Joi Ito of MIT Media Lab:
Ito: There are nine or so principles to work in a world like this:
 1. Resilience instead of strength, which means you want to yield and allow failure and you bounce back instead of trying to resist failure.
 2. You pull instead of push. That means you pull the resources from the network as you need them, as opposed to centrally stocking them and controlling them.
 3. You want to take risk instead of focusing on safety.
 4. You want to focus on the system instead of objects.
 5. You want to have good compasses not maps.
 6. You want to work on practice instead of theory. Because sometimes you don’t know why it works, but what is important is that it is working, not that you have some theory around it.
 7. It’s disobedience instead of compliance. You don’t get a Nobel Prize for doing what you are told. Too much of school is about obedience, we should really be celebrating disobedience.
 8. It’s the crowd instead of experts.
 9. It’s a focus on learning instead of education.
We’re still working on it, but that is where our thinking is headed.

10. It’s about people, not technology.
