Contents

Since the Internet reached critical mass and became an integral part of the local society, the game has changed. Data has become key, and with that, so has content, and at its base level, writing is a hugely powerful tool, but as the Internet has moved towards Web 3.0, so has writing and content.

The world wide web was also seen as a huge expanse of information that anyone could access, but the way in which that information has been consumed has changed over the years. From Web 1.0, through the social stage of the current web 2.0 and now moving towards Web 3.0, the decentralized revolution content is changing.

And, because the content is being consumed differently, it is also essential for writers to move with the times. But, what is positive is that the way in which things are moving is beneficial for writers as they are agents of a decentralized world and because there is a new opportunity to be the first in line.

There are decentralized platforms out there, run on global cryptocurrencies, which allows a writer to know how much they can earn by how much and what quality work they put forward from anywhere in the world.

The evolution of content and writing

One does not need to go back that far to see how far content creation and writing on the Internet has changed. The Internet, very much like Blockchain, took a while to reach critical mass and become something that everything wanted to be a part of.

In the days of Web 1.0, it was a very one-way system. Websites were basically posting boards that were digitally visited by masses of people, these visitors would absorb the information, and that would be the end of the connect.

Writers were expected to dish out information and spew it across the Internet, but anyone could do it with the power to build a blog or website. However, in terms of being lucrative, it was very much like finding a needle in a haystack for these individual writers who would struggle to get their content seen and read.

But, there were then centralized powers that would enlist writers to do their work for them. Major websites and news sites would hire and drain writers for their work and take advantage of the work in a traditional sense. The workers would work and the company would profit.

3 Major Paradigm Shifts in Crypto Space: Bitcoin, Smart Contracts, Social Layer

Web 2.0 and today’s writing environment

The biggest edge that the Internet has gained in the last few years has been the evolution of social media. No longer is it merely a one-way interaction as users and writers now have a chance to interact and air their views.

Content on the Internet is now under constant scrutiny as any person can either comment directly on articles, or in a bigger way, take the articles to social media sites and share the content, as well as their opinions.

It has allowed writers to build their reputation online as pieces of work can go viral and the writers earn a fan base and a following. Now, writers need not even start their own websites, social media sites are open and available for information to be created, spread, and consumed at a much more rapid rate.

However, this has also allowed almost anyone to become a ‘writer’ there is no barrier to entry so the entire space is congested and convoluted. Being a good writer in today’s environment is not enough, a lot of people are losing out because of the flood in this market.

Additionally, the fact that social media platforms are centralized and monitored, means that the likes of Facebook and Twitter can control the content and install a different barrier on what can and cannot be written about.

The new wave

Web 3.0, which is being built on the Blockchain, is a new space in which content is being created and slowly being more consumed. It is a decentralized place that allows writers a lot more freedom of content, but also a lot more opportunities to earn for their work.

Decentralized social networks are starting to establish themselves, such as Steemit, and interestingly, the thirst for content on these networks is huge. There is a demand for content that outweighs the supply as writers slowly start to explore this new wave of content and the Internet.

Web 3.0 is all about decentralized collaborative social networks where rewards for content are fairer and do not depend on a central entity running the platform. These platforms also provide stats on how much one can make and it is clear that the earlier adopters regarding this new content writing are far ahead of the rest and earning the most already.

Being first and making money

To give a little insight into the money-making possibilities of these decentralized platforms, there is a good article about the earning capabilities of writing on the blogging site, Medium.

The writer explains how, just by repurposing his own work on a site like Medium, he has been able to make as much as $100 in 24 hours because of the collaborative and social nature of it. People can donate small amounts of money to articles they think are good, and, because of the way Web 3.0 is going, it is about group collective and crowdfunding.

But, this space is still new, and that is a double-edged sword. There is a huge demand for content and writers, and because of this, it is worth being in early to dominate the space. But, it also takes a bit of experimenting with a bunch of different decentralized social networks to make your content work for you.

