There is no free society without a free flow of information. Borg’s Mission is to ensure that there are no haves and have not’s when it comes to information.
We envision a world where no single-point of failure institutions dictate what’s trustworthy and what’s not. Instead, the quality of information is assessed bottom-up in a collective emergent process.
This is how it used to be when we still lived in villages. We think that for the first time, it’s possible to create technology to help us return to this natural state while preserving and enhancing the benefits of the modern, globalized society.
People are like websites in that they interconnected. These connections can be modeled mathematically like Google did with websites. A social graph is a mathematical representation of these connections.
You do not have to take our word for it
you can go to hive.one, find a community you know and check how accurate the mapping is.
Benefits of the technology
A community is not confined to a single social media platform. A community is a collection of relationships between people and these can form on multiple platforms and beyond. Social graphs exist not only on social media platforms, but also in podcasts, academic papers, meetups etc.
Interoperability & Decentralized Social Media
The SEO Flywheel
Google benefited from the SEO flywheel: the more people use Google → the more incentive for websites to optimize to be easier to index them → the better the search engine works → more people use it. We expect a similar effect to the place between Borg and social media platforms.
We index the social graph just like Google indexed the Web
Instead of building one product ourselves, we are opening access to the index so that it can be used by thousands of products
We started by indexing Twitter, gradually expanding to other social graphs
