    1. Mein neuester Roman "Walkaway" ist ein optimistischer Katastrophenroman über bohemehafte Verweigerer, die sich vom Spätkapitalismus abwenden, wo sie nicht mehr gebraucht werden, und die gestohlene Software und Ruinen, die durch Umweltzerstörung hinterlassen wurden, benutzen, um vollautomatische kommunistische Luxusresorts auf Brachflächen zu bauen.

    1. Für die Zukunft sehe ich auch die Kooperation zwischen den Forschungseinrichtungen und der freien Wirtschaft als einen sehr wichtigen Punkt, um den Alltag noch stärker zu optimieren.

      Wer, bitte, will das?

    1. “Perhaps something occurred in the history of the concept of structure,” so he hypothesized, “that could be called an ‘event,’ if this loaded word did not entail a meaning which it is precisely the function of structural — or structuralist — thought to reduce or to suspect.” Structuralism’s eponymous reliance on structures, on that which by definition is permanent, stable, and universal, made it so that it had no lexicon, no methodology, to deal with “events,” i.e., with that which is singular, wholly other, non-repeatable.
    2. The sense of loss which speech inflicts is recuperated and “worked through” by writing.

    1. The end result is essentially a two-level application of Conway’s Law: a collaborative extended community of technologists that creates not simply a collection of disparate tools but rather chainable tools that leverage crowdsourced architectural principles to facilitate a level of coordination and interactivity we’ve never seen before.

      This coordinated technology environment, in turn, facilitates the reorganization within companies, as they now have the tools they need to break down organizational silos, and people within those companies self-organize along horizontal lines

    2. The causality question behind Conway’s Law, therefore, is less about how changing software organizations can lead to better software, but rather how companies can best leverage changing technology in order to transform their organizations.

      Hints at how to answer this question surprisingly come from the world of devops – surprising because the focus of devops is ostensibly on building and deploying better software more quickly. Be that as it may, there’s no question that technology change is a primary facilitator and driving force for the devops cultural and organizational shifts.

    3. Direct annotations don't work here.

    1. Die noch flächendeckend vorhandenen Straßenlaternen mit weißem Licht saugen dazu den Nachthimmel leer, weil nachtaktive Insekten von ihnen angezogen werden.
    1. The first effect is an outsourcing of policy development. Much of the research, number crunching, and legislative wordsmithing that used to be done by Capitol Hill staffers working for the government is now being done by outside experts, many of them former Hill staffers, working for lobbying firms, think tanks, consultancies, trade associations, and PR outfits.

    1. efforts can achieve great results in the relatively short term, transformational work requires prolonged, sustained collaboration. And it’s not only about projects or a technological fix, it’s also about advocacy, spreading the stories, hashing out critical ideas and being willing to learn together.
    1. Among the questions raised by translation is that of the classes of names: the Atikamekw language does not distinguish between the masculine and the feminine, but it distinguishes between animate and inanimate things. Is Wikipedia animated? The participants decided that it is.

    1. Maritime navigators and map-makers long ago standardized on the compass rose. But the compass echoes the clock face, which in turn mimics the direction of sweep of the sun across the sky when facing South in the Northern hemisphere, and the consequent sweep across the ground of any shadow as observed in the dominant culture of that hemisphere. Accordingly, navigational angles increase toward the right when facing out from any location, with zero usually at the top. Rotation (yaw) is thus positive "clockwise." This is a convention which is not to be contradicted.
    1. Readers need to be trained to understand that, when it comes to bureaucratic sources, ugliness in prose is usually not entirely aesthetic, but usually is covering up something far more egregious than style.
    2. When descriptions of violence are unavoidable, they will emphatically be in passive constructions
    3. While the bureaucratic voice works to present governments and corporations as placid, apologetic, and unmovable, it also works to make their victims as active and vital as possible.
    4. But the figures responsible for establishing procedure are nowhere to be found. Whenever possible, bureaucratic style will shift responsibility to immutable rules and directives that appear spontaneously from the ether.
    5. Who told them? The sentence does not make this clear, even though it is this unnamed actor, presumably a supervisor, who set this entire chain of events in motion. Deliberately pushed back as far off the stage as possible, there is no one here to responsibly hold accountable for subsequent events.
    6. The terms themselves—“passive” and “active”—rely heavily on received tropes of gendered norms, and for that reason alone we should be suspicious of them.
    7. as users become more creative in crafting language to reflect new kinds of expression, bureaucrats get more creative in using that expression to hide the levers of power
    1. Is "neutral point of view" an adequate criterion when stories from different perspectives are to be told? Is "citation needed" when it is oral history or folklore? Shall artifacts abandoned on the scenes of natural disasters or human conflicts be photoed and put into the Wikimedia Commons? How do we attribute these artifacts?

