Assuming that we are our technics more than we think, but that we are not
only our technics ..

I resolve:

* to work to abandon the categorisation of the digital as a substance, and
instead explore its modal entanglements in the world

* to explore the questions of the instruction/code/technics at a 
"molecular="  level (in Guattari's sense), and work with others who 
are developing new approaches to the instruction/code/technics, more 
immersed in contingency and a complex materialism.

* to look, rework, and distribute new instructions and 
uninstructions, rules and anti-rules (eg Spehr .. the first rule of 
free cooperation is that you can opt out whenever you want) ... 
proposals, algorithms, code snippets, cross-signals, propositions, 
prehensions, concrescences, d=E9tournements, etc,
design processes, models, metamodels, micromodels, unmodels, diagrams,
undiagrams, escape plans, habits, memories, ... composition ...
