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
