BE A FIRST MOVER OR A FAST FOLLOWER, NOT AN OBSOLETE FAILURE
What's next? Imagine Your New Future
What if we live in a digital world that makes everyone great?
Forget the idea that you missed the Internet's big moves and lost to tech's giant platforms. Your post-pandemic digital advances should put you in the lead.
Tech's giants are locked into selling the non-sustainable economy. Because their revenues come from ads and products that help destroy the world, Google, Facebook and Amazon are stuck in the past.
Here's how you can take the lead by outperforming tech's platforms in the ways that count.

DRIVING THE WORLD's ADVANCES
Creating a new kind of "system change technology": Expandiverse Technology cited 1,628 times
Who cites Expandiverse Technology and why?
As tech's leaders invest billions of dollars to create and patent the technologies and products that will lead the world, here are some of the 1,628 citations of Expandiverse Technology.
Abelow self-funded and privately created the Expandiverse because it's scope is "system change." Until recently, corporations and VC's did not fund "system change innovation."
Now, of course, we know we need "system change" because our "system" causes the climate crisis, fails at preparing for pandemics, and perpetuates problems like inequality, global chronic diseases, discrimination and social injustice.
As we face today's challenges, Dan's mission is to help the world become healthy, prosperous and sustainable — by making our "system" include everyone, and work well for every one of us.
An Expandiverse Technology example: One of the combinations, and four of its parts
In 1914 Henry Ford's new Assembly Line started mass production, led to the middle class and changed society.
Now Assembly Layers empower everyone to set their goals and take digital control to reach them. In its new "people-first system," people choose the goals and sustainable companies help them succeed privately and personally. Universal personal success replaces surveillance search, shopping and branded devices. Everybody can rise to be as good as the best with people-first companies who also rise to lead the economy. Everyone can be helped personally to improve their lives and reach their goals.
Expandiverse IP has a 1,400 page specification that the U.S. Patent Office divided into 31 technology categories. Assembly Layers are one of its combinations, and four parts of it are below.
People-first control and privacy
Today's surveillance "system" provides our choices as ads, content and products. In the Expandiverse, each person chooses their goals and takes digital control. During digital steps, their devices show personal solutions privately. New technology switches the "system" to personal and private control of our digital world.
Active Guide delivers the world's best solutions
During digital tasks and steps, Active Knowledge adds "your next best step." These solutions also increase sustainability. As people decide which solutions to use, save and re-use, the system privately learns "what's best." These "best solutions" rise to the top so that everyone can use the best solutions.
A connected ESG Solutions Economy
New connected E-Consumption turns these "best solutions" into private customer-vendor relationships. Since the solutions increase sustainability, they grow an ESG Solutions Economy. Both people and companies rise. As people improve their lives, the non-sustainable economy is made obsolete.
A new norm: Everyone rises to be the world's best
The Expandiverse produces a world where humanity's "best solutions" are continuously discovered and delivered to everyone. As better ESG solutions are discovered, these rise to the top for real-time delivery. The result is a new way to live. People choose the goals. The best solutions help everyone advance every minute.
Previous patents: Over 550 licensees and 4,100 citations
Quantitative evidence of commercial value
Abelow-created patents have been licensed by over 550 companies and cited over 4,100 times (see disclosure).
Abelow used the proceeds from selling his previous IP (Intellectual Property) to fund the private creation of new Expandiverse "system change technology." System change innovation was not funded by corporate R&D and profit-first investors during the 2007 to 2011 years when he started creating this and filing for patents.
Now it's clear that we live in a broken "system" that causes a climate crisis, inequality and other overwhelming problems.
Dan's mission is to create and grow new "system change technology" to help fix our "system" before its looming disasters destroy civilization. If previous licensing and citations are good indicators, these may be widely useful contributions.
Disclosure: Dan Abelow has never sued anyone for patent infringement, but his name was connected to some patent infringement lawsuits filed by others. Abelow sold his previous patent portfolio in 2004 to an Intellectual Ventures company who licensed many leading companies. Intellectual Ventures divested these patents to Webvention and Lodsys who used their patent ownership to license companies and sue some companies for patent infringement. Their lawsuits named the "Abelow patents" that they owned, and they filed the lawsuits. Dan Abelow is a tech creator who has never sued anyone for patent infringement.
Build a healthy, prosperous and sustainable planet that includes everyone
BUILD THE FUTURE WE NEED AND SAVE THE PLANET
Expandiverse example use: Everybody RISE
Start humanity’s next level by 2023 to 2025, then scale it worldwide by 2030
Problem: We have never experienced a healthy, prosperous and sustainable planet that includes everyone. We have never known how to build this.
Challenge: The climate crisis will force us to develop this by about 2023 to 2025, then scale it worldwide by about 2030. We must become a successful planet in years, not generations.
Solution: Everybody Rise is a new kind of operating system and platform for personal, societal and planetary success. This is based on new "system change technology" that has already been cited 1,628 times.
Founder, Everybody RISE
Inventor, Expandiverse Technology
How could we become a sustainable planet of great and successful people today?
With Everybody RISE, everyone chooses their goals. As they go through the day they privately receive the best known sustainable solutions that fit their goals. As people act privately, they save and re-use the solutions that improve their lives. The platform learns privately what people decide is best for them. This improves the solutions it delivers to everyone. We all continuously receive the world's best sustainable solutions, and can each decide whether they help us reach our goals, or not. Our actions to improve our personal lives, and together we guide this world-improvement system in real-time.
