I just received an email from John Hagel informing me that I am among the inaugural class of what he and John Seeley Brown call the Edgerati. According the website, “Edgerati are people who venture out onto various edges, engage with participants on those edges, develop deep insight from their involvement on the edge and report back to the rest of the world what they have learned.” I’m glad to learn that what I had always thought to be the fringe or the margin is actually the edge. (Actually, I’m genuinely flattered.) Among the other Edgerati is one Nicolai Foss.

    Congratulations, Professor.

    So, did you really venture out onto the edges to engage with those folks? Or were you out there to begin with?

    ‘Edge’ is too narrow, it implies too big a gulf, too hard a border between disciplines. ‘Ecotone’ is a better word for this.
