Information and Knowledge

-- written by askender in Anwen Team

A brief history

We care about knowledge sharing. It makes us happy. So we use language, book, Internet, www/w2c, Wikipedia, Github, Arxiv, IPFS, Web3, etc.

We care about knowledge storage. It makes us can talk to genius in old times and the future. There are too many 404, so we use stone, FileCoin, etc.

We care about knowledge-creating. People are struggling for money (which can be used to buy basic resources and time to create). People are too painful to create. We try to give money to creators and sharers as much as we can. No good tools. Money is in rich guys. So I create Anwen and use LikeCoin and other payment to support creators and sharers.

Imagine a world in which everyone has enough resources. People have time trying to find what they love. People share anything without a burden. In that world, I will only be watching, reading, listening, thinking, creating. In that world, I will research artificial intelligence happily.

I work in NLP(Natural Language Processing) and Artificial Intelligence areas for years. I wrote some papers and products. I think it is a good tool for us. But the world is becoming more centralized.

I want to speedup decentralization. I will work for my dream directly. Even I still don't have enough resources and will very poor if I am unlucky.

About the dream?

Anwen, support creators, and sharers. We will give them money. We help people finding what they love intelligently and efficiently.

Where is the money come from?

  • Lovely readers of our platform/community, Angel investors, people who support Web3/IPFS/decentralization.
  • I will sell our open-source platform/community software to business users.
  • Hackers, geeks, dreamers, idealists

In the end

  • Let's create a more decentralized world which is interesting.
  • To be or not to be, It is a problem. No longer.
  • Time is not enough for love. Hack the world.

As a normal user and creator

  • use wallet(wallet-address and private_key) offered by sharer/retrieve-miner/publisher (donot storage too much coin in that)

  • use ipns private_key offered by sharer/retrieve-miner/publisher (change to a opensource client is better)

  • use publish system offered by sharer/retrieve-miner/publisher (change to a opensource client is better)

As a sharer/retrieve-miner/publisher

  • offer better service of ipns(on-filecoin) and user experience

  • should never delete wallet addresses in an article

  • should never change content in an article

  • can append wallet address as a sharer/retrieve-miner/publisher (people may send filecoin as gift too)

As a content-ecosystem-protector

  • watch sharer/retrieve-miner/publisher and diff ipns content

  • if found abuse of author's article, such as delete wallet addresses and change content, protector will open the information, and marked it as bad-ipns

  • notify ipfs-node delete bad-ipns and filecoin-node stop fast retrieve of bad-ipns
