No previous generation had it, no future generation will be without it. Many thanks for your comments and shares.19/08/2017 #20 Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBeeI believe social media started as chatrooms. I learned to touch-type in a chatroom called Forty Something. That was twenty years ago. We got together, one time, to have brunch at a local Marriott. Luckily it was close to me, but people came from all over the country. I conversed with someone in the group, and another piped up and said.
"You were never one to mince words, Joyce..."
It was true. That's still me. I don't mince words.
I used ICQ.
Thanks for the memories, Gert. A travel through time--a time-capsule of sorts.
Today's contributions to the joining of humans are much appreciated.19/08/2017 #19 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#12 The key thing I remember from 1998 is signing up for the Company of Friends group and how I felt engaging my first post, it was a totally strange world back then, only by going back and remembering how it actually was, do we remember what a phenomenal development the World-Wide Web actually is. Thanks to Tim Berners-Lee for his extraordinary gift to make this possible, he could have made more money than Mark Zuckerberg had he made his discovery proprietary and patented. but we would be experiencing the net differently - and in modern times a hat tip to net neutrality.19/08/2017 #9 Chas ✌️ Wyatt@Gert Scholtz, I was unfamiliar with Six Degrees. Thanks. Just as a footnote, Ryze was the first business social network founded in 2001, two full years before LinkedIn and MySpace, by Adrian Scott, an early investor in Napster. It became most popular in India. It is still online, but, its popularity has faded.19/08/2017 #7 Renée 🐝 CormierThe wonder of beBee is that you actually get to know other users through their writing and their engagement with all the posted content.

I had picked up a copy of Fast Company magazine and read about a community they had started called "Company of Friends". This was led by a guy called Heath Row. Heath Row went on to follow other social initiatives including working with Seth Godin called Squidoo. I have no idea what Heath Row is doing now, but I liked the way he thought.
beBee history is what is defined by beBee rather than the journey to arrive to this point. That journey may have taught the founders of beBee things that have helped them scale beBee, but the future is about exponential growth. Mark Zuckerberg is not focusing his mind on his "Hot or Not" application at Harvard University or how he is portrayed in the movie "Social Network", He has a Chinese wife and a child which he assumed would carry weight with the Chinese government, his play for China was swatted as was his play for India with the promise of "Free Internet" - the Indian government also were ahead of him, not that they were trying to stop his gambit but Zuckerberg at that time was not ready to play at that level but he had played his hand at what he knew best, which is still central to the rest of Facebook's success.
The history of beBee is the history of this brand and when I first joined it, it had found a blue ocean that other networks did not focus on and grew in that blue ocean area, just like Walmart grew in the blue ocean area of rural towns, but the difference is when Walmart went urban, it had enough size and scale to make then big boys K-mart lose their space. K-Mart had run-of-the-mill leadership, whereas Sam Walton had street-smarts and scale. Bebee can choose to be a K-mart but still can be a Walmart and that means making the most of it's original blue ocean advantage and finding its Eric Schmidt.

As for sharing buzzes here on LI I am not sure that views conts up. When this buzz had here 600 views it had 1100 views on LI, If they add up then the number of views on beBee must have been more. But it is nice to get different comments from different platforms.19/08/2017 #33 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#32 Yes, and your comment gets hold of the main idea if the buzz @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher. SOmetimes, we reorganize into better selves when exposed to high tensions. In my next buzz zI hope to write on away to write great stories. How the heros self-organize after reaching the peak of a tension they experience. This is their self-awakening.19/08/2017 #32 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher@Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, great information. This caught my eye, "More choices may mean more entropy and free of movement after which the system may self-organize into butter structures." I think you are very wise, because many times we do see systems organize into better structures. When people understand they can think for themselves without being chastised, the flow can be amazing. It also creates a better environment over all.17/08/2017 #28 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee@Javier 🐝 beBee- just a quick note. This is the first time the number of comments and views of any of my buzzes that are less on beBee than the shared ones on LinkedIn. The average number of views on my buzzes on beBee was 2600 Now, over the last twenty buzzes the number is less than 2000. On the contrary, views on LI moved up from an average of about 400 to more than 1000 lately.
I hope this trend is not experienced by other author bees. If yes, then it shall be interesting to find out why. Is it due to amy falling quality of buzzes? Is it because I am repeating myself? Whatever reason is, the trend may be worthy of your attention.
On a personal level, I am so happy to get the feedback I am getting and even more than I deserve. However; you may find it of value to gauge this trend.17/08/2017 #27 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#26 as nuch as you keep me alive with your support dear @Liesbeth Leysen, MSc.

https://www.bebee.com/producer/@liesbeth-leysen/the-dragon-that-wanted-to-fly-to-australia16/08/2017 #24 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#23 I am truly privileged by your comment @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. I thank you for sharing and placing the buzz in your hive Violet Hive. You brought order to the nuzz and your imagination with your powerful abstract thinking have found order in disorder. Your powerful mentioning of hives being a way of self-organizing is spot on. I expressed same and explained tis in my buzz " Fingerprint of Change"
I wrote in this buzz "The best theory is an applied theory. The conference achieved both through running two days of lectures on topics related to the activities of the workshops. This way the participants decided which workshop to attend depending on several factors such as their interests and their apprehension of the topic by the speakers. Thinking about it this is a self-organizing approach and inline with the modern theories of management. The participants dissolved themselves in the hives (workshops) of their interest. It also served as measure of the ability of lecturers to attract the bees (participants) to their hives. It is a pull mechanism and not a push one. This made the atmosphere of the conference attracting, inviting and highly engaging". I believe hives work on same principles.16/08/2017 #23 CityVP 🐝 ManjitThe learning hives I utilize here are created on the basis of order emanating from disorder. The very learning pathways I have created here were due to my exposure to self-organizing systems, which began with Stewart Kauffman's observation that "order is for free". That idea was then pursued by Margaret Wheatley.
This is something that triggered a paradox wisdom based on imagination, from a very order based buzz by @Harley King about practical application of imagination. The education system takes great efforts to order our imagination rather than allow the natural disorder of imagination to bring forth order from disorder.
This is what allowed me to place Harley's buzz on Imagination in my White Hive but places this particular buzz on "Order from Disorder" in my Violet Hive. This buzz is also a practical application but one about complexity. When we read a paper on Complexity like this one http://pespmc1.vub.ac.be/Papers/ELIS-complexity.pdf it is very helpful to find an orderly view, otherwise disorder simply leads to disorder.
The more orderly a mind is the more the resulting thoughts lead to disorder and such orderly minds produce concrete thinking that has its place in basic managerial functions. Abstract thinking stems from having the ability to coexist in disorder but we need an abstract mind to obtain the order within the disorder. High levels of leadership require greater abstraction.
We also have a problem because order and disorder is often confused with disorder as a medical description. If i suffer from a disorder that is not the same thing as what Kauffman described about self-organizing systems.16/08/2017 #22 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#21 Thank you @Mohammed A. Jawad. In chaotic systems we find the two order and disorder oscillating in layers. If management decides to apply to much control then it should expect that under certain rate of mistrust-building that soon the capacity of the organization to hold the negativity of over-controlling will only lead to chaos. You bring a hugely-important point which is we may generate disorder because of extended over-control.16/08/2017 #21 Mohammed A. JawadPresumably without a distinctive corporate culture the whole work atmosphere will oscillate between order and disorder. And the controlling management team, with gimmicks and politics, will do nothing except more planning and less execution. What then? There's always a residue of corrupt system that derails everything.16/08/2017 #20 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#19 Great point and you remind me of the great comment that @Magdalena-Maria GROSU wrote o the this bizz shred on LI.