Humankind is chasing the dream of immortality
Do you want to live forever? Opinion
Contents

Aliya Prokofieva is founder of the international space company “Galaktika,” space exploration visionary and active public speaker. She writes for U.Today on the cutting edge tech and disruptive projects that may change the life of billions of people.

The means of Makropulos, a pill of longevity, secret knowledge, ancient witchcraft, legends of the Countess Bathory and the cult novel of Brem Stoker, "Highlander", "Immortal", "Lord of the Rings", "Zardoz" and many other films and books tell about, perhaps, the desired phenomenon for mankind - about IMMORTALITY.

Perhaps absolute immortality is pure fiction ... Well then, at least, life could be several times longer than is available today. And, if possible, maximally delay the old age and stay forever young! This eternal desire is now being sought out by specialists from medicine, cosmetology, genetics, biochemistry, biophysics and various figures of the occult sciences. Computer games gave this movement an invaluable idea- spare lives. Spare organs and systems are replaced as they wear out their own.

And it should be as simple as changing the oil and filters in a car. Images of the future are depicted, where the latest technologies and discoveries of scientists will allow to live for hundreds of years, changing the worn parts of the body to new ones, the achievements of nanogenetics will fundamentally change the functioning of DNA and RNA, which will lead to a sharp slowdown in aging and body wear. A new, sparkling world…

Future of State: From Asgardia to AI-Ruled Space Cities

Start with the basics

Let’s start with genetics. Scientists have found out that human chromosomes have their own system responsible for stability. A kind of seat belt for chromosomes, which prevents unwinding and damage to gene chains. This enzyme is called terminal telomerase. There is a hypothesis that the wear of telomerase over the years leads to irreparable gene changes, cells are replicating worse and worse, many defects appear- this is aging. Natural death occurs when a critical mass of "errors" in replication accumulates. And for all this, the terminal telomerase responds. Here it is, the goal of research and study, you simply need to fix this enzyme and life will last as long as it will be uninterruptedly to perform its telomerase function! But is everything so simple? There are hundreds more questions than answers, many laboratories in the world are dealing with this problem, but the solution and implementation is still very far…

Stepping towards prolonging life will help nanotechnology. Not those on which the state corporation spends budgetary billions, but the creation of nanorobot repairers. This topic is widely represented in modern fiction, one of the first was the film "Innerspace", where the hero was reduced to the size of the red blood cell, and he traveled on the human circulatory system on a special nanosubmarine. Such microscopic automatic repairers will be able to "repair" cellular damage or remove the incipient cancer when it is represented by just a couple of three incorrect cells. And this is no longer a fantasy out of reach, MIT scientists have already used experimental nanorobots to destroy ovarian tumors in experimental laboratory mice. How would you react to the fact that you will be injected into a vein with a solution containing thousands of microscopic doctors that will spread all over your body, conduct a total screening, identify the problems and then proceed to "repair"? While no one still knows if it will hurt .

Copy and paste

The next method is the cultivation of organs to be replaced. And here come into play the ubiquitous 3D printers! Yes, the organs will be printed in accordance with the biological scheme from the donor cells or the patient's own cells. Cells are taken from the body, a live culture is grown in special conditions and a nutrient medium, and then the desired organ is printed from this biomass. At first glance - it's easy! But while the technology has not been worked out yet and years of research still need to be done... Imagine a malignant smoker with lung cancer can simply replace the trachea, bronchi and lungs. Exactly as in the film "Constantine", where Keanu Reeves gets a completely new respiratory system????.

Cloning. Since cloning the lamb Dolly, only the lazy one has not discussed the possibility of growing "spare" organisms by cloning. It's so cool- you live and you have a spare body in the warehouse. Expensive? Seems insane, but this is an excellent way out! The spare body, "Products", as it was called in the movie " The Island", at the right time, you can take out the liver, kidneys, heart or spine. But in the "Island" clones were not just alive, but full of thinking and feeling copies of their "sponsors." And the cruel corporation actually killed clones for the sake of transplantation of absolutely identical organs.

