This narrative came up while preparing the TransforMap landing page and is displayed here for reference.
The whole is to be concluded by a focus pieces on federated knowledge engineering.
The parts are:
I Web Applications + Data Syndication
II Federated Tempospatial Data + Decoupled GIS
III Communication Infrastructure for Organized Networks
- allmende.io is my personal contribution to the Commons. To provide free and open communication infrastructure for self-organized initiatives.
- Allmende were the pastures in villages where work and crop would have been shared equally. The word is the German translation of Commons.
- These infrastructures have been provided to bootstrap 14mmm.org and transformap.co.
Appearantly building this TransforMap, whatever it may become, can be challenging. But I know for sure it can only succeed if we agree on a computational ethics that is at least semi-aware of its implications. More on this later.
Protocol designers. Yes, I'm looking at you, angry white men. Please be aware of the sociocultural implications of your implementations.— Jon Richter (@almereyda) 20. Oktober 2014
