Yoda: UN Explores Data Revolution

Got Crowd? BE the Force!

Got Crowd? BE the Force!

Thinking, they are.

Towards a Data Revolution

This summer UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon established the Independent Expert Advisory Group (IAEG) to provide concrete recommendations on how to achieve a Data Revolution for sustainable development. The IEAG report – due in early November – will be a crucial opportunity to explain how better quality and more timely data can transform development. The group is also looking for innovative approaches to data collection, publication, and use.

To solicit input from all communities of practice – particularly academia – the IAEG is hosting a public consultation at undatarevolution.org to solicit input into its work until October 15, 2015In spite of the short notice, we strongly encourage you to submit your ideas and suggestions for the data revolution. Please share this message widely and provide your comments on the IEAG website.

Robert Steele: REVOLUTION! The Open Source Everything Action Handbook [New Book, Winter Project]

Robert Steele

Robert Steele

My recent attendance at Findhorn’s New Story Summit, combined with my reading of two books, Micah Sifry’s The Big Disconnect: Why the Internet Hasn’t Transformed Politics (Yet) and Darrell West’s Billionaires: Reflections on the Upper Crust, have come together to inspire a new book that seeks to unify the tribes with open source tools and aggregated money from four pots — UN SDG, Black Sheep Bilionaires, CEOs with angst, and USG.  This is my winter project. North Atlantic Books, publisher of The Open Source Everything Manifesto: Transparency, Truth, and Trust, is on board contingent of course on my actually producing a useful book for their editor to work with — I cannot say enough good things about the editor that cut OSE in half and reduced all words by one syllable. Below is an early outline.  I would be deeply grateful if you cared to read over the outline and give me feedback.  At this point I am just asking two questions: 01 Do the phrases resonate?  Should any of them be modified? 02 What am I missing — this is supposed to be a guide that brings us together for action rooted in spirituality, an end to lip service and me me me my hashtag or none fauz activism. What would you be looking for in such a book? Thank you for anything that might occur to you.  I am most optimistic about the future. Blessings to you all, Robert
