Only the information that can bring harm to others, like certain government

All other information should be shared so that it can be used to push
When all information is stored in a structured way based on international
standards, it can then be automatically organised in unlimited ways, again

platform, on which applications and tools can be built to support all
possible ways we want to view and respond to this information. There should
be all kinds of (visual) interfaces, and these interfaces should automatically
adapt based on current knowledge (a different interface for children),
disabilities (a different interface for blind people), type of work, culture,
environment, device, or current goals.
If all information becomes available to everybody, we will need new systems
for patents, payment in research projects and international laws on copyright.

decisions are made.
In the last decade we have learned that a successful internet applications

to have an easy to use GUI (Graphical User Interface).
We need Graphical User interfaces to do the following:
