goals: To build an online educational resource showing how to make money on the internet, whilst at the same time showcasing the dangers associated with doing so.
This project focuses on the art of content marketing and strategy (also known as “content stacking”) and encourages readers and viewers to understand how media and content work together to not only help business owners thrive, but also how online content can be used in damaging ways in relation to mental and emotional health and data profiling which is causing severe ramifications on members of our community.
First and foremost, this is an educational multiplatform project and regardless of the entertainment factor, must never lose sight that it is created for the people by the people in the interests of the people (which means it can not be owned or sold to a company such as Apple or Google etc) instead it is to be given to or stay housed on an educational website that has the interests of the people at heart.
Aside from minor housekeeping, the project is to remain relatively unaltered for a period of at least 20 years to serve long enough for it to become mainstream and embedded into the culture of a single generation (our children’s) as our gift/responsibility to them in flooding the world with technology without an instruction manual.
Strategy: Due to the difficulties in creating a resource with so many potential ramifications, the strategy for this project is to create a secure and safe online multiplatform game where participants (including students who will need to be given different arenas based on different ages) will be allowed to “play” safely and experiment with creating and playing with content, including not only their own and team mates, but also the game master.
This project teaches:
Rules and boundaries etc via the playing games podcast: Jo Harris Childhood educator of 20 years. These podcasts in relation to play are designed for adults, but are also suitable for children.
Mental Health: Needs a specialist (we discussed leaving this out all together and simply focusing on emotional health) and as is well known by now, I believe mental health and labelling to be detrimental to society.
I also assert that most mental issues in society today are misdiagnosed as emotional issues, believing if the emotional issue is resolved then except in the case of severe mental issues, usually good emotional hygeine cures many mental health issues.
Emotional Health: Needs a specialist.
Financial Health: Juan is recommended due to his thorough understanding of the work of Adam Smith and his interests in helping underprivileged persons with his social resource allocation app. This work also explains the simple but complicated understanding of the gap between the “rich” and the “poor” with the division of labour and how governments and large corporations have been able to divide and conquer the people via the segregation of families and communities” leaving many people unable to keep up and others to pool together resources and thrive.
Basic Technology Comprehension: How data is stored/Tracked/Analyzed. Where it goes, what happens with it. How it is used in ways people may be unaware of.
Media Comprehension: The use of various techniques which can be used to “trigger” emotional responses and the way they are used in society to control and manipulate various forms of behaviour including:
- Mass unrest
- Political Division
- Fear/Disgust/Anger etc
Digital Sales and Marketing: Basic, Mid and High level Sales and Marketing techniques to help business owners understand how media and content are being used in the world around them to bring their business online and the responsibilities of wielding that content in an ethical manner.
We request a platform built, and secured with long term funding for staffing and software updates.
This will allow children and adults to get access to own their own media platform which is simple and easy to use and does not harvest data from the people it has been built for.
We also respectfully request a new social media platform to be crowdsourced with secure data storage that does not belong to advertisers or government and is funded for the lifetime of the project.
Digtal Library: We request an online platform to be made as a secure digital library to hold current, past and future documents in one secure location allowing people to access the resources they need in unbiased search results. This library will also allow a forum, courses, audio files and video files too.
Staff: We request a large budget to secure funding for the lifetime wages of staff contractors associated with the project to enable the right people to be hired to work on the project, which often means them leaving very high paying jobs to gain the knowledge or experience they bring to the table.
Support: We request funding to make physical exercise (via the gym etc or otherwise) a prerequisite as part of the experience with a minimum one hour per day allocated as a non negotiable.
We also request basic emotional health weekly training via access to something like a meditation app or otherwise which is also free and funded.
The Garden and Metamorphosis Digital have been designed as one part of a collective multiplatform experience.
Our vision for this project to be funded would result in:
The Garden would enable high level experts to come and teach in a professional environment and have their talks recorded and stored in The Change Room Digital Library, whilst still allowing members of the general public to take part in these talks and take the information back to the wider world.
This enables the knowledge to be passed on to people or communities who may otherwise not have access to it, and for it to become “embedded” into the culture.
Metamorphosis Digital is envisioned as a platform to encourage contractors and business owners to come together, pool resources, work together and make change, knowing that success is ultimately achieved through the division of labour.
Metamorphosis Digital will also run a student program, allowing teens to get access to digital education under the guidance of mentors or teachers who come to the facility to teach and work on high end signature projects for companies invested in creating change.
This allows students to have hands on practical training, and old school knowledge to be passed on.
It is asked that teachers who come to the facility commit to at least 4 weeks at a time, and our location is based in sunny Frankston. A coastal beach town on the Mornington Peninsula making it a welcome destination to not only work but also to bring family and friends for a relaxing break.
