#CMAC – The Ultimate Disruptor, it seems…

“…

 Our story, therefore, needs two dimensions of time: a long arc of time that is our lifespan, and the timeframe of direct experience that is the moment. Now the self that experiences directly can only exist in the moment, but the one that narrates needs several moments, a whole sequence of them, and that’s why our full sense of self needs both immersive experience and the flow of time. Now, the flow of time is embedded in everything, in the erosion of a grain of sand, in the budding of a little bud into a rose.Without it, we would have no music. Our own emotions and state of mind often encode time, regret or nostalgia about the past, hope or dread about the future.

Jamie Oliver: Teach every child about food | TED Talk Subtitles and Transcript | TED.com

Plucked this excerpt, as of lately, well… yeah, cooking.

“…

Home. The biggest problem with the home is that used to be the heart of passing on food culture, what made our society. That is not happening anymore. And you know, as we go to work and as life changes, and as life always evolves, we kind of have to look at it holistically — step back for a moment, and re-address the balance.

What does doodling do? – Andrade – 2009 – Applied Cognitive Psychology – Wiley Online Library

Abstract

Doodling is a way of passing the time when bored by a lecture or telephone call. Does it improve or hinder attention to the primary task? To answer this question, 40 participants monitored a monotonous mock telephone message for the names of people coming to a party. Half of the group was randomly assigned to a ‘doodling’ condition where they shaded printed shapes while listening to the telephone call. The doodling group performed better on the monitoring task and recalled 29% more information on a surprise memory test. Unlike many dual task situations, doodling while working can be beneficial. Future research could test whether doodling aids cognitive performance by reducing daydreaming. Copyright © 2009 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

@CBS Sunday Morning footnoted their Cover Story for June 22nd 2014 with above; also mentioned Sunni Brown’s “Doodling Revolution” – all of it as I dared doodle at work recently.

Go figure (pun intended!)

And then it hits you – intersecting #SystemsSociology with #BusinessEngineering (Studies – one already out there as an #MBE)… howzabout kicking things up a few notches with a few splashes of Advanced #Simultaneity Research? (And making it the core of both the dissertation as well as the book?…)

#FeatureSchlock – thereby ye formed!
