From the beginning of recorded history, people have been organized in networks to communicate and exchange value. How have human relationships changed over time? In this brief presentation, we will look at how communication, relationships and value have evolved.
We’ll look briefly at history, such as Moses and the 10 Commandments, the American Revolution and 20th Century business life. Today, our society is moving rapidly toward self-organizing networks, a phenomenon described by sociologist Niklas Luhmann in the 1980s and 1990s. We are living his theory today in the age of social media.
