servicing the international digital ecosystem development

The deployment of the international digital ecosystem is granular. It results from two seemingly opposing logics. One is the concatenation into a single homogenous continuity. The other is the constantly renewed partition of this continuity into various national, cultural, lingual, local, economical, professional, community, private, etc. etc. relational spaces.

Both of these logics require:

  • identity: without appropriate, common technical simplification, concatenation is at risk of being blocked by complexity and partition can result in balkanisation. Identity addresses the purpose of the digital networks: to support human exchanges; to assist computer productivity in a clearly identified and protected framework.
  • universality: there must be an organised global service continuity supporting equal access and opportunity of usage whatever the point of access, technology, language, applications, services to the relation, etc.
  • subsidiarity: this means that every real and virtual network governance entity will respect the duties of the others, towards their own constituents, while their common intergovernance will strive to assist their independence as much as is required and no more than is required.

The hysteresis of the joint evolution of their technical, societal, economical and political aspects is important: it means that progress will usually result from the common acceptance of small visionary changes, often introduced decades beforehand. Furthermore, those failures might be the perverse effects of decisions taken, or imposed, for reasons long-forgotten when they finally, hit the world community.

An independent applied researcher and a project investor, JFC Morfin was involved at a very early stage in the history and in the governance of the international network. He was able to explore the seeds of its evolution well in advance. He wants to catalyse this evolution, in synergy with the governmental administrations, members of SSDOs, international associations, private concerns, etc. which he relates to or is associated with.

Moreover, he is able to do so because he is being concerned by a common global interest: which he identifies with a sustainable, multilateral and equal opportunity development.

He feels that this can only result from a multilingual, granular, user-centric architecture. This architecture will be able to support sovereign national, cultural, lingual, community, local, private governances. It will be perceived by the users, together with their own standalone network/home network (
SNHN), as a sure, secure, private, and intelligent continuity of extended services to their interrelations. The prototype of such an evolution towards a multilateral and interoperable concerted technological consensus is the Multilingual Internet where he is active.

JFC Morfin is engaged in the development of such an architecture, and in the active defence of the interests of its the network users.
