diigo The History of Mana
Tuesday 17th of June 2014
category: geeky
[comments]

Like ?tattoo,? ?taboo? and ?tiki,? ?mana? is a word from the Polynesian branch of the Austronesian language family. In twenty-seven of these languages, the word mana means something like ?supernatural power.? Pacific Island cultures are the origin of the concept of mana, and yet more people in the world have learned about the concept from WoW or other fantasy games. The concept is a staple of the global culture of fantasy novels and video games, many of which feature a blue bar of magical energy called ?mana.?

But how did this happen? How did a concept from Pago Pago become part of global gaming culture? How did an Austronesian spiritual force come on board the Exodar, and become part of the life of my draenei shaman? To answer this question we have to return to the Pacific, and to the Austronesians themselves.

diigo Turn Detroit into Drone Valley

"But policymakers shouldn't be trying to copy Silicon Valley. Instead, they should be figuring out what domain is (or could be) specific to their region?and then removing the regulatory hurdles for that particular domain. Because we don?t want 50 Silicon Valleys; we want 50 different variations of Silicon Valley, all unique from each other and all focusing on different domains.

Imagine a Bitcoin Valley, for instance, where some country fully legalizes cryptocurrencies for all financial functions. Or a Drone Valley, where a particular region removes all legal barriers to flying unmanned aerial vehicles locally. A Driverless Car Valley in a city that allows experimentation with different autonomous car designs, redesigned roadways and safety laws. A Stem Cell Valley. And so on."

"Wilson's algorithm uses loop-erased random walks to generate a uniform spanning tree - an unbiased sample of all possible spanning trees. Most other maze generation algorithms, such as Prim?s, random traversal and randomized depth-first traversal, do not have this beautiful property."
