Time Registration System


As an HR person – I have implemented a new time registration system to escape classical working patterns. It sounds like a contradictio in terminis. But it isn’t. We’re freeing data of the workers from 1 company. Workers are able to check in by neigbours as well. Because together we shape better jobs.

Don't be busy. Just be productive.

The transactions of this new collaboration will be managed at nearly zero cost. A shared and smart contract enables the payrolling and billing for participating companies.

P.S.: But let me admit something. The cluster of companies I am working for is not so far of the Zimmer Tower (Lier). What is time ? – is questioned at the Zimmer Museum and it is kept unanswered (and I have the answer neither).

The leaders of VIPE / TITO Foundation are beta users on FreeFlowPages.


The leadership of VIPE / TITO Foundation are beta users on FreeflowPages. FreeflowPages runs on Threefold Grid and will become an alternative for Facebook. We started an on-line group to facilitate the exploration of new organising tools, like complementary money systems.

Itsyou.online is used to log in Freeflow Pages. Itsyou.online is connected to your own 3Bot. 3Bot manages your own data and workloads on Threefold grid. 3Bot could make a connection to a digital wallet. The innovation space of complementary money is out there.

What if a job is posted in the group and someone commit him/herself to get the job done ? What if that person will get Freeflow tokens in exchange for the time he/she spend ? Will these exchanges support the purpose and mission of VIPE/ TITO ?

We’re going to reflect on these questions. Drop a line to lieve.vereycken@co-inpetto.org if you want to join us in the VIPE/TITO group on FreeflowPages. You’re welcome to explore and learn with us.

You never change things by fighting against the existing reality. To change something build a newe model that makes the old model obselete.

In Love with Nature’s Internet


In the digital infrastructure of Threefold every single person will get its own 3Bot. With 3Bot – data of a person belongs to a person and it will be easy to exchange. I do believe 3Bot is an important feature to get our society organized, a society where people are in love with themselves and Nature’s Internet.

Love the world as your own self, then you can truly care for all things.

Sign up for DataEthics.eu


It took some years, but Data Ethics is on the agenda.
It won’t disappear. It will be an ongoing topic for the coming decades. And you have to be part of the conversation.

I am wondering which book I would suggest to people who want to be introduced to the topic. Will it be – “The Age of Surveillance Capitalism: The Fight for a Human Future at the New Fronter of Power” by Shoshana Zuboff. ? I started to read it.

In the meanwhile, I suggest you to sign up for the newsletter of ThinkDoTank Dataehtics.eu. Learn more about data ethics and speak up. It matters.

You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.

A world with no ads


Read here – big brands are preparing for a world with no ads. It is music to my ears.
And it is not the first time that I do hear this line of thinking. At PIE 2015 (a congres on personal information economy) Unilever was bringing forward.

By giving people their own data, the innovation space for more conscious business is opening up.
The sooner or later we will:
– manage our own personal data;
– claim transprancy in the production chains;
– spend money more consioucly;
– do our task in the circular process of products we are using.

All brands and every single person will join the sustainable business movement. That’s what I believe we are going to accomplish the coming decades. Do you ?

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the more intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.

Get the knowledge for innovation in your collaboration


Good design is partially creativity an innovation, but primarily knowledge and awareness.

Chuck Green

Blockchain is about process innovation in collaboration.
Do you feel that your (potential) stakeholders are grasping the concepts of the blockchain technology ?
Consider to join or co-design a blockchain simulation workshop with Jeroen Perquin (www.blockchain-simulation.nl). I have experienced it as effectieve, fun and insightful.

Who gets what and why ?


Opportunity for market design knocks. Alvin Roth has written a book about it with the title: Who gets what and why, the hidden world of matchmaking and market Design.

My 10 take-aways of the book are:

  1. Markets are human artifcasts. We can change a market and we can invent one.
  2. Market Design is a Team Sport.
  3. Market design helps solve problems that existing marketplaces haven’t been able to solve naturally.
  4. Design is a noun as well as a verb; even markets whose rules have evolved slowly have a design, although no one may have consciously designed them.
  5. Internet marketplaces have very precise rules, because when a market is on the web, its rules have to be formalized in software.
  6. When we speak about free market, we shouldn’t be thinking of a free-for-all, but rather a market with well designed rules that make it work well.
  7. One thing we’ll see is that the “magic” of the market doesn’t happen by magic: many marketsplaces fail to work well because of poor design. They may fail to make the market thick or safe, or to deal with congestion, and so there’s an opportunity to help them work better.
  8. Succesful designs depend greatly on the details of the market, including the culture and psychology of the participants.
  9. Markets can be dramatically improved when their design encourages people to communicate essential information they might otherwise have kept to themselves.
  10. In matching markets you have to choose and have to be choosen.

A jobmarket is (like most markets) a matching market, a market where you have to be choosen. Get your organisational pupose clear. It matters.

Congratulations, You Have The Job ! – (the beauty of a well designed consensus mechanism)


I’ve taken up a teaching assignment: explain Blockchain for 18 year old youngsters. I loved to do it. By getting back to the basics I found the key to explain the beauty of blockchain as simple as possible. Satoshi Nakamoto solved issues of the Byzantine Generals’ Problem and proofed that consensus between parties can be supported by a computional network.

On my way home I start realizing that one of my first employers was inspired by the meaning of the word consenus and has choosen Konsensus as its company name. Konsensus was a recruitment cabinet for financial positions. We earned private data and missions – day after day. Agreements between employers and candidates were crafted with care and professionalism – day after day.

A craftmanship that is disrupted by the first generation of digitized business models. Data became available for gambling in the matching business – everywhere. No permissions seemed to be needed – despite data laws. The poor-data-speedy-matching-bubble-gambling-game is a dead end game. It has led to a bad functioning market. It is a dead end game.

Too much stories behind data are lost and not valued. We can do far better. As said in previous post – I do believe HR is a valuable place to be thanks to the potential of blockchain organising.

We’ve learned that we’ve allowed technological capabilities to dictate policies and practices, rather than ensuring that our laws and values guide our technological capabilities. –Edward Snowden

 

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.

Threefold for IoT (Internet of Things) in New Business Models


The picture below is the picture of the Weconomy model of prof. dr. Jan Jonker. The internet of things (IoT) could support it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Will Solaridad lead by example ?

An agreement between Threefold Foundation and Solaridad is signed at the pre-launch Threefold Conference in Ibiza ( from 23 to 25 Octobre 2018). Following building blocks are getting available for innovation (probably Q1 of 2019):

  • Digital Wallets
  • Digital Identities
  • Grid for storage and compute capacity
  • Blockchain Rivine technology – with special attention for the blockchain dilemma.

The technology of Threefold is open source and it is getting available for every project. I look forward to practice and share stories. Stories on new business models facilitated by Threefold Technology.

Design with People and Nature first as the potential solution and then add Tech as a potential enabler (not the other way around) – unknown.

I have had the pleasure to contribute to the book New Business Models together with prof. dr. Jan Jonker. A more recent publication on Organising for the Circular Economy can be downloaded here for free.
