I’d like to replace ideologies that focus on code, and what others can and cannot do with the code we create, with ideologies that focus on people, specifically with a focus on who benefits, and who doesn’t, from the code we create. What does a people-centric collaborative software development model look like? I’d like to explore some basic properties that such a model ought to have, as a starting place for building new institutions to support productive, non-exploitative software development.
We are an international network of people committed to tackling the cause, rather than the symptoms, of a myriad of social and environmental problems to create a positive world future that does not depend on economic growth.

Phi Beta Iota: One of the most useful important PhDs done in modern times.
My name is Jeremy Lent and I’m the founder of The Liology Institute, an organization dedicated to fostering a worldview that could enable humanity to thrive sustainably on this planet. My work explores the profound and far-reaching implications of recognizing that meaning arises intrinsically from the natural world, and points the way to how we humans might shift our worldview to find a sustainable way of living on the earth.
It is my hope that liology can help by offering a framework for this new storyline – a framework that integrates both science and spiritual wisdom to recognize that the deepest spiritual fulfillment a human being can experience arises from the understanding of our intrinsic connectivity with the natural world – both within ourselves and all around us.
