Social as a Weapon of Class Destruction

Dan Pontefract

The aforementioned line is recognized as the first known use of the term ‘weapons of mass destruction’ But today, in 2013, I want to discuss a new weapon — a weapon of class destruction — and that weapon is social. Let’s first define what I mean by ‘class’ I’d like the term class in my social as a weapon of class destruction thesis to denote two things for purposes of this piece: societal & organizational status.

How to be a world-class educational technologist

Clark Quinn

On LinkedIn, I was asked: “I would like to ask sir, how can I be a world-class educational technologist?” I think aiming to be a world-class educational technologist is a noble goal. The post How to be a world-class educational technologist appeared first on Learnlets. ” And I thought that was a very interesting question. (Of Of course, my immediate response should be “how should I know? ;) But I thought I’d do a bit better.

The next middle class

Harold Jarche

Jaron Lanier in You Are Not a Gadget , wrote: The people who are perhaps the most screwed by open culture are the middle classes of intellectual and cultural creation. They used to live off the trickle down effects of the old system, and like the middle class at large, they are precious. Will there be a middle class in the networked economy, or only heads & tails? The trickle-down effects, that Lanier mentions, no longer share enough wealth for a viable middle class.

[aspen] Robert Putnam on the growing class gap

David Weinberger

We’ve also become a more class-segregated society, even as we’ve become less segregated by race and religion. Class segregation is increasing by residence, education, organization, and marriage; i.e., it’s less likely you’ll marry outside of your class. There’s also been a fraying of family and social bonds within the working class. He will show us robust patterns in multiple data sources, focusing only on class differences.

Mind Hacks

A study just published in the British Journal of Psychiatry has found that only 23% of the population are without symptoms of personality disorder. If you’re not familiar with it, personality disorder is a somewhat controversial diagnosis which essentially classifies people who we might otherwise called ‘extremely difficult’ – but to the point where they cause themselves significant life problems.

My Organizational Behavior Class: The Current Iteration

Bob Sutton

The first time I taught an introductory organizational behavior class was in 1980 or 1981.  I had no teaching experience (except for one guest lecture I had given to a large undergrad class -- it was terrible; harried and dull). Yet that didn't stop the the Michigan Business School from giving me the chance to teach the class to some 60 students.   I have taught various versions of the class perhaps 35 times by now, and in some ways it remains the same.

Groups vs Networks: The Class Struggle Continues

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

A group, in other words, is like a school, a school of thought or a school of fish or a class, a class of entity, a class of animals, a class in a genus and a species. A class act is kind of a group. Or to flip that around classes in schools, properly so called, the things that we all grew up in are groups because groups are classes in schools. Can we even think of classes without at the same time thinking about the attributes of groups?

Vanity Fair has a great article that charts the very early days of LSD. Before the drug became a symbol of hippy psychedelia, it was used by a select group of psychiatrists to facilitate 'LSD psychotherapy' and became popular among the Hollywood set of the 1950s. To understand why LSD had such a grip on the American psychiatrists who had access to it, it's useful to know some background about how psychiatry pictured the human mind in the mid-20th century.
