__What is the functioning space, the architectonic, of actuality? See B.Bratton’s “stack” as a conceptual knot to understand actuality in “The Black Stacks” he writes “we wrestle with the irregular abstractions of information, time, and territory, and the chaotic de-lamination of (practical) sovereignty from the occupation of place. For this, a nomos of the Cloud would, for example, draw jurisdiction not only according to the horizontal subdivision of physical sites by and for states, but also according to the vertical stacking of interdependent layers on top of one another: two geometries sometimes in cahoots, sometimes completely diagonal and unrecognizable to one another”. See also L.Parisi’s “Reprogramming Decisionism”.
__Common Utopia 2.0 = the schizophrenia between Universalism and Autonomy?
__What aspects of contemporaneity makes “modern” utopias un-actualizable?
__What is today to project autonomy”? What is “self-sufficiency” in contemporaneity? Is “autonomy” actualizable in any form? What does it mean to design for a (localized) “community”?
__In which way “green” self-sufficiency is deployed by main stream discourse becoming the new opium of the masses? How to to think nature as a process of augmentation and exiting both: the immobilizing impasse, the environmental collapse denialists, and the brainwashing greenificaton (undercover mode for more consumption)?
__How does data+infrastructure make space? See Shannon Mattern’s “Mapping Intelligent Agents” and “Indexing the World of Tomorrow”.
__What strategy and what tactics to design a community?
__“Acceleration” (N.Srnicek and A.Williams, 1–2) or “withdrawal” (J.Camatte)?
__How could a radical project for a localized community be implemented given its interconnectedness to the trans-scalar, trans-national, and ubiquitous infrastructure augmenting but also controlling the “world”?
__”Autonomy” does not mean “withdrawal” from a catastrophic reality, but the implementation of new “local” means that can serve as stimuli/examples for other development to happen globally in different forms, with different materialities and with different ideals… radically different but belonging to the one same principle (implicitly to “be” is to be a “difference” among “differences”, a multitude subjected to, within, the “generic”). Autonomy is local/universalism… a schizophrenia…, an autonomy of means (ideals/materials) that points at being together with the “all”.
__Could we start thinking the intersection between autonomy and universalism by reforming the medium of social production/exchange? New form of communication and exchange, new monetary tokens, new technology of synthesis….Blockchain: a new form of digital contracts and form of geo-affirmation? Blockchain (and its core ideology, that of verifiable-decentralization allowing emergent relations to be established without explicit coercion) should be conceptually at least implemented in community-making. Taking blockchain NOT to go towards: nomadic seclusion-withdrawals, nor into elitarian silicon-valley type of nomadism (see Thiel’s sea-steading and the techno utopians of silicon valley). “Autonomy” can be transformed in a toxic utopia sustaining the desires of the few.
__Imperatively: Community-making trough shared infrastructure require a thought that does not dwell on technocratic-parametrized bases pushed by “anarco-feudal” ideals.
__“Blockchain” could be a tool to render the process of community-sharing more transparent, or to create a local means of exchange through which the community could decide how and where internally to invest transparently (See the case of Berkeley 1–2–3,… among many others).
