Entovation Knowledge City Principles
- Knowledge Purpose: The purpose of the knowledge game is the optimization of human capital, intellectual capital including intellectual property, social capital, relationship capital, and intangible values.
- Knowledge Symmetry: The principles of knowledge development apply to all knowledge network formations be they in the form of an individual (synaptic network), a firm, a group of cooperating enterprises, a knowledge cluster, a knowledge island, a knowledge city or a knowledge nation.
- Knowledge Commerce: If it takes a village to make a mall, and community precedes commerce, so too is the Knowledge City an antecedent to more robust and expanded Knowledge-Based Commerce & Exchange.
- New Growth Medium: Knowledge-Based Urban development is the perfect new medium in which to grow more livable, stimulating, cleaner, intelligent, enlightened, tolerant and meaningful communities world-wide.
- Abundant Economy: The Knowledge City is the first new urban formation tailored for the needs of a new economy predicated on an abundance economic model as opposed to a scarcity model. In a knowledge economy ideas rule and there are infinite recipes for innovation and new wealth creation.
- Knowledge-to-Democracy: Not since the historical Greek Polis, has a new urban formation been so prospective for Democracy, as is the emerging Knowledge City If the means of production now truly reside in the minds of the producers then there will spread more equality of opportunity, since anyone can have a great idea.
- Knowledge Fusion: The Knowledge City is the culmination and synthesis and reintegration of the “creative city” and the “science city” where arts and sciences become unified in a uniquely human twenty-first century urban ecology. To focus on one without the other would not be smart.
- Boundary-less Intellectual Capital: The Knowledge City though it may be grounded in space and time, is ultimately unbounded by space and time, and this gives it greater potential global richness and reach.
- Knowledge Governance: In an era where there is growing unease, dissatisfaction and distrust in current governance regimes, the Knowledge City can facilitate new forms of Citizenship in which openness, transparency, accountability, and recall, replace fear, cynicism, fraud, and the knowledge gap expressed so often in “Who Knew”?
- Knowledge Enabling Grid: Knowledge grids will emerge as the perfect technology matrix to complement the Knowledge City and will enable the networking of human intellect on a peer to peer basis.
