    Technologies for Free Culture World Domination Workshop 2007-06-17 Technologies for Free Culture World Domination Workshop 2007-06-17 Presentation Transcript

    • Technologies for Free Culture World Domination Workshop Mike Linksvayer 2007-06-17
    • Workshop on opportunities, challenges and dependencies across the “open movements” (many of which are fundamentally technological)
      • 10000m view
      • Grounding in project examples
      • Mapping strengths, weaknesses, dependencies, gaps across “open”
      • Identify commonalities
      • Distill core technical challenges and opportunities
      • How should this inform actions going forward?
      • In workshop notes are red
    • Free/Libre/Open Source Software Free Culture P2P Open formats Open data Semantic Web Open Access Open protocols Open web Open education
    • Obvious 1 Challenge to FLOSS: Web applications Partial solutions from nearly every category, most completely and tenuously from P2P
    • Obvious 2 Legal challenges to P2P Only FLOSS has survived
    • (How much has legal cloud impacted P2P beyond filesharing? Would Web ~2 be less centralized without chilling of P2P?)
    • Obvious 3 DRM threat to Free Culture FLOSS not amenable to DRM (Cory's fun comment about demands that computers be made worse at copying)
    • Grounding in project examples How will your project be relevant and helpful in 10 years?
      • 10000m view
      • Grounding in project examples
      • Mapping strengths, weaknesses, dependencies, gaps across “open”
      • Identify commonalities
      • Distill core technical challenges and opportunities
      • How should this inform actions going forward?
    • Workshop: FLOSS
        • Strengths
        • it works; can fix if it doesn't work
        • Challenges
        • web applications; not fixable by most people; usability no HIG; closed drivers; DRM; too much NIH including wrt standards
        • Dependencies
        • open formats; open networks; open hardware;
    • Workshop: Free Culture
        • Strengths
        • anyone can participate; permits production of free knowledge; lots of stuff out there; wikipedia; noninfringing use
        • Challenges
        • not enough experiences; not enough crossover between sharing and commercial economies; not using open formats; illiteracy/access to tools; versioning
        • Dependencies
        • open formats; free software (continuity, no-DRM, access to tools); open formats; non-centralized sharing platform; non-broken Internet;
    • Workshop: P2P
        • Strengths
        • scalability; failure safe
        • Challenges
        • research project; bandwidth; latency; NAT; legality; web applications; business models for P2P development
        • Dependencies
        • open networks; free culture; free software
    • Workshop: Open formats
        • Strengths
        • interoperability
        • Challenges
        • closed formats have critical mass; marketing; patents
        • Dependencies
        • free software
    • Workshop: Open data
        • Strengths
        • Challenges
        • Dependencies
    • Workshop: Semantic Web
        • Strengths
        • Challenges
        • Dependencies
    • Workshop: Commonalities
        • decentralization
        • willingness to collaboration/user innovation
    • Workshop: Core Tech Challenges
        • web applications
        • legality
        • common architectural format/compatibility
    • Crazy? Tilting at windmills? Is “world domination” remotely possible for any of the “opens”? Is irrelevance a real threat for any?
    • How can we know? More theory on societal salience (e.g. Benkler) More (any?) good and broad criticism Much more empirical research Prediction markets/technologies
    • Workshop: Going forward informed
        • decentralization
    • Experience Free Culture
