    The network now decides who has the authoritative voice once reserved for professional journalists. Self-mastery of our own thinking is necessary to counter the effects of a networked world, where words are electrically extended and fragmented by social media. In the network era, populism is the first refuge of a scoundrel. A literate, engaged, and networked citizenry gives no such refuge.

    I use David Ronfeldt’s TIMN model (2009) to explain that we are shifting from a tri-form society, where markets dominate, to a quadriform society, where networks dominate. If we are indeed in an epochal transition, then the most important work is developing new models, metaphors , and understanding of what a network/social society should look like. Our dominant organizational models need to become network-centric and especially learning-centric.

    [Network] the world needs knowledge catalysts
    Many people live in this digital network society with computers at our fingertips but little idea of how they work. But computers and networks control our lives today. If you are an expert, you are not helping your human network get any smarter if you are not sharing. Our global human networks will get dumber. These networks of people might even vote for bombastic populists or support policies that will make all of us poorer or less free to pursue our goals.

    In hedging the future of work , Esko Kilpi describes three areas of work that need to be negotiated by knowledge workers in the digital network era. Flash Networks. These three areas loosely align with the triple operating system and the perpetual beta working model, two models I frequently use to describe how work is a constant dance between looser communities and networks (to get inspiration and ideas) and temporary, negotiated hierarchies to get work done.
