he same weekend as we convene Platform Cooperativism in New York (entrance is gratis, the public invited), the Silicon Valley elite will be gathering for O’Reilly Media’s Next:Economy conference to discuss the future of work. “No company, no job is immune to disruption,” its website boasts, and for $3,500, you too can attend. But the future need not emanate from there.

"The hyper-measured self is a result many things, but largely of the recent increased emphasis on measurement in education and human capital management systems. For example, ISO9000, the human resource and management standards issued by the ISO impact the lives of millions of workers, as the largest quality control body for human capital management in the world. Not surprisingly, those most impacted by the standards (the millions of workers) have no say in the creation of these standards. They are created by a group of experts, with ties to most major international corporations. ISO9000 exemplifies trends in measurement intensive accountability and efficiency oriented standards for post-modern organizations. "
Humanity must find a way beyond measures of total abstraction.
Personality crisis: the hyper-realty and hyper-reflectivity of the over-measured lifestyle
This has been discussed above, and I have elsewhere theorized about the current species wide identity crisis in which humanity is embroiled (Stein, 2015). We have been fractured into a thousand imagines of humanity, with competing worldviews and competing definitions of human origins, the human self, soul, and mind. Our species is playing out an identity crisis on the world stage, and for the first time we are collectively facing the fact we do not know what it means to be human.

also from 7 months ago in kenya
via zack goldman
In light of the Paris tragedy, I have seen several people posting links to articles about a separate attack in which 147 people were killed in a Kenyan university. That is indeed an unspeakable tragedy. It is sad that the world didn't pay as much attention to this.
It is also important to note that those articles about the Kenyan attack are from last April. Many of the comments that appear when that article is posted on Facebook seem to imply that people mistakenly think that attack happened today.
However, this actually provides ironic support the posters' apparent point that that tragedy did not have the impact it should have in the minds of people around the world (since people didn't even realize they were posting news from 7 months ago)....

shake the flag

And shake that flag from your social media profile; and your home; and your thoughts. Because as long as you wear just one flag, your attempt to stand with victims of terror is a most embarrassingly hollow solidarity, indeed.
