"Success is increasingly a result from skillful participation: it is about how we are present and how we communicate. Through new interaction-technologies and ubiquitous connectivity, we have totally new opportunities changing the way we work together.
Our present system of industrial management creates systemic inefficiency in knowledge-based work. The approach that managers do the coordination for the workers is just too slow and too costly in the low transaction cost environments we live in today. The enablers have turned into a constraint. The existence of high transaction costs outside of firms lead to the emergence of the firm as we know it, and management as we know it."

Now it's "too big to criticize"? Not a chance.

//Under Barack Obama, prosecution of white collar crime has hit a two-decade low, according to Justice Department records. In the years since the financial crisis of 2008, some top Obama officials suggested that while Wall Street firms may have engaged in excessive risk taking, their individual executives' actions may not have constituted criminal activity.

Warren told IBT she was “going to blow the BS whistle” on that line of argument.

“In the financial crisis of 2008, it was fraud right down at the heart of that crisis, and yet not one major bank executive was even charged, much less prosecuted and taken to trial — not one,” she said. Noting that the federal governmentprosecuted hundreds of Wall Street executives after the Savings and Loan scandal a few decades ago, she said, “You’re telling me that something changed between the 1980s, when more than a thousand people got prosecuted in the Savings and Loan crisis, but by 2008, a far bigger financial crisis involving far bigger and bolder frauds, that no one was legally responsible for that? That’s just not possible.”

Warren, a law professor by training, laid out the case for prosecuting financial executives. 

“Under the law, if a corporation violates the law, then of necessity one or more of the employees at a corporation must also have violated the law — that’s the way the law works,” she said. “It’s not possible that the corporation broke the law, but there was no individual who broke the law. And yet look at what happened. These giant banks have signed off on huge settlements and in some cases have admitted to wrongdoing, and yet not a single executive is held responsible.”//
The senator defended Bernie Sanders from criticism by Goldman Sachs — a bank that has delivered big money to Hillary Clinton.

We Don't Automate Jobs, We Automated Tasks

Sooner good thoughts in this piece from an interview with Jerry Kaplan, author of, Humans Need Not Apply: A Guide to Wealth and Work in the Age of Artificial Intelligence.

I thought this was a useful frame:
“If you have enough data, you can solve tasks that used to require intelligence,” he said. And just because machines can perform tasks that humans use intelligence for, that doesn’t mean machines have to think in order to do so.

+jean m russell inspired me to not only eyeball complex adaptive systems like organizations by the metaphors they share about themselves, but also to assess people by their radiance on the spectrum of mechanical/engineered vs organic metaphors. +Monica Anderson explains http://videos.syntience.com/other/sta-dpt.html

Expensive sweet bean confections and more than $148,000 in cash could have lured the current Japanese economic minister to take a bribe.
