Why the Afro-Tech Moving Away from Domain Name/Servers towards Crypto-Addresses/Clouds in 2018
In 2018, the 3rd Strategic Institute and Afro-Tech Atlanta family will begin the creative destruction process of the Internet domain addresses paradigm such as .com, .net and all that other stuff. We are moving towards adopting long-form crypto-addresses that can be communicated through short code URL engines similar to Bit.ly, or using QR codes like Bitcoin and even biometric addresses (fingerprint, face, retina) to reach Internet properties in the 21st century.
The current paradigm of looking for a dotcom domain name to register, pay annual fees on that domain out of fear of losing the domain name, fighting some domain hoarder for your domain name or someone else show up with a .net or .info or .us version of your domain name is basically a broken and unnecessary system. Domain addresses just won’t cut it in the Fourth Industrial Revolution where everything from IoT to AI entities are going to need addresses formatted to not be human-readable but for machine-to-machine communication and A2A commerce (where AIs can engage in trading with other AIs on matters like energy/water supply/demand).
Since MySpace and GeoCities decades ago, people and properties already migrated away from the “home page” platform with a johnsmith.com domain name and migrated to profile hosting on platform economy entities such as social media and the cloud. Today, people have Instagram/username or Twitter/username or Facebook/username as their address and to host their data. Commercial operations are either hosting a mobile application on “stores” on the Apple, Android or Windows platform. Web operations are moving to Amazon AWS or Microsoft Azure platforms and can use their domain addresses. So the planned obsolesces is already in play to move away from the dotcom era to platforms and machines.
Our new approach is modeled after our observation and experiences in mobile-centric China and Japan. In Asia, digital activity lean on mobile interactions from NFC taps to QR scans instead of dotcoms and domain system like URLs written in English (a major flaw for the World Wide Web). But there are far more discovery touchpoints especially in China for mobile users to interact with their local community and develop a digital-centric lifestyle. Chinese urban technologists have realized the value of high-density urban cities providing a rich ecosystem for mobile interaction for QR payments to rent bikes, use AliPay or WeChat to reserve a seat at a restaurant or use the public/private transit system.
High-density urban communities are the true lucrative and growth area to be at in the 21st century; not sitting around in Silicon Valley where they over there in Silicon Valley sexually harassing and underpaying women in tech while trying to figure out how the Valley can keep African-American blacks from getting a tech job or acknowledgement in the tech space.
Despite Silicon Valley discrimination activities, we African-Americans recognize our black communities are high-density walkable communities and been that way and our multi-generational lifestyle for over 100 years. So it makes sense for the Afro-Tech to look at the technology solution patterns and practices in high-density urban places like Shanghai, Shenzhen — I noticed there are a lot of Western media propaganda trying to compare Shenzhen to Silicon Valley… mmm..Silicon Valley is just a white flight suburban area layout with corporate parks and subdivisions so comparing Silicon Valley to a megacity like Shenzhen — please.
So in 2018, the Afro-Tech plan to adopt and implement patterns and practices from the true global urban technology innovators over in Asia to also accommodate our high-density urban communities here in America. We will begin building the cryptosystem-based digital tools and platforms to accommodate cryptonomics to shift the focus towards Malcolm Gladwell SoLoMo manifesto of social, local and mobile interaction to establish an urban digital lifestyle ecosystem. We are going to take out that UPC system (article later) and we are taking out the domain/DNS system as well and replacing with cryptosystem addresses that can either be tokenized or static to redirect users towards web-based or digital properties in a just-in-time fashion.
In our implementation, Afro-Tech entrepreneurs no longer need to go fight for a domain name or pick out the right domain name; they just use the existing state-level or national level trademark or service mark registry to protect their trade name and fight it up in the courts when necessary.
Domains are replaced with public key addresses where the address is represented by a QR code for optical interactions or RFID or biometrics for physical interactions. Just like the Bitcoin system — special shout out to all those Bitcoin ATM operations moving into the ghetto to get our poor black folks hip to the QR public key address protocol.
By the way my Bitcoin ATM operator friends; we already showing brothas and sistas in the hood how to use a $50 thermal receipt printer to print out Bitcoin transactions receipts from a mobile phone and take your targeted customers; but hey — thanks for bringing those dumbass Bitcoin ATMs in the hood to help cultivate public key address / QR-centric customer behavior in our poor urban communities.
After obtaining a public key — can use the same key generators used for Bitcoin, we create our own forwarding registry that map these addresses to social media addresses (instagram/username), cloud addresses (azure/sitename) and IP addresses (127.0.0.1) and create a true ecosystem in our urban communities to give urban digital entrepreneurs the ability to quickly get their web-based property up and running on any digital platform they choose. So this allow anybody in the hood who want to have a side-hustle while working a corporate job or anybody in college on a ramen noodle diet to get their digital business up in running in our hoods as quickly as possible with lower cost of operation and cost to startup. Because it will be nothing but urban interaction QR code scanning instead of typing in addresses sitting behind a desktop and because the Afro-Tech conceived the natural language blockchain, we can easily use natural phrases instead of cryptographic public key addresses for forwarding as well.
There will always be some characters talking up objections just to act like they on some better stuff than the Afro-Tech. The first thing they will say is anybody can hijack the process and create phony QR codes or NFC tags like they been doing over in China where digital thieves would place a QR sticker over an existing QR code to redirect payments to their account. We using cryptosystems — people should first learn how public/private key challenges work before running their mouth in a comment section about this approach. Others will say we cannot leverage SSL against IP address web sites — we using blockchain distributed ledgers that are already encrypted, especially for transactions so people need to learn about that technology before running their mouth in the comment section. And others will say anybody can create a QR code anywhere breaking the system — yeah, like anybody can place a Bluetooth beacon in an area leveraging beacon addresses as well but that is why there are applications that filter the correct address, people need to learn about that before running their mouth in the comment section.
The benefits and value of moving towards a cryptosystem-based address is to allow the advent of smart cities, IoT and enable digital entrepreneurs and artificial intelligence systems create the Fourth Industrial Revolution ecosystem in black communities that were divested but architecturally designed for high-density to bring our communities back up and running quickly. We move away from search engines and a list of URLs and move towards digital lifestyle interactions of chatbots, NFC tapping, QR code scanning, biometric recognition and smart devices and messaging brokers in our hoods.
Urban digital entrepreneurs can build up their urban digital businesses as a side hustle to the corporate job or a college tuition payer by plugging into the black community high-density urban ecosystems with little to less startup costs, a true Afro-Tech support structure (we still love you, come back home to your hood) and leverage existing platforms, patterns and practices. Marketing moves beyond knowing domain name URLs, we are looking at trust-based addresses for web-based digital properties to quickly get digital startup names out in these urban communities. Mobile-commerce is moving towards tokenization so that fits well into the overall shift away from ICANN domain stuff.
Keep in mind — we can easily scale out digital operations by adding new cloud servers with a new mapped crypto-address so a startup urban entrepreneur can create a cloud server for Chicago and a separate cloud server for Houston and a separate cloud server for Accra, Ghana and a separate cloud server for our family out there in South London, UK and separate cloud server for our ex-pats out there in Tokyo. We cannot scale out like this using a single dotcom domain name any hacker will try to come at with a denial-of-service attack and we can quickly shut down and ramp up a new cloud server and redirect the addresses behind the QR codes on our end giving us better cyber-security flexibility.
I don’t think I can even describe at the moment the future opportunities on the horizon for the Afro-Tech and this address system but I hope everybody realize we are on a new paradigm shift and if you still out there planning to run around hoarding and buying $10,000 domain names for your digital venture in 2018, LOL on that.
