Re: SeeChange: Video Will Be Everywhere (What Do We Want?) -
"I think we both agree regulation is pointless in this context. Real life will become like the web: default public (ie potentially captured on camera) unless expressly stated otherwise. It's interesting to think about Egger's monopolistic corporation in the light of Fred's recent post on winner-takes-all platforms -- in the sense the former is invented, whereas Fred's examples are not. If we can imagine a world in which millions (billions?) of live video streams are stored, indexed and searched, then we are also a forced to consider a world in which one dominant platform becomes the authoritative source for this information. Whilst the ability of one single organization to shape the future remains in the realm of science fiction, the ability to shape the recent past possibly might not..." - David Semeria

Re: Blended Learning -
"Blended learning sounds similar to the Montessori approach. I'm a huge fan of making school fun, and of creating an environment where children learn rather than being taught. I also read this very interesting BBC article about a school in NYC which has been taking this approach for years." - David Semeria

Re: The Coming Information Age (Possible Book Outline) -
"I think your outline covers a lot of ground Albert. What is perhaps missing is a description of the overarching thesis. For example, I'm a fan of Darwinism as applied to many areas, not just biology. I think this was the key problem with Communism: it contained no mechanism for natural selection. If I understand your thinking correctly, you're saying the overall rules of the game will remain Darwinian, but the features necessary to prosper are undergoing very profound change. I think the reader would appreciate a simple such summary (an elevator pitch if you like) -- it's something they can keep in mind as they process the various sections of the book." - David Semeria

Re: Technology, Time Preference and the Return on Capital (Companies) -
"Indeed. But how can one "buy attention out of cash flow" if one needs attention to get the cash flow in the first place? I agree that attention is the scarcest resource of all, but there is a finite number of Kickstarter projects I can get organically interested in per month. After that, my attention is essentially bought..." - David Semeria
