The WeBMaP scenario enables every webpage to become a connecting point for the four main segments of society: Artists, Businesses, Charities, and Consumers. It allows each of them to meet their needs with every transaction. By making this connection, we are able to harness the energy we expend on giving and taking, and multiply its power through what we create in art and business. It allows us to create a new economic model whereby Artists are paid for their passion, Businesses get to market themselves to an audience that wants to utilize their services, Charities are supported to make the changes we want to see happen in the world, and Consumers can not only find what they are looking for, but can also help change the world and make money in the process.
The technology is in place to create a system as a social media network where a person from any of the four societal segments can find people from each of the other societal segments with similar vision, goals, and intentions. It´s a brave new world. Let´s start shaping it the way we want instead of letting others shape it for us.
