I said, "Surely the gods are smiling--" before getting interrupted. I think I scared my benefactor away, because within an two hours I developed a sneeze and Claudia told me that she would be gone until Saturday.
But by then it was too late! I had already come up with a nice collection of new projects to work on! Here are the highlights:
- Cooperative Coordination Page: Facilitate people combining their resources for common purchases, like magazine subscriptions and fresh food. More importantly, all levels of cost (from produce to multiple consumers) would be transparent and changeable.
- Backwards History of Philosophy: Develop a course on philosophy, starting from present day and working back to the pre-Socratics, presenting each philosophy as a holistic paradigm, while allowing the learner to understand their own paradigms by seeing their ancestry.
- Other new projects: "Fair Use" Learning Materials Page; Design for collective data collection site, to make a historical trends graph; a PIC-based Neural Network ALife pendant; Your Money or Your Life FI program; Following siderea's RBC re-education project.
