Is this ‘forking’ simply what most folks did in #rhizo14, branch off into ‘tribe’ spaces? Would you be seeing this as a software embodiment of that natural forking? If so, I think there is a problem. I only have so much attention. Would I be splitting off a piece of that attention (you know, like Voldemort’s horcruxes) for each fork I was participating in or would it be more like the Red Queen exhorting Alice (you know, if you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast) or would it be like the constant recursion in the facing barbershop mirrors (you know, our attention receding into them until it can’t be seen)?
On the other hand, part of me would love to try it just to see the train wreck that might ensue and the folks who might crawl from that wreckage. NSFW Bill Hicks routine about kids on airplanes seems to fit because we all might learn something: http://youtu.be/_Q3U9xZQf4w?t=1m33s
