In a gist, what I want to do is to create a new form of communication through our product.
Such an innovative product can have a potentially life-changing effect for many, and some may not like such a drastic change in the way we communicate today. There are countries where social networking is banned by the government, or worse yet, ostracized. Of course these are extreme cases, but a change, for many, can be or is intrinsically a source of pain.
Why do we need to change the way we communicate in the first place? Is it really necessary? Maybe it is not necessary at all now. Even if such product existed, no one would know the real utility value of it at the beginning. The value might be minimal at best.
The invention of the Internet has been changing every aspect of our everyday lives. The world now knows that we are more connected than ever before, robots and drones are prime example of this.
On the other hand, there is still a lot of room for change when it comes to human to human interaction. We can expect a major shift in how we connect with, understand, and trust one another.
The history of communication has seen a rapid change in recent years: it began with the early days of radio communication and broadcasting, then came the age of telecommunication and now we won’t know what exactly comes hereafter. What is it like to be in a society where people understand each other instantanesouly? I am curious to turn such an idea into reality.
After all, this is something I just want to do. Of course, for many of us, the sheer desire alone won’t cut it: we need words (strong ones at that) capital, people, influence etc. to convince people why we keep doing what we do. But at the end of the day, we do what we do because we just want to do it. Economic or cultural incentives come after.
