I've found a flat, which has made things somewhat simpler :) , but now I have to wait three weeks for the operator guys to get to installing ADSL for me here :(
I managed to find a flat and it looks like next weekend I'm going to spend moving my stuff from me previous flat but after that I hope to get back to developing consumerium with a bit more effort and focus then in the past months.
- Why not concentrate on performance requirements and protocol requirements for now. Get them to specify some extreme standards. Then hardware requirements and last software requirements. Doing things in that order may attract the most trolliest trolls.
- Though on software it would be good to think about web browser toolbars and cell phone menus that would be required to make Consumerium Services really convenient to use anywhere, anytime, in any roam zone or from any public kiosk web browser.
I'm very occupied by trying to find a flat to live in and to kick off my international business studies so you have to excuse me for being a little inactive for a while since i'm squatting at a friendly co-students flat 'till I find a place of my own so that is the top priority for me now.
We need to focus on and solve the outstanding issues to get Consumerium Services or Features running. It is clear that we aim to cover more ground then CorpKnowPedia or The Matrix since we intend to cover besides companies also products and product groups. It is much contested to we work better by referencing or engulfing the other similar services.
- Using GetWiki we could both reference and engulf at the same time. Can Getwiki take different articles from different wikis? Say by a set of rules that might look for articles on Proper Named entities in one place, say CorpKnowPedia, and generic terms in another place - say Wikinfo ?
It is clear that we need to establish a working relationship with GEPIR and Product registries and Internet UPC Database. For that we need to establish Consumerium Governance Organisation to be able to negotiate deals with these establishment and authoritative sources.
- Don't at least one of these orgs give out their data to more or less anyone who asks on a nonprofit basis? If not then yes you are correct.
