I have to agree with Sleipnir. And trust me if I say that I have less knowledge in ICT, but more than average I would say. Still, this concept is either too complicated or (despite many brave attempts) not explained in a language that most people will understand. It’s a professor trying to show children the greatness of Einstein’s theory of relativity. But I fully understand, I’m an engineer and also used to find it hard teaching operators our machines.
Although I successfully deployed my first r620 diy 3node today, I’m still trying to find out how to use it now.
Since I’m a business owner in Europe as well as in West Africa I even signed up to help selling and advertising 3nodes and provide support and services. No response on my submission.
Our strongest asset is that we are able to convince people and persuade them to participate. But if I have a hard time explaining it in simple language, that will be impossible.
The way I see it is this; if we imagine 3 sort of people regarding understanding of ICT, I would say there’s a top layer of less than 0,5% that has a lot of knowledge and amongst are the threefold builders. Then there’s my estimation of 50% of the worlds population who it should be explained to in a simple way for them to participate and the remaining 49,5% will never learn or use it. For threefold to become successful they need a big chunck of the middle 50% which is were guys like me come in. But only 1) if I fully understand so I can explain it to others and 2) have something to show. (and get a reply to my 3node partnership request)
I have spend over a week now jumping from forms to wiki to youtube and back trying to grasp it and again, you need guys like me to understand to be able to ventilate and make it grow.
Last; I thank you all for setting this up!. I came across threefold while reading and helping setting up society 4.0. Decentralized internet, food supply, currencies etc. Great way to go, let’s make the world a better place.
