I first found out that the term collaborative literacy was a thing from The word Collaborative Literacy wants to convey that collaboration is a learned skill i.e. a literacy.

Principles and Procedures

OSE is a project that follows certain standard procedures to enhance collaboration and Economic Time Binding:

  1. Publish early and often.
  2. If it is worth doing at all, it is worth doing badly.
  3. Publish on the wiki. The wiki is publicly viewable and editable, therefore anyone can have access to what you publish. If you send that information to a single person, then you have reached only a small fraction of your potential audience. Because we value open access to information, and because we have open boundaries to participation - publishing on the wiki is preferable to sending emails.
  4. Our near and long term goal is virally replicable, open source enterprise following the principles of Economic Time Binding. The social contract on Campus focuses around this.
  5. We are building a Construction Set, not a single product. If you like to think of a 'single product', that product is the entire Set.
  6. Subject matter expert, open source contributors lead the way. The project focuses on identifying and recruiting such contributors towards a greater goal than they could achieve themselves.
  7. Our methodology is open source, agile development.
  8. Our governance is based on meritocracy.
  9. We favor division of labor performed by multi-skilled generalists.
  10. Our human goal is to promote Integrated Humans who are aware of Self-Determination Theory.
  11. We believe that the most effective road towards peacekeeping is effective production. Progressive military people also believe this.
  12. We like to create tools. A tool can be used for good or evil. We are interested in tools that lead to regenerative development.
  13. We believe in 8 Forms of Capital plus the ninth one, Open Source Capital - defined as the wealth that comes from pursuing Distributive Enterprise
  14. We do not invent anything new. We study industry standards and build upon them to innovate on integrated, open source variants.
  15. We believe in a low-risk approach of building upon known solutions, rather than chasing for exotic new ones, because known solutions are sufficient to produce regenerative development at a modern standard of living.
  16. The proof of concept of the Global Village Construction Set is to demonstrate that a community of a dozen open source individuals can attain a modern standard of living using appropriate open source technology, reaching metal smelting and semiconductor production from any parcel of land that has rocks, sunlight, plants, soil, and water.
