CLOUDCircles are user-driven communities to fund CLOUD's work on the future of the Internet. We're excited to launch this new initiative, and our long-term plan includes allowing users to create their own circles in support of CLOUD's initiatives. To find your circle and support CLOUD, you can visit www.cloudcircles.org. General posts on this initiative can be found here.
The power of CLOUD comes not only from its ability to bring together ME across your various life domains from education to finance to health and beyond but its ability to put you back in the center of a lifelong learning paradigm. As the immunizations white paper at health.cloudinc.org makes clear, ME 1.0 not only empowers control substantial changes in learning but integrates it into a much broader CLOUD.
To address the vexing issues of privacy, security and data and their impact on issues from corporate actions to securities to payment systems and beyond, we must reweave the fabric of the Internet. The Internet is not an electronic courier service, and without physical locations, my identity and data are part of a fabric and not a specific location. Our use of verbs like move, send and log-in are clear indicators of how we are trapped by our current 2-dimensional view of the Internet. CLOUD's evolving contextual markup language provides the framework for this new fabric for finance.
Bringing CLOUD's new language to our interactions with government will unleash the power of meGovernment and not just eGovernment. Current approaches to eGovernment simply substitute blue links on a web page for the old blue pages in the phone book. A language for ME can change this, while simultaneously embedding transparency into the fabric of governance and government globally.
The power of CLOUD comes not only from its ability to bring together ME across your various life domains from health to education to finance and beyond but its ability to put you back in the center of your health decisions. In the midst of the national debate over healthcare, we can not lose sight of the fact that health is about you. ME 1.0 can help both you and the healthcare system achieve that goal.
The ultimate power of CLOUD will be expressed through our creation of CTML (context markup language). As we begin the journey to ME 1.0 and CTML, this section of the CLOUD website will discuss our perspectives on current standards, how CTML differs from these standards, how CTML would interact with these standards, as well as the multidimensional aspects of CTML. From WHO I Am™ to WHAT I Am™ to WHEN I Am™ to WHERE I Am™, the future of the Internet will be wrapped around people.
People are not only at the heart of the Internet but at the heart of any successful organization. CLOUD's vision of an Internet that starts with us means the connections between people, within an organization or beyond, will become dynamic, something our co-founder, Gary Thompson, called a digital fabric in his talk at TEDxAustin.
