Founding Principles of The Intellectually Connected Community

 

  • The power of capturing the intellectual contribution of a participating community and making it available to its members in an efficient, real time process, will help them make better essential life decisions which are more likely to have success.
  • The technology now available can enable a “pool” of the information, knowledge and experience within an “engaged” and contributing community to be available to the individual members. The process which enables this can filter, validate and customize facts and conclusions as a basis for key decisions and action for the members.
  • In broad terms the community takes control of its own information flow and conclusion process, rather than relying on the unknown biases of other interest groups that are at present maintaining a tight control on most of the information we are presented with.

Our lives depend on the need for predictive factual data that help us understand the future impact of the decisions we make today. For example:

  • How much can I afford to pay for a house?
  • How should I prepare for retirement?
  • What should I plan for my children’s education?
  • What career and qualifications should I pursue for financial security?
  • How should I manage my personal/family’s finances to get the best out of our income?

If we as a community take control of the factual information that we use to draw conclusions and make decisions that will shape our future, we will all make better decisions and have a better quality of life.

We all have different capabilities and experience that creates bias in our decisions. Having access to validated facts from a diverse community helps us recognize the implications of our own bias.
