SAFE Route Planner


I want:

  • Dropbox with file synch to non-SAFE drives which handles nasty edge cases (like file rename - which Dropbox does ok but SpiderOak messes up, or at least used to).
  • scheduled backup with a nice UI for browsing what is there and retrieving stuff
  • Firefox plugin to handle “safe:” URLs
  • secure email and messaging (Thunderbird like?): within SAFE
  • secure email and messaging: extended to integrate with existing email (to facilitate some kind of migration over time as old contacts join SAFE (able to import contacts/messages from major email clients & webmail services)
  • facebook killer. No “killer” is not a strong enough word ;-). Borrow best features from fb and diaspora. Add a personalisable “StackExchange” like ranking or reputation system for on/off-app contacts and on/off-app content sources. Filters/ranking start with communal settings, but which I can turn up and down individually based on my appreciation or dislike of content from different sources. So I can tune, to include more/less from other rankers, sources etc. as well as get the benefit of communal ratings as a default, but I become the ultimate arbiter of what gets prominence in my feed, search etc.
  • native SAFE apps to replace: Search (with ranking/filters as for “facebook killer” above), LibreOffice, Web Browser, SSH and x11vnc clients (for connecting outside SAFE - at the last hop?), YouTube, GIMP
  • SAFE bootable (immutable) OS so I can run all the native apps without an insecure OS underneath, but with ability to run sandboxed (VM?) Linux and Linux+Wine (and maybe Windows) for apps I can’t get on SAFE OS yet. Problem here is going to be drivers for peripherals no (printer, camera, mobile)?

I would like to see a decentralised exchange that provides a secure and private platform for all users to buy and trade safecoin for crypto currencies and fiat.


An app for a new decentralized press along with a platform for whistleblowers to blow the lid off of the details of evil that go on unreported today.

It will need people and a system to verify truth verses falsehood.

  1. File sharing / public share index app.

  2. Website building app(s) for dynamic content on SAFE.


‘Topple the Oppressor’ mobile app with meshnet support

A complete package of the stuff you’d need to topple a regime. Whistleblowing, organising, messaging, safehouse, live feeds, etc etc


I would take a better look at Friendica which is federated, decentralized and connects to multiple socnets. I’d like to get a friendica port to SAFE (or friendica clone for safe but a port would be better because then it could connect with the rest of the friendica network).


An aggregated, clean, slick, searchable site that streams video from user-uploaded content with a direct line for payment. Also, a nice little system for creating playlists that link directly to the content, similar to’s setup, if the content was accessible and money went to the creators.


A music site or channel, where music, movies or clips can be viewed or streamed either paid or free…

The unstoppable, peaceful, inevitable, effective 99% Revolution operationalized…great idea & I can see this happening!!!

Network99 (read about it at is the idea of users viewing, listening, downloading in an unlimited way and FREE from a myriad of artist-based channels who upload their music, live shows, netcasts, independent films, etc and the artist makes 99% of the SafeCoin revenue received by the application from the SAFE Network. This ingenious economic model comes courtesy of MaidSafe who have wrapped SafeCoin payment to app wallets into the technology. What a future for artists, musicians and filmmakers! May the best apps win the race!!!


This is the idea of SAFEx and may the best apps win the race!

SAFE-MED, Medical Electronic Database

Patients securely regain total control of their personal health information and have final say how, where and who has access. Medical providers get to say good bye to proprietor centralized authority approach that has resulted in >31 million individual US citizen data breaches since 2006. This will ultimately decrease the creator/caretaker (clinicians) exposure to liability and more importantly it will loosen the dependency on governments, corporations, IT security, data centers, and attorneys who want to back seat practice medicine. The SAFE network will allow us medical professionals to happily put our focus on what we do best! Serve the people.

I’ve started a review article that will hopefully show how easy (compared to the 600 billion the US has spent electronic medical charting system) the SAFE Network will change the world for the better. “Where doctors and patients rediscover Secure Access For Everyone, SAFE-MED.”


A plant database. Where to find them, how to grow them, edibility, medicinal properties, history, spirituality, physical characteristics, scientific latin names, how to prepare for medicinal usage, dosages, different uses, practical industrial uses, so forth and so on. I’m thinking same could be done for all biology, why limit to just plants, but since I have a particular interest in herbal medicine that’s what I’m thinking of. This could integrate with the SAFE Med app. Also I would like to see a way for “anedotal” evidence to be clearly catalogued and analyzed. There are so many people without formal degrees having their own experiences but and reporting data but not getting any recognition. Being able to input, compare, contraste, catagorize and analye “anecdotal” evidence would be validating for the common person having said experience and invaluable for the scientific (and spiritual for that matter) community.


