A New Take

Those of you who know my writing might be forgiven for being confused about what it is that I focus on. Is it technology and AI or is it mission-driven, stakeholder-friendly organizations?

The answer is both. And I’ve now taken a short crack at how these two topics connect on the new “About” page for the Vital Edge.

This website features a seemingly incongruous combination of writings about the future of technology and the need for us to reform human organizations. The reason for this pairing is that I believe that today’s organizations are the seedbed from which the future of planetary intelligence now grows. It is my belief that our single greatest point of leverage for ensuring a positive future for humanity and the planet rests with the “code beneath the code” of today’s organizations.



  1. About mermaids.

  2. Interesting Gideon Rosenblatt thank you 🙂

  3. Mermaids are the future, Gabby Thiede .

    Water World. 😉

  4. I like Pam’s idea! Then I can listen to them on my drive to the office 🙂

  5. Pam Adger and Alexandra Riecke-Gonzales, I’ve never really looked at what would be involved in doing that.

    I’m not a big podcast guy myself, so are thinking that it’d be me simply reading these articles? Or something more free flowing?

  6. Gideon Rosenblatt I just double checked, mermaids are definitely part of our past explanations of future porpoise. 😉

    What strikes me as an old pattern to overcome is the underlying salvation theme of this creature with her eyes wide open and her lips closed. I don’t think she needs to be freed from water world. Rather I feel reminded of being the observer of someone breathing life into something.

    The future remains airy in past ambiguities.

  7. Gabby Thiede that pun deserves an acknowledged chuckle.

    The intent, actually, behind this image when I first selected in a few years back was to evoke the bluish machine but within a being that is very human.

    But mermaid is good too. 😉

  8. I agree with Pam (of course I do, she’s way smarter than I am lol). Plus, there’s something kind of unique about hearing an author read their own writing. I think it offers more cues into what the author really meant (you get nonverbal cues that you can’t in the written word).

  9. The sound of sirens singing their “code beneath the code”. 🙂

  10. Alexandra Riecke-Gonzales , OK. I’m looking into it. Thanks for the encouragement. You too, Pam Adger. You’ve got me thinking. Just have to weigh the costs in added time. It’s a good idea though…

    I’ll be sure to ping you if I ended going through with it.

  11. Gideon, very interesting topic, thanks for sharing.

  12. Yeah, I’m more of a text person…not saying the podcast is a bad idea, but I’ll keep reading the articles, thanks. 😀

  13. You think reform human organizations. I think up to mission- driven.

    Handle focus to help goal. Hmmmm…..

  14. Gabby Thiede Don’t trust them. Organisations write their own enormous profits in to the code which means that we all end up with less of the available pot

  15. InterAct Party Oh, I trust Gideon and the organizations he writes for and about to be clear about the financial profits they want to make. It’s the very code water they swim in.

    The young damsel in distress due to lack of future intelligence and therefore in need of salvation is being used to have the pot bubble grow. An old pattern that is being used as seedbed for old ideas.

    Securing real life resources for everyone through AI and their stakeholders might be raising good marketing arguments for the water worlders. In the air world, the bubble is just air within air.

    “we all end up with less of the available pot” is definitely too unsubstantiated for my processing system, as you can see. 😉

  16. Hi there I’m interested in exploring what ur post too different way of looking at things in the world and new things

  17. Hy mr.gideon,why you give +1 to darling chrissy crantord without picture? Are you sure about person?? No pic then strange about person.when lie too

  18. Everyone needs too stop in there tracks and make them look better than they did before and the first thing they said they were going through was awesome 🦅

  19. Pam Adger and Alexandra Riecke-Gonzales, it’s not a podcast, but I am experimenting with a new, short video format:

    youtube.com – The Singularity Won’t Just Happen to Larry Page

  20. Gideon Rosenblatt very cool! Wish I could watch it during my commute … Maybe if you read along with the slides, then I get the visual when I can pay attention and the audio when I’m driving?

  21. Alexandra Riecke-Gonzales, yeah, it doesn’t solve the problem you originally raised. More of just an experiment in altering the mix of media.

    I thought a bit about just reading these pieces out loud for a podcast, but I just don’t think that maps to what they really are, which is more spontaneous, right?

  22. Gideon Rosenblatt yeah I can understand that … So maybe you take the same topic and do a podcast off the cuff? Similar but related content?

  23. Alexandra Riecke-Gonzales, I’m not sure, but you two have got me thinking about this stuff…
