It's a simple comparison, graphing the candidates' word use by tokens and types, as follows: To count tokens, you simply add +1 to the count each time the candidate utters a word. To count types, you add +1 to the count each time the candidate utters a new word. Just what is a type?

Today we’ll start off with The Blood Typing Game, one my favourites! What happens if you get a blood transfusion with the wrong blood type? Even though a patient’s own blood type is the first choice for blood transfusions, it’s not always available at the blood bank. Try to save some patients’ lives and learn about human blood types.

It has to do with the nature of thinking. In it, this quote struck a nerve: “Gorbis identifies unique human skills” The list of them intrigued me: Sensemaking. Social and emotional intelligence. Novel and adaptive thinking. Moral and ethical reasoning.

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.

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.

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.

stevenberlinjohnson.com « Jane Jacobs And Atlantic Yards | Main | Dean Disappears From Google -- Already An Exile At 9 Days Old » I was a little busy last Wednesday, and so I missed Nicholas Carrs excellent piece on the Benkler/Calacanis smackdown -- a phrase I never thought Id type -- which is, in my opinion, much more interesting than the Rose/Calacanis smackdown. I think that what Calacanis is getting at is that the reason "social media" has existed outside the price system up until now is simply that a market hadnt yet emerged for this new kind of labor. We werent yet able to assign a value - in monetary terms - to what these workers were doing; we werent even able to draw distinctions between what they were contributing. We couldnt see the talent for the crowd. Now, though, the amateurs are being sorted according to their individual skills, calculations as to the monetary value of those skills are starting to be made, and a market appears to be taking shape. As buyers and sellers come into this market, well see whether large-scale social media can in fact survive outside the price system, or whether its fated to be subsumed into professional media. Which is mightier - Benklers dream or Calacaniss wallet? By the way, I read Wealth of Networks earlier this year, and thoroughly enjoyed it; Ive been meaning to synthesize some of my thoughts about the argument and post them here, but havent got around to it yet.
