Social Brains

"With nary a mention of Facebook, it could not have been more about a successful organizational model writ very large. Silicon or no. Yet the subject was not really about the massive connections of our man-made global electronic network.

More about what appears to nature's most sophisticated internal network, the human brain. Further, why and how it connects to its context, socially. It is not trivial, it is not incidental. It is key. All else we value is derived from it. We are social critters, period."

Many dismiss the significance of the natural cognition architecture on which we depend. One suspects this is unwise. History is replete with disasters caused by taking for granted the care and feeding of this self renewing mechanism. To ignore its framework's details is to miss a wonderful nurturance opportunity.
