Real Time OpenWorld Ecosystem Action Plan Updates (2018):
OpenWorld Action Plan (2018)
Elements of Proposed OpenWorld Ecosystem
SolutionCenters/SolutionCentres @OpenWorld is in live Alpha Phase development, seeking crowdsourced input for a new breed of lightly algorithmically-policed, 100% opted-in organic reach, Open Source professional networking, publishing, collaboration, communication, community management, Expert Q&A Forums and content-sharing concept. The introductory SC @OW Action Plan Pages [OpenWorld Action Plan (2018)] are being modified as you read, to incorporate a detailed mission statement and a fuller explanation of planned structure and planned future actions.
In the meantime, please feel free to tender your thoughts, reactions, ideas, observations, hopes and aspirations for SolutionCenters/SolutionCentres @OpenWorld.
OSolutionCenters/SolutionCentres @OpenWorld (SC @OW) Open Source Collaborative Professional Networking embodies a concept whose time has come.
SC @OW is dedicated to enabling and supporting 100% organic online networking, transparent operation, and collaborative development and management.
SC @OW speaks to those who are weary of having their networking efforts cancelled out by arbitrary algorithmic controls shaped by undisclosed commercial objectives.
SC @OW does not seek to compete with, poach members from, encroach on the core markets of or mirror the specialist niches of any other social media platforms, whether professional or social. SC @OW is, instead, establishing widely-distributed SC @OW Portals/Gateways, enabling passageways for content native to any other platform to be shared and distributed via SC @OW’s own developing broad-based networks, in full compliance with each platform's content-sharing policies. There is no need now whatsoever, nor would there ever be, to stop using other platforms in order to become an SC @OW (registered*) member or (unregistered*) user of SC @OW services and platforms. Indeed SC @OW members* and users* would undoubtedly benefit from a richer and more productive overall Social Media experience, by maintaining their use of other platforms in conjunction with SC @OW, just as Google Search and Wikipedia coexist in perfect harmony, each efficiently and effectively leveraging the distinctness of the other, to the benefit of users of both services.
SC @OW members and users will be able to share posts created on other platforms, on their own blog or websites into SC @OW's networks, where distribution will be controlled by the personal selections of SC @OW members* and users* in a loose, autonomous confederation of independent blogs, websites and eCommerce operations all indexed for search within the SC @OW ecosystem.
SC @OW is structured as a group of autonomous International Nodes (serving National Nodes), National Nodes (serving National Local Enterprise Centre [LEC] Networks), National LEC Networks (serving LECs) and individual LECs (serving local cities, towns and communities). All elements will be directly connected to one another and capable of independent operation as well as delivering user traffic, information and services to one another, directly or via the SC @OW Global Interchange (SC @OWGI) at SC @OW Central (SC @OWC), All elements will also access common, network-wide SC @OW resources administered and updated centrally. SC @OW Nodes serve as communications pathways for SC @OW members* and users*, who can interact, connect, liaise, collaborate or contract business with one another across the platform, via SC @OW Networks or via the OWGI.
Each SC @OW LEC is effectively a networking space for authorised private, for-profit providers of appropriate goods and consulting and other expert services and the potential consumers of such goods and services.
Each LEC will, in turn, operate according the linguistic parameters, markets, customs and traditions applicable to its local demographic and mix of business needs, structured in accordance with the specific needs and interests of the markets of its relevant parent Regional or National Node Network. Thus, one LEC is likely to differ from another LEC in nature, internal structure and menu of services. However, each LEC will be designed to remain accessible and relevant to local SC @OW members* and users* seeking pathways into the OW ecosystem.
Unlike traditional multi-site enterprises, it is the outposts distributed in among SC @OW's interacting networks of Local, National and Regional Networks of Nodes that will serve to inform, shape and determine the form, function and features offered by SC @OWGI at the center. In conventional multi-site operations or typical multinational enterprise, the outposts typically feed, serve and are controlled by the center. Not so, with SC @OW, where SC @OWGI at the center exists purely to facilitate service of the needs of members* and users* in interacting Local, National and Regional SC @OW Networks.
The SC @OWGI will become home to SC @OW’s Digital Content Distribution (DCD) Network. However, SC @OW members* and users* will be under no obligation to publish content on any existing or future native SC @OW publishing platforms. For independent publishers, SC @OW will readily share content created on other platforms via its own network, to SC @OW members* and users*, according to their respective preferences.
SC @OWGI will serve as an aggregator for RSS or similar content feeds, together and distribute notices and links to members* and users*, again, according to the preferences set respectively by each recipient.
In addition, SC @OWGI will also host internationally-accessible industry-specific, industry sector-specific and market segment-specific professional groups, owned and managed by SC @OW members*. SC @OW groups will be equipped with all the community management tools necessary to effectively grow and manage them in accordance with each respective group’s statement of mission and rules.
SC @OW will also host Help-U-FiXiT @OpenWorld Specialist Q&A Forums at Regional, National and Local levels, attended by resident, tried and tested Subject Matter Specialists, with specialisms across an expanding range of niches, disciplines and areas of extertise.
SC @OW Central (SC @OWC) is a non-profit organization. It is being developed and launched collaboratively by an international group of dedicated and expert Anchor Stakeholders.
SC @OW will not monetize member data or information, neither by selling them, nor by selling access to them or by selling lead generation services or lists. Since SC @OW's membership* and userbase* data will never be monetized, there will not be a need to restrict access to the a rich array of core freemium services, nor to game members* and users* to keep them logged in to the SC @OW platform or plugged into the SC @OW Ecosystem. Therefore, links to external sites and platforms of value to SC @OW members* and users* will be collated and incorporated in SC @OW's portfolio of services and their use encouraged in, spirit of open platform-to-platform collaboration.
