48 P2P Networking is an independent and open network platform with a focus on community, research and development between peers.It is build with open source architecture, maintains a democratic and cooperative company policy and strives to work sustainably in balance with natural resources.We consist of developers, architects, designers who wish to change the future for the better the smart way: with thinking ahead and by programming of course. We want to bridge the real world with all that is out there: social architecture, governance possibilities, technological progress and a better protection of the Digital Integrity of the Physical Individual.
48 is a universal mathematical symbol considered to be accessible to all. Everybody with an active internet connection can make an account on 48, without conditions.In the first stages we take on Early Adopters, Techies, Dev’Ops and a few more specialized roles to keep things running smoothly.In the next stages we educate and train users to become Webmasters, Developers or Architects.
48 is a work in progress, dependent on the developers running it. We are steadily building towards user goals while still offering a workable environment now. Estimations on the finished version are difficult to pinpoint as we are positioning people, technology, means and networks.A detailed version overview is to appear soon.
48 strives to be boundless by offering future cloud versions. In the mean time our Web Alpha Version (WAVe) is hosted on secure servers in Europe.The Mobile Application is set for Q4 2023.
To remove barriers for users in the usage of (social) media, to protect personal data and to make sharing available in a cooperative manner. This does not mean to freely hand over data, rather it sets the playing field for future markets.We are setting up a professional common ground ready for the world of tomorrow and are making sure the progress is inclusive to all.48 is aimed at a networked transition framework in which aspects of our work and life are evaluated, streamlined and updated.
48 proposes to gamify the transition.
The list below is a guideline to future expansion of 48 but is by no means final.
By combining visions, assemble cooperations, transparent networking, user centric design, feedback mechanisms and thorough development: Gamification, P2P Networks, current and future technology like Web 3.0 & Blockchain.
To do this 48 produces tools and applications – like this website – to maximize user interaction and information exchange.
We design and develop the infrastructure in which the interactions can take place.
Open Source Solutions
The Build of 48 started not so long ago; around December 1st 2023 the plan had formed to setup an independent networking site completely build with open source solutions and focused on a transitional ideology.
The initial build of this website consists of the WordPress architecture but due to interoperability issues and safety standards we are extending our receptors to all kind of generated (IoT) data. This means in essence all functionality you now enjoy will be safeguarded via the extendable mirroring of interfaces.
To take on this hard work we are in need of visionary developers on the one hand and a well informed and educated audience.
In our Build section is to appear a detailed overview of technologies incorporated.
Here we give you an overview of the features as they now are running. We apologize for any outage.

This website is build on experience that we all use different organizing and structuring mechanisms. No single way is superior.By grouping those functions adjacent we involve the probability of flow with the user. This is a process of trial and error, of balances and of choices.We are working towards giving you a better user experience with the means at hand from a user-centric vision.This gamification of the menubar (with colors or symbols) has immediate structuring functions.More on the Flows in a next chapter.
“Flow is the mental state of being completely immersed in an activity.In positive psychology, a flow state, also known colloquially as being in the zone, is the mental state in which a person performing some activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity.”
The Knowledge Base is also a work in progress. It grows over time and has multiple functions to structurizing our data.
It starts of as a simple Wiki, takes on encyclopedia functions, involves personalized study and evolves to a structured and specialized collective Knowledge Base.
Collective memory refers to the shared pool of memories, knowledge and information of a social group that is significantly associated with the group’s identity. The English phrase “collective memory” and the equivalent French phrase “la mémoire collective” appeared in the second half of the nineteenth century. The philosopher and sociologist Maurice Halbwachs analyzed and advanced the concept of the collective memory in the book Les cadres sociaux de la mémoire (1925). Collective memory can be constructed, shared, and passed on by large and small social groups. Examples of these groups can include nations, generations, communities, among others. Collective memory has been a topic of interest and research across a number of disciplines, including psychology, sociology, history, philosophy, and anthropology.
