    Occupy everywhere Occupy everywhere Presentation Transcript

    • OccupyEverywhere Scalability Platform (OESP)
      Infrastructure for Emergent Self Organization in Dynamic and Geographically Localized Environments
    • Objectives
      Focus the attention of, and coordinate the resources from, those that want to support the occupiers
      Provide an infrastructure that will enable the self organization of a dynamically changing group with ambiguous collective objectives that are occupying a particular geographic location.
      Support the maintenance and growth of localized occupations
    • Everyone else
      Make visible
      OCCUPATION: requires infrastructure for emergent self organization
      Make visible
      Make visible
      Make visible
    • Primary Functional Considerations
      Dynamic, rapidly changing, environment
      Little if any structure at the outset
      Fluid, emergent, leadership
      Geographically localized
    • Primary Application Requirement
      Mobile: we can expect people in the streets to be moving around etc...
      Real Time: needs to be sensitive to the rapidly changing environment
      Location Sensitive: the context is one where people are trying to coordinate logistics in particular localized regions
      A highly robust GPS/mapping system will need to be at the core of the application framework
    • Primary System Requirements
      Platform needs to enable the emergence of structure and a management systems within a context where there is no clearly defined leadership.
    • Problem To Solve
      OESP needs to be able to take a number of discrete inputs from individuals that are not connected, in real time, process this information, and then provide feedback that is relevant to the organization and management of a larger group that has no formal organizational structure.
    • OESP Process Considerations
    • Engaging With OESP: Skills Registry
      An obvious initial first step is to gather information from people as they arrive at the occupation... A few possibilities are...
      ROLES/OFFER: what you can do to support the occupation...
      NEEDS: what you need in order to support the occupation
    • From Registration to Functional Teams
      We can see how the Registration Process could suggest functional teams...
      Those that self identify as doctors could be connected to other doctors
      Those that want to work on Tuesdays could be connected with others that want to work on Tuesdays
    • OESP Features and Functionality
    • Resource Allocation
      Identify aggregate resource requirements...
      Food, bedding, clothing, medical...
      Identify sources of supply
      Note that the Registration process need not be limited to those on the ground. People can all over the world can pledge resources
      The system would take a number of inputs from individuals and use this as the basis for understanding the larger picture...
    • Skills Matching
      OESP needs to be able to quickly identify those with skills (both onsite and off) that can support the occupiers
    • Functional Team Development
      As people register their skills, OESP can generate Functional Teams
      Food, security, medical, sleeping...
      The teams could emerge based on numbers of people that register skills
    • Scheduling
      OESP could provide dynamic calendaring that will enable people to input their availability. This could then be used to generate schedules that are accessible to all.
    • Imagine... Localized communication
      Location Sensitive Targeted Notifications
      Someone needing a doctor, and notification (SMS and/or automated call) going out to all doctors that are geographically most proximal
      Location Sensitive General Notifications
      There is a meeting scheduled for 3pm by the fountain! All people within a 3 block radius are notified by SMS and automated voice...
    • Imagine... UI Considerations
      You need to find a security person... You look at the map and all security personnel are identified by the colour red
      Hence you could toggle through a map of people that are identified by functional roles
      Assumes very robust GPS capabilities that can down peoples locations in real time (not sure if this is actually possible).
    • Visibility of the Movement
    • Localized Visibility.. ie.Visibility into OccupyWallStreet!
      Livestream aggregation (from particular location ie. Occupy Wall Sreet)
      Video aggregation (repository of all personal footage)
      Photo aggregation (repository of all personal photos)
      Blog aggregation
      This would be ONE SCREEN (Visibility into OccupyWallStreet!) with buttons linking to livestreams, videos, photos, blogs etc... For example...
    • OccupyWallStreetUI... Homepage
    • Visibility Into Larger MovementOccupyEverywhere
      Single view that links you to individual Occupations
      OccupyWall Street
    • Remote Support
    • Areas of Remote Support Include
      Crowdsourcing infrastructure
      Donation systems
      Curation of news, videos, blogs etc
      Resource identification, matching and allocation
      There are any number of ways in which people can support the occupation from a distance.
