Today I completed editing on Swarm 2.0, an edited version of Swarmwise by Rick Falkvinge.
The object of this project, started in 2014 and ongoing, is to produce training material on initiating, growing and assisting swarms. What’s a swarm?
“A swarm is a decentralized, collaborative effort of volunteers that looks like a traditional hierarchical organization from the outside. It is built by a small core of people that construct a scaffolding of go-to people, enabling numbers of volunteers to cooperate on a common goal on a scale not possible before the net.” – Rick Falkvinge
Sounds good to me.
The next step is to produce an interactive visual novel (using the Ren’Py game development package – for now) that will let someone with a swarmworthy idea educate themselves on the steps to create and grow a swarm. At this point the Swarmsteps game is the fragments abstracted from “Swarmwise” – so if you’re a game dev, an artist, a musician or someone who wants to learn, let me know.
