John Robb meets Jane McGonigal Eye to Eye.

I found this interesting article where my hero John Robb talks

about my hero Jane McGonigal.


Here's a video of Jane McGonigal at the 2010 TED (the conference for tech, entertainment, and Wall Street elites to rub elbows) conference.

In it she talks about the power of online games.…

The DarkNet Initiative

In view of the ACT9 mission objective, that asks Agents to create a Dark Site,

a site with information useful in a crisis, I've whipped the following initiative:

The Darknet

Instead of creating hundreds of isolated sites, we should create a network

of dark sites, a place where all these sites can be found integrated over

a social network and… Continue

What's Going On With the Leader Cloud Points???

I'm worried about the fact that the votes from peer agents stopped

registering in the Agents' profile score and also in the leader cloud,

they don't count as votes, I have waited 24 hours after telling

"report an issue" to bring this up.

Proof of concept: go to some agent's profile and take note of the spark score,

then go to one of the posts and vote one spark,

then go back to the profile and refresh the page

and you will see that the vote is not being… Continue

Archery: Indigenous Food Security Capabilities

This is the bow I made inspired by the Mapuche bows,

I made it out of a single branch, the handle is made using some old

monopole wire and the thread is hemp thread.

I chose archery because it's a traditional wisdom that provides

the capability of food security, and resilience.

Here is my friend Luciana using… Continue

Human Bankers

Buenos Aires, April 15, 2020

A new bank is opening today in my community,

it has it's own currency, it's own barter system,

and it's a non profit corporation.

After people got tired of the psychopath banksters around 2012,

the complementary currencies and community owned banks,

the LETS systems and the computer assisted barter systems got trendy,

remember when we were the "goy" of the financial industry?

The bank is called the People's Bank,… Continue

Cattle on Treadmills

Energy-generating treadmills for humans? William Taylor,

a farmer in Northern Ireland, has decided to put idle cows

on treadmills to produce power for his farm,

according to Popular Science.

The inclined belt causes cows to slide off unless they continue to move forward.

Globalization Through the Looking Glass

John Robb: Resilience as Entrepreneurship

One of the best ways you can prepare for the future is to train yourself to become an entrepreneur -- essentially a person that makes their own economic opportunities. It's going to become a major

differentiator between those that succeed and those that fail in a

harsh global system (this expertise has been deprecated by a system

that prides itself on manufacturing salaried consumption bots). So, as

your salary melts away, your pension evaporates, or your job…

Resilience and the City

I'm gonna touch the issue that is the elephant in the room

of the mission now: Cities are inherently not resilient,

they are in themselves one of the best analogies for centralization, consumption condensation and unbalance.

If you live in a city and the main water supply fails, or the power

goes down, or there is a food shortage, you are done,

there is no adaptation to disruption, there is just no power, no water,

sending the techs to fix…

Economic Resilience

What does your city look like at the end of 10 years of

resilience development? What important new buildings, spaces, and

neighborhoods exist?

I think the resilience capabilities will be decentralized, mostly in homes, not in massive plants, buildings, spaces or neighborhoods,

resilience is inherently associated with…

The Money of the Future

So, I decided to trade in the initial implementation of the Quantum Rings,

and posted my Gift Ad:

Quantum Trade Rings

The creative solution I think will make a huge change in how we

use money in the future is the trade system that Panamericana

presented in two of his posts:

The problem with trade is that if you and I want to trade

The White Hat Traceuses

The synergy of the Penetration Testing and the Parkour extracurricular courses,

gave birth to a hybrid practice in early 2010, it developed into a holistic practice

that integrates the physical with the virtual, a Cyber activity.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
