NetPlusUltra®-Enabled Digital Rights Engineering, by Daniela BERNDT

Multidimensional Separation of Concerns and Conceptual Separation of Powers

With the thorny problem of mixed internet account types (raised in the previous section) half solved by the distinction which should be made between webmail and social accounts, the time is right - as we approach the conceptual tipping point between the horizontal and vertical matrix throughcuts (which split our global digital economy into consumption liabilities that must be compensated for by production assets) - to reintroduce the multi-dimensional array of web services in general terms, with a view to redefining the latter as well.
Starting from the initial understanding thereof, which defines the web service as an array of computer protocols enabling network-based communications and data exchange - an all too technical view which should be translated into a concrete, i.e. dedicated, matrix of user experiences - the conceptual approach consists - more than ever - in rethinking it all in terms of intended use(s). Accordingly, the following web services can be provided for general public use, in addition to the webmail identifier which lays the legitimate groundwork for all actions of the self-authoring user: online postal services, online banking, IP telephony, IP television, web hosting, and online reservation services of all sorts.
Considering that the economic goal remains to straighten up the global digital economy in a (conceptual) way which does not impede on the socio-economic mobility of legitimate users, this is the place to introduce another - more subtle - distinction between such users who derive their benefit from the internet (the professional producers), and those who sustain a living from non-digital activities (the consumers), knowing that the first do not network in the same way as the others, most certainly because of the contractual nature of the social network platforms (cannibal by design), which enables the latter to capture and appropriate value before it is even produced, by taking advantage of the fact that a lot of credulous socionauts agree to the Terms of Use without even reading them.
Building upon the conceptual logic of introducing improvements at each new level of aggregation, let us now get back to the "separation of powers as applied to system administration" imperative, which I introduced on slide 4/6 () of my Dashfolio 2015, in order to complete the initial version thereof in accordance with the many subsequent status updates I published as part of my permanent auditing rationale, and take a closer look at the implications of such a consolidation in terms of operating system upgrades:

i.e. after integration into the system of the triple distinction to be made between Intranet + Extranet = Externet environments, as presented in the present Testfolio Omega (please click on a thumbnail to enlarge the view). While the "Intranet+" level authorizes only native downloads from the Mac App Store, the "Extranet+" level extends this authorization to third-party apps from the Mac App Store as well, whereas the "Externet+" level is reserved for franchised members providing "outside-in" migration solutions to the (outside) internet of social networks. The "System Map" presents an overview of Planet+Ultra® after redeployment of the existing internet into a conceptual "Externet+Ultra®"-enabled franchising system. Without pretending to be 100% (human) error-free, the map clearly shows how much computer safety requires nothing more than proper conception!

The first level of safety, which I coined "Mac 1", authorizes only downloads from the Mac App Store, without however drawing a clear line between native and third-party apps, which leaves the user confronted with a legal void when the download is motivated by the necessity to manage critical contents. The second level of safety ("Mac 2") authorizes downloads from identified developers, but from outside the Mac App Store, i.e. without the level of guarantees that only an entirely native configuration can provide. As for the third level of safety ("Mac 3"), it could be renamed the "hara-kiri configuration", as it authorizes blind downloads from anywhere.

Taking into account that the priority for a self-respecting surfer confronted with the necessity to integrate all parameters of the situation is to not miss the wave, i.e. the strategic tipping point that must be passed so as to not get caught in a massive roll-over effect, I will square this argument with a review of the successive steps to be taken as part of the following productive redeployment process, which is devised to lay the groundwork for a future matrix-based self-regulation of the internet system:
  1. Upgrade of all international directives in direction of official internet market operators in each country.

  2. Implementation of the normative-adaptative webmail-identifier model introduced at the "Externet+" level.

  3. Upgrade of all existing operating systems, according to the official ISPs in each country.

  4. Implementation of the "Intranet+ Cloud Identifier" presented at stage 3, in order to empower the user to develop and customize his·her own scalable R&D lab.

  5. Implementation of the "Multi-OS Extranet+ Identifier" presented at stage 3, in order to empower "Intranet+" users to publish, share, and collaborate on web contents intended for users of other native OS environments.

  6. Progressive redeployment of all official OS-based App Stores, according to the dehybridization strategy presented in the above accounts sheet.

  7. Progressive redeployment of web services, according to the requirements set forth above.

After successful completion of this redeployment, all conditions would finally be reunited for the conceptual (i.e. master franchise-enabled) development of applications, web services, and digital contents at large, in full compliance with the European code of intellectual property, whose provisions are to be understood in terms of "all rights reserved to the author (by default)". In other words: it is only after a web author has satisfied the proof-of-integrity requirement, by publishing his·her specifications to his·her target audience - a project which can only succeed through compliant feasibility testing - that an application providing secured in-app access to the included web service will be considered integratable, and if necessary, added to the catalog of a specific official App Store, or to all official App Stores of the market.
