So it's back, again.

My last profile update was immediately after the BBC took over, hence the:

"So it's backā€¦
And, to all appearances, a mere shadow of what it should be. But then it always was. Let's give it a little time and see if there's any sort of emergent understanding of the interaction between information, individuals, groups and value systems. Place your bets now please..."

To my astonishment, the efforts of the community managed to keep it going, despite the best efforts of the BBC to destroy the interaction that made it possible. So now it's revenant, back under the control of its community, and here's to a brighter future, albeit in a very different world, one that it helped to inspire.
