Lunchtime list for June 7th

Here are the articles and web pages the Talk Issues team recommend today:

  • Collaborative Democracy in Second Life – Remember the Second Life hype a while back? The service is still around, and some of its participants are involved in thinking about political decision-making structures within it. Here's a blog post from Gwyneth Llewelyn on collaborative and representative democracy in her corner of the Second Life universe.
  • 50 years of Jean‑Luc Godard’s Breathless – It's 50 years since A Bout du Souffle was released. Philip French in the Observer recalls seeing the trailer as a young man, and the cinema and politics of the New Wave.
  • Fifty Political Manifestos and Platforms of Our Time – This is quite fun: links to fifty manifestos of political movements, ranging from the main US and UK parties to the First North American Secessionist Convention.
