Introduction (Tasmania)

  • Pre-requisites: Wisdom.to 'Home page' ; 'Third Industrial Revolution' documentary trailer (2m23s)
  • The challenges for Tasmania are outlined in the annual 'Tasmania Report 2016'. Challenges include demography, a small population of approximately 500,000 people and concerning health, education and other social outcomes (relative to Australia) and concerns that the net flow of funds from the Australian Federal Government may be reduced. The report highlights the need for a dramatic increase in productivity to improve living standards and meet various challenges outlined in the report.
  • The Tasmanian 'Third Industrial Revolution' strategy primarily focused on the Network Society. Network Society is one of 4 elements of the Third Industrial Revolution and is a key enabler for the other 3.
  • The Second Industrial Revolution platform used the society to organise is unable to resolve key challenges, or provide the jump in productivity essential to a life in Tasmanian living standards.
  • The 'Tasmania Third Industrial Revolution' strategy which provides a jump in productivity (including Aggregated Efficiency, or system efficiency) and pursues 'Society Growth' (encompassing 30 factors encompassing organisation, wisdom, capital and satisfaction). The underlying technologies of Tasmania shift to horizontal, lateral, distributed networks where society's things are organised in 'Digital Twin" in networks. Everyone has access to everything everywhere. With every thing in networks, action on things include 'wisdom (of crowds)', blockchain (secure transactions and immutable audit trails), collaboration and real-time wisdom (knowledge and prioritised action) of crowds.
  • Organising society by moving physical 'things' to large organisations has significant costs including fragmentation, silos, declining and negative productivity, large infrastructure investments (roads, buildings), high resource usage, high administrative overhead and the inability of society and people to participate, contribute or collaborate with those things and each other. Significant benefits accrue by moving virtual things, or 'Digital Twins', in networks encompassing every thing as a means to organise 'Productive Knowledge' and society.
  • The 'Tasmanian Society Growth Strategy' provides a horizon strategy and provides a catalogue of critical strategic projects on the critical path to Network Society. The focus is projects that empower citizens.
  • Luxembourg (population: 582,000) has released a 'Third Industrial Revolution Strategy' that may serve as a model for Tasmania.
  • The strategy is a work in progress. Contribution and feedback welcome. A quality first version anticipated mid January 2018. A Weekly 'Roundtable' will be established to educate, involve, seek contribution and guide implementation. The first 8 meetings will focus on education and design of the strategy. Subsequent 'Roundtables' will focus on implementation. This summary will be revised continuously.

NOTE: The presentations are designed to be read like a flipbook (not presented). Each slide summarises a single 'thing' within our themes (methodology, research, technology, venture, sector and country. Contribution of single slides welcome. Embedded real-time versions of presentations include full screen ([Esc] to exit full screen) and a laser pointer.

TCCI Tasmania Report - purpose

The TCCI Tasmania Report is an annual report prepared by Saul Eslake in collaboration with Tasmananian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (TCCI).

TCCI web site extract::

"Researched and prepared by world-renowned economist, Saul Eslake, the report and events will:

  • Discuss the current condition of the Tasmanian economy and document the extent of progress, or lack thereof, towards agreed long-term economic and social goals.
  • Incorporate an analysis of a series of short-term economic indicators to provide a ‘snapshot’ of the Tasmanian economy.
  • Discuss Tasmania’s performance, based on annual data from the ABS State Accounts, plus similar gauges for social indicators such as educational participation and attainment, health outcomes, community safety etc.
  • Provide an assessment of the State Government’s fiscal position, based on the final results for the preceding financial year and the Budget for the current financial year.
  • Provide discussion of policy options that would foster improvements in Tasmania’s performance in some or all of the above areas."

What are we doing now? How you can help?

