Datocracy: Manifesto Culture

Do manifestos shape or substitute for culture? Can we do better?
Notes from August 20th, 2021 Datocracy Podcast
cf Revolutionary Transparency

Human Intelligence Augmentation vs Artificial General Intelligence
Rational as a subset of the Real
The Legal System is the execution engine of Legal Code (cf US forking from English Common Law)
Trust is the irreducible element of systems
  • Transparent History
  • Transparent Incentives
  • Voice vs Exit (“take my data and go home”) eg BATNA
Equal data power (despite unequal real power and resources)

Datocracy is agreement on the ‘mechanism’ (protocol?) of data, with the policies being subject to debate and forking.

Q: Datocracy Constitution as both concrete “protocol” agreements and aspirational “cultural” values?
cf The Coherency Manifesto
