Virgin 72 Artists Poster

November 30, 2005

Virgin heeft een gave reclame poster gemaakt waarin 74 artiesten zijn te herkennen, zoals the Rolling Stones, guns n’ Roses, Alice in Chains, the B 52s enz… Het leuke is dat de bandnamen zijn uitgebeeld dus je moet puzzelen om ze te vinden. Het nieuws is al een weekje oud, dus de antwoorden zijn wel allom op het Internet te vinden maar het leukste is natuurlijk om ze zelf proberen te vinden, klik de thumbnail voor de poster.

Spiral Dynamics Online

November 30, 2005

Spiral Dynamics via memetic engineering :

Spiral Dynamics
Mind-blowing site that combines Richard Dawkins’ concept of the ‘meme’ with Mihaly Csikzentmihalyi (Optimal Psychology), and Clare W. Graves (the “Emergent-Cyclical, Double-Helix Model of Bio-psycho-social Behaviour”). Spiral Dynamics differs from other memetics sites in being oriented towards open-ended evolving values systems: the Third Force in a revolutionary paradigm including Chaos Theory and Systems Design. It reveals the “hidden codes that shape human nature, create global diversities, and drive evolutionary change. The methodologies have been successfully applied in a wide variety of contexts, including transforming South Africa out of race categories, revitalising local communities and sporting teams, and designing organizational and marketing systems for blue chip corporate firms and top-level government sectors. The system has been applied geopolitically by the Clinton/Bush (US) and Blair (UK) administrations on a variety of domestic and international issues.” SD is currently being meme-spliced with the Integral Psychology of metaphysician Ken Wilbur. Mandatory reading if you want to be Isaac Asimov’s Hari Seldon.

Een memetic engineer…dat lijkt me een waanzinnig concept
