Dialectics of randomness

Starting the new year out on a random note:

Statistics of Aaarrgh! (and again, here)

Dialectics for kids! (or, Chairman Mao Meets the 7 Habits of Highly Successful People)

Dialectics of American Politics! (by the excellent Billmon)

Science fiction writers argue about solving the socialist calculation problem! (with bonus Eric Raymond reference)

IKEA socialism.

Speaking of dialectics, if the semantic web is the thesis, folksonomy is the antithesis, what is the synthesis? Some efforts to answer this one. Warning: last link contains ugly word mashup folktologies, yech.
