Unfortunately I'm not a programmer nor an interace engineer...:-(

But as a nerd, reader and info-scavenger I'm very interested in this project. I read about it in your book and think it's very, very exciting, so I can't wait until the beta-version will be available. Is there already some more info/details about the product? And if there's any other way to get involved...

Good luck on the hard work!

Intriguing service...I'm not quite the fit for your openings, but would love to be a beta tester!

How are you functioning as a change agent in your organization? Are you stuck and working straight by the book in the old culture? Are you radically making the shift and functioning straight down the middle of your picture of the ideal, new culture? Or have you found some way to do the dance of transformational leadership that discerns the most helpful work in each situation - able to be bi-cultural and function well enough in the existing system to succeed and build trust while also creating enough new and adaptive changes to move into a new way of working together?

A great movement is upon the Earth, and we are all finding our way home. Spirit cannot be denied, and the present global systems that seek to keep us separate, desperate, ignorant and in fear are crumbling before our eyes. This time is one of releasing these qualities that keep us distracted in the world of apparent forms. Going to the center of All-That-Is, this is the cosmic moment to re-establish a strength of heart that keeps us connected to all of Life in the eternal Now.

The young man filled out his form and sat down with the seven other applicants in the waiting area. After a few minutes, the young man stood up, crossed the room to the door of the inner office, and walked right in. Naturally the other applicants perked up, wondering what was going on. They muttered among themselves that they hadn't heard any summons yet. They assumed that the young man who went into the office made a mistake and would be disqualified.

When I find myself getting sanctimonious about privacy policies, I remember that I came into the world socially, privacy violated and violating - I was born of another's body, stark naked, through her very privates. With that visual in mind, I find my outrage and idealism about the sanctity of privacy getting pretty infantile. I get realistic about privacy and people: All the people, all the time, cannot be made to do the right thing. Most of the people, most of the time, however, will. With people, that's the deal.

As you consider the five building blocks of a more efficient payroll model, remember that progress is not defined by your ability to push all countries into a single system, single vendor, or single model. Progress happens when you can articulate your strategy and build a business case that makes some part of your strategy actionable.

Such a ledger of loss is both starkly overwhelming and woefully insufficient to achieving anything but a partial sense of the past decade. But it does offer a damning indictment.

just f*cking precious that. At least you all got out before he removed the tighty whiteys. What a perv...I don't think stippers can be truly appreciated without lots of alcohol.

I use a debit card for the sole reason that if I rack up 10 transactions per month (not PIN transactions) I get 3% interest on up to $30k. That is one of the best interest rates in the country for that amount of deposits. I make my 10 transactions and then put it away until the next month starts.

I read Where Good Ideas Come From last year and loved it. I just stumbled across this reward-for-innovation model and wondered if you were aware of it:

https://www.innocentive.com

It seemed like a market-individual model to me at first but it also manages to crowd source the problem and get more responses by taking advantage of the fluid network of the Internet. Where would you stick this in your quadrant system? Does it show a grasp of how innovation works? Do you think this kind of model would increase the rate of innovation or not? I'd be interested to hear your ideas.

Looks like you're getting a lot of spam comments Stephen.

A constant conversation I have with some, by no means all, of my European colleagues is to argue to them: don’t apply rules to the Government of Israel that you would never dream of applying to your own country. In any of our nations, if there were people firing rockets, committing acts of terrorism and living next door to us, our public opinion would go crazy. And any political leader who took the line that we shouldn’t get too excited about it, wouldn’t last long as a political leader. This is a democracy.

I don't know how the weather is where you are, but here, it's gray and rainy. I woke up twice in the middle of the night last night because the rain on the roof was so loud. I got caught in the rain a little while ago, when I was making off with two chairs from my mother's apartment, it's raining right now as I type and I assume I'll still be listening to rain drops when I nod off to sleep tonight.

You note that Open Source folks are not so hot on user interface issues. I guess you care.

Jef Raskin invented the Macintosh and wrote "The Humane Interface" which develops the ideas that the Mac was intended to embody. See that title at my site to get his summary of the rules and principles from the book: http://nitpicker.pbwiki.com/ to see if you want the longer form of the book. Wikipedia for the title points to it as well.

Legally speaking, PublishAmerica might not have broken any laws yet. So, they're still in business. They can even advertise right here on my page (I've seen them but I haven't figured out how to stop them and now that I wrote a story about them, they'll probably show up more. I'm sorry.) Please don't use them.

My Books

  • Steven Johnson: How We Got to Now: Six Innovations That Made the Modern World

    Steven Johnson: How We Got to Now: Six Innovations That Made the Modern World
    A history of innovation accompanied by a 6-part TV series on PBS and the BBC, this was the first of my books to crack the top 5 on the NY Times bestseller list. Appropriately for a book that celebrates diverse networks, this was the most collaborative of any of my books. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • Steven Johnson: Future Perfect: The Case For Progress In A Networked Age

    Steven Johnson: Future Perfect: The Case For Progress In A Networked Age
    My first book-length attempt to organize my writings about emergence and networks into something resembling a political philosophy, which I called Peer Progressivism. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • : Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation

    Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation
    An exploration of environments that lead to breakthrough innovation, in science, technology, business, and the arts. I conceived it as the closing book in a trilogy on innovative thinking, after Ghost Map and Invention. But in a way, it completes an investigation that runs through all the books, and laid the groundwork for How We Got To Now. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • : The Invention of Air

    The Invention of Air
    The story of the British radical chemist Joseph Priestley, who ended up having a Zelig-like role in the American Revolution. My version of a founding fathers book, and a reminder that most of the Enlightenment was driven by open source ideals. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • : The Ghost Map

    The Ghost Map
    The story of a terrifying outbreak of cholera in 1854 London 1854 that ended up changing the world. An idea book wrapped around a page-turner. I like to think of it as a sequel to Emergence if Emergence had been a disease thriller. You can see a trailer for the book here. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • : Everything Bad Is Good for You: How Today's Popular Culture Is Actually Making Us Smarter

    Everything Bad Is Good for You: How Today's Popular Culture Is Actually Making Us Smarter
    The title says it all. This one sparked a slightly insane international conversation about the state of pop culture -- and particularly games. There were more than a few dissenters, but the response was more positive than I had expected. And it got me on The Daily Show, which made it all worthwhile. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • : Mind Wide Open : Your Brain and the Neuroscience of Everyday Life

    Mind Wide Open : Your Brain and the Neuroscience of Everyday Life
    My first best-seller, and the only book I've written in which I appear as a recurring character, subjecting myself to a battery of humiliating brain scans. The last chapter on Freud and the neuroscientific model of the mind is one of my personal favorites. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • : Emergence: The Connected Lives of Ants, Brains, Cities, and Software

    Emergence: The Connected Lives of Ants, Brains, Cities, and Software
    The story of bottom-up intelligence, from slime mold to Slashdot. Most of my books sold more copies than this one, but Emergence has influenced the most eclectic mix of fields: political campaigns, web business models, urban planning, the war on terror. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • : Interface Culture : How New Technology Transforms the Way We Create and Communicate

    Interface Culture : How New Technology Transforms the Way We Create and Communicate
    My first. The book I wrote instead of finishing my dissertation, predicting the growing cultural significance of interface and information design. Still relevant, I think. But I haven't read it in a while, so who knows what's in there! (Available from IndieBound here.)
