Democracy Now interveiw with Noam Chomsky of MIT and Marwan Bishara of AlJazeera

This interview highlights the disconnect between the perspectives and aspirations of ordinary people in the Arab World with the conventional wisdom about this in American society and government leadership. This reminds me of my own experience trying to get government bureaucrats in Washington, London, Paris and Brussels to understand the emerging disaster in Rwanda before the genocide, and the wrong policy direction for Afghanistand and Pakistan after the Soviet army had withdrawn from Afghanistan.

A new era of international collaboration is, however, possible as modern technology makes good information ubiquitous.

Great piece with Noam Chomsky and Marwan Bishara

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
