Dear RWW,

I seem to be going through some sort of crises. I am shocked that after all
of this time, I forgot what tool to use to do a sparql query. I found cwm
[1] a bit overwhelming and finally decided that I'd try Fuseki [2].

I have been trying to figure out how to implement a distributed economy,
and feel that I have spent more time trying to do research to describe the
vision than actual implementation.

I started out exploring federated social networks such as Diaspora and
Friendica that are distributed, federated, and privacy aware [3]. Then I
expanded my vision into a distributed economy presentation, which included
interconnected elements for: distributed manufacturing, distributed
funding, distributed social networking, distributed file sharing, privacy,
licensure, and authentication, the semantic web, engineering packages, and
grid computing [4].

Soon after I decided to start a blog [5], where I expanded upon what I
wrote in my presentation. I then researched a broad swath of literature,
but found my brain bursting. Thus, I decided to write what looks like a
thesis [6].

This was still not that clear, so I decided to take a hack at wire framing
based on my research [7], which is briefly summarized here in terms of the
wire frame starting from the top [8].

I'm delighted that Melvin is so excited about Bitmark. This could help
immensely with the Value Network / * section.

I have to wonder though. If I have been forgetting how to do sparql
queries, am I much of a programmer? Are my strengths elsewhere? Is this at
least useful?
