The Factor e Live Distillations was OSE's last effort of communicating an integrated program. In 2016, we are moving to formulate our program of cultural programming via an OSE News Show. Concept is to use Natron Aftereffects to report the basic concepts and progress of OSE from an overall interest perspective. The positioning is the Home of the Open Source Economy. Open source hardware, new and old tech, regenerative development, movement entrepreneurship, fundamental solutions to pressing world issues, integrated ecosystems, etc.

Episode 1

The world seen through the eyes of open collaboration.

Start with what open collaboration is, and that open source is a part of it, that OS has a specific definition, not whatever someone says that it is. And that OSHW does not exist. A compelling and powerful message that sets the tone for the discussion, based on OSE learnings. And that if you are not trying to solve wicked problems, OS may not apply - it just doesn't matter. Cover the ethical issues, and moralistic critique.
