Patent-pending, prize-winning technology like no other

Readocracy’s patent-pending attention verification technology can tell if somebody was actually paying attention, and how intensely. Globally leading content analytics PhD researchers have confirmed it is unmatched.

What makes it even more unique is who the data is for: the end user. Content analytics have traditionally only ever been for media publishers and advertisers. Readocracy puts it in the hands of the viewer for the first time, and with more accuracy and nuance, too.

The technology has already verified over 100 million page views, and we’re proud of the fact that it’s privacy-first, including being recognized by Mozilla’s Fix The Internet OpenLab.

Group 24 Readocracy

About Us

Readocracy is brought to you by Rewordly Inc., the team behind Readefined.com and Rewordly.com, the other two platforms in our prize-winning, mission-driven suite. We are based in Toronto and Bucharest, with an increasing presence in NYC. We are a quirky bunch - our team includes a vintage keyboard collector, table top gaming connoisseur, fashion photographer, and even a guerilla “serendipity artist”, amongst other things. By day, we are coders, designers, researchers, and strategists. Above all, we are deeply passionate, open-minded, values-driven people.

We are founded by two brothers, Mario and Matei Vasilescu. Matei taught himself to code at age 15, and had built a pre-Facebook social network with over 200K users, driving 40M hits/month, by the time he was 20. His proprietary platform architecture, MWE, powers micro-networks for global clients supporting over 500K users. Mario is a robotics engineer turned product designer. He is a multi-prize winner on digital innovation, and led digital strategy projects for national organizations in both Canada and France. Richard Tuck, our embedded executive advisor, rounds out the leadership team: he is the former CEO of Riipen, an education startup he grew from 3 to over 30 people with contracts across North America. He is an advisor to several startups, and a professor and program designer at Red River College, focused on social entrepreneurship.

The remainder of our advisors bring executive experience from IBM global, Columbia University, Torstar, Village Media, LoyaltyOne, and Code for America.

If you have any questions, we would be happy to hear from you.

Group 24 Readocracy

We are on a mission to bring integrity back to the internet, by helping quality beat quantity.

The internet was supposed to be an incredible force for good. An oracle of knowledge, bringing together the best our world has to offer. Instead, it is increasingly tearing at the fabric of our society, sowing division, inciting violence, fueling depression and addiction, and upending democracies, while it bankrupts quality journalism along the way.

Our belief is that only a systemic, foundational rethinking of the web - one that finds a way to still play off existing habits - can bring about the dramatic shift that is required.

Our approach to this is to rethink the fundamental economics of the web: how value is measured, and how it is collected online, in a way that incentivizes quality creation, quality attention, and quality participation.

We are rethinking the attention economy.

1) Rethinking the value system

Today, the web is still largely driven by superficial measures rooted in basic attention and mindless behaviour: page clicks, ad impressions, and superficial “engagement” actions. The result is an inevitable race to the bottom where everything is optimized for quantity, while quality fits in where it can. This is a system that inherently rewards provocation, hysteria, and short cuts, while stifling thoughtfulness.

Our technology challenges this value system. Through Readefined.com, and now Readocracy, it makes it possible to optimize for, and be tangibly rewarded for, quality attention over quantity attention; for quality participation, over quantity participation. For both content publishers, and audiences. Rewordly.com fits in by helping quality perspectives, and more nuanced arguments, shine through the noise.

2) Rethinking who benefits, and how

Today, the web is also a largely exploitative arrangement: the users themselves benefit from access to information, however their time and attention are endlessly abused. Platforms, publishers, and advertisers, have depended on a singular business model of ad-driven view-and-click attention extraction. With Readocracy, we are trying to help users more tangibly and visibly benefit from their time spent online, while also giving publishers and platforms a new, healthier, less exploitative, win-win way of profiting from the interest of their audiences.

What is listed above is not an easy task. It is an uphill climb, requiring a tremendous amount of education and re-education, and support from those who are only just beginning to see that the current system is clearly starting to collapse.

We have already made great progress, however, and are optimistic for what we can achieve with our ever-growing list of supporters and partners. If you would like to join them, and want to help us with our mission, we would love to hear from you.
