The Message is the Medium: Multiprocess Structuring of an Interactive Paint Program – Beach et. all

Daniel, regarding our discussion about the multi-process structuring of the Indy Ledger Node and how Anthropomorphic Design might be able to help, checkout the attached conference paper that describes a Paint application created by Eugene Fiume, a cohort of mine while we were in grad school together at the University of Waterloo. [Eugene is now Dean of Applied Sciences at Simon Fraser University.]

It’s an easy read …focus on page 279 and onwards: the concepts of Administrator, Overseer, Worker, Secretary, and Listener processes.

NOTE: The paper starts on page 277 of the proceedings. The paper is a total of 11 pages.

Trusted Digital Web / Hyperonomy Business Blockchain / NEO-NATION: Annual Report 2019


2. Business and Service Choreography Discussion – Twitter


#Composition speaks to the #concentration or #centralization of value, assets, and processes. #Choreography is about the interplay that takes place #naturally between #decentralized value, assets, and processes. #TrustedDigitalWeb #iDIDit



#Service #Choreography: the idea underlying the notion of service choreography can be summarized as follows:

“Dancers dance following a global scenario without a single point of control”

10 Real-Life Examples of #CliqueSpeak

These real-life examples are provided as educational training resources with the intent that we can have less #CliqueSpeak across CCG in the future.

  1. “…it’s not like we’re considering any of those topics for the first time.”
  2. “We may want to limit discussion if people that are new to the work, such as yourself, insist on rehashing things that we’ve already discussed.”
  3. “I know it will take time for you to trust that we’re trying to do the right thing for the community, Web, and Internet in general.”
  4. “Unfortunately, trust of that level takes months to years to develop and regular interaction and demonstrating over time that we have the best interests of the community at heart is all we can do to make you believe that we’re trying to do the right thing here.”
  5. “There are things that have strong consensus, such as dereferencing a DID gives you a DID Document.”
  6. “It’s incredibly difficult to navigate all of that if you haven’t been a part of the community since it’s beginning…”
  7. “There are discussions that keep coming up repeatedly that many in the community have explored multiple times and so rehashing those discussions is not useful if there is consensus on the topic.”
  8. “We’ve been having these topical discussions for a few years now and we’re probably through most of them.”
  9. “We need to be careful to not retread territory that we’ve already covered.”
  10. “You are also potentially re-opening discussions that we have consensus on, so we need to be careful not to do that because if we do that, lots of decisions that were finalized end up being reopened and we’ll waste a tremendous amount of time coming back to the same conclusion we came to many months/years ago.”

Social Evolution and Technology Adoption

A #wanderer is someone who leaves their tribe to share their knowledge and wisdom with others; to later form a party of explorers to explore and conquer a common set of goals; and, even further on, create a clan, a band, a tribe, and a tribal society, a group of people who live and work together – a group of tribes organized around kinships.
