Elinor Ostrom, the Commons and Anti-Capitalism. | Derek Wall | In 2009, the American political economist Elinor Ostrom became the first woman to win a Nobel Prize in Economics. Strictly speaking, she was neither an economist nor was the prize a Nobel but, in fact, the Swedish bank prize. Born “poor”, in her own words, in California in the summer of 1933, she published Governing the Commons in 1990 and died in 2012 of cancer. I was lucky enough to meet her myself and have been fortunate to spend the last two years researching her work in detail. I am an anti-capitalist, and while she would not have accepted this label, I will argue here that those who want to create a democratic and ecological economy that transcends the market and the state, will find enormous inspiration in her work.

Design Contractualism: … building in the rules that govern human behaviour for the collective good – in an effort to lay the ground for ethical algorithms. The piece is about Jeremy Pitt's work at Imperial College: The emergence of cognitive computing systems has stirred up fears in some quarters that they could remove a human sense of justice from decision-making.

Necessary but Not Sufficient: Modelling Online Archive Development in the UK. Introduction Since the mid 1990s archives have greatly expanded their online information and services, yet this is an area of archive development about which we know little.
We do not know the range of online services, features and information available, how these vary between archives or how they are delivered. The process of adding to our knowledge is hampered by the lack of a template for identifying and evaluating online archive information and services or a model for understanding their development. Without this information it is difficult to identify development paths, user requirements and appropriate technology, as well as the activities that can be supported or how archives compare to other information providers. 14 Easy Ways To Improve Any Piece Of Writing. “The struggle to improve our sentences, is the struggle to improve ourselves,” writes poet Mark Tredinnick.
