Allopatric speciation as model of evolution in distributed teams

A few speclusions

Necessity and conditions for a fecund flow of ideas.

  • Flux of ideas isn't enough
  • species criteria : fecund descendants :

  • You want an exchange of fecund ideas
  • Fecund ideas are capables of producing new ideas when combining with others.
  • Obstacles :
  • -Too similar : nothing new
    Too different : rejected
    (cf sympatric speciation)

  • Recombination and idea flux possible if :
  • -Different ideas

One can only learn from those we consider worth listening to !
