Ahh, this explains why I'd have problems gaining details on the initiative what wasn't some consortium of shady marketing enterprises.

This part of Princton's "Global Consciousness Project"? or some other initative?

Mar 4, 17 / Ari 07, 01 15:12 UTC


The initiative name was correct when it was posted. It is not NOOsphere but NEOsphere.

Thanks though!

Kind regards,
Rebekah Berg, Lead Community Administrator, Asgardia

It says the Announcement 2017A Round document was trashed by owner.

Edit: Nevermind, it is only giving me this message when I try to view it on a mobile.

Okay then, my original question still stands.


Mar 6, 17 / Ari 09, 01 17:06 UTC



Mar 6, 17 / Ari 09, 01 17:52 UTC

Although rendering it slightly less cryptic, it still doesn't divulge it's purpose, intent, or how this is intended to be achieved.

NEOsphere Initiative Large initiative currently under base construction to be present in April 2017B round for community review and input. Further details will be released as the initiative becomes for realized.

More info will be posted. There's lots going on, and I can only imagine what this will entail as a project. Can't wait to find out more when it gets released.

Mar 6, 17 / Ari 09, 01 18:15 UTC

I can only speak as an Asgardian, but any sort of documentation about specifics of what is being talked about would be nice.

I mean, I can read the above, but that is more of an executive summary than specifics. As a details-oriented person, I would like to know more, but find myself stymied on several fronts to try to collect information, let alone disseminate any.

Mar 6, 17 / Ari 09, 01 18:54 UTC

Pasting the previously posted information would only be of use if for some reason I had failed to notice it's existence - and as my question specifically relates to it's existence we can safely conclude this is not the case. Thankyou for wasitng my time and yours.

Some sort of specifics would be nice - especially if you would be expecting us to stand behind these initatives then we would need to be incredibly comfortable with what they are trying to do, and how they intend to go about it. At least knowing what it is would be a good start.

Mar 6, 17 / Ari 09, 01 20:28 UTC


Let me explain to you the situation as I see it, so you can understand where we (non-staff Asgardians) are coming from.

Asgardians: We want to know more.
Staff: We have shared everything we can share, because it is all that's been decided upon.
Asgardians: Who decided on it?
Staff: We did.
Asgardians: Who is we? Who are the decision makers? What are their qualifications?
Staff: Uhm.... Anybody want to field this? looks at other staff
Asgardians: We want to know more.
... repeat.

Right now, you are asking for Asgardians to have faith that their leaders are doing things right, and for the right reasons. The unfortunate truth is that no one here knows you (Jason) from Rebekah (except that that sounds like a girl's name) from Igor, from anyone else. We can look up Igor's qualifications, but the rest of you are ghosts in the machine, which leads to uncertainty, anxiety, and unrest.

So, it isn't a matter of impatience or rancor (at least, not for most of us), it is anxiety of the unknown.

Hence my desire for staff interviews, and a severe need for better communications (not articles, actual communications), which is also something I am trying to facilitate. I may not always be the best communicator of feelings (per my wife), but when it comes to everything else, I am usually dead-on. I am asking to help you members of staff communicate to Asgardians effectively, and truthfully, so things do not implode here. This is too good of a project to implode due to poor communications.

Do you guys post minutes of your meetings anywhere? So we can see what's going on? Anything? Throw us a bone here, man!

Mar 6, 17 / Ari 09, 01 23:45 UTC

Good point...

Lets get back to the topic of the post, what is the "NEOsphere initative"?

Because the only thing I can see appears to be a consortium of "marketeering companies" collating various data and training "AI" to be acting on wide and varied datasets to produce specific results.

Mar 7, 17 / Ari 10, 01 18:24 UTC

Hi EyeR!

As stated before, more details will be released about NEOsphere after the initiative foundation has been finalized. There is no sense in releasing something that is half finished. As it is, we are uncertain whether or not we will be able to make the April date for the 2017B initiative run.

I will remove it from the list and if it becomes more realized then it will be added again.

Kind regards, Rebekah Berg, Lead Community Administrator, Asgardia

I'm not suggesting you release it.

Just some basic details on what it actually is. What it's supposed to be doing, and how it's supposed to be going about doing it. Without doing that, you might as well of not bothered to highlight it's existance for what use it is. It would save people like me digging into the "wrong" thing(and what I've been digging into looks really wrong).

Being unfinished is more of a reason to be public about such, it's possible someone might have something useful towards it.
