Transcript

  • 1. Technologies for Free Culture World Domination Workshop Mike Linksvayer 2007-06-17
  • 2. Workshop on opportunities, challenges and dependencies across the “open movements” (many of which are fundamentally technological)
  • 3.
    • 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
  • 4. Free/Libre/Open Source Software Free Culture P2P Open formats Open data Semantic Web Open Access Open protocols Open web Open education
  • 5. Obvious 1 Challenge to FLOSS: Web applications Partial solutions from nearly every category, most completely and tenuously from P2P
  • 6. Obvious 2 Legal challenges to P2P Only FLOSS has survived
  • 7. (How much has legal cloud impacted P2P beyond filesharing? Would Web ~2 be less centralized without chilling of P2P?)
  • 8. 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)
  • 9. Grounding in project examples How will your project be relevant and helpful in 10 years?
  • 10.
    • 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?
  • 11. 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;
  • 12. 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;
  • 13. 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
  • 14. Workshop: Open formats
      • Strengths
      • interoperability
      • Challenges
      • closed formats have critical mass; marketing; patents
      • Dependencies
      • free software
  • 15. Workshop: Open data
      • Strengths
      • Challenges
      • Dependencies
  • 16. Workshop: Semantic Web
      • Strengths
      • Challenges
      • Dependencies
  • 17. Workshop: Commonalities
      • decentralization
      • willingness to collaboration/user innovation
  • 18. Workshop: Core Tech Challenges
      • web applications
      • legality
      • common architectural format/compatibility
  • 19. Crazy? Tilting at windmills? Is “world domination” remotely possible for any of the “opens”? Is irrelevance a real threat for any?
  • 20. 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
  • 21. Workshop: Going forward informed
      • decentralization
  • 22. Experience Free Culture
