That is the goal
but can this work?

Also, Facebook using wordpress for their news site...
Who owns wordpress.com? Auto-Google-matic

Maybe google will give up on their 'own' social media front (circles, hang-outs, u-hoo) and just adopt open source for everything - or maybe they could team up with FB :-//

Book review: ‘The Internet Is Not the Answer’ by Andrew Keen - The Washington Post

Book review: ‘The Internet Is Not the Answer’ by Andrew Keen - The Washington Post:

"The Internet is, indeed, not the answer. It is, rather, the all-consuming question of the first half of the 21st century."
which includes mention of :

The People's Platform: Taking Back Power and Culture in the Digital Age
which looks interesting...

maybe i'm feeling cynical but some of the sentiments seem a little scathing and patronising... but potentially interesting (how open tho'?)

From Social Butterfly to Engaged Citizen - The MIT Press

From books to infrastructure - Design - Domus: From books to infrastructure—
Most people think of Amazon as little more than an online bookstore, but it could be one of the defining forces of 21st–century life—an algorithmically managed infrastructure company that has single–handedly rewritten the publishing industry's rulebook. A design report from Seattle by James Bridle

She Is Leaving :: Cube Grenades from gapingvoid art

She Is Leaving :: Cube Grenades from gapingvoid art: "It was pre-destined that the stronger, smarter sex would come to dominate every aspect of life, leaving mainstream is just another iteration...."


Playing For Change | Higher Ground
REMOVE BARRIERS...

...such as being able to easily link to an image?)



gapingvoid gallery: Our potential speaks through the Internet--sharing our products, designs, art, technology and achievements, but look at how we're talking to one another now. The global village has become a reality. Cultural barriers are fading. Phsyical distances are evaporating. Languages can be translated with two clicks of the mouse.

Doc Searls Weblog � World wide puddle

some great quotes and interesting pointers from >>
Doc Searls Weblog � World wide puddle: "I don’t have a conclusion here, other than to say that maybe Nick and both Alices are right, and the Net is not so ideal as some of us (me especially) tend to think it is. But I also think the Net is something we make, and not just something that makes us." [my emphasis]
keep seeing mentions of TedTalks

just wish my connection was fast enough to watch them :(

"The historic knowledge–management role of the diplomat highlights the part technology has played in the world of diplomacy, including the relationship between the ambassador abroad and the political centre. It also offers a further perspective on the ways in which technologies open up new possibilities, intended and unintended, often fraught with ambiguity and potential for enhancement and disruption. In turn this offers lessons for further consideration of what can be termed the Dark Side of Knowledge Management, and for organizational communication in general."

Doors of Perception weblog: 'Reversing the reversal' with john chris jones

Doors of Perception weblog: 'Reversing the reversal' with john chris jones:
‘To begin with what can be imagined
To use both intuition and reason
To work it out in context
To model the contextual effects of what is imagined
To change the process to suit what is happening
To refuse what diminishes
To seek inspiration in what is
To choose what depends on everyone’
