- Information Arbitrage: We, The People, Deserve Better – We, the People, are the owners of the US Treasury, the Federal Reserve, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and represent the “full faith and credit of the US Government.” Therefore, solutions to the financial crisis that use our money should benefit us, and reflect a risk-adjusted market rate of return for the capital used. The measure should be what a rational, arms-length investor would demand for scarce capital in a time of crisis, not what Treasury Secretary Paulson together with CEO of the bailed out institution deem appropriate

- IT Conversations | Jon Udell’s Interviews with Innovators | Howard Bloom (Free Podcast) – Many of us feel that the Web is ushering in a new era of global consciousness. But Howard Bloom thinks life has been a collective mind from the very beginning. He made the case in his book “Global Brain: The Evolution of Mass Mind From the Big Bang To the 21st Century.” Host Jon Udell speaks with Bloom who reviews the themes of that book — group selectionism, complex adaptive systems, collective learning — and considers what has, and hasn’t, changed since the book was published in 2000.

It Doesn’t Have to be This Way
You’re writing an email to invite a friend to meet at a local San Francisco restaurant that neither of you has been to. You’d like to include a map. Today, this involves the disjointed tasks of message composition on a web-mail service, mapping the address on a map site, searching for reviews on the restaurant on a search engine, and finally copying all links into the message being composed. This familiar sequence is an awful lot of clicking, typing, searching, copying, and pasting in order to do a very simple task. And you haven’t even really sent a map or useful reviews—only links to them.

- Planning to Share versus Just Sharing at EdTechPost – This is a long post, born out of years of frustration with ineffective institutional collaborations. If you only want the highlights, here they are: grow your network by sharing, not planning to share or deciding who to share with; the tech doesn’t determine the sharing – if you want to share, you will; weave your network by sharing what you can, and they will share what they can – people won’t share [without a lot of added incentives] stuff that’s not easy or compelling for them to share. Create virtuous cycles that amplify network effects. Given the right ’set,’ simple tech is all they need to get started

- GAO: urgent policy concerns for transition/new administration – Many of the urgent policy concerns identified here are critical and time sensitive and require prioritized federal action. They are issues that require a focus from the transition team and new administration because if they are not dealt with, they could have great implications for life, well being, or the confidence of citizens in government, or because they have key quickly approaching dates where a decision must be made or actions taken. Consequently, these issues are not necessarily the most important issues in the long term, but rather those that must be dealt with immediately.
