Humane Engineering and Design
The systems we have are perfectly designed for the results we're getting.
We build Humane Decision Support Systems for Distributed Organisations.
Case Study: Believably Weighted Idea Meritocracy
Ray Dalio makes the business case for using radical transparency and algorithmic decision-making to create an idea meritocracy - These strategies helped Dalio create the world's most successful hedge fund through the power of data-driven group decision-making.
The problems we have cannot be solved at the same level of thinking with which we created them.
Project Catalyst strives to provide a safe and lively environment to explore the highest potential of human collaboration. Project Catalyst offers a unique opportunity to collectively build human co-intelligence projects outside of typically used funding modes.

Experiment 00 - Unstructured Swarming
Brainstorm Meets flash Mob.
We found swarm cooperation and emergent behaviours in remote-only whiteboard collaboration with no predefined authoritative or meeting structure in groups under eight. members.
Real-time cooperative design rapidly, generates ideas and peer reviews. Projects in early stage greatly benefit from synchronous, super-high-bandwidth direct feedback and idea growth.
The experience was cognitively and socially fatiguing for the members who required full concentration. Swarms very rarely suit large sizes without fragmentation. It is a highly divergent system and not useful for building toward a predefined outcome.
Adagov.org is proud to help start, continue to be a part of and support the Swarm Community.
Experiment 01 - Data Library
Co-operative Library for Links
We tried to see how a cooperative resource gathering and modification would work, but the only way to announce its development if not through centralised authority is through advertising.
We built a list of community resources and tools which we try to keep up to date, filtered and curated as a service to the Project Catalyst community.
We open-source curate for community safety and trust, but it remains hard to connect people to yet another fragmented resource online without having authoritative structures for attention and trust.
A high growth rate means the only way to notify new members about the service is to advertise periodically on social media channels. The resource became yet another dislocated resource.
Experiment 02 - Data Indexing
Swarm with Data Indexing and Connectivity
A structured idea management experience, community owned and operated with clean open data, fluid-ideation, high quality proposals, scalable community evaluation and cross assessment with focus on transparency.
