I love philosophing about world-improving subjects. Our world is becoming more and more ‘flat’ not in the least part because of Internet and social networks that bring people together who otherwise would never have found eachother. It’s part of a global consciousness transition which could take on astronomical effects. Based on the universal law of free-will and driven by many (most?) humans wanting to handle as autonomously as possible, our world might evolve into a new kind of networking ecosystem. An ecosystem where we learn how to organize things that need to be organized in a totally different way than via our more traditional autority-based techniques like e.g. hierarchies. So, while I am a proud member of several “local” teams close to me, operating mostly in a well defined context, I am also more and more proud to be member of what I like to call “The World as my other team”. This “other” team as I envision it, is a virtual team where you and I share ideas, thoughts etc. and inspire each other towards world-scale improvement. That is holistically thinking and I am a believer that we need that more and more if we really want to solve todays many world-scale problems. The best way to do that, we all have yet to find out, but there are clear signs everywhere that we are willing to let go more and more of old ‘systems’ that helped us get to where we are now, but fail to get us really further. Perhaps by experimenting and using “the World is my other team” paradigm we find the breakthroughs we so desperately need. Happy team finding!
