Pop Apocalypse: The Next Logical Step
Just after I put the Mnikr final paper on the Internet, a man named Lee Konstantinou emailed me. He liked the Mnikr work I’d done, he said, and he’d written a book about the next logical step: if Identities have shareholders, then surely Identities should have boards of directors composed of shareholders, right? And if they have those, then shouldn’t the board be able to take steps to protect their investments?
Summer Full of Awesome
Wow, the last time I wrote a serious blog post, it was May! I’ve been needing to write one for a while, just to note all the fun things I’ve been doing. Here, then, is the summary:
UWC-USA: Blue Moon Cafe, Reunion 2009
Hello, friendly blogoverse! I haven’t written in far too long, and unfortunately, I’m too busy right now to do the post I’d planned to put up today. However, I got back just a few days ago from the UWCAW Reunion in Montezuma, NM, and managed to take a few videos of the Blue Moon Cafe (a sort of UWC variety show) we held there; I promised everyone I’d upload them, so here they are! (You can, of course, click through to YouTube to favorite them and share them with people; just click on the video.)
At very long last, my thesis is done. The final title is “Mnikr: Reputation Construction Through Human Trading of Distributed Social Identities.” I’ve just now turned in my last thing at Hopkins (my final in my security engineering class), and so it’s over; after five years, I’m done with work at Hopkins. If you’ll excuse me, I’ll be playing video games, just like I haven’t been for years. :-)
