Blogging place

I wanted to invite you to check out this new community of bloggers that participate in different projects with posts and comments. Thought some of you might like it. This place is called SpaceCollective, you can check my profile here. If you are interested in participating you can ask for an invitation. Here are some of the projects included:

  • The total library: Text that redefines - or - How to redefine the text. Everything related to words, their different interpretations, origins and development.
  • Polytopia: The human species is rapidly and indisputably moving towards the technological singularity. As hyperconnectivity increases, our minds are becoming progressively more coupled and cybernetically joined. Polytopia is a space where the newly born Cyberculture of openness and collaboration can be extended by those in pursuit of a combined interactive intelligence. A mind habitat for our multidimensional co-enhancing minds, for we are infonauts in search of a home.
  • What happened to nature: The majestic nature that once inspired poets, painters and philosophers with a sense of awe and ecstasy no longer exists. Putting humanity firmly at the top of the food chain we have separated ourselves from the natural environment by adapting it for our own short term needs. Now that we have left our synthetic imprint on every inch of he planet, while surrendering our survival instinct to science and technology, the question becomes, where do we turn for our sense of awe and ecstasy in an increasingly man-made world?
  • Start your own revolution: All major institutions in the world today are grappling to come to terms with the internet. The entertainment industry is struggling to figure out how to respond to downloading and YouTube; educational institutions are forced to reconsider their role in the age of the search engine and Wikipedia; and new political models are suggested by grassroots organizations like Thanks to the internet, the tools for revolutionary change are at our fingertips, but as of yet this revolution has no name, no leaders and no formal agenda. We have barely tapped into its potential to become the advanced operating system that will allow us to catch up with the future.
