A reality we don't want to face? And, if we face it, how do we change it when those with the power would have to give up power?

A study from Princeton and Northwestern Universities concludes this way:

"Despite the seemingly strong empirical support in previous studies for theories of majoritarian democracy, our analyses suggest that majorities of the American public actually have little influence over the policies our government adopts. Americans do enjoy many features central to democratic governance, such as regular elections, freedom of speech and association, and a widespread (if still contested) franchise. But we believe that if policymaking is dominated by powerful business organizations and a small number of affluent Americans, then America’s claims to being a democratic society are seriously threatened."

Just joined Google+ (or any social network)?

Before you post...
Before you circle or follow or like people...
Before you do anything else...

Fill out your profile with as much as you are willing to share.

If you start interacting with people who don't already know you and your profile is blank, how do those people decide to follow you back?

Answer: I don't follow complete strangers so I won't follow you back. And many others also won't.

Who will follow a blank profile? People you already know and people who don't care who you are.

Don't exclude the people who want a relationship and only get people who don't care who you are. Fill out your profile.

Completely alone in a large, underground bus station. Downtown Boston is not very populated on a Saturday morning!

I have been participating in the generation of Agile tips via Twitter. Those of us doing it have been using the hashtag #theremightbeaproblem. Even if you don't us Twitter, you might find something interesting in the sporadic stream.

Wise warning from +Evo Terra
 
Ignite Phoenix tickets on sale at 10:00 a.m. PT today!

Do not say I didn't warn you. Tickets for Ignite Phoenix #16 will go fast, like they always do. The event is May 2nd, but tickets go on sale -- and will sell out -- today.

No, I'm not speaking. But yes, I'm attending. I've never missed one. Ever.

Took a walk to The Space Needle before having dinner with colleagues and friends.

The bottle for the ginger beer was more interesting than the beverage. Needed more ginger and less sweetness. The raspberry soda, on the other hand, was great!

We ate at Etta's Seafood.
