HEY David! Welcome!
On behalf of the entire community, I want to thank Openhack for your participation and comradry to support us here!
We are piloting the GLocal model of Massive Open Online Citizen’s Collaboration (MOOCC). Imagine a massive network of skilled commoners who can rove from one location of the world, or one theme, to help solve critical world problems.And also image if we can form local innovation hubs all over the globe that share in a common design commons of useful designs. We could actually all become local peer production centers run as production cooperatives. @adam founded Enkel and his model seems a good one to replicate around the globe.Can we create a solidarity network such that each is a cooperative production centre?
I’ve already been telling the community about Openhack! Please browse the awesome list of growing projects! Look at @Cindy project. There’s also one for mapping boreholes and wellpoints to see how much water is being sucked out of the ground. I wonder if there’s a tech that can detect and tell if there’s an illegal borehole or wellpoint? Any sensors sensitive enough to detect changes and microflows of water movement in soils some distance away? I wonder if plant root systems can tell and how spatially sensitive their tap roots are to water?
