Power Shifts

Yes powershifts are visible all around you. From Push Economy production companies to Pull Economy co-creation and prosumers. From large Nation States to small (or large) independent self sustainable Communities in Cooperatives and Commons. From few big ones to many small ones in the Connection Economy of interconnected SME’s and One person companies (NL: ZZP’ers).

So the next transition is also visible: from many small and autonomous to flocks of many people, woven together and each participant contributing their unique skills and abilities to something bigger than the parts. Inter-dependents bonded by P2P Connectivity. Such groups, which I call Weavelets, are powerful and flexible and they do not need central command & control. They baffle the old elites and take away their power.

That is essentially what I have described in my lecture at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), Global Brain Institute (GBI),  on May 3 2013.  The ECCO / GBI seminar “Structure for Collective Learning Organizations and Connected Collaboration”, see:

* Link to the updated sheets you can download for looking while watching the video: http://www.slideshare.net/JaapvanTill/structure-for-collective-learning-organizations-version-5 

I am available to present this ongoing research, if you and your organization are curious what is at the core of these sudden powershifts.  Stephan Verveen and Sara Wedeman are also available to contribute.

Update May 27: Whoops, I made a mistake. In the Neural Network “Weavelet structure” graphs I did by accident reverse the structure of the orthogonal transform (and the inverse transform). The sensor input side should be like the following picture, which also fits very well with the Telescope Metaphor just before it in the lecture. The long distance (weak link) connections between people come first, with the filtering and correlation in the middle.

Update August 9, 2013

To show how weavelets can scale up (grow)  by doubling and adding input and output “far away” connectivity to more sensors and actuators, I add the following 3 sheets: weavelet growth modelJvt

The shape of a LENS becomes more and more visible when the Weavelet grows further.

    These powershifting impacts of mobile internet are real.

  3. I rarely create responses, however i ddid a few searching and wound upp here
    Power Shifts | The Connectivist. And I actually do
    have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright.
    Could it be just me or does it seem like some of these
    respponses come across like coming from brain dead people?
    😛 And, if you are writing att othuer online social sites, I’d like to follow everything new you have
    to post.Could you list of all of your shared pages like your
    linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  4. Everything is vedry open with a precise descriptionn off the challenges.
    It was definitely informative. Yoour site is very helpful.
    Thsnk you for sharing!

  5. By selecting the person themselves, they will know that they are making the right connection.
    Whatever your path just keep moving up towards happiness one step at a time.
    If you are new to EFT, try doing these phrases by simply tapping gently
    on top of your head (on your crown).
