Attended a very good conversation with Audrey Tang (唐凤), Taiwan’s digital minister.

There are many nuggets still to mine from the notes. On the SDG’s and radical transparency for instance.

One thing, because I could find it in full online, is the poem as job description, the minister recited early on in the conversation:

When we see “internet of things”, let’s make it an internet of beings.
When we see “virtual reality”, let’s make it a shared reality.
When we see “machine learning”, let’s make it collaborative learning.
When we see “user experience”, let’s make it about human experience.
When we hear “the singularity is near”, let us remember: the Plurality is here.

There’s much to like in those lines. It almost reads like a concise version of the tech pledge.
