Reinventors Network794,573Here's a really hard problem that Larry Lessig is not sure how to solve: "Let's assume we've got a fundamentally corrupt government, in the precise sense that the dependence upon "funders" corrupts the intended dependence upon "the people alone," and that too many within that system are too deeply connected to it to push for its change. That means any effective movement for change has got to come from the outside. How would a grassroots movement in the Internet Age create the pressure such a change would require? How would the people who brought the Internet to scale tackle this problem?"Joining Larry in his effort is a veritable who's who of internet know-how, the folks who have built & scaled networks for change: internet pioneer Tim O'Reilly, Change.org Founder Ben Rattray, Moveon.org Executive Director Anna Galland, VC Brad Burnham, Executive Producer of TED Media June Cohen, Bram Cohen, creator of BitTorrent, and Markos Moulitsas, Founder of Daily Kos. Reinvent Money in Politics2013-07-11 20:00:00195 
Reinventors Network794,573Tim O'Reilly has some big ideas about how to dramatically modernize government regulation, from "algorithmic regulation" that harnesses computer power much like top tech companies in Silicon Valley to peer-to-peer self-regulation, where citizens increasingly take over from government bureaucrats, like relying more on Yelp-like reviews to keep an eye on restaurants. For more on the frame of the conversation in this virtual roundtable as well as who will be participating, check out the dedicated page linked below. Reinventors is a series of virtual roundtables done over the new medium of group video about how to fundamentally reinvent many of our 20th-century systems to work in the new realities of our 21st-century world. Each week we take on a new topic in our inaugural project to Reinvent America. Check out www.reinventors.net to learn more.Reinvent Regulation with Tim O'Reilly2013-04-23 20:00:00132

Gregg Lantz2,962Tomorrow is a taxing day here in the United States. You get to decide if you want to buy Glass (sorry IRS). If you're not sure and would like to know what others are saying, add this circle.  You'll be able to look at public posts from people that use Glass and people that purchased Glass and put it on the shelf while software was being developed. You'll get both sides of the story. Hopefully this circle will help make the decision process a little easier. Don't forget to post your questions with #askanexplorer  so  people can chime in and help answer your questions. #glassexplorers   #throughglass   #sharedcircles   #circleshare   #wearables   #wearabletech   #glasswaiters  2014-04-14 21:08:59425105

For that reason, I have about 100 people in this circle that I would almost bet you will not share this circle. I would bet you, $1 a head on those that will not share. You have to bet on all 100 though. I’ll subtract a dollar for each one I get wrong. HahaI also will not add everyone that shares my circle to my shared circles. I have a massive database of trolls and spammers. I am constantly updating that.  They are not here.  It includes about 4000 people. It is constantly updated.  Send people in my circles or communities, community invites and other spam and you’ll soon find yourself blocked. If they are not following you, I really dislike that.  If you’re doing it, I will know and you will soon be gone.I don’t need to be the number one most shared circle to the point that it means loading you up with a ton of people I wouldn’t follow. I won’t do it.This is a circle made up of mostly of those that are known to share circles. However there are also over 100 profiles with incredible content or promote worthy causes. Most profiles are from those that have shared my circles in the past.A few of the featured profiles are:+Save the Children USA  +Institute for Veterans and Military Families +Veterans of Foreign Wars  +Habitat for Humanity+Alan Shapiro  an extraordinary photography with an awesome sense of humor.+Regina Pagles  with her awesome portraits +NASA +SETI Institute  For the Circle Sharers To remain or be added to this Circle do this:Plus this post. One of these days we will get 500 plusses!  Comment on this postShare this CircleAdd this Circle to your circles When you get re-shares of circles that you share, you’ll find that you are in more circles.  It is in your best interest to share it to your stream and tell others about the benefits of shared circles. Are You New to Circle Sharing?Here ar2014-04-02 14:35:54500291244303

My family includes vaccine deniers.  This one is for them, and for far too many others. Funny how fear works.  We're terrified of #Ebola (true, there are a lot of unknowns, and very high mortality if you get it), but tens of thousands die annually from the flu, 50 million died in the 1918 outbreak - and there is a vaccine that can help protect you.  I get mine every year. So should you.

