Neoliberalism From the Left
"In Leftism Reinvented: Western Parties from Socialism to Neoliberalism, Mudge looks at left parties in advanced capitalist countries over the last century and shows how the experts aligned with those parties pushed them in the direction of spin doctors and markets. In the process, left parties’ ability to represent the interests of their own working-class constituencies was eroded — and ordinary people were shut out of the halls of power."

Jaron Lanier Discusses Power Laws, Centralized Publishing, and the Social Perils of Free Information | The Scholarly Kitchen
"Overall, it’s a fascinating interview that touches on a number of topics in the wind currently. I plan to read the book, and do some thinking about these issues. “Free” is a price that has consequences. As we see what happens when information remains or becomes free, those consequences become clearer and require more serious thought. Ultimately, “free” could make us less free."

Q&A with Erkki Huhtamo | The MIT Press
"The moving panorama was a highly visible form of education and entertainment for the nineteenth-century people. In the very basic sense, these words refer to huge rolls of painted canvas that were unrolled in front of an audience. A lecturer interpreted the scenes, and the atmosphere was heightened by live music and sound effects. To make the moving pictures livelier, they were often illuminated by dioramic "special effects.""

Collective Intelligence | Conversation | Edge
"It's important to realize that intelligence is not just something that happens inside individual brains. It also arises with groups of individuals. In fact, I'd define collective intelligence as groups of individuals acting collectively in ways that seem intelligent. By that definition, of course, collective intelligence has been around for a very long time. Families, companies, countries, and armies: those are all examples of groups of people working together in ways that at least sometimes seem intelligent."
