The acceleration of acceleration towards increasing change.

The Colosseum Seen from the Southeast is a painting by Gaspar Van Wittel

In a recent conversation with John Verbaeke, Jordan Hall explains the concept of “ Paradigmatic Jerk ” which describes the increase in the acceleration of the occurrences of paradigmatic technological, cultural, social, political & economic changes in society and the relation of those with Joseph Tainter’s work.

I did an edit of Jordan’s very detailed explanation of this “Social Moore’s law” in which he also overlays it with generational and singularity theories.

For those who are interested in following content from these 2 bright thinkers… I will leave the full conversation and links to their youtube channels down below.
