Assunto: [opennetcoalition] Open Everything Mindmap now publicly accessible

Below is a very comprehensive map of all the open developments we have been
monitoring the last three years ... I'm amazed myself at how mature the
alternative infrastructure already is ..

Thanks for having a look and spreading the word about it,


The public version of the map is here:

People who want to add and improve can ask access at

Details about its structure are here at
I'm quoting it for your convenvience below.

Finally, there is an embed code, here:

Thanks for your interest Jon, and I hope you can in turn spread the word,
and mention it in Boing Boing and Worldchanging if possible,

Open Everything Mindmap and visualization <

This mindmap <http://www.mindmeister.com/28717702/everything-open-and-free>
could certainly be more beautifully designed and presented, but I can’t
refrain from already sharing, as it presents such a condensation of the 3
years of research we’ve undertaken at the P2P Foundation.

A special thanks to Ben Dagan of Creative Commons Austria <
who prodded me to undertake this visualization effort, and added some extra
visual elements already. Ben and the CCAlps Salon invited me to speak on
Open Everything in Vienna on 11 September <
http://creativecommons.at/salon/everything> at 19:30 in the Museumsquarter.
It’s part of the annual Paraflows <http://www.paraflows.at/> festival.

Other participants will most likely improve and change it, as will some
other people associated with the P2P Foundation.

Some explanation of this draft visualization:

First the red links, that’s the most unsuccessfull part of this draft: they
are meant to represent the process of ‘Circulation of the Common’, the means
by which the Commons socially reproduces itself, i.e. by *open and free
input*, which is *participatorily processed* to result in a *universally
available commons*, which in turn represents open and free input for further

The main body of the visualization contains 6 aspects of processes
representing the cycle of reproduction and growth of openness in our

*I. Aspects of Openness,*

i.e. the requirement of inclusionality or open access; the demand for
participation, i.e. permissionless contributions; the demand for holoptism
or full transparency of that process, and finally, for full shareability and
‘changeability’ of the common material. All these represent new social
expectations, and are key ingredients of commons-based peer production as

*II. Enablers of Openness*

These aspects or fundamental characteristics of openness are then embedded
in enablers or ‘guarantors’. First of all are the Open Definitions, the
social charters that determine the boundary conditions of the open
communities and which define the minimal conditions for openness to be
recognized; these are further embedded in open code, open licenses, and open
standards; as well as the basic conditions which are open access and open

*III. Infrastructures of Openness*

To make it all real, we need infrastructures in which these enabling
elements are embedded, i.e. we need open platforms, both virtual and
physical, which alllow us to produce in a open way: open collaborative
technical platforms, open places where we can gather, open media and
communication infrastructures we can use, open and free software, knowledge
and scientific data; and the ability to live in open and free villages and
urban spaces, which connect local production with global open design

*IV. Open Practices*

All the preceeding enablers, will allow us then to engage in open practices,
especially open design and open manufacturing, but also free currencies and
new forms of sharing (ownership).

*V. Open Domains of Practice*

These practices are obviously embedded in topical domains, such as education
and science, where these practices are contextualized and made real, to
finally result in all kinds of …

*VI. Open Products!!*

The actual ’social artefacts’ actually created by the processes from I to V,
i.e. the Apache server, the Linux operating system, etc..

All of the above gives us a circular process, leading to new iterations of
open characteristics.

Note that we then add a layer of examples of each practice (in bold), as
well as the sources where you can find examples in our ecology of
information services at the P2P Foundation.

*VII. Open Movements*

New social movements, specifically dedicated to increasing ‘openness’ are
also specifically tackling the social awareness concerningt this shift,
strengthening and increasing the numbers of people who see this as a new
mode of life and ethical ideal, and as their default social practice. Like
the P2P Foundation itself, they consciously work on creating open
distributed infrastructures in all areas of life, interconnecting
initiatives in global networks of experience sharing.

*VIII. Open Consciousness*

All the efforts from II to VII change our subjectivies and how we relate to
each other, re-inforcing new iterations of the Open Cycle.
