From Metagovernment - Government of, by, and for all the people
Jump to: navigation, search


Welcome, Patrick. The Personal Sovereignty Foundation sounds very much like a kindred spirit. If you have not yet done so, please consider joining the startup list server and introducing yourself there. Our conversations tend to focus there, with the results of them ending up here on the wiki.

Also, please consider adding PSF to the list of active projects in the Metagovernment adhocracy. If you have not yet started coding, you may wish to check out some of them in detail. Candiwi, for example, is being built along very much the same lines as what you are describing. It is being built essentially as a DVCS. — Ed Pastore 12:51, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the invitation, Ed.

The work I am doing is not actually computer software, but is instead a legally-binding document.

So, while the General Public Law is 'code', it's 'execution' is carried out by property laws and legal systems we already find ourselves within instead of by computer circuitry...

Because of the subjects being discussed, I would still like to work here, and hope my contributions can help us move toward the goal of "Government of, by and for all the people". -- Patrick Anderson

Thanks for the reply, Patrick. What you are describing is very much like much of what has been discussed on the list server. I would still encourage you to join it, even if only to lurk. You will find many very creative people there willing to give input into your ideas (and/or coming up with nuances you may not have thought of yet). Also, the more I read about what you're describing, the more I think you will find Candiwi to be a very helpful mechanism for working in conjunction with your project. It is very-much an opt-in, ground-up system. Candiwi is undergoing significant development now, and I believe the developers will be making a progress report on the list server fairly soon. — Ed Pastore 18:55, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
