At last year's Mountainfilm festival, Dean Potter buzzed Telluride, flying over the Ice Cream Social in his wingsuit. This short video, by Brett Schreckengost, captures that incredible moment and the spirit of Dean perfectly.

we need to protect the concept "platform" from conflation with unregulated markets,(from both the right and the left unfortunately)

Original Tweet: https://twitter.com/bratton/status/600394117265301504
(1) platforms are a technical and institutional form that has features of both states and markets, centralized and decentralized…
(2) Platforms are neither good nor bad intrinsically: critical left scaremongering is as useless as libertarian market patriotism
(3) Platform politics that we'll end up with will be based on losing battles that shouldn't have been fought.
(4) critique of infrastructure is essential but has to rotate into infrastructure-scale design models (if it is serious, not just posturing)

Seth Godin on Singularity 1on1: Science Fiction is Really Important But ...





i don't think doing work for profit is part of being human
idea of jobs is temporary.. 
economics is based on scarcity. ie: if there's enough food, then the idea of working to get food to eat goes out the window 
 a full-out human - a human totally present in the moment - when we culturally admire people who are being human - that's what we admire them for - doing things with hubris

Medical researchers, especially prominent ones, tend to be passionate people, with a laser-like focus on their work.  Getting them to collaborate with other groups of people can be a challenge.  Convincing them to work with an artificial intelligence like Watson?  Much more difficult.

Dr. Chin sees a need to shift from provider centric care to patient centered care and she believes technology and data can help.  She told me, “Rather than wait for Darwinian evolution to happen, why not create an integrated infrastructure, from hardware and software to data and analytics, that can disrupt the thinking and center care around each individual patient.
scale the individual ness

Her new focus is at the other end of the spectrum from a top cancer center like MD Anderson—improving treatment of diabetes and obesity in Cameron county in South Texas, one of the poorest areas in the nation.  Here, rather than working with complex diseases, her task will be improving access to care for the most underserved patients.

Those few leaders are the “makers,” Paul Ryan explained in 2010; the majority of Americans are “takers.” The more it becomes evident that the “trickle down” theory of wealth has not worked– that rather than trickling down, wealth has rushed upward since 1980– the more leading Republicans insist that the problem is not their theory. The problem, they say, is that it has not been adopted fully enough.
Americans have soured on supply-side economics, but that hasn’t changed who runs the country. When opponents demand economic fairness, Republicans respond by accusing them of being anti-American “Liberals” or minorities looking for a handout. When rhetoric isn’t enough, Republicans gerrymand districts and manipulate the electorate to stay in power even without a popular majority

he idea that water-boarding and other “harsh interrogation” produced the intelligence that led to bin Laden (as in the fictionalized movie Zero Dark Thirty) is completely fabricated.
Instead, a “walk-in” tipster told US officials in Pakistan where he was in order to collect a $25 million reward.

One thing you’ll learn about Musk as you read these posts is that he thinks of humans as computers, which, in their most literal sense, they are. A human’s hardware is his physical body and brain. His software is the way he learns to think, his value system, his habits, his personality. And learning, for Musk, is simply the process of “downloading data and algorithms into your brain.” Among his many frustrations with formal classroom learning is the “ridiculously slow download speed” of sitting in a classroom while a teacher explains something, and to this day, most of what he knows he’s learned through reading.
