Sentient beings deploy methods of articulate expression of attentive focus within spatial visual environments, in order to effectively understand and make use of either the real world, or digital environments modeled by any means.
In technical domains like design and construction
[— unlike in ordinary domains like, anything, I don’t know… like waking up from sleep, walking to the kitchen and making breakfast —]
these expressions (of attentive focus) are made visually tangible, and durable, and shareable. When making breakfast, the expressions are more fleeting, are not written down, and are not shared with anyone else, and certainly not before coffee.
Advice on funding for open source development is welcome. If you have any advice, contact me so I can apply it to the development proposed here: https://tangerinefocus.com/2022/10/17/afr-tgn-proposed-development/
If you have developers or funds available for contribution to the TGN open source development project, contact me.
Reputable developers and end users are interested. Now it’s about kicking the project off from wanting to doing.
The pitch is that the open source TGN core built for use by all (in all softwares) reduces cost for everyone, enforces TGN core standardization and quality, and avoids everyone having to build the same core from scratch on their own.
Develop TGN, the proposed open source standardized core features of the broader AFR (Attention Focusing Rigs) concept
Why is it needed?
Sentient beings require methods of articulate expression of attentive focus within spatial visual environments, in order to effectively understand and make use of either the real world, or digital environments modeled by any means.
Why is it a good idea?
– Attention focusing articulation within models is fundamentally needed and largely overlooked so far in model handling software.
– AFR can be tuned to each developer’s needs, as each developer can envision.
– all AFR developers and users benefit from the TGN open source AFR core, enabling AFR rigs to be shared across modeling apps with adequate visual fidelity, to the level defined by the community-managed TGN standard.
– other open source, commercial, and end user developers are interested in TGN.
Where can I know more?
https://tangerinefocus.com/2022/10/17/afr-tgn-proposed-development/ includes the 8 primary features of the TGN proposed open standard, and a functional developer specification.
