20 Topic Brainstorm on The Outcome Economy

2019-04-15

In an effort to develop my thinking about how The Outcome Economy might transpire, I've brainstormed a list of ideas for blog post/essay topics.

  1. How do outcomes/solutions work in the real world of enterprise software?
  2. Map the IT stack – electronics, hardware, software, services, solutions?
  3. The role of machine-to-machine intelligence in producing outcomes
  4. An example concierge service – muscle gain – which open services would that consume?
  5. What will be the challenges/high costs of producing a concierge service?
  6. 5 Pieces of Evidence that the Outcome Economy is Emerging
  7. 5 Pieces of Evidence to Suggest the Outcome Economy is Not Emerging
  8. How concierge services might be delivered through decentralised autonomous organisations
  9. Decentralised Service Orchestration – what it is, how it'll work
  10. Ocean Protocol's Decentralised Orchestration – What it Is, How it Works etc.
  11. Software Services are Converging through Decentralisation, but Why?
  12. The Outcome Economy Thesis – what's missing in the stack for it to be a reality?
  13. An examination of existing orchestration machines
  14. Outcomes through the lens of Wright's Law – Cost of Production Analysis
  15. What would need to be true for Facebook/Google to be vulnerable to a cryptonetwork? (new costs of building and scaling information networks)
  16. Design a concierge service
  17. Clarify the difference between self-serve and concierge software
  18. Investigating the role of personal data in creating concierge services
  19. What are blockchains really for?
  20. The UX of Concierge Services – what's the interaction model of the next generation of consumer software application?
  21. Novel or 10X Better – an examination of possible concierge services
  22. Concierge Capital – on value capture in the next generation of software applications

Now that I've made this list, I think it's possible and interesting to categorise them. The list above seem to fall into the following categories—

  • Explaining the Thesis
  • Falsifying the Thesis
  • The Current Model/Costs of Delivering Concierge Services
  • How Concierge Services Might be built, Technologically
  • Designs for Concierge Services

And to make that a bit more concrete, here is the list above, ordered by category—

Explaining the Thesis

  • What will be the challenges/high costs of producing a concierge service?
  • Software Services are Converging through Decentralisation, but Why?
  • Clarify the difference between self-serve and concierge software
  • What are blockchains really for?
  • Concierge Capital – on value capture in the next generation of software applications

Falsifying the Thesis

  • 5 Pieces of Evidence that the Outcome Economy is Emerging
  • 5 Pieces of Evidence to Suggest the Outcome Economy is Not Emerging
  • What would need to be true for Facebook/Google to be vulnerable to a cryptonetwork? (new costs of building and scaling information networks)

The Current Model/Costs of Delivering Concierge Services

  • How do outcomes/solutions work in the real world of enterprise software?
  • Map the IT stack – electronics, hardware, software, services, solutions?
  • An examination of existing orchestration machines

Concierge Service Design

  • The role of machine-to-machine intelligence in producing outcomes
  • How concierge services might be delivered through decentralised autonomous organisations
  • An example concierge service – muscle gain
  • Decentralised Service Orchestration – what it is, how it'll work
  • Ocean Protocol's Decentralised Orchestration – What it Is, How it Works etc.
  • The Outcome Economy Thesis – what's missing in the stack for it to be a reality?
  • Outcomes through the lens of Wright's Law – Cost of Production Analysis
  • Design a concierge service
  • Investigating the role of personal data in creating concierge services
  • The UX of Concierge Services – what's the interaction model of the next generation of consumer software application?
  • Novel or 10X Better – an examination of possible concierge services

It's highly unlikely that I will write every one of these articles. But I hope to touch on each topic in the coming months.
