Tiptoeing off the World Stage

To continue with the conversation on Instance Phenomenon, or InsP hereafter (Oh, I started this January once only!!), I add here with a definition: “The awareness of an event at the instance that it happens.” For example, when this was said: “In our nation’s capital, killings have risen by 50 percent. They are up nearly 60% in nearby Baltimore.” by the Republican nominee, you instantly are informed of this statement (let’s say because you live in Washington, D.C.). Furthermore, InsP could also mean that when that was said, a ‘fact check’ was performed, and you are instantly informed if the two percentages are correct or not. The first InsP is simple service that applies a filter to TV live broadcast, or a streaming feed of speech text from Twitter-like service – the word phrase you specified earlier will be used to create a notification to your cell once it appears (Yes, both services do not exist to the best of my knowledge).

Another level of InsP if the word ‘awareness’ is replaced with ‘visibility.’ That is, InsP can be visual. For example, the “Chewbacca Mom” will automatically stream to your smart device once the ‘like’ reaches a 50,000 counts (an indicator you manage). Technology has made such InsP possible. And examples are plenty but not universal (I will discuss some in later posts). The goal here is to develop a framework that allows the creation of InsP a known process, and hopefully, with the framework, solutions are available. I will bring in two other topics under the InsP discussion: IoT and Service in next posts.

I would love to have an InsP defined for myself when USexit of the World (a bigger version of Brexit) is a fact – that is, the next USA president is a Republican.