  • Society Growth: We are developing a 'Tasmanian Third Industrial Revolution (strategy). Join our project team, align your organisation's strategy and contribute a 1 page summary of your initiative.
  • Tasmanian 'Internet of Things' network:
    1. Community Network: we are establishing a community of LoRa Gateways and connecting them to 'The Things Network'. You can build a LoRa Gateway for $200, or purchase one for $300, and connect it to 'The Things Network'. This provides LoRa free data for you house, property, farm and surrounding community for 2-10km. You can attend 'Tasmanian IoT Meetup' or the IoT course to learn more.
    2. Devices: You can build a LoRa connected sensor to measure data (temperature, humidity, proximity etc) for your property. Help us build our sample projects - IoT flower ($50-100) and place them on your property and share the data via 'Things Network'. Attend a 'IoT Tasmania meetup' to learn more.
  • Roundtable discussions: Our weekly "Third Industrial Revolution' meetup will invite discussion and contribution around key themes with the objective of completing the 'Tasmanian Third Industrial Revolution' (strategy) presentation after 8 weeks. More meetup details available shortly.



Projects / Teams

Structured around the 9 elements of the 'Network Society Technology Stack' and the objective of 'Society Growth'.




We repeat key information on various page to ensure most information is available in one place. Where information is repeated, or included from another elsewhere, we label this as an "ANNEXURE" or "ANNEXURES (below). The result is that our tabbed (or tour) pages provide a compehensive coverage of the topic without needing to navigate among various pages to assemble the information.

NETWORK SOCIETY SUMMARY (Brief - Why? - How? - Where? - What? - Who?)

Brief summary

  • ONE NETWORK DRIVING GLOBAL COMMUNITY PURSUING SOCIETY GROWTH: Network Society uses one network, one Technology Stack (of 9 Technologies), one method (things -> books -> communities/sectors/regions/countries -> society) and three roles (Executives - Managers - Leaders) to organise sectors, regions and countries in the Internet of Everything (IoE) to collectively drive Society Growth (consisting of 29 Social Growth Factors across organisation, wisdom, capital and satisfaction).
  • SIMPLICITY AND SUSTAINABILITY AT ZERO MARGINAL COST: Society returns from the complexity and unsustainability of a Society which uses the Industrial Economy model which achieves ‘less’ economic growth with millions of narrow high cost, hierarchies, to the simplicity and sustainability of ‘more’ Social Growth in a Network Society driven by people in all encompassing Zero Marginal Cost networks.

  • NETWORK SOCIETY TECHNOLOGY STACK OFFERS 'MORE' SOCIETY GROWTH FACTORS WITH DRAMATICALLY LESS RESOURCES AND 1% OF THE COMPLEXITY: Network Society 'Technology Stack' achieves more of the 29 'Society Growth' Factors (encompassing organisation, wisdom, capital and satisfaction) with 1% of the complexity and a 200x productivity jump.
  • INDUSTRIAL ECONOMY OFFERS LESS WITH MORE RESOURCES, EXPONENTIAL COMPLEXITY, HIGH ENVIRONMENTAL COST, DECLINING PRODUCTIVITY AND STAGNATION: The Industrial Economy model divides physical things amongst millions of physical organisations each, millions of technology stacks and millions of methods of organisation. The primary focus is on GDP and monetising 'things' to sustain large organisations. This model achieves a low number of 'Society Growth' factors and moving physical things results in significant environment cost and significant externalities.
  • NETWORK SOCIETY IS SUSTAINABLE WITH LOWER ENERGY USAGE, LESS ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE WHILE ACHIEVING MORE SOCIAL GROWTH FACTORS FOR MORE PEOPLE FASTER: Network Society offers a fundamental change in the ratio of economic, social and environmental outcomes relative to costs. By moving organising 'Digital Twins' in networks, physical things do not need to be moved for the purposes of organisation. In Network Society, people use network to organise, make decisions and arrange service delivery in real-time. The Industrial Economy's isolated, fragmented and slow structures become obsolete and significant energy, environmental and adminstrative savings are a result.




