Governances: Self-governing communities, with variations for everyone

Continuous online communities — new kinds of “governances” — will add larger and more powerful solutions. With Expandiverse Technology everyone can rise to greatness, so greatness will become normal.

 

A coming Expandiverse component is continuous online Governances. These are organized groups that can engage in any profitable business, or nonprofit charity. They can be local in a neighborhood, or worldwide across multiple countries. They provide new ways to provide continuous connections between people, services, places, tools, resources and other businesses.

Given these opportunities, what could change if this technology were available to everyone? Could some useful continuous communities emerge?

 

By 2025 can we rise above today’s ceilings? Could greatness for everyone become normal?

Health and wellness

An example of a human services community is Health Care. Medicine is great at intervening when we get sick, and with continuous connections it will get even better.

But the real health story is we are rarely sick enough to need a doctor. Everyone has to manage their health all their lives. What if our continuous connections include remote monitoring, early disease detection, better care coordination and other services — and those tied into wellness communities in the areas we each want assistance? Our powerful digital world would be a thriving place for everyone who wants to be their best and stay that way. Community services could provide early alerts as people naturally slip, with instant guidance on what to do and “always available” help from others who are doing it.

Healthy, natural food

A basic needs community is food — everyone who wants to produce, manufacture, sell and eat healthy, natural food.

Today’s economic system keeps everyone in the food chain separate and self-focused. Farmers maximize their income, as do food manufacturers and grocery stores. Consumers struggle to find the healthy, affordable and great tasting food that’s hidden among the tens of thousands of brightly lit choices in a modern supermarket.

Because every part of the food chain sub-optimizes for its own profits, there’s an elephant in the room. The food chain isn’t optimized to produce the healthy, affordable and great tasting food so many people want.

With continuous digital communities that span the food chain and connect its many contributors, we can work together to help coordinate our food system so it delivers great tasting food to feed tomorrow’s hungry world of 9 billion people.

Global supply chains

Some supply chains will be private online communities that could improve how the economy works.

Today, companies are trying to get to once-a-week meetings where they know the demand (orders), their inventory and their suppliers’ scheduled shipments. This hamster wheel runs in batch mode. People collect the data, everyone meets to make decisions, then they separate to do it.

Imagine real-time continuous connections throughout a company, with data-driven dashboards and a single community of all the managers, employees, systems and equipment that do the work. When problems surface alerts are fired off to the relevant people. They can respond instantly through their continuous online connections. The new situation updated, and new problems are tackled immediately by every person and resource needed.

Online, that community can scale to include multiple companies throughout a supply chain. This expanding online community works between companies to manage the flow of goods and solve problems.

Entire supply chains can move to a new level of speed, accuracy and productivity — improving their ability to deliver what’s needed by tomorrow’s high-velocity global economy.

Senior citizens

Senior citizens are a great example of a large group because there are large senior populations all over the world.

As senior citizens age they grow more confined and immobile. They’re kept younger and healthier when they receive more stimulation, engagement and responsive health care. In tomorrow’s continuously connected digital world they can enjoy continuously connected lives. Their digital lifestyle can include their children and grandchildren, their lifetime friends, online community activities and their care givers.

At the exact stage that seniors’ physical mobility declines, their digital mobility can turn global. They can travel the world online, experience its treasures and build friendships everywhere. The world is made local and brought to them via their personal screens. Perhaps for the first time, a world of senior citizens can be continuously connected to enjoy the experiences they wish they could have had when they were young.
