Culture Technology is the explicit awareness of the subconscious factors that affect human behavior. To design, iterate and improve upon culture, one must become sensitive to the properties that influence human psychology and performance.
The health of a community can be determined by observing several dominant characteristics which influence a networked communities health:
- Status Routing
- Incentive Structure
- Tendency toward cooperation
- Communication bandwidth
- Collective creativity
- Data Transparency
- Fun | Play
Communities that tend towards heightened information transparency and trust, are fertile ground for expressions of collective creativity. Indeed, the most vibrant technical communities are shaped by Enhanced Anthropology.

Crafting a Designer Culture
This guide to engineering state-of-the-art innovation environments will explore key aspects of culture formation, network dynamics and social psychology. Culture is more than an emergent property of human relationships, it is a versatile tool for structuring precision teams and purpose driven organizations. Mastery over culture is a delicate choreography of incentives and stimulus applied to complex social ecosystems.
Communities are in many ways open air social laboratories. Most, depend entirely on serendipity for the formation of complex relationships between members. This approach is passive and prone to cultural fragmentation when new communities and ideas are introduced. With effective social instrumentation, community organizers can now evaluate the health and culture of their networks with precision. This instrumentation can be used to shape interactions between individuals and large groups by nudging members towards desirable psychological expression like cooperation, healthy competition, play and humor.
To design a functioning artificial culture, the following prerequisites must be satisfied:
- High resolution perspective on individual member competencies.
- A common goal or interest that is shared by the group.
- Incentive structure for rewarding the desired behaviors.
