The technology of communications is impressive ... the use of communications potentially destablizing


Amazing progress / Plugboard 1960s / Cloud servers / IoT / 3D printing


Brief background about communications technology deployment in the USA
First, for context, here’s what each wireless generation has enabled since 1G in 1983:
• 1G (deployed in the 1980s): Analog cellular technology, very low bandwidth, designed to enable mobile phone calls
• 2G (deployed in the 1990s): Digital cellular technology, digital voice phone calls, enabled SMS (short messaging service – sending texts)
• 3G (deployed in the 2000s): Widespread use of CDMA (code-division multiple access) technology, high-quality audio for calls, early stages of low-quality video over mobile, and internet access
• 4G (deployed in the 2010s): Significant increase in data bandwidth, enabling internet browsing and streaming of high-quality video, voice-over IP technology (basically, free phone calls anywhere in the world using services like Skype or any kind of messaging application)

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