The moral conflict in the movie was decided by the revolution, but what about in real life?

The ethical problem of human cloning is still not solved, years of legal, theological and medical battles are coming up for developing a common point of view on human cloning. The UN, WHO and criminal responsibility in many countries of the world for the work on human cloning is in effect, but the evidence and effectiveness of this method will necessarily lead to some mutually acceptable solution that will satisfy all aspects of the process- doctors, patients, lawyers, legislators, clergy and the public.

My choice is none of the tools listed above...

And yours?

BlockSocialChain: How Blockchain Can Become a Tool for “Little Man”

Opinions
Blockchain is a tool for “little man,” but are they really that little?
BlockSocialChain: How Blockchain Can Become a Tool for “Little Man”
Contents

In 1932, the year before Adolf Hitler was appointed as Chancellor, German writer Hans Fallada published a novel called “Kleiner Mann, was nun?”, known as “Little Man, What Now?” to the anglophone reader. Describing the bleak and hopeless socio-economic reality of life in the last years of the Weimar Republic, the book gained immense popularity and continues to be considered a classic of German literature.

Kleiner Mann, Was Nun? Nun is Blockchain

Fallada’s novel is far from being the first or last appearance of the “little man”– the insignificant clerk with a tiny salary, dependent on the system to provide for his family, caught in bureaucratic loops, powerless to change anything about his situation…

This archetype, as well as his conflict with the machinery of governmental indifference and leviathan financial institutions, makes an appearance in most literary and philosophical works of significance from the Industrial Revolution to the late 20th century. Consider works by Gogol and Dostoevsky, Kafka and Dickens, not to mention dozens of dystopian novels.

As Americans discovered in the second half of the 20th century, the desperation born of powerlessness and socio-economic immobility is not limited to the impoverished and the disenfranchised. In the 1950s, the attainment of the American Dream had become marred by a “general lust for conformity” and a “blind, desperate clinging to safety and security at any price,” as author Richard Yates characterized the context that inspired his 1961 novel Revolutionary Road.

The pressure to conform to a limited worldview became its own kind of centralized power, and society’s willingness to give up diversity and freedom for comfort and convenience, hollow as they may be, turned out to be a harbinger of the social media challenges we face in the early 21st century. The modern “little man” of the West has been appeased with adequate bread and circuses, but as it turns out, remains trapped and exploited. What now?

Catching a break(through)

Technological advances have always been a double-edged sword for human progress, but if there is anything that can help us overcome natural and socially constructed boundaries, it is the application of scientific knowledge. As science and technology advance, people are empowered to strive beyond centralized control to better awareness and freer choices. Telecommunications allowed us to peek beyond our circumscribed worldview, the pill gave women more control over their fate and a better shot at equality, while genetics showed us how our differences are, and are not, defined by a universal human codex.

Blockchain is the next major technological advance that can enable humanity to break from geographic, societal and economic constraints. As more platforms emerge and underlying infrastructure is developed, a device with Internet access and a will to learn about Blockchain applications is all that’s required to become part of the new global economy.

For people in developing countries, access to a secure decentralized financial system, smart contracts and a corruption-proof ledger can make the difference between relentless generational poverty and economic independence through investment or self-employment.

Crystal Rose, a developer and entrepreneur who has been very active in Puerto Rico’s recovery through decentralized solutions, has seen the potential of Blockchain for poverty relief: “My heart is in getting every human to become their own sovereign entrepreneur…. Having seen what kind of impact Blockchain can have on a place that is in need of literally every resource- that's a really big mission.”

The revolution will be incentivized

All Blockchain-based solutions, whether cryptocurrencies, identity tools or entertainment platforms, are built to incentivize good actors and reward behavior that adds value to the network. The incentives include direct financial compensation to those who choose to be active and trustworthy participants of the economy.

