See the full introduction:
The biggest pain point:
- Digital disruptions of your leading company, in the midst of…
- Stagnant economies
- Declining middle class
- Elites-directed democracies
- Growing rejections of capitalism and controlled “democratic” governments
- 40% to 50% of leading companies are expected to be replaced within 10 years due to Digital Transformation
Companies will collectively spend over $1 trillion on their Digital Transformations during the next decade. This will accelerate disruptions from new technologies and digital competition.
Your biggest risk: You’re a leader but copy Nokia in your Digital Transformation — so you fail to innovate enough.
Just because your company is winning today — even if you lead today’s surging Internet growth — doesn’t mean you will win in the future.
The big surprise will be a Global Digital Transformation that eclipses individual company transformations. Part of that surprise will be Human Exponential Growth for everyone — new abilities, achievements and authority by those who want it.
This page is an Exponential Growth Roadmap based on new Expandiverse Technology. These Components can be cherry picked by one to many companies to help them lead a customer-centered Digital Earth.
Your company could deliver a Global Digital Transformation that helps everyone achieve upward. You could grow markets by adding extraordinary new personal abilities everywhere. It’s your company that can be continuously connected to people worldwide, by delivering the first DEaaS platform — Digital Earth as a Service.
Everyone could rise to the top for the first time in history. Without revolutions and without attacking those at the top.
With your company a world leader.

Component 1. UX—User Experience:
Shared Spaces, Continuous Connections, Digital Boundaries, Journeys to Quality Relationships
Always on Shared Spaces, with Continuous Connections and Digital Boundaries
Consumers: The Journey to Quality Relationships on a User-Controlled Digital Earth
Component 2. Devices and User Presences:
Devices become families. Users gain multiple presences and continuous connections. With a shortcut.
“Multiplied presences” for both consumers and employees
Multi-Screen Families of Devices
What’s the shortcut to a Digital Earth — and this future?
Component 3. Customer Success and Satisfaction:
Active Knowledge — The world’s best knowledge finds you, enabling immediate success by everyone.
Stop fearing AI and start building Human IA — Intelligence Amplification
This isn’t education or critical thinking. It’s direct IA — Intelligence Amplification — for everyone.
Consider leading companies everywhere. Will they want employees who are at the 50% or 60% level, or will they want all their employees to rise above 80%? Then consider becoming the best at what’s important to you. Which will prove more powerful in your life: A few companies’ AI, or Human IA for everyone?
How high could you rise? How quickly?
Will greatness be the new normal?
Maybe not in the future. Could we have a world with 3 out of 4 users “above average?”
Human Exponential Growth:
How far can you go?
Could everyone become fast and successful?
A continuous connection with everyone
Component 4. New Partnership Capitalism: User Control
New Internet model: Personal growth and quality, funded by transaction and ad revenues.
Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality show that “blended screens” are arriving
Consumers Control the Digital Earth
The world’s most valuable real estate will become your user-controlled interface on all your screens:
- Display the world you want, the world you believe in.
- Replace today’s targeted advertising and content tsunami with the ads and content you choose.
- When you control your screens, you will help shape tomorrow’s digital economy and the world it builds.
Your benefits from Digital Boundaries: Companies will serve you and fit your choices. They will make your life and the world better — instead of you serving them.
Consumers Command the Digital Economy
People changed entire industries when they took control of music and news. Next, you can help transform unhealthy food (obesity and disease) and global warming (fossil fuels). Expandiverse Digital Boundaries are a kill switch on the world you don’t want, and a green light for the world you want to help develop.
Digital Boundaries can be run for millions by advertising services. They can be managed by nonprofits whose goals people want to strengthen by living in the world they work to build. These nonprofits can share the advertising revenues from helping redirect the economy.
Because your choices are clear, customer-centered companies will serve you directly. They will deliver the “quality experiences” you would like. When you choose the world you display, your choices will change the world.
Component 5: Supply Chain / Demand Chain:
A real-time coordination platform for the global economy.
