Have you ever played Civilization?
In the game, you’re discovering technologies that unlock new levels, one capability at a time. But not all innovations are equal. Better technologies of cooperation could unlock new levels of progress across the board. Opportunities for bright futures enabled by bio, nano, and computing technologies are now within our reach. Their proliferation also comes with risks and authoritarian attempts at control. This book explores how technologies of intelligent voluntary cooperation can help us navigate the traps. Cryptocommerce enables decentralized, secure cooperation across human and computing entities. This unlocks a Paretotropian future of high technology and high freedom.
This is a recording from this living book and book club about technologies for intelligent voluntary cooperation by Allison Duettmann, Mark S. Miller, and Christine Peterson, Foresight Institute.
This episode goes through chapter 5 of the book: IMPROVE COOPERATION | Info, Money, New Rights to Do Things
Enter cryptocommerce; in cryptographic ledgers, blockchains, and smart contracts, we see the rise of new law-like systems. They are technologically embodied, cryptographically shielded, and let individuals engage in secure voluntary cooperation. They are the keys to unlocking the next levels of cooperation.
With Glen Weyl, Kate Sills, Paul Gebheim.
