Hyperspace

America 2029

Imagine looking down on earth and seeing all these building blocks waiting to be assembled.  Most people on earth don’t recognize these building blocks for the future, just lying around.  However, from up above you can see the building blocks and the people navigating around them, as if they were obstacles.  Memes look like jargon to keep insiders in and outsiders out.  A proliferation of protocols and standards is complicating what was once a simple world.   Opposing viewpoints look like gridlock instead of synergy.

The people on earth just keep going further and further out of the way to avoid these obstacles.  Life just keeps getting harder, as a growing number of building blocks continue to clutter the landscape.

What if—operating from hyperspace, above the earth—you could manipulate these massive obstacles with ease, as if moving them around with a giant crane? What if you knew exactly what you were building on earth, even though the inhabitants of earth were still unaware of this future that you were building?

What if you could describe this future that you are building to all the inhabitants of earth? What if this future was so fantastic that everybody wanted to be a part of it, as long as it came with certain guaranties? What if you could tell them what you were building, step by step, so that they could live inside this structure, as you are building it?

If you could…, then you would have America 2029!

Building Block #5: Cooperative Game Theory

Both because of global effects and because of the Fast Money business model, over the course of the next couple decades, things will be happening so fast that humans won’t be able to keep track of them.  How do you know that you are winning or losing at this new game?

Sophisticated Game Theory software will drive your computer to make certain that businesses are playing by your rules, and not the other way around.  You will set up rules in your favor, and businesses will compete according to your rules.

These strategies will be used defensively, so that individuals can protect their personal interests.  In this sense, the Game Theory is being used cooperatively.  This is distinguished from the competitive forms of Game Theory, where companies try to put each other out of business by getting the upper hand.

Inevitably, the SEC, the FTC, and other regulatory agencies will feel the need to step in with additional requirements for businesses, in order to protect everyone from fraud.  Ideally they can do so using the safeguards built into the Game Theory software.  Nevertheless, the creation of regulations actually generates more jobs, as everyone figures out how to work through the federal requirements to make money even faster.

Game Theory is so complex that you need to be a mathematical whiz to compute the equations.  Nevertheless, even laypeople can understand the basic strategies, and instruct their computers to adopt specific ones.  The computers will handle the rest.

Building Blocks

The key to productive innovation is to identify, label, and use building blocks, rather than building from scratch.  At this point, the number of tools, standards, protocols, and other building blocks is growing at an unmanageable rate.  The key is for innovators to access this information efficiently.

Most of these building blocks are accessible only by technology gurus, with little written guidelines for application experts.  Experts in all domains should be planning how to incorporate such tools as RDF (Resource Description Framework), OASIS DITA (Darwin Information Typing Architecture, FOAF (Friend of a Friend), the HTML “link” element, and an entire alphabet soup of other building blocks.  These tools let developers create “smart” systems that are easier for humans to use, yet ironically, the tools themselves are not accessible to mere mortals.

As soon as CEOs and other corporate strategists can use these tools to talk to various levels of management, and have the domain managers instruct developers to use these tools within their specific domains, then the true power of these building blocks will become evident.  Right now, the building blocks are mere toys for technologists to play with.

Henry Ford took all the knowledge of the garage tinkerers and formalized it into the modern assembly line.  We are at the point in history where the world is ready for us to automate knowledge creation using these building blocks.
