Hope it goes well and look forward to hearing tales, and seeing documentation of all that transpires.

> We join our four islands at pivotal stages in their historic progress. Fabricating the evolution of their communities from real-world events, tendencies and possibilities we will endeavour to establish autonomous worlds whose governance systems and infrastructures give full expression to our shared dreams and nightmares.

> We set out with four communities to their islands with just hopes and dreams. After a year, their problem solving mettle has been tested by unexpected pressures and challenges. Each participant in the LARP takes a position on the ‘board’, established to resolve problems, conflicts and issues encountered by the crypto-islanders. We next join them at the                         celebration of the 50th year anniversary of the island’s founding to discover what kind of equilibrium has been reached and how has the island treated them.

Its title is inspired by a paper written by artist, hacker and writer Rob Myers called DAOWO - Decentralised Autonomous Organisation With Others.
