First part of three set, including the changes triggered by the connected world in which we live. We’ll underline there all that is described by “way of doing”, now, considering things we can’t stop and have to cope with.

Did you ever live, the incredible speed of information spreading, as you first have an idea, start to tell to a friend…and what becomes next: the one tells to a friend, who tells to a friend…six degrees later world knows all about it. That shapes what is to be said: living in a connecting world allows us to save time, moments and whole phases in building innovation. You can now make work a huge diversity of people, around the clock, in a single project, getting insights from the best of them, challenging everything from seeds to concrete plan. And it changes the vision we have on anything is possible or not: speed of sourcing, evaluating and throwing an insight, our ability to get information on marketplaces, competitors or competition in a larger view. Branding or modeling prototypes and viewing them in “real” second world (3D, social games, virtual environments…). Thrilling isn’t it. Not at all but a strong opportunity.

And if it’s for us, it’s for competitors, too. Competition keeps us awake (must?), and dangers come faster than ever: from stakeholders to suppliers, or even closer partners, anyone can, without having it in mind, leak on important secrets. And for a time-based competition, connectivity might probably change the game: speed of renewal cycles, defining, correcting and sourcing make markets more demanding on the service level and innovation. Being faced in daily life to digital shift, consumers have to adopt, learn and make them, the opportunities of technology.

In production fields, the reduction of wastes, mistakes or return, driven by a more accurate forecast of volumes, needs and trends go directly on the bottom-line. Engineers can have a close feedback with marketers, for model design, duplication, customization…and on-the-go modifications. That’s an incredible change in the process, always wired, and the ability to evolve, on ongoing periods, and raise the sustainable facet of production: less wastes, less energy, less stress, as it takes part of the whole shipment way of delivering goods or services.

Don’t you know that in poor areas (like described in BOP markets with books like), 7% on the income of poors is dedicated to connectivity expenses, often before cleaning, safety water, health or food…? The only step for isolated zones to be linked, bankable and start a tiny commercial activity is to be…connected. Connectivity changed the way farmers for example, can set their prices for their crop, because they’re connected (e-choupal system) with bid marketplaces and stocks for the raws they have: they can choose quickly to do or not and with who, they are going to deal.

Hold on for the second part and “connectivity effects on resources”. Stay tuned, and meet the following part soon, here…

I could stay hours facing the sea, shores, come and go movement of waves, like and endless cure, vision of what is, was and will. A genuine force of nature, that can bring us new things : ressources, ideas, vision ; making up our mind, throwing away bad thoughts, changing what we always consider as foundings. The advantage of being “intelligence-oriented”, brain built, taking the lead on our animal instincts. The advantage of making the web real and alive.

Years ago, I stared vibrations as a mathematic concept, analyzing waves, circles and theories, between, causes, effects, between forces and energies. I was surprised and full of doubt (considering specially chaos theory, where nothing can be planned, in a kind of organisation…a strange kind we say), stepping from circles, formulas and graphs to vibrations and waves.

I was not be able yet to make some link effects, or reliable cause, with human vibrations and social networks no the web. But this time, I’m sure there is something around, that guide us in our social web relations, in the shape, style or result, but invisible in the way we use it: I can call it, intuition; feelings.

This can lead us to vibrate in the same frequency, appreciate the same things, sharing the same projects, lifes of whatever. I would call it: the flow

But in the contrary, we are rich of differences, we can vibrate in contrary movements, frequencies, making the common building in stability. I would call it: the ebb tide

And what about social media ?
Yes, you probably found out what I liked to draw, exploring these aims. Get your kicks, on the road – not 66 this time 😉 -, but on the tracks to social publishing. And see what became of these natural features: spreading your knowledge, publish, post, give water and feed to whole world. This is the first movement of endless dance, the flow…Then, get your ears and eyes wide opened, and prepare to read, stare, listen…aware to accurate comments, advises and starting to vibre at the same frequency. You brought something to common buildings, you added a stone, gave the tune. Well, you saw the ebb in function…
Flow doesn’t work without ebb: flow gives you the necessary kick to move, to think, to act, probably some ideas, and…friends ? And ebb can withdraw the black face, mistakes, and give you a new shap, a new state of mind, by getting the best from others. A fountain of new youthful, an endless chance of learning anything, from anybody; what can be more interesting, more hopeful than this ?

Now there are times for sustainable visions, in economics, ecology and social awareness ; but there are still miles from social media wealth to be understood in corporations, like a real new leverage way, to several conquests: motivation, promotion, innovation and brand new power revival, that’s the way to go, to recreate the next turning wheel, that can lead bulk to reborn: new fields of consumering, sharing, and partnership. The weapon is no longer dangerous but powerful, provided by people good sense, there’s nothing to do but listen how the wind blows, and last (but not least) reference, how the tide can provide it.

Vibrations, waves and relation make the world goes round. A kind of new energy we can’t waste – regarding classical energies vanishing more and more, or going more expensive -, a new kind of green, free, friendship energy. The next graal conquest ?
