Okay what with the approach of launch and with the desire to market the SAFE network to the masses I’ve been thinking we should start creating printable hard copy materials to get the word out. Not everyone uses the net, or uses the net a lot. So in a lot of ways it might just be easier to hand someone a piece of paper rather than marketing on social media. Moreover one of the advantages of SAFE is it’s decentralized and can form mesh networks whereas the internet 1.0 can’t. This could be of great importance to those with poor, intermitant, or even non existent internet access. They could set up a local SAFE network and then slowly grow it back to civilization while at the same time using it for their own uses. Also SAFE can be accessed from public access points. Again an important piece of information and impacts many people who may or may not have their own computers, or access to them at the time. SAFE also acts as revenue stream and as permanant data storage. SAFE has all kinds of impacts on society. So yes getting the word out to as many people as possible is very important.
However it’s also important to get accurate information out there. And it’s not enough to just give hyperlinks to information. Such written or graphic materials must, if at all possible, summerize accurate information about the SAFE network. It won’t do any good to misinform people. Links are good but there’s nothing more annoying that having hard copy of any sort that’s riddled with links when you have no access to the internet. Best to have one or two links on the materials that links to a site with lots and lots of other reference material and information links. Then if they have internet they can use it and if they don’t you aren’t wasting space on excessive links they can’t use. Or have a panphlet that is specifically designed as a reference for further internet use.
I’m willing to help create these publications. Whether they go out now or later or whenever is up in the air. We might create a series of them. I mean we have a bunch of information available now that could be converted but when apps start being developed and the network goes live things will start getting really interesting. But what I need are graphics and information sources. I need relevant and accurate information to put on the handouts and graphics as well to help illastrate them. Also someone to review them when they’re written up and make sure the information is clear and accurate. Anyone that wants to help feel free to join in.
