Like other major human innovations, such as the printing press and the Industrial Revolution, the Web has changed us for good, but its fullest potential has yet to be fulfilled.
Disturbing trends like ‘fake news’, trolling and breaches of cyber security have taken us down a disturbing path.
We imagine the possibility of a world where the internet nourishes the best aspects of human beings and their creativity.
That is why OurNet, and with your help we’ll make it what, in our hearts, we all want it to be.
OurNet is signposting a new way forward for the Internet as concerns grow about its corporatisation, de-humanisation and centralisation.
OurNet will be a ‘virtual village’ that works for all, not just for some – a new context and culture that re-humanises, refines and rewards the best of what we can be.
Turbocharged by the technology of the Internet – bringing the values, relationships and community spirit found in traditional villages to a disconnected and disparate world.
Users will be able to choose their own ‘village’, tuned to their interests, location and responsibilities, or visit other ‘villages’ all over the world to share, chat, collaborate and entertain each other - developing real communities that thrive.
OurNet will be a focal point or virtual community centre, hosting news, events and a marketplace, animated by instant messaging and forum facilities.
Whilst these are not unique features, the context and environment in which they take place will be. For example, current preoccupations around ‘fake news’ and the pursuit of TRUTH will give way to the community-based generation of TRUST.
Communities of every kind will be encouraged to use OurNet - uncensored, yet regulated by ‘peer refinement’. Transparency and authenticity will transform the way we communicate, and sharing which brings the greatest good will meet with the greatest reward and elevation.
From the smallest special interest group to the largest political constituencies, the benefits of a re-humanised, truly-democratised and de-centralised Internet are just a change of perception.
OurNet’s next step is to fund and enlarge a team to make this vision a reality.
Already, people are stepping forward to contribute and make a difference. They see the possibility of communicating and collaborating differently, for a better world.
We are exploring crowd-funding and ultimately an ICO (Initial Coin Offering) that will establish OurBits as a meaningful and significant currency, infused with the ethics of our community and its positive intentions.
Striking a creative balance between leadership and collaboration, OurNet’s team will be vision-driven, working beyond traditional models of work, jobs and remuneration.
Ultimately distributed globally as a multidisciplinary team, great emphasis will be placed on a nourishing organisational culture with a supportive team spirit.
Great results from open hearts and minds are anticipated, in an open-space environment that regularly checks in with personal and organisational integrity.
