Or Just Doing It. Following on from Peter’s last couple of posts (here and here): some rebel media reports about the rage that’s erupted in France of late (and whose energy we should all be trying to tap for the benefit of those who live and work where we do). It’s important to watch and share this stuff. Never underestimate the ‘monkey see, monkey do’ heuristic! In a way, the conditions for a global uprising already exist. There’s plenty to be furious about wherever…

Some of the comments at the IOPS members survey on the future of IOPS suggest that some of the members don’t have an accurate idea of the actual state of affairs at this moment.
