Phi Beta Iota is an Epoch B organization in which individual membership and chapter affiliation are free and the global virtual network thrives on the basis of information-sharing, aggregate sense-making, and trust.
Below are three depictions:
Collective Intelligence (Humanities side of the World Brain) and Cognitive Science (Science side of the World Brain)
Organizational Intelligence and the three “junior” quadrants of knowledge management, social networking, and external information acquisition
Human Intelligence (HUMINT) as a “Full Spectrum” approach to engaging all minds all the time
Any organization, both formal and informal may become a Phi Beta Iota affiliated chapter. All that is required is contact information, an affirmation of commitment to the highest standards of integrity in creating public intelligence in the public interest, and the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) for the Chapter home page on the web, which is authorized the use of Phi Beta Iota for so long as the site is linked from this website. Acceditation consists of visual acknowledgement through the direct link.
