extreme democracy indeed

in case anyone wondered what i was up to this past spring, you can now see my contribution to extreme democracy (chapter 16).

6.4 billion points of light [pdf].

and if anyone’s interested, i am making a push on my little “eat your own dogfood” approach to democracy and technology, so if you’re a geek with some time on your hands, an interest in political discourse, and feel like making a run at a project that might just re-enfranchise people starting in washington, dc… get in touch. we’ll do lunch (or maybe not lunch) and take a stab at changing the world.

zombie bloggers alive!

just a little self-appreciation here… from metafilter i saw this…

Marqui Product Placement in Blogs [ november 24, 2004]

On Monday, a squad of around 15 independent bloggers will begin inserting mentions of Marqui’s hosted communications management services into their blogs for money.

The bloggers will get $800 a month to mention Marqui with a link once a week in their blogs and post its emblem on a page. They’ll get an additional $50 per qualified sales lead they send to Marqui.

“We hit on the idea of [connecting with] heavily read, influential bloggers who create public discussion groups and get feedback,” said Stephen King, Marqui CEO. “But there are no mechanisms for them to make money. So we came up with idea of paying them.”

yeah… we hit on that idea too.

“we will match your product to one or more of our well-respected and popular bloggers, who will sing its praises, kiss your… whatever, and create buzz in the highly-networked universe of the bloggers.”

giving thanks

thanks to those among us that feel a compulsion to serve; to those that do a job because it’s something important to do, and not because it’s a paycheck; to those under-paid and under-appreciated people that take the jobs that make the most difference for most of the people.

to the teachers, the librarians, the social workers, the farmers, the police, the firefighters, the troops, the artists and the parents…

thank you for what you do
