Planetwork is building a new capacity for more effective online collaboration on JLINC.JLINC
is a new technology for sharing data under digitally signed automated agreements.
This allows existing systems to be interconnected in new ways.
The first working deployment gives each individual user control over their personal data sharing, permissions for how it may be used, and their communication preferences to fulfill the new personal data rights
under GDPR in the EU.
The system was initially designed for commercial relationships and can be connected to Salesforce for the organization. You can sign up for the JLINC private beta connected to Planetwork.
The same core technology can be connected to other platforms and additional functions can be added to allow individuals and groups to use JLINC as a new kind of universal organizing infrastructure.You could think of it like a distributed Facebook that actually serves society, where each individual can control the content feed that they see, and each group can host their own page wherever they want under their own control.
In addition, news and content arrives with a digitally signed chain of custody showing who produced it and their reputation.
The same system can support both news and shared content as well as user-controlled marketing communication.
Each user controls their own news feed and their own attention space, and each group controls their own collaboratively filtered feed. Up-voting raises the importance of an item within that group's feed.
Individual users can express interest in products and services that they want, and marketers respond with relevant information.
Marketers pay for user-directed interest and communication, and a share of that revenue goes back to journalists and content producers. Journalists
can produce real content and receive payment for it from marketing revenue on the system.
This creates a virtuous circle where people effectively pay for good quality content production by participating in a new kind of marketing communication that serves them under their own control.
The Planetwork ecosystem is the designed to work like the intelligent nervous system of the planet, addressing the real and pressing issues of our time.
