    nethunt: a newbie in SpaceCollective and an introduction


    Hi,

    I'm Kari A. Hintikka, Finnish foresighter, fact book and *punk writer, concept and usability designer, retired kyberpunker (long live mirrorshades Bi ). During last twenty years on thee Net, I've mostly done my stuff in Finnish. I'm making my PhD about netcrowds e.g. how people on thee Net self-organize themselves to reach mutually agreed complex goals and tasks, like Net detectives or how people arranged themselves to survive and reconstruct the infrastructure after Katrina hurricane 2005 when the official bodies just didn't know what to do.

    At the moment I'm writing a biopunk story The Metabolist, around in year 2075, when - maybe - the molecular and biotechnologies have replaced current silicon-based tech and how it might change all, again :) I suppose I publish here both semiacademic 'fact' thoughts and guesses of foresighting and some fiction excerpts from The Metabolist story. The base atmospshere of The Metabolist I try to humble reach is the footsteps of Dick, Ellroy, Gibson, Rucker, Sterling, Thompson, the usual suspects :) In leisure time, I'm compose industrial spaghettiwestern music http://www.ubiq.fi  and in summer, nursering my japanese tea garden.

    Some topics

    As a newbie, it's always polite to tell something about topic, interests and motives. I'm a holistic far out phreak, interested in everything: Make-your-mammals home growing kit, Delta Pearl plan to create a megapolis of some 150 million inhabitants in China, self-organizing maps, collective intelligence, constructed and virtual identities, social experiment to simulate Mars flight in Russia, media ecology on thee Net (semantic viruses etc.), HP:s CeNSE global sensor and tracking system, synthetic biology, how noise and buzz start to filter to data and the to information in Twitter, just to name a few.

    But with human communication and thoughts, I'm a oldskooler. In Facebook, for example, I'm actively because it's one of my work place to make observations and interpretations. But basically I appreciate long thoughts and that someony has put time and brains to express herself or himself.

    That's the reason I asked an invitation to SpaceCollective. I'm very pleased to the collective for accepting me. To meet people for talking for example about body artist Stelarc or how Nikola Tesla borrowed - but didn't remember to ask beforehand - some electricity from the city of New York for making some personal experiments =)

    Sorry in advance, I'm not writing read-proof English. Specially I'm handicapped with "a":s and "the":s :)
