Debt

Cash Ruins Everything Around Me, don't remember where I found this.

CREAM; Cash Ruins Everything Around Me.

 

It’s great to see Nick Leeson, a banker that was almost singlehandedly responsible for the fall of Barings Investment Bank while he was living in Singapore in the mid-1990s, talk about “More control, […] and regulation”. Anyway whether you agree with big banking or not he explains that they need more quality regulators to, sort out what the financial traders are cooking up in terms of financial instruments, that work within the bounds (or gray areas) of the laws and regulations whilst earning them large profits. I guess if the financial sector would want to regain the confidence of the general public; financial managers should be held publicly accountable for the losses they have caused the general public and through transparency the public should be informed about what kind of constructions should be avoided in the future.

Taking back the Net

Tech savvy entrepreneurs take back the network during the Occupy New York movement. They had developed a software / hardware solution to wirelessly network and spread information.

It seems like a very obvious next step for the makers that they develop a portable polling station to improve the accessibility of local voting on issues for instance in an area of a city. Imagine if at the general assembly demonstrators would have been allowed to vote via a server, it would be ingenious and empowering at the same time, minimizing the headache of direct-democracy and making decisions on the spot.

Warm Winter

Current events are unfolding Athens, Greece as a reaction to austerity measures.

Meanwhile Iceland (and their handling of the 2008-2012 economic crisis) has it’s own wikipedia entry.

“In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with its social function, art must show the world as changeable. And help to change it.” – Ernst Fischer



The ohm (Ω) is defined as a resistance between two points of a conductor when a constant potential difference of 1 volt, applied to these points, produces in the conductor a current of 1 ampere, the conductor not being the seat of any electromotive force.

Coincidentally;
Om or aum (written universally as ॐ; in Devanagari as ओं oṃ [õː], औं auṃ [ə̃ũ], or ओम् om [õːm]) is a mystical Sanskrit sound of Hindu origin, sacred and important in various Dharmic religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. The syllable is also referred to as omkara (ओंकार oṃkāra) or aumkara (औंकार auṃkāra), literally “om syllable”, and in Sanskrit it is sometimes referred to as प्रणव (praṇava), literally “that which is sounded out loudly”. via Wikipedia
