The TSIS project will create a global web platform to organize ordinary people to make changes together. It will solve problems standing in the way, like fake news, and provide tools for crowd-sourced leadership and activism.
The TSIS design will address 7 specific problems:
- Identity validation: Who really created anything you read and watch?
- Reputation communities: Who is honest and reputable, and who is not?
- Optimal Information: What’s great information, and what is disinformation?
- Proxy Delegation: Who can take problems and lead?
- Activism Support: How do thousands or millions of people organize and take action?
- Democratic Accountability: How do we make democracy transparent and accountable?
- Wealth Registries: What is BIG money doing with their financial clout?
These 7 systems will give ordinary people the information, leadership, activist capability, and accountability that they deserve to have.
At present, the platform is a conceptual design, requiring further refinement before it can be built. Consequently, the first phase is a proof of concept, to clarify the vision for the platform with a simplified demonstration for people to try out. A concrete demo will also help with fund raising.
With commercial methods, the proof of concept can be expected to cost most of a million dollars, given the size and scope of the undertaking. The actual approach will adjust to the funds available.
TSIS may ultimately be structured as a trust, directed by the user community and stakeholders, but the choice of global structure will require consultation and research.
