Datus & Nusas

This week's Town Hall is with Daniel Bashir, a machine learning compiler engineer and host of The Gradient Podcast. He will be connecting the dots between AI and protocols, tomorrow, Wednesday, May 29th at 1PM Eastern Time. Tune in here.

Yesterday was the first day of the two-day Datus and Nusas protocols workshop in Singapore. SoP community members spent the morning unpacking the concept of Nusantara, and the afternoon trying to explore it through protocol-based mental models. Here’s a graphic one of the attendees Daniel Tan, made of the conversation:

The aim of this workshop is to discover and begin codifying the unique principles and practices of cooperation and multilateral governance that characterize the Nusantara region. If you're interested in learning more, Venkat and Rithikha have been posting highlights in this forum thread.


P.O.G. Highlight: ARC Regenerative Communities Protocol

This project, run by Kaliya and Day, is about outcome-driven civilizational design. Their focus this summer is to study how the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), as a community, uses recursive protocols to extend itself.

Kaliya Young

Kaliya co-founded the Internet Identity Workshop (IIW), launched many other events, and authored two books: Domains of Identity (2020) and A Comprehensive Guide to Self Sovereign Identity (2018)

Day Waterbury

Day is a Co-Founder of Consensual Ventures and Technical Lead at HPEC. His mission is to equip the regenerative movement at scale at the pace of the polycrisis.

"The IETF is kept alive by the energy of people and their decision to actively contribute their energy to the creation of the protocols they develop there."

As part of this orienteering project, Kaliya and Day have assembled an impressive reading list (this is just part of it – see the full list here):


Town Hall Recording

Sarah Friend led the last SoP23 Research Salon with a talk on a her essay, Good Death.

The core thesis of this essay is that the death of a world is a decision-making process with a duration, rather than an atomic event, and that a clearer understanding of mortality in a protocological context can improve archiving processes and memorialization.

By considering their death, we can better understand what constitutes the life of these worlds
