The latest chapter, Chapter Nine, of my online, daily installment novel on http://SocialTechNovel.SocialTechnology.ca/ contains some interesting (I hope) examples of the use of a user interface to the school’s social technology software. Also discussed is what has been called an optimized class structure, though I would still prefer to avoid the term optimized, with its big-brother connotations. I will try to make clear in a coming installment that student and teacher input makes it really social technology, the development of tools and utilities, not social engineering, as practiced, for example, by the Nazis. — dpw
I continue to use the clickable image below, though it dates from a time when I naively ignored the dangers of Social Technology.
Like all truly advanced technology, these solutions to social problems will involve a lot of math, but must not require users to have special knowledge or skills. Programmers are invited to help with the development of open source libraries for applied social mathematics.
Non-technical accounts of all these topics as well as accessible accounts of the underlying math are on the front pages of a network of associated websites.