Toni Lane Casserly, one of the most vocal proponents of Blockchain-based governance, emphasizes the way Blockchain will redefine the value of human life: “Looking at another human being and seeing their only value as an economic asset is unacceptable…. The only way we're going to [empower] every human life is if we are fundamentally incentivizing people to have economic liberation through real open markets.”

Thus, as users find more gainful options for engagement in the global economy, big business has to vie for their loyalty and cooperation through incentives, rather than guarantee commitment through limitations. Perhaps, with the help of Blockchain technologies in the 21st century, the “little man” will finally gain independence and call the shots.

Ghosts in the machines

Before that can happen, though, Blockchain technology has to be more widely adopted. Are people prepared to understand and trust cryptographic ledgers?

Alongside the government and financial institutions, the role played by big technology in the subjection of humanity is another running concern in 20th-century literature. In Brave New World and The Minority Report, in Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and Neuromancer, we have envisioned ways in which advanced technology runs away from its creators.

With a gadget placed in the hand of half the world’s population, constant and omnipresent surveillance has become a reality of modern time, even if governments deny it and users prefer not to dwell on it. According to studies, most Americans think that technology plays a large part in improving life now and in the future, but at the same time they are highly concerned about the implications of increased automation and would like to see big technology companies more regulated.

Keeping new technology on our side, such that can take advantage of its possibilities without letting it corrupt our intentions is a delicate balance. Just like the Internet, Blockchain runs the risk of serving the masters it came to undermine. Truly decentralized public Blockchains are as of yet not the right fit for many implementations, but private Blockchains are more susceptible to manipulation. Overall, whether the benefits outweigh the risks is an evaluation that all participants of the new economy and the emerging crypto community will have to make for themselves.

B for Blockchain

Only a short time after the publication of “Kleine Mann,” the world was hurled into a series of conflicts culminating in the Second World War. Hitler’s success is attributed in part to the frustrated and demoralized spirit of the German people at the beginning of the 1930s. The revolt of the “little man” against oppression can become a vengeful and bloody affair– when the pendulum of dreams deferred and dignity denied swings back, history shows that it’s easy to go too far.

But Blockchain hailed as the truth machine and as the cryptographic guarantee of trust, may forever change the dynamics of social change. By transparently promoting values of decentralization, inclusiveness, political freedom and economic independence, blockchain might reveal to us that we were never the “little man” to begin with– we just didn’t have the right tools yet. We do now.

From Homo sapiens to Homo cosmicam: the stages of a great journey

SingUlarity
Space invasion is not a dream, the journey’s started
From Homo sapiens to Homo cosmicam: the stages of a great journey
Contents

What does a man need space for when he is not given eternity? - Salvador Dali asked sorrowfully. I'll try to console the classics: it is quite likely that it will be eternity that will be the result of a large space expedition of mankind. And this will be the process of settling the universe, long and extremely fascinating.

In my opinion, the key concept for understanding this process is autonomy. It is up to autonomy to determine this in the first place, according to which canons the relationships within the space settlements and between them will be built, how links with Earth will change. How, in the end, the very human essence will change.

A lot of analysis, a little imagination- as a result, these were the consequences.

Stage 1. Low autonomy

From this stage, we are separated by a maximum of several decades. It will begin together with the creation of orbital stations with artificial gravity and inhabited bases on the Moon and Mars. Three factors will play a key role in the formation of the system of public relations of the first non-Terrans.

First, in the initial stages, assembly of modules, installation and testing of equipment happens,  the living conditions of the settlers will be Spartan, the risks high and responsibility beyond the bounds. Accordingly, internal relations in the team will have to be built on the basis of a rigid vertical power: the station said NADO, the astronaut replied that it exists. Later, when life is adjusted, and security is ensured, there will be a smooth rollback to democratic values.

