Covering the election on Periscope and audioBoom

I've been playing around with the #Periscope app to do daily weekday reports mostly on the election. It goes out daily at 10am and usually has some mention of NI politics, since that's Slugger's home base, but I'd be keen to hear feedback from this group.

Periscope only works on #iPhone at the moment, but this #audioBoom page has all the editions I've managed to double live record onto my desktop. I know _our politics is not everyone's cup of tea which is why I only occasionally post about it on here. 

But I would genuinely like to hear your honest thoughts...

Politics as tribal conflict?

"Against all that, of course, is the understandable triumphalism of the SNP, and the irremediable nastiness of some of the activist base."

“Politics is now like a religion in Scotland,” says Muriel Gray, the Scottish writer. “It used to be debateable and enthralling. Now it is tribal, identity politics, for us or against us. Tragic.”
Scots separatists' leaders may present a respectable face to voters but at grassroots level some members are less genial

21C Governance - What does re-united culture look like?

21C Stewardship: Beyond Free

@QhaBhuti 
"A little worried that in the age of the internet, the commons is being defined as the fruit of people's labour. Labour is being labeled a commons like land.
Ownership of output is declared backward. Yet no indigenous community has a free-for-all as its governance of the commons. The free-for-all is known as the tragedy of the commons.
The internet is a great copy machine but it needs something to copy. It is taken for granted that creatives will produce for the internet to copy. In the long run - people will tire of being exploited by the great copy machine.
_The winners will be those with access that allows them to capture some of the value, their creative work produces.
The others will be drowned out and exploited out, diversity will diminish."_
-- +Thabo Mophiring 


"Do you have any guesses about what that reunited culture would look like?"
-- Kevin Kelly 

"Yes. Do you know what I hate about computers? The problem with computers is that there is not enough Africa in them."

21C Governance - People before technocracies
Kentaro Toyama went to India with noble intentions for using technology to improve people’s lives. Now he’s wrestling with why the impact was so small.

 “Why do many technologists fail to see that technology on its own is so limited in the changes it can bring?” A breath of fresh air.

"With the Armed Services Editions, publishers gambled that by putting good books in the hands of average Americans, they could cultivate an appetite for more.

"The publishing industry made a fortune by betting on the intelligence of the great masses, and proving Mencken wrong"
And, in the process, they created a nation of readers.
