Leonardo Network

Abstract
A six figure part time income by blogging is possible through the Leonardo Network. Leonardo is a multi pathway system of induced virality based upon mutually beneficial behavior among its members.  Authors will have 140+ D15IQ, be polymathic and be excellent thinkers and writers.  Readers will be from the top 5% of the population in intellectual sophistication.  Leonardo Bloggers will be the primary source of article writers for The Polymath.
Leonardo Theory
Leonardo will become a kind of hybrid super intelligence in which each node of the neural network, a Leonardo blogger, will make a 
determination of the importance of each article they receive and pass on to their subscribers about 25% of them. In this way, virality will not be based solely upon 'least common denominator' (kitten videos and celebrity gossip) but also upon an intellectually sophisticated consensus of Leonardo members.

This will be extremely disruptive to the current, highly partisan and demagogic status quo.  The controversy these articles create will only serve to increase Leonardo's reach.  I have found this with 'The Inappropriately Excluded'.  Because it is controversial, it is approaching 100,000 views while most of my articles only get 3,000 to 5,000 views.

Practical Careers
However, being a Leonardo Blogger is definitely designed to be a paying gig, low six figures USD in the first year and high six figures by year three.  And, that is part time.  

I know that many people think that blogging is a good way to starve, because they want to argue with me about it.  It is true that if you set up a blog, monetize it through Adsense and promote it to your warm market, you won't make much money at all.  Of course, imitating people who are failing has never been a good strategy for success.

So, with Leonardo, we have developed a way of turning your warm market into truly significant traffic and getting a more appropriate and market standard $8CPM for your monetization strategy. 

This is being organized by The Polymathic Institute, whose mission is to promote polymathic research, education, careers, community and lifestyles.  The Polymath and Leonardo will do this generally but also specifically for about 1,200 Institute Members.

The Basic Mechanics
First, Leonardo is not meant for all bloggers.  It is the affiliated blogosphere to The Polymath, a weekly PDF magazine publishing articles at the highest level of intellectual sophistication.  So, according to the Simonton Gap (persuasiveness maxima at 1.2σ IQΔ), Leonardo  will have a mean IQ of 3.5σ ± .8 or a 15 point deviation IQ of 140+.  Of course, erudition and quality writing skills are also critical.  However, they can be developed and one's IQ is pretty much what it is.
So, here is what we are planning to do.  If you haven't already done so, you will first start a blog.  Don't get too deeply into presentation at first.  Your readers are driven by ideas, not graphics.  You will also get an email service.  I use MailChimp which is free to 2,000 subscribers and reasonable thereafter.  I have one account for The Polymath and one for my personal blog.

Your next objective is to get your 'Warm Market' to subscribe.  When I did this I got 350 of my 1,100 Facebook Friends to subscribe immediately.  I got another 400 from other social media networks.  Your goal is 1,000 to start, which I exceeded in about two months.  Your average views should be around 3,000.  That is because you will overtly encourage sharing of your articles.

With an 8 page blog per week and $8CPM.  Your weekly income is $192.  However, even though $8CPM is sort of an industry minimum, you won't get anywhere near that relying on Google or Amazon.  That's where a lot of blogs die.  They get a couple thousand page views, but they earn less than $20 per week and they just give up.  Leonardo fixes that, but I'll talk about that later.

Next, you join The Polymathic Institute and, from there, join the Leonardo Project.  There, you will subscribe to four Leonardo bloggers and strive to get four of them to subscribe to you.  That will be the average.

Every Leonardo Blogger will send a weekly email to their subscribers that will include  a relatively short introduction and Abstracts (with link) to his or her weekly article and about four articles received from Leonardo Bloggers to which they have subscribed.  This means that on average, each Leonardo Blogger will be presented to their three thousand readers and the 12,000 readers of four other Leonardo Bloggers.

This is income of 15×8×8=$960 per week or $49,920 per year.  That is a good goal at 3 months.  For many participants this is sufficient to quit their job.


But, this is only the beginning.  SEO, backlinks and downstream subscriptions will grow your circulation.  Most will come from the induced virality of the Leonardo Network.

