THE JOHNNY CASH PROJECT

THE JOHNNY CASH PROJECT | Crowds & Collectives | Scoop.it
@Ajar - Yariv Gilad 's insight:

The Johnny Cash Project is a global collective art project, and we would love for you to participate. Through this website, we invite you to share your vision of Johnny Cash, as he lives on in your mind’s eye. Working with a single image as a template, and using a custom drawing tool, you’ll create a unique and personal portrait of Johnny. Your work will then be combined with art from participants around the world, and integrated into a collective whole: a music video for "Ain’t No Grave", rising from a sea of one-of-a-kind portraits.

Collaborative consumption as a basis for a reputation economy is a remarkable insight to where we might all be heading. Who will build the Reputation dashboard to measure the worth of your reputation, intentions, capabilities and values across communities and marketplaces? Intriguing presentation.

This is another great TED Talk. I first heard the phrase 'reputation trail' while watching this video. I've since become intrigued by the concept of collaborative consumption and online trust.

Awesome, Kerwin! You're trending toward 300%+. I'm sure you'll blow away your goal.

  • 90% of those who reach 30% of their goal will meet or exceed their goal.
  • 80% of those who reach 20% will do the same.


You're already there, but don't rest on your laurels :-). 


Keep up the persistent marketing and relentless communications. Kick in your hold-back rewards in a few days.


Get some more exposure with bloggers, too.

Stanford biologist and computer scientist discover the 'anternet' | School of Engineering | Crowds & Collectives | Scoop.it

Swarm intelligence involves the aggregate behavior of actors who may be unintelligent. When swarm intelligence principles are more clearly understood and applied to collective intelligence of smart actors, we may see engineered stigmergic intelligence. -- Howard

 

"Transmission Control Protocol, or TCP, is an algorithm that manages data congestion on the Internet, and as such was integral in allowing the early web to scale up from a few dozen nodes to the billions in use today. Here's how it works: As a source, A, transfers a file to a destination, B, the file is broken into numbered packets. When B receives each packet, it sends an acknowledgment, or an ack, to A, that the packet arrived.

This feedback loop allows TCP to run congestion avoidance: If acks return at a slower rate than the data was sent out, that indicates that there is little bandwidth available, and the source throttles data transmission down accordingly. If acks return quickly, the source boosts its transmission speed. The process determines how much bandwidth is available and throttles data transmission accordingly.

It turns out that harvester ants (Pogonomyrmex barbatus) behave nearly the same way when searching for food. Gordon has found that the rate at which harvester ants – which forage for seeds as individuals – leave the nest to search for food corresponds to food availability."
