Data is your most important asset – knowing or disclosing just ONE extra piece of data could change your life. Yet currently most of your data is stored remotely on Cloud Platforms, controlled and processed by parties that have DIFFERENT interests and aspirations to you.
The word “Cloud” is just a marketing term that can mean whatever the person trying to sell something wants it to mean, as articulated by Larry Ellison below.
Here we will define Cloud Platforms (the "Cloud") as cyberspace services that take advantage of you.
They control your behaviours and use your resources (e.g. Google using your data and Apple using your device without permission nor compensation in order to make money for themselves), building up their assets at your expense, increasing THEIR power and value while reducing YOURS.
Private Cyberspace is about giving non-technical owners EASY CONTROL of their applications.
Not everyone knows how to cook, but we all know what tastes good. If food taste bad, change the cook instead of going into the kitchen.
The same applies to the private cyberspace application.
All applications inside your Private Cyberspace are under your full control of you only (no one else).
Owners interact with each other through their own private cyberspaces under their own rules without an cloud limitation.
personal application space under the exclusive control of the owner.
There are millions of free and open source applications (many resell by the cloud to you),
all your needs, wants and dreams
Compute Equity gives you ownership of a personal piece of the online world (through private cyberspace applications), so you can see more, earn more and do more in the physical world under your own terms by working directly with other private cyberspaces (through citizen synergy infrastructure) without depending on cloud platforms..
instead of sending your data into the Cloud, you process data yourself in your Private Cyberspace.
by transferring the control of your data and resulting benefits from Cloud Platforms back to you.
empower individuals to effect real world effects by giving them full control and all benefits from their data:
- establish Application Ownership
- build Community Infrastructure
, without relying on hegemonic Cloud Platforms, no matter their wealth or knowledge levels.
Information Effects enables you to effect changes in the analog world by owning a piece if the digital world.
Cloud Computing has been lim
The opportunity for individuals to change the world at scale has been limited,
With almost everyone on earth being fed a diet of FREE services by Cloud Computing for so many years, it would be difficult to move people away from the Cloud, unless there is something that is BETTER THAN FREE.
The increasing transfer of the world's information assets (and thus power) from so MANY to so FEW is occurring because the Cloud does bring some benefits to the end users in order to suck them in:
- The Cloud is FAST to join and submit your data into BUT have you tried leaving or taking your data out ? Deleting your data is not so fast ?
- The Cloud is EASY to use if your follow their rules BUT have you had problems with their operation ? Complaining is not so easy ?
- The Cloud is CHEAP when you start BUT what about after you are hooked ? The premium versions are not so cheap ?
Private Cyberspace does not just deliver compute faster, easier and cheaper than Cloud Platform, it totally transforms how compute is being performed.
Instead of PASSIVELY living in a digital environment determined by the Cloud, now you can ACTIVELY shape your own Private Cyberspace.
- See Clearly - beyond cloud's ranking and recommendation algorithms.
- Think Deeply - without being interrupted by cloud notifications and advertisements.
- Interact Privately - without cloud monitoring your activity and selling your data.
- Act Freely - without following cloud's interests and rules.
Private Cyberspace adds new dimensions to your digital life that are NEVER possible if your live in the Cloud:
- Data that were too private for the cloud can now be analysed by you.
- Automations that were not profitable for the cloud can now be deployed by you.
- Control that was given away to the cloud can now be retained by you.
- Interruptions from cloud notifications and advertisements can now be stopped.
- Views clouded by commercial rankings and recommendations can now be cleared.
- Activities in the interest of users instead of cloud can now be performed.
- Income from processing and data that were captured by the cloud can now be received.
Private Cyberspace has More Than 40 Advantages over Cloud Platforms.
The massive injection of compute power into the whole population improves every aspect of modern life from personal dignity (how you value yourself and how others value you) to national security (wars are won by the industries at the back as much as on the battlefields at the front).
Scam Cloud e.g. Bitcoin, Ethereum etc. is a type of Centralised Cloud that pretend to be decentralised when in fact they are not - it still controls you and let others control you like a centralised cloud.
Corporate Cloud e.g. Paypal, Resmed etc. is a type of Centralised Cloud that operates at a smaller scale.They are exploitive businesses that share your data or lock up your data, just like bigger centralised clouds.
Not Cloud e.g. Vultr, OVH etc. is a business that uses the word "Cloud" in its marketing but it is NOT really a Cloud Platform. It provides non-application specific compute hosting services WITHOUT processing your data for you.
