living fabulously off of society’s exhaust (part 1)

I’m exploring the concept of “living off of society’s exhaust”. What do I mean by this? Still working that out.

Our society produces two exhaust streams: Waste and information. Both involve entropy. Information can be further (sort of) divided into data and system state. Here I envision data being something like a Twitter feed and system state being for example the micro-differentials in a market that create price speculation opportunities.

I’m looking for ways to draw upon all of this for cash flow.

Will keep you posted.
