How is your brain like an anthill and like Facebook? It’s all in the networking.
Anthills, Facebook and your brain have much in common, says entrepreneur and cognitive science expert Jeff Stibel. All three will thrive or die according to the same laws that govern networks. If you understand and can harness networking, Stibel argues, you can make better decisions in complex situations and be prepared for changes to come. Stibel sometimes lets anecdotes and analogies carry his arguments. Most of the time, however, those arguments are vivid, original and useful. getAbstract recommends his insights to readers interested in networks, futurism, the Internet, sustainability and making better decisions.
In this summary, you will learn
- How networks work,
- Why networks are important, and
- How important networks like the Internet and your brain are similar.
