Hi Jay,
I think the diagram is interesting but for one thing.
I don't agree about the rise of the individual under "People".
I think we are witnessing the rise of networks, new tribes of influence (Reference Mafessoli, "The Time of the Tribes") and the work of Manuel Castells; and in fact the decline of the Post-Modern individual.

Snoop, I don't disagree that we're seeing the rise of networks. Often, people are the nodes, and that's what empowers them. See my post on Tom Malone's work on this.

I should note that the mindmap is what strikes me as worth mulling over, not my position on each dimension.

Jay, did you mean "e pluribus unum" with a "b" not a "d" in that diagram?

Just checking to see if my readers are awake.

Scott Travers, a rare coin authority, talks of the nickel that's worth a lot more than a nickel:

"Most people are familiar with the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM on U.S. coins, even though many don't know what it means (it's a Latin phrase meaning "Out of many, one," and signifies that out of my states, one nation has been forged in this country). But often, familiarity breeds inattentiveness. That's why many collectors didn't notice at first when 1964-D Jefferson nickels appeared with PLURIBUS misspelled as PLURIDUS. Heavy polishing of one or more dies had caused the center of the letter "B" to become obliterated, leading to this interesting error."
