Internet II: A unified data eco-system to re-organize the Internet and make the Creative Economy. This project is 90% of the way to a working prototype. For the curious, there is a simple demo that provides a (small) sense of the (large) possibilities waiting for the 3-d Web. [GNU GPL3]

Hello! This is a software project to create Internet II: a unified content-addressed network to replace the legacy DNS-addressed network. It will address all the issues of PIPA/SOPA along with the spiritual and economic woes of the Intellectual and Creative Classes. Currently in pre-alpha and awaiting more code, but a simple concept demo of a 3-d web is available. See the wiki for more specs and throw out the old, balkanized Web! Its aim is high: to implement Hermann Hesse's "Glass Bead Game" and usher in a new age of wise governance through the use of a reputation model and a maximally collaborative (P2P) "Society of Mind"* that will organize all content. As a self-organizing system, it will create a beautiful economy of knowledge and value, giving fair-credit to each contributor, solving once and for all the issues of democracy and global economics. It will be AWESOME! Believe it or not, although there's only half-dozen files, the pangaia project represents a capstone to a large body of effort. It's nearly 90% there to a working prototype (50% if I can't get the physics right). Now we just need to set the relationships from the data network to their visual representations and map the mouse events. (See source files for TODO lists.) The basic demo(.py) is easy to zoom around in and get a sense of the 3-d environment. See the INSTALL file to get it up and running! And see the working paper at <http://ow.ly/vRnw2> for how it all fits it into a comprehensive plan to fix the toughest problems in the world. Your ideas and contributions are encouraged and most welcome! Thanks for your interest. Please check the wiki for documentation. This Software is licensed under the GNU GPL3.
