My company has developed a blockchain system for managing innovation, 
and we use a modified Merkle tree to generate what we call a "directed 
idea graph", with the root being the original genesis record of an idea. 
Thus, ideas are also trees. The distinction is that an idea graph can 
also be cyclic, vs acyclic, when you merge ideas back together. (patent 
pending btw) We're going to build a pilot of it in the life science 
space, and will be publishing a paper about this in the near future.

The concept of creating a Merkle "veracity tree" is really big, bigger 
than reusing OpenGraph, and allows a reputation server to see how a 
story "morphs" over time, how veracity scores change from branch to branch.


PS to Chris, those slides are brilliant. You are, like me, a 
visionoholic... mad prophets drunk on just a sip of precognition.
