Internet of Communities
= "A new set of collective incentives to maximize social engagement".
"The Internet of Communities (IoC) is a vision of a social Web willfully designed to maximize social engagement by introducing a new set of collective incentives. Inspired by close-knit communities, the IoC promotes a crowd sourced environment where individuals thrive together through the process of mutual support. Collective reputation is chosen as a means for collective governance and internally rewarding incentives are chosen as the prime motive for action. Within this scheme, influence is more likely to shift to those who positively impact their communities, to those who lead by example, and to those who reciprocate with fairness. Designed from first principles, this proposal for a new social environment introduces both a collective intelligence mechanism and a resource allocation system to actualize greater human, social and economic value from online communities.
