Sylabbi is a tool for hybrid curated trails/narratives. An alternative to how people currently select the books (and other media) they study, beyond whimsicality. It's a part of the 🔗text system.

"At the same time, the whole logic of choice ("what to read") is also considered and made a part of the system, denying legitimacy to arbitrary pickings in libraries/bookshops, and actively referring to the next of your 1000 books you'll ever read (out of the ~100 mil.). An alternative (sylabbi) is investigated, and programatically put in place of, to the known institutions of university reading lists, chasing references in likeable texts, and showers of recommendations."
Sylabbi is about assisting people to do tactical 🔗hypertheory in different groupations, for example:
* "Comrades", in conviction:
people with similar interests, possibly cross-disciplinary teams that know each other
* "Neighbours", inside fields:
people algorithmically determined to be fellow travellers
filling and expanding the spaces between different established fields
didactic groups with personal interaction
people you personally know very well
* curated personal and group trails
1-2 orders of magnitude increase in theory coordinates ("ideosphere").

"transclusion -> trails -> sylabbi"
The syllabus is a "contract between faculty members and their students, designed to answer students' questions about a course, as well as inform them about what will happen should they fail to meet course expectations." 
It is also a "vehicle for expressing accountability and commitment" (2005, p. 63).
Over time, the notion of a syllabus as a contract has grown more literal but is not in fact an enforceable contract.
* as INFO
* as CONTRACT (accountability/commitment) !!!