  • NETWORK SOCIETY MANAGES 'DIGITAL TWINS' OF SOCIETY'S THINGS USING ONE NETWORK, ONE TECHNOLOGY STACK AND ONE METHOD: Network Society achieves twice the society with 1% of the complexity and a 200x productivity jump with 1% of the complexity, compared to Industrial Economy. It achieves this 200x lift in productivity by organising ‘Digital Twins’ using one Technology Stack, on one network with one method (linking things - sharing books - crowd creating communities/sectors/industries - society with a common purpose).
  • NETWORK SOCIETY PROVIDES HUNDREDS OF TAGS (OR CATEGORIES OR ATTRIBUTES) THAT ALLOWS EACH THING TO BE DIFFERENTIATED WITHIN ONE NETWORK (RATHER THAN FRAGMENTED IN MILLIONS OF PHYSICAL STRUCTURES): Network Society puts a 'Digital Twin' of every 'thing' in a network and differentiates 'things', not by separation, but by simply assigning tags (or categories or attributes) to each thing. Tags include the six types of things (data, information, community, collaboration, knowledge, wisdom), sector, region and country.
    1. 1. Zero Marginal Cost: There is no incremental cost to add a user to a Network Society, particularly if averaged over a global network. There is a high marginal cost to add users to an Industrial Economy, particularly in a smaller organisation unit.
    2. 2. Digital Twins: A ‘Digital Twins’ platform maintains a digital twin of all things in society including people and content across sectors, regions and countries. It is exponentially more efficient and effective to organise society in a ‘Digital Twin’ platform where every thing is connected to every other thing
    3. 3. Cryptocurrency: sound currency and irreversible payments
    4. 4. Internet of Things (IoT) - remote monitoring, interaction and control of things
    5. 5. Permanent 'things' - permanent decentralised storage
    6. 6. Blockchainified things - decentralised, irreversible, trusted transactions and immutable audit trail
    7. 8. Wisdomified (knowledge and prioritised action) things - focus the wisdom of anyone on any 'thing' anywhere in real-time
    8. 8. Internet of Everything (IoE) in one place - every 'thing', every interaction, everyone in one place with service delivery, governance and organisation in one network accessible by all
    9. 9. Society Growth as a common purpose consisting of 29 achievable Social Growth Factors



  • LARGE ORGANISATIONS AND GOVERNMENT ARE BEST PLACED TO ACCELERATE THE SHIFT TO NETWORK SOCIETY WITH INNOVATION AND STARTUPS ON THE CRITICAL PATH TO NETWORK SOCIETY:: Our self-service Ventures resource is intended to provide entrepreneurs in large organisations (government and corporates), society (people, startups and crowds) and countries/regions with a process and the specific tools and knowledge to crowd create ‘Society Growth’ ventures on the critical path to Network Society. Large organisations, particularly government and telecommunciations companies, could achieve Network Society in 3-10 years.
  • WISDOM NETWORKS ARE DIGITAL TWIN PLATFORMS WHICH FOCUS WISDOM (KNOWLEDGE AND ACTION) ON 'THINGS': Our heritage is in two elements of the Network Society Technology Stack - 'Digital Twin' networks and 'Wisdomified things'. Our future expands to the Network Society Technology Stack and accelerating evolution to Network Society with Ventures resource intended to accelerate evolution to Network Society.

Wisdom Networks are part of the Network Society 'Technology Stack' and provide a 'Digital Twin' of physical things in society, and bring the wisdom of crowds to those things. Wisdom Networks enable all-inclusive citizen empowerment and democratisation across every sector. 100 times more addressable data means 10,000 times more patterns (or knowledge) and "a profound change in the economics of the world we live in".
Network Society empowers every person by organising every “thing” in Society in the “Internet of Everything" (IoE) into shared books, just like people already do with their social lives. Everyone can participate and contribute to every “thing”, everywhere, across every sector in society in real-time via their mobile devices. Network Society organises collective knowledge, collective governance and collective action in real-time. Network Society is “The App” that drives economic and social development across sectors and countries. Our sector pages provide comprehensive information including screenshots and community definitions (in IoE terms).