    1. We expect a farm operator is "friends" with each user and is available to help restore the long-lived session should it be lost.

      Federated Wiki is a place of friends.

    1. «Die Zersetzung der Demokratie beginnt mit der Zersetzung ihrer erkenntnistheoretischen Grundlagen.»
    1. “There’s a habit of mind that the masters have,” Gottman explained in an interview, “which is this: they are scanning social environment for things they can appreciate and say thank you for. They are building this culture of respect and appreciation very purposefully. Disasters are scanning the social environment for partners’ mistakes.”

    1. Es handelt sich um eine Politik ohne Zwang, die biopolitische Interessen in die Individuen hineinverlagert. Der gesellschaftliche Zugriff auf den weiblichen Körper bleibt bestehen, es sieht aber nach Freiheit aus, argumentiert wird mit "optimalen Gesundheitsentscheiden" oder "Risikominimierung". Dieser individualisierte Optimierungsimperativ macht es letztendlich schwierig zu erkennen, dass Kinderbekommen kein privates Ereignis ist, sondern auch Teil von gesellschaftspolitischen Dynamiken. Auf diese Weise wird auch das große Thema Care-Arbeit ausgeblendet.

    1. Es ist also kein Wunder, dass sich Menschen ihre Arbeit als Identitätsbezug erwählen. Denn für andere Tätigkeiten haben sie keine Zeit mehr. Eignet sich der Beruf jedoch nicht als identitätsstiftend, sind Frustration und Unzufriedenheit häufig eine Folge.
    1. Und oft scheinen Mängel an Mitbestimmung und die schlechten Arbeitsbedingungen Basis des Erfolgs eines Unternehmens zu sein.

    1. Jeder Wissenschaft liegen Annahmen zugrunde, etwa darüber, ob, was und wie wir erkennen können. Das zu negieren, das ist schlicht Unfug. In der Wirtschaft wird Ethik immer da wichtig, wo Entscheidungen über die Wirklichkeit getroffen werden.
    2. Außerdem sind viele heterodoxe Ansätze noch im Aufbau. Es gibt zwar Grundsteine, aber nicht immer ein konsistentes Theoriegebäude.

    1. Commoning Open Infrastructures for Open Science Opening the scientific process for creating knowledge needs opening the access to a number of diverse resources like scientific instruments, scientific data, digital services, software tools, knowledge and expertise, all needed in some form to conduct research. These elements can be regarded as infrastructural resources that are essential inputs to the research process. Making these resources open and shareable require the adoption of standards, the right legal frameworks and license, and clear rules for access. There is also the crucial aspect of defining the appropriate governance and management mechanisms that ensure their long term maintenance and availability. This presentation tackles commoning as the social practice suitable to create systems to manage these shared resources and provides examples in the area of open science. It also identifies some of the current challenges with particular focus on the digital infrastructures.
    1. Ultimately we need to create our own army of coders that have the sovereign attitude and can come up with a different social media architecture.

    1. The answer to this depends on how much you care. Immigrant neighbourhoods definitely care enough to mobilise real resistance movements to gentrification, but who wants to protect the hacker ethic? For some, the spirit of hacking is stupid and pointless anyway, an individualistic self-help impulse, not an authentic political movement. What does it matter if it gets gentrified?
    2. The countercultural trickster has been pressed into the service of the preppy tech entrepreneur class.
    1. The role of ‘boundary objects’ in facilitating work across disciplinary boundaries. How a lack of clarity about mutual definitions can both support and hinder interdisciplinary collaboration. The importance of reclaiming ‘the human’ as a shared focus in interdisciplinary research. Coping with the challenge of an imperialistic naturalism i.e. forceful assertions of the failure of the social sciences and the necessity of remaking them along the lines of the natural sciences. The messy reality of working in interdisciplinary teams. What does conceptual development mean in collaborative work across disciplinary boundaries? The role of personal relationships in facilitating succesful interdisciplinary work. Failures and frustrations of interdisciplinarity. Getting beyond the motif of the ‘attic scholar’ and socialising the research process. The role of doctoral pedagogy in hindering succesful interdisciplinary collaboration. Organisational helps and hindrances to working across disciplinary boundaries.
    1. information is to be used as a service to empower people, to help them innovate, to learn, to discover, to earn a living

      An alternative formulation of this sentence would replace service with Commons and to earn a living with to satisfy basic needs.

