Interview de Joël de Rosnay et David Gems pour le site Atlantico - 31 juillet 2013 L'immortalité et les vers de terre ont un rapport, celui d'avoir été étudiés par une équipe de chercheurs britanniques. Ces derniers ont découvert que le processus de vieillissement des cellules du corps pouvait être ralenti, voire stoppé. Le cardiologue américain Sam Parnia estime quant à lui qu'il est possible de faire revenir d’entre les morts certains patients, en oxygénant leurs tissus. De quoi alimenter le mythe de la vie éternelle. Atlantico : Où en est-on de la lutte contre le vieillissement ?

Program or Be Programmed: 10 Commands for a Digital Age 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? How Will We Collaborate if We Can’t Trust Each Other
Mots-clés :économie, monnaie Je sors un nouveau livre :"De l'innovation monétaire aux monnaies de l'innovation" Il s'agit de montrer comment marche les monnaies, de voir comment en créer de nouvelles (légalement) de façon de plus en plus simple grâce aux plates-formes web et téléphone qui viennent d'apparaitre et de lancer 4 défis pour créer de nouvelles monnaies qui permettent des choses nouvelles que ne font pas encore les monnaies. En fait, de façon tout à fait étonnante, la monnaie lorsqu'elle est bien comprise, est un formidable outil pour favoriser des comportements dans les sociétés et favoriser l'échange dans certains domaines (sur un territoire, entre une communauté, dans un secteur spécifique comme la culture, l'éducation ou l'environnement...).

Une brève histoire de l'avenir de Jacques Attali 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).

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.

I am in South America this week, giving keynotes at the sCRM-CEM y Redes Sociales conference in Bogota and the Congreso Internacional de Retail in Lima. Latin America is a fascinating and exciting region, both culturally and economically. However the region, while highly visible in North America, does not tend to get much attention from the rest of the world. The dramatic economic rise of China is a dominant theme of this century, with India likely to gain ground on China in coming decades due to demographic shifts. This is drawing pointed attention from business executives around the world to Asia as a growth region. However to a certain degree the rise of China and India, and that of the rest of Asia, are distinct stories.

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).

We are in a whole new world of platforms, a post-PC era, which I’d more aptly describe as the always/everywhere era, finally, and that means a whole new set of opportunities.
