The digital revolution is happening because a high school degree is a ticket to not very much, while the traditional form of college no longer works for the people who need a certificate of employability.

Just finished watching @SpotlightMovie. It is one of the greatest films I've ever seen and definitely the best film on journalism. Wow.

I used to give money to @amnesty now & then - they seemed a decent charity. Owing to their bizarre hostility to Rojava I never will again.

https://medium.com/keep-learning-keep-growing/what-s-really-going-on-at-yale-6bdbbeeb57a6

"For starters: the protests are not really about Halloween costumes or a frat party. They’re about a mismatch between the Yale we find in admissions brochures and the Yale we experience every day. They’re about real experiences with racism on this campus that have gone unacknowledged for far too long. The university sells itself as a welcoming and inclusive place for people of all backgrounds. Unfortunately, it often isn’t."

all of people all of internet all of time

guy next to gasser - vernaldo
internet governance is moving into trade agreements..
a challenge... many trade agreements behind closed doors
trade agreements have become prominent instrument for decisions on bill of rights

urs 
1. acknowledge it's taken us a very long time to figure out online consitutionalism.. we operate on uncertainty/complexity
1\ we don'tunderstand what's happening on internet, user behavior (esp childrent) - so data problem
2\ normative questions...  
3\ we don't know best instruments to accomplish goals

we should not put all our hopes on law..

2. more important than bill of rights... is that we are at moment of great imagination.. we can build it, we can shape contours for future

neighborhood econ conf - pre webinar


http://verysmartbrothas.com/why-the-university-of-missouri-football-boycott-is-the-biggest-american-protest-of-the-21st-century/

Because, as absurd and problematic as the countless calls for the players to have their scholarships revoked were, it’s equally absurd that a couple dozens or so kids threatening to not play one football game had such an extensive and decisive impact — on the college, the state, the conference, and the nation — that it took less than 72 hours to get the university president out. It’s nothing short of amazing that those kids had the wherewithal and courage to put their scholarships and livelihoods (current and future) on the line to stand up for what they believed in, and it’s nothing short of terrifying that nothing anyone else on that campus would have done would have mattered the same way. No hunger strikes — and thank you, Jonathan Butler, for sparking this flame — no protests, no petitions signed by students and teachers, no votes of no confidence would have earned the same result as quickly.
