模倣子 Update Mid-September

 Memetic Essay Index 

I got into an on-line course on Game Theory, but wasn't able to  complete it. I plan to try again later, since I think it will be super-relevant to deployment theory. I am stalled out on writing up my baseball and chess models (more here) of deployment.

I did a lot of stuff with baseball and chess while I was over in Japan, but much of the baseball stuff, at least (graphics and such) still needs to be uploaded, it seems.

I made a lot of progress with how immunomemetic notation works and how it also seems to relate to alliance theory and notation. Isaac and I had some good chats about this, too (I can't remember what we came up with, though (!-.-) ).

I have kind of stalled out on categorizing all my essays, but I have done some of it, i.e., added keywords to the list. The next phase is to add lists of essays to the glossary document. At that point I should have a better idea of which macromemetic concepts are well-documented and which are not. Hopefully that will lead to being able to finally start on some kind of textbook or handbook or manual.

The Three-Narrative Model seems to be very promising. I have already applied it to a number of situations and have gotten good feedback. The next step may be to come up with some rigorous (meme-level) descriptions of real situations, and maybe tie it to some kind of notational system.

Also, while in Japan, I got the idea for writing a self-help book illustrating the personal finance and life planning systems I've come up with over the years for my Franklin Day Planner, i.e., customizations I've made.

I also thought I should make a comic book that illustrates the See-and-Say Steering Wheel concept for reducing road rage and traffic congestion. I already wrote to the engineer guy who tricked out his own car horn system (and made the "glitter stink bomb" on YouTube) but have not heard back (need to try again).

So, in summary for now:

a) Finish categorizing essay list by keywords (glossary terms)
b) Place links to various essays next to glossary terms
c) complete game theory (and sociology) courses (coursera.org, U of Idaho?)
d) Investigate how Game Theory may inform deployment decisions (in chess and baseball models)
e) Find a rigorous application for the Triple Narrative model (possibly involving immunomemetic notation).
f) Storyboard out and write (during NaNoWriMo?) comic book about See-and-Say Steering Wheel
g) Write self-help book (during NaNoWriMo?)
