Robin Sloan on (social media) "stock and flow". But I actually think stock and flow is the master metaphor for media today. Here’s what I mean: Flow is the feed. It’s the posts and the tweets. It’s the stream of daily and sub-daily updates that reminds people you exist. Stock is the durable stuff. It’s the content you produce that’s as interesting in two months (or two years) as it is today. It’s what people discover via search. It’s what spreads slowly but surely, building fans over time.... I feel like flow is ascendant these days, for obvious reasons—but we neglect stock at our own peril... But I’m not saying you should ignore flow! No: this is no time to hole up and work in isolation, emerging after long months or years with your perfectly-polished opus. Everybody will go: huh? Who are you? (more)

Stephen Jay Gould (/ɡuːld/; September 10, 1941 – May 20, 2002) was an American paleontologist, evolutionary biologist, and historian of science. He was also one of the most influential and widely read writers of popular science of his generation.[1] Gould spent most of his career teaching at Harvard University and working at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. In 1996 Gould was hired as the Vincent Astor Visiting Research Professor of Biology at New York University, where he divided his time teaching there and at Harvard. Gould's most significant contribution to evolutionary biology was the theory of punctuated equilibrium, which he developed with Niles Eldredge in 1972... Gould received many accolades for his scholarly work and popular expositions of natural history,[75] but a number of biologists felt his public presentations were out of step with mainstream evolutionary thinking.[76] The public debates between Gould's supporters and detractors have been so quarrelsome that they have been dubbed "The Darwin Wars" by several commentators... Richard Dawkins accused Gould of deliberately underplaying the differences between rapid gradualism and macromutation in his published accounts of punctuated equilibrium.[84] He also devoted entire chapters to critiquing Gould's account of evolution in his books The Blind Watchmaker and Unweaving the Rainbow, as did Daniel Dennett in his 1995 book Darwin's Dangerous Idea.

Peter H. Diamandis (/diːʌˈmændɪs/; born May 20, 1961) is a Greek American engineer, physician,[1] and entrepreneur best known for being founder and chairman of the X Prize Foundation, cofounder and executive chairman of Singularity University and coauthor of The New York Times bestsellers...

Singularity University (abbreviated SU) is a Silicon Valley think tank that offers educational programs and a business incubator.[2][3] According to its website, it focuses on scientific progress and "exponential" technologies.[4] It was founded in 2008 by Peter Diamandis and Ray Kurzweil at the NASA Research Park in California, United States.

Vivek Wadhwa on Ray Kurzweil's Singularity University (Singularity). Singularity University was founded by futurist Ray Kurzweil and XPrize founder Peter Diamandis, in 2009. It has a who’s who of the scientific community on its board and notable backers like Google... It aims to solve the Grand Challenge-s that humanity faces—such as poverty, famine, disease, global warming, and dwindling energy supplies—by teaching select groups of business executives, technologists, and government leaders the advances that are occurring in “exponential technologies”. It challenges its students to think about radical new innovations that will affect the lives of a billion people within 10 years. “Exponential technologies” are those technologies that don’t grow gradually, but at light speeds—in fields like robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), computational neuroscience, and nanotech... The university runs a 10-week graduate studies program and shorter executive programs... The school has already inspired many. It had four team projects start companies last summer, and 15 this summer. (Start Up)

More than 30 news publishers and several technology companies (including Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn and WordPress) were initially announced as collaborators in the AMP Project.
