servicing the international
digital ecosystem development
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
- 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.
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
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.
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.
