Zunächst: Der Prueitt ist anscheinend so auf der Gregory-Bateson-Schiene aber der Post-Maturana/Varela - Ära:
Das heisst, Höhere Sphären.
It is proposed that certain scientific and technical work be integrated. This integration could lead to the design and delivery of dedicated emergency response systems. A proposal is needed. This proposal will communicate our desire to perform the following steps:
How human communication can be facilitated in times of crisis?
Specific responses to this inquiry are proposed based on principled science. A principled argument is made that existing lines of IT development are far from optimal and over burdened with proprietary influences. A “second school” of thought about computing and communication is outlined. It is proposed that technology consistent with this viewpoint be funded by the federal government and provided as non-proprietary infrastructure. This infrastructure provides an alternative Internet.
We suggest that emergency response is a natural first application of an infrastructure standard consistent with the second school viewpoint. The capabilities of this infrastructure take into account the importance of the individual in generating and receiving communication. As such the second school defines a transformation of how digital media is used.
A political justification for a large investment by the federal government comes from an examination of the roles of instrumentation and transparence. As a general rule, transparency on any complex or complicated system requires excellent instrumentation. For example, hybrid cars provide driving speeds and measures of fuel consumption and thus better instrumentation.
The current Internet is not instrumented for transparency, and few suggest that the current Internet could be so instrumented.
The desirability of transparency is balanced with the need for privacy and for proprietary interests. A great deal of controversy surrounds natural rights to own property and to preserve privacy. The second school takes the position that digital property can be protected better today by using generative objects with internal instrumentation. This protection of property also allows a different level of control, but this new level of control may come into conflict with natural rights associated with privacy.
