  • NASA CoLab Overview June 2008
  • What is NASA CoLab
    • NASA CoLab uses technology and processes to enable
    public participation , collaboration & innovation at NASA
  • What is “Public Participation” at NASA?
    • It’s “Participatory Exploration”.
    • NASA CoLab brings together NASA innovators to create possibilities for the public to contribute and easier for NASA employees to innovate.
    • Be there, virtually.
      • Control equipment remotely.
      • Collect and contribute data.
      • Help the mission.
      • Code. Analyze. Contribute.
      • DISCOVER .
  • Participatory Exploration --Participatory Exploration Summit, June 2007 “‘ Participatory Exploration’ provides a mechanism for the public to collaborate with NASA.  Two-way communication enables the public to engage with NASA in a productive way, resulting in creative ideas and potential innovation.”
    • t r a n s p a r e n c y
      • engage empower
      • creative ideas
      • productive ownership
      • innovation
      • contribution
      • openness
    Value to NASA
    • New, fresh methodologies and content
    • Cost savings - not limited to traditional resources
    • Cultural shift - greater transparency enables trust and innovation internally
  • NASA CoLab Elements On-line : Web-based tools to foster open innovation and collaboration Physical : Coworking environments at NASA Centers and at cultural capitals close to NASA Centers Virtual : Utilize Second Life and other platforms for virtual collaboration Events : Host/present innovative gatherings to bring NASA staff together with external Centers of innovation Partnerships : Foster new partnerships with individuals and non- traditional communities Community : An engaged public workforce for NASA Agency-wide : Establish internal NASA CoLab groups at NASA Centers Facilitation : Assist NASA programs in implementing collaborative processes Community : Facilitate an internal culture and community of open innovation and collaboration ENVIRONMENTS PUBLIC PARTNERSHIPS INTERNAL FACILITATION
  • Public Perception of NASA CoLab
    • NASA CoLab has generated a lot of press, because it provides tangible , exciting opportunities for public participation
  • NASA CoLab Accomplishments to Date
    • Environments
    • Online: NASACoLab.org, Twitter, Facebook.
    • Physical: Citizenspace, Yahoo! Brickhouse, ARC Building 17.
    • Virtual: Avg. 700 visitors / week, Avg. > 1 hour per visitor per week, 1st public Federal virtual space.
    • Public Partnerships
    • Events hosted : hosted Participatory Exploration Summit, Next Generation Exploration Conference-2.
    • Partnerships: Etsy.com, Yahoo! Brickhouse.
    • Community: Second Life, Hack Days.
    • Internal Facilitation
    • Agency-wide: CoLab Camp, Bi-weekly CoLab calls, Monthly NASA Virtual Worlds Working Group Telecons.
    • Facilitation: SMD WebFed talks, Technology Demos (Second Life, Open-Source Tools/ Drupal, Twitter)
    • Introducing NASA Management to Public Thought Leaders : Web 2.0 C-Level Executives at Twitter, Linden Lab, Yahoo!; Chamber of Commerce, Technology Press
  • Connections and Collaborations from First Year
    • Contacted by innovators within other government agencies

      • City of San Francisco, Clean Technology companies, Yahoo! Brickhouse, Flickr, Etsy
    • Began collaborating across all centers
      • Sharing Terms of Service, Open Source activities, ways of employing new technologies
  • Lessons from First Year
    • Our workforce is extremely creative, resourceful, and dedicated
    • There is a lot of duplication of efforts and infrequent collaboration internally
    • Little innovative projects and ideas find their way into main-stream projects and programs
    … we need to collaborate and reward innovation within NASA (to help us better collaborate external to NASA)
  • NASA CoLab Elements Focus on Internal Facilitation for the Next Year On-line : Web-based tools to foster open innovation and collaboration Physical : Coworking environments at NASA Centers and at cultural capitals close to NASA Centers Virtual : Utilize Second Life and other platforms for virtual collaboration Events : Host/present innovative gatherings to bring NASA staff together with external Centers of innovation Partnerships : Foster new partnerships with individuals and non- traditional communities Community : An engaged public workforce for NASA Agency-wide : Establish internal NASA CoLab groups at NASA Centers Facilitation : Assist NASA programs in implementing collaborative processes Community : Facilitate an internal culture and community of open innovation and collaboration ENVIRONMENTS PUBLIC PARTNERSHIPS INTERNAL FACILITATION
