Constructive tone is recommended for smart markets after recent election upset, or perhaps it’s just a meteorological mashup. In any case, the Internet means business. Time may be seen as racing ahead, so minutiae may be interesting to futurist historians, e.g. regarding rise of the digital economy. Governments are obviously competing for control. In the US, large corporations seem to own the court so press probably begins to probe partisan boardroom battles. Consultants may emerge as staff is shed. After the ‘87 meltdown, Congress sought to maximize tax income and required incorporation for these individuals. Fed, state, local and global may look to some like orthogonal street signs. The adage seems to be that, after the rhetoric, government resists reductions in cost increases until that itself becomes the bubble. Workaround may be for organizations to handle reporting and persons ideas. (Attempt to keep straight-face.) Reputations and referrals then follow. Have previously discussed opportunities for interoperability in new official computer systems; this assumes any corruption is constantly cleared, however past pardons indicate things do not always progress in a direction of protecting the public. Take it to your leaders.

Wetpaint recently had issues regarding ads raising caution flags in browser, but was still usable. NFL playoffs haven’t been the same for the past couple of seasons without the Pats. Other than that, no China exploits to report. Activity at the outposts:

Invited that is. Question for the analysts: After the past three decades, and present seeming fubar status, what are likely spinoffs for industry? The details probably work themselves out, though it may not recognize itself afterward. State reporting is laborious, especially for entrepreneurs, though late fees are a quick profit. Citizens have own opinions about senate, paid for by mounting losses. It is not clear what special interests have in store for next decade. Whoever is selected for national will have a challenge past rebound sentiments. What would really be effective, how citizens deal with berserker regs,  and better globalism factors for self-determination are still to be discerned. On a society note, human rights is still trying to find its way to the street. When the boss’s away, the mob will play. Marshalling of arbiters and enforcers is not a complete solution; noone said liberty is blind, only attempting escape. It is not about guilt or the good who are prostheticized young. There may be a hidden “for all” in the balance. (The one without weakness is too elusive.)  The rest continue to count their fingers or use cutouts. In the absence of science, mythology may become more mainstream, though revolts are still subject to reason. The new year justifies optimistic initiatives, some will be longer-term. Economic upturns will choose their champions. Errors of past decade will be better understood and corrected to avoid repetition and worsening. Collaboration may have new branches past open-source, web and social, e.g. multi-enterprise perhaps as early aspect of cloud. Academics tend to weigh ideas carefully. Conversely, fiction, art or music may be more imaginative, impulsive, irrational and reflect dynamics of real world representations or responses. Answers in drama are not prohibited yet.
