It is hard to predict with any certainty just exactly how AI will alter "learning" and "teaching" in the education system. The only thing I can feel confident in saying is that the education institutions (including school boards, government departments of education, etc) will not be early adopters of AI. That would be unfortunate as innovative approaches to personalized learning (via AI) could support students in ways that we could not have foreseen.

Couldn't agree more. Education systems embrace the principle of linearity in their pedagogical models. While this is helpful in measuring student progress in "learning" it severely limits the students' ability to understand the nature and nuances of complex systems.

Excellent and thoughtful article. Makes me wonder if some of the recent advances in AI tools (text-to-image generators, etc) can be adopted in the practice of speculative design? I, for one, would like to see more AI-generated images instead of boring Post-It-Notes used in design sprints.

This post has a simple yet spot-on message "start more stuff" echoing Marc Andreessen's 2020 essay "It's Time to Build". If we shift to framing entrepreneurship in terms of building and creating "stuff" rather than the more narrow view of the ins-and-outs of starting a business venture, it could do wonders to re-ignite the "lack of grassroots dynamism" noted by Edmund Phelps in his wonderful book "Mass Flourishing".

Really enjoying reading your posts on these topics. Been thinking a lot on the topics you cover: community-building (weaving), network effects, co-creation, designing for participation and contribution, etc. Interestingly, there are many parallels in community weaving with the practices adopted in successful open source software projects.
