Only knowledge will I save, to the game you stay a slave
Rover, wanderer, nomad, vagabond
Call me what you will

But I’ll take my time anywhere
Free to speak my mind anywhere
And I’ll redefine anywhere

“Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph.”

attributed to Haile Selassie I

“Moor your craft higher up than the enemy, and facing the sun. Do not move up-stream to meet the enemy. So much for river warfare.”

Sun Tzu’s The Art of War, 9.6: The Army and the March.

Protest Based Stimulus

Although I’m only directly influenced by the US of A’s foreign policy, the US of A’s internal politics mean nothing to me. However, the following program was so inspirational that I almost wanted to tweet about it.

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. These financial instruments work within the bounds (or gray areas) of the laws and regulations whilst earning the traders 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.

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.
