real/bull

be\cause of this essay by Brian D Earp (shared by @surreallyno )
The Unbearable Asymmetry of Bullshit – feb 2016
There will always be things that we haven’t figured out yet, and even some that we get wrong.” ...It’s about a methodology for investigation, which includes, at its core, a relentless drive towards questioning that which came before.
[..]
There is a veritable truckload of bullshit in science. When I say bullshit, I mean arguments, data, publications, or even the official policies of scientific organizations thatgive every impression of being perfectly reasonable — of being well-supported by the highest quality of evidence, and so forth — but which don’t hold up when you scrutinize the details
[..]
once you do catch on, it becomes impossible to un-see.
[..] 
they end up becoming a part of the published record with every appearance of being legitimate critique.
what does published record even mean .. no?
hearing myself questioning blockchain for validation (rather than facilitation). hearing 09 rhodes scholar questioning another person’s book/narrative (not as is… but as ultimate)
[..]
As the programmer Alberto Brandolini is reputed to have said: 
The amount of energy necessary to refute bullshit is an order of magnitude bigger than to produce it.
oh the energy\ness we waste via bullshit ness
the realest thing in our lives via Seth (same day)

The realest thing in our lives

Are the stories we invent.
We live with these stories, we remind ourselves of them, we perfect them.
And, happily, if you don’t like the story you’re telling yourself, you can change it.

thinking..
we sit in our stadiums (thousands of thousands of us) yelling at manufactured players..
and/or online yelling at our yelling.
while – syria.. kampala.. solitary.. suicide.. et al goes on alongside

what might happen .. if instead of our story being that of our child being a future player (nevermind the less visible dying via body/brain/soul abuse) making tons of money/popularity and/or a future politician/official person making tons of money (nevermind the less visible dying via body/brain/soul abuse) … we changed the story to be that of our child being the one seeking refuge, answers, …

would that change things

open enough










perhaps what we need to do (first) is find/work-on a system that is open enough to set/keep 7 billion+ people free. today.
open as in involving enough people
like when Tim Berners-Lee says, he had to give the www away, because it would only work if the whole world was on it. the more people.. the better the chances of 1\ people finding their tribe and 2\ the sync of humanity getting its day… ie: getting to dance the dance..
open as in involving enough eclectic people
systemic change begs discrimination to infinity, ie: no more lables. if we see everyone as a thumbprint, two lovely/humane things happen, 1\ prejudice decreases, age/race/expertise/status/cliques, .. becomes irrelevant, and  2\ ourinterconnectedness (our one\ness) becomes more visible,

ie: a people experiment

aka: in the city. as the day.

simple enough










perhaps what we need to do (first) is find/work-on a mechanism that is simple enough to be accessible/usable by 7 billion+ people. today.
mechanism as the actual modeling of another way to live.. begs to be simple enough to be seen/grokked, aka: modelable
You’ll never ever be able to convince a person through logical argument or even brilliant rhetoric that a free and just society is possible. You can show them. You can start doing it. .. It really has to do with your sense of horizons/possibilities.. and the only way you can do that is to do something that nobody thought was possible.  –David Graeber
ie: we learned to walk/talk through modeling
mechanism as tool/placebo used in modeling another way.. begs to be simple enough to be used/accessed, aka: convivial, user-friendly
not only does this other way need to be modeled/modelable.. in order to hasten its equity/spread, the tools (app/chip) used to facilitate (ground the chaos of) the (initial) modeling.. should be simple enough for anyone to use/access/remix.. ie: without a manual/course/training/purchase.. so anyone could be/become a modeler..

ie: model another way w/ app/chip

aka: the luxury to do something else

deep enough






perhaps what we need to do (first) is find/work-on a problem that is deep enough to resonate with 7 billion+ people. today.
deep enough.. as in ability to already resonate with all..
not necessarily one that affects each of us.. because you could say – all problems affect us. (because of our interconnectedness. none of us are free if one of us is chained.. ness.) ie: climate change affects us all, but that idea is not believed/owned by everyone
but one that resonates with each of us. already. it would’t have to be pitched, explained, compulsorized. the energy/desire for solving/addressing already exists.. bountiful.. within all people.
deep enough.. as in by capability of ongoing (self) re-generation..
if … a problem already resonates with a human (meaning – it comes from deep within each one of us, as the root of us) the solution is already written on and burning within each heart.. aka: in the human’s being.
then … sustainability becomes the given. 24/7 we have 7 billion people rebooting the energy. re-iterating the solution. re mixing the dance.

ie: 2 needs

aka: authenticity & attachment

olslag argues for substantially higher defense spending, but also says: "You can not defend a weak society, there is no strong army to help."

