People accumulate a wealth of knowledge in their lives as they pass from project to project and industry to industry. Each of our social, creative, and intellectual pursuits and exposures combines to form the person who we are and the contribution to society that we represent.
Your knowledge and experience also helps others predict what preferences you may have and what decisions you may make. Corporations, advertisers, banks, insurance companies, and politicians all want to know this and they will go to extreme and expensive measures to get it – why not just sell it to them?
Peace sells, but who’s buying?
Management of companies, little league teams, Rotary Clubs, even raising a family, is extremely valuable knowledge to a wide variety of situations. Civic service, spirituality, military service, and philanthropy provide a basis for a host of knowledge attributes. Academic accomplishment, physical achievement, artistic expression, manual dexterity, and whole body coordination provides great insight to the application of all knowledge. Physical challenges, grief, personal struggles, and the experience of injustice further add to the wealth of knowledge one accumulates in a lifetime.
Every person is unique with a different set of knowledge than any other; therefore, everyone has something to offer to someone else. Each person’s combination of formal and informal education is valuable in it’s uniqueness. With the proper system and incentives in place, trillions of dollars are on the table to bid for access to your knowledge.
The Den of Thieves:
The resumes that we post on Monster.com are woefully inadequate and so heavily gamed that predictive utility related to your future decisions and innovative capacity is severely compromised.
The credit score also measures past behavior by tracking negative events; many of which are outside the control of the subject such as a layoff, fraud, medical emergencies, etc. Again, the credit score is quite useless as a predictor of future decisions and innovative capacity.
Now we have Social Media and the mad scramble to be visible in social media space. The scourge of marketers, spammers, and fraudsters are close behind chasing your information that they are all too happy to sell to the aforementioned “clients”.
Take a Step Back … and get a grip
We are talking about your information that describes your knowledge attributes which predicts your preferences, your future decisions, and your innovation. Yet complete industries exist to collect it from you for free, organize it, and sell it to others for a great deal of money. There are 5000 job boards collecting resumes, 300 Million credit scores being securitized by Wall Street, and 12,000 social media sites aggregating your creative content, relationships, and knowledge attributes.
Join The Ingenesist Project:
The Ingenesist Project specifies a system where your knowledge attributes are expressed in a packet of code that you control, distribute, regulate, withhold and track as you wish.
The result is that you will be paid to learn, to know, to practice, and to participate in life as you wish. It becomes in your best economic interest to produce exactly what you are best at, and have a talent for producing. It will be in the best interest of corporations, marketers, Wall Street, insurance companies, and Politicians to support you in these pursuits so they can “farm” the knowledge today that will buy their products tomorrow.
