An Anthropologist following Gandhi (2)

India's first Prime Minister famously said "Don't spare me Shankar" (a leading Indian cartoonist). But #Gandhi did not spare Shankar ;) I wrote about this in my book Caricaturing Culture.

An anthropologist following Gandhi (3)

#Gandhi tapped the power of #cartoons & #public communication early into his journalistic career in #SouthAfrica. Cartoons could be Satyagraha (truth force). His #newspaper the Indian Opinion published and interpreted British cartoons.

Trying to do portfolio analysis for @zillionize🤓

It was never a traditional VC fund, and has one single evergreen LP @aspose, so I never analyzed nor reported IRR.

I'll probably split the portfolio into 2 "vintages" for comparison💡

2011 - 2014 (Fund I)
2014 - 2017 (Fund II)
@zillionize @aspose Since @zillionize was my after-work job when working as an operator at @aspose, it was an intentional decision to use @ycombinator as main deal-flow.

☑️I've always kept "2 jobs" since 2001 upon arrival at @GeorgiaTech for my PhD study: free tuition with research assistantship.
@zillionize @aspose @ycombinator @GeorgiaTech For now I'll focus on break-out winners for the sake of "power law" (lots of learning as we go).

So the multiples (10x, 20x, 30x etc.) are meant to be approximate within range so I won't accidentally disclose too much info to therefore delete my tweets later for that reason.

SFI President David Krakauer introduces our annual board of trustees symposium on New #Complexity #Economics - follow this thread for live coverage of talks by @EricBeinhocker @AKStanger @ole_b_peters @JacksonmMatt @cmoncap & W. Brian Arthur today...
"I think we have to be aware that we're not just discussing financial systems. We are discussing the future of the stability of the planet."

- David Krakauer
on #Complexity #Economics
"What is the #economy? I would argue that it doesn't exist in the physical world. It is a product of our #imagination. It is made out of #ideas. It does have an effect on the physical world. But the imagined order that we have is not succeeding."

1) THREAD: What to expect if the #US 🇺🇸withdraws from #NATO? At the Körber #PolicyGame, we discussed this scenario w/ high-level officials and experts in coop w/ @IISS_org - here are the summarized results for the Twitterati community: (have mercy, it’s my first thread!)
2) We wanted to know: How would Europeans react in such a situation?What are interests and red lines? Thus, we invited a 🇫🇷, 🇩🇪, 🇵🇱,🇬🇧, and 🇺🇸 team to play our scenario. Crisis in the #South, Crisis in the #East - were #Europeans able to get their act together w/out the 🇺🇸? 💪 🇪🇺
3) The short answer is: willing yes ❕but able❔ First, most teams focused on reversing a #US withdrawal from #NATO by all possible means, offering the 🇺🇸concessions that were unthinkable before - from #trade to #energy. But what if that doesn’t help? 🤔

1/ #Assange l'avait prédit pendant qu'on le calomniait et qu'on le maltraitait. Il disait que le monde changeait et que les soi-disant démocraties libérales devenaient des #autocraties. Une #démocratie qui envoie sa #police contre les journalistes et emporte leurs notes et

The US should regain the strategic initiative by laying down a “Googleable” trail of online info rapidly accessible to all, particularly when China's #MaritimeMilitia rises to the forefront.

Here's a start, based on 4+ years' research @NavalWarCollege:

andrewerickson.com/2018/11/secdef…
To preempt and counteract propaganda, the US must get out in front of the #PAFMM problem with its own authoritative statements, including a fact sheet and an encounter documentation website.

nationalinterest.org/feature/shinin…
Open-source researchers, including @ChinaMaritime Studies Institute @NavalWarCollege, have already published extensive scholarship to help reveal #China's #MaritimeMilitia.

The Office of Naval Intelligence @USNavy could be asked to fill in the gaps.

I suppose we can safely say that now #TheFrighteners have been so successfully and publicly put on a certain sector their combined angst will spew a diarrhoea of spin & warp whilst trying to use THAT VERY THING to generate $£Es Some with automated AdTech software already bought.
2/ Some bought by gormless companies, by mistake, some in full knowledge or partial knowledge of what it could do. It will be interesting as time goes on to see who apparently DIDN'T CARE about the likely instigation of its more negative 'dark' capabilities looking to 'side-step'
3/ or even 'wrong-foot' Irish & EU regulation standards, & possibly law. This too is a kind of #climatechange & #ClimateAction in itself, a would be mammoth untouchable iceberg of 'dominion' & 'control' being melted out into an ocean of citizens' scrutiny & advancement for change

Today, @NITIAayog released a Discussion Paper titled ‘National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence”. #AIforAll
niti.gov.in/writereaddata/…
We provide our initial thoughts on the paper here. 1/n
We welcome this initiative by @NITIAayog, but a call for comments would have been a welcome addition. The paper takes important steps forward from the #AI Task Force report released earlier this year by the DIPP, Ministry of Commerce and Industry (dipp.nic.in/sites/default/…). 2/n
This paper attempts a more holistic look at a broader range of issues concerning AI including #regulation, #ethics, #fairness, #transparency and #accountability. However, a number of issues still remain with this paper. 3/n
