of scenarios are currently provided, so are tools for creating your
own scenarios. In fact, the source code is also available
in order that you can extend it as you wish, under a modified version
of an open source license. If you have particular suggestions, we're
happy to hear them. If you want a particular feature and have resources,
we can explore that too.
model grew out of Mathematica simulations for my dissertation research
at MIT, a collection of four essays under the title Managing Information:
Networks, Value, Policy & Principles. The scope, however, has
expanded considerably thanks to the remarkable talents of Piotr Dollar
and Paul Laskowski who have developed new strategies, designed the tools
for creating scenarios, adapted simulations of other scholars, and documented
the code. Eddie Gomez has contributed an interface that greatly clarifies
what are otherwise incomprehensible mathematical hieroglyphs. Elliot
Waingold first translated the Mathematica notebooks into Java.
motivation is to explore the economics of information. In particular,
competition born of scarcity might yield to cooperation born of abundance.
If the value of information can rise or fall with increased access,
how do we generate conditions for its rise?
