TelosVM is a framework for distributed computation as social agency. To learn about the TelosVM framework please take a look at this concept paper authored for a distributed systems course in March 2014.
TelosVM was conceptualized when its author, N.D. Jebessa, was a doctoral candidate with ASCI (at the University of Amsterdam), working on "microcontracts".
TelosVM is inspired by a few ideas:
TelosVM has motivated its author's subsequent work on the BitGadaa blockchain governance project.
Similar ideas like TelosVM could be found in other works such as this (2007) and this recent project by Mark Burgess (very interesting, check it out).
