Soc nets and RTC systems
Currently they are not connected or in the best case loosely (better said lousily) connected …
At some point we will want to have holistic system (RTC with soc net aspect or soc net with seamless and functioning RTC)
Communications, social and anthropological aspect
Dunbar’s number Dunbar's number is suggested to be a theoretical cognitive limit to the number of people with whom one can maintain stable social relationships. These are relationships in which an individual knows who each person is, and how each person relates to every other person. Proponents assert that numbers larger than this generally require more restrictive rules, laws, and enforced norms to maintain a stable, cohesive group. No precise value has been proposed for Dunbar's number. It has been proposed to lie between 100 and 230, with a commonly used value of 150. Dunbar's number states the number of people one knows and keeps social contact with, and it does not include the number of people known personally with a ceased social relationship, nor people just generally known with lack a persistent social relationship, a number which might be much higher and likely depends on long-term memory size.

What do current social networks remind me on?
Privacy Business model Mighty leader … Similarities are striking … Current status examined
OK, let ’s try to model things a bit …
Address book is being reinvented
Buddy Lis or Friends List Address book <ul><li>Somewhat personal </li></ul><ul><li>Co-created with the people I like and not necessarily like </li></ul><ul><li>Not everyone that I communicate the most is on the list </li></ul><ul><li>No segmentation nor privacy </li></ul><ul><li>.. </li></ul><ul><li>Personal </li></ul><ul><li>Created by me </li></ul><ul><li>Most of my communications time is spent with the people on the list </li></ul><ul><li>Better segmentation of the different character of groups </li></ul><ul><li>Legacy systems support </li></ul>Address book is personal, matters more and after all I have created it! . Conclusion SCENE Comparison to Buddy lists and friends list Address book û
Numbers and addressing, quo vadis?
Numbers - evolution track Mobile and fixed number versus private and group number Numbers – evolution path Fixed number Personal Biz Personal Private Group Biz Group private Mobile number
Group number - proliferation <ul><li>Group numbers morphing into group addresses </li></ul>Business group number Other group (biz) Other group (private) … . Private group number (family number)
After all, how do we communicate?
Natural comms escalation <ul><li>Mode of communication will depend on the closenes of the participants, context and content of the conversation </li></ul>
Sa said before … At some point we will want to have holistic system (RTC with soc net aspect or soc net with seamless and functioning RTC)
With proper privacy and where decent part of the earned money can be distributed to real creators of the value …
Our first step to make things better …
