OuiShare OS: a project to open source OuiShare
I’d like to announce the kick-off of a new project that Antonin and I came up with and that I would like to start working on with Isabel Benitez and Hélène Vuaroqueaux ** over the next months which we are currently raising a bucket for on Cobudget: **open sourcing OuiShare.
With two of our core values being transparency and openness, we think it’s time to increase efforts on showing and explaining how OuiShare works and making knowledge within the network more accessible. Creating a culture of documentation and knowledge sharing is an integral part of being a learning organization to me, for which we hope to create a strong foundation with this project.
I am personally convinced that telling more stories about what we do is an important step to fulfilling our mission to build and nurture collaborative culture beyond our own network. It is also a critical element for increasing our impact - I see open sourcing as our way of scaling as a networked community.
Having done a first test with the development of the OuiShare Fest Toolkit this year, it seems natural to bulid on this work now and take it a step further.
For more details on what we would like to work from now till January, see:
An integral part of what we propose is designing how our open source documentation can grow over time through contributions from the community.
Comments and feedback is welcome!
