The wise, one alone, unwilling and willing to be spoken of only by the name of #Zeus, the name of Life.

- #Heraclitus 113

[Kahn 1979, pp. 267-271]
“With deliberate antimony #Heraclitus here presents his positive conception of the divine ... The #aphorism is unusually dense and puzzling, full of conflicting forces mysteriously under control.”

- Kahn, ‘Art and Thought of #Heraclitus,’ 1979, pp. 267
“... for #Heraclitus as for Aeschylus ‘#etymology’ must be taken literally: an ‘etymos #logos’ is a ‘true statement’ hidden in the form of a name ... the name ‘Zēnos’ affirms that the supreme #deity is also a principle of life, like the ‘everliving fire’ ...”

- Kahn 1979 p. 270

The #progressive #policy #paradox: a thread for the day that’s in it

Or: why #popular #power comes from below

In honour of our “#left and progressive unity” friends and GP voters

I started developing software 35+ years ago and sw people mostly ran sw companies. That changed. Today traditional businesses must transform to software companies, or die, but business experts aren't largely *teaming* with software experts. #Paradox and #seachange is needed.
What if software experts once again ran software companies, which means most companies? Clearly some business people understand the power of software. How do we engender more of them? #thoughtexperiment
Sounds like the kind of help we need in @kalele_io and with @vlingo_io Building trust comes though simplicity, not over-complicated solutions. Need quick iterations rendering marked knowledge acquisition and solution refinements. Everything else is junk.