Secondly, at first cosmic settlements will be completely dependent on the earth. They can not survive and develop without regular supplies of resources and mechanisms, without the import of new knowledge and technology. Therefore, strict control and management of processes from the terrestrial control center will initially be taken for granted.

Third, with a high degree of probability, the first permanently inhabited bases will be created on the principle of "one state - one station." De facto, they will become space enclaves of the terrestrial powers: in the territory of Martian New Beijing or the lunar New Moscow, the systems of values, laws and social relations adopted in the metropolitan areas will operate.

Stage 2. Average autonomy

Self-sufficient inhabited settlements are created on all suitable for life planets of the Solar system. Landing expeditions are prepared beyond its limits. Technologies of construction of space cities have been worked out and widely available. On the planetary and orbital bases, the first generations of settlers born outside the Earth grew up.

There are non-state space cities, founded not by terrestrial governments, but by groups of like-minded people. Their participants determine the rules of the social system together, which the society will adhere to. Prototypes of such communities already exist: for example, the cosmic state of Asgardia or the concept of the orbital city "Ether.”

The connection with the Earth is still maintained, but the dependence of settlements on alma mater (translated from Latin- the nursing mother) is falling rapidly. From the center of human civilization the blue planet turns into its ordinary stronghold. Formerly established bases gradually abandon the status of terrestrial enclaves and move on to become self-government.

Diplomatic and economic ties are established between the space cities. The exchange of information and technologies, as a rule, takes place on a mutually beneficial basis, but increasingly on a non-reimbursable basis. Cultural integration is growing: today is the tour of the composite orchestra of Phobos and Demos on Jupiter, tomorrow is the week of the Martian ballet in the asteroid belt.

Future of State: From Asgardia to AI-Ruled Space Cities

Stage 3. High autonomy

Mankind has finally transcended the solar system and is actively developing planets that revolve around the nearest stars. People still remember that the Earth is their ancestral home, but they perceive it as an ordinary historical fact. This is how we treat Mesopotamia today, which is considered the cradle of the earthly civilization: yeah, so what?

The centers of public life are self-sufficient city-states scattered around the most suitable for life planets.

Around such cosmopolises an infrastructure is created from planets-farms, planets-mines and planets-workshops, functioning without human participation. The most likely form of social organization of such entities is a direct social contract regulating what is possible and what is not possible within each particular policy. Now the state is not a regulator, but a set of service functions that are almost completely automated.

It is impossible to deny the possibility of manifesting the remnants of the past. For example, the emergence of a military dictatorship aimed at forcibly seizing neighbors and creating an empire ruled from a single center. Or the formation of a hoard of cosmic nomads living at the expense of raids on prosperous planets. Particularly zealous futurists predict the probability of even slave-owning cosmosocieties. Which, in my opinion, completely no longer makes sense: to whom and why are slaves needed when all production processes are automated and robotic? Unless only in a harem…

Stage 4. Very high autonomy

At last, everything was accomplished, this is what modern science fictionists only dream in their wildest dreams.

The principles of movement in space are opened, allowing to move between the stellar systems with minimum energy for a few days/hours/minutes. Intergalactic spaceships for a man of a new era is the same as a car for us.

Compact generators have been created, which allow producing any volumes of energy from nothing.

In everyday life included the distant descendants of a 3D printer, allowing you to change the properties of matter and create anything from anything. For example, convert stellar dust to spare parts for a star. Or in works of art. Or pies with jam.

Humans are now completely self-sufficient units. Collective activity ceases to be a necessity, society loses the basic unifying functions. Nobody controls anyone, nobody obeys anyone.

People settle in the Universe individually, families or small groups "on interests." The possible options are:

● "private household": one person - one planet,

● "cobbled cottages": several people populate the planetary system and maintain good-neighborly relations,

● "communal": one planet is divided into residential areas between several tenants.

