Fascinating: Cosmic Dust

"⚡️ To most of us, dust is something to be washed off. In space, dust comes from comets and exploding stars. It can form rings, drive weather and even form the seeds of new planets. In this week’s #10Things, dust in the wind at Mars—and beyond."

On Lifelong Learning & Bouncing Back

"Great question @lerntrixx 👍

A desire to improve awakes curiosity. Questions form. Information gets discovered. Action is taken. Fail & Succeed. Reflection. Share. Apply insights. Feedback. Cycle repeats. Towards Mastery.

How does #lifelonglearning play out in your daily life?"+Paul Simbeck-Hampson

On Robots & Climate Change

A robot diving under Antarctica to map the seafloor with sonar, and to measure ice's thickness. See via the video below.

"(...) What Maksym wants to understand is how ice thickens and thins in polar regions. In the arctic, for instance, old ice is disappearing, and ice in general is becoming more seasonal. “So understanding how the processes that govern the thickness of ice change as the arctic changes helps us understand how the arctic is going to respond to climate change,” says Maksym.

That means putting Seabed in danger, sure, but also means taking human divers out of danger. The robot may get stuck under the ice from time to time, but the data it’s gathering is vital to science’s understanding of Earth’s most brutal environments (...)."

I wonder when robots and humans would work together to explore under Antartica. In the meantime, I enjoy discovering the explorations of the 'Under The Pole' crew in and under Antartica. Fascinating. You may enjoy, too:

On Going Offline

"This is #4 in a new series of short films on my key topics and memes: technology versus humanity, the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence and the future of business, culture and society.

This film explains why sometimes we really need to disconnect to reconnect:)" — Gerd Leonhard

How do you embrace life and work with(out) screens and devices?

One can still decide what to notice or not, when to engage or not while using the smartphone, any devices and apps, right? Deactivating the notifications of each app is doable so that one can decide when to check out an inbox, a social network or even digital contents. Still it is about habits building and iterating. This is not easy to do when some habits become almost natural over time, and can become even unhealthy.

On Communityship

"I happen to believe the future of all leadership and management is more community-centric. Our organizations will become more agile, and adaptable networks with different types of roles and commitments will emerge, all of which are more self-selected. The changing nature of how we organize to do work means that how we lead and manage has to change in some fundamental ways." — Rachel Happe

"Sure we need leadership, especially to establish communityship in a new organization and to help sustain it in an established organization. What we don’t need is this obsession with leadership—of the individual singled out from the rest, as if he or she is the end all and be all of the organization. So here’s to less leadership, or perhaps better put, just enough leadership, embedded in communityship." — Henry Mintzberg

"Education Outrage: learning starts with curiosity (and do does AI)"

"Learning starts with curiosity. We seek explanations and use those explanations until we get confused again.

(...) To put this another way: if you are not confused nor curious you will not learn. This applies to every form of education and every form of AI." — Roger Shank

https://educationoutrage.blogspot.com/2018/07/learning-starts-with-curiosity-and-do.html

How does one do so?

"Curiosity is a muscle.

Sometimes, you really need to go off the grid." — Jessica Bellamy https://youtu.be/IN2BoCJ2gjM
