David Ronfeldt on the TIMN Framework
David Ronfeldt explains the evolution of governance: Tribes, Institutions (hierarchies), Markets, and Networks, each one is linked to a specific 'information revolution'
'The presentation proceeds in three segments. Segment One is about how TIMN got started. It provides background and a basic description of TIMN.
Segment Two is about how TIMN works. It relates my sense of TIMN’s system dynamics, emphasizing general propositions that hold across the evolution of all four TIMN forms.
Segment Three is about where TIMN is headed. It focuses on the rise of the network (N) form and prospects that a new sector may develop around it. It reflects recent posts at this blog about Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street, as well as about Red Toryism, P2P theory, and monitory democracy."
