becoming part of the evolution where independent Sm'art Communities & Sm'art Institutions are set to grow exponentially from within today's Knowledge & Innovation Economies - just as fast as how independent computer networks blossomed with arrival of the Internet and World Wide Web before them; in recognition of the vast opportunities and risks coming down the track with the Social eMarketplaces. The reason why this is so true is that only local leaders and community based organisations really understand and appreciate what their individual community's needs and wants truly are. Ideas born today can now be 'born global' - going global simultaneously. And they can be replicated in high volume, and even distributed in downloads, just in an instant. It is their Community-based Orgs that these Community depends for future initiatives. These initiatives unleash the power of cooperation, and directs shared technology and other resources towards one common community goal. Whole industries have vanished with arrival of the dotCom boom and bust; and new ones are springing up everywhere now, with benefits flowing to those who have the vision and who make the necessary commitments to make that vision. Entire Communities are being left behind however, having failed to become part of the Knowledge Economy developments worldwide; events of an epoc proportion that now heralds the arrival of the much more potent Innovation, the Smart & Social Economy that followed. The focus of the world has moved from the physical Property, that which was the hallmark of all banking projects of 20th Century - moving relentlessly onwards and upwards now into Intellectual Property, that is already the hallmark of 21st Century with the Innovation Economy. This is where the 'railroads of the 19th Century' were paralleled by the broadband of the 20th Century; where the 'trains to the new frontiers' back then have become the eCommerce tracks of today. We have just passed through an era which the esteemed Warren Buffet called 'wealth transfer rather than wealth creation', pre DotCom boom and bust. We are now in an era of value co-creation, not just added value, which we believe will feature a DotCoop Boom, led by Community Cooperatives. We are basing this on the premise that whereas, in the past, entire Countries survived on Remittances, being the Money Transfers from the enterprise and risk-taking of their migrant or diaspora community; tomorrow, on the virtual frontiers of this new world that is emerging by the day - every Community can survive and prosper by becoming a Smart Community using Community Culture Smartshops with a vision emerging from within their own community.
Sm'art Communities are now ready today for the dotCoop boom that we expect to replace the dotCom bust which we saw at the turn of the century, to which ICA.Coop open letters refer, as available on these pages. You can now open your own Catalogue or Storefront now with VoxWorld.Coop Community Outlets, using the VoxLabs toolbox - a Social Franchisor; becoming part of a 'more than profit' network of collaborative organisations.
This is a New World, a New Way. Much of what we see today, post global crash in Banks, Stock Markets, Property Markets & now Businesses & Pension Funds all around us is a vivid reminder of what happened in the days of the Gold Rush & Land Grab 150 years before in America - those who did not become part of the Change that followed, those who did not risk or feared the major changes required to adapt, became residents of the Ghost Towns and were left behind. Today is little different, except they will known perhaps as Ghost Communities or Ghost Estates. Sm'art Communities however are rapidly discovering ever more uptapped latent wealth amidst their own people, within their own culture - and for which they find they have an untapped global audience with a huge latent or previously unseen demand....within their own Diaspora, and their associated global neighbourhood community wishing to carry their own culture with them around the world - and to people for whom they have (perhaps unknowingly) become trusted ambassadors, to their wider Community as migrants and immigrants. Today we see huge job losses everywhere - but there are also tens of millions of unfilled jobs all around the world, and many requiring a new skills mix as yet not readily unavailable. There are 4 million Nurses required worldwide this decade in hospitals, clinics, homecare; among healthcare contractors and recruiters. There is also an estimated 30 million ICT workers also needed in coming years wherever the Sm'art Economy flourishes - typically among Sm'art Communities; and Teachers too, as well as other skilled workers in every career path to include millions of care & green economy workers. In addition there are countless millions of new small business (MSME) traded-services jobs required too, being the foundation stones of most Knowledge, Innovation & Smart Economies everywhere...all part of when demand (both known and unknown, the latent demand) is matched to supply skills in new ways, in examples: telecare, telehealth, teleteach, telesales, teleserve, social finance; in social commerce, as social franchisors, for a boundless social emarketplace- all becoming hallmarks of tomorrow's Innovation, Sm'art & Social Economies. And new ideas are today being 'born global' - like never before- just look at Social Networking & Social Media today (aka. Facebook, LinkedIn etc) and the innovative Social Marketplaces (aka. eBay, Amazon, Google) as they now expand in scale and scope to meet tomorrow's needs and wants. And that rate of change is accelerating rapidly too. This is indeed a New World, a New Way.
The first step is the hardest step, but taking no-step is making the choice to be left behind. The day of relying on the big Multi-National Corporations (MNC's) to come into town bearing jobs, only to watch them increasingly leave soon again taking your jobs and dreams with them are consigned to the past; where in today's model replacement for them is often called a GIE (Globally Integrated Enterprises), seen as borderless corporations who have increasingly less allegiance to anyone or anyplace - they just source jobs and products/ services wherever its cheapest or with best offer. Like never before, in reality we are getting more and more dependent on ourselves and our own Community collectively to survive and prosper. While increasingly Sm'art Communities the world over are all starting to compete on a level playing field with each other, that presents both a new threat and also a great new opportunity for Inter-Community trading.
And such Communities will take on new and many varied shapes tomorrow - virtual Cities, Regions, Countries, Cultures, Colleges, Corp & College Alumni, Affinity Groups, Clubs, Coops, Lifestyle Orgs, Social Networks/ Groups, Diaspora, etc - will be born, all virtually connected.
Only your vision will create your Sm'art Communities - as new technology alone will not do that for you, though it will greatly assist as seen in exciting products such as the attached Amazon Kindle eBook. The eHub of VoxWorld.Coop Communities will be international Community CO-OP Centres ('Sm'art E-CO-Hubs') backed by Community-based Organisations (CBO's) at home and away, with the initiative coming from, and then rightly with the benefits primarily going back to, your Homeshores. One can learn, earn, shop and save at the Sm'art E-Co Hub - or even do it all from home - in fact from anywhere, at anytime via anyone once you have acquired the skills and made your community connections. The days of economic and social sacrifice in your Homeshores as often denuded by migrants forced to leave home, away from family & friends to earn a living are open to major change now for the better. The technology and other means are available at or through such as the VoxWorld.Coop Communities - all that is needed is your local initiatives. Our toolbox is the VoxLabs® Model, a communitarian model developed over many years, complete with all the tools required to satisfy what is a huge untapped latent demand worldwide for services not yet available - from online Outlets to shop-in-shops formats for best sellers, to Virtual Retail Networks via interactive kiosks in cost-saving community collaboration, or simply via Dispensers & Displays in existing retail and new locations and diaspora boxes at shipping desks; all provided complete with culturally-integated, market-driving Interfaces...the Dispensers, Displays, Diaspora Boxes, Smartcards, Smartcells, Smartshops and Vouchercards.
