Stewarding a tools infrastructure - Making a digital commons
This is a post- conference thread following Open2020, for ongoing reflection. The session reviewed a number of established forms of governance that might be considered for an infrastructure of distributed digital resources on the web. A panel presented ideas, success stories and thoughts on challenges. The Online Meeting Coop (meet.coop) - newly operating as hosts of the conference - responded to this array of issues.
Panel members were:
Alfredo Lopez - May First Movement Technology
Francesca Pick - Greaterthan, Enspiral
Petter Joelson - collective.tools, digiDemLab
Albert Tucker - The Social Business Network, Etico (Fairtrade organisations)
Wouter Tebbens (femProComuns) responded from meet.coop.
