0oo P&L: -1349.7 (≃ -13329 USD)

To enable work and scaling of Half-baked ideas YAML Project Produce Base Administration

0oo is a virtual space where humans organise research and development of ideas, and scale of innovations.

This project is the project to manage the development of this very site itself. Currently residing at the domain, it is an I/O system, that was created based on the aspirations explained in the background story ([1], [2]) (video) of this project, which describes the aspiration to help humanity collectively define and pursue goals, and in this way, create a friendly intelligence, which humanity itself is.

Hoped Outcomes

  • [in 3-5 years] Half a billion people quit their jobs and live by solving problems directly in society, doing what they love.
  • [in 7 years] Major challenges in health, education and work are addressed by innovative solutions suggested, attempted, and part of them further continually developed.

Previous versions of the project are open source and available on

Here's a one-pager, describing the project from a different perspective, with one of the possible paths to scale.




0.00 DAI
0.00 BTC
0.00 EUR
Yearly IRR: -1.0000

Adding math formulas is now possible, like so: $$\sqrt{-1}$$ The Markdown syntax has been supported on 0oo for a long time, but there were problems with them in translations. Fixed both of these issues.

-24.0000 ħ (24.0 HUR) (+0.0) E-mail subscription management

Just finished the feature suggested by my brother -- basically, problem was that people, who just want to keep up with some single particular topic, had no option to do that. Now they do. :) Click on the title to see result demo. Perhaps it'll make this place a little more useful for casual visitors.


Added support for flexible way for projects to register their contributions coming over various channels, so as to enable public tracking of multi-stakeholder, multi-ledger, multi-currency projects. (subtasks log)

-50.0000 ħ (50.0 HUR) (+0.0) Made Community Reader!

Created a community reader at, so we can read external sources in a form that makes it easy organize and reshare to 0oo for deliberation.


For the first time user to understand what's going on, had modified /welcome page, for it to more clear, styled add Question/Idea/Project buttons and search fields in homepage.

0.0000 ħ (None USD) (+0.0) [Preprint]

Wrote and published a paper (pre-print), named "Big Picture for Everyone: The relationship between the equation model and base vectors for mapping human semantic space."

-1.5755 ħ (15.0 USD) (+0.0) Registered symmetric, reversed domain

For purpose of the market, i.e., what's currently on . That is, because the interface of the market is radically different, and would be the priority index for many "normal" people, who just want to find people, companies and products. So, it merits a convenient direct access point.

-1.0000 ħ (1.0 HUR) (+0.0) Infinity Friend World Stakeholder Shares.

Created a kind of shares of this project, that people can order, to become a part of the project.

These shares would provide certain rights and responsibilities, and entail a particular relationship ("membership") with the people within the 0oo, as the 0oo is geared to become "a community as a product" type of project.

What kind of community are we?

(answer to be drafted in a document)

If you feel like you would be part of such a community, get a share to support its creation.


2 days, approx 16 hours at 50$/hr.

[ruta], wouldn't we want to have more public discussion about the project itself right here? :)

[Mindey], yes! we get a lot of feedback these days, so worth starting to share ideas for product features and milestones here.

A designer: "Schools would be most suitable IMO. It would teach young people to communicate with each other and express their thoughts."

A business executive: "My true passion is food. I used to make shoes for vegans and vegetarians. I used to use plastic type of leather for shoe making. Now, no ones knows how to make shoes anymore!"

"You know, our goal is to collect procedural knowledge on how things were made. Next time you want to open a shoe factory, you can do so, because you know how people did it in the past," I said.

An accountant professional: "I have lots of problems. Can I try? Some for my business, some personal ones. My family member has a disability so we have to approach problems differently."

"I agree, that's why conversation is important. We focus on comment based problem solving," I said.

An accountant professional: "So, how does it work? You have a problem, then think about a solution, project, milestones and tasks, you say. With our business, the hardest thing is implementation."

