Reinventors Network794,688Here'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

At this moment in history, we are standing right on the edge of the transformation to a robotic nation. It is fascinating to stand on this edge and think about what the robots will mean to us as citizens of the United States."

Our Future Societies: Beyond Dualism

"The narrative I choose, in order to navigate this ever-expanding domain, is one of co-creation. I choose empathy. I choose love."
-- +Gunther Sonnenfeld 

What could possibly be more fitting to amplify on the darkest day of the year, than love? And, since we have developed these digital tools, to connect clear across the planet, we are beginning to realize that our suffering, stems in no small part from outdated beliefs - eg the one I snuck in here already, as if the Northern Hemisphere darkest day spiehl, is somehow THE perspective. In Australia, in South Africa, it's not.  :)

As for our future societies, what if they will be co-created, starting right here, right now?

"We made it? What happened? We happened."

Because we could.

8,000-year-old olive oil found in ancient clay pots

Ancient people pressed olive oil as far back as 8,000 years ago in Israel, a new study finds. Researchers found residues of the Mediterranean-diet staple on ancient clay pots dating back to the 6th millennium B.C. "This is the earliest evidence of the use of olive oil in the country, and perhaps the entire Mediterranean basin," Ianir Milevski and Nimrod Getzov, excavation directors at the Israel Antiquities Authority, said in a statement.

BitTorrent Opens Alpha For Maelstrom, Its New, Distributed, Torrent-Based Web Browser

BitTorrent, the peer-to-peer file sharing company, is today opening an alpha test for its latest stab at disrupting — or at least getting people to rethink — how users interact with each other and with content over the Internet. Project Maelstrom is BitTorrent’s take on the web browser: doing away with centralised servers, web content is instead shared through torrents on a distributed network.

Carry is Massively Disruptive to the Traditional Shipping Market

Every day there are millions of people flying commercial airlines across the globe – why not take advantage of that? Carry has today announced the launch of their new service that connects people who want to ship things with travelers who can carry the packages for them.

“As a carrier, you’ll be providing a premium experience for shippers,” says Peter SerVaas, co-founder of Carry. “In beta testing, shippers saved an average of over 60 percent compared to traditional shipping options. Similarly, carriers have earned an average of $500 towards their travel.”

Gut Microbiota Influences Blood Brain Barrier Permeability

Full article at http://neurosciencenews.com/blood-brain-barrier-gut-microbiota-1558/.

A new study in mice, conducted by researchers at Sweden’s Karolinska Institutet together with colleagues in Singapore and the United States, shows that our natural gut-residing microbes can influence the integrity of the blood-brain barrier, which protects the brain from harmful substances in the blood. According to the authors, the findings provide experimental evidence that our indigenous microbes contribute to the mechanism that closes the blood-brain barrier before birth. The results also support previous observations that gut microbiota can impact brain development and function.

The research is in Science Translational Medicine. (full access paywall)

Mac/iOS user? RelativeWave goes "free"

That's the app design platform that prototypes apps. It was recently $80. You know the rest of the story: Google buys company, app goes to free.

Central Park - Autumn - New York City

There are moments that remain etched into time:

moments that aren’t easily forgotten no matter how much time passes between the yawning gaps in between memory and dreaming.

Cameras become jars with which to capture moments that flicker like fireflies.

Photographers are moment collectors and dream catchers.

Madagascar and the Baobab Alley of Morondova.
Imagine trees whose branches look like roots, trunks as water reservoirs and leaves sprouting about 2-3 months of the year. Imagine humongous trunks, up to 82 feet in circumference and storing up to 32,000 gallons of water in its swollen trunks. It can live up to 5000 years.
It is known as the ‘Tree of Life’. It is the Baobab, folks.
The Baobab, tall, massive, flame resistant and one of the most unique plant on Earth. It thrives in one of the most unique, eco-sanctuary, Madagascar.
