To all whom have been suffering from missing images, we have identified root cause... It appears some images failed to sync to S3/CDN. We are re-syncing as I write this but it will take sometime. Thank you for your patience.

Going to be an interesting read — SEC report on the 2016 DAO("Slock.IT)ICO.

The world happens in language, which is why writing is a fundamental art. A scientific truth or tech innovation only *means* what it does through the stories we tell ourselves about it.

Our world is a meta-fiction composed of realities that must be interpreted—and if you don't give your reality an interpretation, then someone else will.

How fiction works is thus essential to our meaning-making and world-building in general, and it's important for everyone to become good writers and readers!

I'm looking for researchers/thinkers, with a financial background — who've spent time thinking on innovative financial instruments that look to bring external capital into co-ops, whilst preserving sovereignty and control with members. I have some ideas but need an experienced or keen sensibility for these things to formalise them. Followers — I'd appreciate the TootUp/Boost — what is the term, I forget!?
