Rank ideas and make them real
The oo.computer is a transparent system to contextualise and rank ideas with others.
It offers those who signal value in ideas and contexts a share of profits that arise from them.
Users have full and intuitive control over information filtering.
"oo" is pronounced as in vroom, boom, zoom and moon
To increase the quality and growth-rate of humanity’s idea space
To help individuals evaluate ideas
To make valuable ideas come true
All information filtering under user control
Contributors share in profits
Transparent and verifiable
Easy to start and fun to use
The imaginary structure in which ideas are arranged
Every idea creates a new context for other ideas.
An "oo" is an idea in a context.
Each oo creates a prospective context for other ideas.
The context, idea and prospective are mathematically related digital numbers. Learn more
The context, idea and prospective are each 256bit numbers.
The distance parameter of an oo is the number of contexts between it and the zeroth oo.
The context, idea, prospective and distance are inter-related using XOR and bit rotate functions as shown below (type in box above to test):
Value signals are an independently verifiable public commitment to pay the initiators of an idea and its contexts
Value signals include a commitment to pay past value signallers via the oo.computer profit share mechanism.
Signallers have unique numbers (called public keys) represented by rhombus icons like these:
The oo.computer uses a set of template signals including INIT, CLAIM, TRANSFER, VALUE, DISCARD, INVOICE, RECEIPT, VERSION, and HACKED
Signallers store their signals in a local-first append-only log (blockchain) using the Hypercore Protocol
Signallers share their signals with a Distributed Hash Table, using Hyperswarm
A signaller's part of the Idea Value Tree is derived from their VALUE and DISCARD signals

Filters are groups of value signallers.
Filters determine which parts of the Idea Value Tree are presented.
Only ideas and contexts that have value signals from the filters are displayed.
Filterer weightings are presented across the bottom of the screen as a bar-chart:
To change the weighting of a filterer, a user signals value in the filterer.
You choose who chooses what you see
The most valued idea comes to the fore.
The rank of an idea depends on the proportion of value signals it received from each filter.
An indication of the relative value ascribed to an idea is given by the coloured bandings around its icon.
Profit Entitlement Tokens (fixed token supply) awarded to value signallers
A portion of PETs are redistributed every week
System starts with Full Redistribution, FPETs, (100% redistribution per week) and transitions to Partial Redistribution, PPETs, (0.25% redistribution per week)
The mechanism design uses signal chains to verify profit share calculations during payment (gates)
