A leading commentator and speaker on modern trends, his nonfiction book The Transparent Society won the Freedom of Speech Award of the American Library Association. Brin's newest novel EXISTENCE explores the ultimate question: billions of planets are ripe for life. So where is Everybody? David's main thread: how will we shape the days and years ahead -- and how will tomorrow shape us?

It is a flexible framework with customization for various communities and needs. Fabriq will allow communities to self-govern according to liquid democratic principles and manage common resources. Using reputation tokens, it can afford participants governance abilities, the ability to start a separate community, and serves as a contextual value metric.
