In one of those futures, @owocki is at an ultimate party explaining how in crypto every subculture has its own token when he stops abruptly and says "hold my beer", whips out a laptop and proceeds to summon DADA, decentralized autonomous disc association.
6 hours later the party is still raging ... but there is already quorom in support of a proposal on the DADA to push sunday's games back by two hours to accomdate everyone's hangovers
6 days later the DADA has members from every contintent (you know there is are ultimate player scientists in antarctica), and funding has been secure to support @UltimatePeace for over a decade.
6 months later the a proposal is passed to ensure DADA world championships are scheduled to perpetually coincide with devcon.
6 years later we're literally still arguing about whether footblocks should be allowed in beach ultimate and it doesn't look like the question will ever be settled so we pass a proposal that delegates the decision to each individual beach ultimate tournament director.

I am considering offering a digital graduate seminar on discrete dynamic games: mixing literature from robotics, economics, and computational social science. Material will cover mathematical theory, simulation and applications via data science methods.

Can i charge(?) to cover:
@SumanovVasily @ManuAlzuru and all.

more info will come out in the next week or so. I am building out a plan which i'll publish. I am aiming for a 2 hour seminar once a week with 2 TAs each offering an hour of office hours a week and one admin to provide support.
i am expecting to run this fo approximately 3 months modeled off my convex optimization course structure at Penn:

Part 1: Mathematical Foundations
Par 2: Numerical Methods (simulations)
Part 3: Applications (focused on projects)

class size will be minimum 6, maximum 20.

So you think you understand socio-technical systems from your knowledge of the technology? The tech is just the enabler; humans have agency.

networks of networks of Humans relationships are complex:
Couples a challenge
Families are more so
Interactions among Tribes...
I've modeled out, created and verified
-physical properties of adaptive aerospace materials (03-04)
-evolutionary game theory (04)
-word of mouth process and enterprise software decisions(05-10)
-tech and env impact (06-07)
-bird flocking for multi-robot control (05-08)
- computation and communication trade-offs in sensor networks (08-12)
- relationship local vs global optimal for value flow in nets (10-14)
- disease propagation in human contact networks (12-15)
- geographic cost/value asymmetries in advertising (14-17)
as a rough outline
