Definition of Meshworker

A Meshworker of the Year demonstrates the meshworking intelligence as defined on the website .  Meshworking intelligence creates a “meshwork” by weaving together the best of two operating systems — one that self-organizes, and one that replicates holarchical structures. The resulting meshwork creates and aligns complex responsive structures and systems that flex and flow.
