Entry Nr 8: What is the opposite of Panopticon Contest? : brXerland
brXerland: It would be just and very nice to know that at any given time an individual has the right to view the entirety or part of the data that is available on him/her -- who or what has entered (t)his/her data (and when) -- who or what has consulted his/her data (and when), who or what has modified his/her data (and when) -- to add and amend his/her data, and to know that fundamentally it is his/her sole property ownership, this data. (The Universal Declaration of Human Rights) It is impossible to imagine data disappearing or vanishing with out the entire internet or substantially large parts of it being rendered inert in an internet of things scenario.

It is highly likely that the opposite of Panopticon may be found somewhere in between Atman and Anima mundi - “Therefore, we may consequently state that: this world is indeed a living being endowed with a soul and intelligence -- a single visible living entity containing all other living entities, which by their nature are all related.” ~ Plato
“The root *ēt-men (breath) is cognate with Old English "æþm", Greek "asthma", German "Atem": "atmen" (to breathe). The Spanish word "alma" (soul) is not related to "ātman". It is derived from Latin "anima" (breath,soul), which is cognate to Sanskrit "ánilaḥ" (wind). Although "ánilaḥ" and "ātman" have similar meaning, they are not etymologically related.” ~ Wikipedia, Atman

The 'paradeigma' is one of an "ecology" between all men and women, their systems, their machines and the resources available.
But it all starts with the individual now! Doesn't it?
