My previous post was essentially about different worldviews reflected/reinforced in differing views of “complexity”. Before I am done my guest blogger stint, I will post about differing worldviews of “systems”. Today, while doing some research about a Drupal site I am designing, I came across a great post about how our worldview reflects/reinforces our use of the Web – specifically “Web 2.0”.
David Wilcox quotes Jack Martin Leith and David Gurteen about “Worldview 2.0”:
Worldview 2 is the emerging worldview. In this scheme of things the world is seen as an ecosystem.… The W2 worldview is based largely on complexity science and the various branches of systems theory… This is in contrast to Worldview 1 … in which the world is seen as a huge machine.
