CREATE YOUR SPACE

Background

Data is not useful by itself, it needs compute power to process it in order to create value.

Information Asset = Compute + Data

Currently DATA is given to those with COMPUTE power, so the resulting value (information asset) belongs belongs to Cloud.

88.io gives COMPUTE power to those with DATA, so the resulting value (information asset) belongs to you.

Import Compute instead of Export Data

private_cyberspace

The Cloud (crowd-Sourced computing) takes data from you to create value for THEMSELVES. Your own Private Cyberspace (crowd-Owned computing) enables you to retain your data and create value for YOURSELF.

Your Private Cyberspace gives you control of both the applications and the infrastructures that process your data - your data now become your Information Assets.

1. Instant Benefits

You can create your own private cyberspace to store your information assets with just ONE CLICK, independent of your wealth and skill levels.

incubation

After clicking 88.io, you will be redirected to a list of ready-made private cyberspaces to select one that best meet your requirements. These different Seed Cyberspaces are preloaded with applications and infrastructures by Cyberspace Incubators to ensure a rapid realisation of benefits for different parts of the society.

Initially, only Seed Cyberspaces assembled by contacttrace.com.au are available, but incubators are being set up worldwide so we expect the number of Seed Cyberspaces to increase.

2. Movement Focus

Due to its original design as a Virtual Vaccine to fight COVID and future pandemics, the Seed Cyberspace available from contacttrace.com.au has a focus on collecting Time and Location assets into your private cyberspace.

which , incubators in your country might provide a different experience

You can select an incubator of your choice to provide you with a ready made Private Cyberspace that you can used immediately to built your information assets.

, gaining unique insights into their lives and growing data income for themselves instead of for the cloud.

Better Than Free

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 significant INITIAL BENEFITS to the end users:

  1. 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 ?
  2. The Cloud is EASY to use if your follow their rules BUT have you tried changing their operation ? Complaining is not so easy ?
  3. The Cloud is CHEAP when you start BUT what about after you are hooked ? The premium versions are not so cheap ?

cloud_citizen_benefits1

Something that needs to be FASTER, EASIER and CHEAPER than the Cloud but WITHOUT manipulating the users' world view NOR selling users' data.

It needs to offer benefits that are not possible under Cloud Computing, like substantially providing the users with:

Information Asset   Ownership Advantages
1. More Insight   2. More Income
3. More Independence     4. More Innovation
5. More Productivity   6. More Security

The trillion dollar question is HOW ?

Decentralising Computing

The obvious solution to the problems with Centralisation of computing in the Cloud is its Decentralisation, a similar process happened about half a century ago.

decentralisation5

In the 1970s Personal Computer
distributes the centralised computing power of the Mainframe to the masses.

In the 2020s Citizen Computing
distributes the centralised computing power of the Cloud to the masses.

In the 1970s there was NO computing power at home because there was no computing infrastructure there, so pushing out computer hardware is a great step in decentralisation.

In the 2020s there are plenty computing infrastructure at home (e.g. phones, laptops, wifi, broadband etc.) but still NO computing power, those home computing infrastructure are just dumb interfaces to the REAL computing power in the Cloud.

Now computing infrastructure is no longer scarce, what is scarce is the CONTROL of those computing infrastructure.

With exponential explosion of information in the past decades, the Cloud Infrastructure provides end users with a cheap and easy way of interacting with the increasing amount of information around the world BUT by doing so the Cloud also controls the world's information.

explosion2

With numerous massive data centres around the world, there is NO WAY for citizen Computing to match the scale of the economies of the Cloud using traditional infrastructure.

But what if we turn the traditional control flow UPSIDE DOWN ?

upside_down3

Instead of having to support thousands, the "upside down" citizen infrastructure only has to support one.

For each application and each user, there is an application-specific user-driven infrastructure which is highly diverse, globally distributed, fully encrypted and self-heals.

By leveraging off each other's infrastructure, citizen computing users have access to a wide range of infrastructure to suit their specific needs - pick a site in the neighbourhood for low latency daily use, pick a site in another city for disaster recovery.

Unlike Cloud data centres with thousands computers inside, there is no special cooling, no security guard, no redundant power, no fibre loops required.

Separate Cyberspaces

The principle of Separation of Powers is important in the functioning of a government, the same principle is used in handling information assets.

Concentration of data means concentration of power, there is actually NO need to create massive concentrate data in most cases. 5 friends sharing photos between themselves do NOT need to share them on a Cloud platform with 500 million other users and a lawyer should NOT share a file with a client on a Cloud platform with 20 million other files.

Instead of all data processed by one infrastructure, different data need to be processed by separate infrastructures that are appropriate for them.

In Citizen Synergy Computing the principle of separation of powers is enforced by handling information assets in three separate CYBERSPACES, each with independent infrastructures.

  1. Private Cyberspace handles the most private and complete data of the owners.
  2. Community Cyberspace processes owner released data strictly according to agreed templates between all related parties.
  3. Uncontrolled Cyberspace is where owner's information is out of the owner's control.

information_space_white6 (2)

An Citizen Synergy project that operates across all 3 cyberspaces is the Citizen Assisted Contact Tracing https://contacttrace.com.au:

virtualvaccine

Private Cyberspace - Citizen Assisted Contact Tracing's Personal Map
Community Cyberspace - Citizen Assisted Contact Tracing's Fiduciary Exchange
Uncontrolled Cyberspace - Citizen Assisted Contact Tracing's Community Map

Private Cyberspace complements instead of replaces Cloud Computing, it simply move information assets to places where it makes sense, enabling the user to control how much data to release into each cyberspace for how much return.

crowdcloud

The incumbent power of the Cloud Computing can be leveraged nicely in the Community Zone, where user private data in the Personal Zone can be processed in the Fiduciary Zone before releasing to members of different communities in the Cloud.

Crowd-Sourced vs Crowd-Owned

With Cloud Computing (Crowd-SOURCED data), your information assets are being transferred to the Cloud everyday to become THEIR assets.

With Private Cyberspace (Crowd-OWNED data), you build up your OWN information assets (instead of building up the Cloud's information assets).

Currently, you are ALREADY exposing every aspect of your life to the Cloud for the Cloud's benefit, all citizen Computing does is to enable you to use those SAME data for your own benefit.

Regaining control of your information and reclaiming its ownership, means IMPROVEMENTS in many critical areas:

Information Asset   Ownership Advantages
1. More Insight   2. More Income
3. More Independence     4. More Innovation
5. More Productivity   6. More Security

Create Private Cyberspace

You can create your first Private Cyberspace instantly by CLICK HERE to load the 88.io web console onto your mobile phone.

  1. Your mobile phone now becomes the first piece of infrastructure in your brand new private cyberspace.
  2. Your first anonymous alias has now been created in your private cyberspace so you can use it to start collecting data around you.

By default there is NO sharing of data, your alias is for data Collection only, allowing you to build up your information asset privately for your own personal use.

4. Use Citizen Synergy

You can multiply the benefits of your Private Cyberspace by sharing information assets within it.

A citizen energised information ecosystem is massive a computing paradigm shift, with so many brains (humans and machines) working together, every application is a game changer.

5. 88.io

Private Cyberspace of one of two types of computing grids in the 88.io ecosystem.

88io

Currently 88.io private cyberspaces come with at least 3 applications:

  1. virtualvaccine.me
  2. geopos.org
  3. citizentimeline.com

Your mobile phone is the first device you add into your private cyberspace, as your information asset build, you can add extra devices e.g. your laptop into your private cyberspace.
