As with SOPA/PIPA, Congress denying they understood what they agreed to may precede them changing their minds

getting briefed.. doesn't mean knowing.. let alone grokking..

sounds like school... the world..
david Wiley..
we could be changing the world.. but policy keeps getting in the way ..

perhaps it's not the web that has us swimming in too much to know..
but rather.. our manufactured obsession with policy..

whoa.. can't take cell phone in.. can't take notes out, can't talk to others, jargony words
sound like school...

perhaps it does, because most all of us have spent 7hrs a day for 12+ years.. to perfect this ensuing mindset.
even though admit they are in the dark.. made to vote on it

so perhaps we do away with oversight of national security.. get back to trust.. dang.. via clay Shirky himself

let's go with just two rules.. for everyone.. for a year..
 for 5 months..
for a week..
a day even..

US 34th out of 35 developed countries on childhood health indices. 22% of our kids growing up in poverty!

Students who attend low-poverty schools do well on international test scores, as well as students in any other country.

this is so.. not... my dream.

this is the elephant in the room...
lovely elephant...screaming at us by now.. no?

be quiet enough

@tombarrett Yes, but the idea is that you can *cause* flow states in users by extrinsic motivators (gamification, etc.) :-)
