Note: This is a revamps of an earlier post and is in preparation for a new post
All Global Actors are Networks (aka relationships sets) of humans:
SBN state-based network – states or super-state organizations
KBN Kin-based network – people driven by familiar or tribal ties
SEI super empowered individuals or networks of super empowered individuals
MBN meme-based network – people driven by shared beliefs such as religion, culture, political ideology)
GBN Gene-Based or Gene-Influenced Network (reference discussion)
PDN purpose-driven network – e.g. business enterprises, media outlets, NGOs, social entrepreneurial organization, charities, PMC/PSC/PIC
Mashups – The union of 2 or more actors of different types which I will note with the union operator e.g. MBNuSEI
Overlaps – The intersection of 2 or more actors of different types which I will note with the intersection operator e.g. MBNnSEI
Am I missing any fundamental type of actor here?

Curtis of PhaticCommunion and Dreaming 5GW, teased out a term in post that was on human networks – gene-based networks and meme-gene-based network.
I don’t know what to make of it but it sound cool!
Here is what I thought:
Wow. Is this taking the Selfish Gene concept and crossing it with Network Science? Is a Gene-Based Network (GBN) a family or Kin-based network? Is a GBN below the level of human consciousness? What would the Global Brain guy think of this idea?
Anybody else want to take a stab at this idea?

Here is the tool: www.aharef.info/static/htmlgraph/

yellow: for forms (FORM, INPUT, TEXTAREA, SELECT and OPTION tags)
orange: for linebreaks and blockquotes (BR, P, and BLOCKQUOTE tags)

The Organizations And Markets Blog has an interesting post on “What Do We Really Know About Organizations?
It seems like our understanding of the nature of organizations is very immature and ripe for interdisciplinary study aka horizontal thinking (e.g combined study of leadership, evolutionary psychology, sociology, anthropology network science, economics). More then half of the organization I have worked in are extremely dysfunctional (lots of waste, inefficiency and wasted human brainpower with high levels of disgruntled employees), so there has to be room for better practices.
Does anybody know of a good book summarizing the state of knowledge and the frontiers of current research in organizational studies? I am more interested in practical applications then pure academic curiosity.

I am a computer guy..I come to computer networking from hands -on experimentation (no formal classes) and I seem to have problems generalizing to a network science. The specific instance of computer networks has warped my thinking to some extent.
I have tabled several network science related posts (especially meme-based networks) because just wasn’t sure they would make sense to other people.
I am trying to learn though. I have been avoiding the Social Network Related posts over at Phatic Communion because I fear they are over my head. I need to spend a weekend reading up on all this stuff and thinking it through.

Phatic Communion‘s series on the Revised OODA is required reading.
It extends and improves upon the OODA concept, has first coverage of EBO that makes sense, and ties it all nicely into the Generations of Modern Warfare framework.
I am still digesting the first three parts before going onto the rest.
Here is an archived version of one of Phatic Communion’s graphic (I put a copy on Flickr for blogging convenience):
