di angelis on Bar-yam: Networked Civilization Revisited

This graphic from Dr. Bar-Yam's study of "networked civilization" is another great example of the power of visualization.

I was alerted to Dr. Bar-yam's study by Mark Safranski via Critt Jarvis during our "game" days. I did not have the advantage of seeing this graphic which gives a good historical perspective of the concurrent rise in complexity and diversity of specialization. Howard Rheingold sees this dual rise as the Social Dilemma in his challenge to the Cooperation Commons Welcome to the Cooperation Commons — CooperationCommons.
