La prima guerra nella quale le macchine hanno preso il sopravvento sui codici culturali umani, è stata la Seconda Guerra Mondiale. Prima dei codici e dei virus di internet, la guerra dei codici radio, ha scatenato i primi bagni di sangue. l’Internet delle cose promette avventure avvincenti ma minaccia rischi spettrali. Nell’immagine un brano interessante.
I would like to get lost in space
Like a lost astronaut
I was floating through life,
longing for gravity.
And I couldn’t take
I just wanted to belong
in time and space.
on all five continents,
in water and on land,
until there was
only one place left:
It took me a while
that the endlessness
I was so scared of
was who I am.
turned into purpose
when I found my home
between the stars.
My long distance mentor Seth Godin says
“Go with your gut,” is occasionally good advice.
More often, though, it’s an invitation to indulge in your fear or to avoid the hard work of understanding the nuance around us.
Better advice is, “invest in making your gut smarter.”
The world is a lot more complex than our gut is likely to comprehend, at least without training. Train your gut, get better instincts.
How do this?
1)Practice going with your instincts in private. Every day, make a judgment call. Make ten. Make predictions about what’s going to happen next, who’s got a hit, what designs are going to resonate, which videos will go viral, which hires are going to work out. Write them down or they don’t count. It makes no sense to refuse to practice your instinct and to only use it when the stakes are high.
2) Figure out how to talk about your instincts so that they’re no longer instincts. A thinking process shared is inevitably going to get more rigorous. Ask your colleagues to return the favor, by challenging each other to expose their thinking as well.
