Guidelines for respectful, constructive, and inclusive philosophical discussion

The specific norms are intended as means of facilitating more general norms of being respectful, constructive, and inclusive. These probably aren't categorical norms and there are situations in which it is appropriate to violate them, but nevertheless in many philosophical contexts they are useful norms to have in place. Groups are encouraged to adapt and modify these guidelines for their purposes as they see fit.

STOA | Impact and Potential of collaborative Internet and additive manufacturing technologies

STOA | Impact and Potential of collaborative Internet and additive manufacturing technologies | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
The Internet is allowing virtual communities to easily co-create digital assets and intellectual content at a very low “cooperation cost”. The ideology behind the open-source software development methodology has actually spread to new domains such as open-data, open-design and open-innovation. A new set of Internet tools and services is now available to leverage the “wealth and the wisdom of the crowd”. Complex projects can be crowd-sourced and crowd-funded by small and medium sized companies to reduce their cost of doing business. The “crowd” itself uses and modifies “open-data” to “co-create” new open-designs for the purpose of participating to “crowd-sourced” projects.

The Missing Maps Project wants to map the world using a global network of volunteers

The Missing Maps Project wants to map the world using a global network of volunteers | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Dale Kunce wants to map the world. More specifically, he wants to plot parts of the world that remain uncharted. That doesn’t just include lands still unexplored, but large swaths of the undeveloped world with dense populations. A senior geospatial engineer at the American Red Cross, Kunce is one of the leaders of the Missing Maps Project. Launched earlier this month, the Missing Maps Project aims to tap a global network of volunteers to plot data about streets, buildings, rivers, mountains and other geographical features to improve the response of humanitarian groups. It’s the brainchild of the American Red Cross, British Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders and the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team.

If you want a culture of collaboration, you need to accept the LOLCats too | Opensource.com | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

This is one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite people in the business,Clay Shirky. I particularly like it because it illustrates the period many organizations find themselves in when trying to integrate social media internally. Before wikis were used by the Intelligence Community to develop reports on IEDs, people were creating user badges to show off their favorite NFL teams. Before my own company's Intranet won any awards, we had people talking about how they enjoy skinny dipping on their profile. Before our VPs starting using Yammer to communicate with the workforce, we had groups of Android geeks and fitness gurus.I'm telling you this because if you're implementing any type of social media behind your organizational firewall, you should prepare yourself, your colleagues, your bosses, your senior leadership for this one inexorable truth.
