The first new computing architecture in 25 years brings hardware, software, services, and policy together to create systemic change and culture shift.
Douglass is named for Frederick Douglass — an African American icon who stood for the equality of all peoples and possibility of a better tomorrow. A runaway slave before the Civil War, Douglass became an entrepreneur, advocate for abolition, supporter of women’s suffrage, and bridge between communities. By basing our company on his legacy, we look to bring his sense of hope and determination into the lives of people today.
Douglass is a plug-and-play, independent network of completely decentralized devices, a full suite of newly-architected software applications, and integration services to speed the adoption of the platform.
The Douglass OS brings a systemic advantage to those who work with it.
Douglass is easy to interact with, use, and adopt. The Douglass OS includes an already-working suite of applications that provide the basic functionality that people need in a computing platform. These applications are already operational and configured for the decentralized network, yet follow open source standards and will work with files from other major platforms.
Douglass also represents an opportunity to replace the existing, entrenched enterprise applications that will not integrate with the technical architecture, legal, and policy needs of people using a decentralized network.
These applications enable the necessary phase shift and represent a significant market opportunity for a range of organizations, both private and public.
Douglass Decentralized OS and Devices have been developed from the ground up with the intention of bringing Martin Luther King’s “Beloved Community” and Ghandi’s vision of nonviolence into reality.
To support this social mission, we have created the Beloved Community License, which states that any software or hardware developed for the Douglass platform will not support violence, surveillance, and incarceration.
The BCL sets the stage for a new relationship of technology and business to society. People will see Douglass and the BCL as symbols for actively making the world a better place.
