Here's the list of subjects put forward for discussion for July. As always
is a tie I'll select those that have tied and ask for you to re-vote.
There is only 1 vote per member so please don't go voting for more than 1
Those interested should submit their votes by 9pm New York time on Friday
I will not be forwarding the vote posts to the list but will post the final
results around midnight
(GMT) on Friday the 2nd so don't get worried that your post hasn't made it.
shall show all the voters on the CALL FOR VOTES final results so if you
don't see your name
on it email me then.
Any topic that is not used will be added to a page of potential topics which
can be re-used at a
later date if you so desire.
A reminder - Opinions on the June topic are invited.
Here's the list of topics on which to vote:
1) How does the MoQ see the open source software movement.
2) Two quotes from Lila regarding Culture:
"As the atomic physicist,Niels Bohr,said, "We are suspended in language."
intellectual description of nature is always culturally derived."
"Our scientific description of nature is always culturally derived.Nature
tells us only what
our culture predisposes us to hear.The selection of which inorganic patterns
and which to ignore is made on the basis of social patterns of value,or when
it is not,on
the basis of biological patterns of value."
Explain the above.
3) From LILA Chapter 24:
"The end of the twentieth century in America seems to be an intellectual,
social and economic rust-belt, a whole society that has given up on Dynamic
improvement and is slowly trying to slip back to Victorianism, the last
Lila was published in 1991 (and obviously written prior to its publication).
The end of the 20th century in America included arguably important social
events like the spread of the internet, arguably important economic events
like the stock-market bubble, arguably important scientific/intellectual
advances in computer technology, genetics, chaos theory, quantum physics,
