Fractals, Chaos, and Control Systems on Rails


Launching ThinkoSphere Alpha, an accelerator of democracy

Posted by Harry Seldon on January 24, 2009

I am pleased to announce that the alpha version of ThinkoSphere.com is hereby publicly launched! I have finally integrated the new design. I hope you like it.

What is ThinkoSphere?
ThinkoSphere is a brand new experiment that publicly aims at implementing more Control Systems Philosophy into the democracy. That means I want to give each of you more power in:

  • Knowing the opinion of others
  • Analyzing thoroughly this data
  • Reacting accordingly to the results of a poll or vote

The Control Systems philosophy is pretty straightforward: you sense, you think, you act. This process is scale independent: it is the same that drives your personnality. It is also the same process that drives the society. So let us make it more transparent.

What comes next?
Plenty of things: widgets, API, internationalization (i18n), localization (l10n)… But for now, it is time to test in the real word what has already been done.

Moreover, if there are features you want to see added, leave a suggestion here or create a poll.
