Interesting catch

By +Gregory Esau on types of Communities that can help organisations to change for the better.

The only nit-pick I'd make is the short termism as I believe such communities can be long term initiatives. Mileage may vary
 
Communities pf Aspirations
Communities of Practice

The two are inter-related, or could be.
Together or separately, such communities can be powerful engines of growth, at the personal level, and the communal level.

I personally find this both interesting and instructive, as this is a stage three strategy for growing the cross-business, cross-industry, cross pollinated with local governments ecosystem that can "design, develop, and deliver" the future of urban auto mobility.

Yes, yes, exactly so, +Peter Feltham !

While I find these sorts of articles useful for gauging how the 'thought leaders' of management are thinking, it's also interesting how much they miss in terms of what is happening just beyond the borders of those thought leader circles.

Indeed we do, and it's never been a better time to be doing what we do!

Handbags at dawn

This one is the opening salvo in a fight between 20th and 21st Century thinking. It will run and run. Europe will hurt itself against the forces building up from the machine intelligence guys... given how far they embedded into the way things work already...
Deep learning, the latest in AI technology, could clash with new regulations from the European Union, the world's single largest online market.

"this kind of machine learning, in the right hands, and with the outputs as part of intellectual commons, would play a good part in the future of work, with humans and machines working in harmony rather than in competition." That's one angle I'm pursuing in education.

Don't get your bowels in an uproar

Chortling about this, er, news item (?) Besides which, I hate football

Then again it's a very surreal kind of day

The Empire strikes back

More on the DAO hack and the actions taken by the white hats:
Ethereum developers hack the hacker, securing 7.2 million eth, planing to secure the rest, potentially avoiding a hardfork, sending price skyrocketing.

Some joined-up thinking

There's some nice lateral thinking here by the wacky Swiss: let's solve the real problem (in bite-sized chunks) rather than the more usual big bang solution. Bravo.
A few quick fixes is all these buses to make their appointed rounds

I used the Geneva buses a lot when I lived there. This one is an example of what I term a bus and a half, meaning it has a trailer attached with a turntable arrangement. They even have a bus and a half and a third featuring two turntables. I asked my friend JB about them and he took me on a route that runs them through the old town which features incredibly tight turns in narrow streets. With some major steering wheel twirling they get through. Amazing.

You can't do Security with a shake & bake approach

As the security professionals always tell us, you have to design it in from the start. Here's an example which happens to highlight BMW. However the same critique can be made for many other manufacturer's efforts. The vehicle industry can, and must, do a lot better on this.

Security researcher Benjamin Kunz Mejri has found two vulnerabilities in the BMW ConnectedDrive web portal/ web application.

*Joined-up thinking for trucks"

nice initiative by Sweden. I like this.
Working to rid its independent transport sector of fossil fuels by 2030, Sweden has opened up its first electrified highway, which will serve as a testbed for a possible wider deployment in the coming years. ​​

Has it all been worth it?

In a word: NO. The EU Referendum campaigning has been of very low quality, and specifically designed to confuse the people rather than to inform them. A scandal.

The esteemed +Chris Ogle has some thoughts on the matter which are well worth reading.
 
Final reflections on the EU referendum
So today is the day! People go to the polls with high expectations of what might happen over the coming days and weeks. Many believe that today they will have the chance to put an 'X' in the leave box and that if there is a stampede of people with similar t...

On new Organisational types and Governance

As is so often the case, some parts of society are developing faster than the Powers That Be's abilities to understand them. In our own world that includes the ability for the tax and governance authorities to get their heads around the implications of properly networked organisations: the old command and control hierarchical governance rules just don't apply. This causes heat and light and bureacratic confusion and, frankly, can be a royal pain in the rear end.

This blog post from our friends at +Nesta UK takes a tour around some examples. Recommended.
How can organisations draw upon traditional models of co-operativism and ownership for the 21st century?

Story
Tagline
Software Architect, Researcher, SocialMedia person. Ethics matter to me.
Introduction
Officially I'm retired, or was, until that Rob Pye called me back to help with Ethos 4 years ago. Especially when I found out about their TeamArmy initiative which raises money to support (and mentor) ex-Services folk, including the Wounded Warriors. Better yet, as an ex-racer and driving enthusiast, I discovered that Ethos had supported the much esteemed team at MissionMotorsports led by Major Jim Cameron.

Other interests include travel, different cultures (I've lived abroad for most of my life all over Europe and North America), fine foods and wines, and music, especially live music of many types.

I also help to organise meetings at the House of Commons with GlobalNet 21. Use it or lose it!
