I’m looking so forward to 2017 and already established a fast-paced momentum. I love my bae so much and what I love about her is we are loyal friends to the end and she is my firefly. Over the years, she has been a beautiful illumination in my life and I appreciated how she uplifted me to believe in bigger and better things, a good woman will do that do a good man. In the first two weeks of 2017, I have made some major changes and accomplished several things that I hope carry through in 2017. Many of you already know I’m currently on Medium and I’m writing articles there also. I have been picked up by Austin Startups which has a base of 70K readers who actually read my articles and show support. There has always been a bigger audience reading Dream and Hustle while we had a few African-Americans thinking they had a tech legend sized up. In addition, I’m fortifying the Facebook group I’m managing with close to 80k black professionals and the group is a nice demographic that I can draw from. I will spend more focus writing for Swagg-Scientific and the 3rd Strategic Institute which will have their own blog as I focus more on my firm and the goals for 2017. This week, I have presented Kossier+Fooky.com to the global stage for the first time as an entrant in the Dubai hackathon for the blockchain. The solution I built on the Kossier+Fooky.com platform to demonstrate our smart city capability address the foreign visa worker issue where a small problem can escalate into a poor immigrant worker being caught up and thrown in jail just for trying to make ends meet in a foreign country. What has been happening is someone from Ethiopia, Indonesia, Philippines or Sri Lanka would travel to a new country to work on a visa and then what happen is they can be abused or cheated out of money and have to quit that abusive job. But they don’t have money to go back home and they start hustling working illegally and subjected to more abuse. Then the host country find out about them, jail them and deport them so you see how a poor domestic worker like a Ethiopian maid can be quickly abused and caught up. Our submission was a check-in system where a foreign worker performs a check-in with their sponsor employer on the blockchain every week or two weeks and this blockchain is shared to the embassy and ministry of interior to know the worker-employer relationship and intervene sooner when a problem arises. Kossier+Fooky.com has now been presented to the global stage and competing against other major platforms and people around the world know who we are now. Swagg-Scientific has one more web site to release and that is the account.swagg-scientific.com I’m expecting to release mid-January. This web site is a revolutionary next-generation design and allow people to view their accounts, billing and revenue detail in one place. The cool thing is a person will have one personal account, but they can have multiple business accounts as entrepreneurs to create services for the Fooky.com platform for example. Or we collect revenue on their behalf where we create the prepaid cards for the marketplace. What we basically done was make it a one-stop shop for urban digital entrepreneurs around the world to use our platform to do business. Years ago, the 3rd Strategic Institute had worked on a project overseas I still cannot fully disclose but basically, we have given people these FM transmitters that has a range of several miles in full mode with a nice transmission antenna. Last year, MixPartyZone, our upcoming EDM music service was being secretly tested in the Philippines and we used the same setup but also the headphones. Using our findings, this year, I’m bringing this same technology to the black community in Atlanta but with a different approach than our global projects. I’m going to help the black youth throughout Atlanta create their own FM “micro-stations” and take over the radio airwaves and speak for their own black community. FCC allow 200 feet for unlicensed FM transmission and if you think that is small, you ain’t thinking right. For black high school and college kids – 200 feet is a football tailgate where they can broadcast their games live. 200 feet is a strip mall in Southeast Atlanta where these kids can promote local business while playing local music. But in case you haven’t figured it out – we can have several individual clusters of 200 feet micro-stations throughout Atlanta owned by young black youth broadcasting an syndicated Internet stream to their 200 feet audience. And if there is an emergency like Hurricane Katrina, these black youths will have these FM radios up and running to guide our black people to safety. We are taking our goddamn black radio from the Boule and giving it back to the black community in 2017. I am teaching my son how to code and this is one of the first things I showed him how to code, a blockchain-based media distribution center that will be part of our Kossier system and the MochaStar! platform but can easily be a standalone. In the workflow above, a publisher encrypt their e-book to our bot public key of their music, their photos, their movies and this file is distributed and copied around the world encrypted. Then anybody in the world can buy the file and the bot encrypt it to their public key and the customer can find the address on the blockchain and download their file. This allow anybody to self-publish and have an audience anywhere in the world at any time with immediate global distribution and sales. What I just presented is everything I accomplished in the first two weeks of 2017 as a member of the Afro-Tech to empower and uplift others worldwide. This is not including all the work under progress which show the level of work we are putting in here. Just like my bae, I want to uplift and enlighten others. In 2017, this will be the mission of the Afro-Tech and we are fireflies.