The average article will go four generations before dieing out.  In other words, one of your four Leonardo subscribers will include your abstract in their email and one of his or her Leonardo subscriber will do the same until the fourth generation when the interest gradient (explained later) causes virality to die out.  So, there are 4⁴ or 256 Leonardo members that over time receive one of your articles.  That seems like 256×3,000=768,000 potential subscribers.  However, it is more than that.  That is because the average subscriber has at least 500 contacts.  

So, ignoring the already subscribed, over time your exposure is 256×1,000×500=128,000,000.  Of course, in reality, there will be duplicate routes to the same reader and the actual pool is likely smaller.  But still over 10,000,000.

If you write an average article, it will go out to 1,000×4=4,000 subscribers but also go out to 2,000×4=8,000 viral readers.  My experience is, even with in text or pop up subscriprion  boxes, only about 1% will sign up.  Still for the rest of the first year, that is 80×39=3,120 new subscribers.  That is the basic structure of Leonardo and, if you think deeply about it, you will see why it works.  You may even have a visual image of articles being like electric impulses in the brain, heading out, every one, by a different, almost unique pathway.

So, a first year readership goal is 4,120×3×4=49,440, say 50K readers.  That translates to 50×8×$8×52=$166,400.  There, as I promised, is your route to six figure income in under one year.  But, that is hardly the end of it.  By the end of year two your total readership at this growth rate will exceed 200,000 and your income will be around $650,000.
The Interest Gradient
The Leonardo Network creates an interest gradient that enhances the effectiveness of the induced virality.  That is because when you go to Leonardo to get your four Leonardo subscribers, the four that subscribe will be the four who are the most interested in your articles.  Their 16 subscribers will generally be interested in your articles, but not as interested as your direct Leonardo subscribers.  With each degree of separation the interest level decreases until your probability of being forwarded decreases toward zero.  We refer to this as the interest gradient and it is very critical to an understanding of Leonardo as a hybrid superintelligence.  It also keeps the system from getting swamped with articles.

Also, Leonardo is dynamic and self curating.  What I mean by that is that the connections are constantly changing as the system as a whole searches for the most efficient lines of communication.  An example would be if LMA sends out an article to LMB, LMC, LMD and LME.  LMB likes the article so he chooses it for his next week's email.  His LM subscriber LMF decides that LMA is actually a closer match for her, so she unsubscribes from LMB and subscribes to LMA.  Now LMB needs to find a new LM subscriber.  On the other hand, on the basis of the article, LMC decides that LMA is not the best choice, unsubscribes and goes back to Leonardo to find a different upstream connection.  LMA lost one and gained one, so he's even.

These changes in subscriptions will, over time, create a more efficient interest gradient and fewer articles of little or no interest landing in people's inboxes. 


This will disrupt the Mainstream Media
Right now nearly all 150+ D15IQ people are inappropriately excluded.  Many of them are actually thinking of superior solutions to problems, seeing errors in conventional wisdoms, etc.  However, they have no access to large scale communication channels.  They are effectively silenced by their intelligence.  Leonardo changes that.  Leonardo gives them voice and gives them audience.  In essence, the 150 IQ Leonardo Blogger convinces his or her 130 IQ readers who influence the rank and file 110 IQ voter. 

Leonardo works as a vehicle for building mid six figure part time careers for polymaths and it begins to do so when our Network reaches 100 to 150.  But, when it reaches 1,000+ it will begin to behave like a hybrid super intelligence and thwart the partisans and demagogues.  What that means is that, if you are appropriate for Leonardo, you will gain benefits both personally and of a more altruistic nature.


Do the Numbers Work Out?
Time and again in my life I have encountered income producing ideas that look good, but, when you run the numbers, they don't work out.  Commonly, the rosy picture requires the market to be far larger than it is.  That is not the case here.  Let's look at the mature scale of 1,000 Leonardo Bloggers.  In order to hit the numbers, they must have, in total 5,000 X 1,000 = 5,000,000 readers.  A population with a Gaussian distribution centered around 130 D15IQ in Western civilization alone is about 60,000,000.  Also, it would be an incorrect assumption that none of those 5,000,000 represent people who have subscribed to several blogs. 

To hit the income expectations of $665K X 1,000 = $665 million, there would need to be $665,000,000/(8X12)X1,000 = 6.9 billion page views per month or 6.9 million page views per blog.  By comparison, Yahoo, in February of 2011 averaged well over 20 million page views per blogger.  So, while very large, by today's standards Leonardo is not unprecedented.

