Exploring Business Types and Business Models

John Hagel

But I’ve also written a lot about business types/roles, including a popular Harvard Business Review article almost 20 years ago. Many of you have approached me to ask, so what’s the difference between a business model and a business type? And, if there is a difference, what business models should each business type adopt? And, not to keep you in suspense, there is a difference between business models and business types as I use them. OK, I’ve created some confusion.

Novel and adaptive thinking. Moral and ethical reasoning.

no male and female brain types

Mind Hacks

It makes sense to talk about there being different male and female types of genitals. Although there may not be categorical types, a follow up analysis showed that it is possible to classify the brains used in the Joel paper as belonging to a man or a women at somewhere between 69%-77% accuracy. What would it mean for there to be a “male brain” or a “female brain”? Human genitals are mostly easy to categorise just by sight as either male or female.

Typekit Takes Great Type to the Masses

Adaptive Path

Not only because we believe that type is crucial to design, brand and the communication of our work, but because it could not have happened to better people.

Types of Blog Discussions

Tony Karrer

I've been involved with several different groups of people who are having different kinds of discussions that happen among bloggers. The most common models of blog discussions seem to have turned into a few patterns: Organic Blog Discussions - someone posts something interesting, lots of bloggers post on the topic, distributed discussion ensues. Blog Tag Memes - Someone posts a question and "Tags" five people to give their response. See Five Things Meme as an example.

Touch Typing - Cursive Writing - Why?

Tony Karrer

I'm not sure if it's only our school district, but 4th graders (9 year olds) spend considerable time learning cursive writing and are not taught touch typing. This is especially troubling because students certainly are expected to write their assignments on a computer. Oh, that is unless the teacher wants them to write it in cursive just to help them learn how to write in cursive.

Types of Knowledge and Connective Knowledge

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Historically, we have had two types of knowledge: First, 'qualitative' knowledge. These two types of knowledge account for most of what we know about things that there are out there in the world. These two types of knowledge combine the best of human capacities: our ability to perceive, to sense the world, and our ability to calculate, to think about the world. There are different types of meaning, said some. And there are different types of knowing.
