Hi Phil,

I have heard quite a bit about Planck Scale physics lately.  IMHO this is cool stuff, but extremely dangerous as an organizational or governance fad.  In particular, there is no provenance, so two day old meta data about "bad" guys is now about "good" guys, and second, a 24x7 world of conserved energy descends into 24x14 days of 6 hours sleep.  This destroys the "common wisdom" around Work-Life Balance.  

I wrote a brief White Paper if you are interested* ...

            Call for
               Uses of
 Open Data Within Government
   for Innovation and Efficiency
          Samos, Greece
      30 June - 1 July 2014
 You are warmly invited to participate in the first of a
 series of workshops being organised during this year and
 next by the Share-PSI 2.0 Thematic Network [1]. Partners
 from 25 countries are working on issues surrounding the
 implementation of the European Commission's revised PSI
 Directive and this will feed into the W3C Data on the Web
 Best Practices Working Group [2].
 We're beginning with "Uses of Open Data Within Government
 for Innovation and Efficiency" [3] - i.e. we're looking for
 cases where opening data has made it easier for government
 departments (local or national) to do their job better. What
 worked? What didn't work? What lessons can you share with
 others? What would most help you benefit from other people's
 The workshop is taking place as part of the 5th Samos Summit
 on ICT-Enabled Governance [4] which means participants can
 look forward to spending time on a beautiful island in the
 Aegean sea, formerly the home of Pythagoras.
 Entry is by position paper which should not be a full
 academic paper, rather, a short description of what you'd
 like to talk about.
 Deadline for submissions: 13 April
 Notification of acceptance: 1 May

 the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) as part of the
 Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme.
