Introducing The Overweb
The Next Level of the Internet
Not Your Old Man's Internet
If 2020 has taught us one thing it is our connectedness and interdependence. We are a community of destiny that will decide fate of humanity. We must start with the Internet. Theoretically it's role is to make us collectively smarter, more intelligent such that can safely transition to a healthy balance of #gameb dynamics online and offline.
Clearly, today's Internet is not tapping into a latent asset of collective foresight, intention & action that is necessary for a viable collective response to the existential threats that your generation has inherited. You are also inheriting an Internet of silos that inhibits non-algorithmic collective action, something that we need to develop more than ever. On the other hand, with the meta-level of the Overweb, the web could be the foundation for truth, collaboration, and collective intelligence that we urgently need. And the technology exists now.
Meet on Web Pages
Meet, Network & Collaborate
The Overweb is where young leaders and innovators meet to share, inspire and network over the webpage. We’re proud to host some of the most well-known and influential voices in the Overweb.
Imagine going "visible" on webpages of your interests and being able to see the persona profiles of the other people
Connect the Dots
Use Bridges to Represent Truth
Bridges democratize linking, enabling browser users to create deep links between pieces of content with relationships. For example, a bridger
might create a contradictory bridge between a piece of text in a news article to a TikTok or a segment of a YouTube video in which the person in the video is contradicting what is written in the article. The bridges aggregate into a Collective Learning Map.
The Overweb Pattern
Safe Digital Space
Real People in Good Standing
On the Overweb, you can be assured that the personas you encounter are real people in good standing. No bots, fake accounts, or serial abusers. The Overweb has no throwaway accounts. Your history stays with you for better or worse.
Go Visible on Webpages
When you opt-in to being visible on a webpage, you can see the other personas visible on the page in a filterable list or even their cursors on the screen. For any visible persona, you can see the profile information they reveal to personas they are not connected with and request communication.
100's of Smart Tags
On the Overweb, you have access to many smart tags. Initially note, bridge, conversation, poll, claim, meeting, and list. We will roll out more as we build. In the future you will be able to make you own smart tags.