"I agree, what people usually lack is resources - human capital, financial capital or knowledge. People with skills, know-how or money. On a daily basis it can be hard to find the right people. Let's say I want to make education better, so I want to connect with teachers. How do I find them? I need to go to schools, look for online forums. It takes time to make friends. It's easier with our platform, you already have all the people, together, in one place. I don't need to look for people myself, content is what connects us. I don't need to look for teachers because teachers are there talking about problems they care about," I said.

A technical executive: "You have a tool to solve problems... What problems?"

"Any. Personal or global. Personal, let's say you want to quit your job and start your own business. You'll spend days, weeks, months, sometimes years talking to your friends and family about your problem, but quite often you won't do anything about it and stay where you are -- at the problem mode. The same applies for global problems. Let's say you are annoyed by seeing rubbish on the street. You keep complaining to your friends, but don't do anything to improve situation. With Infinity, you get a structure to move away from the problem and take action to get what you want," I said.

Now we have the essential features: 1) knowledge framework, 2) true multilinguality, 3) credit system.



[Eimantas] Hi, welcome to try out our updated site ;) Btw., how it is going with Crrency?

Btw., regarding the possible ways for getting return on investment into Infinity:

  • projects' equity
  • github model (e.g., pay for non-public space for projects, but I would like it be free space for non-commercial projects, like TeamViewer does if that is the case)
  • membership fees
  • pay-per-action (e.g., posting a problem in public may incur a fee)
  • credit purchasing (e.g., user may purchase credit, and some actions like posting new public content may eat the credit)
  • pay-per-payment (e.g., fraction of payment)

The graph above, currently is not representative of the project as a whole. However, I will try to make it such some time soon. The problem with evaluating the vaue of the Infinity project, is that it has the potential to affect diverse fields. We're talking millions of startup companies to be created via Infinity project.

Did you realize that people can actually stay anonymous while using infty? For discussions, I think this is a good thing. It is possible to register a free GitHub account, and to register with GitHub, a person only needs an e-mail. There had been an attempt on Citizendium to use real-name-policy, but Wikipedia seem to do just fine with anonymous authors... [ruta], [aliev]

One idea from the past by [aliev]: if a comment looks like a milestone, or a task, we should make it possible to convert it into it.

Guys, I was thinking how to make it easier for people to share on infty.

People have thoughtful discussions over email. We have time to think about what we want to say over email because we're not forced to respond just like we're over real-time chat. Why not make it easy to add such email conversations to infty by allowing people to cc ? This way people wouldn't need to leave a space where they have conversations but they could still preserve the knowledge on infty, and share it.

( works similarly, you just cc an AI)

[Mindey] [aliev] [george]

[ruta] to be able to share a random e-mail conversation on infty just cc-ing it to our e-mail address would require the ability to parse, which part of e-mail describes problem, which describes idea, etc. within a bunch of e-mails forwarded, and one email may have many ideas, and many problems, so, random e-mail to - and infty automatically sorts out what is the problem, what is the idea, etc? If we had this capability, why wouldn't we just throw any information from the web at it, and let it automatically figure this out? :) (I don't say we won't be able to do this in the near future, but not in the nearEST.)

As for human-assisted interaction, I think it is easier. E.g., I am thinking, how to write my ideas in my wiki, and just mark them up with some syntax, e.g., {:post it on infty|this is the content:}, so that my wiki would use infty API to post it for me.

So, we could support special tags, that people who write e-mails could use it when they forward e-mails to, and then, if they are really users of infty, and their e-mail is coming from expected sender, we could create content item(s) based on it.

[aliev], [ruta], long time ;) Are we still getting notifications?

Consulted ourselves {0.2} hours ;) {?0.1} And video: {0.3}:

I think this project is interesting one in there.

i have edited my comment.

I spent {3} :), and expect it will take another {?0.5}.

Hey, guys! So, after a little long time, Infinity is in a fresh new reworked version, and on a new domain Feel free to comment and ask questions. :)

Apparently, that single-page application didn't work out very well. Issues are numerous. For one thing -- someone who just wants to share a single page with someone, makes them download a whole app, just to show a single page.

