Subversive thoughts


Published on

Some thoughts I have shared over the years on my blog at

Published in: Business, Education, Technology
  • Getting people to think in terms of networks, not institutions or documents, is a great challenge and a major obstacle in much of my work. The mental shift is difficult for people who are not networked professionally or personally.

  • 'Courses are artifacts of a time when information was scarce and connections were few'. Amen to this. We could say the same about the document format. The world, the context for your topic of research or work is changing so fast and there so many sources of information on it that the best strategy is to select the right nodes in this network of information to be able to intercept what is meaningfull for your work or research. Conversations will hold the synthesis. Documents or traditional courses have a too rigid structure to fullfill our information need in this complex world.
