Tidbits :: Sunday October 10, 2010

Dave Winer on I cheered for Bob Woodward when I read this: “The only way to get what we want is to make the stuff work the way we want it to work. We can’t wait for Silicon Valley to do that for us, because they will never do it. It’s not in their nature.”
Mike Philips in Prospect Magazine on How multiculturalism fails immigrants: “Grouping people according to their “historical” cultural identity is both divisive and dangerous. Migration is about change, not ossification ”
Cristiano Betta on My Thoughts on Hack Days: “The great thing though is that this promotes team work. At many Hack Days I see people work mainly in pairs or alone, because we all know it’s a pain if you are in a team of 5 and you win ONE prize. Who is taking it home, who will eBay it, who put in the most effort in the hack, etc. I worked in a team of 4 this year at CharityHack and it was the best Hack Day fun I had in a while. I wish more Hack Days would somehow promote team work, either by prizes per team member or any other way.”
