Think of human services as something you guide through collaborative Governances that share ideas and advances at the speed of networks. When we work together vendors will learn to design the products and services you want.
In case you missed it, the rover in Gale Crater on Mars has achieved another milestone, having traversed across rough terrain with minimal damage to its delicate wheels and now sits at the base of Mount Sharp, where it will begin its ascent. What's on its agenda?
Poland-based Omni3D is a 3-D printing manufacturer that has come up with a wind turbine, the AirEnergy3D, that operates in low wind conditions and generate 300 watts of continuous power. That's enough to keep a laptop computer, several smartphones and a couple of light bulbs burning. The company has a Kickstarter campaign on the go and have raised the target amount they requested and some from numerous pledges.
Expandiverse Technology includes Governances so groups can turn problems into opportunities to reach shared goals. This chapter and the next shows what a Governance is, and how different kinds of people might use it to achieve a larger goal — healthy, natural food.

The thought occurred to me that mounting a video projector to a flying drone could give it unusual capabilities.
