Greetings, In a recent moment of clarity an epiphany dawned upon me, one that I wish to share with you. Perhaps epiphany is the wrong term … a better word would be realization, the culmination of several already known smaller epiphanies coming together to a greater understanding, to a greater acceptance of truth as it is rather than I...

Angelo never felt quite right … He was a strong young man, bright, passionate, yet growing up he always felt out of place amongst his piers. He felt a passing tourist in this world rather one of its residents. He wasn’t distraught about this fact, a little perplexed perhaps, slightly uncomfortable, but not distraught. In fact he found it...

Makassar 7 was not known to answer questions readily, however in this particular case, the flagship entity could not resist, this then is the only transcript available, since Makassar 7 destroyed all recorded lightstamps of the event of what in later generations came to be known as “the response of Makassar 7” or simply “ The big...

Just wondering why the gallery is never updated any more and if it ever will be again? I love the gallery here and often direct people to it, I'd like to see it keep growing.

I've been exploring the meaning of p2p with @notthisbody, and along the way trying to distill the concept down to a simple definition. The logic of p2p has long transcended file sharing and is beginning to transform everything from politics to our economy. 'peer-to-peer' only scratches the surface of what we mean by p2p.

There's been a lot of talk recently about the changes in Net Neutrality laws, and the possibility that they may change drastically in the coming years, thus disallowing for free communications between peers. It's worrisome that Google, monolithic as it is, keeps popping up in these conversations as being not-quite-for neutrality... In the...

Is quantum theory weird enough for the real world? Our most successful theory of nature is bewilderingly remote from reality. But fixing that may require a weirder theory still PHYSICS, its practitioners will proudly tell you, is the most fundamental of sciences. Its theories and laws distil the workings of the real world - of particles...