The Monetization Problem
When you advertise with Facebook, you are lucky if you get less than $10 CPM.  In fact, in 2017, it averaged $11.71CPM.  While Google charges on a per click basis, most of their ad rates work out to well in excess of $10 CPM.  However, if you can get $1CPM from any of the standard blogger ad sources.  This is a major contributor to the poor income for bloggers.

It is not a universal problem.  Dick Morris, who has a subscription list of 460,000 charges $10 CPM.  HuffPost DE charges 10E to 90E CPM per ad.   Native advertising, which is now very popular, typically runs $10 to $16 CPM, but some very high value formats can cost as much as $250 CPM.  Its easy to see that independent bloggers are getting the short end of the stick, primarily because they have little to no negotiating power.  Matters are different when 1,000 blogs are aggregated, however.

As part of PEN, we will start Ad Agency projects that will maximize the value of Leonardo Blogs through matching article content with product or service.  This will likely bring CPMs as high as $20.  However, for the sake of conservatism, we assume that the Ad Agency will place the ad at $10 CPM, take a 20% commission and remit $8 CPM to the blogger.

Why a Charge for PEN Membership?
I find that a lot of people think these kinds of things should be free.  Well, that is not how it works.  CWoM, with the Pareto of Virality, needs 0.8% of subscribers to The Polymath to become true ambassadors for The Polymath and Leonardo.  By repeatedly posting article links to their various social media, they 'prime the pump'.  Also, Leonardo only works with 200 or more bloggers.  somebody has to get them and its a whole lot more difficult than one might think.  In other words, essentially, we need to pay people to go out and get you, the Leonardo Blogger, other Leonardo Bloggers and audience.  They won't do that for free.

$300 to get access to 4.2 million potential subscribers is a very good deal.  And, you actually can do it for free.  You simply build up your warm market, do a Kickstarter campaign, then then use that to get set up.  $1,000 should do it.  Then when there are 4.2 million subscribers to The Polymath, do another reward crowd fund and not only will you get more money to acquire subscribers, you will directly get subscribers from the Kickstarter campaign itself.  Crowdfunding, patreon style fundraising and Experiment.com style fundraising will all be provided by The Polymath at no cost. 


Of course, these campaigns will slow down your participation, but the extra funding will allow you to acquire subscribers faster, too.

Don't Dawdle
I have had the experience of everyone standing around waiting for other people to go first.  Of course, if nobody is willing to go, then it never happens.  So, we are providing incentives.  Right now, new PEN Members will get a lifetime Membership for the first year membership fee.  Also, remember, LinkedIn is charging $575 per year for a similar membership.  Consequently, there is a financial benefit for going first.

To make it even better, the next five Members will get 5 ppd footer ads as well, potentially worth over $60,000.  So, for some of you, the time has come to jump in.  Leonardo is your proper part time activity that can monetize your finely crafted life.  You may join to the left.

Writers & Reviewers

In 2018 I will finally have my finely crafted life.  Why don't you come along with me and get yours at the same time?

For more than a few PEN members, writing some books is an important component of their finely crafted life.  That's convenient because Polymathicans read them.

Ultimately we will have about 6 million Polymathicans and they read about 20 books per year.  That means that at an average of 100,000 copies sold, Polymathicans can support 1,200 authors.  With an average e-book price of $10 and a 70% royalty, the average income will be $700,000.

However, Pareto applies.  80% will be like me, not full time writers, but having a few books in them.  Of the 240 who primarily write books to monetize their finely crafted lives, they will generally earn $500,000 to $10,000,000 per year.

You can self publish to Amazon.  They will take 30% and they will only do very incidental promotion.  The PEN system also takes 30% but it very aggressively promotes each title through about 100 Leonardo book reviewers.

Leonardo reviewers find 24 or so titles per year and publish reviews. All 100 reviewers have on their page a link to all past titles.  They receive 15% on all sales.  50,000×24×$1.50=$1.8 million.

There is one last small number of PEN members who will start one or more bookbinders for those who want a hardcopy of ebooks.  This is a substantial improvement over the old system.  Customers can choose size, color, paper quality, etc.