    2. how it’s going to be managed – how the world is going to be managed

      To note: Management is a very anglophonic notion of understanding how human processes can be shaped.

    3. As a metaphor, the double-sided coin, where you have on one side public data or government data – the data open for everyone, and on the flip side there is your personal data, which you should be choosing how to share and how it’s used.

      Can we assume this metaphor is flawed?

    4. I’m not only waiting for policy and business side, but also the society and research side, there clearly is a lot of value coming from researchers. Think of healthcare and genomic data not only coming from individuals but from a wider population.

      I feel there is an inbetween to big organisational bodies like public administration or corporations and society at large and academia. We could probably refer to this space as communities?

    5. opportunity
    6. innovate
    7. what the business is looking at
    1. Modules, libraries, frameworks, and other pieces of code are, by default, free and open source. There’s little reason to keep this kind of code closed. This iteration of startup-land is built on free components. Applications are usually free and rarely open source. In contrast to modules and lower-level code, applications require lots of customer service and typically attract few contributors. Few people volunteer to do customer service, but lots of people volunteer to contribute code. Hence, libraries and modules are more popular as volunteer-based projects. Services are often free at low levels of usage but almost never free at high levels of usage. This is because the price of web servers, transfer, and storage has not decreased significantly when you’re working at scale. Also, high-scale services require devops people - previously, roughly, known as system admins - to keep things running. While this is an enjoyable job for masochists and order muppets, it’s not something that people typically do for free. Hence, services are rarely purely volunteer projects.
    2. Foundation, tax, and donation-supported services are great, but we shouldn’t confuse price with cost, or lack of venture-capital uncertainty with a guarantee of longevity.

    1. Resize2fs did the trick and you can see that we have 49G partition now.

      swapon -a is missing, which means /etc/fstab has to be updated with eventual new partition UUIDs.

    1. Noel Gough (2012) writes, “complexity invites us to understand that many of the processes and activities that shape the worlds we inhabit are open, recursive, organic, nonlinear and emergent. It also invites us to be skeptical of mechanistic and reductionist explanations, which assume that these processes and activities are linear, deterministic and/or predictable and, therefore, that they can be controlled (at least in principle).”
    1. · These can either be "main categories", if the are "subclass_of" of the "root" element "Q1234#SSEDAS_TAX_UUID" · or are "subcategories", if the are "subclass_of" of one of the main categories.

    1. Hopefully it’s true to say that the next few months should be quite transformational :D

      Please also include the social side of Matrix: Which example communities exist, how is it used, how do the users respond to the varying interfaces?

    2. Threading

      The above may just be special cases of this.

    3. Pinned, tagged, and ‘liked’ messages

      And reposting. And commented reposting.


      Answering yet more questions on this page will turn it into a knowledge base which suffers from scrolling. It may be worth considering work on a nicely formatted user manual. Great examples here are Ceph and typesets with the Digital Publishing Toolkit.

    2. Whilst this has been okay for our initial experimentation and proof of concept, it’s likely that future homeserver work will be written in a more strongly typed language (e.g. Go).

      There can be objections against Go due to its Google backing. Rust appears to follow a less commercial intent, being brought up by Mozilla, and as a systems language compiles down to machine code useful in IoT devices.

    3. Can I run my own identity server? Yes - the reference implementation is sydent and you can run your own ID server cluster that tracks 3rd party to Matrix ID mappings. This won’t be very useful right now, though, and we don’t recommend it. If you want your server to participate in the global replicated Matrix ID service then please get in touch with us. Meanwhile, we are looking at ways of decentralising the ‘official’ Matrix identity service so that identity servers are 100% decentralised and can openly federate with each other. N.B. that you can use Matrix without ever using the identity service - it exists only to map 3rd party IDs (e.g. email addresses) to matrix IDs to aid user discovery.

