What do you think is going to happen? What do you hope will happen? And what can we do to help determine what will happen? In TCGC I offered three possible scenarios, which I labeled the Design Scenario, the Metaphoric Scenario, and the Apocalyptic Scenario. While you’re constructing your own scenario, which I hope you will share with us at the end of this blog, here’s where I would like to point this website:To me, a Whole Earth Design Project is the way to go, and I am presently exploring the feasibility of such a project with ESRI, the leading Geographic Information System (GIS) software company. I foresee this as a project in which anyone and everyone can get involved by providing Wikipedia-like input or by simply observing and promoting the progressively clarifying planetary image of a virtual cooperative society. Such a project will fulfill the Internet’s dual functions of education and organization.
