“the internet is “a chameleon”. “It is the first medium that can act like all media — it can be text, or audio, or video, or all of the above. It is nonlinear, thanks to the world wide web and the revolutionary convention of hyperlinking. It is inherently participatory — not just interactive, in the sense that it responds to your commands, but an instigator constantly encouraging you to comment, contribute, join in. And it is immersive — meaning that you can use it to drill down as deeply as you like”

Time for ‘framework changes’ across the board. Bill Drayton, visionary who foresaw and catalyzed the social entrepreneurship movement, calls out for a very much needed transformation.
“We live in a world where education currently is about learning a few rules, and repetition of these rules reinforces them, but in a new dynamic society of flux there is no place for such stagnant rules. We need new skills and a ‘framework change’; It’s going to get very hard to create change or lead teams or even simply take part in group activities without empathy. In fact it’s the basic human social tool for surviving in this new world.”
Right on Bill.
“You cannot afford to have anyone on your team who isn’t a changemaker … and one of the qualities you need as a changemaker is empathy,” Drayton said. Drayton also shared his vision for a “fluid, open, team of teams,” where each employee has both the skills to identify opportunities and to solve problems, as the emerging organizational format for this era, as well as the departure from monolith-type corporations. “Change begets change … and the world we are going to is better,” he said.
