16:25:21 From Frode Hegland : Thanks Brandel
16:26:46 From Frode Hegland : Alexander Hamilton’s opening remarks in The Federalist Papers†; “It has been frequently remarked that it seems to have been reserved to the people of this country, by their conduct and example, to decide the important question, whether societies of men are really capable or not of establishing good government from reflection and choice, or whether they are forever destined to depend for their political constitutions on accident and force.”
16:26:51 From Frode Hegland : Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay wrote the papers in defence of building a new type of democratic government structure. I think we can easily re-imagine this as a question of, at this point in history of our information becoming every more digital, whether we develop the technologies and associated social mechanics for reflection to inform choice, or will accounts of history and the force of the pressure of commerce to develop systems which have only their financial return on investment as their evolutionary driver?
16:26:57 From Frode Hegland : Governance is not only what politicians and bureaucrats do, as the humble steam pressure contraption which spun faster when there was more pressure but by so doing extended its ‘arms’ thus increasing the centrifugal force, illustrates, since it was called a ‘governor’. We govern ourselves, at every level. Will we be able to govern how we go about building the infrastructures through which we think, work and communicate? Or will this be done for us?

17:46:03 From Frode Hegland : in terms of rules, I guess the ‘ideal’ would be a fantastic computer game type environment for information views and connections which are clear, but we can always, Matrix style, exit the system to change the rules. Make sense?
