CIBS is a high risk / high gain endavour in which a unifying but simple framework is being proposed for explaining and resolving apparently disparate “bubble” phenomena across sectors, domains and even institutions characterizing much human behavior, thereby answering key questions like: What – are the socio-informational dynamics underlying the practices of obtaining and internalizing information via social proof? – structural similarities and differences between these phenomena are identifiable in the formal models? – are the generic features of the different bubble-hospitable ontologies from financial markets all the way to opinion market places and other agent interactive settings, virtual – as well as real?
