Wherein The Doctor Explains How to Save Us From Ourselves

I’m on FIRE!

(just a draft/content site for cutting and pasting, but a huge step up I think)

Okay, so we’ve got. . .

  • The really old intro thingy from the mind map that Amanda was talking about. . . and the mind map itself, though we’ve come a long way since then
  • The Doctor’s Way (with one really big change, the termites are dinosaurs now, I don’t believe I didn’t think of that before!)
  • Valve to Awesome, a completely different angle, getting where we want to go, starting from Valve (draft)
  • Min/Max Everything, an even more different angle, using optimizers, rules lawyers, and the rest to min/max the world. (even more draft)

Slowly adding reference bits, we’re thinking a sort of uberglossary on top of everything else, that’ll be a bit of work but should be really helpful (so references to voting systems could all go to a well organized and summarized area)

So tell me you still can’t see it now :wink: If you can, I bet it’s just one more little piece, and it’s probably just something that my weird brain takes for granted.

So, many questions answered, and broken up FAR better on the site.

Any more?

Anybody? We need questions to refine this thing so people can digest it!

Okay. I like you. I have no idea how feasible your idea is, but it is interesting. Interesting I can work with. I would like to live in a place where we‘re not mean to each other and actually doing something good. That would be awesome!

So I’m going to think about everything that I can think of that could possibly kill it and get back to you. Then we could figure out how to get those out of the way.

That’s the spirit! Every time we break it things just get better afterwards.

You can go really far if you embrace your mistakes instead of hide from them, right? :wink:

For the record, I had JUST started a FAR better written thread just an hour or so ago, so I probably should start pointing people there, thanks for reminding me!

I’m new here. This was actually my first post on Boing Boing BBS as well. I was attracted to this thread mainly because of the title (love Doctor Who!), but I missed the other thread. Sorry la~ :smiley_cat:

Heh, don’t be! I hadn’t updated the links!

So you helped us! high five

The script there is better too. I love what we did with the termites! Got the complexity across. . but way cooler!
