For the good of civilization, the internet as we know it today must and will change into something better than what web 2.0 has given us. Web 2.0, just like oil and gas, is not sustainable and if we do not change course, civilization will collapse in a predictable manner.
Like we must eventually replace oil and gas for sustainable energy, the web must replace “data” as its measurement for financial success or acquisition, but that’s not all. The internet must also change how it monetizes itself and how internet startup companies themselves get funded.
The purpose of Big Mother is therefore to nullify the Big Brother internet, to replace web 2.0 with something better.
This may seem like an impossible task, but it is possible and we can provide a practical pathway to get there in a small but significant area, online journalism, within 18 months. We believe that some sectors, such as mobile web and mobile app can lead to further adoptions, and eventually, it is possible that the entirety of the architecture for the web can change.
We are active in three sectors, the areas of online misinformation and toxicity, the sectors of the attention economy, and most important, the sectors of finance and funding. If such a new internet is to emerge, new funding pathways must exist outside of the current Wall Street, VC and Angel rounds process.
Our approach therefore is holistic.
The mission of Big Mother is an internet that watches out for everybody instead of watching, tracking, and misleading everyone.
We believe that it is possible, based on a few flaws of internet architecture, to actually replace both data and big tech in small but very significant sectors, and we have a roadmap of how to get there.
We’ve already spend seven years and $700,000 in research and development, with Phase 1 deployment ready.
If it is possible to play a “web3 world game”, then we must address the Social Dilemma.
We must address all dynamics of this problem, from Wall Street funding to Silicon Valley standardization, from data marketplaces and media consumption.
Thank you Center for Humane Technology for making this a mainstream conversation.
We welcome skepticism, analysis, and review.
