Back in the early eighties when my father was chief editorial writer for The Economist, we wrote a future history on the first 40 years of the economic and social value multipliers of networks. Sweden was the one country to take it seriously with the employer's union translating a special imprint called The New Vikings (apologies I can't say that in Swedish).
Perhaps its not entirely coincidental, that it is only the Nordica region that yet leads the vitality of Beyond's human relationships organsiations and the wonderful value they can multiply, although there is a parallel across the Atlantic where only Canada seriously practices living systems and transparency as necessary conditions of achieving anything trustworthily human in this wonderul networking age of ours.
On a wee personal note, my first job was in something then called Computer Assisted Learning. With the benefit of 30 years of foresight, I can share with you: now would be the best of times to co-develop a 12 year old's curriculum on what they don't need to learn from the 20th century as well as how to start making Beyond's living system's constructs the soul agent of every network. email me to join a work-group on this permalink
