The citizen and data.
How data works in the Republic
User id - Data the cloud
Unlike for-profit networks that house your data on privately owned servers, your information on the Pietra network is stored over the cloud managed by other Pietra Citizens. Each Citizen that is broadcasting private data only has a small portion of that data, and cannot see what that data chunk is. Because of this design we as a Republic protect your data by rights and permissions. These permissions are only unlocked through a civil process in an in-network civilian trial that governs the specifics of your data.
Pietra's Citizen cloud - Data and economy
Pietra creates a robust networking economy. Unlike today's networks which are privately owned and publicly accessed, Pietra's network is an actual public computing platform made up by our citizens. This develops a fair economy and ensures that we have rights for our citizens.
In today's network design, large companies incur high costs due to large servers and to justify that cost they collect your data to sell to companies for a profit or charge brands to advertise. In the Pietra system, Citizens own their personal data and are free to sell it, or not, gaining the profits from their own involvement-- with out ads!
User id - [Self]Data and Design
Design on the Pietra network is done with the Citizens rights in mind. Rather than having your private data stored on a company computer, Pietra Citizen data is designed to be robust and permissive. You control your data, and we design systems from the [Self] model that keeps the Citizen's right central to the design. Citizen first design protects users while still allowing D-istributed APP-lication access in order to create user generated suggestions: to create things like music queues and video suggestions-- with out your data tracked and owned by third parties.
On the Pietra Network a citizen may search for a video using a few different algorithms all based off the users [Self] data-set, yet each unique search tool may weigh certain data points differently to create different results. Every time the citizen uses the other citizens search function, the creator is rewarded ensuring innovation on the platform
User id - Data and Permissions
As a Pietra citizen you track all your own transactions and keep a record of your involvement with the system. This record becomes a digital thumb print and on the Pietra Network this data is yours to control. Since data is truly private on the Pietra network your records are yours to do as you wish, which can even include selling your interactions on the market. Your data is yours, only you have access to it, and it is considered sovereign. No one is collecting mass data to use against you, yet you have control of your data to help create profiles and tailor-made experiences without the loss of privacy.
Social Media, Civil Media, and REPRESENTATIVES
While anyone is free to download a Pietra node, full access to the network will require proof of identification from your community, both online and in-person. Your ID is confirmed and stored in the network to create a unique User-Hash from the confirmed ID assets: Photo, Video, Voice. Combined with the Hashes of your confirmations, you create a unique Citizen-ID that you own and control.
Your first interactions in Pietra will set you up with your initial confirmed Id network reference. This is your Networked Rep: the person who helps in signing-up and confirming you as a new citizen. They can assist you get your bearings, serve as your initial Pietran point of contact, and help you participate in Pietran society. Who knows, maybe you will become a Representative yourself?
