the crowd

the crowd
the crowd, people;
the crowd, people connected; 
the crowd, humanity’s beating heart;
the crowd, core of the internet of everything;
the crowd, evolutionary specie;
the crowd, real power.

the crowd year 02015:
people, around seven billion;
people connected, less than three billion intermittently;
humanity’s beating heart, young and strengthening;
core of internet of everything, ~ sixteen billion connections;
evolutionary specie, not yet self-aware;
real power, emerging.

the crowd year 02025:
people, around eight billion;
people connected, everyone, all eight billion continuously;
humanity’s beating heart, maturing and strong;
core of internet of everything, ~ one trillion connections;
evolutionary specie, self-aware;
real power, the crowd.

paradise: young man, early 80’s,
Copacabana beach by day, sin city by night,
and again, and again, and again…

refuge: young man, early 80’s,
conversation and prose, absence of debauchery,
pints and English, anecdote and debate,
Ipanema, Lord Jim’s Pub, pints and…

‘Excuse me, do you have the time’,
a voice sweet and sublime,
without timepiece, eyes to table drift,
six arms, three watches, eyes to voice lift…

two decades, without blood above neck,
an awakening, where is the one, the one once thought met,
a girl from Ipanema, modest, happy and free,
to princess of london, money, money and me…

refuge: seasoned man, mid 20’teens,
future thought and prose,
humanity thought and stories,
future of humanity thought and poetic license.

refuge: prose, stories and poetic license.

The question of everything

2025: disrupt 2 thrive

The question of everything

A contemplation on the need to write new rules to be able to change the world for the better led to a contemplation on writing new math and whether there really is a difference between writing new rules and new math.

Writing new math to solve astrophysics conundrums is commonplace to the likes of Dr. Lawrence Krauss, Dr. Neil Tyson, Dr. Radek Zalenka and Dr. Rodney Mackay.

New math then:

1     big hairy assed grand challenge for humanity

+ 1     exponential technology toolbox

+ 1     percent of GDP

= 3     = phase 1: empowered crowd in 2025 ready for phase 2 to 2050 and beyond

+ 1      percent of GDP

= 4     = phase 2: done deal, pretty much everything is happening

…4                   2

…42

…42

Col Shepherd and The Stargate Atlantis team were right all along:

 The answer to the question of everything really is 42.

 

So anyway, a bit of new roughneck math

Crowd Power (A bit of roughneck philosophy)

Crowd Power (A little roughneck philosophy)

The crowd is made up of us, almost 3 billion humans interactively connected, to varying degrees by the internet and smartphone cell coverage. Many of us, though by no means all, are using the power of the connected crowd mostly for self interest and triviality. Together with nearly 13 billion sensors and tech tools from home alarms to rhino protecting drones we form the Internet of everything (IoE).

Over the course of the next five years to ~2020, the crowd will double to about six billion people connected by and to the IoE, ~50 billion people, sensors, tech tools and toys.

As smartphones, the IoE and their successors become ubiquitous, by 2025, ~8 billion people will be hyper-connected at speeds of at least 1Mbps. Around 5 billion new crowd members, almost 200% growth in a decade. Powerful, very powerful!

These new crowd members, ~80-90% impoverished, will likely join the crowd motivated differently than the first couple of billion. Many will experience growth in access to knowledge and information at an exponential pace while living without basic human necessities and dignity.

Unprecedented awareness of the very latest in interests, innovation and exponential technology will come with equal awareness of the distant abundance of the few.

If this awareness is not supported with benevolent leadership, substance and practical assistance, as this emerging evolutionary entity matures, becomes self aware and powerful, its personality is likely to emulate that of its mentorship or worse. Much worse.

Vision2025 is about: ‘an 8 billion strong hyper-connected, hyper-cooperative, hyper-productive crowd of humane personality working to build and do amazing things and experiences with increasingly amazing technologies and growing abundance’.

Conclusion:

If the crowd is not on board and in on it well before 2025, the future may not be so bright. The harder road to the future.

Humanity needs to scale the democratization and demonetization of the fruits of its labors and disruptive exponential technologies. The easier road to the future.

Space currents

Space currents

Techno-future once a dream;
Humanity now, just years short of superman.

Nano precision synthetic bionics;
Augmented hyper-connected mind;
Better than before. Way better. Superman.

Chimps circa 98dna, simple object recognition;
Humans circa 99dna, hubble telescopes and pluto mission;
Superman circa 100dna, stealing fire.

Knock, knock….knock, knock,
reputation by association, absence of evidence,
dichotomous message, condescending intonation.

Young superman, young superman,
fair winds….trailing space currents young superman,

young superman, young superman,
no fire for stealing here young superman,

young superman, young superman,
fair winds………….………..trailing space currents……………………………………………………………………………
