Schermafbeelding 2018-07-16 om 16.27.30

The 9th International Conference on Complex Systems is expected to be an important event where the real top network dynamics scientist will gather and show their latest far sighted display of mind power, which will influence and have impact on nearly everything in our countries, civil society and businesses.

The program is available on the following site, where you can register to attend and meet the top ladies, gentlemen and students: http://www.necsi.edu/events/iccs2018/

I hope to be able to present the lecture about DEEP ORGANIZATION that I did present twice in Berlin, see: https://theconnectivist.wordpress.com/2018/04/23/the-way-ahead-new-power-synthecracy/ and see: https://theconnectivist.wordpress.com/2018/07/12/my-flashtalk-in-berlin-about-ai-and-deep-organizations/  

Synthecracy Weavelet

The abstract I submitted for this new short lecture is the following :

Abstract of lecture Jaap van Till ICCS

 

 

 

 

Yes, I expect my talk and idea’s to have a lot of impact on how people will interconnect, cooperate and create value. And sure, they will together be able to face and cope with Complexity, instead of having to destroy it and simplify it like old power managers and silly dictators do.

Update 1: My Short pres Jaap van Till ICCS Late News (<===sheets you can download) was accepted by the Program Committee, and is scheduled for Wednesday after lunch:

Update 2. My abstract as shown in the program:

Improved IN-house Wi-Fi by using Plastic Optic Fibre (POF)

POF voor WI-Fi

Problem: The Router/hub you have connected to the Internet cable (ADSL/VDSL/ Cablemodem/ Optic Fiber FttH cable) has Wi-Fi but it reaches only a couple of rooms. The walls decreases the broadband you thought you would get.

You can buy Wi-Fi boosters or Wi-Fi extenders on the powercables, but that will blast your neighbours Wi-Fi out of the ether, and to is very unsafe because its radiation can be monitored outside too.

A much better solution is to employ Plastic Optic Fiber dual cable and slide it through the 230 AC yellow lastic pipes in your home and fix a Wi-Fi picocell on the end of that, with wireless enough power in/out to cover the room.

These cables and do it yourself installation boxes are for sale at http://ls2connect.nl/ in Harderwijk, The Netherlands. For the EUROPEAN MARKET.

Dear readers and viewers. this is one of my shortest blogs but one with a high impact I guess.Dirk-Helbing_beiratssitzung-03-2017-Kopie

Democracy is under attack and should be Redefined

PAUL_MASON_colour_Credit_Antonio_Olmos_SMALL

Paul Mason, credit: Antonio Olmas

When representatives and elections (one of the cornerstones of Democracy -rule by the People-) can be bought and the electorate can be mass-manipulated person-by-person by big data marketing systems, the Civil Society is in trouble.

Our communities can and should counteract by enforcing a number of New Rules:

  1. Give every citizen the right to control his/her own “Digital Double”, collected by companies or public offices in order to ‘profile’ that citizen or sell that info to others who will.
  2. See for further ground rules, the excellent lecture given by Paul Mason: https://medium.com/mosquito-ridge/against-algorithmic-control-d1d748b63fb0
  3. Further Ground Rules to be determined and enforced.

Sure, Crime Fighters and Secret Services will resent these Ground Rules. But how can they claim to work “to protect the community” if they “target and attack” their own citizens at the same time and virtually lock us all up?

Who are Behind the 1% Stealth Takeover of the USA and UK

1200px-James_Buchanan_by_Atlas_network

The Russians? Sure, they love to help spreading diversion now and then, but no. It is a well oiled (sic!) lobby of seriously wealthy billionaires and media moguls, who are paranoid to loose any of their wealth. I pity these paranoid and greedy sick old men behind fences. Owning billions and still unhappy and terrified of losing a dime to the poor, working and young. They fear online democracy.

Read about them in the book which will be published on June 5 : “Democracy in Chains” by historian Nancy MacLean.

If you want to read one article this year that is important, this is it.

Be careful, those guys are ruthless. They will not hesitate a second to kill thousands or even millions in order to protect their wealth. If we let them…..

People in Power are getting Nervous

fear2

and :

mechanisms to rule , when politicians and the elites run out of ideas. No thanks, we can take care of ourselves…

fear 1

And furthermore: Command and Control stiffle Innovation and creativity that should feed value creation and wealth. Slaves do not renew and invent.

We the creative class do, and… it creates a Civil Society with #NewPower.

Hat tip to: @FutureICT on Twitter, who showed this first.
