Content Glass platform is the major project of Rhizome Networks. Content Glass provides a technology and API for creating State Oriented Sharing apps.
Content Glass can be used on websites, mobile apps or wireless devices to associate information with predefined states. Information is stored by Content Glass in the form of CG-Widgets. CG-Widgets are mini-apps. They combine data-structure and programable logic. Apps can use Content Glass API to create, access and manipulate widgets by defining layers that represent a condition in the context of an app.
We call this methodology: State Oriented Sharing

Content Glass is a web based platform for creating web applications (and mobile apps in the future) – CG Apps. CG apps specialized in presenting or operating strata of state-oriented information - in other words, layers of information that appears or operated given some condition or state.
To fulfil Content Glass potential, company focus these days on establish a cloud of CG Apps - 'Content Glass Cloud', a collection of CG apps that users can subscribe to. Keeping a single user account over multiple apps and using state-oriented-sharing methodology allow apps to collaborate with each other and spread strata of contextual information on top of the web.
Content Glass Cloud is a long term project and we aim to develop it by establishing technological hub that cooperate with partner startups. The concept of the Hub/Partner model is that 'Rhizome Networks' function has hub for creating multiple prototypes of Content Glass apps. Company is planing to partner with startups that receive a working prototype of CG apps and bring them to commercial fruition. Using this model we hope to be able to implement strata of contextual information on top of the web, making the web not only multi site but multi-dimensional so that each web-site (or mobile app) can have multiple facets of contextual information on top of it. Website is 'place' that have its some original facet. However, Website + Content Glass makes a website into a data-source that can have multiple facets presented on top of the original or instead of the original.
Think of desktop (the physical one) on which you put plate of glass. You can still see the original desktop but now you have a layer on which you can draw or put things, without changing the original site (the desktop). This is what Content Glass do for the web

CEO & Founder
Gilad has 19 years of experience in the software industry with perspective of support work, QA work, Senior software development and team leader and in the last 8 year as founder and owner of startup company.
Rhizome Networks is active since 2009 in the field of sharing and collaborating software running on the cloud. At first it focused on creating virtual-workplace on which teams can collaborate and create software. Project was abandoned do to lack of funding.
This luck of funding drive the company to try and find resources in the field of affiliate marketing especially with Amazon products API and auto-blog. Affiliate marketing could provide some small income but the timing was bad due to dramatic changes in search engine algorithm that affect any traffic-driven website model.
The field of affiliate websites was avoided and company started ot provide Consulting Services.
During this period the concept of Content Glass was established greatly inspired by the previous Virtual Workplace project. Content Glass was grow together with patent application created for it first and non-provisional and then as PCT
Unfortunately there was no interest or response from VCs and we decided not to make progress with the expensive procedure of PCT.
Today company is working in a bootstrapping mode, meaning that consulting services are used to fund the innovation activity.
Company have two projects: Content Glass and Priceli
Content Glass, reflects the long-term vision of the company and its current focus is presenting Content Glass Cloud in 2017
Priceli, was created in order to monetize Content Glass, a mission that was not accomplished yet. It is now revised and we hope to present few apps of it on 2017.
After 7 years since I first registered Rhizome Networks, 7 years of straggle to combine between my art with abd the commercial reality, 7 years of straggle to monetize on my art, I can say that Rhizome Networks still keep going probably because it is derived by the force of Rhizome.
