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.

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

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.

 

 

 

Tft (Threefold Token) is a hopeful tool


In a previous post I mentioned that I wouldn’t have been connected to initiatives like Threefold Foundation if I haven’t read the book of Bernard Lietaer during the days the internet got introduced in the business world. Listen to a talk of Bernard Lietaer here.

Time will tell if Tft (Threefold Token) will get its place in the sweet spot of money systems, the sweet spot between diversity – and sustainable money systems (window of viability – scenario (A) of picture below).

The technology of Threefold Foundation is open source, the creation of more complementary currencies thanks to the technology of Threefold Foundation is an option (scenario (C)). I am hopeful and therefore proud ambassador and farmer. It seems that we are acting to avoid a colapse (scenario (B)).

It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it. ― Oscar Wilde

The Threefold grid is becoming available thanks to farmers. At this moment some tokens of farmers within the eco-system are for sale. You want some in your wallet ? You want to become a Threefold tokenholder ? Check out the Threefold website or contact me for some support.

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).
You want some training first ? Contact me and let’s find out what would work for you.

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)

Threefold at Weconomics Partnerday


Threefold Foundations opens up a software stack for responsible internet, an innovation space for organizational technology.

Weconomics focuses primarily on the use of organizational technology to improve the 6Ps:

  • Purpose: the purpose of work in relation to innovation
  • Productivity: pay prosperity with productivity
  • Privacy: new and strict European privacy legislation (GDPR)
  • Power: more power to people, less to means such as companies & governments
  • Propaganda: fewer fake news and news manipulation
  • Processes: improve processes and transfer them to transaction networks

During Weconomics Partnerday 12-10-2018 a dialogue started regarding mutual opportunities between Weconomics and Threefold. Get an impression of Weconomics Partner day. We keep you posted if value propositions for collaboration will follow.

Chris Hoerée has written an article on the topic of dialogue. And together with Claudius van Wyck she facilitates with great results. Contact Chris if you want to accelerate your dialogue process and start to co-design.