So, now, finally 2020, I have decided to try to rework it in plain Django, right here, on, without any additional JavaScript. ^__^ Let's see how it goes~

Btw., so, I'm still considering, where to put the backlog. Maybe it should be on whatever we use, like, e.g., I use Dynalist. Or, if we use GitHub's issues, it would be nice to put day-summaries here as task results.

Appears like a lot of content needs to be cleaned up, or [marked-for-deletion].

Among the todo items, is improving the rendering of the Markdown. Currently line breaking doesn't work as expected, sorry for that. Will fix it. Maybe let me write here Or, better use Dynalist? Actually look at the "Bug report" on the left.

And here are the tasks planned out for tomorrow, at least from my side :) I feel like I need friends who would like to become administrators.

How about making a Telegram bot that posts an Idea, Project, Category or even a Comment to any of existing Ideas, Projects, Categories without me going to my browser? It would save me time on mobile for sure..

// How about making a Telegram bot that posts an Idea, ..., or even a Comment without me going to my browser? It would save me time on mobile for sure..

I think it would make most sense to have a Telegram bot for each Category, Idea, Project, and so that comments posted in them would automatically be synchronized with autogenerated Telegram channel for the topic.

However, that would mean creating a new Idea would have to be like creating a new Telegram channel. This could be done by Telegram API. However, that kind of bot would have to automatically create new users on Homebase, using usernames of Telegram users, and do something sane when there are multiple users with same usernames, basically generate accounts on Homebase. The recipie to automate creation of group is:

from telethon import TelegramClient, events, sync
from telethon import functions
api_id = XXXXXX # Get on
api_hash = 'YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY' # Get on
client = TelegramClient('session_name', api_id, api_hash)
phone = '+ZZZZZZZZZZZZ' # (verify with other live connection)
# Doing stuff:
created_group = client(functions.messages.CreateChatRequest(
        users=['inyuki', 'mindey'],
        title='Intent 5: Creating Deep Connections and Love in Society'
chat_id = created_group.__dict__["chats"][0].__dict__["id"]
invite = client(functions.messages.ExportChatInviteRequest(chat_id))
# client.log_out()

And, I think this would not make sense by default, only perhaps to be customly enabled for certain ideas, when the conversation size reaches some point.

So, now, we're starting with actual project's sharing, sharing of it with people in problem domains, to get people solve problems together.

0oo meaning: from zero to infinity ?

// 0oo meaning: from zero to infinity ?

Yeah, who said we should be doing 0 -> 1, if we can do 0 -> ∞? Those who do 0 -> 1, usually don't get the benefit of scaling, and stay poor. Zero-To-Infinity, means a focus -- both to create things that didn't exist before, scaling it. :)

At this point, I think in the exchange section, it would be strategically advantageous to focus on trade of tools and equipment that empowers people to make and scale in markets, because these things are what creates value in societies.

For example, trading of power tools, industrial equipment, like mining equipment, farming tools, medical tools and equipment, laboratory equipment, mass production equipment, chip manufacturing equipment, etc., -- these are the transformers and enablers, that make modern life possible. They are what will eventually help understand the know-how graph.

Trade focus: - industrial equipment and materials, - medical equipment and materials, - lab equipment and materials.

Thinking of the further features:

  • For general user: great value is in the ability to immediately contact many bright minds for feedback to your well-crafted message. We already have some people on Telegram, that we can simply invite to a Zoom meeting, and share about the overall notifications business (namely, that once someone will publish, they will get notified on Telegram, and are invited to provide feedback to the posted item.). So, while we had invited people already to the Telegram channels, they are currently not informed about this mechanics, and what they have to do once they get notification about a new topic on 0oo. We should therefore organize Zoom meetings to start this process.

  • For researchers, is the full database (e.g., SQLite) download (or just equivalently API serializers with downloader).

