Fund-Tank

Create Financial Think-Tank, and Free People To Do What They Love

It's been like what more than a decade since I've registered on Halfbakery. I wanted to work on many ideas. I had many problems in my life during this decade actually, 3 main problems:

1) knowledge acquisition to start projects, 2) financial resource acquisition to realize ideas, 3) freeing the time of my friends whom I love to work on exciting ideas together.

And, there were 3 secondary problems: 4) defining world's goal, 5) crossing the language and cultural barriers, 6) ensuring safe arrival of technological singularity.

Thinking of these problems, I came up with a solution. Namely, public self-explanatory, inter-lingual, financial, programmable, hierarchical think-tank ("fund-tank").

This fund-tank would allow people to work in public, directly, without intermediaries like corporations, directly sharing the capital and cash flows via the comment system that supports transfers of resources. Moreover, this fund-tank would include the structure, which allows to understand how every product was made.

Specifically, I observed that everything that was ever made by people, was driven by people’s work to satisfy their needs, and that everything that was ever constructed, could be broken down to the following decomposition:

Need

____Goal

________Idea

____________Plan

________________Step

____________________Task

________________________Work

Here:

1. Whenever someone wants something, they conceptualize it in terms of some concept, which refers to some asset Y. Need here represents such concept definition.

2. Whenever someone says that they want something, they specify conditions for the assets they refer to, e.g., 0 < Y < 2. Goal here represents such conditions.

3. Whenever someone comes up with an idea to get what they want, they effectively had come up with some principle to influence the world F by some hypothetical actions X, to satisfy the goal’s inequality by equality F(X)=Y. Idea here represents such a solution.

4. Whenever someone comes up with a plan, what they did, is they came up with a concrete set of actions using some technology to realize the hypothetical actions X as ordered set (x1, x2,..., xN). Plan here represents such a decomposition.

5. Whenever someone comes up with a milestone xM, what they did, is they had just set out to take some amount of resources and convert into some highly likely corresponding deliverable yM. Step here represents such an assumption.

6. Whenever someone comes up with a task in a milestone, what they just did, is set out to do some concrete action Z to approach yM. Task here represents such a prototype of action.

7. Whenever someone actually tries to do some work to get a task done, what they just did, is produced an attempt z’ for the task. Work here represents such a task attempt.

If we simply have content types for each of these categories, and link them up, people can publicly see the decompositions explaining how making of anything was a piece of math to solve F(X)=Y, and most people can understand how most of the things are/were made.

It will solve problem 1).

To solve the problem 2), have programmable transaction generators inside comments.

To solve the problem 3), make the platform completely transparent like Halfbakery, without the possibility to have hidden groups inside.

To solve the problem 4), do analysis based on the elements of the top level of the hierarchy -- Goals, once data becomes available.

To solve the problem 5), allow people to choose the language of their input when their are posting content.

To solve the problem 6), ... hope that we are better off when people's plans are in public.

So... and thing is, I've just instantiated this idea as a project! (see link)

       [bigsleep], well that's probably the hardest one. Hope w can make it.

       The idea is rather hard to parse, but isn't this what venture capital is?   

       Someone has a problem, and an idea to solve that problem. If they can convince others that the solution is sufficiently valuable to the rest of the world (a business plan) they are given money to develop that idea.

       Would an idea to cure all forms of cancer, all retroviral infections, all inherited disorders and all diseases for which protective alleles are known count?

       [MaxwellBuchanan], an idea that   

       // cure all forms of cancer, all retroviral infections, all inherited disorders and all diseases for which protective alleles are known //   

       Does count. Currently, in Infinity Project, you can choose an a number of problems that idea addresses, because we have ManyToMany field exactly for that -- big ideas that can address many problems at once.   

       And... I'm sure the world would glad to see child projects of such an idea.

       Hi all, my first comment here.   

       // Someone has a problem, and an idea to solve that problem. If they can convince others that the solution is sufficiently valuable to the rest of the world (a business plan) they are given money to develop that idea. //   

       [MechE ], currently we don't have *any* open and transparent platform, which don't depend on physical location for peer to peer resources exchange. By resources I mean knowledge, skills and money contribution.
