MOST interesting Blog I've just tripped over...

Very articulate blog, this is one I've added to my RSS listings.

PS: what he's got to say also scares the pants off me.

His work focuses on the importance of long-term, systemic thinking, emphasizing the power of openness, transparency and flexibility as catalysts for building a more resilient society.

Yup, couldn't agree more. I also just discovered Jamais Cascio (via a post on the absurdity of the 'Singularity University'). Good stuff indeed. -Adam Gordon
