PROPOSAL FOR DEVELOPING A KNOWLEDGE ASSET INVENTORY IN ECUADOR Prepared by Daniel R. Robles, PE, MBA Seattle, WA 98026 T H E I N G E N E S I S T P R O J E C T 15732 70th Ave West, Edmonds, Washington • t e l e p h o n e: 123.456.7890 • www.ingenesist.com
Introduction This proposal outlines a new process for organizing communities which maintains the produc- tive capacity of Capitalism, but without forcing people to compete, which drives communities apart. This proposal is ideally suited for communities who seek to live, work, and trade col- laboratively among themselves and other communities throughout the country, region, and world. The primary objective is to create a knowledge market. The essential components of any mar- ket include 1. Supply and demand, 2. factors of production, 3. accounting system, 4. institu- tions to keep the market fair, and 5. a medium of exchange. This proposal make the Supply and Demand for knowledge assets more visible to a community. This improves the ability of teams to form and to produce the things that people need. This proposal also provide an accounting system so that knowledge assets can be deployed effi- ciently. The P2P (person to person) community residing and meeting in close proximity pro- vide the social capital required secure a fair market. Finally, a community may choose any me- dium of exchange (currency) which suits them in conducting knowledge backed transactions. It is our hope that the people of Ecuador will consider this new form of social and economic organization to pursue their own destiny in the next economic era.

Not All Communities Are The Same Modern economies often forces people to compete with each other in order to keep prices low and keep quality high. A competitive economy requires a strong legal framework, strong en- forcement mechanisms, and increased social programs to care for the vanquished as people compete for increasingly scarce resources. In some ways, Competition is useful to arrive at a solution to a problem, however, it should be recognized that competing is very expensive and may be inefficient for many other types of economic activity. We propose that there may be better way to achieve the same benefits of low prices and high quality for the products that communities need most. Our proposal will help to empower people to collaborate to form their own economic identity solving problems that they prioritize together. The Knowledge Inventory In most countries today, trade is conducted in the “tangible” accounting system. For example; Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is a measurement of the number of cars that are produced, or kilograms of beef harvested, or number os housing units that are built. GDP does not count the things that are preserved, re-used, maintained, authored, shared, given away, or taught. It is our objective to measure this value into existence so that it may be accounted for and in- cluded in the GDP of the community. A true knowledge economy measures the true and total value of knowledge exchanged in a community. Knowledge is abundant rather than scarce; if one person gives their knowledge to another, it does not result in the subtraction of that knowledge from the ‘vendor’s’ inventory accounting ledger. For example; the true value of a bridge across a mighty river is not only the replacement cost of the bridge but also includes the value of the scarce time restored to each member of a community who would otherwise need to find a lengthier or less dangerous means across the river to interact with each other.

The P2P Revolution Modern technology such as the Internet, GPS, and mobile application provide an enormous opportunity to exchange value in ways that were simply not perceivable back when either the theories of the competitive economy or state governed economies were first imagined. What we speak of today as the P2P economy is absolutely new and understandably may bear little resemblance to what we have seen in the past. We extend our congratulations to the people of Ecuador for the willingness to embark on a path that is as unique and diverse as the country itself. Curiosumé The word Curiosumé is derived from the latin noun to “care” and has further meaning in the modern words “curate”, “procure”, and “secure”, etc. And, the French word “résumé” which means a summary of account. Together, Curiosumé refers to a summary of account for a col- lection of assets. In Practice, Curiosumé is intended to replace the Curriculum Vitae as a summary account for knowledge assets in a community. Second, the Curiosumé application will match the supply with the demand for knowledge in a community. Third, Curiosumé will identify likely collabo- rators relative to the things that people care about. Finally, Curiosumé will articulate knowledge assets across the Internet, GPS, and mobile technology allowing people to interact in a productive economy by sustainable collaborative means instead of destructive competitive segregation.

