What is the Modern Day Medici Effect?

  1. Landscape historian J.B. Jackson called this kind of junction a “cultural hearth,” which is not nearly as good a name as the Medici Effect.

    Thought the Lateral Action post was terrific (read it earlier today), I was inspired to check out a few new hangouts.

  2. Hi,

    This is happening because people think that the ordinary is boring. Special associations will create an impact on their brain and will consider such an article something new even thou it presents a common story.

    Thank you

  3. You know, the post you speak of (and the one I wrote about it afterwards at MwP) is a post I come back to consistently and often. I can’t shake it from my mind, and it has profoundly influenced my year.

    There is *so* much opportunity at our fingertips today – all we have to do is choose our path.

  4. Is this what’s known as linkbait? 🙂

    Sorry mate, your post was in my mind but as you know I had to stay up past my bedtime to add all the links on that post, so it looks like I dozed off and missed one!

    Consider it done.

  5. Best reason yet for those of us in associations to embrace the web … I throw out the question to those “non-engaged” association members to make this call to others in a way that changes the association model.

    And kudos on the 10 ten social network article so – I shared with many after I read it …

  6. Mark, that was a joke. I took the British dry wit approach. 🙂

    Worse, I forgot James wrote a follow-up post and linked to his comment instead. D’oh!

  7. Not only do I want to go back and read that post, several times, but I want to read the Medeci effect as well. I’ve never heard of the book, but it’s one of my biggest beliefs that we’re at the lip of a Renaissance, should we choose to accept it.

  8. I think I like “cultural hearth” on a chilly, windy day. I liked Triiibes, then I liked it even more when a notification came through that one of the groups I had chosen had a new member; a woman I hadn’t seen in several years when we were acquaintances in another state! Now I really liked Triiibes!
    I hooked up with my first Ning network Wednesday. I think I’m really going to like Online Business Manager Connections.

    I crave physcial solitude and sometimes virtual solitude, but I also like to get things done and be there when things happen. I try to choose groups that look as if they will Do things and have something happening.

    So, I come here!
