"Emergent Democracy"

If you’re interested even the slightest bit in the sorts of things this Weblog addresses, stop what you’re doing and read Joichi Ito’s wonderful paper, “Emergent Democracy”. It’s a terrific synthesis of how the new technologies that enable personal publishing — blogs, RSS, Trackback, and so forth — could be simultanously creating the potential for a new kind of public space. It’s a must-read for anyone who’s as fascinated as I am with self-organizing systems.

Obligatory Disclaimer

If you think anything I write here represents the opinions of anybody but myself, you need more help than I can give you. The opinions are all mine, folks. Nobody else's. ESPECIALLY not my employer's.

If that's too hard to understand... well, I'm sorry. There's only so much I can do. I'm not a therapist, and I'm not a miracle worker. (Unless you consider staying employed in this economy a miracle.) I wish I could help you work through your delusional belief that I'm speaking for anyone else but myself. Honestly, I do. But in the end, that's a monkey you'll have to get off your back on your own. Sorry.