      This will have to be even more precisely specified, documented, tracked, communicated, developed, ...

    4. End-to-end encryption is coming shortly to clients for both 1:1 and group chats to protect user data stored on servers, using the Olm cryptographic ratchet implementation.

      This would also answer another point of criticism for the redecentralize interview.

    5. Servers maintain a public/private key pair, and sign the integrity of all messages in the context of the historical conversation, preventing tampering.

      This closely relates to the notes left on a blog post about setting up Let's Encrypt with Matrix.

    6. options for decentralising or migrating user accounts between multiple servers

      This relates to a point of criticism within the redecentralize interview.

    7. implement clustering

      Now this will be interesting.

    8. How do I register custom matrix event types?

      This resembles the federation of Plugins for different (federated) wiki activities in the log. How could we standardize around oEmbed (+ rich JS Web/Service Workers/Components?), Twitter Cards, Facebook OpenGraph, JSON-LD, RDFa, microdata et al. for sharing "widgets"?

    9. what is right for the consumer

      Please help in deconstructing the consumer <> producer dichotomy to use even less commercially sounding language in our everyday life.

    10. Matrix is deliberately not a ‘pure’ peer-to-peer system; instead each user has a well-defined homeserver which stores his data and that he can depend upon.

      There must be underlying assumptions backing that choice. Which are they?

    11. It’s almost a contradiction in terms to get competitive between openly interoperable communication projects

      ... in terms of ... ?

    12. by deploying their own server.

      When will the clients be full servers, to build resilient peer to peer infrastructure?

    13. the whole web

      I suppose Matrix isn't going to replace HTTP and HTML very soon, but it can be thought of as an addition to other federated data layers like Hypothes.is or Federated Wiki, to comprehend their social interaction patterns with more real-time oriented interfaces.

    14. Client<->Server API - defines how Matrix compatible clients communicate with Matrix homeservers. Server<->Server API - defines how Matrix homeservers exchange messages and synchronise history with each other.

      Given the data model (which allows merges) forkdb could be a close candidate to substitute a Client <-> Client API (also called peer to peer).

      Play with it.

    15. It’s not actually incorporated anywhere at the moment but we are looking at the best legal structure for the future (and as of October 2015 we have hopefully found one). Whatever the legal structure, we are committed to keeping the Matrix project open.

      This is most interesting in law contexts of international or european order. How to maintain a Knowledge Commons?

    16. We are called Matrix because we provide a structure in which all communication can be matrixed together.
    1. Now we’ll want to find and edit the following lines: tls_certificate_path: “/etc/ssl/nginx/examplecom_crt.pem” # We can comment this out, as long as we set no_tls to true below # tls_private_key_path: “/whatever/path/synapse/generated” # PEM dh parameters for ephemeral keys tls_dh_params_path: “/whatever/path/synapse/generated” # Turn off TLS everywhere (this overrides the listeners section below) no_tls: True
    2. We’re going to assume you have a Synapse installed and listening on the standard ports, 8008 and 8448. If not, follow the Synapse README and come back here when you’re done. Everybody ready? Okay, good.
    1. Now we’ll want to find and edit the following lines: tls_certificate_path: “/etc/ssl/nginx/examplecom_crt.pem” # We can comment this out, as long as we set no_tls to true below # tls_private_key_path: “/whatever/path/synapse/generated” # PEM dh parameters for ephemeral keys tls_dh_params_path: “/whatever/path/synapse/generated” # Turn off TLS everywhere (this overrides the listeners section below) no_tls: True

      Explaining the need for a certificate here without an associated private key could help in understanding why they are needed at all in a no_tls: True scenario.

    2. We’re going to assume you have a Synapse installed and listening on the standard ports, 8008 and 8448. If not, follow the Synapse README and come back here when you’re done. Everybody ready? Okay, good.

      This makes it easy to oversee the need for having a properly set up TLS setup for both an eventual reverse proxy and the synapse daemon's and matrix protocol's internal message signing as hidden in the text further below.

      Explicitly favouring the no_tls: True approach should help in adopting decoupled, recource efficient TLS-offloading deployment scenarios. This should eventually be automated, as Let's Encrypt certificates are only valid for three months.

