Hoisted from the Archives: Yesterday I was bitching to the team at "ParsonsTKO | A Digital Transformation Agency" http://parsonstko.com/, which is in charge of thinking about the redesign of the Equitable Growth Website http://equitablegrowth.org, about not just our failure but the general failure of the internet to bring things from the stock into the flow—to have a memory. The original hope was that Google http://google.com would be that memory, but full-text combined with word-nearness search plus pagerank does not do the job. So I was arguing that Equitable Growth should hire somebody whose job—at least part of whose job—is to ask: what is the thing that Equitable Growth has ever published that is most relevant to live concerns and issues today?; and then repost and highlight that thing. Plus we need an indexing grammar, ontology, whatever, that makes the most relevant thing easy to search for and find.
But I can do this for my own website, myself—if I find time. So here we are: what the country should be doing about ObamaCare right now, hoisted from my archives from 2004:
