A pause for breath

OK, so that's the list of links that have been piling up lately with nowhere to post them.  And I appear to have just outlined about four research programs that could each consume a lifetime, to wit:
  • Semantic analysis of political writings using an as-yet-unwritten NLP tool
  • A catalog of ideas permeating our present-day society: what are they, where do they come from, who believes them, who denies them?  Along with a catalog of organizations (formal or not) and pundits, I suppose.
  • Menagerie and simulation of alternative economic systems
  • Declarative description of organizations, including business models
And that's just the academic research - it entirely leaves out the construction of a new political movement based on improving the world by rejuvenating democracy and a sense of community!

So I leave you on that note, and get back to work.
