Flow rules: knowledge about the flow of ideas can accelerate the pace of innovation
Alex Pentland says data, sensors and smartphones are opening the door to what he calls social physics.

Recall, the middle-name of 'TED' is 'entertainment.' Never saw any real science on Oxt & morality except for the dopey 'entertainment' TED/TEDx offers.

Personally, I ignore Ted because it is mostly pedestrian hubris. TED is 'worth spreading' and so is manure...

If a team/group/squad/platoon is immoral or evil to begin, the esprit de corps from Oxt will  make it more evil? <gasp!>
