Opposites

BW

Matrix Loops Black and White, Available at the BigRugStore

On the scale of everything that people have ever done and will ever do, multiple view points are always there.

Tomorrow, Barack Obama will give a speech he wrote himself.  This is the opposite of the last president.

Maybe the ability to play opposites against each other ~ to see what is going on ~ will be possible now.

A grand scale of idea and information exchange may now be able to swing across full spectrums of public opinion.  What a perfect mathematics and art problem.  Solving this problem in meaningful ways would include:

* Incorporating diverse viewpoints, agendas, and business models;

* Opening and strengthening communication channels;

Opposites can look alike – maybe people had to dislike Sarah Palin before being able to laugh with Tina Fey.  Maybe there had to be an economic crisis and two wars to:

* Speed up the pace of innovation about strategic data capture and efficient re-use;

Obama’s brand new speech tomorrow will address the oldest problems where:

* Seeing, being able to work with and fine tune diverse viewpoints in pragmatic, opposite-side-of-the-coin-ways may be able to help really understand what transparent governance looks like and how it functions;

* Public safety is the opposite of paranoia;

* Openess and Reason are the opposite of opaqueness, IE opacity, without the ability to see, compare or study;

* Actually thinking and considering multiple viewpoints are the opposite of rash actions that cost a lot of money and do not actually deliver schools or other locally useful buildings to the people supposedly being helped;

When Barack Obama takes office, the future is a welcome opposite to the past.

People Can’t Find Things

Offices, organizations, and knowledge domains produce so much useful information. People who are learning about an office, organization, or area of knowledge need best practice notes, standard details, and lessons-learned to be super easy to look through.

When people do not know what things are called to input a specific term, it is difficult for machines to help sort through all the good ideas and information generated before. Perhaps a better geometry is needed to link together and organize records in such a way that people are led, by machines, to only information that is relevant to their skill level, language, and task at hand, rather than endless lists of everything under the sun.

World Overviews

WorldLanguages

Languages of the World Map edited by Raymond G. Gordon Jr. in 1995 for Ethnologue.

Seeking permission to alter the graphic by marking the locations of the Board of Directors and develop a symbolic overlay to indicate the languages each person uses in the places they live and where they work. For example, Vera W. de Spinadel is a mathematician from Argentina, her primary language is Spanish, but she is also fluent in English. Ken Petersen is here in Washington but an expert in Russian languages and its derivatives… the purpose is to show how our nonprofit organization communicates within the context of everything else.
