Human Networks: Connect on Similarities—Benefit from Differences with Valdis Krebs
Did you know that the word “Network” has 43 meanings? Yep, 43. Like the case with so many words, there are many meanings. It’s important to be specific and clear about what we’re discussing. During this conversation, host Craig James and his guest Valdis Krebs, a Data Scientist, explore the fascinating topic of Human Networks.
Human Networks can look and act like other networks, such as electrical networks. But when it comes to Human Networks—there are important differences. Human Networks rely on relationship, trust and quality connection.
In our era of hyper-connection and “promiscuous linking” we may lose sight of what’s good, or bad—when we connect. Connections can infect us, or protect us. They can build bridges, or separate us. They can spread useful information… or proliferate disinformation.
It’s important to be thoughtful as we network and connect.
We can connect on our similarities—and benefit from our differences.
It’s up to us.
