I have checked in from time to time to see how the Knowledge dock, James Burkes “Connections” Deep Learning application, (Its a sort of deep Learning AI for consciousness not Corporations) is progressing.The Conciousness over Corporations preference? That is what I think the problem is with it, from a funding point of view, it honours consciousness and not Corporations.

James Burkes Seminal connections series for the BBC are still superb viewing today. This vision of the future bears serious consideration this man is very under-represented in Main Stream Media these days, I suspect because his intellectual honesty is too dangerous for our present dumbed down diet of MSM dross.
James Burke on the Future at 2.48 He posits that states and Governments will no longer exist in 100 years time they will no longer be needed as their predication on Scarcity and conflict will simply no longer be valid and demonstrably so.

I Wrote this entry into a Brainstorming session earlier, we are seeking Use Cases for Web 3 distributed computing ventures.
James Burkes Connections is one of the classic UK science programmes.
Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning are where the Big Web Web 1 and Web 2 Google monopolies are headed they are Artificial intelligences’ that seek to shepherd and guide human consciousness into submission. Burke and Wolfram are I think
more libertarian in their philosophy than the big web Offerings my own view is the WEB 3 can harness human consciousness and free will leading to a huge paradigm shift in innovation and invention breaking the artificial boundaries which State Monopoly Financialisd/Capitalism imposes to maintain an artificial scarcity model around debt-based money.
James Burke is quite Old now but has been very much sidelined and memory holed along with thinkers like Quigglan, Freire, and GK Galbraith, Tesla and so on.
the brain is how I see web 3 setting up informal and temporary joint ventures and cooperatives that can merge and fork into new organisations some of which will grow and some of which will just dissolve but all of which will remain in the Blockchain recognising proof of Brain contributions and building the Social Capital of all people so that all contributions are recognised and remunerated.
I have just been clicking around the mind map I made back in 2015 the tool is online on centralised servers but would live on the Distributed web very nicely and the mapping it performs could all be nested as separate side chins to any centralised project token and in term a FIAT money Fund or Top 20 Crypto balanced equity investment fund.
“Joined Up Thinking” this is usually meant as considering all sides of a question, on web 3 it literally means joined up thinking of groups.
from my Blog in 2011
is a 10-episode documentary
television series and 1978 book (Connections
, based on the series) created, written, and presented by science historian James Burke
. The series was produced and directed by Mick Jackson
of the BBC
Science and Features Department and first aired in 1978 (UK) and 1979 (USA). It took an interdisciplinary
approach to the history of science
, and demonstrated how various discoveries, scientific achievements, and historical world events were built from one another successively in an interconnected way to bring about particular aspects of modern technology. The series was noted for Burke’s crisp and enthusiastic presentation (and dry humour
), historical re-enactments
, and intricate working models
The popular success of the series led to the production of The Day the Universe Changed
(1985), a similar program but showing a more linear history of several important scientific developments. Years later, the success in syndication led to two sequels, Connections2
(1994) and Connections3
(1997), both for TLC
. In 2004, KCSM-TV
produced a program called Re-Connections
, consisting of an interview of Burke and highlights of the original series, for the 25th anniversary of the first broadcast in the USA on PBS
