Disposable Node removes the SKILL barrier to data ownership, encouraging innovation by enabling everyone (from billionaires to refugees) to assemble their own compute infrastructure easily by mixing and matching disposable computing nodes (like TOY BRICKS) without technical knowledge.
Disposable Node and Personal Console form the two halves of a Private Cyberspace.
Disposable Node provides the backend computing power (e.g. when the required processing resources exceed what's available on a mobile phone or when the information is more securely processed away from the mobile phone), while the Personal Console provides the frontend user interface.
A Disposable Node can be created with just ONE COMMAND on most computers.
It can share existing computers (from home computers to remote virtual machines) with other applications as well as run on dedicated computers (from tiny Raspberry Pis to massive IBM Mainframes) by themselves.
Most old computers manufactured within the past 10 years (even laptops with damaged screens and keyboards) can be used.
Disposable Nodes are basic building blocks of the Private Cyberspace that can be used to deploy an unlimited range of processing, networking and storage systems. Disposable Nodes cover the whole digital environment, from the version of the software being used to the size of the storage on a computer, from the room the computer is in to the name of the person walking in to do repairs.
Each Disposable Node provides a set of application specific computing functions by wrapping relevant software and hardware into independently deployable computing bundles that work synergistically together with each other.
It hides the complexity of operating large scale computing resources behind a simple computing abstraction, allowing those resources to collaborate and be shared quickly and safely between members of a community.
Ironically they create highly reliable systems by being easily disposable themselves.
