I stumbled into an organization which focuses on an idea I myself came up with a few weeks ago, and I am currently trying to incubate it into “something” if anything at all. So in the meantime I urge you to check out Anansi Spaceworks and the other related organizations…
It’s all about applying the openness of “open source” and similar concepts to every science and technology field. When the idea came to me I cheasily termed it “Open Space”, but that name is eagerly used for other things, so if and when I incubate this little idea it will surely have a brand new a super crisp name.
