This is a prototype platform for The Collaboratory, a community of innovators working on systemic change initiatives.
|Purpose||To get shift done, by building knowledge commons, marketplaces to showcase our businesses and projects, and sharing robust profiles to help us better find people of similar values and alignments.|
|Principles||Provide safe and focused community spaces. Host conversations that matter. Practice respectful miscommunication. Build trust as the gravity that holds people networks together.|
|Process||Co-creative and emergent. (Another way of saying We have no idea but We are determined to try out and share what works for us).|
|Permission||As a construction site the collaboratory itself is not open to public access at this time, but we are planning for a large part of what we build to be open source (people, processes and tools, rather than code), and public under Creative Commons agreements, like the co-created blog at http://thenextedge.org.|
