Cloud of Angels

I do mean not a simple cloud, but a cloud internet service. It would be “guardian angels’” service which would be created by somebody from you). You have probably caught the concept. 🙂 An unknown person can mail you advices and words of encouragement when it seems to him opportunely. You will never know who is he, and it will be impossible to reply him. But you can become a “guardian angel” for someone else. This impartial support can last all the lifetime, but can be also broken off for ever according to the service’s agreement.

What principles can be implemented in the work of such service?

First principle. You create a private message flow in the “Cloud of Angels”, bringing together the open flows of your accounts in Livejournal, Twitter and other social networks. Accounts should be updated regularly, and their age should exceed one year. Service also would require you to evidence that these are your accounts (you would have to place the code suggested in your posts).

The second principle. Service would analyze your closed flow and automatically, without your participation, choose a “ward” (only one) for which you would become a “guardian angel”. In the same way you would become a “ward” for the unknown third person from this service. One and the same participant can not be at one and the same time an “angel” and a”ward” for another.

The third principle. “Angel” would follow the stream of his “ward” open to him as feasible. All the messages of the flow would be presented in a single impersonal format – that is, Angel would not know what social networks they were originally published in. He wouldn’t see the social accounts real addresses of his “ward.”

Of course, if desired, he could find them via Google (using as a search query phrase from the stream). However, according to the rules of “Clouds of angels”, the connection through service between the “angel” and “Ward” would end forever if they become accidentally or deliberately ordinary friend in “real on-line” – e.g. “Twitter”, “LiveJournal”, etc . Incidentally, the service would automatically delete postal and internet addresses, contacts in the ICQ, Skype, etc from the “angel’s” messages. This, in theory, should hinder users’ self-exposure and give them time to think: whether one wants to destroy the aura of this unselfish game and become ordinary friends?

Fourth principle. “A ward” can not send replies to his “angel,” using the service. He just might, hoping feedbacks, appeale to him in his social accounts openly or hinting, to discuss with “friends” his advices and so on. Another variant to react is to refuse through the service from this “angel”. The first and second refusals are warnings, which become known to “angel”. After the third warning the connection between “angel” and “ward” would be broken without restoration. In this case, both would lose access to the “Cloud” for a month.

Fifth principle. “Angel” may also refuse to “ward”, if disappointed in him or in the own ability to help him. Their relations would be broken – and both participants would be also separated from service for a month.

Sixth principle. If within one year a user would be separated from the service three times, he would lose access to it for ever. The only way to circumvent this principle is to create new accounts in the social networks, to fill them honestly for a year and only then you could start a new life in the cloud from zero.

Such a mystical story… 🙂
