The paradox of identical twins and what it reveals about the psychology of identity and celebrity in our culturebuff.ly/1KaUrFx

The world compared us constantly. It was easy; we had a measuring stick right next to us. Who was prettier, stronger, smarter, nicer, funnier? Naturally, I wanted to be — but not at the expense of my twin. Could I just be pretty, strong, smart, nice, funny? No. Unbidden, the first thing people did was enumerate our differences. We were seen in reference to each other, and never on our own term

In essence, Christensen’s point was that businesses that fail are often not the feckless bumblers they’re made out to be.  Rather that by diligently following the precepts of an incomplete model, they fall prey to assumptions that do not apply.  In other words, he was helping managers recognize shifts in the marketplace and to make better judgments about how to respond.


so.. the incompleteness.. is assuming marketplace... ness..
Today, as Moisés Naím points out in The End of Power, we see a great many disruptions today in politics, religion, and military affairs. At first glance these may seem to have little to do with disruptive business models, but if we look closer we find that many of the same forces are at work: small groups, loosely connected and united by a shared purpose can challenge even the most powerful among us.
In the past, bureaucratic institutions played a crucial coordinating role.  It was through their vast control of assets that we were able to mobilize resources on a massive scale.  Large institutions dominated because they could do what others could not. Yet now it is not control of resources that is important, but access to them.
Digital technology enables relatively small actors to synchronize their actions through networks.  That, in a nutshell, is how disruption happens.  It is also why we see disruption happening with increasing frequency, all around us.  Power, as Naím puts it, has becomeeasier to get, but harder to use or keep.

Original Tweet: https://twitter.com/pkageyama/status/623348293767143424

The kinds of places that millennials want to live share a lot of the same characteristics with urban centers—they’re looking for amenities like walkability and public transit. But according to the study, it’s more about relationships and having the time to enjoy those relationships, which doesn’t necessarily mean working long hours to pay the rent in a big city.

Indeed, in 2011 researchers showed that for the particular model analyzed in the original 2009 study, explosive transitions only happen if the network is finite. While networks such as the Internet have at most about a billion nodes, phase transitions are most commonly associated with materials, which are intricate lattices of so many molecules (approximately 1023 or more) that the systems are effectively infinite. Once extended to a truly infinite system, explosive percolations appear to lose some of their boom.
[..]
in the explosive models, the network grows, but the growth of the large cluster is suppressed. This allows many large but disconnected clusters to grow, until the system hits the critical threshold where adding just one or two extra links triggers an instantaneous switch to über-connectivity. All the large clusters combine at once in a single violent merger.

just describing point of inflection.. no?.. all depends on how far we zoom out and how little we impose bias et al

[..]
D’Souza explained. “If you prevent cascades at all costs, you might make a lot of profit, but eventually a cascade is going to happen, and it will be so massive it [could] wipe out your entire profit.”

imagine where we'd be if the world didn't revolve around profit ness

[..]
Phase transitions have fascinated physicists and mathematicians alike for decades, so why has this explosive behavior been found only now? D’Souza thinks it’s because the breakthrough required the merging of ideas from several fields, most notably Achlioptas’ idea to blend algorithms and statistical physics, thereby creating an exciting new modeling phenomenon. “It really is a new paradigm of percolation,” Ziff said.

or a let loose paradigm... aka: natural.. no?

Smart words from @natematias on the future of Reddit, and online community more broadly: http://t.co/4mxBrScGSt

Original Tweet: https://twitter.com/EthanZ/status/624324800463290368
Reddit’s effort to curb its dark side without betraying its ideals becomes an emblematic drama of the Internet today. 
Ultimately, the lesson of Reddit may not be how to fix the Internet’s problems but to show the limits of what technology and design can do.
“These problems go deeper–they’re rooted in the wider problems of racism, sexism and hate that we have in our society,” Matias says. “And the idea that we could make systems by design that prevents us from being the society we are when we interact online seems hopelessly utopian.”
don't actually show the limits of tech... show the limits of tech within the systemic problems we have..

What I mean by that is Lions are usually seen as scary, intimidating, ferocious beast that we don't want to go near or even get close to. Lions are a simbol of the "scary people" of this world. The drug addicts/dealers, the pimps, prostitutes and johns, the murders, the different religions, etc! Now kissing is a sign of affection, a sign of love, we need to go out and love these lions!

Real life is an informal sport, not a formal one. The rules are endlessly modifiable and you must do your share to create them. There are in the end no winners or losers--we all wind up in the same place. Getting along with others is far more important than beating them. What matters in the end is how you play the game, how much fun you have along the way, and how much joy you give to others. Live life like a sandlot ball game. And, please, let your child go out to play--with other kids, while you stay home or do something else that you would like to do. In play, no matter how loving your relationship, your child is better off without you. Click below for more on what children learn in sandlot games.
