Program or Be Programmed: 10 Commands for a Digital Age 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.
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?

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.

[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.

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).
Contact Summit 2011: The Evolution Will Be Social | Contact Un-conference
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.
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. Summary 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. Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television
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).

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.
