DISRUPT OR DIE
Eén van de pijlers van Vermooooiers is het boek Humanification van Christian Kromme.
Hij weet op een unieke manier zijn kennis over technologie te verbinden met de ontwikkelingen in de samenleving en mensen als individu.
Het boek in één zin: Disrupt or die.
Hieronder een 'disrupted' bloemlezing
They told me my daughter was dying. That day, I had no idea that such dreadful news would lead to a discovery that would revolutionise our understanding of innovation – what powers innovation, how it happens, how we can predict it and even make it happen.
Disruptive innovation is no longer the exception, it’s the new normal; and change is hotting up.
Disruptive companies like Spotify, Airbnb, Skype, and Netflix have had the skills to see where the next technology wave was swelling, and they were exactly where they needed to be at the right time and they leveraged the power of the wave.
Your Body is a Blueprint for Man-Made Technology.
We are at a time where a tsunami of technology is coming at us, and we are looking to the past, thinking that future shifts are going to happen at the same rate as they did in our lifetime – but it won’t be that way.
Communities don’t get money for doing the work – at least not directly. With participation in a community it’s different. You are there because you like it, and you do something for a bigger purpose.
Nature is a beautiful thing. For all its diversity, nature follows simple patterns that are the result of simple physics and mathematics. That means that, despite the appearance of complexity, things are often simpler than they seem when you look in the right places and ask the right questions.
If I was writing this in 2030, I would probably be telling you that the traditional government structures from the beginning of the century were just too slow to keep up with the exponential change and fast-growing needs of our information-driven communities.
We can learn a great deal from the cells in our body; how they communicate with each other, how they organise and solve complex problems by working together in social, coherent, and efficient communities.
Biology provides us with a blueprint of how we can use technology to build a social, coherent and sustainable humanity.
In my field of work, I have inevitably talked to a lot of people about ‘disruptive innovation’, and what I found out is that a lot of people say, ‘okay, disruption.
Your body really does work at the speed of light, and it won’t be long before technology works just as fast. We are already closer than you think.
Facebook bought Instagram for $1 billion, and they only had thirteen people.
Companies will have a hard time competing with those smart communities. They are now unstoppable and are springing up all over the place and they are enabled by smart software and network solutions.
It just so happens that communities of cells and communities of humans have the same problems to solve and the same solutions to solve them.
There is almost no problem left that can’t be solved by smart online social communities empowered by advanced software and unlimited machine learning power in the cloud.
There are truly remarkable parallels between our own biology and our man-made technology – parallels that have already transformed all of our lives, and things are only just getting started.
There are patterns that already exist in almost every element of life on earth (and many of the patterns we see elsewhere in the universe too), and I came to realise that those same patterns apply to technology as well as nature.
Is your job or business as safe as you thought it was five minutes ago? If you thought that these disruptive little upstarts aren’t going to come to your town or city, think again. They are probably there already – even if you haven’t spotted them yet.
When a cell is relaxed, its cell membrane starts to thin and the cell absorbs information from its environment, and single cells start to multiply and to socialize. Humans do exactly the same.
The next wave will bring many companies head-to-head with the power of communities.
The cells in our body don’t get paid either, but they do get some kind of basic income. They do their work and in return they get food, shelter, warmth, but they don’t get paid because they do what they are there to do – and want to do.
I discovered that everything, from a single cell through to your own physical body of 10 trillion cells, all the plants, all the animals on the planet, AND our technology, and even artificial intelligence have followed an almost identical pattern of development.
The combined power of communities and communication systems is starting to create the ability for us to self-govern.
