Positive Energy for Change, for a Change

Change is hard. I spend a lot of time trying to enable, encourage, foster, stimulate, provoke, change in software.

Part of that is because it feels like it’s that most plastic of human endeavors. That, of course, is only true to the extent that the people involved in the creation of software _are_ plastic.

One of the fascinating things in the last few months is that it feels that, with the Obama administration, people are thinking big about societal change, in a variety of contexts.

The latest one to cross my twitter stream is Carl Malamud’s bid for the government printing office, which is full of great, big ideas. So cool.

Read up about it: http://yeswescan.org/, and follow the links to the proposals & the videos. They’re quite compelling, optimistic, ambitious, and, I’m sure, threatening to the status quo. At the very least, it’s a great conversation.

Godspeed, Carl.
