FREE DATA

«Everyone has to be free to give his-her data to the freest pool»

Free data tries to enhace further rights to the ones developed within the scope of Personal Data (or by Mydata or qiyfoundation communities). Granting data to be “personal data” is one step towards freedom, but personal data doesn’t mean that the data is free nor the user is free managing its data, so it is neither personal in strict sense.

Free data tries to specify the needed freedom that there should be in at least 4 different areas of the data management process. By clarifying those principles further we can finally get to have and manage free or really personal data.

Free content: Standards and Categories

 

Free network: Storage and Service

 

Free analysis: Crawling and Suggestions

 

Free culture: Evolution and Sharing

 

Straight-through app: MyFreedom

 

Ownership and privacy

Evolution, the mollecullar thermodynamic complexization is about reasoning about how to transmit information more efficiently. The present people we are today have evolved up to this point due to learning from information that has been revealed to someone who then has transmitted it to others who could understand (information formed as processable –> data) and liked-agreed to that (is regarded as wealthy data by someone else –> knowledge).

Discoveries are revelations of what was already there but was previously unprocessed. We are all part of this underlying quantum mesh that had this same data you read now in every past and every future yet for us to be able to see. Thus, what we call Personal data is anyone revealing a certain processing of some wealthy information.

Data is processable information that can be treated as any other material mean. You need to have full privacy first before giving data to public or to our lovely Data pools or crawlers, just because if you have all rights for not giving anything, anything you give is only or more valuable then.

Free data needs free content, network and analysis

Our Free Data standard extends, as a module, the MyData and Qiy principles. MyData and Qiy have already defined most of the personal rigths for being able to have control and freely donate all your personal data from popular privative networks to other pools where a community of crawlers could let you freely tune the algorithms that play with that. But at MyData there is not an unified aim of what freedom needs to have the data storage, the data crawler or the app that want to play with such MyData. Qiy gets a bit deeper than that by proposing aims that the crawlers should have (free analysis), but it is not interested in showing some sets of features for which aditional contents interactions to promote (free content), and it is neither estating freedom standards for storers and services (free network), which is the gap that something else such as Free Data standards and-or MyFlove applications should fill better.

Free data needs free culture

We are free to decide if our production will be freely accesible by others or not, but we also definetely need a community where the election of making everything freely accesible is taken for granted as a principle (free culture). Since data was already there, and data access brings more data, the freer i am making the data, the more natural flow i am in, and the more data and knowledge we can get for a higher freedom, that we should develop further. The more we free our data, the more freedom is achieved in other layers too.
