NetPlusUltra®-Enabled Digital Rights Engineering, by Daniela BERNDT

Staying Focused

Regardless of the degree of maturity of your life project at this stage, your user experience at the (national) Intranet+Ultra® level (which is supposed to be accessible from a fully localized device) depends on how you will customize your computer in accordance with your specific needs, i.e. on what you will dare to undertake - within legal boundaries - to raise your own awareness of the operating system's potential, while at the same time avoiding the pitfalls thereof.
With this in mind, let us start by projecting ourselves in the right direction (if need be), knowing that not doing so on the highway can do a lot of damage: from a conceptual perspective, an "Intranet+" is defined as a native ecosystem, in which everything (r)evolves around one dedicated purpose. At Apple for example, everything is about the many desktop and mobile variations of macOS (or "Mac OS X" for previous versions), the proprietary operating system built upon the brand's source code. In a second step, let us try to stay consistent, considering that a Renault car dealer is not necessary the most rational choice when it comes to fixing a Peugeot. In other words: to avoid stockpiling defaults in a manner which will progressively deprive you of all guarantees, try to not fall prey to the technocentrist trend of systems hybridization!
With the conceptual process of permanent auditing locked around a specific native purpose, let us now get back to the system's triple requirement of normativity + adaptability = sustainability, and ask ourselves the right questions before adding new options (rear spoiler, air conditioning, tinted windows, etc.): is the decision to install this app rather than another objective (in that it enables to fill a genuine gap in the system), or subjective (i.e a simple matter of taste and colors)? Are the contents concerned of a personal and/or a professional nature (meaning: are they business-critical)?
Empowered with the experience gained at the previous stage, let us move on with the debriefing of the last three years of pre-auditing, in order to shed some more light on the changes which should rapidly be brought to the operating system if we want to straighten up our digital economy at the national level:
  • ASSETS (AFTER)
  • LIABILITIES (BEFORE)
Internet Accounts options of the Mac OS X System Preferences after conceptualization,
i.e. after correction of the "system default" inherent in the prevailing market logic of interconnecting leaking buckets, as entered on the liabilities side of the present balance sheet. The four remaining types of identifiers presented below are webmail accounts corresponding to the successive horizontal throughcuts of step 2 (Externet+), 3 (Intranet+) and 4 (Extranet+), as presented in the main dashboard chart () of the present Testfolio Omega website (please click on a thumbnail to enlarge the view).
  •  v3.0/2020+ (macOS Catalina)

    v3.0/2020+ (macOS Catalina)

  •  v1.0/2016+ (Mac OS X El Capitan)

    v1.0/2016+ (Mac OS X El Capitan)

Screen capture of the "Internet Accounts" options of the "System Preferences" of "Mac OS X El Capitan":
In the El Capitan version of Mac OS X, no distinction is made - at the user interface level - between webmail accounts (such as iCloud, Exchange, Google, Yahoo, AOL), and web-based content hosting services (such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Vimeo, Flickr). Considering therefore that any type of email address (outside of an alias) can be used to create a social network account, the impact on the users' visibility - in terms of transparency - only thickens the plot (please click on a thumbnail to enlarge the view).

If this goal is achieved both at the technical and qualitative levels, here is what the continuous process of added-value integration could be like for every user:
  1. Upon purchase of a computer device, two "native identifiers" would be created using (one of) the official (i.e. authorized) national ISP identifier(s).

  2. The first identifier, your "System ID", would enable you to optimize your technical user experience through the provider’s support desk, with regard to all issues related to the operating system, including the native and third-party apps available for the latter.

  3. The second identifier, your "Cloud ID", would enable you to optimize the qualitative user experience to be shared with all other users of the same natively dedicated "Intranet+", depending on your project-specific return on experience, i.e. on the showcase pertaining to the web contents you are producing with your native equipment.

  4. In this scenario, the Cloud is no longer a duffel bag for everything you keep hoarding "just in case", but rather a "shield" enabling you to safely share your many content-related news feeds.

  5. The generic (ex-works) version of this "Starter Forum" would help you to safely quick-start your personal and/or professional publication projects, in intelligent collaboration with your many (groups of) contacts, i.e. to test-drive your project ideas for feasibility.

  6. The "(NetPlusUltra®) Enterprise+" version thereof would be a conceptual "R&D Showcase" entirely dedicated to the user's business activity, proudly powered by macOS, or Windows, or Android. As the conceptual web shop of the legitimate managing web author thereof, each Cloud would be configured so as to evolve at the pace of a blossoming digital economy.

  7. By virtue of their multi-OS nature, the "Extranet+" accounts would be reserved for all projects which bring together users from different (but no less native) operating system environments.

To achieve this vision of all "hyper-celestial" possibilities, it is urgent to promote the Cloud out of its current vegetative state and into the next level, i.e. to let it rebirth itself by adding the still missing vital features, such as encryption-based DRM locks, web publication options (by reallocating the available storage capacities if the latter are not used for the purpose of storing), and the necessary system-, app- or server-extensions, with a view to enabling the internal referencing of generic user profiles and "Enterprise+" showcases. With such guarantees, all conditions would finally be met for the intelligent intraconnection of users on the grounds of their declared intended uses, through an international "Contacts" directory (such as the "macOS Server" version thereof for example) provided by the editor (Apple for that matter) with a view to connecting its many national-native "Intranet+" networks.