    1. the broader community of practice in modern publishing technology

      This includes the Hybrid Publishing Toolkit as well as the work of substance.io

    1. “We lack the creative faculty to imagine that which we know.” That was back in 1820
    1. The Lead In: What context is needed to understand the problem space? Statement of Originality: What is a gap in our knowledge of this area? Justification: What is a tangible benefit of filling this gap?

      Vision und Interaktion sind im Menü und der vertikalen Hierarchie der Seite unterschiedlich angeordnet.

    1. Maintaining and moderating the forum and interlinking people and streams of conversations


      Non-regular members receive monthly digests into their inbox. E-Mail notifications to conversations act as ad-hoc mailing lists.

    2. 5mmm


    3. Partnerships, cooperations, and networks

      Would we have a circle for that? Who's heading its direction? And which strategy do we see emerging?

    4. Description of the problem

      Here we probably need a new consensus.

    5. Scale of the problem

      Interesting to escalate into a separate pad.

    6. Previous approaches to solving the problem

      What about the Buen Vivir map from Florian Ledermann or imagination.social?

    7. 2.2Your approach to solving the problem

      This whole section needs to be revised for the final report.

      We could have a pad for this.

    8. 2.2.2 Target groups

      Could get a separate pad.

    9. 2.3 Sustainability of your solution

      See sustainability pad and associated, removed critique.

    10. 2.4 Risks

      See risks pad.

    11. Recommendation: Stay between 2000 and 5000 characters.

      Could get its own social impact pad for the future.

    12. Deliverable
    13. Appendix 1
    14. Recommendation: In addition to assessing the values of the KPIs you measured, please stay between 3000 and 5000 characters in the description of your evaluation.
    15. 3.2User-based evaluation of your concept
    16. We will import the data of the 26 SSEDAS partners in the next 2 months. The template can also be used by other partners, as it is probably used for the next Shareable MapJam. The generated workflow will be manually tested and then automated. It can be used to integrate any type of POIs, that are in non-active data silos or get collected on the spot at onland-events, as the Shareable MapJam. Active data will be ported via the ETL.

      sic We should have talked about this. From the pad:

      I am challenging this statement, as we did never collectively agree on using CHEST resources to support the SSEDAS process. Also the evaluation of the mapping template is not backed by collective appreciation, as it has been created in an enclosed, intransparent process.

    17. As we are currently mainly focusing on the discussion in discourse

      Maybe the paragraph from above can be put here?

    18. and especially the forum is an active and very important tool for the development of the community. In“Discourse” we up to now have over150 people involved, which generated more than 550 topics and in total over 3500 posts up to now. Each week we have 3 – 5 new contributors coming in.

      Everything related to the Discourse has nothing to do with the Website, it is a separate service.

      Else we have to talk about the whole Web Services Infrastructure here, if "Website" is understood as the sum of its parts and not as Landing Page.

    19. We conducted 15mmm, mapping month may 2015, which involved partners from more than 9 countries, that mapped around 300 initiatives with our mapping tool. It helped us with user-feedback on the tools, lead to a pivoting in the taxonomy approach and helped to generate new tag-categories for the taxonomy development. It also generated a lot of attention and broadened our networks.

      Was marked for rework, but ignored.

      Is missing references to, at least:

      • Shareable Map Jam - April 2016
      • OSCE days - June 2016
    20. Given the complexity of deploying and maintaining non-core infrastructure, we might start with a very basic and lightweight solution

      This sentence is not mirrored in the pad.

    21. 3

      Let's rework this section for the final report by making use of the methodologies provided.

    22. the results of our first Scrum sprints

      I am wondering why the risks don't mention the threats to the Commoning process which we often documented and discussed.

    23. as agile and leading edge development can be planned in waterfall perspective, but needs to be agile in “nuts-and-bolts”-development.

      This is incomprehensible to me.

    24. To cope with that we follow reduce down to a minimal viable product (MVP), that is just good enough to deliver value and generate expectation towards the next iteration, and by that build in small tangible steps and organic growth to maturity. - Very often organizations fail, as the complexity of the tasks to process is growing much faster thanthe ability of the individuals, and the organizational body to handle that complexity.

      These paragraphs contain assumtions which can be challanged and informed by a shown deeper understanding of network theory.

