The image in the header uses my convention of having red arrows represent incompatibility or an inability to communicate well, while black arrows are for good social connections. Both diagrams show three women, Xena, Yvonne and Zelda. In the top diagram, Xena has struck up a friendship with Zelda. The red arrow indicates that this is a mistake. Yvonne and Zelda get along together in both diagrams, but Xena has made the wrong choice. If she struck up a friendship with Yvonne instead of Zelda, everything would be much better.
I continue to use the clickable image below, though it dates from a time when I naively ignored the dangers of Social Technology.
Like all truly advanced technology, these solutions to social problems will involve a lot of math, but must not require users to have special knowledge or skills. Programmers are invited to help with the development of open source libraries for applied social mathematics.
Non-technical accounts of all these topics as well as accessible accounts of the underlying math are on the front pages of a network of associated websites.
