TL;DR -- federation can be bad because it carries with it the political culture of its launch, making it difficult to cultivate over time. Federation without federation, though, e.g. setting up a bunch of focused micro-communities is good (see the rise of Slack and other such P2P "private" or closed networks).

Citizen Kane might be Welles’ masterpiece, but thanks to Animaniacs we’ll always have that remote farm in Lincolnshire, where peas grow every July.

Some more photos taken on our adventures up in the county, including what I believe to be a fly agaric mushroom, like the ones Viking berserkers would munch before going “berserk.”



Our last day in the county was gorgeous. I can’t wait to get back up north.

In reply to: HQ2 Chasing Is a Dying Model. Cities Should Woo Workers - CityLab

Chasing corporate headquarters and throwing money at them, reflects a great-man theory of economic development that reflects deep civic insecurity: only a corporation can save a city from its struggles. But corporations aren’t the civic heavyweights they used to be.

The future,

This period of change, when workers are being decoupled from their traditional employers, is a huge opportunity for cities. They should look to fill the vacuum created by receding corporations.

Someone really loves interpretive panels.

I've been listening to a lot of music lately (instead of podcasts) and thinking about the structure of wikis. The two have been informing each other.

I've been starting with a contemporary song, usually by a more well known artist like Kanye West, and then listening to everything one of their song's samples...and onward. Song as wiki.

It has been interesting, and a great way to find new (to me) music and artists.

On a similar musical note @hisaac re-introduced me to Bruce Springsteen. An artist that I've of course known about, and heard, but never paid much thought. This week I discovered that the album Nebraska is heart breaking and good…I am probably late to this insight, but it was bracing.

I've also been listening to a lot of Mos Def, instrumental Pete Rock and Noname (who's new album is 🔥).



We’re sticking close to home this weekend. Today we walked through a nearby wood and explored a cemetery.
