<nettime> possibly relevant, possibly not

Hi all,

This relates to some things I tried to talk about last month, but failed badly.

Agent provocateurship does seem to have caught on from the federal side too, in continuing escalation.  

The former head of DARPA is now proposing a "Health Age" to succeed the digital.  Maybe health applies to multiple spheres such as climate, green, economics, media, culture, and so forth?  It might need to work a bit like immunology, i.e. making strategic moves to balance the resurgent virality of fear, ethnonationalism, hate, and so forth, without killing the patient.  Network culture would seem to have a role in that type of system adaptation, the anti-viral as well as its opposite.

All best hopes and wishes,
