I realize that Facebook today is a global success with more than 600 million users worldwide. But I also understand, maybe a bit sadly, that it is not for me.

Proprietary software keeps users divided and helpless. Divided because each user is forbidden to redistribute it to others, and helpless because the users can’t change it since they don’t have the source code. They can’t study what it really does. So the proprietary program is a system of unjust power.

Users and entrepreneurs building new business models off the blockchain means that there are competing interests on how best to scale the network. Linux, also an open source software project, had similar growing pains.
We do various kinds of research during the planning stage.

Since the beginning of HQ Trivia, when only 48 people logged in, the chat section was lighting up with comments such as ‘This is so cool!’ So, we hooked those early users with alluring graphics and sound, a fast-paced test of wits, interactivity with a live and entertaining host, and the lure of winning free money.
Pandemic-proof means the mobile phone has to be used and it has to be used in such a positive way that your next invention has to say, ‘You know what, I am going to get another 30-40-50 million users that are out there onto my product through my mobile phone and that’s going to help me sell what I do.’
The smug complacency of technology adverts disguises a pretty mixed picture, with too many people not connected, too many passive users of technologies designed for interactive, and far too much talk about empowerment but far too little action to make it happen.
Net neutrality is the idea that Internet service providers (ISPs) should treat all traffic that goes through their networks the same, not offering preferential treatment to some websites over others or charging some companies arbitrary fees to reach users.

We have been handing over to them vast quantities of information about ourselves and our friends, loved ones and acquaintances.
To devise an information processing system capable of getting along on its own – it must handle its own problems of programming, bookkeeping, communication and coordination with its users. It must appear to its users as a single, integrated personality.
We know that Google Earth and Google Maps have had a tremendous impact on Google traffic, users, brand, adoption, and advertisers. We also know Google News, for example, which we don’t monetize, has had a tremendous impact on searches and on query quality. We know those people search more. Because we’ve measured it.

Social innovation thrives on collaboration; on doing things with others, rather than just to them or for them: hence the great interest in new ways of using the web to ‘crowdsource’ ideas, or the many experiments involving users in designing services.

From the very first inkling of a concept, founders need to gather a target group of five to ten potential users to begin the feedback loop.
