Data sovereignty - NZ-owned and operated online communication services integrated with RealMe
Domestically-owned, domestically-operated, domestically-hosted, e-mail accounts and social networks linked with 'RealMe' for example.
Special provisions for Maori Data Sovereignty - https://www.temanararaunga.maori.nz/
Can be closed to some extent from the rest of the internet, in order to prevent phishing. Can be used for government communications (e.g. newsfeed), civic engagement (e.g. similar to 'Loomio'), online local and regional voting. And as verification e-mail for various domestic services requiring a higher security level such as internet banking.
Could be integrated with private sector 'eventfinda' event listings, tickets for domestic events and transport, and, allow automated contact tracing if people choose to opt in.
At the very least, they provide a standard for the global service providers to measure up to.
Should be optional.
Why the contribution is important
Data sovereignty - related to https://www.temanararaunga.maori.nz/. Would provide the backbone for the spirit of the treaty to be followed.
While Facebook and Google do a great job for free, as we've seen in Australia recently their interests do not always align with the public good. They also do not make special accommodation to indigenous data right protections - for example they indiscriminately sold data to Cambridge Analytica to allow more targeted advertisements - and as you all know, more targeted advertisements mean that advertisers of any sort would be more able to target certain vulnerable sectors of the community with their ads. This is like selling backdoor access, and is outrageous outside of an intimate context.
