  1. I cite: End of #OccupyWallStreet: conflict over drummers

    Nothing good can come of drumming circles. But this is very interesting. People who simply won’t play the rules (however collectively those rules are agreed) are why democracies end up with police forces. And online communities end up banning people. etc. (via @ianbetteridge)

  2. Foreign Aid for Scoundrels by William Easterly | The New York Review of Books

    Given the recent distancing of organisations from Gadafi, who turned out to be a “bad” dictator, rather than a “good” one, reading this article from November 2010 about the billions in aid the West gives to many dictatorships with no meaningful requirements for reforms is funny (as in “not funny”).