Sectors as a 'Digital Twin' (screenshots below)

What does each sector look like as 'Digital Twins' in a Network? Screenshots provided below. BPlease find some screenshot examples below of 'things' and 'books' in sectors. Each sector contains different 'things', but the underlying method of linking 'things' into 'books' and sharing them remains the same. One method of organising past, present and future means a dramatic reduction in complexity across society and a scalable solution to organise society and the global village at zero marginal cost.

Health 'things' and 'books'

Governance 'things' and 'books'

Education 'things' and 'books'

Government 'things' and 'books'

Management & Organisation 'things' and 'books'

Equity Market 'things' and 'books'

Additional sector screenshots

Sector pages and presentations contain further screenshots and workflow diagrams for each sector.


Sectors as a Blockchain

Basic sector workflows outlining potential blockchain designs or smart contracts are also provided for some sectors. A 'Digital Twin' of every sector and society function can be created as a blockchain, smart contracts and 'things in the Internet of Everything (IoE). EThe objective is to define a blockchain which primarily organises person to person collaboration and transactions.

Wisdom Networks organise society's 'things' within networks in the Internet of Everything (IOE) via people and their mobile devices.

Wisdom.to Overview

  • WISDOM.TO is focused on accelerating the critical path to Network Society, the next stage of economic and social development.
  • WISDOM.TO/NETWORKSOCIETY organises society by linking 'digital twins' of people and society's things in networks across sectors, regions and countries. Each person can interact with every 'thing' anywhere in direct person to person networks in real-time. Each 'thing' can receive global/local participation, global/local contribution, wisdom (of crowds), trusted transactions (via decentralised blockchains confirming transactions and providing immutable audit trails), real-time collaboration and permanent storage.
  • WISDOM.TO/THIRDINDUSTRIALREVOLUTIONis the global integration of ‘communications internet’, ‘energy internet’ and ‘transport internet’ and a shift to horizontal, decentralised people driven networks as a means to organise society at Zero Marginal Cost with less environment, energy and resources impact. It provides an overdue and critically required jump in Total Factor Productivity (in system) and Aggregated Efficiency (system potential yield) to drive prosperity in the future. ‘Network Society’ is the ‘communications internet’ or Internet of Everything (IoE) platform of the ‘Third Industrial Revolution’
  • WISDOM.TO/SOCIETYGROWTH is the purpose of Network Society and consists 29 'Social Growth' Factors (encompassiong organisation, wisdom, capital, satisfaction). Economic Growth is a subset of Society Growth (9 of 29 factors).
  • WISDOM.TO/TECHNOLOGYSTACK outlines the 9 strategic technologies which combine to provide foundation fo a Network Society and provide more Social Growth with 1% of the complexity of the Industrial Economy.
  • WISDOM.TO/VISIONis to accelerate the Shift from Industrial Economy to Network Society to 3-10 years and a jump in Productivity (in system) and Aggregated Efficiency (system yield) which drives living satndard higher for all. Alternatively, 'Trapped Transition which could last 50 years with consequential environmental damage and declining living standards from an Industrial Economy methodology which became obsolete in 1972, 1990 or 2008.
  • WISDOM.TO/VENTURES is a 'Network Society Expansion Pack' and education resource for economic development, innovation and startup programmes including EU's Smart Specialisation Strategy (S3), Open Government Partnership (OGP), The Lean Startup (for isolated startups), The Startup Way (across large organisations), 'Open Innovation', accelerators and bespoke initiatives. It provides a template 'Society Growth Strategy' presentation template and a checklist of 'Strategic projects' on the critical path to Network Society. Content structured around six themes - Methodologies, Research, Technologies, Ventures, Sectors and Countries. Under development (completed December 2017).
  • WISDOM.TO/SECTORS provides a 'base' Network Society (horizon) strategy for many sectors of scoiety including health, education, equity market, government, governance, democracy and others.
  • WISDOM.TO/COUNTRIES provides a 'base' Network Society 'horizon' strategy for 20+ countries, Europe, Humanitarian projects, 69 Open Government Partnership (OGP) countries and 15 OGP subnationals, Smart Specialisation Strategies (S3) and Telecommunications companies.
