Kayleigh Petrie: Digital cooperatives are the future. The operations, day to day decisions and rules can be easily handled and enforced by pre-defined code, called smart contracts, running on a blockchain. (more)

Evan Armstrong: Product-Led Growth’s Failure. Qualtrics should’ve lost but somehow emerged victorious. By wielding a 3 pronged strategy of utilizing cheap Utah labor, gutsy product marketing, and aggressive GTM tactics, the company resoundingly beat Surveymonkey. (more)

Tribes, Institutions, Markets, Networks (more)

John Robb on Tribalism and how it fits into David Ronfeldt's TIMN framework (Tribes, Institutions, Markets, Networks). Each time a new form arises, it generates a set of dynamics - and it's the same set of dynamics each time. No society can escape the TIMN progression or these dynamics.

Aaron Z. Lewis: Being Your Selves: Identity R&D on alt Twitter. I grew up in cyber spaces where legal names were few and far between: RuneScape, AIM, Club Penguin, Neopets, and the like. But when I turned 13, Facebook opened up its floodgates to teenagers across America and washed away our playful screen names. (more)

When a businesses priorities/culture and growth are focused on product management.

Will Wright is working on a Computer Game based on Maneki Neko - actually an ARG?!? (more)

Bruce Sterling's Maneki Neko story (from 1998?!?) reminds me of Halting State (the SPOOKS ARG bits) and Daemon. The really big network databases, with their armies of search engines, indexers, and catalogues, had some very arcane interests. The net machines would never pay for data, because the global information networks were noncommercial. But the net machines were very polite, and had excellent net etiquette. They returned a favor for a favor, and since they were machines with excellent, enormous memories, they never forgot a good deed... He had first met his wife at a video store. She had just used her credit card to buy a disk of primitive black-and-white American anime of the 1950s. The pokkecon had urged him to go up and speak to her on the subject of Felix the Cat. Felix was an early television cartoon star and one of Tsuyoshi’s personal favorites. Tsuyoshi would have been too shy to approach an attractive woman on his own, but no one was a stranger to the net... Tsuyoshi offered a hand gesture. The woman gestured back, a jerky series of cryptic finger movements. Tsuyoshi didn’t recognize any of the Gesture-s. She wasn’t from his part of the network.
