|De São João Marques, Henrique Jorge|
A previously unheard of name in Academic Computer Sciences, who boldly promises "Artificial Intelligence" for the people.
With so many fluffy interviews, and no actual technology to examine, (and oh, believe-you-me, we're gonna dissect interviews)
let's take a look at this man, and his (known) accomplishments.:
Starting with his LinkdIn profile.
|*nowhere* is there Computer Sciences, or Artificial Inteligence|
|Impossible? No. Improbable? Yup.|
[a]uto.net (Novas Tecnologias de Informação, Lda.)
The Auto.net facebook page, another Henriqe Jorge regurgitation feed. Created , it's sole purpose seems to be crossposting for Eter9, even though "AutoNet" has supposedly been around since 1995.
The Home lair of "The Resilient Automan. "

Eter9"Eter9 Living Cyberspace" (Sound familiar?) Was filed for in 2013:
I don't know what you are seeing, but I'm seeing a trend of stagnancy, and empty promises.
What I *can* tell you, factually, is that over my 11 months of Eter9 use, not *once* did I see any kind of "Updates" from the Eter9 "Team", nor any revealatory insight to any technology "in development".
From the day I signed up, until June 28th, there was never a "blog" , and never an official "Eter9 User Guide" (That is still an off-site, user created manual), nor any technological improvements, except for a "block user" function, the ability to add animated .GIF files in comments, and hyperlinked user names.
For 11 months, there was not (and probably still isn't) an "Edit" function. Stop, and think about that. An "Edit" function, one of the most common features of any platform, nowadays. It's absence from E9 is glaring.
|Don't take my word for it, go and see: Eter9.com|
Forget the "Counterparts", (which, due to their erratic, and random behavior), are considered by many observant users, (most of whom are now banned), to be nothing more than Eter9 Admins "Logging in" to a "Counterpart Profile" to post, (and only ever a YouTube link).
And if that is true, the scam revealed is intentionally deceptive.
Solely on the merits of being a "Social Network", Eter9 falls terribly short, by today's social media standards.
We're just getting started.
