As an example, Earth's radius is 6,378,000 metres.

So an average 1.7m tall human at sea level would see the horizon at 4.7 km away. To a 1m tall child, the horizon would be only 3.6 km away.

From the top floor of the Burj Khalifa, the horizon would be 86 km away.

From the summit of Everest, the horizon would be 336 km away.

From the window of a passenger aeroplane, the horizon would be 384 km away.

Instead of uploading all our information to silos like Facebook or Twitter, we should be able to host our own basic (meta)data like avatar, status updates or social connections in a standardized format.

You would then be able to grant services like Facebook or Twitter access to that data via a token, and you could control which service gets access to what kind of data.
