The Neural Extensis – A proposal for a new data access mechanism

Date: Dec 9th, 2008

Rough Abstract: c0nnected.net [registered] // [other proposed domains here]

Topic: true data singularity or the neural extentive humanistic content management system,

[considerations leading eventually to “the neural extensis,” a proposed eventual website.]

The generalities referenced in this paper define the majority scope of thought thus far on the topics covered, and within the framework of discussion inevitably lies some of the answers to these considerations, as well as inherent additional considerations.  

 

The burning question:  How do we “become” the internet and manage it intelligently? 

 

We are in the process already of disseminating and managing our internet information, as evidenced by different social networks, social bookmarking sites, blogs, aggregators, etc.  

 

However, this network of information is all information that existed at one point inside the human brain, or a human brain – if you prefer.    Using this basic assumptive truth – we are creating an extra-neural network of information…   Which is why I’ve chosen to coin the term, “Neural Extensis,” within the last few months when referencing the internet and its future.  

 

The future of networked computing in my mind is such that we ‘are’ the internet.  Through this new thought paradigm, we see that we as individual humans and as a global society, are adding so much value to this system that irrefutably we are creating the most powerful grid of knowledge ever assembled – and fundamentally the issue created by the constant influx of new  information- is such that inherently the network grows increasingly complex the more information that is added, and not to ignore natural law – entropy increases.  

 

But it’s not enough.  We’ll eventually figuratively but quite realistically drown in data with this method perpetuating itself unchecked… Just give it some years.   How many tour guides have gotten lost inside the complexity of the Winchester House?  😉  

 

Today,  most people already consider themselves overly socially networked, or are simply overwhelmed by the options available to them.  this will not slow down, in fact the data inflow rate will only speed up, exponentially in fact.  Content is generated at a much faster rate than even a year ago.  Intelligent, and planned organization is required at a much deeper fundamental level than is availably employed at present.  

 

Logically, we’ve already succumbed to the notion that we must manage “everything,” weather in life or online,  intelligently and simply – but we’ve had to rely on using our own brain power.  This is why we love the computer.  Because this is taxing, and everybody knows it.   The computer allows us to “process,” information or sets of information faster than ever before in history.  With this profound ability comes some fundamental limitations – of which we’ve yet to surmount.  These limitations find us growing increasingly inundated by both the amount of data we carry, learn, disseminate, and try to encapsulate into our lives and our conscious thoughts.

 

The key will be to make short work of this humanistic overhead and automating it somewhat or entirely based on user needs/preferences/requirements and so on… This will be the key to effective information management in the future.

 

So how will the information architecture (yet unplanned – but slated for c0nnected.net or neuralextensis.com,) create useful data relationships that self-assemble, self-aggregate, self-suggest, multiply/shrink information streams if needed, load balance and separate, self-correlate self analyze, and interconnect, and self organize for you?  There may be other necessary functions as well, however I’ve not fully fleshed out these thoughts and methodologies yet – this is where I want input the most – in the design of this new information architecture, essentially a world library – the new alexandrian library – the internet, but intelligently parsed, pruned, and shaped – delineated, yet flexible – defined yet nearly infinite if the users needs dictate. 

 

The foremost issue however, is as more of the internal brain is referenced and archived externally, the network becomes increasingly complex – as mentioned in the previous paragraph, and eventually to the point where it will become nearly un-navigable, and risks being a fractalized entity instead by virtue of sheer informational volume – instead of a unified one – both for personal and social dissemination/inter-relation.  A neo-post-modern humanistic disconnect, if you will – oddly caused by the sharing of information, rather than it’s restriction;  As in the days past.

 

Today’s internet requires much critical thinking and human overhead to navigate.  RSS feeds have automated much of the work in reading and consuming preferred content of the internet, but what good would a more useful feed do you if you didn’t know it was there?  This is the danger we’re walking into – with the internets total informantic capacity increasing to previously un-thinkable levels.  

 

Today’s internet also requires that you interact mostly directly with external sites, and they give you directly sourced and tailored information back that’s mostly useful,  or sometimes must be correlated into something of value by the user (blog comments, for example).   The primary point here however, is that this is a multi-modal model of interaction..  A blend of physical input with mental effort, correlated to a set of defined results, as we interact with the internet.  

 

A more unified model is what I have in my minds eye – one where we simply “connect,” and after some initial effort, our experience is tailored and improved over time – by the advent and synergist of modern technologies, and intelligent modeling across different strategic areas and disciplines – loosely defined such that it can fit everybody, and with enough parameters such that it can with no degree of uncertainty – tailor exacting specificity.

 

 

Friends and colleagues, we’re entering a brave new world,

How will you help define it?

 

Sincerely,

 

Omar Mohamed Amer

  2. Things were so much simpler years ago, when we paid for (almost) everything with cash. If we didn’t already have the money, we saved up and then bought the goods. Personal debt was minimal 30+ years ago.Years ago, it was harder, far harder to get a bank loan and a credit card. Now it’s so easy to get credit. No wonder personal debt is a crisis and getting worse.Dave has some good ideas, but to me he’s just another money guru. Next.
