“From Hierarchy to Wirearchy .. ” from C. LaRowe of @_BridgePartners .. bridgepartnersconsulting.com/insights/detai… … < prof’nl courtesy of attribution lacking@jonhusband Jon, we are very sorry for this. Our intention was never to take credit for your work. We have updated the post.@jonhusband Grazing a handful of thinkers’ ideas and presenting them as one’s own? Shameful. Need to fix that,@_BridgePartners.@costrike: @_BridgePartners It’s a good start. I’d also credit @hjarche for “perpetual beta” and @jhagel for “pull,” if I had written it.
because we can.
so we can’t not.
and on it goes.. well – has been going. this one just seems hugely obvious.. the silliness. the wasted energy ness..

Oliver Jeffers on ownership
This Moose Belongs to Me (public library) — a disarming story about a boy who believes he owns his pet moose Marcel, only to discover that so do other people, who call him by different names, while the moose himself doesn’t quite get the concept of being owned and is thus oblivious to the boy’s list of rules for being a good pet.
the story is, above all, a parable about the nature of ownership as a mutually agreed upon figment and the comical sense of entitlement it engenders.
Perhaps Mark Twain put it best in his supportive letter to Helen Keller when she was accused of plagiarism:“Substantially all ideas are second-hand, consciously and unconsciously drawn from a million outside sources.”
We only own something because everybody agrees that we do.
