Welcome to TARTLE! As cheesy as it sounds, we want to walk you through our mission and vision. Don’t worry, this won’t take long. We can condense why we do what we do into three main principles:
Data sharing is an important part of human progress. Today, our personal data is being maximized by other entities for activities that do not necessarily benefit us. It’s time to reclaim our data and empower ourselves.
Everybody has the potential to become data champions. Your work with TARTLE is your first step. Your next step will be using your work to give others the opportunity to become data champions as well.
Regardless of who we are or where we come from, we deserve full transparency. When people are open and willing to share their experiences, we unlock the potential to evolve as a collective.
Under the present system, we find ourselves shoehorned into data silos. We are in the dark about what happens with our data and the benefits that can be derived from it. Complete and total knowledge means there is no gap between what we know about data and what we do with our data.
Our data is a record of our authentic human experience. It holds our knowledge, habits, choices, health, and much more. When this information stops being hoarded for the profit or the advantage of corporations and governments, we make the internet a place everyone can be a part of.
The internet is a tool we should use to come together and solve global problems beyond borders.
Have you ever been to a concert? You enter as an individual, but when the beat drops you become part of the crowd. Everybody is on a high when the music starts.
That’s the kind of empowerment we believe comes from owning our data. We hold the key to solving the most pressing problems of humanity. We only need to know that we are not alone in our struggle.
Here at TARTLE, you’re not just doing work for the sake of work. We are a team of people who want to help humanity. It’s a grand ambition, but we are confident that we can make a tangible difference.
Throughout history, entire movements took decades of work to create, shape, and ground their principles in reality. We ask you to join TARTLE and think of your work as a part of a bigger picture. You are taking small steps that help propel our mission and vision forward.
Alexander McCaig (00:10):
So, go ahead. What do you want to talk about?
Jason Rigby (00:12):
I want to talk about understanding the mission and vision of TARTLE. Oh, oh, okay. I just lost people. Everybody's like-
Alexander McCaig (00:18):
Oh God, not again.
Jason Rigby (00:19):
... mission and vision statement.
Alexander McCaig (00:20):
Jason Rigby (00:21):
I'm working for a company. They always have a mission and a vision. Here's the part that I don't like. I've been with so many companies and they'll have their purpose statement on the wall. They'll have their big mission and vision. I like Google's do no evil. It's assumed that you're automatically going to be doing evil.
Alexander McCaig (00:40):
Yeah. You're always doing bad stuff.
Jason Rigby (00:42):
Yeah. I think they took it down though, but it was on the wall. But I mean, you see all these and then it's like, no one's living it.
Alexander McCaig (00:48):
Jason Rigby (00:48):
You really know the real deal. The real deal is you're wanting shareholder value and you're wanting to make shit loads of money.
Alexander McCaig (00:55):
Jason Rigby (00:56):
So the mission and vision statement is just some cutesy thing that's there, that made look nice as a plaque or something like that. Maybe the CEO talks about it occasionally, but it's not in the way that they work. It's not in their daily lives and it's not who they are and what they do.
Alexander McCaig (01:15):
We live and die by this mission, vision at TARTLE.
Jason Rigby (01:18):
Yeah. And so I want to get into the mission. So we're taking this directly and anyone can get at this online.
Alexander McCaig (01:23):
Jason Rigby (01:23):
It's on our website, our TARTLE media kit. And we even have the link in your onboarding documents for this. But TARTLE's mission is to elevate humanity through the sharing of data. Pretty simple.
Alexander McCaig (01:34):
Jason Rigby (01:34):
That's our mission.
Alexander McCaig (01:34):
I mean, bread and butter about what TARTLE Technology does is it allows human knowledge to go from party A to party D. That's all it is. The more knowledge that goes back and forth, the more we elevate ourselves. Right?
Jason Rigby (01:52):
Yeah. We've all gone to raves or you like EDM. I like EDM. And I know globally, it's great. Especially like Europe, you guys have it down.
Alexander McCaig (02:03):
Jason Rigby (02:04):
Trans music and stuff like that. But it's almost like TARTLE's the DJ. And it's the concert itself.
Alexander McCaig (02:15):
Jason Rigby (02:15):
There's millions of people-
Alexander McCaig (02:16):
Coming to experience.
Jason Rigby (02:17):
... and you get to be the DJ actually. TARTLE's not the DJ, it's just the-
Alexander McCaig (02:22):
It's just the stage.
Jason Rigby (02:23):
... the stage. And we're providing the opportunity to talk to millions. That art that you create, that creativity that you have, if it slaps-
Alexander McCaig (02:31):
Yeah. You're the DJ, you send it out.
Jason Rigby (02:33):
Alexander McCaig (02:33):
You're going to see everyone's vibe with it. Do you know what I mean?
Jason Rigby (02:36):
But, that feeling that if you've gone to an EDM concert, you know this, that feeling that everybody gets together, when they're listening to the music. And everybody's dancing and everything's all the same.
Alexander McCaig (02:45):
Jason Rigby (02:46):
And there's this great feeling that you experience, without drugs even. I watch people, it's so funny.
Alexander McCaig (02:54):
Uh. Where's my water bottle.
Jason Rigby (02:55):
Yeah. It's like, dude. It's like you're drunk or you're taking drugs or something like that.
Alexander McCaig (03:00):
Jason Rigby (03:01):
But, then you see the people that are like clear eyed and just enjoy that music.
Alexander McCaig (03:05):
Jason Rigby (03:06):
And it creates this unity. You see this unity. I mean, you have the fools that are fighting out in the back.
Alexander McCaig (03:11):
Yeah. But what's happening, human creativity. This essentially sound, which is data.
Jason Rigby (03:16):
Alexander McCaig (03:17):
Is being shared to a large group and the whole group is emotionally elevated.
