TLC is a group for anyone in Tokyo (or elsewhere in Japan) who is interested in better understanding society, business and government (and group and personal interactions within them), and in thinking about how to personally contribute to making a better society.
Focus will be on analyzing social problems -- and topics such as individual and group plan formation, entrepreneurship, social capital, moral hazard, regulatory capture and crony capitalism -- while exploring the practical insights of what are known as "New Institutional Economics" (represented by 2009 Nobel Prizewinners Elinor Ostrom and Oliver E. Williamson) and "Austrian Economics" (Ludwig von Mises, Friederich Hayek and others), as well as the perspectives of a wide range of "libertarian" thinkers.

WE build our society, one member, one conversation, one beer, one meal and one shared activity at a time!
もちろん日本語でも大歓迎。

Google's Data Liberation Front remains, as you might hope, hard at work liberating your data.

Here's a story I wrote today about how +Brian "Fitz" Fitzpatrick and the other DLFers are using data portability and openness as a way to position Google (especially Google+) as a more open and attractive alternative to Facebook. Today's news: "Takeout now includes a list of the websites that you’ve +1’ed."

Good! If only all companies that stored your posts/contacts/photos/videos/etc. did the same thing...

Iran Bans Google+, Calling It a US 'Spy Tool'

(TEHRAN, Iran) -- Google's new social networking site, Google+, launched just about three weeks ago and it has already attracted over 10 million members around the world. But Iran can only seem to imagine a negative about Google+, making it harder for Iranians to join.

I'm reading this to mean that Mark Zuckerberg has taken over Iran. (^_^)

Haven't decided whether Google+ is really worth messing with or not, but this militates toward not.

Story
Introduction
I'm an unconventional right-leaning enviro-libertarian, concerned about mismanagement of the commons (a la Elinor Ostrom), risk-shifting and rent-seeking/corruption by limited liability corporations, and the impediments that central government politicians and bureaucrats pose to free and vibrant societies and markets, and to local, voluntary and cooperative government.

Some might say this makes me a progressive libertarian reactionary wingnut.
