image We are all waiting for the premiere at the Venice Film Festival.  We have seen the trailer but won’t really know the impact until the move is imageunveiled.  We will have it here in a few weeks in Los Angeles.  The one comment below about the insurance loopholes is interesting too as I just posted something in that area yesterday.    Algorithms determine and create credit ratings too, give that some thought. 

If You Think The “So Called Death Panels” are Something To Worry About – Read This and Get Educated**

Healthcare and Wall Street are all tied in together.  Perhaps for his next movie we could see something titled like “I Want Your Code” as a focus, or “Open Source Algorithms Needed”.  Certainly this is my “geek” twist on this, but folks we down to “it is what it is”, so for those who don’t read and quite get a grip on how this is all being manipulated, please read up, it’s the only power we have, “education”, so please use this wonderful tool called “the internet’ and school up.  I do my best here with even keeping a link to help folks learn what an “algorithm” is, so I hope it gets read. 

The 3 words for HealthCare Reform in my opinion should be as follows:  Education, Education, Education, what do you think?   In his new movie it appears that by using entertainment, Michael Moore is into exploring the use of algorithms and his methods do it on the big screen.

We need a new department in the government to help the SEC who has already shown they need help, these government departments don’t have the geeks and coders to go up against private industry who does have the geeks and who also get paid well. 

“Department of Algorithms – Do We Need One of These to Regulate Upcoming Laws? 

Vice President Biden wants videos too, why, so we can study and see how those algorithms are creating all of this, inquiring minds want to know. 

“In mathematics, computing, linguistics, and related subjects, an algorithm is an effective method for solving a problem using a finite sequence of instructions. Algorithms are used for calculation, data processing, and many other fields.”

In so many words, Warren Buffet makes a profound statement here too:  Beware of Geeks Bearing Formulas  Beware of the companies that direct the geeks to write and manipulate the formulas and algorithms.

The direct theme of the movie from what I read is not healthcare directly, but you would have to be living under a rock not to connect the fact that healthcare and Wall Street are joined at the hip and now that mortgages have rocked out, are they looking towards the Human Hedge Fund as their next frontier?   There’s nothing wrong with investing money in companies and hoping for a return on their growth, like the stock market was designed to do, but with technology we are venturing so far from where the purposes of the financial world began and now look more like one big gambling casino instead, with some pretty cold calculated algorithms running the bets.  BD

"Banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies." So wrote Thomas Jefferson to a friend in 1816. Now Michael Moore, whose Fahrenheit 9/11 took on the U.S. Army, and the entire military-executive-industrial establishment, brings his latest documentary, Capitalism: A Love Story, to the Venice Film Festival. The land of Macchiavelli and the Medici is the perfect setting for Moore's nonfiction tragicomedy of greed and chicanery on Wall Street, in Washington, D.C., and through the entire economic apparatus. The movie will have its world premiere here tonight, before playing the Toronto Film Festival next week, opening Sept. 23 in New York and Los Angeles and achieving wide release Oct. 2

**Moore eagerly counts the ways. He lays out the "Dead Peasants" insurance loophole by which a corporation can take out policies on their rank-and-file workers and, when they die, reap millions in tax-free payouts.

At the end Moore says, "I refuse to live in a country like this — and I'm not leaving." But this call to arms demands more than a ringleader; it requires a ring, an engaged citizenry who are mad enough not to take it any more.
