Modeling the emergence of affective polarization in the social media society.

Read of the day - nerd fun with agend based modeling leads to alarming results:

The big social networks destroy democracy and and societies in general.

Offizielle Geschichte von Schlachten und Adelshäusern, schick gemacht für den zeitgenössischen Narrativ ist das eine. Mindestens genauso spannend: Sprachgeschichte, hier die mehrere Tausend Jahre währende Geschichte Lateins. Auch eine andere Geschichte Europas. Sehr lesenswert, aber eher für Nerds.

Sehr hörenswerter Podcast vom Philosophie-Magazin Sein und Streit (DLF Kultur) zum Thema Digitaler Kapitalismus, Plattform-Ökonomie, Algorithmen und die Reaktion der Politik darauf.

Sanna Koivu collected some thoughts on the popular communication frameworks: Non-violent communications and Clean Language.
Both feel very artificial and stiff at the beginning and should used with care and training.
I made good experiences with borrowing from Clean Language and Clean Setup, esp. in situations of conflict, mediation or coaching.
