The culture must be built.
Today I launched my newsletter on LinkedIn. You can sign up here.
It's called 'The culture must be built', a reference to Iain M. Banks. The Culture (capital C) is, according to Wikipedia, a utopian, post-scarcity space society of humanoid aliens, and advanced superintelligent artificial intelligences living in artificial habitats spread across the Milky Way galaxy. The culture (small c) is something already around us today, an informal but recognizably related set of people that align around values that, to my mind, are:
· Individual Freedom and Happiness
· Growth and Education
· Equality, Diversity, and Tolerance
· Technological Advancement
The newsletter is a 'novelty aggregator'. Each week I’ll select a handful of things that seem to be to be ways in which technology is advancing our potential to survive, thrive and conjoin. They won’t necessarily be the biggest stories of the week; I’m presuming you saw those already. I may include a few things about my personal projects, when newsworthy. I hope you enjoy reading it.
