The part I really want the folks collaborating at Ned to see is this:
It is our obligation as careholders of the new kind of world we hope to create, to recognize the need to invest and participate in developing new forms of governance – and that starts with governing ourselves. As we collaborate more and more, the structures and systems within which we are accustomed to working will, by necessity, become stretched. To collaborate with maximum effectiveness, we must find ways to make our old legal structures, our old moral boundaries, and our old economic models irrelevant to the task of mobilizing solutions.
I do not mean to suggest that we learn to work in a state of lawlessness. On the contrary, we must each find the courage to understand and accept the current-system risks and constraints to innovation that we face, and start developing new norms for operating in the cross-dimensional space we share.
I look forward to your comments and reactions. You might want to add this to your Ned watchlist.
