When we started Outhink we felt Web 2.0 could have been defined to better serve our social interactions to satisfy a personal set of needs, not by a business trying to commercialize those interactions for the gain of the shareholders of the business. Having come from running a public company there is nothing I have against that, but we can do better. We created one of the first decentralized networks and cloud platforms after we had spent many months interviewing dozens of experts in management, economics, business, non-profits, education and more working with Intel and others. We learned a lot from our efforts in defining what problems could be solved when there were not constraints in how we connected with others to get things done. We called this SPIN.
SPIN stood for Secure Personal INternets. What could our experience be between us and those around us in small groups of people interacting together to get things done? We modeled several use cases and set out to build one of the first Cloud Platforms for real time communications to share content experiences within social networks. At that time every business had built walls around the business with VPN’s that required IT to let someone in. That sure was a hassle for those that wanted to connect. This constrained a lot of use cases for these social interactions. We were working with the President of Intel’s team to advance their key objectives and Innovated dozens of new approaches to creating content and experiences. We had a breakthrough while doing this that informed us of a way to overcome the security constraints while maintaining the security needs of the business. We solved this problem. We developed patents around the needed hand shake for bi-directional communications. It is the underpinning of Crypto with DeFi, tokens and web sockets. We just licensed our core patents to several of the major software leaders. More on this going forward.
Being from Silicon Valley we learn that many problems have been with us for most of humanity, we just have new technologies and tools to solve them. This drives so much of what brings some of the best engineers together to solve these problems. I helped build out the technology industry that powered the global economy through several generations of advanced technology. The problems we solve together are no longer constrained by geography or by existing institutions and for that matter technology. This is disruptive to the core of our economy and the good thing is we so many more resources with the skills to solve the problems of the day as long as we don’t let the weaponization of this overwhelm that positive opportunities ahead. More on this going forward.
We will be sharing more around what problems we care to focus on in order to move the needle as we come together to get things done while improving the experiences that get us there.

We are a business foundry as we believe there are Innovative ways needed to build business for social and commercial interests. If this is done well it will help contribute to a better work/life balance for all Stakeholders. Can we place technology with a seat at the table in solving some of these problems? In support of us, but not at the center of our experience? This will provide us as humans more space to be ourselves and find our potential. It is critical we recognize that we have the technology and tools that are now available to build things in new ways, express our creativity to Innovate solutions. That can be fun. The rate of change is accelerating with every new generation of technology and we need to come together and provide leadership in solving these problems together. More on this going forward.
