Context

What if the internet had been invented before democracy?
The technology we are developing today is changing the very fabric of our social behaviours and beliefs. Our most strongly held truths are being questioned, intelligence is now distributed, transparency is resulting in accountability and influence is becoming more and more decentralised. Humankind is increasingly operating by a new set of principles and yet for all this change, we are still running on social technology that was built around 250 years ago. It's time to explore upgrading the underlying operating system that we're living on. This is a project to explore, package and prototype what exactly that might look like.

Stay tuned

As the project evolves we'll be updating followers. We're not sure what this will look like yet but it might include podcasts, or blog posts, or even pdf book excerpts. We'll see what emerges as we go along. This will hopefully culminate in the creation of a wiki or community.

If you'd like to be kept up to date and be the first to receive information about the project, please pop your details below.
