On September 10, 2012 on a CEO Group, I responded to a lengthy thread and commented:
If I move away from consulting and enter into the discourse of a designer and inventor, it seems to me that we currently live in a process-oriented paradigm. This is something that has me literally throw away a lucrative practice, has me write a book, and design (an innovation that supports) a completely different paradigm for communication, accounting and a fundamental shift in relating to technology.
Our whole mode of working together in this linear, back and forth way, lacks transparency, immediacy of speculation, cooperation and collaboration. We have been trapped in devices, computers, systems, transmitting incrementally via email. Project management isn’t management at all, rather a vehicle for damage control. Given our existing methodology, which has been derived from thinking hundreds, thousands and even tens of thousands of years ago there seems to be no end or solution in sight.
I think Google (possibly Microsoft and Apple too … we will see) is catching a glimpse of a radical shift into a technological space where business process such as these completely disappear. The means of tracking utility, accumulation, and consumption (modern accounting) expands into a structural dimension where interactions real-time give an immediate moment-to-moment current future and the implications of value for projects, departments, regions, companies, and even nations.
The way we organize ourselves, the way we relate to others, ourselves, and organizations will alter dramatically. Does this sound like something difficult? It is actually very simple. The technology exists. The timing is perfect, as we will be connected to half of the people globally in the next year or so.
I am not going to spam. If you are interested in what I am speaking about, seek me out. I am a very visible public figure. Thank you for your attention.

Paul, followed up and sought me out. Our exchange went through several spaces. Anyway, let me start the interactions without prescribing any specific way to view it.

Hi Robert Gold,
I’m seeking you out to learn more from your prophetic post on LinkedIN……..I’m launching something based around mobile devices and can still be accessed via internet based website, but i know things will travel the route of “mobile’ in distribution and delivery of content in our future NOW. What technology are you referring to? Would you like to be an Angel Investor of ours? And we’d gladly be an investor of your technology as we grew and could have investment revenues set aside.

If the big three (Microsoft, Google, and Apple) coordinate and work together there will be an autonomous organization that will support the transition. The technology is very simple, most of which has been around for many years. Emerging technology plays an important role too.
I wrote a book which spells out a powerful shift … see: http://www.amazon.com/Dwelling-New-World-Life-Altering-ebook/dp/B008LRDGUU/ref=tmm_kin_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1347295295&sr=1-1

If I raise money it will be for international patents … around 3M.
About my seeming prophetic, it is easy to see the future more clearly when you invent it. I just worry about coming off arrogant. Many have issues with that
Go ahead and explore and yes it will likely alter your near term and long term plans. I just contacted all three companies legal departments. I expressed that this might occur unsettling for the top executives. Not as unsettling however than a foreign company developing this.
Contacting me after September 28th might not be wise. I am a scientist. I have professionals available to coordinate this shift in technology.
If you want to engage about this more, first educate yourself a little, okay? I am not interested in developing this it is too big of a shift for business.
If you know of employees of these companies, alert them. I have created a video with Eric Schmidt and will release a series of them very soon. Schmidt is very visible so he is my primary target

Nothing really groundbreaking here in your assessment of the evolution and meeting of social media with business marketing/sales/management, as Yammer and Facebook move closer to each other. I saw your charts and it reminded me of a college class I had back in 1996.
i’m not a critic, and never throw negatives at another person’s passions……………so I’m just asking the question here: WHERE IS THE BEEF? OR RATHER “INVENTION”?
If you’re trying to be vague as to not give away any secrets, you’re doing a GREAT JOB.
Okay, best of luck in your pursuit of happiness.

Thank you for writing and your assessment. I can understand if don’t want to take the time to read a book that powerfully reveals a reorientation in business and life. Everyone engages new scientific breakthroughs at different levels and though you might not be aware of a paradigm shift, your moments of engagement make a difference.

With all due respect Gold, to your hard efforts, I’m afraid the paradigm shift has already happened.
And any thoughts of Microsoft, Google, and Apple forming an alliance would never pass the Justice Dept. Google couldn’t even complete a deal for Groupon that would pass the Justice Department.
AT&T owns the satellites and leases the use of them to the GOVT, and IBM and Oracle have significantly more power shaping the future and being apart of any Paradigm shift that would include Microsoft and Apple. Google I’ll give you as having power, because it was created by our Govt., and funded by a branch of the CIA………but it runs on Oracle and the Android phones bounce signals off those AT&T location tracking devices, high in the sky, and an Oracle product stores the data for Google on IBM machines. Apple and Microsoft are not even in the equation.
I shake my head reading your words, with empathy, thinking “EYES WIDE SHUT”
You’re still thinking “Evolution” when you really ought to embrace if for what it is turning into: Revolution.

