Infopolicy – Zacqary Adam Green: The world’s first mass-market open source video game console is not going to turn the video game industry upside down any time soon. But in 20 years, it is going to turn every industry upside down. This cheap little box is going to have a profound effect on every kid that grows up with it, and they’ll go into business and politics wondering why the rest of the world doesn’t work like their good old little Ouya.
Phi Beta Iota: We agree. Governments are being irresponsible in not paying respectful attention to Open Source Everything (OSE – the technical solution) and Multinational, Multiagency, Multidisciplinary, Multidomain Information-Sharing and Sense-Making (M4IS2 – the human solution). We do not believe in “world government” as a top down proposition, we do believein Panarchy (bottom up citizen self-governance) and we also believe that at this point in time, selected multinational organizations such as NATO could make a huge difference in fostering a new attitutde toward innovation in the public service.
