A Message From kidOYO

The Secret Document That Transformed China by and JACOB GOLDSTEIN For NPR

This is a very worthwhile read.

I am an American, raised in New York and Virginia, during the 1970's, 80's, 90's, Y2K, 9.11.01's... and now in the 2010's. Cold wars, wars on ~ism's, recessions, down-sizings, no child left behind... I get it. Typically, I just keep on doing my thing.

I am a Dad now though. An American father that has taken a fairly unusual path in his life of skill and experience acquisition. A dad that knows how to change his world... and wants to teach kids how to do it too. A dadapreneur with datapreneur aspirations.

I grew up with Pong, Apple IIe, Intellivision, Atari, Colecovision, Commodore 64, and software environments where data was manipulated and statistics were tracked. I have been visualizing digital data my entire life. Nintendo 64, PS2, Xbox, PS3, DS, iPad, Android, Arduino... my kid is going to move a light year beyond what Society thinks it is... within only the next 10 years.

I am organizing everything I am doing as a father, teacher, student and mentor at kidOYO. I have beliefs about data in a digitally formatted administrative ecosystem. I am passionate about law and the order of freedom and security. I am intent on the study and development of ownership practices and philosophies. I am committed to the ideas of survival and prosperity. kidOYO is an embodiment of all of this, with the very specific goal of changing the world via technology with the following notion:

In a world that makes decisions based on social and financial capital, a kid needs to navigate their education as owners, not customers. A kid needs to learn self-reliance, even if they choose to receive customer services once-in-awhile. Kids need to be guided towards the most empowered and intelligent outcome by the system that manages their development, so they may participate with trust, confidence and understanding within the Society that they are but a cog within. A kid deserves leadership... real leadership... not manipulation based on the opportunity that can be found and harvested from every Human life.

kidOYO is an idea set on fire for the world to experience in an entirely new way. Like the secret document that transformed China in the story above, personal sovereign empowerment is the stuff champions are made of, and it is the stuff that resilient communities are made of.

Around this Nation, in every backyard, kids within this data-driven technology-enabled world should be organized philosophically and administratively as sovereign owners.

The transactional model is simple; we are all born as opportunity, with opportunity. A baby is an opportunity to love and cherish. Our data administration of babies via their identities must speak to this love and opportunity structure. Our data philosophies must change to keep pace.

The Universe is the same for each of us; open opportunity is everywhere! Life gives us each sovereign ownership of our lives, the energies that move them, and the opportunity to become Human in the time and space of your life on this planet.

Good luck.
