Is IT Ethical (via Cognitive Noise)

I have read that knowing the right questions may well be better than knowing the answers. This is because you can always ask the questions again when circumstances change and what used to be the answers is now irrelevant.

These are good questions.

I liked the opening comments about War and Peace. I never was able to get very far with it either but I did see the Russian six-hour movie. Maybe that counts.

Special thanks to Cognitive Noise (The best blog title I have seen in quite some time.)

Hidden Agenda to derail Anti-Corruption Drive? (via Deshpandevm’s Blog)

I found this an interesting commentary on the anti-corruption movement in India.

I find the level of suspicion to be right about the same level as mine. Which maybe healthy or not. Nevertheless, any successful movement must take account of its enemies and I like the article’s predictions as the moves likely to be made. I would have suggested many of the same ones. The one that I focused on immediately was putting loopholes in the legislation to make enforcement impossible. In America, the use of loopholes (known as jokers in American law) is endemic. I strongly agree they are a major danger.

Anyway, read the article. This movement may change the world. It deserves attention.

The massive public response it evoked shook the crisis managers of the government. 24 x 7 media coverage had multiplier effect to spread the message and participation to the remote corners of India. As the response of the government unf … Read More
