DEFINITIONS

CONTENT

An organism that expands, contracts, morphs, iterates, and permeates physical, digital, solid, and conceptual entities, objects, ecosystems, and creatures.

USER a.k.a. AUDIENCE a.k.a CONSUMER

The center, target, and focus of a healthy and functional ecosystem.

CONCEPT

The perfect beginning. Or so we think. We’ll know better when we develop it.

PRINCIPLES