So, in total, around 300 PEN Members will be engaged in this productive activity as their primary monetizing strategy and perhaps another 2,000 will engage in it intermittently.

We can succeed, create our finely crafted life, if we work together.  We all need the same tools and foremost among them is this subscriber list to The Polymath.  They are our investors, patrons, research funders, readers, customers, audience, etc.  They fit our 1.2σ Simonton Gap.  As remediation for the Inappropriately Excluded, they are the first, and most important, step.

If tomorrow is to be better than today it is because you did something to make it so.  Become a Founding Member of The Polymathic Institute and become involved in PEN.

The Polymathic Institute in 500 Words

Between 60K and 120K people will join the Polymathic Institute (PI) and have their lives profoundly transformed for the better.  Members will have a mean D15IQ of 150 with a 7 point standard deviation.  They will be from the Inappropriately Excluded and while their intellectual ability is at the 99.97%'ile, neither their professional attainment nor their income is even remotely close to that.
 
We are going to fix that.  With our Plan for Development and just a little effort, you can go from zero to your wildest dreams in under two years.
 
First you will,
1) join CWoM and use some of the proceeds to join the Polymathic Institute or
2) hit your warm market for a reward crowdfunding and use some of the proceeds to join PI or
 3) pay the $300 membership fee.
 
Then hit your warm market to subscribe to The Polymath.
 
That's it.  You are now ready to build and monetize your finely crafted life.  But that is a different topic for a different day.  But, it's pretty damn cool.
 
In less than one year we will build The Polymath subscriber list to about 4 million.  These readers will come from the top 5% of the population in intellectual sophistication.  That perfectly matches the D. K. Simonton gap for PI  members, i.e., you.  They will become your investors, 'true fans', patrons, donors, grant funders, readers, customers, etc.  Whatever monetizing strategies you need to fund your finely crafted life, they will provide you with a sufficient resource and, according to Simonton, you will be persuasive.
 
Our Plan for Development is feasible and we have already successfully started it.  It works like this.
 
In The Pareto of Virality, we see that just 4% of meme recipients decide, with their behavior, if it goes viral.  So, pointed at them, we have a compensated word of mouth campaign (CWoM).  Our assumptions are that the average CWoM participant will create 140 subscribers and, of those, 3 will become CWoM participants.
 
This tells us that our new subscribers will be 3ⁿ×140 in each generation of CWoM participant.  The math works out that we exceed 4,000,000 subscribers in the 9th generation.  Based upon our current experience, a generation should average a month.  So, we are currently projected to reach the inflection point of our growth curve in under one year.

For members of the Inappropriately Excluded, this resource is sufficient for remediation.  We're smart.  We should all understand the dynamic.  And, we should understand that the only thing standing between us and the monetization of our finely crafted life is our own behavior.  So, you most certainly should get involved.

There, less than 500 words...as promised.

First, if you have not, subscribe to The Polymath.  It is our primary mode of communication.  Your referral code is 032950

The Polymath Prepaid Ads. Bitcoin Level Returns?

Imagine you could go back and buy Bitcoin at $50 or that you had bought and held Microsoft's IPO.  Certainly it's too late for these now.  Bitcoin would need to go to $3,000,000 to get the same return now.  Microsoft is so huge it can't grow very much more than 5% or 10% per year.  Yes, your hindsight is 20/20.  But how good is your foresight?  Do you or will you make the right decision when and if you are presented with the next Bitcoin?  Or will you pass on it again?
The Polymath prepaid ad program is, perhaps, such an opportunity.  They are $50 each.  With our compensated word of mouth campaign we are shooting for 4,000,000 subscribers within 2 years.  If we are successful, your ad will likely be worth 12,000 USD.  $50 to $12,000 in two years is definitely Bitcoin territory.
We have one purchaser who is holding 16 ads.  He stands to turn his $800 investment into $192,000.  He understands its a risk.  In what world are 240X gains in two years not risky?  But he believes in the Polymath and, as an entrepreneur, he's a risk taker.
We are only selling 500 of these and right now (Dec. 18, 2017) 94 of them are gone.  Very soon they likely will all be gone.  So, their market value may actually increase faster than their current value as an ad.  Through The Polymath we will provide an exchange which will provide early liquidity.

