Information Ecology Practices[edit]

Principle 4: understanding is enhanced by intelligent practice

The transition to a knowledge-based digital environment has been vital to the transformation of the nature of information ecosystems and a global dynamic of the intensification of intelligence. The emerging holistic life science of Information Ecology incorporates principles, disciplines and protocols that facilitate the emergence of a common collective intelligence:

  • Be mindful that information has:
  • Zero mass
  • Zero physical size
  • Virtually zero travel time
  • Be mindful that these zero-based properties - combined with advances in technology - open up a new, infinite, digital universe
  • Discover how information properties make possible - as never before - a new digital commons and
  • Enable common access to properties of the whole
  • Be mindful of the power of zero
  • addition & subtraction - it does nothing
  • multiplication - reducing any number to zero
  • division - raising any number to an immeasurable, infinite number
  • exponential power - bringing all numbers to one
  • Be mindul of zero's synonyms: nothing, none, null, empty, void, the unknown
  • Be mindful that information obeys the following principles:
  • value is enhanced by intelligent organization
  • management is enhanced by intelligent protocols
  • flow is enhanced by intelligent networks
  • understanding is enhanced by intelligent practice
  • Observe the intelligence and value of each information ecosystems with which you interact
  • Pay attention to the boundaries of information ecosystems
  • Pay attention to the interactions between information ecosystems
  • Discern and observe the architecture of information ecosystems
  • Be mindful of endangered information species and patterns of dominance
  • Observe your organization's information habitats and their dynamics. Are they in design and use?
  • Engage in an ongoing collective process of observing, enhancing and fine tunic the internal flow of information
  • Observe your personal information habitats. Are they for you?
  • Integrate, enhance and fine tune your personal information habitats
  • Seek virtually effortless interaction with your information habitats
  • Focus on hand' and eye movement alone
  • Save keystrokes whenever possible
  • Align in style with cascading styles
  • Observe the Tao of information

Doing One Thing At a Time[edit]

In karate, practicing the basic strike demands that

  1. The opponent should be vividly imagined
  2. The look should be steady and directed to the chest of the imagined opponent
  3. The elbow of the arm not striking should strike backwards with equal force
  4. The hip should rotate in order to enhance the strike
  5. The exhale should take place in the moment of impact
  6. The wrist must be straight during the strike
  7. The arm should not be streched out entirely (in order not to wear out the elbow joint)
  8. The fist should rotate just before the moment of impact

Having all this in mind when practicing is very difficult. A better idea is to concentrate on one thing at a time. Iterate over the list of things to practice. Let the other things happen by themselves or go wrong, as the case may be. This method of practicing is of course applicable in all kinds of training.

Choosing to Focus on the Practice[edit]

Another useful technique to use when practicing, also inspired by martial arts, is to enter a meditation position before and after the training.

Before the training, enter the position and

  1. Consciously remind yourself that you choose to do this training
  2. Affirm that you will be concentrated and use the time effectively
  3. Visualize yourself doing what you are going to do, feel that you are relaxed and that it is fun to practice

After the training, enter the position and

  1. Visualize what you practiced and visualize yourself doing everything perfectly
  2. Thank yourself for being concentrated and feel the joy of development
