Meta-Ideas ?

I was copied in on a tweet [1] (chat between Emeka Azuka Okoye and Eghosa Omoigui ) that referenced a Marc Andreessen tweet [2] that itself referenced an article about meta-idea concept [3].

Here’s an example of how one could describe and demonstrate the meta-idea concept using structured data description that’s comprehensible to both a humans and a machines.
