Does Cooperation Require Both Reciprocity and Alike Neighbors?

Evolution by definition is cold and merciless: it selects for success and weeds out failure. It seems only natural to expect that such a process would simply favour genes that help themselves and not others.

Thus, one of the major questions in science today is how cooperative behaviour could evolve.

In search of Learning Agility

The central premise is that enduring competitive advantage must be built on organizational learning agility — meaning an organization’s ability to respond to adaptive challenge through the acquisition and application of knowledge and skills. The authors, Clark and Gottfredson,  sketch three distinct stages of learning agility: 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0, and illustrate a clear path forward for the meaningful use of learning technologies in organizations.

The evolution of Meeting Formats, the rebirth of the Campfire Meeting

Long ago we had meetings around a campfire. A small group of people in a circle, listening to stories, debating, conversing, learning from each other.

And even more recently, thanks to sound equipment, we all can afford to address a public, larger than the campfire crowd.

The Society of Experimental Social Psychology (SESP)

The Society of Experimental Social Psychology (SESP) is a scientific organization dedicated to the advancement of social psychology. One of the main ways that SESP furthers this goal is by holding an annual meeting in October of each year. In 2009, the SESP Conference will be held in Portland, Maine, on October 15-17.
SESP also publishes two research journals: the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology and Social Psychological and Personality Science. All SESP members receive online access to these journals as part of their annual dues.


Netweaving is a "Golden Rule" form of Networking which can be used by Meeting Architects to achieve and expand their networking objectives.  Networking is primarily done with the idea in mind of building or adding to one's own network, whereas Netweaving is based on the concept of helping others build or add to their own network for their benefit.
