The new order of things?

I’m Johnnie Moore, and I help people work better together

Earl has some interesting reflections on a post by Jon Husband about the kind of changes we may be going through.

Lots to think about. I’m enthusiastic about the notion that we’re in the midst of revolutionary change and the imminent collapse of the old order. Of course my conception of the old order may be different from yours and I’m always wary of two-dimensional diagrams to represent how we may be experience complex change. Of course they offer insights but they also tempt us back to the idea that change is sort of linear, really. I like the way Earl points out there’s other ways we can draw all these curves.
