From Cluetrain to Resilience


Is there a Wiki Way to sustainability? What can the cultures of the Net teach us about addressing the issues of nine billion people on one planet?

Without any photos of polar bears, I’ll explore some big environmental/evolutionary topics: entropy, generativity, and resilience.

Then I’ll ask how familiar tech concepts (agile development, serial entrepreneurship, modularity, communities of practice) relate to ideas on social-ecological resilience.
