Doc Searls

It’s time to move past the toxic and destructive business called adtech : surveillance-based advertising. Adtech is the Agent Smith of digital advertising: a rogue programmatic approach to digital advertising that rationalizes tracking people like marked animals.

metamodernity

Harold Jarche

To an older culture, a newer one often looks amoral, as morality guides older cultures. To a newer culture, older cultures appear to be primitive, lacking complexity. But each culture has its pros and cons.

The Paradox of Connection

John Hagel

We are becoming more connected with each other and less connected with each other at the same time. The Big Shift that we're experiencing on a global scale is full of paradox – this is just one of many, but a particularly important paradox to acknowledge and address.

Whence the Virtue of Open

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The word 'whence' means " from what place, source, or cause", and that is the question I would like to address with respect to the virtue of 'open'. The question is raised in the context of Heather Morrison's recent comments on The Dialectic of Open.

Dear @WashingtonPost

Doc Searls

This is wrong: Because I’m not blocking ads. I’m blocking tracking. In fact I welcome ads—especially ones that sponsor The Washington Post and other fine publishers. I’ll also be glad to subscribe to the Post once it stops trying to track me off their site. Same goes for The New York Times , The Wall Street Journal and other papers I value and to which I no longer subscribe.

the challenge of the network era

Harold Jarche

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The New York Times today came out with a list of "the 25 works of art made after 1970 that define the contemporary age, by anyone, anywhere." What struck me as most significant was how little any of the works meant to me. Most of them I had never heard of.

To have a conversation, you have to be comfortable being human - acknowledging you don't have all the answers, being eager to learn from someone else and to build new ideas together. You can only have a conversation if you're not afraid of being wrong.