Also perhaps a tiny app that would work as a user interface and work with other apps. Say someone wants to publish something. The app would ask what kind of thing it is? Is it subjective or objective? Is it your own personal experience? How do you want to format it, scientici paper, use the scientific method to develop your own project, fill out as much of a little report for the anecdotal database as you can, etc etc, all these options and formats for people so they can just pull up these form letters so to speak for these different apps and fill them out. And information could be sent (voluntarily of course using checkboxes or something) to multiple apps and databases. Say you were doing a research paper on a specimen of plant, you’d submit it to the plant database and if the plant had medicinal properties to SAFE Med as well.

Unfortunately, I don’t believe anecdotal evidence would be considered any kind of evidence at all by the scientific community, purely because it is “anecdotal”. There is no scientific method involved, therefore any results would be highly dubious.This may be useful to further “spiritual” or other areas and is often used in support of therapies such as Homeopathy etc, which have absolutely no scientific basis whatsoever - quite the opposite in fact…


And this is where I get really frustrated with the “scientific” community. But let me try to explain in the calmest and most rational way I can how “anecdotal” evidedence can be of use to the scientific community. The key is the database and ANALYZING all the data and taking it in context. I repeat the is analasis and examing things in context. Say you have x number of cases and they’re all different, or seemingly so, but you’re getting reports of a “cure” that seems to work for all of them. You don’t dismiss it. You file it away and look for commonalities between those that utilize the cure and those that don’t. Sometimes this isn’t immediately apparent. As sometimes you have to analize things like whether someone was vacinated or not and how that might have affected their immune system over the last couple decades. You might have to analize someone’s diet or environment. Sometimes things might be immediately apparent once you get a bunch of reports together like economic status, behavioral, psychological or physical symptoms, age ranges, duration of the illness, and so forth. The point here is to make the data available so that if one has a hypothosis one can look at the data and say “oh hello here’s a pattern.” Then one takes that and does further tests to confirm or disprove it. And THEN one takes those results in turn as the further hard evidence to put in your nice “scientific” reports. Likewise if you notice a pattern it would inspire further hypothoses and tests to be done. If a group of people are complaining of stomach pain and say that a certain herb cures it does it not spark the question “why?” It could be for any number of reasons. The herb could be surpressing the symptoms, could be curing a gas problem they all had that was causing the pain, could be fighting an infection they had, could be a hullicinagenic and they are all getting high off it, whatever, but the point is they all eat the stuff, they all say it fixes them and it’s a starting place to look. We utilize the scientific method far more than we think. You say anedotal evidence isn’t derived using the “scentific method” and I would be to differ. The scientific method is to make an observation, develop a hypothos (an idea) based on that observation, test it using experimentation, and revise. We do that kind of thing on a daily basis. And anecdotal evidence, espeically health related evidence, is based on that method. We observe something about our health, draw some conclusion, test it, revise our conclusion and try again according to the revised data. Anecdotal evidence might not be in the right format or be formalized to the “scientific” community’s satisfaction but that doesn’t mean it’s not based on the scientific method. That’s where the app comes in to analize the raw data and to help format it in such a way as to find out what evidence there is and to present it to the scientific community in a format of their liking.


We have actually started to speak to the NHS (UK National Health Service) about the network and it’s usefulness in managing massive data sets privately and securely. Discussions are at a very early stage and, while the NHS is not known to move particularly quickly, early signs are positive. This is happening as a result of the Scottish Minister for Health Alex Neil visiting MaidSafe during July.


Well your early stages seem to be far ahead of where my country and I are currently. I appreciate your efforts and your words are quite encouraging for me. My plan is to write this review article, get it published, get my hospital network/system to adopt. Fortunately/unfortunately my hospital network is a national leader in the US and they have some of the earliest published papers (70’s) with regard to computer technologies in the clinic setting. From there I don’t see any reason why it will not spread like wild fire.

I am slowly formulating my network of experts to build it. I would love to hear any updates on the matter you may have in the in the future. Collaboration would be priceless. I just started with a very rough draft, so go easy (Okay to not look at it now), but it gives a glimpse into one of my multiple starting points; Electrophysiological Authentication and the Decenteralized Internet: Solution for an autonomous decentralized personal controlled electronic health record - Authorea Team


Hope this will lead to decentralized Medicine … Remember the days when the doctor would visit you at home? With your data with you all the time, medical practice can start being personal once again.
