this experiment was intended/designed for 100% of humanity. and if we’ve held true to finding a problem deep enough, a mechanism simple enough, and an system open enough for it to work everywhere.. it can be experimented – anywhere. we’re good with that.
however – if/when asked for suggested cities.. a few that come to mind because they might hasten the hastening:
madagascar: starts anyone.. via nika dubrovsky et al
longmont’s ..prospect – perhaps the space/resource infrastructure is most in place – via Jacobs ness of the design of prospect 1000ish… and/or roosevelt park – 150ish dunbar (via alliance – rp) – bend your ear ness
baltimore -[elijah, deray (bb if mayors ruled),neighbor\hood (govt) et al]
refugee camps – anywhere.. but local.. perhaps nederland [3d printing meets hexayurt.. makes it circular…no..?..very eagle and condor ish] – w hexayurts and/or 3d printed and/or crate houses.. whatever..
indigenous people …in canada – Tom; in colorade – ute people; ..
manhattan (or somewhere near/around people like Neil, Deb, danah, ..) – because it’s a location where several or at least one/some of the tech-minded people live
loveland – because this is where we’ve lived/breathed people in for a few years. so perhaps the people infrastructure is most in place
eastside – via Stephen et al
more below… no order…
