Open Source explained in LEGO
Have you ever wondered – What is open source?
We made this stop motion video in an attempt to explain for anyone. This, simply to help scale the positive principles within the open source paradigm.
The video itself is open for everyone to use, modify and share. So feel free to do that!
Please visit http://bitblueprint.com/ for more information on how to apply the open source paradigm to your organisation. Visit http://movingmonday.com/ if you want to learn more about this awesome video production!
This is a MUST WATCH. Includes NSA spying on Secretary of State Colin Powell, pre-Senator Barack Obama, specific generals including Petraeus, and specific Supreme Court Justices as well as specific lawyers across the country. Begins with segment in which General Mike Hayden, then Director of NSA, is shown actively lying, with malice aforethought, to a nation-wide audience on television.
Concludes with growing national movement to shut down provision of local water to any NSA facility, the OFF NOW campaign; while also forbidding any NSA data being used in state and local courts; kicking NSA out of all state academic and research universties; and terminating state contracts with any corporations holding contracts with NSA.
Assange to SXSW: We’re all being watched

Industrial era institutions have failed — need a new way of organizing.
Liquid demoracy, liquid feedback delegates trust.
Politics about decision-making but no software captures how decisions are made and carried forward.
AGENCY is the deinstituionalization (disintermediation) os as to move agency back to the people.
Institutions cannot currently interact with networks (e.g. “outreach” stinks)
GOAL is to replace institutions with P2P protocols.
A Simple Process To Learn How To Curate Any Content You Read: The Cornell Notes
I recently stumbled onto this short video tutorial (1′:57″) which was created to explain to students how to take effective notes during a lesson or lecture.
Right upon my first play through it, I immediately felt that the steps suggested in it, could be also very useful for anyone just starting out with content curation and wanting to follow some kind of formal sequence to achieve good results.
The Cornell Notes video tutorial illustrates in fact in less than two minutes how to: 1) collect notes, 2) extract key concepts from them and 3) synthesize the essence of it in a presentable and readable format. If you are just starting out with content curation, this can be quite useful. Useful. Simple. 8/10

Let the Investigations and Prosecutions Begin! 9 years after the attacks we are finally zeroing in on the people responsible. Kevin Ryan has been kicking ass and taking names, while the pseudo-savior Julian Assange censors cables dealing with Israel and calls 9/11 Truthers “annoying”. Assange staked the reputation of Wikileaks on the public never learning about Building 7. So ask yourself: Who would want to silence the biggest controversy in history? Why is Julian Assange doing this? Who is he?
