Click the #general, that’s where everyone is. Your probably in the direct message with the slack botJune 25, 2017 at 2:08 pm #17547Brian EParticipant
Great idea, having a place that everyone can discuss events in real time could become important, and play a factor in the future. Also this brings everyone together so if info needs to get out there and discussed it can be discussed with everyone.
Looking forward to seeing where the future of this leads us together as a community.June 25, 2017 at 2:18 pm #17548
@kingkill33 I relate to and respect what you’re saying. However, we do have choices. We can continue to follow the story in whatever way decreed by Joyce/TPTB. We can continue participating solely on the forum, and take whatever interaction we do or don’t get. Or, we can walk away and engage more presently in our own story (ie: RL). The choice is entirely up to us.
We will not cease to exist if they choose to stop investing in us. However, they are entirely reliant on our investment. Really, we are all “the Investors”.
I can only assume this chat room is an attempt to gauge how much more time/effort/energy/LUST we are willing to give of ourselves. But, imo (and, along the line of your concerns), it’s important to remember that time/effort/energy are also forms of currency, and should be spent frugally.
Just my two cents (pun maybe intended).June 25, 2017 at 2:22 pm #17549Brad RuweParticipant
Man, I take metro out to lunch, and come back to being called out. Message received. Looking back, I maaaay have been projecting a bit. Still don’t support the investors though…
And no @joycecarlberg, not abusive at all. Making a statement of fact is one thing, trying to control the life of another is different.June 25, 2017 at 2:27 pm #17550Lukas LParticipant
Could HCDI stand for “human capital devolopment initiative” Googled acronym and it seems to fit.June 25, 2017 at 2:29 pm #17551June 25, 2017 at 2:31 pm #17552Buz WallickModerator
Could HCDI stand for “human capital devolopment initiative” Googled acronym and it seems to fit.
That… that fits so fucking well.
Here’s some Wiki on it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_capital
Human capital is a term popularized by Gary Becker, an economist from the University of Chicago, and Jacob Mincer that refers to the stock of knowledge, habits, social and personality attributes, including creativity, embodied in the ability to perform labor so as to produce economic value.
Alternatively, human capital is a collection of traits – all the knowledge, talents, skills, abilities, experience, intelligence, training, judgment, and wisdom possessed individually and collectively by individuals in a population. These resources are the total capacity of the people that represents a form of wealth which can be directed to accomplish the goals of the nation or state or a portion thereof.June 25, 2017 at 2:33 pm #17553June 25, 2017 at 2:35 pm #17554Meghan MayhemParticipant
@kasch I most definitely agree with the possibility that HDCI could be the WEJune 25, 2017 at 2:39 pm #17555JoyceCarlbergParticipantJune 25, 2017 at 2:41 pm #17556CristenParticipant
Great call @lukasrl. We’ve already had Sarah/The System using our creativity against one of our own, and our clever little ideas and theories are being scrutinized on the daily. Might as well, in essence, “monetize” it.June 25, 2017 at 2:44 pm #17557Mustafa SaidParticipant
HCDI…yet another acronym we gotta learn about.
SO I guess it could be a re-branding attempt by the OSDM, just a name change. It could also be that the OSDM still exists and that these guys are the Investment branch of the group, the bookkeepers and the people who crunch and manage the numbers and analyze the data coming in.
One way or another, we’ll learn what that stands for. Only a matter of time.June 25, 2017 at 2:55 pm #17558Bryan BishopParticipant
We invest in those who invest in us.
Looks like we have confirmation on the entity behind the calls the other night.June 25, 2017 at 3:01 pm #17559
Interesting choice of avatar, @joycecarlberg. “The Garden of Earthly Delights”. Are you a fan of Bosch’s work?June 25, 2017 at 3:08 pm #17560
