We are building a platform for creating cross-site layers of information on top of websites and apps.
Content Glass is a stratification technology for websites and apps.
It is used to stratify the world with contextual information.
Content Glass can be used on websites, mobile apps or wireless devices to associate information with predefined states. Information is stored by Content Glass in the form of CG-Widgets. CG-Widgets are mini-apps. They combine data-structure and programmable logic. Apps can use Content Glass API to create, access and manipulate widgets by defining layers that represent a condition in the context of an app.
We call this methodology: State Oriented Sharing
State - because layers of information are associate with some given state or context: A code, web URL, event, location, words, search term, phone number, physical measurement, physiological state etc'
Oriented - because information is driven by state. Information will be presented, run, used, operated, make an effect when state's condition occur.
Sharing - because information and/or its effect is shared among site visitors, app users, people out there, client programs, devices, or any other form of digital information consumer.
The information shared by Content Glass may be visible or not in any case it is exposed, used or make an effect given some condition. For example a note, picture or a video is a kind of visible information. Personalized state of website is invisible information however given some condition we will see its effect and this effect can be shared among multiple users, groups and.or with all visitors of a website.
Using Content Glass Client-Side API developers can create highly sophisticated applications without the effort of dealing with server-side programming. In addition CG API for web is equipped with application-framework that make it possible for any website to be application-able, meaning that website can be extended by either in-house or third party apps without need to change anything in the code of the website.
Content Glass is a great vision but also an everyday practice for us to program the web. Our main focus so far was to bring the Web Client API into an initial level that let us use it for creating multiple web apps. We have created a the CG-Button social-tool that let any user to share widgets on top of any website that does not block third party scripts. We then moved into experimental stage focusing e-Commerce platform, playing with the notion of experts-glass and showing how Content Glass can be used to stratify Shopify websites.
This year (2017) we plan to make another step forward and present Content Glass Cloud - set of Content Glass applications that share common backbone, work in synergy with each other and inspired by Content Glass vision and State Oriented Sharing methodology. More then that we will offer franchise model so that small entrprenourial groups can take an app, bring it market and enjoy its fruits. The exact franchise model was not yet established but now it is already quite obvious that each of these app should get full stack attention and each of these apps will have its own life experience.
Content Glass is developed by Rhizome Networks LTD. Investors and entrepreneurs that wants to join this vision and take part in Content Glass Cloud joint-ventures are welcome to Contact .
