An elite list I read has turned its attention to the problems (non-problems?) associated with overpopulation. When speaking to others so much smarter and better informed I try to be boastful and humble at the same time.

I am interested in this problem. I believe we have available mechanisms that are unknown or unwanted by the political structures in place. The biggest contribution I can make is to show that these mechanisms work in situations where they might be wanted.
My project of the moment is to design mechanisms whereby one can allow versions of documents to proliferate and still feel some force towards surfacing the better.
Life is tenacious. It will go on. Culture is more fragile and may not survive if we do not avail ourselves to the many opportunities that are presently missed. Whoosh. There went another opportunity. I've got to get back to work.