"We are a society-wimps. Many people behave as molluscs passively but with a hard skeleton of government and employer and false sense of protection. 
Alexis de Tocqueville wrote in Democracy in America about how passivity, unbridled individualism and routine bureaucracy democracy can destroy. 
"The people love how they build a different society so that their children can spend the morning peacefully to school, their work cycle, have a drink after six hours and in the evening which can cook and a game of football or walking in nature .

I'm arguing for years for teaching aesthetics and philosophy at secondary schools. This leads to stronger citizens, more demanding consumers and thus opportunities for producers. I got applause, but no action.

With Twitter’s poor signal-to-noise ratio, should social academia look to less corporate and more localised network… bit.ly/1GRLsI6
But for me lately, Twitter has more specific problems. The signal-to-noise ratio is far from optimal: it’s becoming harder to sift through the stream to find the really good stuff. The trolls are also multiplying — even within communities that have for many years been quite amicable places to inhabit. Harassment and threats are headlining. And users are discovering the horror of trying to report (and have removed) illicit and violent materials that victimize children. (I was going to quote someone here on this, but it seems that the trolling and harassment that followed her bringing this situation to light led her to make her account private. I’ll leave her name off here, in light of her desire, and apparent need, for privacy.)

Good article in the New York Times on how the National Credit Union Administration crushed the credit union created by my friends Jordan Modell & Brewster Kahle. Shows the power of bureaucrap to destroy any positive innovation.
Most of the NCUA's victims (roughly 200 credit unions are shut each year, compared to just 3 or 4 created ) don't dare speak out because of the risk of retaliation e.g. NCUA tried to quash the NYT article by suggesting that they were about to indict the credit union.

You know how Google et al give employees free food? Here's what happens after it goes uneaten. n.pr/1lKLgnS#fringebenefits
www.buzzfeed.com/nitashatiku/tech-free-food-food-waste#.soD5QyPN6

And all that food — spurred by the fear that anything less than abundance will hurt employee hiring and retention — leads to a lot of food waste.
But this is not another Google bus debacle, during which multibillion dollar tech corporations and their luxury shuttle buses quickly became a symbol of the industry’s indifference toward its neighbors. Silicon Valley has, for the most part, been conscientious about the community when it comes to surplus prepared food. Oftentimes that means signing up for free food-collection services, or partnering with pre-existing charities. A..

But while nonprofits told BuzzFeed News they are grateful for all the surplus food, the deluge can be overwhelming. The burden of redistributing corporate spillover falls on agencies that offer their services for free and depend on volunteers. “..Nonprofits and church groups are overextended.

..40% of the food in the United States goes uneaten. But surplus sounds callous from companies who claim to have a better vision for how the world should operate. It’s particularly troubling considering the number of neighbors who go hungry. In Santa Clara and San Mateo counties, which encompasses Menlo Park, Mountain View, and Sunnyvale — and the headquarters of Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, and Yahoo — one in four individuals is at risk for hunger. The national average is one in six people. In one of the wealthiest areas of the country that considers itself an incubator for the future, one in three kids are at risk for hunger.

fractaled to the rest of us.. esp on ie: thanksgiving

ICYMI, here's part 1/4 of a series on secure app development processes: dymaxion.org/essays/ngodevs…. Early access subscribers get part 2 tmrw.
Many development teams, especially teams newer to development or working on one-off projects, will wait until fairly late in the development process before they begin to write documentation.  This is a critical mistake and a mode of working which is largely incompatible with the participatory design process and with developing secure software.  While sensitivities in user interviews must be taken into account, raw interview materials, the insights drawn from them, and the design principles and feature ideas that result from the process all must be documented.  Each time a decision is made, it should both be recorded and the rationale for the decision linked to the field observations or user comments that drove it.  If this process is followed someone who is trying to understand later why a choice was made or what the intent was has the original sources close at hand.

