What “could be” is so much more exciting than what exists now
The digital landscape constantly shifts every way you look. With the virtual floor shuffling underneath our feet, which direction do we go to step confidently into the future? We are going to explore that question by predicting how the future with our online content will look.
1. Create Content Everywhere
“Elon Musk is turning his attention back to the internet: he’s awaiting permission to send almost 4,000 small satellites into low-Earth orbit that would beam back a high-speed wireless signal to everyone on the planet. And things are moving fast: Musk hopes to launch a series of test satellites in 2016, with a view to completing the project by 2020.”
In this future prediction, everyone will be perpetually connected. Granted that everyone has a device with internet connectivity, people will have the potential to create content from the depths of the Amazon rain forest to the top of Kilimanjaro. If there are over 72 hours of video being uploaded to Youtube every 60 seconds, when only a certain percentage of the planet has internet connection, just imagine just how much more content will be created once everyone in the world will have internet connection. Online content can be created everywhere.
2. Content Will Become Truly Private
“Breakthrough Computer scientists are perfecting a cryptographic tool for proving something without revealing the information underlying the proof. If you need to disclose personal information to get something done online, it will be easier to do so without risking your privacy or exposing yourself to identity theft.”
The ability to create content everywhere in the world means next to nothing if you’re digital security and online privacy is perpetually at risk. The cryptographic tool scientists are developing is appropriately named zero-knowledge proof. Thanks to global internet connection, content will become more shareable. And because of zero-knowledge proof, shareable content will be private too.
Swomi technology fills in the missing piece to online privacy by allowing people to be in charge of their online content. When you are in charge of your content, you can command what content of yours goes out, who sees your content, and when regardless of whether your content is encrypted or not.
3. Content Will Become Synonymous With Life
“Digitization began with words and numbers. Then we moved into games and later into rich media, such as movies, images and music... Now, we are digitizing everything about our daily lives: our actions, words and thoughts... Cheap, ubiquitous sensors are documenting everything we do and creating rich digital records of our entire lives.”
If this all sounds like our lives are becoming more deeply intertwined with your online content, you’re right. Online personalization services like those when you shop online collect your online actions to suggest more items you may buy. Your words are digitized and recorded every time you speak to your AI voice-assistant. Even Google proclaimed they can basically read your thoughts based on your search history. Digitization of our physical lives into online content has been slowly infusing itself into your daily life while you barely realize it.
If constant internet connection, zero-proof encrypted privacy, and digitized life all sounds a bit strange, you’re right about that too. But it doesn’t have to be strange. Right now, large online corporations datamine and take advantage of user’s online content without their knowledge or permission. Swomi aims to reverse the tables and empower everyday people to be in charge of their online content. The result? A future where as many people as possible live the Content Lifestyle - a way of life where people receive the benefits of their online content and have the freedom to pursue their dreams.
