Hacking at hierarchy

Usual monthly meet-up in the Rose and Crown, get the right one there are two in Southwark!

This is an informal drinks event to discuss Libertarian theories, recent news and events in general, the state of libertarianism in the various parties and in the culture.

To get us started Adriana Lukas will be speaking on the topic of system architecture and hacking heterarchy into system design.

Hacking verb

1. to make furniture with an axe,

2. "To program a computer in a clever, virtuosic, and wizardly manner."

Hierarchy noun

Structurally a hierarchy is a network in which nodes are related only to nodes that are inferior or superior to themselves. Superior nodes possess authority over inferior ones.

Heterarchy noun

A heterarchy is a system of organization replete with overlap, multiplicity, mixed ascendancy, and/or divergent-but-coexistent patterns of relation.

 

Adriana will explain, to an audience usually replete with computer programmers, what features a system needs for it to sustainably enhance liberty. Unsurprisingly, the answers have as much to do with people and organisations as they do NAND-gates and hexadecimal.

As ever, there will be plenty of time to talk about everything else as well.

We have the room book upstairs all night. Adrianna will speak at 8. Ask the landlady where we are if you can't find us.

    Good talk. However, voluntary incorporation within some commercial hierarchy is an exercise of liberty and not its elimination.

    Been looking for a group like this for a while, pity I can't attend the next meetup but will definitely mark the date for the one after.

      If "HashedALGO" is a reference to hashing algorithms then you might like to make the effort for this talk as there may not be a similar talk again for a while.

    I will be heading back towards Bromley afterwards possibly by taxi. Anyone interesting in sharing one should make themselves known.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
