Origin of the name Society3
With our earliest form of a society back in ancient Egypt, humanity developed gradually and grew with only little evolutionary advancements. Preservation and transportation of knowledge was one of the most critical aspects in this early society to be able to advance.
The first major and revolutionary advancement happened when Gutenberg invented the printing press and enabled an explosion of knowledge dissemination. This invention accelerated the advancement of mankind more than all the invention before.
The second major enhancement happened during the industrial revolution. People formed close collaborating groups producing goods on one place. And again knowledge distribution accelerated by order of magnitude. Any step in the production chain could be followed from start to finish, mistakes could be instantly corrected and almost any item could be mass produced at a cost and in a time like never before. While the steam engine was a key technology – it was the organizational concept of collaborating in a company that sparked the second explosion of knowledge.
Now the third major enhancement is enabled by Social Media. Today anybody can work with everybody in a virtual environmental with no time lack, no travel and no physical limitations. Any conceivable information is instantly and typically freely available and immediately accessible. And our collaboration space has expand to be the world, connected by the Internet and is no longer limited by a manufacturing building. This third evolutionary step of knowledge and influence dissemination in our Society is the origin of our company name – Society3.