This was my favorite piece in this Sunday's New York Times. It's a fascinating article about CBW, a tiny bank in Kansas, that has become a laboratory for financial innovation with a focus on better user experience.

"The creation of the new bank, and the maintenance of the old one, are the work of a couple who were born in India and ended up in Kansas after living in Silicon Valley and passing through jobs at Google and Lehman Brothers....

"Their work is an unusual experiment: a new kind of mom-and-pop business trying to reshape a highly regulated and innovation-resistant industry. The new services that CBW is providing, like instant payments to any bank in the United States, direct remittance transfers abroad and specialized debit cards, might seem as if they should be painless upgrades in an age of high-frequency trading and interplanetary space missions.

This was my favorite piece in this Sunday's New York Times. It's a fascinating article about CBW, a tiny bank in Kansas, that has become a laboratory for financial innovation with a focus on better user experience.

"The creation of the new bank, and the maintenance of the old one, are the work of a couple who were born in India and ended up in Kansas after living in Silicon Valley and passing through jobs at Google and Lehman Brothers....

"Their work is an unusual experiment: a new kind of mom-and-pop business trying to reshape a highly regulated and innovation-resistant industry. The new services that CBW is providing, like instant payments to any bank in the United States, direct remittance transfers abroad and specialized debit cards, might seem as if they should be painless upgrades in an age of high-frequency trading and interplanetary space missions. But with most banks, it still takes longer to send money to another country or even to another state than it does to travel the same distance."

I was particularly struck by this paragraph, which reminded me of the fundamental game plan that we practice on government with the Code for America Fellowship:

"As he and his wife had hoped, buying an established institution allowed them to examine how money transfers and payment technology worked in a traditional bank — something that was hard to see in detail from the outside — and to consider how to make changes.

"His first discovery was that nearly all banks rely on a few big, and not terribly agile, outside vendors to provide all the software that makes bank computer systems work. Mr. Ramamurthi found a small technology provider that would be more flexible and allow him to begin tweaking the software...."

Get inside, figure out how it works now. Then start to iterate towards change, making the institution more flexible, and able to meet real user needs.___

If  told you that any K-12 student in the US can get full access to all O'Reilly books and videos via a free Safari subscription, you'd be looking for the catch.  There isn't one (except that it's only open to US students - sorry. If anyone has ideas about how we can validate young people in other countries, we can explore adding them.

 +Andrew Savikas explains how this came about. Congratulations to the Safari team, especially +Keith Fahlgren, who took the bit in his teeth and figured out how to make this happen.  I particularly like how the Safari team figured out how to make this an internet self-service play rather than something we had to work through bureaucratic channels.

And thanks to the folks at the White House, who used their convening power to get a whole lot of donations to help kickstart better STEM education in America.

I like Michael Lewis' latest piece, about how happiness comes more from giving than from getting more, and that that is a lesson that is most needed by the very  rich.  He discusses it in the context of personal happiness, but also with regard to politics:

"The grotesque inequality between the haves and the have-nots is seldom framed as a problem that the haves might privately help to resolve. Instead, it is a problem the have-nots must persuade their elected officials to do something about, presumably against the wishes of the haves."

Johnny McGuire, the owner of the wonderful Bricin restaurant in Killarney, told me how moved he was by this piece my brother James wrote many years ago about my dad and Ireland, so I found it for him and reread it myself, and then read it aloud to my family gathered at Bricin for dinner - my brothers James and Frank, my brother-in-law John Ciskanik and his son Johnny, James' daughter Mary, my mom, my Aunt Maureen and her friends Maureen and Paddy Chevins.

It is a moving piece about the magic of Ireland.

Incidentally, the painting of Torc Mountain referred to in the story was by Sean O'Connor.  We were eating dinner in a room filled with O'Connor's paintings, which is what led Johny McGuire to inquire about James' story.

This piece about @jgrahamc's campaign to get the UK gov to apologize to Alan Turing shows why +Steven Levy's Backchannel on Medium is so great at telling the inside story of events and people that matter in tech. 