Jason Rigby (03:23):
Alexander McCaig (03:24):
So now what happens? Let's go even bigger. We've got 225 countries.
Jason Rigby (03:28):
Alexander McCaig (03:28):
All of these people are incentivized to share knowledge, to elevate emotions, understanding, culture, all those things all at the same time. So TARTLE's mission is to elevate humanity through the sharing of data. Like anything else that gets shared. What happens when the sun comes out? Things bloom. The sun is sharing light photons.
Jason Rigby (03:48):
Alexander McCaig (03:49):
The earth thrives off of the sun.
Jason Rigby (03:50):
Alexander McCaig (03:51):
Okay. So the data should be sharing everywhere so that it can actually elevate humanity. But it can't be ad hoc, just shotgun spraying it. Right? It has to have the structure where we can wrap our heads around it and define it.
Jason Rigby (04:04):
Alexander McCaig (04:04):
And that's what's important. So what does that lead us to the vision then?
Jason Rigby (04:07):
Alexander McCaig (04:08):
So if we're doing all that, what's the vision?
Jason Rigby (04:10):
TARTLE has the vision of a world where complete and total knowledge is shared. Let's stop right there. TARTLE has a vision of a world where complete and total knowledge is shared.
Alexander McCaig (04:21):
Yeah. Complete and total knowledge means there's no gap. It's 100% transparency. It's full truth. No one's giving half the picture. It's where people are open and willing to share absolutely everything because in doing so, it helps that individual evolve and the people that interact with that information to evolve.
Jason Rigby (04:44):
Yeah. And it says and our most pressing problems that threaten the stability and existence of human beings.
Alexander McCaig (04:50):
Yeah. So everything that is currently a challenge for human civilization, it's kind of a self prescribed future we've given to ourselves.
Jason Rigby (05:03):
Alexander McCaig (05:04):
We've created these chain of events, but we haven't really done a good job of mapping how we got there and where we plan to go. So the idea is that our most pressing problems that threaten stability in the existence of human beings, it's solved with data.
Jason Rigby (05:23):
Alexander McCaig (05:24):
Data gives us the record and it also tells us where we want to go. And so if all of us are sharing complete and total knowledge, habits, choices, health, everything, we start to solve so many things. Why? Because everything's wide open for everyone to be a part of.
Jason Rigby (05:38):
Yeah. And you have solved with data in a collective and collaborative effort.
Alexander McCaig (05:43):
Yeah. So collective, we all have to come together because these are global problems. It doesn't just have one country solve it. Where the United States starts to get big old chesty and think that they can handle everything. Right? You can't.
Jason Rigby (05:55):
Alexander McCaig (05:56):
This is something is inextricably interlinked with us all. And we all have to come together to solve it. So the collective of human beings need to collaborate with their work and their problem solving abilities. Because human beings are so good at solving problems if it's put in front of them and they're challenged with it. Okay?
Jason Rigby (06:12):
Yes. It's going to happen. And the big seven, I think, everyone needs to click on... You can go to tartle.co. If you're looking at working for TARTLE, the number one thing you need to do is go to our big seven page.
Alexander McCaig (06:23):
Absolutely. Because then you see, how is it that this data helps those individuals who need the resources and the ones who are taking action in the best interest of humanity at large.
Jason Rigby (06:33):
And there's a mini doc that you've done explaining the big seven. We have multiple in there. And we encourage everyone to watch all of those so that you understand. You have to understand exactly why we're doing what we're doing.
Alexander McCaig (06:46):
Yeah. Why we live and die by what we do here.
Jason Rigby (06:48):
I mean the big seven is the vision for data.
Alexander McCaig (06:51):
Correct. When the sun goes down.
Jason Rigby (06:55):
Alexander McCaig (06:56):
On my side of town. Right?
Jason Rigby (06:58):
Alexander McCaig (06:58):
Great song, by the way. We need to know where we're headed. We need to choose how we want to define our future. And the first step for that definition is the sharing of that information here at TARTLE that can help actually gear ourselves towards solving those pressing problems that fall with under the big seven.
Jason Rigby (07:18):
Yeah. And whether you're a software developer in Pakistan or whether you're a graphic designer in Canada.
Alexander McCaig (07:25):
Jason Rigby (07:25):
It does not matter. TARTLE is a global company. We have a global perspective. We're not just looking at the United States.
Alexander McCaig (07:32):
Jason Rigby (07:32):
We're looking across, as your vision tests, across all nations and peoples.
Alexander McCaig (07:36):
Correct. It doesn't matter where you are, where you're from, race, religion, creed, order. Don't care. If you have the skills, the self responsibility and the wherewithal to go get this done, we're here for you.
Jason Rigby (07:47):
And you agree with the philosophy that TARTLE has. And we did a whole video-
Alexander McCaig (07:50):
We've done so much.
Jason Rigby (07:51):
... on the philosophy at TARTLE.
Alexander McCaig (07:52):
Because we're only here to respect free will.
Jason Rigby (07:54):
Alexander McCaig (07:54):
And champion self responsibility.
Jason Rigby (07:56):
So to close us out, if somebody wants to have us have a conversation with them, what's the best way to do that, to be an employee at TARTLE?
Alexander McCaig (08:05):
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org. And for me to close this out, I just want to read the mission and vision just so you hear it from the horse's mouth. TARTLE's mission is to elevate humanity through the sharing of data. Tartle has a vision of a world where complete and total knowledge is shared. And our most pressing problems that threaten the stability and existence of human beings are solved with data in a collective and collaborative effort across all nations and peoples.
Speaker 3 (08:50):
Thank you for listening to TARTLECAST, with your hosts Alexander McCaig and Jason Rigby, where humanity steps into the future and source data defines the path. What's your data worth.
