The post Bruce Sterling wrote about the state of communication infrastructure and its denizens is a gift that keeps on giving. You can read it as a piece on policy in a post globalization world, or as an analysis of where systems thinking and intelligence collide with ideals of democracy and rules dating to a premodern world. I’m sure you can read something else into it entirely, but read it you should, if you have not already. It is relevant in every context.
