A chapter or two away from finishing the online novel Social Tech High at http://SocialTechNovel.SocialTechnology.ca/ and I have already started a new one, the sequel. The first chapter has not been posted yet, but it will be done the cheap way, as a redirected domain, http://www.ConnectedCollege.org/ which redirects to a subdomain on this site. That will let me use the URL in the novel, just as I acquired an acquired an actual website, http://www.SocialTechHigh.org/ so that it could be mentioned in the novel. The first of these novels has Sally Aston agreeing to a post-secondary extension of Social Tech High only if it named something completely different, is located in a different part of the city, and does not in any way advertise that it is such an extension — she wants her students to have no excuse not to go to a real university. So, she would not tolerate the existence of a Social Tech University. Ah, but don’t count that out. Maybe a sequel to this sequel will be just such a thing. To be on the safe side, I have registered http://www.SocialTechUniversity.org/ which at the moment redirects to the same subdomain as the other. Just to be sure, I registered the dot-com equivalents, too. I don’t want someone else to have them. — 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.
