"Using a new methodology that measures how closely words' meanings are related within and between languages, an international team of researchers has revealed that for many universal concepts, the world's languages feature a common structure of semantic relatedness." Fantastic via +Peter Hatherley!
 
Recently released research data regarding the conceptual links behind language

#conceptualintelligence #semanticclusters #CISETechnology
We create words to label people, places, actions, thoughts, and more so we can express ourselves meaningfully to others. Do humans' shared cognitive abilities and dependence on languages naturally provide a universal means of organizing certain concepts? Or do environment and culture influence each language uniquely?

The Geography of Genius by Eric Weiner via PBS NewsHour
What kind of environment spawns genius? That’s the question Eric Weiner tackles in his latest book, “The Geography of Genius,” in which Weiner journeys around the world and through time, from Plato’s Athens to Leonardo da Vinci’s Florence, to find the secret ingredients behind some of the greatest minds in history, and what it means for America today. Economics correspondent Paul Solman reports.

Holacracy??? You just described what teamwork is. Just trying to make it

Since when we still lived in trees.

When and how did you discover this miracle?