I really appreciate that you think you are aware of what might occur in months and years and not decades. I assert you aren’t.
We live in a paradigm of devices, websites, applications and so forth. People think social networks are the “shift.” This is a “Matrix” existence …
When we left covens and small familial groups as early as 12,000 years ago and expanded or organize ourselves into villages and tribes–this organization created severe problems. Familiar looks and gestures were no longer effective, a speaker/listener/information paradigm arose.
When we organized, rudimentary means to account for accumulation, consumption, utility, and so forth was required. We could no longer see resources and the earliest civilizations had to resolve this crisis. Knowing, information, understanding became very important.
Technology specialized, as villages were comprised of more specialized roles. The tools differed and became useful for these roles: cooking, hunting, farming, domesticated animals and so forth.
Today, we have simply expanded these ancient paradigms. They continue to change and evolve in complexity. Technology is still related to as tools, instruments and so forth. Accounting is still linear. Communication is still about “information.”
These three paradigms in months will radically shift.
Device-centricity, all this attention on “mobile devices” is just the existing paradigm perpetuating itself. The “information age,” Facebook, LinkedIn, websites, application … all of this is from the ancient discourse, our inheritance.
As Morpheus said, “The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work… when you go to church… when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.” … “That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else you were born into bondage. Into a prison that you cannot taste or see or touch. A prison for your mind.”
Paul, I am not saying that I have come up with the truth, far from it.
I have just reconstructed technology where devices, applications, websites and so forth don’t matter. What matters is that each moment, what you are engaged with, what you are interested in … immediately and intuitively gives you the people and resources that support your initiatives real-time. Humanity will shift from using technology, being distracted by it, to being powerfully engaged in life and work, living in “the zone” relatively free from distractions. We move from using things to the experience of the comfort of being at home each moment. [Shift is from device- to entity/interest-centric]
Communication has been reconstructed from speaker/listener/information into a three dimensional paradigm. In this paradigm, language, comprehension, and so on serves a small portion of our interactions in the world. We will gain an agent-type feedback loop (cybernetic) providing us with an unprecedented self-awareness as emotions play an important part of relating effectively.
Accounting and IT, almost a two-trillion dollar per year industry … oh well? I have reinvented what we account for. The future gains a clarity as each interaction changes it. What is accounted for is accountability and it is not limited to “things,” transactions, assets, finances, resources, and so on. It is no longer linear or some posterior activity. Rather it is a real-time accounting of our interactions.
I appreciate your challenging me and ask your permission to put this conversation string on a public blog. I will protect your identity. Hopefully, as the monk saying goes, you have emptied your mind to see something revolutionary. Algorithms are for complexity. Cybernetics is for simplicity. These are two different world, thus the title of my book, “Dwelling in a New World: Revealing a Life-Altering Technology.”
Thank you Paul.

Yes Robert, you can put this on public blog with my name. I think also you should realize that we were agreeing, then disagreeing, and then agreeing again, but in that last part we are agreeing, but agreeing to disagree. Hahahahahaha, it’s like as you are on one side of the coin, I am on the other, but we both agree the coin exists and it has 2 sides.
Your position is we are moving into this Matrix and I agree they are trying to make us evolve into that Matrix you describe, but this generation will resist it quite a bit more than you think, especially baby boomers, and this new generation younger than me (39) is adopting a life of simplicity, and LESS technology, and less gadgets around them, in their cars, in their homes, and quite a lot less HOME. The resistance is the “revolution” I speak of as being the stream of consciousness, in this “evolution” that you are describing that we cannot STOP……..and I do believe it will be STOPPED before we are transcended as you say into a paradigm shift that alters are everyday existence. I agree that man is trying to bend the universe to this way of thinking, to this plane of man’s reality, I just don’t think in the history of history, the universe went along willingly with all man’s plans and I don’t see the Universe going along with this “Matrix” you describe or my generation and younger succumbing to it. Baby Boomers, yes they invented this, they have always tried to change, recreate, fake up their reality……….but as you can see by the state of our economy, all their faking it up, can’t prevent the inevitable………..the universe will do things her way………technology be damned.
Just my opinions ofcourse, but backed up by everything that has happened since the beginning of time……..and I respectfully think your opinions are fascinating, but what you say is already happening, I’m saying will never happen. Not the way you’re describing. And I thank you for a “MIND OPENING” dialogue and many of your observations of the world as you relate them to an evolving social universe would make a great “Matrix 4″.
I enjoy talking to you. It’s not often I find someone that makes my brain ache in a good way.
