    I see collaboration as one of the absolutely key aspects of human society. The ability to effectively collaborate could almost be the very definition of society including things like families, tribes, companies, teams, etc.

    In my current thinking, effective collaboration requires four things: trust, safety, shared goals, and communications. Furthermore, I believe that we humans are barely at the infancy of developing the technologies of collaboration, that what we have now is just an inkling of what we will have in 100 years, 200 years, etc.

    So Cory I am fascinated that you would write that “Collaboration is the new greed.” Would you please expand on that?

    Brent Riggs’ website is full of homophobic drivel.

    Ugh!

    I’m sure a lot of his readers will use this site (Scitable) to promote their belief in ID and try to promote it as a science.

    BrentRiggs sounds like the name of a geographical area of the North Sea.

    Neat idea. Pity that they only have 1 topic currently (genetics). Maybe they’ll expand it later.

    Nature Magazine, which should be the stodgiest of the stodgiest

    That’s probably Science Magazine.

    Nature is more like The Economist but for scientists. (or those willing to read research abstracts before they’re summarized in Scientific American ala Reader’s Digest.)

    BrentRiggs @3, don’t use signatures in your comments, or post links back to your website. We welcome comments about the posts, but not bland, meaningless comments designed to advertise your site.

    Nature isn’t entirely stodgy. It has let the UK’s Resource Centre for Women in SET use its Second Life island for virtual events.

    ZuZu, I think you’ll find that the Economist is generally thought of as the most conservative publication of its sort. So Nature would be more like Forbes.
