Internet of Humans matchmaking event in Stockholm

I intend to be present. I live within walking distance so it should not be difficult.
I am active within DFRI fighting for digital rights.

We’ve started having video calls with participants to do little interviews. Zenna interviewed @mattiasx today, and he interviewed her. Then Mattias got the transcript of his own words and edited it into a post, which you can read here:

These interviews and the posts they generate will inform the tracks of the event on May 11th.

Who would like to go next?

Before the main event, @alberto will give a session on how we in Edgeryders use collective intelligence.

Albertos session starts at 13:00, and the main event starts at 14:00.

How can we structure online conversations to build powerful collective intelligence? What tools would we need to be able to navigate our networks of collective intelligence as well as we navigate our own thoughts, experiences and opinions?

Edgeryders have developed tools and methods with this in mind, drawing upon digital ethnography, semantic social network analysis and online community management practices.

In this workshop we’ll give you an interactive demonstration of our tools with real data, talk about how increased collision rates and dense networks accelerate innovation and inspire you to think about how to find unknown solutions to hidden problems. You will learn about the bleeding edge of large scale digital ethnography and sense making through Semantic Social Network Analysis.

Hi @hugi. Thanks for the kind words.
I think I’ve moved from being fascinated to feeling more or less fed up with the ideologies and products coming from the valley. A process over the last ten years or so, where the internet I grew up on got replaced by social media products that are affecting me and people around me in ways I don’t like.

Very interesting indeed, I want to attend.

I was a Member of the European Parliament for the (Swedish) Pirate Party 2009-2014. As an MEP I focused almost exclusively on issues related to the free and open internet, such as copyright reform and trying to limit mass surveillance.

I became a political activist in 2004 over the EU directive on Software Patents, and have been ever since. I find it truly amazing and fascinating how a swarm of activists, working together over the internet, can succeed in both understanding the very complicated EU legislative process, and changing its outcome.

I am convinced that we are right now witnessing the emergence of a collective intelligence (or multiple collective intelligences) in the form of swarm(s) of activists.

If this is indeed the case, I think that this will (hopefully) be the future of democracy in the EU, enabling citizens to take an active part. The EU legislative process is too complicated for a single citizen to really understand and follow. But a swarm of citizens can do it, as we have demonstrated several times in the last 15 years, and will hopefully demonstrate again.

Thanks for the invite via the scuttleverse Hugi! I’m in for this one!
I just signed up on this site, so I guess I’m new to Edgeryders.

Short intro on me:
I’m a (originally Dutch) full-stack system developer living and working in North-Sweden for one of Nordics bigger newspaper companies. In my free time I like building sites, apps and software systems (mostly from and for space/sat related tech). This meetup seems to be right up my alley :wink:

See you folks there!

Great news! You will be a very important addition. Indeed, we need to employ this alliance towards both technical developments and policy activism.

Happy to have you with us @nadan!

This I would love to hear more about @hendrikpeter. Any links you want to share?

Hey! I’d love to attend. I’m building Human Network - a social network for movements - and Fluent, a distributed network of speciality talent that accelerates products/companies with a positive impact. Curious about the alliance!

Great! Very happy to have you Rasmus!

I’ve confirmed my travel arrangements. Looking forward to the event and to seeing Sweden for the first time.

Great! How long will you be here and where are you staying? You are more than welcome to come work from Blivande while you are in Stockholm. We always make room for guests in Edgeryders projects.

Hi, I am really interested in such an event! I think the ambition of the project is great and really glad to have found a forum to discuss this. I’ve recently opened a startup with the goal of building a consumer-centered portal that focuses on data integrity. We are building a safe portal for the web, for stopping the sell of data and the tracking. The alpha version of our work can be seen here: NoNoRank. Hopefully a new Internet is possible. I would really appreciate to participate and discuss! :slight_smile:

Welcome @matteo_ghetti!

Great! How long will you be here and where are you staying?

I arrive Friday and return to Paris on Monday, but I’ll be visit Linkoping on Sunday. I booked an airbnb a walkable distance from the location.

I’ll probably come and check out the space on Friday just so I know how to get there.

Hello @Engstrom_PP, welcome! I read and greatly enjoyed your book – in fact, some of your insights are embedded into the fabric of how Edgeryders is organized. We even briefly met in Stockholm once, though you probably do not remember me.

Thing is, I am working on the mathematics of detecting and interpreting “swarming” in the context of an online conversation. It is several levels of abstraction removed from *Swarmwise", but I think you will resonate. I am giving a presentation of it, just before the main event, and you are more than welcome to attend.

Looking forward to seeing you at Blivande!
