TransVision 2010 Presentation by Riccardo Campa
Polytopia is a philosophical experiment living on the net for the last two years, hosted as a prominent project in SpaceCollective.com. It is described as a ryzhomatic web of simultaneous explorations, confronting the necessity to create a conceptual backbone to accommodate and enhance plurality and diversity, as they are already emerging in our hyperconnected present, and are most definitely envisioned as a part of our future human communities. The presentation brings to light the main clusters of concepts that emerged in these two years of polylogue among participants, and is viewed as a work in progress.
