The Best Dream Keeps on Going!

Dream type: Constraint

This dream that I am imaging is amazing. It could happen in the next few years. This would help everyone. There would be more homeless societies. Many homeless people die everyday from not having food, jobs, or places to live. Next we would make a system where there will be no polution. That would help us and the animals. Also, I would want there to be more security gadgets. Many people are losing special things because they are being robbed. My dream is great and with the things we have and California has together we can make a change!

Learning

Dream type: Transformation

I dream of us in cub scouts. Everyday we go on a walk. Everyone is in cub scouts and boy scouts and likes it a lot. Everyone has improved and learned in boy scouts and cub scouts. We make a lot of things in cub scouts.

Instrumented, global, transparent, and clean

Dream type: Transformation

State & civic infrastructure is fully instrumented, driving virtual models and meta-models that report to dashboards and enable scenario modeling of optimizations prior to implementation. Los Angeles has an ecosystem of independent storytellers that deliver immersive transmedia engagements that are custom-tailored by social algorithms to speak to individuals and affinity groups, not just blockbuster audiences. San Francisco has become the de facto center of governance & data management, having integrated its technology nexus with the operational requirements of the state and their global collaborators. All roofs are required to have solar panels but pay no energy utilities.

A Health Priority: Keeping Your Good Health

Dream type: Transformation

California does not focus on Illness, where being sick is the norm, but California focuses on keeping and maintaining each person’s good health, from childhood to adulthood. Promoting a healthy lifestyle and prevention is California’s health priority. Life is not about the latest medicines, the latest glucose monitor, it’s not about looking towards your weekly trip to the outpatient clinic, but it’s about enjoying life, free of ailments, as a result of all the many simple, inexpensive, even free, ways and techniques you have been educated and informed with on how to keep yourself stress-free, relaxed, laughing, positive, and happy.

Verse Vendor

Dream type: Transformation

So I'm walking along, "Oh, look at how sunny California is," I think. I go into my local coffee shop for a date with this woman & "OMG!" There's a vending machine for poetry. I guess I have 3 bucks on my credit card. Cool, it'll totally impress this woman. Oh and I can pick from Bruce Sterling, Al Young (former poet laureate of California) & a bunch of people I don't know. It comes with a piece of gum. Awesome. Sold. It even printed it on newsprint for me. Wow. Wouldn't that be cool: to support our artists!

Critical Party

Dream type: Transformation

"A sober-minded assessment of risks and resources" leads California to re-valuate the breadth and depth of its cognitive surplus. Now "California knows how to party" even better and my work feels moar like play. I participate in a superstructure called Critical Party QG. We mash up pop culture with stigmergy networks to produce lively collaboration contexts and project coordination strategies. As a Memeticist, I research Other People's Metaphors and measure their semantic integrity. The strongest bridges support most of tomorrow's parties (edge innovations). This is planetary stewardship with SyCC beats (strongly connected components)!

I'm not in Cali anymore!

Dream type: Collapse

Okay so this is my daily life. Open up the curtains to see "For Sale" signs all up and down the street. Go into the kitchen to eat generic brand cereal because i just lost my job and is living on govermental funds. I walk outside to go to the bus stop and see abandonded houses. Buy a newspaper at a local dollar store to see in the headlines "Robbery's Becoming New?". Go home. Eat T.V. dinners and try to find a way to pay my bills. I swear, This wasnt the Cali ten years ago!

California Communities Transformed by Regionalized Sustainable Food System

Dream type: Transformation

A future day reveals California transformed by community based economic innovations in the food system. On this day, California’s communities are connected, resilient and strong. I see a future in which our neighborhoods have a vibrant food and farm industry; we are healthy by accessing fresh affordable food; our rich diversity is expressed by preserving food heritage; our environment is free of industrial toxins; and our once disenfranchised communities are empowered to sustain their own health and beyond. Support my project Farm Food Connect in developing models, tools and incentives that enable this dream to be a reality.

Infrastructure and Exports Restore California as an Economic Power

Dream type: Transformation

High tides flood low-lying areas while a series of desalination power-dikes are built. Most of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach adapt to higher seas first. The Golden Gate Northern Rail Dike causes inland ports to close. As a result, a controversial port is being built in Half Moon Bay, and most inland oil refineries now produce biofuel from home-grown algae. Because of expensive importation costs, California has become a major manufacturing state, exporting durable goods, vehicles, clean tech, and bio-pharmaceuticals. The resulting economic growth fuels the sustainable expansion of dry cities to absorb migrations from flooded communities.