How It Works Curiosumé is a very simple web/mobil application that will perform a very simple function. ✦ The user opens a web page and creates a secure account for themselves. ✦ Curiosumé then addresses Wikipedia (or any wiki) ✦ The user selects articles from the wiki that are relevant to them ✦ At each selection, they are asked to select from 6 categories from learner to teacher ✦ Curiosumé then creates a digital representation of knowledge assets The Ingenesist Project Knowledge Asset Inventory for Ecuador 4
The user repeats this process for subjects that would usually appear on their Curriculum Vitae, school transcripts, or hobbies, interests, or community activities. The user can organize their interests and capabilities in different “personas” or combine them in any way that they choose. For each arrangement that the user creates, the Curiosumé application produces an electronic digital “code” that represents their supply and demand for knowledge assets. This electronic code can then be visualized on a map, combined with other community members., and analyzed algorithmically to predict and promote collaborative economic activity.

For example: 1. Learners represent the demand of a knowledge asset while teachers represent the supply for that knowledge assets producing a proto-economy. Curiosumé can provide this match within a geographic area or within a specific time period, or during an specific event. 2. People who are in the middle of the learner / teacher scale would be collaborators in a spe- cific activity, location, or event. The collaboration of 2 or more people is a representative factor of production for a new P2P economy. The new P2P corporations may arise from this foundation. 3. The natural organization of random events over a sufficiently large sample will form a nor- mal distribution often characterized by a bell curve. Statistical tools now allow the commu- nity to review combined data and for statistical models for what, when, where, and how knowledge assets are deployed, distributed, and combined. 4. Algorithms can then optimize the allocation of knowledge assets to reflect the priorities of the community rather than the priorities of multi-national influences. 5. The results may be then portrayed graphically in any number of ways creating useful visu- alization of what people want to learn, what they want to teach and what they want to make.

Discussion Curiosumé is an analog to digital converter for knowledge asset objects. By moving away from a semantic CV/résumé and moving toward a personal digital API, the trade and exchange of knowledge assets may be machine enabled for matches, proximity, relevance, weight, and prob- abilities of achieving various outcomes. In doing so, the economics of “intangibles” will be- come more efficient. By making knowledge assets visible in an economic system, social entre- preneurs may readily trade and exchange intangible assets much as they do with tangible as- sets. Key Features There are several very specific features that must be integrated in the application in order for Curiosumé to perform its relatively small but important task. These include: Transportability and “Ownership” of the personal API Anonymity until point of transaction - P2P control Multiple personas Combining multiple personae Measuring proxies for economic output, matching, assessing, scenario testing, etc. The Ingenesist Project Knowledge Asset Inventory for Ecuador 8
Proposal Our proposal for Ecuador begins with the organization of the engineering and the technical trades. The work of this group of individuals will support the infrastructure for communities to self-organize around p2p commerce. Where the buildings are safe, energy is sustainable, wa- ter is clean, agriculture is diverse, and transportation is efficient, a community can prosper ar- tistically, socially, and economically. Our objective would be to identify the senior engineers in a community and match them with the junior engineers or others seeking to enter the engineering profession. Social and profes- sional events will bring the groups together Next, we would identify the engineers in a community with similar knowledge and experience, and match them with projects that meet their interest and abilities. Social and professional events will bring these groups together. We would do the same for the trades such as carpenters, pipe fitters, machinery operators, and farmers; first matching senior to junior, then matching similar skills with the communities that need them. Likewise, social and professional events will bring these groups together. Conclusion The primary objective is to create a knowledge market. By making a simple improving on the Curriculum Vitae, Curiosumé provides a community with all of the elements that they would need to create a P2P knowledge market. Application of Curiosumé in Ecuador would serve the specific needs of the Ecuadorian people, their intentions, skills, and priorities for a new economy. All is done without the traditional “corporation” model that is typical in North America. The Ingenesist Project Knowledge Asset Inventory for Ecuador 9