Securities laws will not allow us to warrant this, but if you think about it, it very likely will be in our best interest to offer equity in The Polymath in exchange for the prepaid ads.  As ads are redeemed they will depress our cash flow and equity will not.  So, while we cannot warrant it, you may want to consider the possibility that prepaid ads may be a route to an equity position.
Lastly, you could use the ads at some point.  You may already have a reason to talk to four million of the most intellectually sophisticated people in the world.  Or at some point you may start or join a PEN enterprise and your ads are contributed capital, increasing your equity share.
Both Microsoft and Bitcoin are huge and hundreds of thousands of investors stood to reap huge capital gains.  While the percent gains could be comparable, the scale of prepaid ads is tiny by comparison.  We have sold 94 ads to 19 people for an average of about 5 each.  If that average holds, the remaining 406 ads will go to just 81 people.  In the end perhaps only 100 people may hold them all. 
We all take risks in life.  Casinos and State Lotteries make huge money pedalling minus sum games to people who are hoping that they will be the exception who wins.  It does, in fact, happen, though that isn't the way to bet. The stock market offers opportunities that in total experience reasonable gains.  Some stocks can realize enormous gains.  The stock price in one of the first companies I worked for increased 160X in the seven years I worked there.
The Polymath prepaid ad campaign offers the potential for similar gains and that should be part of the attraction.  However, like the fellow with 16 ads, we hope that the purchasers will also be motivated by a belief in The Polymath.  There should be a magazine without bias and not dumbed down in an effort to gain readers.
Below is a PayPal button to the ads purchase page.  You will receive an e-voucher attesting to your ownership.  Once all ads are sold out we will create a secondary market and publish the current bid and ask in The Polymath.
Regards,
Michael Ferguson

Polymathic Academies

In The Inappropriately Excluded we looked at the impact of traditional educational institutions on gifted children and their contribution to a lifetime of underachievement.  From the very beginning we have recognized the need to create better educational environments for our Polymathican kids.
While the need and interest has certainly been there, there has been no practical route to implementation.  Now with The Polymath, there is.
 
The first business model will likely be providing question first, autonomous learning modules for home schooled gifted children.  Over time as both the Polymathic Academies and the market matures, bricks and mortar Academies can be opened as well.
 
There are four conditions that must be met in order for the Polymathic Academies  to be successful.  They are:
1) Sufficient funds must be raised in order to create an inventory of modules sufficiently large to satisfy initial market requirements.
2) A sufficiently large team of module authors must be recruited and mobilized.
3) Cost effective marketing channels must be created
4) A qualified scientific team must be created that can demonstrate a) traditional educational environments are suboptimal for gifted children, and b) the Polymathic Academies are effective remediation.

In the past none of the four conditions could be satisfied.  However, a robust Leonardo and The Polymath changes that.
1) 4.2 million subscribers to the Polymath should easily meet the $1,070,000 limit on CF Crowdfunding and this should be sufficient to field an initial set of modules.
2) At this time PEN should have about 60,000 members which should be sufficient to recruit enough module authors.
3) The Polymath, Leonardo and Polymathic a, when its built will create marvelous adverting media.
4) Scientific study of the efficacy of the Polymathic Academies can be funded, staffed, executed and reported with PEN, The Polymathic Institute, The Polymath, Leonardo and Polymathica.
 
PEN members who are interested in participating in the Polymathic Academies Work Group will be given the opportunity in the regular PEN communications.  For non-PEN members who want to join for the sake of joining the Polymathic Academies Work Group, join PEN by clicking below.  Because we do not yet have 150 members, your membership fee will be for a lifetime membership.
 
When you join The Polymathic Institute, you also are a member of Polymathica Enterprise Network.  This sign up is a one time payment for a lifetime membership.

More Details
Self Paced and Autonomous Learning
Most children need to be taught.  However, gifted children, actually 125 IQ and above, do not.  In Garth Zietsman's words, 'This category and all those above them don't require assistance to learn. They can find the information and master the methods themselves.'  Actually, our experience is that above an IQ of about 140, children prefer autonomous learning.  It is a basic assumption of The Polymathic Academies. 

