www.demos.co.uk

This is probably old hat to all the people that've been in the blogging community for a while, but there's some very interesting reads over at demos, which describes itself as follows:
Demos is a greenhouse for new ideas which can improve the quality of our lives. As an independent think-tank, our aim is to create an open resource of knowledge and learning that operates beyond traditional parties, identities and disciplines.

They've got an awesome report on the Pro-Am revolution, which, with the now emerging prominence of Open Source software and blogging, seems to be a defining feature of our times.

Another report, entitled "Dream On" discusses work-life balance with emphasis on sleep; expecially relavent to a few of the law bloggers out there.

It's all well written, engaging and the ideas are interesting, so they're well worth the read. They publish under creative commons too, which is nice. Links to the reports are on the main page.

Well, No. As much as I'd like, the world isn't *quite* that small. "Mechanical Turk" is a reference to an old chess playing automaton in Europe that turned out to be a hoax. It had a person in it controlling the moves that were made; this didn't stop a lot of people being fooled however. See wikipedia.

And in case you're interested, no, I'm not turkish; I just play chess. Although the same assumption has been made before...
