I've seen a bunch of posts bubble up over the past few days that are really sparking my curiousity about what is really going on with Twitter, so I need to do a little brain dump. Bear with me. Insight #1 An article by Rosabeth Moss Kanter was just published today on the Harvard Business Review website, titled On Twitter and in the...

The first decade of the 21st century is about to end in just a few weeks. Among many things, I find most impacting the explosion of knowledge in the field of brain sciences and human behavior in this decade. Though the great riddles of consciousness and the emergence of minds from brains are still open and far from any solution, many connections...

On and on does the lattice grow, information flows, and our minds converge, into a single, fiercely independent, decidedly autonomous, highly intelligent, and self-propelling emergent metaverse, the infoverse. The infoverse is where we will live. And we need a home. A mutually supportive habitat of sorts; A mind habitat, an infotat for our...

I really enjoy my carnal existence; eating, drinking & exercising. But strangely I quite appreciate the idea of living forever - despite all of the negative connotations associated with it - what if this "Polytopia" was to be a hyperspace - kinda like second life, but controlled in the first person by our electrical selves,...

I'm sure many of you know about the great mathematician, Paul Erdos, and may have heard this story about him (from Wikipedia): His colleague Alfréd Rényi said, "a mathematician is a machine for turning coffee into theorems", and Erdős drank copious quantities. (This quotation is often attributed incorrectly to Erdős himself.)[6] ...

I was driving through the Tenderloin the other night - one of the most socio-economically depressed areas of San Francisco. Across a long wall someone tagged "Occupy Wall Street" in big letters with a clean font and preceded by the Twitter "#" hashtag notation. It was a big, funky chorus bridging the grimy street with a...

This weekend I experienced a snowcrash; a moment where the seemingly disparate pieces of information floating in my head came together. A synapse fired, a new connection was made, and I was brought to a new level of consciousness, a new way of seeing the world. In reading this over, it almost sounds obvious, but it took me a while to get here. I...

I've been thinking a lot about this polytopia without offering any of the thoughts, so here, for whatever they're worth, are some of them.
