Re: [ba-ohs-talk] Hyperscope Launch Plan & The Digital Promise Project: A Digital Gift to the Nation

and gone ...    (01)

Perhaps, the following links will help your penultimate prejudice that is
plagued by doubt?    (02)

1) DARPA NGI Talk: the Digital Gaia

Unleashing the world's greatest computational resource    (08)

The Internet is a huge laboratory for experimenting with collaboration.
