Reinventors Network789,842Here'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 Network789,842Tim 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.

I find it distressing that US politicians (and the rest of world governments) can find hundreds of billions of dollars to make war, but only a pittance to build hospitals and other basic infrastructure, such that doctors have to flee for their lives when they are needed most.

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 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!

If we are going to transform government, we need both an inside game and an outside game.

The inside game consists of brilliant technologists like Todd Park and Mikey Dickerson and Bryan Sivak and Marina Martin who have passed up lucrative private sector opportunities to work inside government at the Federal level.

I'm also thinking of past and present Code for America partners at the city level. Jascha Franklin Hodge in Boston, Teresa Reno Webber in Louisville, Beth Niblock in Detroit, and Rick Cole, Peter Marx, and Abhi Nemani in LA all come to mind. There are so many people in government who are hungry for new ways of doing things. They went into public service to make a difference, and they want help from private sector partners who are working with 21st century technology and business models.

The outside game has largely consisted of nonprofits like Code for America and Datakind, but now increasingly we are seeing commercial companies who are bringing new ways of thinking to government projects. Venture capital adds welcome fuel to the mix.

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.

Makani Power was the brainchild of my son-in-law, Saul Griffith. So glad to see it continuing to do inspiring work tackling the clean energy opportunity from an unexpected angle.

Wind power has the potential to power the world 100 times over, yet only 5% of the world’s power comes from wind. Makani hopes to accelerate the shift to clean, renewable energy by developing energy kites, a new type of wind turbine. By building just the tip of a wind turbine blade (which makes most of the energy), we think it’s possible for Makani’s energy kite to generate 50% more energy while eliminating 90% of the materials used. And this could happen at half the cost of conventional wind turbines. Replacing tons of steel and concrete with smart software and advanced materials could dramatically change the calculus of wind power.

We’ve made a lot of progress since joining Google[x] last year—improving how we launch and land, how to fly in variable wind conditions, how to generate power more efficiently, and many other aspects of the system. Our new energy kite will reach higher, fly longer and generate 20 times more energy than earlier versions. We're moving from our proof of concept phase to a stage where we want to test ourselves against the "real world" challenges we'll face if we want to bring electricity to people.

So we’re hoping to start a pilot project next year on the island of Hawaii to test long-duration flights of our new energy kite for the first time, and to learn as much as much as possible—e.g. how much power we generate at different wind speeds and how to maintain the kite over long periods of time. 

Makani has a long history with Hawaii—our name is inspired by Hawaiian winds and we tested an early prototype of our kite there in 2008—and we’ve found a great site there with ideal wind conditions. We’re still in the early stages, but we hope that if the pilot project is successful, we’ll be a step closer to making clean energy more accessible.___Makani Power was the brainchild of my son-in-law, Saul Griffith.

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.___

It's amazing to me that CGI, the company that brought us the healthcare.gov fiasco, has the chutzpah to protest the ways that the UK GDS has cut the cost of government IT services while making those services far better for citizens. These guys should be laughed out of the room. The IT vendors need to work to improve their own services, not spread FUD about those who are showing how to do it better!

This is an important contribution to the debate. My own thoughts feature prominently in the second half of this article.  My argument is that we should look at this as an economic argument between various players, and before making policy, decide who needs "protection."  It looks to me from the economics that the telcos and cable companies are doing just fine, without being able to extract additional rents from internet companies!

Does net neutrality really matter?
By +Andy Oram 

"I feel that network neutrality as a (vague) concept took hold of an important ongoing technical, social, and economic discussion and rechanneled it along ineffective lines. As this article has shown, technology as well as popular usage has continuously changed at the content or application level, and there are many forms of centralization I’d worry about before traffic shaping."

What I'm waiting for is a better "user programming model."  Google Now or Siri plus IFTTT.  Speech brings us back to the command line, and the Unix Shell was the most powerful command line I've used. I loved how it seduced people into programming.  Anything could be a command, and you could combine them into new "scripts" (sentences if you will), that then could become first class verbs of their own.  It is the ideal model for the speech system of the future:  a constrained vocabulary to begin with, but ultimate customizability. Just like spoken and written language itself. 

Of course, I didn't say all that in the post below. But it's the thinking behind my handicapping Google way ahead of Apple in this horse race.___

Fascinating look at the role that various US billionaires play in politics. A quick look at what appears to be a deeper dive into the politics of top billionaires.  In this time when there is concern about money in politics, it helps to know who's buying whom :-(

The Code for America Summit #cfasummit  was an inspiring event. It's amazing to see how much energy, insight, and caring can be demonstrated by people who put their skills to work on hard and important problems. This is a world apart from the "Bro" culture of Silicon Valley. 

Rachel Myrow did a brief but excellent segment on the California Report that gives a bit of the flavor.  For more, visit cfasummit.org or codeforamerica.org.  I'll also post more of my personal highlights here.

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:

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, 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?"

I just did an hour video interview with +Slashdot. Here's what they had to say about it:

"We've run a few two-part videos, but this is the first time we've split one video into six parts -- with two running today, two tomorrow, and two Thursday. But then, how many people do we interview who have had as much of an effect on the nature of information transmission -- as opposed to just publishing -- as Tim O'Reilly? We don't know for sure, but there's a good chance that O'Reilly books are owned by more Slashdot readers than books from any other publisher. That alone makes Tim O'Reilly worth listening to for nearly an hour, total."

Is anyone else having troubles with Bluetooth on a Moto X?  It connects fine to my car when I make a call, but the bluetooth drops in and out, and the phone prompts me to ask whether I want to use the speakerphone, the headset, or the bluetooth - but a few seconds later, it connects back to bluetooth.  And oddly, it only happens some of the time.  And other uses of Bluetooth from the phone - for example, playing an audiobook or music - demonstrate no similar behavior.

It's a disastrous bug. Making me think about switching to another phone, even though I love this one.  And it seems to have been introduced only in the past month or so, as the phone worked fine with the car before that.

And yes, I've tried forgetting and re-initiating the bluetooth connection.

The title of this piece doesn't do it justice. The description does better: "This talk discusses how logs and stream-processing can form a backbone for data flow, ETL, and real-time data processing. It describes the challenges and lessons learned as LinkedIn built out its real-time data subscription and processing infrastructure. It also discusses the role of real-time processing and its relationship to offline processing frameworks such as MapReduce.

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.)
