BLOG NOTES


NEUROCOMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

Zack Lynch of Brainwaves blog is an evolutionary biologist, enterprise software marketer, and economic geographer, who has worked over the past decade to understand how technology and society coevolve. He asserts:

Mental health is the ultimate competitive weapon". Mental health underpins the development of intellectual capital and competitive advantage. It anchors the capacity of employees, managers and executives to think, use ideas, be creative and be productive. By enabling a higher level of productivity, neurotechnology represents the next form of competitive advantage beyond information technology.

Just as workers today leverage information technologies for competitive purposes, workers in the neurotechnology wave (2010-2060) will turn to neuroceuticals to enhance their competitive performance.


Scary eh?

�THE POOR IN MODERN WESTERN SOCIETY� -- LARGELY A MYTH

Bussorah of Wicked Thoughts blog thinks "Nobody needs to be poor in modern Western society and very few are." He cites examples:

91 percent of those in the lowest 10 percent of households -- all of whom are officially poor -- own color TVs; 74 percent own microwave ovens; 55 percent own VCRs; 47 percent own clothes dryers; 42 percent own stereos; 23 percent own dishwashers; 21 percent own computers; and 19 percent own garbage disposals. When I grew up in the 1950s, only the wealthy owned color TVs, clothes dryers, stereos, dishwashers and disposals. These were all considered luxuries. We got by with black and white TVs, hanging our wet clothes on a line to dry, washing dishes by hand and throwing our potato peels in a pail instead of down the drain" (Source)
