calibre - E-book management
"It can view, convert, edit and catalog e-books in all of the major e-book formats. It can also talk to e-book reader devices. It can go out to the internet and fetch metadata for your books. It can download newspapers and convert them into e-books for convenient reading."

GUI with regex search but also can be used by CLI.

A lighter alternative (which is also written in Python) is 'Ebook Viewer' (

It is cross platform, running on Linux, Windows and macOS. For Android there exists the paid app 'Calibre Companion' ( which can sync to library on desktop. There's a simple alternative E-Book (epub) reader for Android called 'Document Viewer' ( yet that one can't sync.

A Magna Carta for Inclusivity and Fairness in the Global AI Economy
Excerpt of analysis:
"Advancements in intelligent machinery may force us to codify the processes by which decisions are made. Should your self-driving Uber be allowed to break traffic regulations in order to safely merge onto the highway? To what extent are algorithms as prone to discriminatory patterns of thinking as humans – and how might a regulatory body make this determination?"

"- Machine meritocracy
- Balance of power
- Machine decisions
- Personal choice [not needed anymore, depriving us of encounters and friction]
- Polarization [reinforcing our beliefs and values without the random opportunity to check them]
- Who makes judgements?
- Discrimination and bias"

"A new charter of rights

Therefore, we propose a Magna Carta for the Global AI Economy — an inclusive, collectively developed, multi-stakeholder charter of rights that will guide our ongoing development of artificial intelligence and lay the groundwork for the future of human-machine co-existence and continued, more inclusive, human growth. Whether in an economic, social, or political context, we as a society must start to identify rights, responsibilities, and accountability guidelines for inclusiveness and fairness at the intersections of AI and human life. Without it, we will not establish enough trust in AI to capitalize on the amazing opportunities it can and will afford us."

Global shipping boss charts course through troubled waters
August 14, 2017 | Financial Times | by Richard Milne.

When AP Moller-Maersk came under cyber attack this year, chief executive Soren Skou was presented with a very basic problem: how to contact anyone. The June attack was so devastating that the Danish conglomerate shut down all its IT systems. The attack hit Maersk hard. Its container ships stood still at sea and its 76 port terminals around the world ground to a halt. ...Skou had no intuitive idea on how to move forward....Skou was “at a loss”, but he decided to do three things quickly.
(1) “I got deep in.” He participated in all crisis calls and meetings. “To begin with, I was just trying to find out what was happening. It was important to be visible, and take some decisions,” he says. Maersk is a conglomerate, so IT workers needed to know whether to get a system working for its oil business or container shipping line first.
(2) He focused on internal and external communication. Maersk sent out daily updates detailing which ports were open and closed; which booking systems were running and more. It also constructed a makeshift booking service from scratch.
(3)Skou says he made sure frontline staff in the 130 countries it operates in were able to “do what you think is right to serve the customer — don’t wait for the HQ, we’ll accept the cost”.

He says that he has learnt there is no way to prevent an attack. But in future, the company must “isolate an attack quicker and restore systems quicker”. He adds that Maersk will now approach its annual risk management exercises in a different spirit. “Until you have experienced something like this — people call them ‘black swan’ events — you don’t realize just what can happen, just how serious it can be.”

Danish conglomerate AP Moller-Maersk is planning to expand into transport and logistics ...

....Mr Skou’s plan for Maersk is about shrinking the company to grow — a “counterintuitive” approach, he concedes. Maersk’s revenues have stagnated since the global financial crisis and the solution has been to jettison what has often been its main provider of profits, the oil business.

In its place, Mr Skou has already placed his bet on consolidation in the shipping industry.....His real push is in bringing together the container shipping, port terminals, and freight forwarding businesses so as to make it “as simple to send a container from one end of the world to the other as it is to send a parcel with FedEx or UPS”. That requires quite a cultural shift in a group where independence was previously prized.....Another priority is to digitalise the group. “It is pretty messy,” Mr Skou says cheerfully. Unlike most businesses selling to consumers who offer few possibilities to change much, almost everything is up for negotiation between Maersk and its business customers — from delivery time, destination, cost, speed, and so on. “It’s easy to talk about digitalising things; it’s quite difficult to do in a B2B environment. It’s hard to digitalise that complexity,”

The nonsense of 'knowledge management'
Lo que manda es sistemas de información, confunden entre información y KM, entre organización del trabajo y KM. Movimiento de consultoras, conocimiento no es un objeto, una actividad. Las escuelas de negocio prestigiosas no lidian con KM. Tácito confundido con implícito, que tiene el potencial de ser expresado. Comunidades en espacios con autonomía, ellos mismos se forman objetivos.

"Idea management system (IDMS), adapted for companies & organizations interested in sharing strategic decisions and future planning of products and services with their customers.

It is a perfect tool for decision makers and their analysts who need to take strategic decisions, and wish to expand their view of the problem with the poser of the crowd, whether these are the organization's employees or any other public.

OpenideaL is an open source project based on Drupal CMS and therefore it is modular, and allows growth and adaptation to the organization’s specific needs. These adaptations may include a unique design, polls and surveys, interfacing with external applications such as Facebook or to applications within the organization itself, and adapting the interface to a range of devices: phones, desktops, tablets or kiosks."

"Goal of the project is to construct an ontology that will model Idea Management Systems. However, we also devote to study in detail the appliance of the data schema onto existing systems and exploiting it to achieve real, measurable benefits.
providing rebust data integration capabilities and additional data analysis tools though rich metadata descriptions. Both of those features are derived from the use of Semantic Web technologies to interconnect data inside the Idea Management Systems with assets published by other systems and across the World Wide Web."

Has an applicable Idea Management System called 'IdeaStream'. It collects ideas from communities via web form to submit ideas structured into various description parts (e.g. idea title, problem description, solution etc.) and attach any desirable content (e.g. images).

It sets up on Drupal CMS as module.

The GI2MO project is an initiative of GSI group of the Universidad Politecnica de Madrid (UPM).

The Role of Linked Data and Semantic-Technologies for Sustainability Idea Management
"Idea Management Systems (IMS) manage the innovation lifecycle from the moment of invention until ideas are implemented in the market. During
the lifecycle the IMS supports collaboration, allows idea enrichment with comments, contextual data, or connected to other relevant ideas. Semantic technologies can improve the knowledge management capabilities of IMSs allowing relevant information to be easily linked to ideas.

Many Enterprises concerned with sustainability encourage employee’s participation as a means to boost creative innovation within their Sustainability Initiatives. However little work has examined the role of an IMS within Sustainability. In this paper we analyse the impact of a semantic-enabled IMS within a
sustainability innovation process. In particular, how ideas can be enriched with contextual Linked Open Data (LOD), especially Life-Cycle Assessment (LCA) data, to improve the understanding, implication and value of the idea from the sustainability perspective."

Journal of Social Media for Organizations JSMO
"Created as an open-access, peer-reviewed, electronic journal. It seeks to strike a balance between social media technology and the behavioral research that investigates how people use social media for the good of an enterprise. JSMO focuses on high-quality empirical investigations, analyses, theories, and case studies in social media development and usage.

They look for ways that social media can internally improve their employees' collaboration, information dissemination, organizational responsiveness, product quality, expertise finding, and organizational cohesion; and externally enhance relationships and interactions with and among customers, stakeholders, or interest groups. Research and technologies showing the effectiveness of different approaches for designing, developing, evaluating, and using social media are welcome."

Subordinated and finance by MITRE, a USA government research organization (note: especially in hindsight to defense / military).
