i have been having my eyes on VSM, but didnt delve very deep. would be happy to check out anything you produce and provide feedback!

Sounds like meritocratic-libertarian abundance: "Everybody can make it, its all there for the taking."
I was thinking about win-win abundance: "The more you give, the more there is for everybody."

We can use the principles and patterns underlying stable, healthy, and sustainable
living systems as a model for economic-system design.

The descriptions of the ideologies with their threats and gifts made sense to me.
Then I started to think about the axes (I had studied slideshare.net/vgururao/death- a while ago).
I do not understand why progressivism ended up where it did. I went back to look at the slide deck and now i understand it even less, as it is clear there that it is the "shitty quadrant".
For example I would think that one underlying principle behind Sharing is Abundance, the opposite of Scarcity.

I will also be there :) ill try to find you!

"Because our enemy is not piracy, our enemy is not someone that is going to steal our idea. Our enemy is Obscurity. That we are not known and not trusted. But if we are trusted for the right reasons, you have more leverage than ever before." - Seth Godin

"How can I get more confidence? [...] I think its the wrong question. Because as soon as you ask that question, you are viewing the world as a threat. You are viewing yourself as inadequate.
[...] The right question is: How can I be more generous?
[Then] we get out of our own head, and we have the chance to live in a connection economy, that's based on abundance. Abundance of information, abundance of trust.
As opposed to an industrial economy that's based on scarcity. " - Seth Godin

Debugging insight of the day:

Focus on solving the problem, not the mystery.

There is a trade-off between deep understanding and fast problem solving.

When deadline looms, don't nerd-snipe yourself and keep a flexible mind, focused on the problem.

Are Silicon Valley's valuations a symptom of unevenly distributed hyperinflation?

Calling all armchair & real economists:

What are your thoughts on quantitative easing and the state of the US Dollar?

So turns out I can boost my own post, but when I delete the boost the original post gets deleted -.-

Have you listened to the hammock driven development talk?

"The Design is the Implementation"

talks about a powerful idea that i have been intuiting aswell.
