msb-0140 Proxies for nations

msb-0140 Proxies for nations


[DJ Jeff intro 3]

---- "Its a Crime by The Corvairs" by: "The Dwarwes/The Plan Nine Rock Show"

Feedback come first, so...

Did you catch "Herrad"'s show on Friday?

How about "MDMHvonPA" Roundup on Friday too?

And I'm wondering how "Homer" doing in Athens... There is a lot of site and podcast episode downloading activity from that part of the world.

---- "Another Perfect Crime " by: "aegis"

Feed Forward comes next, so...

[ ... wistling sound ... loon cries ... ]

Told you, its "your" segment.

Come and fill it.

It worked for "Herrad", "MDMHvonPA" and "Homer". It can work for you too.

---- "Life Of Crime" by: "Alun Parry"

Feed Me comes third, so...

Do you have a therapy, product, good or service that is of interest to MSers?

Consider advertising on this podcast.

Reminders on this segment only cost $0.03 per reminder per download of an episode. (A $30CPM targeted at MSers.)

It can/should lead to a full ad, in text, audio or video, which costs $3.00 per download.

That sounds expensive until you do the math and realize that if nobody downloads it it costs you nothing, unlike print, where you often can't even get an ad in to the specialized journals, or radio or TV where you'd just be wasting your money with the 0.0833% MSers rate of return. (That's about six times "below" the level of "statistical noise".)

But MSBPodcast is 100% in your market, and you only pay per download of your material.

No play, no pay.

Reach the MSers who would buy your therapy, product, good or service, with-out having to waste your advertising money on anyone who is "not" interested...

Main Topic: Proxies for nation.

RadioOpenSource [ ] had a fascinating show about the double edged sword of the internet.

Moore's law
['s_law ] is being applied asymmetrically by an international criminal element (includings "The Base" a.k.a. "Al Queda") to gain advantage over the national barriers of law and order.

"Illicit" by: Moisés Naím (ISBN: 0-385-51392-5) is one book that explores the people and institutions who work outside of the national limitations of the law.

(The law is rarely absolute. The root of the term "legal" is "legare" which is Latin for "choose". Law is a "choice" we make in order to co-exist. [One man's crime is another man's legal right which explains why the state can murder its citizens but not the other way around. Its not an institution founded on "Moral Absolutism".])

---- "Sweet Crime" by: "Joe Faulder"

Main Topic, part deux:

How can the double edged sword be turned to work with us to help us secure a future?

Actually, it cant.

The "soit-disant" post-Soviet mafia, as one example of such an organization, is actually comprised of people in various locations who come together locally to work out issues of turf and distribution of nefarious goods and services without regard to any border or nation.

They ride roughshod over the rights and property of the citizens of where they operate as a matter of course.

But their actions can point to more international collaboration and other cost-free sharing and collaboration agreements. Like our patent medecine system which could/should/would evolve into a world patent agreement system where getting a patent in one country immediately confers protection in all countries.

At the moment, good ideas which occur in, say, Laos, only have protection within the confines of the Laotian borders. The meta-information about the idea, how the idea was conceived, isn't even addressed in the law which means that its at risk from the very second its conceived.

If this meta-information was to be covered by law and recognized as part of a common global sharing license, the value of information would be recognized and create a global pool as the basis for recognizing the wealth of nations based on what they share, not what they hoard.

Now I'm not saying that we should indebt ourselves into a "potlatch" society; quite the opposite; I'm saying that whoever contributes into the pool has that contribution quantified and recognized, and the monetization of any meta-information can occur according to the contribution of any state or any individual contributor.
