  • Understanding Forocoches is understanding the emerging systems

    I've been writing here for a few years now about emerging systems, whether it's the ant hills, the video game The Sims, 15M, etc. But there are few things as visual as this video of El Tekila, a guy who won a popular TV dance contest, to understand what...

  • Disclosure of an emerging system

    An emergent system is formed by many interactions of many individuals. That is, you enclose many simple individuals such as ants that have simple communication patterns, such as the ten words that ants use; in a space, such as the anthill that they create and modify over time. Something like this...

  • What is an intrapreneur?

    An intrapreneur is a worker who does new things within a company, i.e. a person who undertakes without owning the company. This busy XXI century is very different from the previous one, that is why we are living in a time of change that does not seem to stop but seems to be going to...

  • StartupSpain III. The field

    Spain has the makings for good startups, we have few large companies that patent and exploit their industrial property but many small companies used to innovate in their day to day, we are a country of inventors.

  • Emergency times and rules to survive them

    Yes, we are also in the situation produced by some disasters; but now I refer to the emergency as the power that goes from the bottom up. To the emerging systems, and not to the wars between governments and speculators or between supporters of the Dollar and the Euro; wars in which we are only tokens of...

  • What does a social network need to look like to work?

    If you want to build a social network and you look at those that have already been successful, such as Facebook, you will be late in the Web 2.0 evolutionary race; bear in mind that the successful social networks in 2006 were better than those of 2005 and worse than those that emerged in 2007, that is why, in...

  • Free software is leading the way

    Perhaps the most difficult thing to assume about the change we are living and the new world that will result is that sharing is the way to win. Our brains are not prepared for this; we can be ethical or good, it doesn't matter, in our heritage, winning and sharing are different things, almost at odds with each other. And it is likely to cost us more than one....

  • Lewis Thomas defined emerging systems in 1973

    Above all, we must preserve the absolute unpredictability and total improbability of our interconnected minds. Then we can keep all possibilities open, as we have done in the past. It would be nice to have better methods of monitoring changes, to be able to recognize them as they are occurring... Perhaps computers can make this possible, although it...

  • My reading of #spanishrevolution II Justification

    There is a tool that works on Twitter tags and it is called hashtagify. If we start by telling it to paint us the tags most related to #leysinde we find the following: With a correlation of 16% with #leysinde we get the tag #nolesvotes, #nolesvotes correlates in turn to 17% with #spanishrevolution and #spanishrevolution....

  • My reading of #spanishrevolution

    You are wrong if you are looking for leaders behind what happened after the May 15 rallies. Forget conspiracy theories, this has been born from the bottom up, it is an emerging phenomenon and obeys different laws. Let me explain, half a year ago the so-called Sinde Law was debated in Parliament, which...
