Example text

Similarly, online issues of security, education, health, trade, and education now depend as much on social factors as on technical ones. Yet the real issue is neither social nor technical but how they connect. As humanity enters a new millennium, one cannot help but feel that we have, over thousands of years, and sometimes with bitter struggle, made social progress. Villages formed into towns, then cities, then city states, then nations, then “nations of nations”, such as the United States, the European Union, or China.

A society’s ability to endure requires predictability or order, while its ability to innovate and reinvent itself in new times requires freedom. A society needs privacy rules to shield members from each other, and has transparency if services like “the media” let people see what is going on. Openness means the society lets other people and ideas enter to make value, while identity draws the conceptual boundary between “us” (the in-group) and “them” (the out-group), which written or unwritten “constitution” can prevent foreign mores from taking over the group and defines who can join.

A group is just any set of individuals who see themselves as a group (DeSanctis & Gallupe, 1987), yet this perception increases performance. Seeing something at a higher level lets one organize it in a better way, just as software is a better way to operate computers than manipulating circuit voltages. g. for users to backup a “document” currently takes three functional steps: 1. Save As, 2. Select backup file name (unlike previous backups), 3. Load original file (else further work changes the backup not the “master”).
