Enlightened Structure

, ,

Update: Several Enlightened Structure projects are being developed under Superluminal Systems, though still open-source developments.  See the new Enlightened Structure website for updates, as well as the Core.Network website.


What is the problem we are trying to solve?

A key issue with the architecture of the emergent trust landscape of the internet is silos of non-interoperable trust information, making it difficult for users to coalesce a cogent trust landscape.Furthermore, current collaboration paradigms are limited – notably, it is difficult to collaborate with large numbers of people, especially when conflicting ideas are present.

What is the goal of this project?

The goal of Enlightened Structure is to enable and facilitate the emergence of a simple and powerful open platform for humanity to exchange its trust information, amalgamating existing trust ratings from many sources, feeding them into a free, open, globally distributed information network and API.We work from first principles, focussing on both human and machine readability. Everything is content addressable, built on node graphs, and designed for next-generation in-browser 2D & 3D visualization and navigation.

What is the scope of this project?

The scope is creating the underlying frameworks that will enable those technologies to emerge. We have published APIs (in open collaborative forkable form) for trust networks and creative collaboration, and are delivering candidate components to fulfill the promise of those APIs.

What development methodology is being used?

We are fully immersed in open source collaboration ethos, using existing systems such as github, and bootstrapping on our own collaboration engine, creating our IP inside of the systems we are developing.
