Whitehead's dilemma: Specialization alone is an evolutionary dead-end...

In 1962, Buckminster Fuller delivered a prophetic lecture at Southern Illinois University on the future of education aimed at “solving [educational] problems by design competence instead of by political reform.” It was eventually published as Education Automation: Comprehensive Learning for Emergent Humanity — a prescient vision for online education decades before the web as we know it, and half a century before the golden age of MOOCs, with elements of TED and Pandora mixed in.

The deadline fast approaches to enter the $100,000 Fuller Challenge. 

Answer Buckminster Fuller's call: design to "make the world work for 100% of humanity, in the shortest possible time, through spontaneous cooperation, without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone."

Do you know anyone designing to make the world work for 100%? Send them our way!! Q&A sessions with BFI staff and review team members now open for registration in the lead-up to the April 11th proposal deadline.

Friends in NYC - Hope you can join me next Friday (March 7) for Cosmopoetics: A Symposium on (Post-) Modern Epistemology at NYU. I'll be giving a talk called Cosmopoiesis: The Art of Worldmaking, but you'll have to show up to see what it's about...

Think of the name Buckminster Fuller, and you may think of a few oddities of mid-twentieth-century design for living: the Dymaxion House, the Dymaxion Car, the geodesic dome.

Copernicus, Musk, and Branson make cameos on Juice News. Perhaps the universe is contracting after all...
