That Sneaky Exponential
As digital networking brings scale and global reach to all aspects of our lives and activities, there will be many more ways that we'll see scale driven value shifts that threaten established business networking patterns. For example, health care networks may move from treatment transactions to collaborations around disease management. Risk management in the financial services sector may move to group-forming structures that facilitate management of "micro-risks". How will it impact your business and your industry?

I'd like to close with a speculative thought. As Francis Fukuyama argues in his book Trust, there is a strong correlation between the prosperity of national economies and social capital, which he defines culturally as the ease with which people in a particular culture can form new associations. There is a clear synergy between the sociability that Fukuyama discusses and the technology and tools that support GFNs-both are structural supports for association. As the scale of interaction grows more global via the Internet, isn't it possible that a combination of social capital and GFN capital will drive prosperity to those who recognize the value of network structures that support free and responsible association for common purposes?

Internet protocol suite - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In May 1974, Kahn and Cerf published a paper titled “A Protocol for Packet Network Intercommunication”[4] in which they described the protocol for sharing resources using packet switching. The paper described in detail the Transmission Control Program, which was a mixture of TCP and IP. The paper set the basis for how TCP/IP would develop.

interesting theory...

曾任麻省理工大学商学院教授的心理学家E. C. Nevis认为,相较于美国人的个人主义人格,中国人有强烈的集体主义人格。他推出了一个描述中国人需求结构的四层模型。在这个模型中,他认为“交流和集体归宿感”对于中国人是最重要的,因此放在需求模型的最基层,接下来才是生存需求层、安全健康层,以及最弱的自我实现层。可见,他认为中国人的“交流和关系”比“吃”还更为“刚需”。他还说,其实中国人的“自我实现”与西方人的内涵很不一样,主要是通过从事社会服务,也即“当官”得到大家认可而已。在Nevis对中国人的描述模型中,马斯洛模型中的自信层和自我超越层完全消失。这与陈俊的经验理论以及其他一些研究过中国文化的学者的观点颇为相似。其实,中国人聚餐,觥筹交错中交流和关系建立往往是主旋律,吃倒在其次了。

The personal (computer) is political | Nominet Trust
To be able to fully participate in our physical and digital communities requires a range of actions and understanding. The value of the technical skills of coding and programming and the creativity of making and designing digital products are well understood, but at the heart of our ambition to support young people’s digital making is understanding how digital technologies are made. This understanding can come about through the process of digital making, or of tinkering with existing digital products, but it is this understanding that is so important.

In this paper, Dr Aleks Krotoski explores the importance of such issues, looking at how an understanding of how digital tools are made can help us recognise how they afford, constrain and mediate our everyday actions.

Mooers' Law

An information retrieval system will tend not to be used whenever it is more painful and troublesome for a customer to have information than for him not to have it.
Where an information retrieval system tends not to be used, a more capable information retrieval system may tend to be used even less.

The Democratic Surround: Multimedia and American Liberalism from World War II to the Psychedelic Sixties by Fred Turner

Today we find ourselves surrounded by screens – on our iPhones, our tablets, our desktop computers. Little do we know that we are living out the multimedia dreams of several dozen Cold War social scientists and propagandists, a handful of Bauhaus artists, and the musician John Cage. Stanford professor Fred Turner tracks those dreams from World War II to the psychedelic sixties and lays bare the long-buried cultural roots of an American media revolution.

(CS/EE 144) The ideas behind the web
Social networks, the web, and the internet are an essential parts of our lives and we all depend on them every day, but do you really know what makes them work? This course studies the "big" ideas behind our networked lives. Things like, what do networks actually look like (and why do they all look the same)? How do search engines work? Why to memes spread the way they do? How does web advertising work? For all these questions and more, the course will provide a mixture of both mathematical analysis and hands-on labs.This course can be combined with CS/EE 145 and CS 141a or CS/EE 143 to satisfy the project requirement for CS undergraduate degree, but CS/EE 143 and CS 141a are not required prerequisites. The course assumes students are comfortable with graph theory, probability, and basic programming.

The Technium: You Are Not Late
The last 30 years has created a marvelous starting point, a solid platform to build truly great things. However the coolest stuff has not been invented yet — although this new greatness will not be more of the same-same that exists today. It will not be merely “better,” it will different, beyond, and other. But you knew that.

What you may not have realized is that today truly is a wide open frontier. It is the best time EVER in human history to begin.

You are not late.

amor mundi: An Open Letter To The Robot Cultists --
The digital revolution is a lie. Cyberspace isn't a spirit realm. It belches coal smoke. It is accessed on landfill-destined toxic devices made by wretched wage slaves. It abetted financial fraud and theft at every level of society around the world. Its "openness" and its "freedom" turned out to be targeted marketing harassment, panoptic surveillance, and zero comments.

Webstock '13: Tricia Wang - The Elastic Self: what millions of Chinese youth tell us about the future of online identities & on Vimeo
The internet is global, but the experience of it is not universal. China and the US are both online, but they are not experiencing the same internet. What is it like to grow up digitally connected under an authoritarian regime? The sudden availability of the internet combined with open-market capitalism over the last decade has created a new social space in China where a new self has emerged, an Elastic Self. What does this mean for the largest population of internet users in the world? And what does this mean for how identities are produced online at large?

中国须开放网络否则将落后于人 | 香港南华早报
万维网之父Tim Berners-Lee爵士在《南华早报》上发表评论,呼吁中国开放互联网。他说,中国在最新的万维网指数排名中排在第57位,中国必须解决两个主要问题,才能改善表现,在快速数字化的世界保持竞争力。首先,中国需要进一步行动,提供平价网络,让所有民众都能够上网。其次,中国必须解决侵犯隐私及网络自由问题。报告发现,中国网络审查机构广泛审查网络内容,而且并无真正意义上的保障措施,保护网络用户免受情报机构入侵。他称,中国网络监控和审查制度无孔不入,也令一些人士担心中国是否有能力快速提升价值链,保持竞争力。要实现这一转变,中国就必须开放网络,以提高创新和创造力。要实现“中国梦”,中国需要建设一个所有民众都能登入浏览的网络。这个网络将提供动力,提高创新和创造能力,以改善政治、社会和经济。中国必须逐步发展网络,让国人加入全球的万维网互动。
