Knowledge Persons and NetoCracy

Maybe my understanding of NetoCracy is simplistic. I don’t know. NetoCracy can be as well as any other project can be, if it will be accepted by ... I don’t know who really needs it. It looks like an attempt to save hierarchy – elite and underclass – successful persons and losers within the system ... (the system again and again ...).

Such hierarchy can be represented as network or NetoCracy, or something else ... doesn’t matter, but with periodical or constant revolts in various forms. Knowledge is being considered as a currency – not well defined, too general, without limitations, a subject for complex (or complicated) elite discussions, etc. It’s similar to money – you can buy everything (illusion), though money is already being questioned - "clean" or "dirty"?

But maybe NetoCracy is far from reality, even future reality?

Can you imagine how so-called NetoCrats can control knowledge creation and distribution?

Every person anywhere (a peasant in Africa, a hunter in Siberia, a professor in some university, etc.) deals with knowledge and can be Knowledge Person (even off-line). Knowledge Persons don’t need to be elite and/or underclass because they interact on one level. Such interaction is collaboration during their lifetime – NetLiving. Knowledge Persons collaborate to prolong their healthy life by knowledge exchange (free and paid – knowledge economy), not for unleashing net wars or war based competition. In result there are no reasons for revolts.

Utopia?

Consider the nature of knowledge in comparison with other assets:

It’s possible to take away land, goods, business, etc. and construct the power, based on this possibility.

Think - how someone can take away knowledge?

He/she can take only its copy, but its developer will go further and the only way to be with this person (and knowledge) – to collaborate with the developer, not to fight.

Now you have some additional insights that:

- Group for Knowledge Persons is for your interaction (many to many);
- this blog is for what I think and do (one to many – posts, and many to one - comments);
- the framework for collaborative self-consulting is the general structure for your valued managerial actions (business, non-profit, personal), where to connect with assistance, to earn 50% of the framework price.

Are you Knowledge Person?

They aren't trying to save hierarchy. But they certainly think it will emerge in this new economic mode.

And who they are, Phil? If they think, who will try? In other words – who can really do such things and why?
