Arnold wins big
Dave Winer linked to a <a href="http://vote2003.ss.ca.gov/Returns/gov/mapB.htm">map</a> showing the voting breakdown. Other than the Bay Area, Arnold ran the table, getting 48% of the vote. What I find to be the most amazing statistic is that in a state of 35 million people, only six million voted - around 18%. Actually, it's probably a good thing that more people aren't politically interested. Can you imagine what life would be like if most people were...

Some seminal documents from Systems Theory
The discipline Operations Research (OR) has been highly influential. Robert McNamara and his Best and Brightest used OR techniques to plan and justify the way the Kennedy and Johnson Administrations ran the Vietnam... er, situation. (Eventually McNamara resigned, troubled by LBJ's decisions.)In 1979, Russ Ackoff wrote a paper that was a milestone in management thinking, though it is little known. Published in the Journal of the Operational Research Society at the height of OR's influence, The Future of Ooperational Research is Past (pdf) indicted the ways that OR had come to be used by its many practitioners. Ackoff followed that paper with a more hopeful one, titled Resurrecting the Future of Operational Research (also pdf). Shortly after he published these papers, Ackoff started the discipline of Social Systems Science and founded the Busch Center at Wharton, funded largely by Anheuser-Busch, one of Russ's major clients over time. Russ now heads Interact Design in Philadelphia. ...

Community Services for Enterprise Blognets
Community Services for Enterprise Blognets While your firewall protects you from intrusion, it also cripples the community software that keeps the blogosphere hopping. Here's are some of the services you might want to bring inside to help your blognets grow and prosper. The list grows, changes, and is not complete. I've grouped these services, arbitrarily, into three categories: Discovery, Reading, and Writing. Discovery services help you find stuff and navigate, and understand blognets and the blogosphere as a whole. Reading services help you keep up with relevant information. Writing helps you author and publish. Basic blogging service is extra. In your workplace: Which 3 are mandatory for a blognet pilot? What risks do you assume if you don't provide these services? Which services might you be better off operating in support of public employee and customer weblogs, even though they are the open blogosphere's services? What policy and IT operations issues do these services raise? ...

Idealized redesign
I've mentioned elsewhere that I'm a big fan of Russ Ackoff's thinking. Frustrated because I couldn't find a description of his methodologies for interactive planning and idealized redesign, I got permission to post a paper describing those processes (pdf format). I began to write a summary, but it is so crisply written that I recommend you read it yourself. What I will say is that idealized redesign made me realize that if you never take the time to imagine what you really should be doing, as an individual or organization, you'll never get there. It also brought home to me just how difficult a process redesign is, because we are so wedded to assumptions we don't notice, historic business models and other, often dysfunctional baggage we take for granted.
