This work is in the Public Domain.
I was trying to describe a science for the concept of Societal Computing.
I realised that Social Computing didn’t really cover the high-level stuff like redesigning the processes that make a society function.
Again, a lot of thought and a lot of talk, but not much action. My mistake was thinking that I need to convince the EC to support my work.
Now I realise I can go ahead anyway and just organise a festival. The complex and intriguing stuff can happen there, but it’s much easier to explain a Sandbox Festival than a Societal Computing project. Also no one would visit the latter cos it sounds boring 🙂 (and most likely will be to most haha). Here it is in case you were interestedPras Anand
