a Grand Synthesis of Man and Machine

About: presence

The following paragraph may have been written in 2005 as the start of a piece of fiction →

i'm here at georgiatech to start my attempt at creating a Grand Synthesis of All The Big Ideas, Ever, with a Grand Synthesis of Man and Machine; but don't think 'minority report', think 'rama revealed'. i've been inspired to perform this feat, amongst other things, by a stint at hewlett-packard labs india, my marginally loopy manager there, the Gaia theory, some ants in a fire pit, and sigmund freud's 'last pedestal'The most important scientific revolutions all include, as their only common feature, the dethronement of human arrogance from one pedestal after another of previous convictions about our centrality in the cosmos. -- Stephen Jay Gould, Dinosaur in a Haystack; Logic and Reason, of course, assert their right to be present at the proceedings, and i have graciously consented.

Hi Seth,

Thanks for the comments on my blog. Looked at fastblogit?a very interesting concept. Do you have a summary of what it's "about" and where you intend to take it? I got quite a good idea from this page and others, and I can see fastblogit overlaps a lot with my distributed conversations concept, but would like to have a clearer overview.

Cheers,

Luke

I'll write something about this when i get a .  For now i made a place for this at our domain.  It will be under the button titled "about" in the button bar at the top of each screen.

Incidentally it is really easy for you to identify yourself here, just go to enter, leave, or change group and make yourself a group on the right hand box.  But in the meantime, i have tagged all items that refer to you in any way, they are all in weaverluke.

i regurgitated this because i serendipitously ran into it and now want to reconnect with weaverluke … he was doing some interesting thing and we had a productive interaction even here at group NO-LABEL … this is part of my reach out that is poised to happen … maybe connections or somthing       like that.
