This is very exciting, especially considering the people attached to it, and attachable to it.
Will spend more than the 20 seconds I've given this, but this statement jumps out as perhaps premature and assumes only one monetization strategy - "monetize that value through ethical re-sale and incentivization of personal data"

Interesting experiment indeed !
A word about the term 'termination' which I find a bit alien to Fluid Fractal Organisms and even more to what one might mean in 'commitment'. What might be terminated is the participation in goal oriented specific activities. However, those principles, values and views that serve as the substantial defining elements of this agreement and the intentional stances emerging from it (I would call them core affirmations) should better be held outside temporal boundaries. In other words, termination is not applicable to them. Instead, they are constantly subject to constructive scrutiny and collaborative iteration which again does not involve goal oriented specifics but is conducted in parallel to such activities.

This is to my eyes a brilliant and valiant effort in the most positive direction, I have much to add here (and hack..) , will do asap.

Coincidentally, the diagram seems to contain the artwork similar to that of my high school friend who long time ago invented the Giant Amoeboid Being from the Planet of Fear X. It is this Thing whose very mention is sufficient to inflate yourself and exaggerate, wave hands, get nuts and make faces, primarily with your mouth and teeth. He invented many Things for inflating yourself or becoming Mega Stupid.
Giant Amoeboid Being is something like a Normal thing from Nature that you might learn some day at the biology or another class. Its a kind of beauty and the ugliness, ok? More ugliness.

I was thrown into a swift cross-discipline fine art project at a university as a workshop leader and my task was to create a dynamic graphic score architecture to function in a cinema, creating an environment that allows growth from the inside, and within the context of a historical space in a small seaside town. I think something like this would really help and I admire the clarity in your diagrams. I hope I can introduce these ideas to the students, I can see this being a way to access and process lots of potentialities.

* transition and evolve current socio-economic models
very interested in this one, what current models are the starting points? or is this a more general statement?
* lead to the emergence of collaborative marketplaces
the models will help achieve this goal but platforms based on non-hierarchical emergent structure will be needed, also very interesting
* co-create value through the leveraging of affinities around shared narratives
a little fluffy, but sure
monetize that value through ethical re-sale and incentivization of personal data
disagree with this being in this document, not because I am fundamentally against this mode of value transfer (though I am not a fan, it has its place, emphasizing the ethical part, and ensuring the value is not extracted but precipitated through the value chain), but because I fundamentally believe that *net (my conception) cannot have a profit motive per say, but is rather value vector positive by definition (things that destroy value will not be permitted, or will be severely discouraged)
* volumize and visualize that data via immersive technologies
this seems out of place, is this a specialty or interest of one of the early founders? I would expect immersive technologies to be an interesting area of development, not a constraint. that said let's see the toys, I'm still waiting for someone to do it well.
* enhance emergent properties and multiplicity
I like this very much, would go beyond 'enhance..properties' to basing the fundamental design of the information space on the concepts of emergence (and the simple rules that interact to produce emergent behavior) and multiplicity being the mode of expression of intersubjective entanglement space - really this is a commitment not to destroy value, see comment above about value positive.
* contribute and reciprocate with the
I think we need to save the open source community from copyleft, one value equation at a time, but working with them is a good start.
* ...create a ground of engagement for entities to interact and nourish one another:
create a ground of engagement.. like it a lot, very pregnant
the coordinating layer of both the web of our strategic partnerships and the web itself
'coordinating layer' is interesting, the whole sentence seems a bit disjoint.
