Time to get organised
Been quite tired since getting back from Ethiopia.Mostly it's also not taking to organize tasks as I normally do. This happens when your daily routine is interrupted. Luckily with the PDA, even while being blur, things don't get lost and I can tick off some of the easier tasks. It's a dangerous trap though, in not getting back to planning your day/week even if it's relatively light. The days start getting longer, and you end up doing less.
So tomorrow morning I'm going to get stuff sorted, especially since I'm going to be quite busy bootstrapping Inigo.
Todays linkI mentioned this in some blogs earlier but never got around to doing it. One thing that doesn't seem to have been studied or brushed off, is the restrictive role of IPR and it's impact on skills learning, but also the economic impact. One of the causes of unemployment is lack of mobility of human resources (workers). Usually in text books, they deal with it in terms of say agricultural and industrial workers. Lack of mobility within IT industry is equally bad. It means the human capital is lost and you have to keep retraining workers. It's not just training somebody to use ICT, it's constant retraining. You also have to think of the costs of market inefficiencies of mini monopolies due to restrictive licenses and software patents. All these inefficiencies end up as costs somewhere, and one sign of it is unemployment when demand is high.