Consumers, vendors and logistics can all migrate to the Expandiverse’s real-time Digital Earth
Continuously Connected Global Platform
On the supply side a company can continuously connect manufacturing, shipping and distribution to get the right products to the right sellers when their customers need them.
On the demand side, customers can be continuously connected so their needs are known and met right away.
As we grow a global supply chain that’s 2 to 3 times larger, we will solve supply chain problems immediately, and reach new levels of economic performance.
The Supply Chain in Shared Planetary Spaces
As each participant does each step, supply chain managers can evaluate the progress. They can coordinate in real time with each participant, and with those who receive what they do.
With new continuous connections in always on Shared Spaces, global supply chains will become more accurate and effective.
Projected Example of a Future Supply Chain
As the Supply Chain operates we will learn the steps where business processes and employees succeed and fail while they are working. Projected improvements include
- Fitting market demand by using “always on” relationships with customers.
- Aligning data worldwide with suppliers, logistics and retailers.
- Fixing problems in minutes and hours, instead of in one to three weeks.
- Locating what is needed anywhere in a supply chain, as soon as the need for it is discovered.
The global economy becomes one digital room, with everyone in it
Component 6: Multiply global tech resources
Turn tech products and services into worldwide, immediately accessible resources.
Is everyone just steps from the top of the pyramid?
With cloud access and remote control, everyone can turn parts of their tech products and services into shared resources. People and businesses that need income, and want to benefit everyone, could rent or share their tech as worldwide resources. Original vendors could make global uses a channel, and receive royalty payments from downstream revenues. Vendors that object can be replaced by competitors that permit digital sharing in their business model.
Everyone can use the world’s best devices, software, tools and content — with Active Knowledge guidance for “next best steps” success. This shifts global tech from scarcity to abundance, and personal success from blocked to immediate.
Everyone could rise by achieving upward. That would start flipping society’s pyramid upside down — without revolutions, and without attacking those at the top.
Component 7: Multiply personal productivity:
Digitally multiply everyone’s abilities: Multiply yourself, your worlds and governances
How many lifetimes do you want?
The future of reality: If reality isn’t the positive world you need, change it
Multiply the ways to meet human needs
From healthy food to lifelong education to health care to renewable energy, self-controlled Governances are human services you choose between — so you get the services you need. There’s no expensive one-size-fits-all bureaucracy that’s required for everyone.
Result 1. Human Exponential Growth:
New technology and architecture for people-first, real-time personal growth for everyone.
Invent a new technology that changes the world
The world’s companies are about to spend over $1 trillion on Digital Transformations during the next decade. The big surprise will be Global Digital Transformation, which will supersede company transformations.
Many companies are well positioned to lead an Expandiverse Global Transformation. They have the ability to deliver a “DEaaS — Digital Earth as a Service.” Thousands of companies and millions of people could enter this world to do business and live digitally — all day, every day.
One or more companies could provide this operating infrastructure and embedded ecommerce platform — on a Digital Earth that is more immediate, powerful and rewarding than today’s physical world and economy.
World Economic Leadership: The new “visible hand of the market”
The Expandiverse adds the first “visible hand of the market:”
- As tasks and steps are done, both successes and gaps are visible. These drive big data and analytics.
- Gaps are prioritized economically, and turned into advanced products and services.
- The new, proven products and services are delivered personally to those who face that need.
- This happens during the moment when they do the task and step, when their need is strongest and benefits are both largest and immediate.
This new Expandiverse system produces exponential growth for both companies and people. On a Digital Earth, progress will be created and delivered to everyone, raising the world to new levels of achievement.
Increase revenues by turning industries digital,
and earn revenues from them
Who could use a one-step “Digital Earth as a Service” (DEaaS), with embedded commerce?
- Numerous industries, professional services and local businesses
- Smart cities, schools, public services and health care
- Entertainment, travel and more
- Their customers, employees, suppliers and partners
Here’s a possible timeline:
- 2016-2017: Planning, architecture and lean design-testing
- 2018-2020: Develop, refine and scale a focused platform
- 2020-2025: Mass-market roll outs and global scaling
- By 2025: A worldwide Digital Earth that can deliver universal success and continuous advances
Will you be its leader?
