DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

Electricity has helped to liberate humanity from chattel slavery by being cheaper

In just hundreds of years we went from the era of chattel slavery, which was what we had just prior to and just after the Civil War. In this era human beings were made to work in fields doing physical labor. The reason that slavery in this sense ended was because of technology. Technology such as the steam engine and electricity which led to the industrial revolution. The field slave was replaced by the factory worker, and eventually the factory worker was replaced by the office worker. The trend right now is to replace the office worker with the virtual worker and robot worker.

The dollar being backed on petroleum or other scarce natural resources means that eventually wars have to break out all over the world to determine the distribution of the natural resources. The nation which has the most control over the natural resources (due to having the strongest military) typically is the nation with the strongest economy. The nation with the strongest economy typically chooses to export their values, morality, laws, and with that their corruption, because certain corporations and business models get protected to protect the national dominance of certain critical resources. This is not usually a democratic process because corporations decide unilaterally to form cartels, syndicates, associations and then they hire lobbyists to get specific laws which pass in their business interest. These practices corrupt the market by giving unfair monopoly advantages to companies which receive government contracts or who pass laws to protect their profitability. The result of a blend between politics and business which does not benefit democracy and which in fact weakens it over time.

From field slavery, to factory worker, to office worker, to what?

It's now 2013 and we are about to approach a paradigm shift even greater than the birth of the Internet. This shift is a result of the work of Claude Shannon who is the father of the digital revolution. We now are beginning to see the birth of cryptographic finance, digital coins, decentralized banks, all disruptive technologies but all which will result in a more secure system in the long term. The security of this new system will depend on the security of the energy grid (not the block-chain). If electricity is cut off then the block-chain wont matter very much, so the smart grid has to be about decentralized electricity.

The industrial revolution led to the salary man concept, the American dream concept of the house with the picket fence, the concept of social security, the concept of public education, none of which existed prior to the industrial revolution. The digital revolution has lead to concepts such as artificial intelligence, the web, anything-on-demand, always on/always connected, virtual property, digital content, and more, but until recently we did not have a truly decentralized digital currency to kickstart the next revolution in human history.

These new changes will change who we are culturally, and it is commonly called 3D3C. Once we have 3D3C the next phase will kickstart, and 3D3C will usher upon us all sorts of new concepts and lifestyles which currently are unimaginable for the majority of politicians in charge today. The laws will not be able to keep up with the technology anymore because the lawmaking process is too slow and cumbersome to remain useful in a fast moving fast changing world. What is 3D3C? 3C is community, creation and commerce while 3D is the virtual reality world augmented in 3 dimensions and superimposed upon the real world. Google glasses for example will allow for anyone to interact with a virtual world in 3D from within the real world. Google glasses will allow alternate reality game designers to augment reality and turn it into a game by gamifying it. When 3D3C occurs then everything will start to change, and we are starting to see the beginning of this with iMax and the 3D TV craze. We will continue to see more of this with Google glasses and Oculus Rift.

3D3C combined with emerging technologies such as BCI (brain to computer interface) will change who we are.

At the same time that 3D3C begins kickstarting, we will also see the brain to computer interface become a commercial reality. The price of this technology will become cheaper, and due to Moore's law it will also become more effective. Human thoughts will eventually be able to control the machines which will result in a trans-humanist new definition of what a person is. The computer will become part of the person, and their thoughts will be their speech. Free speech will become a human right as a result of this, because human beings cannot control their thoughts. Cultures influence the thoughts of human beings by influencing the subconscious. We will have to adapt by accepting the darkest side of human thinking as normal, and it will seriously test our rigid moral systems which were based on assumptions about the true nature of humanity rather than based on what actually is.

3D printing will also come online and change the nature of physical reality. Virtual objects will become physical objects through the use of 3D printers. Completely automated seed-factories will come online and allow for even more. The combination of seed factories when combined with crowd funding and cryptocurrencities like Bitcoins will physicalize anything-on-demand. You will be able to make anything on demand through crowd funding at some point in the future if the seed factories (completely automated factories) become a reality. It also means companies like Foxxconn run their factories with robots which means the factory jobs will no longer exist in exchange for this progress.

3D3C when combined with cryptocurrencies, BCI, virtual reality augmentation technologies like Google glasses, 3d printers,seed factories, and artificial intelligence which continuously improves, everything in society will be changed by this. The concept of work will change, the concept of money will change, the question of whether or not person hood exists will be asked along with what a person is if it does exist and this will change our moral thinking. Cognitive liberty will become a concept which gains more traction as well.
