Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Following World War II and the onset of the Cold War with the Soviet Union, the US undertook a series of measures to strengthen the resilience of the country. These included a significant expansion of government support for scientific research in universities and R&D labs, leading to product innovations from the private sector and better weapons from the defense industry, - and making the US the most prosperous and secure nation in the world.

Figuring the future

Doc Searls

The weekend of March 7-8, on our drive to Baltimore (where we would visit the grandkids one last time before the lockdown came), we tried to talk about the likely cascading effects that would come if large parts of the economy shut down.
