Happy New Grid


In 2018 Threefold Foundation took the world by surprise by involving hundreds of people into launching a decentralized internet grid of internet capacity and storage, to everyone by everyone. In 2019, the ThreeFold Grid will be commercially available. This means that anyone will be able to reserve capacity from any independent TF farmer around the world, creating greater inclusion for a new digital economy.

Get involved with your use case when your time is right. Different innovations in technology will be announced along the way.  Innovations which could be useful to scale your dreams and projects.

Happy 2019 and let’s keep in touch.
Change for good is in the air.

When the window op opportunity appears, don’t pull down the shades

In 2018 we’ve welcomed EU GDPR law. Privacy as a right is first mentioned in article 12 of the Universal Declarartion of Human rights. Privacy is the right that that enables our creativity, freedom and responsibility. Let’s embrace it. Don’t take freedom for granted, don’t waste it. Let’s dream the best possible dreams for a digital society and start co-designing it.

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.—Eleanor Roosevelt.

Threefold Technology is getting ready to launch (probably for the end of January 2019).  It brings along a solution for the  blockchain dilemma. Potential co-designers are getting trained by Weconomics Foundation.

Being both entrepreneurial and social is no longer an oxymoron, but rather a tautology. – Jeremy Rifkin

This is Marketing


We are entering a new phase in the innovation space to co-design for better prosperity. Weconomics Foundations is training organisational designers and Threefold Foundation is launching the renewed digital infrastructure and complementary money systems.

Let’s connect further.
Better prosperity for all is possible.

Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do. – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Software developers, Threefold farmers, business consultants and organisational designers could be getting engaged in uses cases from 2019 on. I will do an effort get the word spread. Because I do believe people do prefer work that matters.

I have read Permission Marketing of Seth Godin in the beginning of Co:Inpetto and I will read his new book ‘This is Marketing’ to learn, apply and contribute to the next leap. Listen to his podcast – This is Marketing. Click on the cover of the book to get more information about it.

HR is at the edge of every organisation (a valuable place to be)


HR is a function on the edge of any organisation. HR connects talent from the in- and outside world to organisational tasks. They are in contact with serveral operational service providers like pay-rolling. They are at the cross road of data exchange between organisations (with the individual as smallest part).

Thanks to the innovation space of a well governance shared digital infrastructure, HR is in the position to design and manage careers in a far better ways. Ways that favors the well being of the indivual and the productivity of organisations.

Paul Bessems (founder of www.weconomics.org) invites HR professionals to take up a role for transition to sphere 4 (see picture below).

I connected myself to Weconomics Foundations because I want to take the high road to our next level of prosperity. (WARNING: watch out for the earworm if you keep listening to the song that introduced the concept of the high road)

Aral Balkan and the Ethical Design Manifesto


Yes ! The Ethical Design Manifesto is alive. Threefold Foundations has chosen it to express their goals.  Read the the Ethical Design Manifesto of ThreeFold Foundation here. The manifesto is inspired by the work of Aral Balkan, check it out.

Aral Balkan is definitely one of the persons who is pushing organizations towards the next stages of the Design ladder. He is sharing a strong message for years now and he is getting heard. Wow !

It takes time to persuade men to do even what is for their own good. – Thomas Jefferson.

Seth Godin’s Permission Marketing, GDPR and Alignment of Interests


In 1999 I started in the business of recruitment of IT Professionals and business consultants. While setting up the business, I was very inspired by the work of Seth Godin to reach out to potential candidates and clients.

I read Seth Godin’s book on permission marketing and started to apply the proposed principles rigorously towards registered candidates. I can tell, the principles of permission marketing supported high quality connections for important stuff in life ( – like having meaningful work is – ). After years of hard work – 30.000 potential candidates were registered.

But there was a fork in the road for the work that Co:Inpetto was taking up.
The playing field was getting designed for a privacy disaster and imbalance of interests between stakeholders due to dysfunctional business models. While a huge opportunity for much better design was (and still is) also a choice.

Fork in the road ?
Let’s Take The High Road.

It feels good that have read one of my first professional hero’s today. Seth Godin writes about the GDPR and the marketers dilemma. Read his blog here. In the podcast included Seth Godin talks about media, our culture, aligning interests and our responsibility to create the culture we want. It feels like coming home.

Thanks to initiatives like Threefold Foundation and Weconomics Foundations, everybody is able to have impact. We share how. Step in when your opportunity and values could be aligned and leveraged.

OnzeStadApp.be


Some years ago I’ve written a little story about my intention about  my life, my hometown and my data >>>. I had the intention to get connected my favourite shops, services and brands to the appropriate digital services to serve my own prosperity and the prosperity of my neighbourhood where I am living it.

Therefore I am asking local shops and governments to get connected to
www.onzestadapp.be. It keeps our data and prosperity local, while connecting for more becomes possible thanks to the openness of the technology.

The network is expanding.

Contact Mobicage to get your community, business or local government connected.

I Am A Proud Threefold Ambassador


Threefold Foundation asked me why I wanted to be an ambassador for the foundation and here is my answer.

“Thanks to ThreeFold Foundation robust technology comes available in good organisational design. A design that takes in account that humankind strives for prosperity for all.

In 1999, I started my own business in the market of recruitment, the time internet got introduced in the business world. Wicked problems for matching talent to job opportunities were faced. I realised we could do far better by giving back control over personal data to the individual and start redefining business processes and businesses. Therefore I shared, learned and connected myself. I connected myself to initiatives for knowledge sharing, networking and innovation. Because I do believe it is the responsibility and the opportunity of our generation to get the appropriate digital infrastructure available to move to our next level of prosperity.”

We Share


The upcoming web 4.0 infrastructure gives the opportunity to innovate and cooperate with a much higher productivity.

We’ve been pioneering and researching for years now. A long stay at Schumacher College and its “ethos”, incited me to to write business modelling for digital infrastructure and innovation down.
And we share. We share business – and governance models for Web 4.0 components with co-designers. We’ve developed them with 7 design principles for (networked) commons and our values in mind.

The story will unfold by itself. But alertness and decisiveness are required now.

The way the organisation of digital services is set up in these times, will determine the view of a new economy.
