Free Thought Project 2020 is a project that promises to provide free thought and ideas to the world, a mission inspired by the philosophy of the late Steve Jobs.
The goal of Project 2020 was to build a platform that would allow users to submit their own ideas, and then, through a series of polls, a voting system that would determine which ideas made it to the platform and how many votes they had.
The platform was launched in 2018, and it was subsequently featured in The Economist, the Financial Times, Mashable, Business Insider, TechCrunch, and others.
However, it has since been criticized for its high number of spam submissions, its tendency to spam and its lack of transparency.
As of November 2018, over 300 million submissions were received by the platform.
The project was recently rebranded to Project Xcloud, but the same idea was brought back into focus.
“Project Xcloud is a new way of sharing and exchanging ideas in a fun and friendly way,” Project Xclover’s project manager, Ben Smith, told TechCrunch.
“We’re trying to provide the best platform for the free and open-minded to share ideas and get feedback, while also empowering creators and giving them access to the best tools and resources.”
The idea for Project Xcathel came about when a group of students in the United States went to visit the UK in late 2019, where the idea for a project was already being developed.
“They went to a conference, and they came back to visit a friend who’s been in the UK for a few years and they had this idea,” Smith said.
“So we’re like, let’s make a platform, let us make a place where people could come and get inspired and share their ideas.”
After being approached by Project XCloud, the group set up a Slack channel and launched the project.
Smith said the project is not connected to any specific company, but rather a collection of free-thinking students who are committed to the open-source philosophy and free-thought ideals that Jobs believed in.
“The goal of the project was to provide a place to share the ideas and give people a chance to get to know each other,” Smith explained.
“But we want to build something that we all want to see, because it’s an incredibly important thing.”
To date, Project Xcatshouldn’t have a dedicated team of developers or any of the major tools available.
Instead, it’s built on the ideas that the students have created and is open to the community.
The free-form project allows users to enter their ideas and then submit them, and the team is currently working on adding more features to the system.
Smith and his team have said that the project has been featured in the Financial Journal, BusinessWeek, Mashability, Mash Magazine, Mash Technology, The Economist and others, and that it has received over 2.5 million votes.
The team hopes to release more features as time goes on, and has launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for further development.
