Adaptive Path’s SF Studio Library: A Social and Thinking Space

Adaptive Path

Adaptive Path's San Francisco studio library was originally set up by Chiara Ogan, and when she left last year, she entrusted it to me. Among Chiara's many talents, she's a trained and experienced librarian, and she set up a complete library system about which she blogged in December of 2010 , when we were at our Brannan Street location. I'm not a trained librarian, but I am a compulsive classifier and organizer*, so I jumped at the chance to run our library.

Mayr’s lemma

Technology, Innovation and Social Action

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

As I have been repeatedly writing in this blog, I really believe that technology and innovation are now enabling us to address the most complex problems in science, business and society. What is more complex, - and more important, - than to consider how to best leverage technology and innovation to address the critical issues surrounding poverty and social justice? A recurring theme in this blog is the increasing importance of talent in the knowledge economy.

NOTE: Live-blogging. But it’s not a simple model because it’s a complex framework. We can look across regional and cultural patterns. As far back as Aristarchus, marginalia had ymbols to allow pointing to different scrolls in the Library of Alexandria. “Shouldn’t this be the mission of the 21st century library?” I’m at a workshop on annotation at Harvard. Philip Desenne is giving one of the keynotes. Getting things wrong.

stevenberlinjohnson.com: Can We Please Kill This Meme Now

Steven Berlin Johnson

Think about the library. Thanks to the connective nature of hypertext, and the blogospheres exploratory hunger for finding new stuff, the web is the greatest serendipity engine in the history of culture. It is far, far easier to sit down in front of your browser and stumble across something completely brilliant but surprising than it is walking through a library looking at the spines of books. It takes me thirty seconds to make all those connections by reading Jasons blog.

[avignon] President Sarkozy

David Weinberger

NOTE: Live-blogging. Never before have cultural protagonists — politicians, heads of gov’t — had to make so many efforts to come up with imaginative, new responses to the challenges that humans have never had to face before. Why talk about culture in such a crisis? Because culture is the bedrock, and the bedrock of our response. The French response to the crisis is to invest massively in culture and anything having to do with culture.

Literacies

Harold Jarche

Chris Hedges, in America the Illiterate wrote that the lack of print literacy is creating a society that is not able to reason or understand the complexities of our modern world. It can cope with complexity and has the intellectual tools to separate illusion from truth.

Skim and Plunge

Steven Berlin Johnson

But as it turned out, what he saw on those screens actually had very little to do with gaming culture today. But he couldn’t have imagined a culture where games like Spore or Grand Theft Auto -- both of which are deftly dissected in this volume -- are far more complex, open-ended and popular than many Hollywood blockbusters. Most of the information we interact with in our lives -- online or off -- lacks the profundity and complexity of a Great Book.

[berkman] Kate Crawford on mobiles and noise

David Weinberger

NOTE: Live-blogging. The first question the study asks is “youth culture and its imaginaries: how is youth culture represented in the media? Check Ethan's blog, which you should be reading anyway]. We’ve been overloaded since the library at alexandria and before. Second, we should recognize how quickly mobiles and social spaces have emerged, making it difficult to develop complex social norms.

WGBH/WCRB go the way of WNYC/WQXR

Doc Searls

The longest thread in the history of this blog belongs to Why WQXR is better off as a public radio station , which I posted on July 26, and still has comments this month. The post followed a complex deal by which the New York Times divested its legacy classical music station, WQXR — and by which the station’s format, call letters, record library and some of its personnel survived as a noncommercial outlet of WNYC , on a different channel with a weaker signal.

How do you achieve a change in the culture.

Think anew, Act anew: Scenario Planning

Dave Snowden

Some time ago I outlined the basic principles of managing a complex system and promised to use them to explore a range of management issues. Given the time since I first introduced this topic (I planned a couple of weeks, but its panned out as the best part of half a year) I'd suggest a quick read of the original post, which concluded with three necessary, although not necessarily sufficient conditions for any strategy based on complexity theory.
