More about AXONomics: This blog is also connected with the thinking of Second Integral co-founders, Eric J. Hoffer and Pierre Gagnier. Second Integral is the name they have given to their analytical methodology for evaluating situations, and to the company they founded in 2006. Their primary focus has been on the enablement of knowledge barter – the invisible exchange of informational currency, allowing individuals to leverage, in their interactions, knowledge about and/or contributed by others who are party to related activities. The methodology adds a dimension to Value Network Analysis (VNA) through one of Hoffer and Gagnier’s information-enhancing methods, which they refer to as Activity Based Contextualization – or knowledge adding value to knowledge.
