Let me be 100% clear: technology is at the point where #Virtualisation/#Gamification and access to tech/aug real/3D imaging/printing/geospatial...

All those data points is enabling soooo much change, and law is woefully unprepared. It's been kept stagnant to favour abusers.

#Singularity\inbound\ETA\imminent

I highly recommend checking out Dr. Ray Kurzweils works! I sadly had to work the night shift, (guarding that CF-18 I'd shared the pic of previously) and was too bagged to see him in person at @UNBFredericton/@UNB at a speaking event.

Here's a thread on a topic TPTB DON'T want folks paying attention to - #IoB wearables with #Graphene tied to impact markets and data harvest towards the #Singularity, linking Sweden, Spain, and Stanford University. I did a podcast on it a few months back.
A goal of the mad scientists working on #IoBNT (see Ian Akyildiz at Georgia Tech, a University Affiliate Research Center for the DoD) that humans merge with a ubiquitous computing environment - bio-data and thoughts transmit in a suffused way using nano. futurecomresearch.eu/previous/2017/…
Right now they don't have the technology for all of those "dots" of sensor data to float out in an uncontrolled manner. They need to aggregate the data and send it out to interact with 5/6G+ "smart" environments in the spatial web. Hence the need for #graphene #wearables.

#Singularity people - I want to build images in sandbox mode (-s), but the files contained are older than 30 days (cluster's 30 day deletion!).
I can run `touch` afterwards but files may still get deleted as touch takes a while
Is there a way for build to use today's timestamps?
perhaps that's what -u is for? it's a bit unclear. i'll run it with -u --fix-perms and see what happens
or am I overthinking this and it's enough to make an overlay filesystem? Then I have a single image file that has today's timestamp

Just had a wild idea, so bear with me:
Imagine an #opensource #cryptocrowdfunding model for software products, the kind you buy from @awscloud @Azure @GCPcloud and also the smaller players like @digitalocean and @Rackspace m, where there are no hardware licenses. 1/
You don’t even have to run the software or have access to the hardware running it in this model. Instead of #softwarelicensing, #developers set #crypto #staking thresholds which act as #digitalaccesscontroltokens; #stake x of whichever #Crypto, or y of another, with a discount 2/
when using the project’s #sidechain. So you get staking setup, and essentially get #APIkeys which allow you to join the network in r/w mode. Or you could say to heck with all that, I just want to pay someone. You can pay the network directly to do the work the software does. 3/

The largest system in the physical realm is our universe. It provides the best examples of organizing principles.

#OrganizingPrinciples
1. Everyone is in

Everything in the physical realm came from a common source / point of singularity—Big Bang—a grain of sand medium.com/predict/3-argu…

#singularity
Everything, including us, is made of ‘star stuff’ universetoday.com/117494/what-do… and everything is part of the same holistic system.

Today's Applied Complexity Symposium begins with a panel on Computation and Complex Economies, feat. Rob Axtell, Joshua Epstein, @C4COMPUTATION, Blake LeBaron, John Miller, & @MelMitchell1

(Follow this thread for live coverage all day...)

#complexsystems #economics
4 Principles of Collective #Computation:

1 Ground truth (objective reality)
2 Effective ground truth (what we agree on, whether or not it is accurate)
3 #Information can be collectively encoded in #networks
4 Outputs are a product of collective dynamics

@C4COMPUTATION right now
"I think #economics really needs to adopt a generative framework with agent-based models of cognitively plausible software people...[and] we don't choose to fear."

We got him.

Feels good.

Going to the lake to celebrate this small victory.

Good job @99freemind
@RonanFarrow and everyone who stuck with this story.

This proves people from all sides can work together in the face of true evil.

Well done.

Hats off to @xeni for being relentless.

We should all agree to hold anyone connected accountable.

Regardless whether Left, Right, Christian, Jewish, Transhumanist, Satanist, Atheist, Famous, Royal or Otherwise.

Let's burn the mother fkr down. 🔥

"You don't see radio changing gradually and suddenly become radar. #Darwin's theory doesn't work for #technology, and we have to make a new observation."

Unlike the two-parent #inheritance typical to (but not ubiquitous among) #complex organisms, #technology inherits features from n parents - a "vast ancestral #network" more like horizontal gene transfer networks in #bacteria.
