Hey @rodant! Sorta, actually it’s a weird situation… I’ve been working the past year on finding the root to several future of work, hr, people data, collaboration, job sourcing, and retraining challenges everyone is experiencing, and found that at the core, people do not have access to or a way to understand and use the data they create about themselves even though there is a MOUNTAIN of data about them on every work app from slack, to zoom, to jira, trello, etc… We can fix most problems by inverting the data ownership model granting access control from the ground up, fed through API, processed through NLP.
We arrived at this conclusion after 10 iterations speaking with investors and users, with two soft no code demos.
However, due to the transcendence in scope we’re having to expand our view of how we’re thinking about our technology and system architecture.
Our task evolved into needing to build a platform that
- Gives each user power over their data, and the choice for when and how it is shared with their teams, groups or the public.
- A dynamic user database that is fed by NLP processed API data from their daily work as well as a few other sources.
2.a. Useful and powerful data visualizations on: Performance, gained talents, skills, and experience, as well as other information on their interactions with others, as well as neural diversity and emotional intelligence insights.
- Set goals for yourself, measure and track success
- Get career observations and AI suggestions for self improvement.
Everything else comes off that foundation.
The idea being if people Know Themselves they have the power to make themselves and their teams better. If this works for everyone, and the difference is at least 1% this idea could make the world a $1trillion more productive each year. --And I think a lot more people would be happy in their careers.
I think maybe I had heard about Solid in passing a few years ago, but after seeing Sir Tim in the news again this month, I dug deeper because the technology seemed to resonate with where we’ve discovered we need to go.
And I’ve been asking people I’ve met here on the form through DMs - Now I’m convinced that this is not just he platform to do what we’re being told is needed, but I feel like I’ve found our “people”
So I’m currently mapping out how Solid could be the foundation of a concept we’ve already designed and nocode demoed form an UX, and validated… And I want to do it with as much community support as possible. I think we got a few things wrong in our current draft. It’s written with a lesser understanding of the existing technology, legality, and culture of the decentralized web community. — but yeah, if anyone wants to take a look at what we’ve got so far, I’d love to talk.
Really, we just wandered into the back door of the decentralized web party by chasing a ‘need’ and found ourselves late to the party we didn’t even know we wanted to be at. Now it’s time for us to learn/ explore this idea further.
