Reinventors Network804,187Here'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 20:00:00193 
Reinventors Network804,187Tim 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

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.

I'm going to be interviewing Marc Goodman, author of the amazing book Future Crimes via hangout this afternoon - 4pm Eastern, 1 pm Pacific. Marc takes us into the underworld of the future (happening now), where criminals are early adopters ("Moore's Law and Moore's Outlaws" is the provocative chapter of one title.)  We'll explore the risks and the resilience of the next stage of technology.

Tweet your questions for the chat with the hashtag #FutureCrimesConvo, and start reading Future Crimes now: www.futurecrimes.com

In FUTURE CRIMES, one of the world’s leading authorities on global security, Marc Goodman, takes readers deep into the digital underground to expose the alarming ways criminals, corporations, and even countries are using new and emerging technologies against you—and how this makes everyone more vulnerable than ever imagined. 

Marc Goodman will be in conversation with Tim O'Reilly, CEO of O'Reilly Media. Since 1978, Tim O'Reilly has been a chronicler and catalyst of leading-edge development, honing in on the technology trends that really matter and galvanizing their adoption by amplifying "faint signals" from the alpha geeks who are creating the future. His company is publisher of the iconic "animal books" for software developers, creator of the first commercial website (GNN), organizer of the summit meeting that gave the open source software movement its name, and he was a key figure in the "Web 2.0" renaissance after the dot com bust, focusing the industry on the role of data rather than software in driving competitive advantage in the next generation of applications.___I'm going to be interviewing Marc Goodman, author of the amazing book Future Crimes via hangout this afternoon - 4pm Eastern, 1 pm Pacific.

Absolutely fascinating exploration of the microbiome of a city.

For those who don't know what the microbiome is, the article defines it with some interesting statistics:

"Typically, every person is home to about a hundred trillion microbial cells bearing five million different genes, totaling about 5 pounds of micro-organisms per person. Indeed, microbes in and on the body outnumber human cells about 10 to one.

“You are a minority party in the democracy of the body,” Dr. Mason said.

"The body’s collection of microbes, called the microbiome, influences health in ways that researchers are only beginning to understand. They may be key to proper digestion, vitamin synthesis and brain function, new research suggests. Changes among the millions of microbes living in the human stomach also may promote obesity, trigger ulcers or affect how well a fluvacci... more »

Absolutely fascinating exploration of the microbiome of a city.

They may be key to proper digestion, vitamin synthesis and brain function, new research suggests. Changes among the millions of microbes living in the human stomach also may promote obesity, trigger ulcers or affect how well a flu vaccine works."

The article describes a research project to explore signs of this microbiome expressed on surfaces throughout the NYC subways.

My two favorite quotes:

“A city is like an organism,” said IBM Corp. computational biologist Robert Prill, who is among those at the company investigating ways to better collect and analyze these immense new public-health genome databases. “It has a circulating system consisting of the movement of people.”

and

“We know next to nothing about the ecology of urban environments,” said evolutionary biologist Jonathan Eisen at the University of California at Davis. “How will we know if there is something abnormal if we don’t know what normal is?”___

The best definition of Freudian psychoanalysis I've ever seen, from poet W.H. Auden:

"...he merely told
the unhappy Present to recite the Past
like a poetry lesson till sooner or later
it faltered at the line where
long ago the accusations had begun..."

Quoted in Richard Greene's introduction to the Collector's Library edition of Graham Greene's Ministry of Fear.

(I found the book a bit odd, but compelling.)

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.

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 was part of the group that worked on this report, though I played a very minor role in actually writing it.)

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.
