centerless politic and old people!

I think I’ve worked out the social form that creates a dynamic, centerless politic! It’s come out of the experience of the ha-ha’s, and involves compression and expansion of the phase space of ¬£-people-time. Circulation of money in equity cycles, what I originally understood as horizontal and vertical but is now sequential in time, makes [...]

I will look at three conditions of social saturation: Red just starting with only you using the protocols Green with teams of people connected in a network using the protocols and Blue where a wide sector of people [...]

Coming to the end of the book, and I am fairly certain it is not going to be a big page-turner. I have started to pull together ideas for generating a hangout game show which crosses crowd-sourcing with social impact. Like a social version of kickstarter. the niche Currently, someone comes up with an idea [...]
