OSE Forum

From Open Source Ecology
Jump to: navigation, search


This is not just a forum. It's a discourse on building the next civilization and solving all pressing world issues - via collaboration as in our Mission. Start with Social Contract, How We Collaborate, and What You Can Do. Also, see Areas of Activity and OSE Crash Course. Developer Crash Course. What Open Collaboration Is and Isn't. Then move on to solving all Pressing World Issues via Movement Entrepreneurship.


  • Listing and topgrading top issues, by country. Example - Outstanding USA Issues
  • Top issues - OSE and world related
  • Industrial Inertia Topics - this is a study of the 'way things are' as a way to underscore the importance of OSE work. Across all sectors and institutions. This is how we don't do things - by a deliberate elimination of inefficiencies from first principles design of an ideal system. This is the culture of OSE, which will be manifested in the world's first Network State.

Meta Positioning

  • Required Reading - OSE's fundamentally creative (longtermist, and explain longtermist and approach if there are immediate crises) approach to.solving pressing world issues.
  • RR 2 - OSE Whitepaper on Assumptions and therefore Approach, including sequencing and rollout
  • Moderation - Thank you. Your feedback is not consistent with our assumptions. Please read our assumptions and approach. If you question our assumptions, please let us know, and we can collaborate on a new approach based on the updates assumptions. We work transparently and are completely open to changing our assumptions if they are faulty.
  • Positioning - solving Pressing World Issues, but not with The Best and the Brightest - ie, need real, practical experience, technical skills, and a connection to building real things, not just policies or programs. An interdisciplinary viewpoint for systems thinking, coupled to practice. Not forgetting about nature. In short - Open Source Ecologist perspective.
