Graph Minds Notebook
A series about hive minds, Borgs, egregores, and other emergent beasts
This is the series home page for the Graph Minds series, which I’m writing in a sort of working-in-public notebook format. This series explores the phenomenology of large, networked groups of humans, with and without computers in the mix.
A companion series, Mediocre Computing, deals with the frontiers of computing technologies: AI, crypto, robotics, and metaverse.
Prequels: Articles that led up to this line of thought for me. They don’t cleanly fit the overarching framework of this series, but prefigure many of the themes in messy ways. Read if interested, but not necessary for understanding the main series.
