IntegralJournal: MindfulWorldBank.org And now to the concept of MindfulWorldBank.org. Essentially, we need to expand capitalism to everyone -- not just the top 5% or so. MindfulWorldBank would own high-quality assets and depositors would own the bank. Rather than paying a landlord, residents would deposit funds in an account at MindfulWorldBank;... - http://integraljournal.typepad.com/integra...
It should be noted that this concept is related to the work of recent Nobel recipients Elinor Ostrom and Oliver Williamson. It addresses the commons in a comprehensive way as well as providing a new organizational structure that is designed to bring out the best in all those who live, work, and invest in the system. - starwalker from Bookmarklet
Beyond Realtime Search: The Dawning Of Ambient Streams - http://www.techcrunch.com/2009...
"A very useful metaphor is that humanity is constructing its own synthetic sixth sense. An ambient sense that perceives the context of your activity and augments your reality with related information and experiences. Increasingly, we will be sensing the world with this sixth sense and that will change the way we collectively experience the world. Going back to the point made earlier, the watershed event is when we will be experiencing this “ambient sense” without being in a retrieval mode (i.e. not when we go to the computer or our mobile device to find information but rather as a product of our activity, location, and profile in context with the events and information available to us in a wired world)." - starwalker from Bookmarklet

Worldchanging: Bright Green: The Fire this Time: Copenhagen and the War for the Future - http://www.worldchanging.com/archive...
To be young and aware is to suspect that, in the end, the debate about climate action isn’t about substance, but about rich old men trying to squeeze every last dollar, euro, and yen from their investments in outdated industries. It is to agree with the environmentalist Paul Hawken that we have an economy that steals the future, sells it in the present, and calls it GDP. It is to begin to see your elders as cannibals with golf clubs. - starwalker from Bookmarklet
Edge: BEYOND REDUCTIONISM: REINVENTING THE SACRED By Stuart A. Kauffman - http://www.edge.org/3rd_cul...
Two fine authors, Richard Dawkins and Daniel Dennett, have written recent books, The God Delusion and Breaking the Spell arguing against religion. Their views are based on contemporary science. But the largest convictions of contemporary science remain based on reductionism. I would like to begin a discussion about the first glimmerings of a new scientific world view — beyond reductionism to emergence and radical creativity in the biosphere and human world. This emerging view finds a natural scientific place for value and ethics, and places us as co-creators of the enormous web of emerging complexity that is the evolving biosphere and human economics and culture. - starwalker from Bookmarklet

Resilience Thinking | P&P - http://www.peopleandplace.net/feature...
The paradox of optimization In theory, an efficient economy optimally produces the things people want and value. However, the paradox of optimization is that optimization is often applied too narrowly.(...) Efficiency itself is not a bad thing, but when we apply efficiency principles to only a narrow range of values and a particular set of interests, we inevitably create unwanted outcomes. The history of ecology, economics, and sociology is full of examples such as the sea otters, showing that the systems around us, the systems we are part of, are much more complex than we often assume. - starwalker from Bookmarklet
CHAMELEON is an interactive art installation driven by emotional expression of participants, illustrating how we infect each other with our emotions. “Chameleon” is built in a progression of prototypes, with the final version using mind reading technology (senses facial emotion expression.) video and emotional algorithms to assess, respond and provoke the emotional states of the audience. - starwalker
Resilience Alliance - Key concepts - http://www.resalliance.org/564...
"Resilience is... the ability to absorb disturbances, to be changed and then to re-organise and still have the same identity (retain the same basic structure and ways of functioning). It includes the ability to learn from the disturbance. A resilient system is forgiving of external shocks. As resilience declines the magnitude of a shock from which it cannot recover gets smaller and smaller. Resilience shifts attention from purely growth and efficiency to needed recovery and flexibility." - starwalker from Bookmarklet
Australian Humanities Review: Deleuze and the Internet by Ian Buchanan - http://www.australianhumanitie...
The fourth principle, that the rhizome pertains to an infinitely modifiable map with multiple entrances and exits that must be produced, is I would hazard the most important. But its implications are neither obvious nor fully explained by Deleuze and Guattari, although it is clear that it has the highest priority in their view. In effect, what it means is this: the rhizome is not manifest in things, but rather a latent potential that has to be realised by experimentation. This can linked to the sixth principle, namely that the rhizome isn't amenable to any structural or generative model because basically what Deleuze and Guattari are saying is that you can't either prescribe the Internet into existence or expect to find it naturally occurring. It has to be invented. The rhizome is the subterranean pathway connecting all our actions, invisibly determining our decision to do this rather than that. Insofar as we remain unaware of its existence and indeed its operation we do not have full... more... - starwalker from Bookmarklet
Communications & Society: Enter the Rhizome: Non-duality - http://idst-2215.blogspot.com/2009...
the rhizome has captured my imagination as a marvelous description of the structures that I have been calling networks. I have been writing about networks for the past two years, and basically, I have been contrasting them to hierarchies. The gist of my argument has been that, in response to modern technology in general and information technology in particular, humankind is undergoing a shift from hierarchy as the dominant mode for structuring human reality to networks as the dominant mode. This shift is as deep and as extensive a shift as humankind has ever undergone, and it will change everything. - starwalker

Worldchanging: Bright Green: The Revolution Will Not Be Hand-Made: A Quick Sunday-Morning Rant - http://www.worldchanging.com/archive...
We're redesigning our civilization. We need to be people who are tackling the most important systems around us, employing tools that can change them quickly at scale. We need to get comfortable talking policy, working in parallel collaborations, thinking in systems, understanding infrastructures and markets and flows, and using money to power comprehensive transformations. The opposite of democracy is depoliticization. The idea that "regular" people can't do this is insultingly elitist, psychologically isolating and inherently depoliticizing. Of course we can. Even those of us who lack formal education in these fields are entirely capable of contributing in important ways to big efforts -- if we learn to think of ourselves as connected and collaborating, and start to pay more attention. - starwalker from Bookmarklet
