Distributed autonomous corporations

The Economist, 2014:

Imagine a corporation that engages in economic activity without guidance or direction from humans. Programmed with a mission statement—maximize profit for shareholders from the sale of widgets, for example—the corporation could own capital, enter contracts, and employ robots. People could even be hired for more creative tasks. Such an entity would live on the Internet, distributed across thousands or millions of nodes (stakeholders who host the DAC on their computer).

Thing: Timecraft

Timecraft are able to traverse network nodes in a timegrid. They may be projections, as is the case with Gimgle gloams, or they may be occupied or at the very least piloted craft.