    25. In the cycle of technological development and it ́s respective funding, there is an upwards-spiral interaction between funding and proof of concept. Each new funding unlocks the potential for a further elaborated proof of concept and maturity, which then enables to leverage further funding for investing in the further advancement, allowing the generation of further funds. That cycle must be completed until a certain maturity is reached, and the viable product turns into running operations. One of the biggest risks is, to not deliver in one iteration of this cyclical proof of concepts stages, which is often connected to the lack of focus or milestones and goals set too far to reach.

      This wants to be reworked for the final report.

    26. s the open source editor system we fork from (uMap) has an active developer community, we will strategize our development to be useful for the whole community and the development of the base editor as well, and engage in the communication streams of the uMap community, which ultimately also enriches the OpenStreetMap community, as uMap is based on OpenStreetMap.

      Split up this sentence in many.

    27. that they perceive as useful in their work, and that usability is a crucial point in order to make editor and platform successful.
    28. filter categories / a taxonomy

    29. a broad community approach

    32. Even early adopters, that are interesting in engaging in this filed, are not able to get an overview of the mushrooming activities and possibilities.

      That's us.

    33. within any other framework.

      outside of their silo

    34. I am dreaming about

      we are also doing

    35. 1.How many people are affected by the problem? Please describe the European dimension of the problem. Depending on the type of problem you are dealing with, it may be useful to provide additional information concerning the scale of the problem (e.g. size of the area, percentage or number of people affected in the case of environmental protection activities). 2.Has the scale of the problem changed during the reporting period? If possible, please also provide estimates for the likely future development. 3.What social consequences have already occurred, and what costs have been incurred by society as a result? What do you expect to be the consequences and costs if the problem remains unsolved?

      This sounds like a proper impact assessment.

    36. 1.Which specific problem did you intent to solve? The social problem should be described as specifically as possible. If several problems can be identified, they should be prioritized based on importance. 2.Who is affected by the problem? Please describe in detail who is affected by the problem and how so. 3.How has your perception of the problem changed during the reporting period (lessons learned? 4.How has the social problem itself evolved over time? What is the current situation? How will the problem develop in the future if no action is taken? 5.What are the underlying causes of the problem? Please describe interdependencies of different causes.

      Did anyone actually ever read this?

    37. Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, UK, Spain, Switzerland, but also USA, India, Brazil and Mexico

      Mapping of the Mappings plus a spatial mapping of partner organizations, actors and projects.

    38. Network, supporting partners

      All CONFIRMED below seem a bit unneccesary.

    39. Non-funded Project Partnerships

      There are so many more which seem to be hard to remember:

      • Value Flows
      • Encommuns
      • pixelHumain
      • IndieHosters
      • OpenStreetMap France - uMap

      better: community building around taxonomy development

    45. governance structure development


    46. implemented

      better: finalized, as not implemented would be contradictory to currently in programming

    1. But we as an industry are doing a far better job than ever of abiding by code standards and running our work through linters and validators.

      There will be a lot to discover. Mapbox is using a linter to ease the language in documentation, for example.

    2. state regulatory boards

      Which are these in self-organized contexts?

    3. Engineers must answer for their work legally and professionally.

      Interesting to consider in community-supported, federated economies of practice.

    1. will import the data of the 26 SSEDAS partners in the next 2 months. The template can also be used by other partners, as it is probably used for the next Shareable MapJam. It is a very helpful tool for offline – mapping events.

      I am challenging this statement, as we did never collectively agree on using CHEST resources to support the SSEDAS process.

      Also the evaluation of the mapping template is not backed by collective appreciation, as it has been created in an enclosed, intransparent process.

    2. he blog and newsletter are not very frequently used

      Let's use positive language here, i.e. blog is updated with essay-like (research) articles, while regular community updates are distributed via our mailing lists.

    3. The map of the maps is currently in an early prototype visualization:

      Here we should strategize how to use the data from the mappings of mappings to create a transformaps overview on TransforMap.co, using our API (see above).

    4. The website, and especially the forum is an active and very important tool for the development of the community. In “discourse” we up to now have over 150 people involved, which generated more than 550 topics and in total over 3500 posts up to now. Each week we have 3 – 5 new contributors coming in.

      Does not belong here.

