    public micro-messaging as a medium for change.

    ChangeMedium is a charitable initiative dedicated to advancing public micro-messaging as a medium for change.

  • Introduction

  • Om Malik April 14th, 2009:

    Twitter is just the beginning of this

    real-time internet -

    the simplest manifestation of this long term trend

    - that spells the end of communications

    and start of an interaction

    society.

    As Om Malik observed:Twitter is ... the start of an interaction society.

  • Already people are talking about it topping Google

  • "They announced they were going to shut down their system for maintenance, and

    we asked them not to," one official said,

    adding that the discussions were meant to "highlight to [Twitter] that this was an

    important means of communication, not with us but

    horizontally in Iran."

    And already it is becoming essential public infrastructure.

  • I no longer understand my own creation

    ~ Tim Berners-Lee, Inventor of the Web

    In July 2008 at a Nesta Web Science event Sir Tim Berners Lee, inventor of the web, said...

    I no longer understand my own creation

    He also implored the audience...

    Ask not whether we're asking too much of the web, but whether we're asking too much of us

    Indicating that what this is and where its going is about people.

  • Simple

    It starts with being simple.

    A text message of not more that 140 characters.

  • So simple that grandmas can use it.

  • Accessible

    Being sms compatible, it can be used anywhere, anytime from mobile phone

  • or the web.

  • Public

    And being public

  • each message is a message everyone can read.

  • AND

  • Participatory

    People, are meaningfully participating

  • many - many

  • and 1 - 1

  • But hold on, theres more

  • Its clearly not about the single message

  • like shaq coaching oprah

  • its more about the context around the people...

  • ...around the links

  • ... and topics

  • Which leads us to...

  • A unique publishing medium thats rewiring the web for real-time, interest-driven, discovery...

    Public Micro- Messaging

    SMS

    ... creating the most accessible, participatory, public medium in history.

    creating the most accessible, participatory, public medium in history.

    Public micro-messaging merges the extensible/emergent nature of the web with the 4B person reach of SMS.

  • ChangeMediumAdvancing

    public micro-messaging as a medium for change.

    ChangeMediums mission is to advance and optimize public micro-messaging as a medium for change.

  • Signals

  • Personal, interest-

    driven, discovery.

    It is unprecedented for personal, interest-driven discovery.

    So if I like So you think you can dance, I can follow a producer/judge - as a person.

  • Or I can follow my more productive interests for links...

  • and connections.

  • Exposure, Transparency & Reporting

    It also enables unprecedented reporting...

  • Thats changing how we engage in current events.

  • Flash Mobilization & Collaboration

    And finally we have unprecedented opportunities for flash mobilization like #hohoto where, in 18 days, over a dozen people came together over twitter to co-led the creation of a sold-out party to 600 people which raised $25,000 and 2t of food for the local foodbank.

  • Shortly after, Twestival raised $250k in less than a month for Charity water through close to 1000 volunteers hosting events in over 200 cities around the world in which 10,000 people attended.

  • So...

  • 15+ Million Users

    If most of this happened with less than 5million users...

  • 15+ Million Users

    100M Users?

    1B Users?

    What happens when we reach 100m or 1b users?

  • Problems

  • Fractured Data

    So where do all those public messages sit?- in Twitters private serversAnd for how long?And what what if I want to use a different service like Identi.ca?

  • Incompatibility

    And what happens when there are more services that we want to use?How do we access all these public messages?How do we search for everything everyone is saying about the next major event?

  • Disruptions

    And what happens when Twitter goes down - again - and again.

  • Solution

  • Research

    Researching what makes the medium work

  • Network-Grade Infrastructure

    Building a network-grade infrastructure

  • Labs

    And convening labs to experiment and evolve the medium for maximum public benefit.

  • Scope

    Were scoping that out some more...

  • Research

    What is unique about this medium? What new does it make possible? What aspects and attributes are essential

    to its potential?

    And are interested in...- what is unique about this medium- what new it makes possible- and what aspects and attributes create its potential

  • Network-grade Infrastructure

    Processing infrastructure Common standards SMS gateway

    While not simple, building out a network-grade infrastructure is not only possible, but represents an extraordinary cost/benefit argument.

    When has it been possible to build a public medium that the US State Department starts considering essential, global, infrastructure for a few million dollars?

    Initial scoping of this infrastructure includes: - an interoperable message processing infrastructure operating at a level below Twitter- common standards optimized for public benefit- and a global sms gateway to streamline public micro-messaging growth and application.

  • Labs

    Experimental applications Infrastructure development Public benefit partnerships

    And finally, given the emergent nature, one of the best ways to learn is to actively experiment.

    Through internal and ad-hoc labs, Changemedium is considering:- experimental applications to advance the application of the medium for public benefit- developing the infrastructure, and - supporting public benefit partnerships.