I am delighted that I was able to turn Steven on to John Graham Cumming's story, which demonstrates how a geek with a cause can use his skills to make a big difference.

View of Torc, which rises over Muckross Lake, from atop a ruin in Killarney. Stunning!

I grew up with a painting of Torc above my family's living room mantel, a reminder of where my father grew up.  He is now thirty years buried within view of that mountain.

Advice on speechwriting from my 80+ year old Irish aunt: "Try to write a very good first line. And then try to write a very good last line. And then try to put them as close together as possible."  Love it!

We were swapping stories about brevity. I shared Blaise Pascal's famous line, "I have made this longer than usual because I have not had time to make it shorter" and told the story I'd heard attributed to Woodrow Wilson.  When asked how long it took him to prepare for a five minute speech, he said "About two weeks."  Astonished listener: "Well, then, how long does it take you to prepare for an hour-long speech?" Wilson:  "Oh, I could do that right now."

But I think she topped me with her anecdote, apparently from a priest who said it about his technique for writing sermons.

UN Draft report on the use of data for sustainable development. It's very good already, but they are looking for comment from people who know a lot about big data, and who care that it is used properly by government and NGOs to make a better world.

I just started using Inbox, and I've been impressed so far!

Gmail is ten years old and it was time to update it for the mobile world and generally make it more Googley.   So do some rethinking, add a lot of AI, take advantage of phone smarts, tap into the Google Now backend, and you've got Inbox, an app built on top of Gmail that you use instead of Gmail.  My report....___I just started using Inbox, and I've been impressed so far!

The 10-year contract for the US recreation.gov site  is up for renewal, and the Department of the Interior had promised an RFP for a new contract that conformed with the open data mandate. If it were consistent with the Obama open data guidance, that RFP would require an API so that independent companies could provide alternate interfaces, just like travel sites provide booking interfaces for air travel, hotels, and more. 

Unfortunately, as drafted, the RFP allows the winning contractor to determine whether an API is feasible — meaning the company that benefits most from keeping all the reservations to itself  has the authority to do so. And the draft even removes data that is currently accessible — availability data — from public sharing. So, it’s a huge step backward, and completely out of step with the administration’s open data policy.

The founder of Hipcamp, Alyssa Ravasio, has written up some thoughts on how this RFP could be improved that I want to share with you. And after reading them, I’m hoping you will be moved to send comments asking the Department of the Interior to reconsider their RFP.

Comments on this draft are accepted via email to jasonmking@fs.fed.us through Wednesday October 22. Please send your comments.___

My family includes vaccine deniers.  This one is for them, and for far too many others. Funny how fear works.  We're terrified of #Ebola (true, there are a lot of unknowns, and very high mortality if you get it), but tens of thousands die annually from the flu, 50 million died in the 1918 outbreak - and there is a vaccine that can help protect you.  I get mine every year. So should you.

A sobering read, especially when you walk around cities and still see people washing their cars and sidewalks, watering their lawns (heck, overwatering their lawns), and generally acting like there is no drought.

This article really brings it home.  The URL says it all:  "Why the California Drought is All Your Fault"

It's wonderful to see the program shaping up for the East Bay Mini Maker Faire in Oakland next Sunday.  As I wrote recently on twitter, this is the Maker Faire that Goldilocks prefers:  Not too big. Not too small. Just right.

You need a full weekend to get through one of the big Maker Faires properly.  This one you can enjoy in an afternoon (though you may find yourself wanting to stay the full day!)

We had about 5000 people last year and over 170 Makers/Exhibitors/Performers, so come early!

Can We Use Data to Make Better Regulations?

Evgeny Morozov either misunderstands or misrepresents the key point of my piece on Algorithmic Regulation.  In his recent New Yorker article about big data and regulation, he summarizes my view as "collect as much relevant data from as many sources as possible, analyze them in real time, and make an optimal decision based on the current circumstances rather than on some idealized projection."

In fact, my article is about building regulations that do a better job of achieving their  long term idealized outcome!  Morozov has  got it precisely backwards.

