Plan to develop it as Springwood Sandpit

Join me in these exciting, "Exponential times".
My background (past day-Job) was in computing as a Systems Analyst. Last was 10 years investigating AI. Hence my current interest in Change, Civilizational Revolution, Farming Revolution and Blockchain - Distributed Organizations.
I love all Animals and distrust all Beauocracies.