Rise analytics and reporting keeps shows us all our personal progress privately. It also shows the world's progress and its gaps as people try to reach the goals they want. For the first time, we can all see the planet's actions, its sustainability and our remaining gaps. For the first time we can fill our gaps rapidly together with an Active Guide that shows us each our "next best steps" — solutions that can help us each reach our goals sooner and also improving the world, delivered privately to each of us throughout the day.
make INNOVATIONS SUCCEEd
Great "User Experiences" make innovations succeed on their first day, and in their every use
Dan Abelow is the founder and principal consultant of Breakthrough UX (formerly Breakthrough Usability). Has added hundreds of UX and CX advances for world-leading companies. Some examples:
- The go-to UX lead and expert for 7 years for an industry-leading company, during which its revenues grew from $6 billion to $22 billion. Improved many products that became #1 in their categories. Helped drive $billions in growth and revenues.
- For example, the UX lead on a Cross-Business Task Force that redesigned a product line stuck at $250 million/year revenues. Shipped in under 6 months. Sales rose to $1.1 billion in a year. Solution was rolled across 36 products. Revenue increased to $2 billion in 2 years and $4 billion in 3 years.
- For example, advanced their e-commerce paradigm from separate online tools to a unified user dashboard that displays each user's current purchases, steps and statuses. This transformed the purchasing experience, increasing e-commerce user satisfaction to higher than the company's in-person businesses. Enabled "online purchasing" to deliver about 90% of this company's $22 billion revenues.
- Designed, built and ran 5 online user learning and testing frameworks to accelerate the speed and scale of UX improvements. Some frameworks were broad and included up to 9 businesses with consistent user success metrics, problem discovery and prioritized improvements.
- Facilitated and reported 18 months of global customer meetings for a world-leading enterprise's redesign of its website and online services. Typical meetings were 2 days in a regional resort where about 40 major customers provided critical feedback of new designs and ideas to 25 to 35 development teams. Each meeting used a wide range processes for customer feedback, testing and learning.
User experience IN RISE'S ESG SOLUTIONS economy
FAST UX: Implement an "ESG Solutions Economy" at global scale
As a world-leading client's Usability Architect, field-developed a user-centered system development process over 18 months. The client formally certified this and rolled it out to over 5,000 development teams worldwide. Using that mindset, developed Everybody RISE's "FAST UX." (FAST is "Find, Act, Save and Transform").
The FAST UX's goal is to transform our world of frequent emergencies to a people-first planet that steadily becomes healthier, sustainable and inclusive, with new ways for everyone to rise to the top.
RISE switches from surveillance e-commerce to direct private E-Consumption
How will RISE make the non-sustainable economy obsolete?
In RISE, everyone can choose their goals. Then RISE's Active Guide delivers the world's best sustainable solutions at the time and place each is needed. The FAST user experience helps to easily try solutions and switch to those that are best for each of us. As our personal control grows, we each improve our life while replacing non-sustainable products and services.
Our personal dashboard shows our progress and the gaps to our goals. By making our personal impact visible, we can consciously grow sustainable companies and make non-sustainable companies obsolete. A new norm can begin: everyone has the power to end the climate crisis by improving their life in sustainable ways. Tipping points change business leaders, economies and the world.
RISE adds Connected E-Consumption that is FAST, direct, private and sustainable
How could Sustainable E-Consumption replace non-sustainable e-commerce?
RISE evolves consumption to direct private connections with sustainable companies. Its FAST UX makes the sustainable economy "walk-up-and-use" simple — easier than today's non-sustainable economy. This starts direct, private relationships between positive people and people-first companies, so they can fix the world's problems together — while excluding and replacing the non-sustainable economy.
When the easiest choices are both sustainable and the world's best solutions, everyone can improve rapidly. People who RISE help end the climate crisis, reduce chronic diseases, overcome inequality and make companies fair and inclusive.
Help lead a positive future
"By creating Expandiverse Technology and Everybody RISE, by 2025 to 2030 we could switch the world from headwinds and obstacles, to tailwinds from people who take control and steadily improve their sustainability, health, inclusion and prosperity."

example SYSTEM architecture: user-controlled esg solutions ECONOMY
People-First Capitalism: User-controlled, live and direct customer-vendor relationships
Tech always disrupts itself. Now private e-consumption can replace surveillance e-commerce
Capitalist economies still reflect Adam Smith's "INVISIBLE hand of the market" from his 1776 milestone publication The Wealth of Nations.
The Expandiverse evolves capitalism to a "people controlled VISIBLE hand of the market." This creates People-First Capitalism which delivers the world people choose, and drives Everybody RISE's new ESG Solutions Economy.
People-First Capitalism is simple. Companies can either serve user-selected goals or be digitally replaced and lose their markets to people-first companies, with people-first employees, hungry to deliver the improved lives and healthy planet that people want.
Companies that lead this new people-first economy will see more data (anonymous and private) so they can roadmap their products and take market share. Each person's privacy is protected, which helps end the surveillance economy. Companies that continue destroying the world can be shown only enough data to guide their survival decisions, so they can join the People-First Economy and re-organize to help deliver the positive world people choose.
People-First Capitalism is a "system change" tech architecture. It empowers people to choose their life's goals privately. People-first companies deliver these in private, by using live and direct customer-vendor relationships.
People could make their personal goals — like health, sustainability, prosperity and inclusion — into visible requirements for trillions of dollars in transactions. People-first companies could respond by taking market share.
If "people-first" changes the world's most powerful companies, they will gain the political influence to evolve the goals of politicians and governments from corporate-first to people-first.