Here's what I actually said on the subject.  The article opens:

"Regulation is the bugaboo of today’s politics. We have too much of it in most areas, we have too little of it in others, but mostly, we just have the wrong kind, amounta... more »

Can We Use Data to Make Better Regulations?

In fact, my article is about building regulations that do a better job of achieving their  long term idealized outcome!  Morozov has  got it precisely backwards.

Here's what I actually said on the subject.  The article opens:

"Regulation is the bugaboo of today’s politics. We have too much of it in most areas, we have too little of it in others, but mostly, we just have the wrong kind, a mountain of paper rules, inefficient processes, and little ability to adjust the rules or the processes when we discover the inevitable unintended results.

"Consider, for a moment, regulation in a broader context. Your car’s electronics regulate the fuel-air mix in the engine to find an optimal balance of fuel efficiency and minimal emissions. An airplane’s autopilot regulates the countless factors required to keep that plane aloft and heading in the right direction. Credit card companies monitor and regulate charges to detect fraud and keep you under your credit limit. Doctors regulate the dosage of the medicine they give us, sometimes loosely, sometimes with exquisite care, as with the chemotherapy required to kill cancer cells while keeping normal cells alive, or with the anesthesia that keeps us unconscious during surgery while keeping vital processes going. ISPs and corporate mail systems regulate the mail that reaches us, filtering out spam and malware to the best of their ability. Search engines regulate the results and advertisements they serve up to us, doing their best to give us more of what we want to see.

"What do all these forms of regulation have in common?

"A deep understanding of the desired outcome

"Real-time measurement to determine if that outcome is being achieved

"Algorithms (i.e. a set of rules) that make adjustments based on new data

"Periodic, deeper analysis of whether the algorithms themselves are correct and performing as expected.

"There are a few cases—all too few—in which governments and quasi-governmental agencies regulate using processes similar to those outlined above. Probably the best example is the way that central banks regulate the money supply in an attempt to manage interest rates, inflation, and the overall state of the economy. Surprisingly, while individual groups might prefer the US Federal Reserve to tighten or loosen the money supply at a different time or rate than they do, most accept the need for this kind of regulation.

"Why is this?

"The desired outcomes are clear

"There is regular measurement and reporting as to whether those outcomes are being achieved, based on data that is made public to everyone

"Adjustments are made when the desired outcomes are not being achieved

"Contrast this with the normal regulatory model, which focuses on the rules rather than the outcomes. How often have we faced rules that simply no longer make sense? How often do we see evidence that the rules are actually achieving the desired outcome?"

This is a great piece about misuse of data driving public discourse about cell phones and driving fatalities.  There is a much stronger correlation, for example, between pickup trucks and driving fatalities.

Homework: An Unnecessary Evil

Alfie Kohn's first footnote perfectly captures my feelings (although he doesn't argue those points.)  Most primary school homework is an abomination  As a parent, I constantly resented my kids' school telling us how we should spend our time, and then, even worse, making such terrible choices on how we should spend it.  

As I've often noted to friends, my brothers and sisters who homeschooled their kids spent less time doing that than we spent just on homework, with equivalent results - kids who went on to college and successful lives.

Something is very wrong.  Here Alfie Kohn explains that there is no correlation between time spent on homework and either test scores or grades.

Marilynne Robinson's Gilead is one of my favorite books ever.  I have re-read some passages dozens of times, and keep a copy on my phone to savor periodically. So I was excited to see an interview with her in the Sunday New York Times. 

It wasn't as good as I hoped - authors rarely live up to their books - but it got better as it went along (read to the end!) and  there were a couple of gems:

"people are too poorly suited to life in the world for this to be the definitive human condition."

Lovely.

And she also quotes one of the many lovely lines from Gilead: "It all means more than I can tell you. So you must not judge what I know by what I find words for."

I'm bummed I had a conflict and couldn't be there for the moment!  Governor Jerry Brown endorses my friend +Libby Schaaf for Mayor of Oakland.  I a big Libby fan.  She's got practical common sense, a focus on implementation (which, as everyone in tech knows, often makes a bigger difference than the idea you start with), and a deep desire to  to drive decisions by working backwards from the needs of Oakland's citizens.
