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