Subject: This article in The New York Times: "The No. 10 Dashboard and
Cybernetics"

Friends and colleagues,

In this address you'll find an interesting article on real e-Government:
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/30/opinion/the-no-10-dashboard-and-cybernetics.html?hp

Stafford Beer's professional problem was to think fifty years ahead of his
times. When I worked with him in Uruguay, in 1987, I thought he was twenty
years ahead, but now I think he was 50 years ahead.

I still remember him telling me: "I want Sanguinetti to be the first
president to speak to a computer"

All the best

Gabriel