First Strategy — Defensive:
Dodge Digital Downfall
How will your company survive and prosper? This first strategy is how to survive and get the resources to become a digital leader.
Second Strategy — Offensive & Leadership:
Lead a Digital Earth
Result 3. World Leadership Roadmaps for Industries and Key Areas:
Expandiverse Roadmaps to capture leadership of industries, key areas and the world. Start with your industry and aim for the world.
Can your company help lead tomorrow’s winner-take-all digital economy?
The Expandiverse’s big surprise is a Global Digital Transformation that includes the opportunity to overcome economic stagnation, inequality, the decline of the middle class, universal lifelong learning that keeps advancing people current as the world grows, and much more.
Capitalism provides huge rewards for leaders, and punishing declines for laggards.
Each company can use these Roadmaps to help it decide whether or not to lead its industry, then scale up to a Global Digital Transformation. With these “reference models,” your company can consider becoming an apex competitor. Or you can use these Roadmaps to see how other companies might soon defeat you:
Media: Ads and Content
Media 2025: If the future were Disney’s, CBS’s, Comcast’s, Washington Post’s or Another’s
Roadmaps in development: Key Areas and Industries
People will be in control: Each person can choose the kind of world he or she wants, and customer-centered companies will serve them.
For example, when will you switch from the “Age of Obesity” to the “Age of Healthy Food?” And will you leave the “Age of Climate Changing Fossil Fuels” behind?
When you hold a Digital Kill Switch and help run a “People-First Economy,” will you stay at the bottom — or put yourself on top?
Key Area Roadmaps:
|Key Area||Example Transformations|
|Brands 2025||Customer journeys to continuously connected, high quality customer-vendor relationships.|
|Digital Cities 2025||Parallel physical and digital cities; Services, multiple presences, multi-city residence/employment, notifications, alerts, etc.|
|Privacy, Safety, Security 2025||Online and physical safety beyond surveillance, police and governments.|
|Politics 2025||Inequality, middle class decline, low economic growth, education, government healthcare, visibility of politician payments/government capture, multi-country citizenship, etc.|
|Identity 2025||Parallel physical and digital identities; Identity services, worldwide presences, multi-country citizenships, multiple work/career paths, trans-identity/trans-border asset management, etc.|
|Constructed Environments 2025||Creating, broadcasting, sharing and living in the multiple digital environments your multiple identities want and choose.|
Capture other industries. Or be captured.
Convergence has begun.
|Public Domain 2025||All, if Expandiverse Technology can be made public domain.|
|Social media / Remote Work 2025||Facebook, Slack, LinkedIn, etc.|
|Search 2025||Google, Chatbots, Voice assistants, Active Knowledge, etc.|
|Devices 2025||Apple, Samsung, Android, Huwei, Lenovo, etc.|
|Software 2025||Microsoft, SAP, Oracle, Cloud services, Apps, etc.|
|IoT and Industrial Internet 2025||GE, Intel, Qualcomm, Cisco, etc.|

Result 5. New Expandiverse Technology and IP
Over 430 rapid patent citations indicate the arrival of a new technology cluster.
Leading indicator of a “new technology cluster”
“We present a conceptual framework and a computational algorithm for studying the process of technological evolution and making predictions about it by mining the patent citation network… Our methodology seeks to detect incipient technological trends reflected in the citation network and thus to predict their emergence.”
It would be interesting to see the results from this data:
- Over 430 total patent citations were received within months after the first Expandiverse patent issued.
- Over 90 of those citations were from from 8 of the world’s 10 biggest technology companies.
- Bill Gates cited this in 8 of his new patents.
- This compares to an average patent receiving just 3 to 6 citations during its 20-year lifetime.
- The U.S. Patent Office divided the 1,400 page Expandiverse Technology into 31 technology categories, enabling new patent applications until 2030.
- This IP will be in force until 2031 — a Digital Earth will go into wide use long before that.
