A Timeline of Design History
The archives of Design Quarterly are available online as free PDF downloads. "Very much like the children who are caught between the old math and the new, today’s designers have to face the computer age, turn away from security of the familiar and learn to adapt the new methods." Peter Seitz, 1966.

What a gem!

Testing Open Leadership Map Use Cases – Read, Write, Participate – Medium
Mozilla has been working on an analytical framework called Open Leadership Map. It's a set of self-assessment tools and guidelines to help organizations work in the open. As someone who's been working very much in the open, this comes pretty natural to me, but there were a ton of pointers I found very useful when I ran through some of these simple tests. For example, when looking at ThingsCon, we should get better at building stronger systems for accountability and for empowering local stakeholders. Two thumbs up.

A note by the way, even though I've been working more closely with Mozilla and this coincides with me mentioning more Mozilla projects: I'm not on a mission to promote Mozilla (even though I do like and promote some of their initiatives), and I'm not paid to do marketing on their behalf (but have been paid in the past to do research, and may continue this research) - it's just that as I learn more about their work, projects like this are surfaced to me in ways they weren't before, so I'm getting a better overview of the many things going on there.

(Mozilla, I love you, but your online presences make it really hard to get that kind of overview.)

Taking AI to the edge
In her newsletter, Stacey Higginbotham discusses AI at the edge (which is industry speak for on the device as opposed to in the cloud), where AI is currently predominantly happening. For example, Amazon & Google have traditionally been very cloud-focused: That's to be expected in internet companies. (It's even reflected in the thinking of Google's smart city unit, Sidewalk Labs, which designs cities to be built "from the internet up".) But there are strong arguments to be made to put AI closer to the edge:

Ai at the edge could have "tremendous impact on privacy and the speed of improvement in connected devices. If a machine can learn without sending data to the cloud, then that data could stay resident on the device itself, under user control."

Because what doesn't have to go to the cloud doesn't have to be under anyone else's control. And for many contexts that's a very good thing indeed. (I know some smart people at Google and presumably the other big tech companies are working on that, too; different schools of thought exist within each of these organizations.) I, for one, look forward to seeing more happen at the edge.

Photo of a single atom wins science photo contest
Look at this: "a photo of a single strontium atom suspended in an electric field taken by David Nadlinger". Because f*** yeah, science.

Malicious AI Report
This report, building on "a 2 day workshop held in Oxford, UK" (not many details available, but the participant list seems legit at first glance), explores the potential for malicious uses of AI, and how to tackle/prevent them: "Less attention has historically been paid to the ways in which artificial intelligence can be used maliciously. This report surveys the landscape of potential security threats from malicious uses of artificial intelligence technologies, and proposes ways to better forecast, prevent, and mitigate these threats."

I have yet to fully read the whole thing, but it seems like a solid primer on AI gone bad.

Why Decentralization Matters – Chris Dixon – Medium
Chris Dixon writes about the importance of decentralization to move to the next stage of the internet (in his words stage 3, as opposed to the current, highly centralized stage 2). I *think* I agree with this sentiment—the current state of affairs certainly seems a little *sub-prime*.

That said, Dixon says the way there leads via blockchains; which may or may not be true;

Which brings me to a third aspect—and one with which I violently disagree. Going from his rock solid arguments about the inherent risks and weaknesses of high levels of centralization, and his call for greater decentralization, Dixon comes to the conclusion that the financial incentives of cryptocurrencies are the carrot to get *developers et al* on board. This transactional model, tied directly to financial payoff, seems risky. What's more, it seems banal and tired and outdated.

The incentive should be, I don't know, *bigger*. Think along the lines of "here's a network that you can build the future and your lives on if you just help maintaining it a little." Is that not incentive enough? Is it too vague? Offering people pocket change for cleaning up seems to sad for anything we can refer to as "stage 3".
