Fave idea of the week : April 11th, 2008

 During a discussion about companies and how they are structured/how they change/how they move, Rachel reminded me of the all-important feature of slime mold: they know when to signal.   

It’s handy advice for many contexts: when you’re driving, if you’re making a role change in a company, when a company decides to change direction, when you need rescue from an alien planet, and if you’re an ant and you’ve found the motherlode of sugar.

Signals keep us together. Signals keep us safe. Don’t forget to signal.
