Welcome to the Pangaia Project, headquarters for lambda lambda lambda, accelerating the WWW to Web.∞ and creating a transition towards a sustainabie planet! It needs YOU! Its purpose: to fulfill the vision of all those people who want a a peaceful, just world. Feudalism on the Internet?? We already anticipated this repeat of history, now get down, make hackerspaces and jump back into the revolution that everyone seems to have forgotten.

Otherwise... coders and hack0rs, no gimmicky unicorns pooping fairy dust here, this project has the answers to make true OpenSourceCulture by marrying it with Open Source Agriculture and hacker lofts. We'll have fiber-to-the-Net, jet-powered bikes, be independent of the grid, and be by far the coolest kids in town with more grooves than a vinyl record shop.
This project will form a decentralized, social network of asynchronous conversations and knowledge to re-create the Internet while, simultaneously, facilitating the creation of physical HackerSpaces paired with permaculture living groups for the health and well-being of the Creative Class.
The Pangaia project uses a new data structure called a fractal graph to scale indefinitely upwards, creating both a reputation network (or meritocracy) and a unified data model (UDM) holding all data at every level of abstraction. As such, it throws out the old ideas of the "Operating System" to merge the Application with la machine. Since it incorporates FairCreditAssignment, this project, with any luck from the President, will also fix the broken system of patents for "protecting" intellectual property and create, instead, a data ecosystem to hold the world's knowledge -- ever heard of the GlassBeadGame? It's cool.
It will require re-vamping the structure of the Internet, but that's okay because it was starting to need it. DNS is not equipped for ubiquitous, mobile networking and was made in the stone age where computers took up machine rooms and belonged to the privileged classes. Not only that, but we'll need a 3-dimensional visualization model to handle the Presentation Layer of our UDM. (Awesome.) Because, as all other efforts to make decentralized communities have demonstrated, you can't scale a community with the current ~2.3 dimensions of HTML and there's no algorithm to solve the problem You've got to add another dimension to separate the orthogonal issues like user-ranking and item-ranking. Leap-frogging over RDF, we'll be using the power of the visual cortex to make relationships instead. Killer!!!
Dude, we got this all figured out, where have you been?
Pangaia forms a new kind of kernel to unify the O.S. with the Application. Grok it.
Some formulae for your imagination. Think:
- WikiPedia + a voting model * digital currency = ??
- Usenet * 3-d visualization layer + user-ranking = ??
- LOVE * [ Everything2 ] X [ slashdot ] = ??
- (Occupy + Open Currency Network) - smoking pot = ??
What's that "spell"? It doesn't spell anything; it equals awesome.

Please donate also to WikiMedia Foundation which makes WikiPedia (the greatest single knowledge source on the Internet) and the wiki software you're reading now, Mozilla Foundation who's probably underwriting your ability to access the WorldWideWeb, Xiph Foundation if you watch streaming video, and GNU Software Foundation which started the Open Source Movement!! Also, don't forgot IETF for keeping the internet working and the Internet Society along with ICANN for "keeping the light" for the Internet to be social change agent the internet is destined to be.
