I’m sometimes joking when it isn’t obvious and I try to generate new ideas by bouncing things off other people. This started with the joke in the intro to the Black Country Museum that “the borders of the Black Country am weer a Black Country (o)mon says they am.” Your point too, I think.
This was a sketch of ‘test data’ for the gravitational map software I haven’t started writing yet. I think that should generate a version of this diagram.
I’ll come back to why borders are needed by Silicon Canal another day.
@pads I’m interested in the idea that we are members of multiple tribes that each have different cultural values. I think information is interpreted differently according to the values each of us selects at any time, so intended meaning can be lost in translation. I’ve been trying to find out why people voted Leave today. It may not be as bad as you think. I’ve also been playing with the idea of virtual countries sharing a land mass without dividing it. Could some people have stayed in the EU? It’s only an idea, like money.
