People come up with reasons but any reason for detaining 50,000 people in their homes for a week is an admission of massive failure. #Cizre

What is to be done? The tragedy of the refugees could be an opportunity for Europeans to rise out of their petty disputes and their navel-gazing. By opening themselves up to the world, by jump-starting the economy and investments (housing, schools, infrastructure), by fighting off deflationary risk, the European Union could easily return to its pre-crisis immigration levels

was excited at first... but too steeped in monetary econ.
and using u.s. as a success story coming through 2008... maybe i'm reading it wrong.. but if not.. that's not right.

SNHU's Associate's degree was the first competency-based AA degree program approved by the US Department of Education. When launched, the $2500 degree had no courses and no three-credit hour units  just 120 competencies students learned to demonstrate, working at their own pace.
In order to create a $10,000 BA degree, SNHU had to question every single "rule" that forms the basis of what college is all about.

Dust-up over @deray Yale guest-lecture resembles activist infighting in many social-media fueled movements. Hope it fares better for #blm.
i @zeynep
Social media has great power but attention economy is also destructive. Its dynamics helped destroy capacity in many other movements.
Of course, the combination of attention and structurelessness as potentially damaging forces precede internet, but now both amplified.
I'll try to write more shorter pieces (I'm trying to finish my book on networked movements!) but attention is .. the whirlwind of movements.

FWIW i think the idea of infinite expansion as norm is the flaw: only one thing can be FB. that ended up being...FB.
most other platforms didn't have the initial breadth of uptake across generations so became niche, not normative.
ppl who took to Twitter formed specialized groups re shared interests, but those outside didn't ambiently see value.