An advantage of this approach is that learning is also self paced.  This is important since Marica Gross found that children with IQs over 160 must be radically accelerated or their life prognosis is very poor.  She actually found that gifted children learn faster than the implied rate from their ratio IQ.  A deviation IQ of 160 is a ratio IQ of 178.

So, if a child begins formal education at 5 and has a ratio IQ of 178, one would expect him or her to graduate from high school at 12/1.78+5=11.74 years.  Gross found that they actually learn faster than that and that the greater learning speed can be applied to broader knowledge.  This is our model, though, whatever the learning speed, the distinguishing factor is a facility in and proclivity toward self-paced autonomous learning.


Question First Learning
After the first few years of basic skills learning, similar to Kumon but updated for computer, drill or game options, children will begin a course of education based upon modules that ask a question and expect the child to answer the question through self-study.  A question might be, 'Why did the large dinosaurs go extinct 65 million years ago?'  The child will google, study, go to the library, watch videos.  The module will periodically prompt the child with subquestions, such as 'How often would we expect a asteroid or comet of the size that hit the Earth 65 million years ago to hit the Earth?'

As they work through the module, the students will come to understand the late Cretaceous fauna and flora, paleoclimatology, the asteroid theory, the behavior of ecosystems, etc. and then prepare a final report.  This will be reviewed by an educational specialist.  The purpose is to encourage the child to consider questions without specific reference to a subject.  This is what makes it The Polymath Academies.

Dovetailing with the Current Educational System
Nearly all jurisdictions require that home schooled children have local school district oversight which is usually minor if the jurisdiction requires annual testing.  If the child is appropriate for The Polymath Academies, they will usually advance well ahead of the state requirements.  Still, a general test should be given to the child well in advance of the state requirement to check for significant gaps in the child's knowledge.

Conclusion
This is a preliminary outline for the Polymathic Academies.  As the PEN workgroup forms, it will flesh out a much more detailed description of the educational and business plans.  Some aspects may change significantly.  However, for those who would like to contribute to gifted education, especially for polymathic children, the goal will stay the same.

The Polymath Prepaid Ad Program

Target:   $50,000
Raised:    $ 4,500

In our first crowdfunding, by far, the most money was raised with the prepaid footer ad and the Lifetime PEN memberships.  So, in this round, it is what we're offering
in total we will sell up to 500 prepaid ads. We've sold 90 so far.

It works like this.  Crowd funders will fund in 50 USD increments, each of which will receive a 'forever footer ad'These ads can be held for any length of time and then used or sold at the then current ad rate.  Presumably as circulation increases the value of the ad will increase proportionately.

We are planning to launch The Polymath on May 12, 2018 to coincide with the First Annual Polymathica Gathering in Marbella, Spain.  We our forecasting that, through the Compensated Word of Mouth program, we will launch with about 200,000 subscribers.  That translates into an ad value of 600 USD.

Our circulation goal at one year is 1,000,000 which translates to a footer ad value of 3,000 USD.  Our two year goal is 4,000,000 which translates to an ad value of 12,000 USD.  $50 to $12,000 in two years.  That makes this more like a high return investment than a reward.  That is why we aren't using a crowdfunding platform.

When you purchase one or more prepaid ads, you will receive an email certificate.  For those who have already purchased, one will be arriving in your inbox this week.  Also I will publish a list of owners by customer number with the quantity owned.  Once the Polymath is launched and the cost of a footer ad exceeds $50, I will publish the current rate and provide a mechanism for bringing buyers and sellers together.

Of course any purchase with the potential to appreciate 240 times in two years should be considered speculative.  But that's OK; the cost of entry is low. While we are confident in our plan for development there is no assurance that either the circulation or CPM targets will be reached.

The Polymath is an extraordinary vision that will promote and enable polymathic research, education, careers and lifestyles.  It will also facilitate remediation for the inappropriately excluded.  

By providing initial funding for these visions, in addition to the potential for substantial gains,vyou will be doing something of profound value to society and yourself.

We understand that many of those people who have already crowdfunded The Polymath have done so out of a belief in the vision.  Still, it is only proper that they be amply rewarded upon success.

Our goal is to sell170 ads per month for three months.  That means you can come back and buy more in subsequent months.  However, keep in mind that we could sell out early.
