  • Work - Information mining — updated March 31, 2021
    Purpose: Map pools of talent (open source communities, specialized social media groups, etc.), 100$ budget. Use Diigo to find and bookmark organizations, communities, projects relevant for this project. These are pool of talent, targets and channels, you'll engage to draw some talent into our project. Use the following tags: leaves_blender, capacity, potential_partner, project or organization. If you don’t have access to Diigo ask Tibi to invite you. https://groups.diigo.com/group/sensorica-knowledge Coordinate with people working on Dissemination. NOTE: Inform the Mapping initiative of Good Labs / contact Patrick about your findings, they use this data to study patterns in commons-based peer production. Why use Diigo and not a Google Spreadsheet or something else? 1. Diigo already contains a lot of information (see food_system tag for example); 2. Your findings can be recycled in other projects by other people (part of our commons)

    Purpose: Building understanding, budget of 700$ Map existing open source and DIY projects. Study existing devices and talk to their creators and users. Search literature for such devices. WORK ETHIC REQUIREMENTS # Work should be done transparently, allowing all project contributors to provide feedback and to contribute. # Contributions without proper documentation are invalid. # Documentation should be created progressively, during every work session, not at the end of a task. # This task cannot be monopolized by any contributor, it is open to participation. # Number of man-hours and budget are fixed. If more time is spent than planned and money to be paid surpasses the allocated budget, contributors involved in this task split the allocated budget in proportion to everyone's contribution. # Contributions that do not reflect good work, that are inflated, or that are not properly documented can be redflagged by any contributor in this project, which can lead to the invalidation of the contribution. Repetitively misrepresenting work in logged contributions can lead to expulsion from project. Documentation is done in the Design doc. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1g6DbV0mSqwU6rdLqyrv5Ctw_3cHamuPZLFXwajPkN4g/edit?usp=sharing Diigo must be used for information mining, using the tag leaves_blender https://groups.diigo.com/group/sensorica-knowledge/content/tag/leaves_blender

  • Work - R&D mechanics — updated March 25, 2021
    Purpose: Design, budget of 2,250$ DESIGN REQUIREMENTS Easily replicable design with stock components and minimal use of custom parts (unless they can be digitally fabricated with a RepRap class 3-D printer or CNC mill –e.g. limit to what is found in most fab labs and avoid high energy processes and a skilled machinist). The designers should seek to minimize cost and complexity while keeping throughput high (continuous if possible). WORK ETHIC REQUIREMENTS # Work should be done transparently, allowing all project contributors to provide feedback and to contribute. # Contributions without proper documentation according to requirements of CERN open source hardware license are invalid. # Documentation should be created progressively, during every work session, not at the end of a task. # This task cannot be monopolized by any contributor, it is open to participation. # Milestones must be announced to project affiliates as they are reached. # Number of man-hours and budget are fixed. If more time is spent than planned and money to be paid surpasses the allocated budget, contributors involved in this task split the allocated budget in proportion to everyone's contribution. # Contributions that do not reflect good work, that are inflated, or that are not properly documented can be redflagged by any contributor in this project, which can lead to the invalidation of the contribution.