.@LSEnews sociologist Lisa Mckenzie @redrumlisa on scholarship, protest, #JointEnterprise and her day in courtow.ly/V6j86

I was worried that I would be judged for being involved in Class War: people react strangely to that term. But I was wrong. Many individuals and groups, including from the academic world, have rallied around me, not only in relation to my case but also regarding the issues that it throws up. Rising inequality in the UK means that class politics are once again becoming central to our understanding of oppression: something attested to by the fact that my crowd-funding campaign reached its targeted amount within 24 hours.
Our freedom as academics to disagree and to offend the status quo is at risk from the police, from government and from university management. Ideas are the most dangerous tools in any revolution, and, as academics, thinkers and activists, we cannot take our freedom to explore and promulgate them for granted. That freedom has been hard won and will continue to be challenged by those who are afraid of us.

Full details of how it worked are sketchy, although the EPA has said that the engines had computer software that could sense test scenarios by monitoring speed, engine operation, air pressure and even the position of the steering wheel.
When the cars were operating under controlled laboratory conditions - which typically involve putting them on a stationary test rig - the device appears to have put the vehicle into a sort of safety mode in which the engine ran below normal power and performance. Once on the road, the engines switched out of this test mode.
first thought on first read: people in schools; people in life;.. perpetuating not us ness... just to get through the day...

Car analysts at the financial research firm Bernstein agree that European standards are not as strict as those in the US. However, the analysts said in a report that there was, therefore, "less need to cheat". So, if other European carmakers' results are suspect, Bernstein says the "consequences are likely to be a change in the test cycle rather than legal action and fines".

again... schools, resumes, cheating.. to get by.
we ave to get at root..
ie: I have seen no climate change proposal .. et al ... getting at root... rather.. we just keep changing the test cycle et al

I do not believe that the future is either utopian nor dystopian.  I do see that global networks of human relationships are structured very differently. Its power to adapt and to extend its reach quickly without prior expectation is remarkable.
At the heart of the network is the individual who initiates and acts to create opportunities within relationships of trust and mutuality. 
Hierarchies are not built on trust, but rather on the integrity of the system.
Networks, on the other hand, only function well when there is trust at the center of the relationships.
Both systems are inherently fragile and susceptible to change from outside forces.

in order to use properly we'd have to invent a whole new language.

words hate anything that stamps them in one meaning..

4 min - the origin of capitalism - ellen wood - this dispossession forced competition, accumulation, profit max, hence constant systemic need to develop productive forces... fueled capitalist laws of motion... 
socialized job to arrest that motion..
so 2 candidate ideas: 1\ basic income 2\ guaranteed jobs - i see them as complementary - jesse

8 min - alyssa - basic income:
1\ gives workers more power

17 min - 500 lbs a year will keep one alive in the sunshine.. how to get that 500 lbs a yr is what all of us here are trying to figure out..... virginia woolf , room of one's own.. instinct for profession.... jacobin - alive in the sunshine

beyonce - all people on planet working 9 to 5 just to stay alive.. how come

33 min - how to eliminate econ insecurity.. but also how do we build a road to participation..
from basic income.. program i'm critical of... permanent/unconditional/universal.... ie: 20000 to every citizen in u.s. i think macro econ will work against that model.
i study monetary systems... i'm interested in talking about govt spending.. basic premise.. modern econ's are fiat econs.. and fiat currency a public monopoly... so the very argument that govt can't fund public priority doesn't make sense
36 min - you earn dollar, state taxes dollar, fed/govt makes dollar... so how does gov provide currency doesn't corrupt system
37 min - public spending sets a conversion rate... in one money is free.. in other money in exchange for something...
job guarantee, by providing a wage.. situating power of currency in the labor power.. you know what your money is worth, exactly...

whoa...
we're so drowning...

40 min - on still having to consume with basic income
41 min - eliminating bad jobs... but increase purchase prices that basic income would be used for
job security is counter cyclical..
44 min - on recognizing certain people who need basic income to complement the job guarantee... vehicle to bring people together - its the coordinating mechanism..
45 min - you have to change property rights... can't just guarantee jobs
1:05 - utopian aspect..
looking to places where unemployment is the norm - for rhetoric..policy.. et al

1:06 - jesse asking to hear about job guarantee not as a 9 to 5 ness...
answer - some people really want a job.. to feel they're being productive..
income meets day to day needs... wealth is the freedom... 

1:08 - then goes on to the math of it all... 
[why spend our time on the math of it all..?]

we need programs to give every american some seed capital

1:09 - a capital society that locks in some without capital is cruel
