Was St. Paul a proto-blogger? Did the Desert Abbas and Ammas invent "friending" and "tweeting?" Did medieval manuscript creators invent hypertexting?

This presentation by Dr. Elizabeth Drescher, Director of the Center for Anglican Learning & Leadership and Assistant Professor of Christian Spiritualities at Church Divinity School of the Pacific, introduces changes in communication, community, and leadership influenced by new social media technologies. The presentation links current social media practices to long-held Christian traditions and provokes questions about how the Church can be proactively using social media for community-building, education, and formation.

  16. 16. + 16 2. An Emergence Created by Swarms, not Queens  “In simplest terms, [networks] solve problems by drawing on masses of relatively stupid elements, rather than a single, intelligent ‘executive branch.’ … They get their smarts from below. In more technical language, they are complex adaptive systems that display emergent behavior. In these systems, agents residing on one scale start producing the behavior that lies one scale above them: ants create colonies; urbanites create neighborhoods; simple pattern-recognition software learns how to recommend new books. The movement from low-level rules to higher-level sophistication is what we call emergence.” ~ Steven Johnson, Emergence: The Connected Lives of Ants, Brains, Cities, and Software (2001) Tweet if UJesus © Elizabeth Drescher, PhD, 2009.
