Way back in 1991 at the wedding of a college buddy I was introduced to LambdaMOO, a text-based virtual reality system. The MOO was a freewheeling environment with characters like Spatula, Obvious, Autumn, Sick, Skeptical, and Eclipse. There was a hot tub, an I Ching garden, a nightclub, an architectural review board, and a sophisticated programming system for building rooms, vehicles, communication systems, and activities. I'm bringing this freewheeling architecture back with Scoby Social.
The purpose of Scoby Society is to support our members in building authentic, healthy relationships online. Through our app, academy, studio, blog and other communications systems we invite people to relate to themselves and others in new and inspiring ways, leaving behind old patterns that no longer serve them.
When I first got involved in the internet -- way back in 1991, I thought it would turn out very differently. I thought it would be this amazing space for discovery, connection, and experiences. Instead, it's become more like a strip mall with a vape shop, fast food joint and vast parking lot. We're bringing back the old weird internet in a very new way.
