  1. Perhaps the easiest is to join our Discord server, follow the instructions, and self-check-in to being part of this great Project – namely, one of the “Gromies!”
  2. After having read up & been down with the Manifesto, The Grove Way, and checking out the first edition of Swag*inista Radio, shoot us an email – stormygrove a-t gmail.com. Replace the “a-t” with an actual “@” symbol when you do, of course. That’s what we in the business call “trying not to get our inbox inundated with spam”.
  3. Be personally fast-tracked by a member of the Royal Court. Y’all that fall under this category enter immediately, but are still obligated to, soon after, read the Manifesto & The Grove Way, and check out the first edition of S*R.

Why Cybersyn?

Project Cybersyn is the media network “arm” of the Stormy Grove Nation.

Why “Project Cybersyn”? Well…

…as anyone who has had a good look at the Stormy Grove’s site knows, the Grove is a society project for people who are about rationality, progress, community, and who are overall above the fray. Of course, it’s left-wing, socialistic ideologies that fit the best with this way of life. As won’t be surprising, I have a lot of socialist heroes.

One of those heroes is Salvador Guillermo Allende Gossens, the first democratically-elected Latin-American Marxist president, who became the leader of Chile in 1970. He had a vision; he really did wanna see his country truly be civilized and progressive and overall simply awesome!

One of the projects his administration kickstarted was Project Cybersyn, a very early “internet-ish” network of telex machines and computers linking important economic assets and infrastructure, such as factories, to each other and a central “hub room” in the Chilean capital of Santiago, complete with informational displays and equipment along with quite swanky, retro-futuristic seating for its users. The purpose of this network was to manage the new socialist economy and help foster its success. Short for “cybernetic synergy” in English (and known in Spanish as “Synco” – an adapted initialism for “Sistema de INformación y COntrol” and a pun on “cinco”, Spanish for “five”, alluding to architect of Project Cybersyn Stafford Beer‘s five-level viable system model), it was a marvel of early 1970s information technology and represented a true civilization’s way of governance.

Despite his election victory being legit… Chile’s right-wing sections immediately had a hissy fit from day one of his rule and already made a botched coup attempt even before he was sworn in as president by killing the national army’s Commander in Chief and maintaining a considerable propaganda campaign funded by the CIA during the entirety of his short presidency.

But, unfortunately, this train of progress would see its tracks get blown up and a resultant derailing, starting with a series of false, right-wing labor strikes, and coming to a real head on September 11, 1963. That was the day that all the selfish, right-wing, neofeudalist forces that abhorred this “we over me”, progressive way that Chile was being led, led by a truly abhorrent being known as Augusto Pinochet, led a coup that seized control of the country and drove President Allende to suicide. They didn’t want sustainability, fairness, equality, dignity, prosperity, opportunity, and justice for all, damn it! They wanted to have their cliques, an elite, grab and hoard as much prosperity as they could, at the expense of an underclass, by Jove! Screw sharing, community spirit, and being decent citizens!

The network was dismantled, and Chile was forced into regressing to feudalism. To this day, the country is not nearly as advanced as it could’ve been had civilization itself not been stopped in its tracks back in 1973.

This name honors President Allende’s efforts at building a great civilization and the technological innovation involved in such.

Seriously, y’all, let’s take some time and think about what “Cybersyn” stands for: “cybernetic synergy”, which, in a nutshell, means a bio-technological network in harmony with each other and its surroundings. Such a network is a hallmark of high technology and an essential element at the heart of a modern, progressive, rational civilization. It’s a means for the sharing of information, knowledge, and art; the bonding of sapient beings; the unity and harmony of communities – of peoples – as part of a greater nation. Whether the interfaces are walkie-talkies, laptops, tablets, smartphones, ham radios, holographic glasses, or straight-up implanted networking tech or whatever else; whatever the frequency of the medium; the principle and essential element stands firm and the same.

It may seem, at first glance, that the Grove claiming this “new Project Cybersyn” as a spiritual successor to the original is comparing apples to oranges. But, in reality, it’s not. The original Project Cybersyn was a network at the heart of a civilization for the betterment of said civilization. This new one is a network at the heart of a civilization, for the betterment of said civilization, as well.

From YouTube channels to streaming radio, from amateur and CB radio to blogs, from traditional radio to streaming video and beyond and beyond, the Grove is proud to have built, be building, and continue to build a network of true “cybernetic synergy” at the heart of this society – this civilization – that stands above the fray.

Let’s make progress together.
