Joseph Carl Robnett Licklider may well be one of the most influential people in the history of computer science
He had the vision of an “Intergalactic Comptuer network” that bacame much later the ARPANET, then the Internet.

We Netizens have begun to put together a Declaration of the Rights of Netizens and are requesting from other Netizens contributions, ideas, and suggestions of what rights should be included. Following are some beginning ideas. The Declaration of the Rights of Netizens: —————————————— In recognition that the net represents a revolution in human communications that was built by a cooperative non-commercial process, the following Declaration of the Rights of the Netizen is presented for Netizen comment. As Netizens are those who take responsibility and care for the Net, the following are proposed to be their rights: o Universal access at no or low cost o Freedom of Electronic Expression to promote the exchange of knowledge without fear of reprisal:
o Uncensored Expression o Access to Broad Distribution o Universal and Equal access to knowledge and information o Consideration of one’s ideas on their merits
o No limitation to access to read, to post and to otherwise contribute
o Equal quality of connection
o Equal time of connection
o No Official Spokesperson
o Uphold the public grassroots purpose and participation
o Volunteer Contribution – no personal profit from the contribution freely given by others
o Protection of the public purpose from those who would use it for their private and money making purposes
The Net is not a Service, it is a Right. It is only valuable when it is collective and universal. Volunteer effort protects the intellectual and technological common-wealth that is being created. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF THE NET and NETIZENS. Inspiration from: RFC 3 (1969), Thomas Paine, Declaration of Independence (1776), Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen (1789), NSF Acceptable Use Policy, Jean Jacques Rousseau, and the current cry for democracy worldwide.
Data Curation is Key in our world overloaded with unprecedented Data creation.
How to make sense, sort and organize all these data? This is strategic for all in the wired Knowledge society.
This has been well studied and documented by information scientists and specialist for the realization of complex systems. It can be extended to most information systems, platform and collaboration ecosystem : Open data Curation, Big data visualization, Creative commons, massive scale collaboration , collective problem solving….
Data Curation – Linked data – Knowledge Management
Data need to be contextualized and understood to be linked an curated optimally.
Step by step approach: the different stage of Data Curation Explained, inpired by Maslow’s Pyramid of Human needs
Maslow’s pyramid of Human needs Can Be applied to data Curation , to generate virtuous spiral of data curation,( content creation, data linkng, data contextualization, data Visualization Interaction,decision making leading to action)
Just Like Maslow Explained that needs need to be fulfilled step by step, Data Curation much follow such step to ensure Value Creation , in a Virtuous Circle. in 3 Stages:
Stage 1 : RAW Data Curation (objective/scientific/material criterias)
Create, Collect verify a data (is a true data? Does it Exist? is is an accurate Data? is It Consistent data?
the Data then curated once becomes an information , that can be stored, dat stamped , archived
Stage 2: Contextualization/ qualification (Subjectivisation):
What does it mean? is it important information? is it relevant? what context does it belongs to? Important or useless Information? What does it refer, relate to? Once curated the Information can start to be linked, exchanged…
Stage 3 : Linking, exchange, visualization . Decision making Inter-action, change: : Information becomes Knowledge, idea creation…
The importance of the Feedback Loop come into place In a complex system of Interaction. (see the work of Joel de Rosnay, the Macroscpe 1979)
Once these principles are implemented , controlled in a open collaborative way the P2P and block chain seems perfect for that purpose) then many ecosystems with specific purpose of Goals can be created, collective problem solving can be implemented ….BIG data predictive analytic…