    5. 04.04.201504.04.2015We conducted 15mmm, mapping month may 2015, which involved partners from more than 9 countries, that mapped around 300 initiatives with our mapping tool. It helped us with user-feedback on the tools and to generate new tag-categories for the taxonomy development. It also generated a lot of attention and broadened our networks.

      This whole paragraph is just wrong, as the Mapping has to happen within the project's timeframe and is - in following the application text - most close to Shareables March Map Jam and the OSCE days during June.

      In May we could link up with OuiShare Fest, too.

    6. ???

      We are looking into several options (dswarm, manual mappings, collaborative ontology editor suites) and evaluate them against our needs.

    7. already got a first prototype http://demo.transformap.co/ running, for which we get good feedback.

      This precurser needs to be seperated from a display frontend we are building to consume the API, i.e. to display the mapping of maps.

    8. For the SSEDAS partners we develop a first Frontend representation to be ready end of April.

      This does not need to be here.

    9. do not follow the earlier approach, but build on another open source editor (Umap)

      We are using the frontend module of a popular collaborative open source web gis (Leaflet.Storage from uMap) and adapt it to our data storage backend.

    10. 17.04.2016

      Let's say end of february instead? It's continuous integration, why there will never be a stable release.

    11. 01.03.2016

      Should be more like end of May 2016.

    12. Due Date*

      Most of these dates are made up, right? Or is there any reference document where these can be derived from?

    13. hael & Gualter your comment here

      In the etherpad I am also mentionned ...

    14. in our online-forum there are several expert-discussions around linked open data going on

      These are side aspects of our networking activity. This deliverable aims at a consciously moderated process.

    15. With the 26 SSEDAS partners we are building a common taxonomy for Social and Solidarity Economy in Europe. The first draft is ready by end of Feb.

      I suppose this does not count as a CHEST deliverable, as the current process doesn't follow our community-oriented, collaborative approach.

    16. We did something like that, right?

      The Federating Civic Data as a fringe event to the final Share-PSI 2.0 workshop could count as such. But only part one of two.

    17. noting any discrepancies against the Project Planand action to recover situation if necessary

      Where is our Project Plan and how do applied mitigation strategies look like?

    18. other dissemination activity

      Constant social media presence, Webinars, networking activities via travels to our partners (Encommuns, p6data), patterns of commoning article from Ellen.

    19. publicity

      Constant networking and mentioning of transformap via our partners within the (extending) network.

      We could show Discourse or Website statistics here.

    20. publications

      Adrien's and Gualter's blog posts most notably.

    21. Describe any management concerns and activities to recover the situation

      This will be interesting to read and should link to the document for our Project Advisors.

    1. Wikidata, in some sense, turns DBpedia around, in that Wikidata is intended to be a data source to populate Wikipedia infoboxes than the other way around.
    2. I read my first books on data mining back in the early 1990's and one thing I read was that "80% of the effort in a data mining project goes into data cleaning."
    1. The convention is to use a field called type to store document types, but many frameworks use other fields, as CouchDB itself doesn’t care which field you use.
    1. Significantly, artistic thinking aspires to develop in the opposite direction. An artistic image works its way from the realist, rational and analytic understanding back towards a mythical and animistic grasp of the world. Science and art, therefore, seem to move past each other in opposite directions along the same continuum. Whereas scientific thought progresses and differentiates, artistic thought seeks to return back to a de-differentiated and experientially singular, oceanic understanding of the world. Artistic imagination seeks expressions that are capable of mediating the entire complexity of human existential experience through singular images. In that sense, art is a perpetual tautology. It keeps repeating one and the same message: the experience of being a human being in this world. The paradoxical task of uniting singularity and universality is achieved through poeticised images that are experienced and lived rather than analyzed and understood. Alvar Aalto points out this paradoxical task and capacity of art: “In every case one must achieve a simultaneous solution of opposites[…] Nearly every design task involves te…, often hundreds, sometimes thousands of different contradictory elements, which are forced into functional harmony only by man’s will. This harmony cannot be achieved by any other means than those of art.”

    1. Our objective is to construct an interdisciplinary forum concerned with post-linguistic theories, such as those developed by Deleuze & Guattari, Derrida and Foucault, de-stabilising, de-constructing de-territorialising knowledge in order to re-consider the current civic environment.

      Weren't all these authors from the late 2nd millenium? No news in this regard?
