On the Brink of a Networked Society

In On The Brink of a Networked Society we get to know about the past, present and future of connectivity with a mix of key persons of influence like David Rowan (chief editor of Wired UK), Caterina Fake, (founder of Flickr), Eric Wahlforss (co-founder of Soundcloud), Ola Ahlvarsson (Ceo Keynote media), Elisabet Gretarsdottir (Marketing Director Eve Online), Robin Teigland (Professor School of Economics), Robert Faludi (Author Building wireless senior networks) and David Weinberger (co-auteur Cluetrain Manifesto)



Each of the interviewees discusses the emerging opportunities being enabled by social technology as we enter the Networked Society. Concepts such as borderless opportunities and creativity, new open business models, and today's 'dumb society' are brought up and discussed.

In the networked society people, knowledge, devices, and information are networked for the growth of society, life and business. Everyday we are seeing unexpected results. I would like you to take an advice: So Buckle up! it is going to be an interesting ride.

On the Brink of a Networked Society

Some interesting thoughts, some reminiscent of science fiction stories I have read in the past, in particular, and if I remember correctly (it was a long time ago) Greg Bear's Eon http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eon_(novel). As in many things being fully networked is a two edged sword. Besides the big brother implications that I think we already live within to a certain degree (the latest spate of media coverage on banks closing peoples' bank accounts out of the blue for example) I think we may need to start considering what is important in our realities. By this I mean if 57% of people are talking more online to each other instead of by phone or face to face and if this increases then this may not be such a good thing. The positive aspects are great but it's the negative ones that are a worry. The visionary view often fails to account for that side of things, instead taking to the optimistic view. Increasing obesity due to screen time, social inadequacy and more than likely some other aspects are creeping dangers not apparent enough yet to be generally perceived as a danger to everyday lives. It is overwhelming and the amount of information available now with the pace of change is difficult for our slow human brains to take in. Being creatures which learn by repetition doesn't make it any easier. As the internet world expands so does the cyber crime aspect see http://www.bcs.org/content/conWebDoc/42738 and http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-15533786. So, whilst it is exciting, interesting and the benefits I look forward to, I worry about our near future generations. On the other hand, does it matter if we change to become something less familiar to now?

Networked Society 'On the Brink'

Hi Andre, It's the potential of a connected world to create a new economic paradigm which inspired my colleague to develop his paper on people-centered economics. What if some businesses did things differently?
