To whom does an idea, a poem or design really belong to?
I'd like to cite a quote that says it best. In a letter to Isaac McPherson, Tomas Jefferson writes: "...It would be curious then, if an idea, the fugitive fermentation of an individual brain, could, of natural right, be claimed in exclusive and stable property. If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it. Its peculiar character, too, is that no one possesses the less, because every other possesses the whole of it. He who receives an idea from me, receives instruction himself without lessening mine; as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without darkening me. That ideas should freely spread from one to another over the globe, for the moral and mutual instruction of man, and improvement of his condition, seems to have been peculiarly and benevolently designed by nature, when she made them, like fire, expansible over all space, without lessening their density in any point, and like the air in which we breathe, move, and have our physical being, incapable of confinement or exclusive appropriation. Inventions then cannot, in nature, be a subject of property. ...In some other countries it is sometimes done, in a great case, and by a special and personal act, but, generally speaking, other nations have thought that these monopolies produce more embarrassment than advantage to society; and it may be observed that the nations which refuse monopolies of invention, are as fruitful as England in new and useful devices." http://www.usewisdom.com/sayings/patentsj.html

I just saw another video on TED about open-source cancer research, which absolutely convinces me that all 'intellectual property' belongs to humanity, that no one entity should own it. That it is crazy to allow anyone to own this kind of information, for 2 reasons, 1st, the delay in progress that protective secrecy will inevitably cause. Without the open sharing of ideas and collaboration all over the planet, breakthroughs will be very slow. And 2nd, if a solution exists that could cure person or even save his life, this treatment should not be withheld from anyone and certainly not for considerations of monetary gain. Here's the Ted video: http://www.ted.com/talks/jay_bradner_open_source_cancer_research.html

Tax System that allows people to choose how their money would be spent.
I think it's a great idea. Instead of leaving the decision of resource allocation to the politicians. If any political party would want a budget allocated for their pet program they would have to present a spending plan. This would achieve at least 3 things 1, it could weed out any frivolous spending, 2, the public will be given a chance to provide input on how to better spend that money and can vote out any unjustifiable budget items, 3, the transparency imposes a built -in accountability. This would probably free up a lot funds that would otherwise be spent corruptly or ineptly. It doesn't have to be done all at once. We can start with the top 20-30% of the budget allocation and work our way to a 100%.This assessment can undertaken by students as part of their curriculum. Groups of cross- disciplined students can conduct the audit and assessments of the budgets and present their findings and recommendations to the public for consideration. The system won't be perfect but it can be streamlined over time. Just some thoughts, I want to put out there for refinement.

Jarreth Merz: Filming democracy in Ghana
Every nation has the ability to govern itself. To entertain a contrary notion is to give credence to the belief that another nation or entity must do this for them, and that is unacceptable. Even the 'super powers' struggle to to stay intact. Every nation make their own mistakes. And when the do, it doesn't mean that they are incapable of self-governance, it only means they have to find a better way; a way that works best for their people.

Cynthia Breazeal: The rise of personal robots
I think Cynthia's work is remarkable. I just can't figure out why we would want robots to do what humans should be doing. Why not teach people to reach out to each other instead of to robots? Humans are as real as they get, and there are billions if us on earth so why is this necessary at all? I think there is definitely a place for robots in our world, but not to replace another person in a relationship.
