When Donald Tusk, the European Council President, tried to issue the communiqué without him, Varoufakis consulted Eurogroup clerks – could Tusk exclude a member state? The meeting was briefly halted. After a handful of calls, a lawyer turned to him and said, “Well, the Eurogroup does not exist in law, there is no treaty which has convened this group.”
 “So,” Varoufakis said, “What we have is a non-existent group that has the greatest power to determine the lives of Europeans. It’s not answerable to anyone, given it doesn’t exist in law; no minutes are kept; and it’s confidential. No citizen ever knows what is said within . . . These are decisions of almost life and death, and no member has to answer to anybody.”

Hyperlinks are objectivized, isolated, stripped of their powers.
[..]
 hyperlinks aren’t just the skeleton of the web: They are its eyes, a path to its soul. And a blind webpage, one without hyperlinks, can’t look or gaze at another webpage — and this has serious consequences for the dynamics of power on the web.

The ‘optimal’ distribution of resources is then less important than the sustainability of the distribution mechanism, in terms of endurance and fairness, based on collective decision-making and tolerance of unintentional errors. In these circumstances, we propose to model resource allocation as a common-pool resource management problem, and develop a formal characterization of Elinor Ostrom’s socio-economic principles for enduring institutions.

I love this: "when Melbourne gave its trees an email address" theatlantic.com/technology/arc…



Normally, a letter from some immigrant scientists would not reach the President’s desk, but Einstein’s signature carried a lot of weight.  The President ordered the idea studied and determined that it required action.  As luck would have it, an engineer from MIT, named Vannevar Bush, was also in the process of selling Roosevelt an idea.
Bush’s brainchild was the OSRD (Office of Scientific Research and Development), which would capitalize on America’s newfound talent to conduct scientific research to support the war effort.  Bush would run it and report only to the President.  His proposal was approved and given almost unlimited resources and funding.
The OSRD was an unparalleled success.  In addition to the Manhattan Project that built the atomic bomb, it also developed a number of other innovations that contributed greatly to the war effort, including the proximity fuze and radar.  Perhaps most importantly, it forever changed how science was funded and undertaken in the United States.
perhaps how we could/should treat Neil g ness et al.
but also... as the day
Today, virtually every digital device in the world is based on the von Neumann architecture and America dominates the global market for digital technology, estimated to be worth nearly $4 trillion a year.  We are also leaders in every other advanced area conceivable, from medical research to nanotechnology to energy.
Throughout our history it has been our openness—to new people as well as new ideas—that made it all happen.

The Guardian on our Israel/Syria assassination story yesterday theguardian.com/world/2015/jul… - Jerusalem Post on it: jpost.com/Middle-East/Sn…



http://www.socialistproject.ca/bullet/1145.php

posted on fb by michel
the proposals here make a lot of sense:
"The recent years of struggle have developed the famous grassroots solidarity movement that began – as all organizing must – by addressing the needs of people. Out of this grew the some 400 solidarity groups all across Greece addressing basic community needs through self-organized democratically run collectives which provide support for people's health, food, housing and other needs. Syriza members were among those deeply involved in establishing and maintaining the solidarity networks and its MPs elected in 2012 contributed 20 per cent of their salaries to them. But since the Syriza government was elected this year it has done very little to change and use the state so as to sustain and broaden this remarkable movement."
