Joi Ito's Web

Joi Ito's conversation with the living web.

Mitch Ratcliffe comments on my essay and writes about how the US faces similar problems. He makes some great points about how corporate interests are taking over the political system.

"Taking", they've pretty much taken it over, just look at the past corporate connections of the Bush administration to arms suppliers, and there is no surprise that they are going to war - best way to use em up so more ones have to bought.

Brings to mind an idea ... in the US, you usually see a politician's name printed like "J Smith (Democrat, San Francisco)" or just "J Smith (D,San Francisco)" maybe instead we should start printing their major employer (oops contributor) instead, e.g. "J Smith (D, Monsanto)"