  • For trading and running business, it's the support for the payments. Thinking of payments, while Stripe is nice, we have to support freedom of using any methods -- from cryptographic currencies to traditionals like banks, PayPal, etc.
  • For general user, perhaps it would be nice to have "one inbox" -- i.e., merging "Categories", "Ideas" and "Projects" into one uniform list of items, that are just labeled, and filterable, without resorting to Elasticsearch.
  • IRC Server, to create new channels for new posts.

Thinking -- whenever dealing with currencies on 0oo, it's think of doing so like making friends with the people who issue those currencies. Economies are relationships...

Thinking -- when importing data about production, to connect actual manufacturers directly with the market, not via distributors, but via Homebase :)

Yeah, we need open and transparent direct trade and product exchange.

Focusing on equipment and materials... would answer most questions about know-how...

Thinking, for the ideas, it would make sense to connect with Ethereum via Metamask, to optionally sign innovations as ERC721 tokens...

I feel that I can see some ideas and information, but I don’t understand the feeling of what is going on.

感觉能看到一些思路和信息, 就是看不大明白咋回事咋操作的感觉,

// I feel that I can see some ideas and information, but I don’t understand the feeling of what is going on,

In fact, in this way, the home page acts as a kind of "inbox". Therefore, if you comment on some past ideas, you will see that there are unfinished topics on the home page. How do you see it? It's because there are new comments that haven't been read in black.

Usually, you can check once a week to see if there are any new and interesting contents, or subscribe to RSS. Other descriptions are in /about.

We don't have a description video in Chinese yet. Ready to make one :) Then, may you need a function to subscribe to comments?

// 感觉能看到一些思路和信息, 就是看不大明白咋回事咋操作的感觉,




Now, I'm thinking, that the /products section of 0oo could work a bit like CraigList, but supporting people's own payment methods, or tokens of approval of payments.

A few thoughts on time banking: _ "Money would then be defined as 'uncompensated hours' - public debt to a person, which it covers by giving the right to buy the results of other projects for them ..." _

[video] (

What is important is that in this case people could make valuable (traceable work) money :)

Kelios mintys dėl laiko bankininkystės: "Pinigai tuomet apsibrėžtų kaip "nekompensuotos valandos" -- visuomenės skola žmogui, kurią ji padengia duodama teises už jas nusipirkti kitų projektų rezultatų..."


Kas svarbu, tai, kad tokiu atveju žmonės galėtų vertę turinčių (atsekamų darbų rezultatų) pinigų pasigaminti :)

Thinking, of double strategy: business that funds decentralization encryption of user data from being able to see itself, and funds decentralization and dis-own-ment of its services.

Why? Because it's the amount of funds needed for development of the decenralized solution is large enough, that can only be funded as part of the business operations.

Current questions for 0oo front end:

  • How can UI work as an ice-breaker and encourage people to post humourous responses?

  • What types of ideas there are? So that diverse people feel welcomed to share their idea on 0oo.

Make OpenERP have REST APIs, and get companies listed as and get them automatically list their products on ?

I think, we should operate as a global and free public service, because this type of site, like Wikipedia, serves like a basic infrastructure for public politics, innovation and work. While usually public services are limited to specific countries, they, like the payment processor services, can also be engineered to support multiple jurisdictions simultaneously...

I think logged in users need a reader, that would allow to read external sources, and choose what to import to 0oo. For example, the view like /reader/ideas could let us use like a reader of Halfbakery, with special button, to import the ideas that we like. Similarly, /reader/projects may let us browse and read companies, etc.

This would allow the users of to work like researchers, browsing external questions, ideas, projects, and importing the gems for discussion and work here.

It's almost like our community would have a data-lake of external data sources, and be able to import things worth paying attention to for our community.

I think we should partner with on the ledger (projects ledger) side, and should discuss about desired generality, as we have on 0oo. Also, consider collaboration with, as they provide the ability for companies do nearly all business operations by themselves, and companies running Odoo could easily publish parts of their data from ERP to 0oo for public. (We should write an odoo modules for that, for all ERPs.)

The advances in decentralization and clear 0oo database model, makes me think that we could decentralize this system, but it has to be a new effort of its own.
