Something Miraculous...or?

Post by Bill Wiltrack » Tue Mar 28, 2017 9:34 am

In this age of disruption. This age of the Third Industrial Revolution.


Re-ordering the fundamental institutions of society around network-centric systems of organization instead of institutions.

Creating opportunities for innovation without permission.


For anyone to construct applications where the minimum required market audience size is two.


Creating an exponential explosion of innovation like we have never seen.


Open, boarder-less, decentralized, permission-less systems that allow us to solve problems in society with technology that is open to everyone.

The market decides.

Change with unintended consequences.


A sea of creativity.


That is our possible, uncertain future with technology.


For some, that will be our future.


For most; a society of dictatorships with mass misery where evolution with unintended consequences does not exist


Economic exclusion, human misery, poverty, a loss of freedom are the order of the day.


The jungles with kings of the new environments.

Block-chain technology will change much of the digital economic and financial world and even better it could be seen(I think) as an implementation of Ted Nelson's ideas and might well ensure that plagiarism will be a thing of the past and that the creative might well get paid fairly at last as currently in the Weeb any numbnut can steal one's words and images and pass them of as their own.

Is...there a difference between borrowing & stealing?


(I think) we have moved into an area where the intellectual sphere is collective & not exclusive.


It's part of the disruption...

I think so, in borrowing you return it to the original owner in stealing you don't. This is why we attribute our quotes in Philosophy so we're not accused of stealing.

It never was exclusive, all can partake and participate. What you do is plagiarise for you're own self-aggrandisement.

It's actually due to HTML being unfit for purpose.

We agree to disagree.


...still, you see yourself as owning your words, thoughts and sentences. I see you as just a prescribed bundle of predictable reactions. Where nothing is yours.



We are all the same. We own nothing. We are a conduit for transforming hydrogens. Nothing more.

No, I see myself as ascribing to the author words that they have written that I then use verbatim, I see myself as thinking that the words I write about my thoughts are mine in the sense that they are my current thoughts. Have they been thought by others, probably but since I haven't cut-pasted them as mine I feel on reasonably safe ground.

Gnu shite.

This Third Industrial Revolution may, at a certain time, allow some to change their state of consciousness. I hold-out hope for you that you may experience an ecstasy of consciousness.

Yes. See previous answer.

Yes, why do you think there are two words there?

You would as you are a gnu plagiarist.But with a bit of luck and block-chain technology you'll soon have to pay for this.

I'm already in an ecstasy of consciousness. I hold no hope you'll achieve the same state.
