"The free market is like the Borg in its attempt to bring more and more people into its circle of influence. But, unlike the Borg, the free market does not eliminate individuality. On the contrary, it fosters individuality. It encourages people to assess their talents and opportunities. This way, individuals can locate other individuals who are happy to pay them for their services."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
