Building Open Communities
Open communities refers to the opportunity for anyone to join and contribute to the collaborative effort. The direction and goals are determined collaboratively by all members of the community.
Hosts You Can Trust
Trust is the principle foundation that binds all lasting relationships. It starts as a mutual trust between individuals, groups & communities and must flow in all directions.
It seems the bigger things become the least they can be trusted. Take Big Tech for example, all those “free” services they offer you cost billions to operate are littered with AI bots, monitoring, surveillance, recording and analyzing your every move.
In the digital age your information is more valuable than oil and gold, especially for Behavioral Psychologists that wish to socially engineer the face of society.
SAY NO!! to bots, AI, monitoring, snooping, back doors and backhanders.
That’s a big tech thing, not us…
