This is the text of a submission to the Codepoetry Slam 1.1 held at Stanford University, Division of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages. The Poietic Generator is a social network game takes place within a two-dimensional matrix in the tradition of board games and its principle is similar to both Conway’s Game of Life and the surrealists’ Exquisite corpse. Every player draws on a small part of a global mosaic formed by the dynamic juxtaposition of those parts, which are manipulated by all the participants (eventually it will be possible for several thousand players to play simultaneously). Every player can therefore change the sign in his/her square, depending on the overall state of the image, which itself depends on the actions of all the individual players.

Foundations for a Mathematical Model of the Global Brain Francis Heylighen (GBI,VUB) Abstract: The present talk will report on the on-going research of the Global Brain Institute with the aim of developing a mathematically founded computer simulation of the global brain, and summarize the main results up to now. The global brain can be defined as the distributed intelligence emerging from the network of all people on this planet connected via the Internet and related technologies. The present talk proposes the foundations for a mathematical model of the self-organization of such a network towards increasing intelligence.

Autopoietic DACs Autopoietic DACs (Defined as a self creating/self constructing decentralized autonomous corporation which is seeded by an instruction set, watered by crowd funding, and provided sunlight through community participation). To understand how DACs are created we can remember the metaphor of seed, water, sunlight (SWS). Every DAC starts as an instruction set which is just an algorithm which determines how it will behave and what it can grow into. The instruction set is akin to the DNA of the DAC.
