You turn on channels to see what's in there, nobody can ever push content to you.

Influencers curate Qubes that are collecions of content on specific subjects.
Qube curators have to be verified (no fakes).
Qubes can have shops where curators can place products that are relevant to the Qube. (e.g. where to get something they're reviewing or what you need to do th DIY project they're describing etc.)

Comprehensive search of everything in the network of Qubes makes Quipler an effective "portal" to only that which you choose to view on the internet. Your own personal view of the Internet, completely under your control.
