Douglass OS

Technology + Beloved Community


Douglass: Technology For Peace, Love, Purpose

Douglass is Technology for intentional emancipatory futures. Douglass empowers: local and global communities, returns economic value, funds public goods, and creates the possibility for new models of economics and governance centered in the ideals of Martin Luther Kings “Beloved Community”.

The Douglass OS is a decentralized Operating System and network with a new generation of applications, an integrated  peer to peer protocol, cutting edge Artificial Intelligence, and “FreedomTrain” our Beloved Community Economics and Governance service that will put communities in control of their futures.

A foundation of intentional Beloved Community aligned policies ensures that the products and technologies we build are in service to: life, earth and communities rather than dominating, replacing, and exploiting them.

Frederick Douglass

Douglass is named in honor of  Frederick Douglass — An African American icon who stood for the equality of all peoples and the possibility of a better tomorrow. A self emancipated slave before the Civil War, Frederick Douglass was an abolitionist, human rights activist, entrepreneur, orator, supporter of women’s suffrage, and bridge between communities. 

A New OS for Modern New Futures

Douglass is a next generation operating system aligned with the Beloved Community LicenseDouglass breaks down barriers between applications, and gives back privacy and data ownership to users.

Douglass comes with essential apps that protect your data. Douglass is easy to use and keeps your data safe.

Douglass represents the first new computing architecture in 25 years.

The Douglass OS represents a paradigm shift - the next step from centralized to decentralized personal computing with: Native Artificial Intelligence, a Peer to Peer protocol and a Native Decentralized Beloved Community Economics and Governance Service. 

A network of completely decentralized devices

The Douglass OS powers an independent network of completely decentralized devices, a full suite of newly-architected software applications, and integration services to speed the adoption of the platform. 

The Douglass OS and Douglass applications work without any central servers, only you have access to your  encrypted data.
Douglass apps run locally and exchange data directly using the ida:// peer to peer protocol without exposing it to intermediaries even when you work across devices and with others.

The Douglass OS brings a systemic advantage to those who work with it.

  • Own their data
  • Be confident in privacy and security
  • Generate income from the network
  • Participate in Community Empowerment
  • No storage or upload limits
Douglass stores information locally, so you can use as much space as you have for free.

The ida://protocol 

The Douglass includes the ida://protocol— the new peer to peer protocol for a new emancipatory internet.

The ida://protocol is named in honor of Ida B. Wells an African American teacher, journalist, civil rights pioneer and suffragist. Ida B. Wells was one of the founders of the NAACP. Over the course of a lifetime dedicated to combating prejudice and violence, and the fight for African American equality,Wells arguably became the most famous Black woman in America.

FreedomTrain | No Blocks, No Chains

Members of the Underground Railroad often used specific terms, based on the metaphor of the rail way. The Railroad was often known as the "Freedom Train” which headed towards "Heaven" or "the Promised Land"

FreedomTrain is a "Beloved Community Economics" and Governance service. Freedomtrain is socially predistributive (not merely correcting inequalities after the fact), and ecologically regenerative (not merely repairing the damage previously done). The FreedomTrain decentralized block chain is integrated into the Douglass operating system. 

FreedomTrains Beloved Community Economic Network will foster and enable democratic control and community ownership of technology. The Global Douglass community will have a role to play not only in the rate of technological development, but more importantly in its direction.