Autonomous resettlement does not mean that people will completely abandon communication with their own kind. Certainly, they will support communication through social networks of the next generation on an ecumenical scale. And on a conditional weekend fly from neighboring systems to a particularly picturesque asteroid to have a barbecue, drink beer and exchange news. And, of course, gossip: for example about how the Ivanovs from the XQ4981 system flooded the planet, and now, as plumbers drain the oceans, they moved to a summer cottage on an artificial satellite.

Stage 5. Absolute autonomy

In the famous "Monday starts on Saturday" Strugatsky characterized man as an intermediate link necessary for nature to create the crown of creation: a glass of cognac with a slice of lemon. All jokes aside, the principle is absolutely correct. Sooner or later the little man as a biological species will reach its limits, and something new will come to replace it. Crown of creation. Superman.

Homo cosmicam from the conditioned cocoon, inextricably linked with the material shell, will turn into a butterfly- a disembodied energy essence. Konstantin Tsiolkovsky called this energy radiant and the new community- radiant humanity.

Objects and technologies are no longer needed- all the necessary super-people are directly drawn from the surrounding world. Life expectancy is eternal. Moving to any point in the universe is instantaneous. Communication- at any distance. The remaining possibilities of energy entities can only be guessed. As well as the forms of their social order, if this can still be preserved.

It's a pity that you will not have to live beautiful at this time, neither to me nor to you.

Another solution has been found for the implementation of my plan to transfer production to space and create an orbital city. The details are below.

Actual web is a gem technology

It is common knowledge that spiders are fine weavers.

The thread that spiders produce has unique characteristics fully adapted for hunting. It is durable for its thickness, sticky, elastic and perfectly forms a network without any knots or additional fasteners. Now, for example, Japanese scientists are experimenting with some species of spiders, using genetic engineering, in order to get the most durable natural fiber. Carbon nanotubes are interwoven into this fiber to create a completely new quality- this "rope" is almost impossible to break. The ratio of the cross-section of the filament to the force applied to the break has no analogs in the modern world. These developments have not yet been put to practical use which is necessary for mass production, but scientists, as they say, are on the home stretch.

The Deceptions of Space, or the Not-So-Great Combinators

Countdown starts now

Not only has the web itself prompted scientists new technical analogies with the arachnoid species- the spider, developing a thread, moves on a web, making circular and radial movements. The carriage of the inkjet printer, where the cartridge is installed, moves in the same way, but only within the limits of the size of the device. Currently, 3D printers are very static devices.

What if we make the printer move in space and create extended 3D structures? This would be a great solution for outer space!

Then there would be no need to transport parts from Earth and their installation by astronauts to outer space. Another important point is the absence of seams or other joints that affect the rigidity of the structure.

It is these considerations that prompted the developers of Tethers Unlimited to create an arachnoid-like robot-3D printer SpiderFab. It's amazing how much this robot look resembles a spider! It has four limbs, each of which is a separate printer (the developers are going to increase the number of "legs"), the inflated "abdomen" is a container with the material for printing. Also, the robot has an autonomous power plant with a solar array for constant recharging. The robot will be able to move in the process of printing and create frame structures in the image and likeness of natural cobwebs.

The introduction of such a robot will solve the global problem- the creation of objects in space with such dimensions that the present state of technological development is not yet capable of. As I wrote above, the expensive delivery of parts and elements from the Earth will no longer be necessary. Also, all the "delights" of space mining will be revealed, when the elements extracted on asteroids and planets will be used. Space materials researched will allow creating such composites for printing, which were not possible under terrestrial conditions. Such a printer will be able to print any complex object in orbit, from a part or a spare part to gigantic stations. This would lead to materials being in abundance!

And now imagine a whole fleet of cosmic "spiders" that weave in the high orbit of the Earth an openwork skeleton of a giant object, in the near future finding the outlines of a space city... And this is no longer a dream!
