Ever notice how most community software encodes an admin/mod model? What about other models, like democracy? What if communities could *build for themselves* the governance that suits them? Presenting our paper on "PolicyKit: Building Governance in Online Communities"!

I've been exploring a number of different virtual spaces with friends and with my team at work, but I didn't spend much time in Sococo. For the team meetings, we haven't been doing typical day-to-day work in there, only casual, free-form, brainstorming-type conversations.

1/ Yesterday, while writing about a 1888 rail plan for Rome, I qualified the city as a "capital by chance that never quite assumed it's role seriously, at least planning-wise". Here is the reason why I say that and why Rome is not in a way like other big Western capital cities

But the dangers of uncritical double standards should not drive you to the opposite end of the spectrum, of clueless single standards that involve perverse self-blinding to illegible context out of a perverse desire to be “consistent” like you’re a court. You’re not a court.

"Labor’s share of income has declined over the past two decades, but not principally because capital’s share has increased... Most of the decline is offset by an increase in rental income." h/t

What’s strange about that? That in many places you need to invoice others using the official tax authority website, or official tax authorized papers. In many places, every document that is shared has to be notarized or verified by a third party. /22

So I care about work culture, and I put a lot of weigh on small roadblocks that add up. Things that cut the flow and limit your ability to create teams. Today, I want to share three simple things that I thing the US does really well. /7

To be clear, working across conventional disciplinary lines is incredibly valuable! This is not to undercut the value added by these so-called polymaths.

Stunning map shows every single building in the Netherlands, shaded by year of construction. (Mine's from the 1910s.)

Tired: "Taxation is theft" Wired: "Property is theft" Inspired: "Taxing productive labor but not fixed-supply resources* is theft" * e.g. land, water, radio spectrum, space, and tidal power

"Many supposed polymaths apply a relatively small number of learning techniques to many fields." Perhaps when we call someone a "polymath", it says more about how we slice up disciplines than how their breadth compares to others'?
