syn·site

sin.sīt
noun, verb

The future of dynamic, decentralized, and immersive digital spaces.

Decentralized: syn-site operates as a decentralized metaverse, bridging physical and digital realms. This dynamic space, where reality's boundaries blur, allows seamless transitions between real-world locations and virtual environments. Reminiscent of blockchain's decentralization, syn-site encapsulates simultaneous experiences, embodying the coexistence, evolution, and interaction of diverse elements within a networked space.

Agile: syn-site embodies agility. Like a living, breathing entity, it thrives on change and evolution, much like an Agile development team. A syn-site integrates various participants, locations, and perspectives to achieve common goals, adapting and responding to shifts in environments and conditions.

Boundaryless: syn-site exemplifies a boundaryless platform, a site where traditional barriers dissolve. It evolves continuously, adapting and reshaping itself, incorporating new components, and reconfiguring existing ones. Its boundaryless nature empowers users, encouraging active participation and co-creation within this decentralized domain.

Syn-site is not just a place, it's an experience! It marries the power of blockchain technology, the adaptability of Agile methodologies, and the boundaryless nature of modern platforms. Syn-site represents the future of spatial interaction, a quantum leap in the evolution of digital spaces. Welcome to Syn-site, where every place, thought, or dream you've ever had can coexist, interact, and create new experiences. It's not just a site, it's a universe!

SYN (along with, at the same time | from Greek SYN, with | ~SYNTHETIC) + SITE (N: point of event, occupied space, internet address; V: to place in position | from Latin SITUS, location, idleness, forgetfulness | ~WEBSITE ¬cite ¬sight), cf. SITE/NON-SITE (from Robert Smithson, A PROVISIONAL THEORY OF NONSITES, 1968)

The loam—a residue sometimes hard, mostly soft—when expressed via the rampant acceleration of data proliferation, circulation and exchange, is a rather precious, albeit strange, entity. Vibrant and disruptive, flowing and yet at times steadfast, both segment and infinite plane, it names a kind of dynamic discourse, closer to that of a living, breathing, shape-shifting mesh. Its connections are self-organising complexities, which require the practical activities of distributed intelligences.

the semiconductor-grade silicon crystal industry has much in common with the healing crystal industry (which has been experiencing a period of increased popularity thanks in part to the rise of networked digital platforms). By mapping the resonances between these two seemingly opposed crystal economies through archival and field research into both, this talk re-grounds the increasingly everyday experience of using networked technologies in geologic, environmental, and metaphysical dimensions.

There's a lot of weird overlaps between the fetishizing of networked computation as instrument of salvation or enlightenment in the tech industry and the fetishizing of crystals as instruments of salvation or enlightenment in the wellness-industrial complex.

A single click of a mouse sets off a chain reaction and sends a signal to mining farms around the world, which go on to have a footprint of 35 kWh for an ‘average’ transaction, with emissions of close to 20 KgCO2 for that single mouse click [...] An ETH transaction is thousands times more costly than other internet activities that individuals typically engage in. [...] Transactions relating to NFTs however, have more complexities involved.
[...]
A single NFT can involve dozens of transactions, and potentially more. These include minting, bidding, cancelling, sales and transfer of ownership.
[...]
This single NFT’s footprint is equivalent to a EU resident’s total electric power consumption for more than a month, with emissions equivalent to driving for 1000Km, or flying for 2 hours.
