Thinking about a book design as hexagon published as 6 mini-stories featuring different heroes/heroines who discover their spells in their own way: music, seeds, etc. (Potentially thinking to feature a real project/creator as character.) Together these mini-stories fit into a giant hexagon like a puzzle. And each comic is illustrated within boxes of hexagons not the usual squares.

Each story is illustrated by a different illustrator (2/6 confirmed). I'm also considering one more mini-story as rectangular to showcase "old story" all humans live in. Then, the six hexagon books mark the transition from the old to the new, the personal transformation moment to living systems philosophy.

The challenge is about Prototype: How to make a paper notebook as a hexagon now and divide a page into hexagons nicely? And then, how to showcase a hexagon with hexagons inside on WordPress (website made with Elementor)? Reading online advices here...

Another challenge: How much I can produce as actual book with different collaborators for March?

"How might we act as "community-forming beings"? is essential question.

I think providing state of the art technology representative of a traditional digital transformation is the unique part of this idea.

Heh, the "projects" side of 0oo is actually aiming to be like one, though, getting bags of money is currently still an issue. However, given that we start sharing publicly about work progresses, and do some interesting projects in a public way, may be a reason for curious investors to flock. So, there is a pattern that's common among startups -- "sprints" and "iterations" rather than "solving issue tickets" (that's more common in established businesses). The sprints and iterations thingie needs periodic challenges, and results in between, so the potential investors can feel the rhythm (we can compute its characteristics for display as well).

On the other hand, the ideas side should probably be more like a patent office. Thinking to myself -- why not to partner with various patent offices globally, and discuss, how we could help the open innovators gain rights in future revenues, could easily discuss technical integrations.

However, in general, the idea of "Business Incubator" isn't new, so you should give it at least a more unique summary. ;)

Don't read random books that people give you, read books that build up a theme.

Right, that makes sense, it's usually done through certain timed online activities, that would be easy by combining Zoom + Google calendar. However, I'd think it might be not fun if the number of people is too small. E.g., if just 3 people show up :) It would be more fun if there were say 8 people or so to start with, so, I'd think, well, plan it for the future. Good direction though.

In addition, I imagine there are different kinds of meetings: - (for goals & ideas) sorting and voting on them, helping discover new links (related works), and free talking - (for projects) there are people who might want to catch up periodically about their project progress, almost like startups, and consult each others.

One of the shortcomings of the Airtable-based calendars is that they do not show the details of the event, only name, when added to calendars, so I don't know how many people actually subscribed to them.

Alternative to Darwinism is L.Margulis work on Symbiosis and Cooperation as a driving force of evolution.

What if textbooks and culture that promote Darwinism as idea are wrong and is simply promoted by some thought collectives?

For curiosity, I recommend watching a movie on L.Margulis ideas which may spark alternative ideas :)

Idea for feature request:

  • Invite friends for 1 hour real-time Infinity Challenge during which everyone posts interesting Questions/Ideas and comments to each other's posts on 0oo.li.

Having a time limit focuses everyone to think creatively and creates a bond between strangers fast.

I used to moderate live twitter chats for hundreds of strangers. Worked great!

You're right Ruta, there's value in every failed business venture.

"Freedom to Iterate" would inlude ups and downs. "Startups" try to adopt this mentality while iterating fast in the market already.

What would be interesting if "failed startups" would somehow share their stategies and project management for reuse by other startups, because not everything that they worked on was an error and even if it was it can spark ideas.

A post mortem on every failed business ever where people discover what caused them to fail.

We should have 0 failed business plans and 0 job losses (except for exceptional causes).

Society should be antifragile.

One can think of an institution to care about arbitrary little thing, for example, "Market Access" or "Subsidy". However, the very way of optimization that the Western world seem to have chosen, relies on evolving and screening for the winners, not nurturing and helping the losers to grow up. I think, it again comes from the Darwinian Optimization mentality, and to create that new mentality, we've got to think of the losers as the outliers, -- seeds with unusual potential -- because, the reasons why they are losers, perhaps, is because they are in the wrong soil, not because they are inherently unfit. With that thinking, something like an institution for "Nurture of Outliers" focused on mining untapped talent and perspectives may be invented.

Like, you come to a school, and tell what you want to do, then we vote on what to do, then we group by interest, then we work on it?
