    [Technology] Transparency
    It’s not just my vocation, but it’s my avocation: I enjoy exploring cognition and technology. I also look at what’s happening with technology. Mostly I write about things related to technology, learning, and individual and organizational implications. So that’s it: I blog to facilitate my understanding, because cognitive science and technology is my passion. I believe that transparency is a good thing.

    Jon Husband’s principle of wirearchy states that organizations should be structured around “a dynamic flow of power and authority, based on information, trust, credibility, and a focus on results, enabled by interconnected technology and people”. In my last post I noted that many organizations today are nothing more than attractive prisons. The current organizational tyranny was a response to a linear, print-based world.

    I’m usually content with my (admittedly incomplete) understanding of the role humanity plays in the universe, and in particular, with the role that technology plays as that narrative builds. And lately that technology story is getting pretty damn interesting — I’d argue that our society’s creation of and reaction to digital technologies is pretty much the most important narrative in the world at present. Technology is having a crisis of self reflection.
