

The World Question Center 2010. I received this year's Edge Question while in Damascus, shuttling messages from Jerusalem aimed at probing possibilities for peace. And I got to thinking about how my thinking on world peace and transnational violence has been shaped by the Internet, and how the advent of the Internet has framed my view of human history and destiny. I'm aware that I'm living on the cusp of perhaps the third great tipping point in human history, and that this is an awesome and lucky thing to experience. First, I imagine myself with a small band moving out of Africa into the Fertile Crescent around 60,000 years ago or so, when humans mastered language and began to conquer the globe. More than half a million years ago, the Neanderthal and human branches of evolution began to split from our common ancestor Homo erectus (or perhaps Homo ergaster).

Neanderthal, like erectus before, spread out of Africa and across Eurasia. Here are two snippets that illustrate this duality: The Collapse of Cultures. HalfPastHuman. Contact Summit 2011: The Evolution Will Be Social | Contact Un-conference. Michel Serres - Les nouvelles technologies : révolution culturelle et cognitive. Vidéo sous-titrée : conférence Michel Serres, lancement du Programme Paris Nouveaux Mondes. What the Contact Conference Was Really About. Photo: grant potter I am very grateful to have been able to take part in organizing the Contact Conference, an event that pitched itself as a working festival of innovation, a social technologies exhibitor space, and a celebration of the potential of a network culture.

And it was definitely all those things, so mission accomplished there. The energy in the room was great, the recipients of the three $1oK Innovation Awards worthy, and the four projects conceived and launched at the event exciting. (more details on those things below in Douglas Rushkoff’s letter to participants) But that’s really only a part of the story. And, as the Hopi elders put it: We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. There is no magic pill, no savior, and no wishing a better world into existence. Contact was about making contact. I’m ready to take the leap with you and go beyond any of our expectations. . - v Thanks for making October 20 a great success.

Upgrading Democracy - Stay in Contact Douglas Rushkoff Like this: Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television. Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television (1978) is a book by Jerry Mander, who argues that many of the problems with television are inherent in the medium and technology itself, and thus cannot be reformed. Mander spent 15 years in the advertising business, including five as president and partner of Freeman, Mander & Gossage, San Francisco, a nationally-known advertising agency.[1] Summary[edit] Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television argues that the technology of television is not a neutral or benign instrument or tool.

The author argues that in varied technologies and institutions such as militaries, automobiles, nuclear power plants, mass production, and advertising, the basic form of the institution and the technology determines its interaction with the world, the way it will be used, the kind of people who use it, and to what ends. The four arguments are: What binds the four arguments together is that they deal with aspects of television that are not reformable.[2]

Internet History

Zeitgeist 2010. Une brève histoire de l'avenir de Jacques Attali. Dans son dernier livre, Une brève histoire de l’avenir, à la fois fascinant et dérangeant, Jacques Attali déroule l’histoire des soixante prochaines années du monde. Dans une brillante synthèse, historique, politique, sociale, économique, écologique, scientifique et technique, il reprend certains grands thèmes de ses livres précédents, et notamment Les trois mondes, Lignes d’horizon, Fraternités ou L’homme nomade, pour nous plonger dans les racines du passé afin de discerner les branches porteuses de notre avenir. Le premier tiers du livre constitue une des plus étonnantes histoires « co-évolutive » des civilisations humaines jamais écrite : de l’ancienne Egypte aux dynasties chinoises, en passant par le Bassin méditerranéen, le Moyen Age européen, l’Inde ou le Moyen-Orient, il met en perspective les trois ordres qui conditionnent le développement des sociétés humaines : l’ordre rituel (religieux), l’ordre impérial (militaire) et l’ordre marchand (contrôle de l’économie).

Home - Don Tapscott. L'évolution du Web. Imagining the Internet. SAMPLE: Here's a selection of quote excerpts from the thousands of predictions in the 2012 report about expectations for the teens-to-20s age group - Generation AO - and the human impact of people's uses of the Internet by 2020: “There is no doubt that brains are being rewired.”

—danah boyd, Microsoft Research “We will see significant, positive, and even astounding improvements in the cognitive abilities of young people.” —Dave Rogers, Yahoo Kids “Work will be dominated by fast-moving, geographically diverse, free-agent teams of workers connected via socially mediating technologies.” “The replacement of memorization by analysis will be the biggest boon to society since the coming of mass literacy.”

“When these young people remake our educational institutions…a greater amount of information will be used to produce positive outcomes for society.” “Teens find distraction…[we will need] silence zones, time-out zones, meditation classes without mobile, lessons in ignoring people.” Why Gigaom thinks it’s time to reinvent the internet. It’s hard to think of something that has changed the world more in the last 25 years than the transformation of the internet into the most widespread form of communication and expression the world has ever seen. Unfortunately, if it is to remain as open and inexpensive a means of communication as we’ve known it, some things will have to change.

One of the founding principles of Gigaom is that connectivity is the lifeblood of the tech industry, and over the years we’ve tried to shape our coverage as much around that topic as possible. It has become increasingly clear to us that the internet is under siege from for-profit business interests, aging and outdated laws and policies, and the ever-growing demands that we place on its infrastructure. We have five pieces to this special report: We hope you enjoy our report and that it sparks thought and discussion. Banner image adapted from Hong Li/Thinkstock. 21st Century Fluency Project.
