Information Age counterpart to conveyor belt

From Knowledge Federation

Jump to: navigation, search

By saying that knowledge federation is "an Information Age counterpart to conveyor belt" we mean that:

  • knowledge federation is a characteristic new form of social organization of work;
  • knowledge federation can enable massive creation and dissemination of new technology;
  • knowledge federation can enable creation of wealth;
  • knowledge federation can be a cultural symbol of a new era.

We do not mean that knowledge federation is about mass production of uniformity, that is what the Industrial Age was about. Knowledge federation augments quality and organization, not quantity [1].
