“IoT covers different modes of communication: things-to-person communication and thing-to-thing communications, including Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication that potentially concerns 50-70 billion ‘machines’, of which only 1% are connected today. These connections can be established in restricted areas (‘intranet of things’) or made publicly accessible (‘Internet of things’).”
Common Purpose (CP) is a Charity, based in Great Britain, which creates ‘Future Leaders’ of society. CP selects individuals and ‘trains’ them to learn how society works, who 'pulls the levers of power' and how CP ‘graduates’ can use this knowledge to lead 'Outside Authority’.
Children, teenagers and adults have their prejudices removed. Graduates are ‘empowered’ to become ‘Leaders’ and work in ‘partnership’ with other CP graduates. CP claims to have trained some 30,000 adult graduates in UK and changed the lives of some 80,000 people, including schoolchildren and young people.
But evidence shows that Common Purpose is rather more than a Charity ‘empowering people and communities’. In fact, CP is an elitest pro-EU political organisation helping to replace democracy in UK, and worldwide, with CP chosen ‘elite’ leaders. In truth, their hidden networks and political objectives are undermining and destroying our democratic society and are threatening ‘free will’ in adults, teenagers and children. Their work is funded by public money and big business, including international banks.
It is proposed that government can be successful, and even vastly superior, if it has the direct participation of all of the governed. Open source governance incorporates the best features of direct democracy and tempers the drawbacks by use of a superior participation model and community structure. It is not expected that such a system could be achieved easily, but that the benefits of such a system far outweigh the costs and difficulty to attain it.
The current industrial economic system has mostly been built on transferring the value that nature has accumulated over the past billion years and churning it into easily consumable items, creating enormous waste. While spending it's solar, earthly capital, it has also at the same time spent it's human capital, borrowing heavily from society and amassing huge debt. So society finds itself today, depleted of capital, heavily burdened from overspending without really understanding why growth has stopped. Open government is a model for getting the system back in shape.
The Startup group of the Metagovernment project mostly is run as an adhocracy. However it intends to be run as an open source governance structure as soon a pre-release version of Metascore is available. This is called "eating one's own dogfood." At some point, there may also be a need for a formal organization to perform some administrative and interface tasks.
