Great time this month with Kevin Kelly dipping in his mind reading New Rules for the New Economy. Much learning to be had as with most reading undertaken with a curious mindset. Some may be put off when something is not hot-off-the-shelf and they miss out. Even though New Rules for the New Economy is not new there are gems to be mined. Are you a life-long learner? Is growth a passion? Does Sri Ramakrishna speak of you when he said, “Do not seek illumination unless you seek it as a man whose hair is on fire seeks a pond.”?
Speaking of our ‘culture technology’ Kevin quotes Laurie Anderson; “Technology is the campfire around which we gather.” It is not the technology that is king, it is that technology enhances our communication. Technology enhances our story telling.
Rule 9 Relationship Tech – “Networks haul relations the way rivers once hauled freight.” How will you amplify your relations?
Welcome to the new economy.
