The Core Nexus
I've been putting together a document called "Core Nexus" recently, which pulls together the best practices I know of from several systems, including +Shereef Bishay
's Better Means ( http://bettermeans.com/front/index.html
), Jim and Michele McCarthy's Core Protocols ( http://liveingreatness.com/
), and more.
Collaborate: fork, diff, merge
OK, a bit of context here. I wrote a post recently asking "What if we checked the commons into GitHub?" ( http://www.harlantwood.net/pub/What_if_We_Checked_the_Commons_into_Github/index.html
So naturally, I am authoring this "Core Nexus" document in Github, as I believe it to be a prime candidate for remixing -- ie we need luminous cores, for all our fractal collaboration groups and organizations, and we want gather, curate, and remix each others' collections of best practices.
You can see the rendered document on Github here: https://github.com/harlantwood/The_Project/blob/master/Core_Nexus.markdown
Here is what the markdown source that generates the document looks like: https://raw.github.com/harlantwood/The_Project/master/Core_Nexus.markdown
If you want to try editing / remixing, I highly
, which connects directly to your github account (which is free, dead simple signup in 15 seconds).
To test this concept (please do!):
1. create a github account
2. go here https://github.com/harlantwood/The_Project/blob/master/Core_Nexus.markdown
and click the Edit button.
This will fork the repository for you, and let you change it as you wish. As an example, here are the additions that +Glistening Deepwater
made in her fork: https://github.com/Glisten/The_Project/compare/4f7957a...66d70f6
I am personally getting pretty fed up with all of our greatness leaking out in dribbles across hundreds of facebook threads that are subsequently unfindable unless you look in +Zaq Mosher
's google docs ( https://docs.google.com/folder/d/0B5PC4hPnRiAYWUpkQmRkOEUwN1k/edit?pli=1
) <sad face>. I also have major concerns about the ownership of the IP generated in FB. My ideal would be to generate material in a "collaboratory" elsewhere (I vote for github or better to start), and cross-post content or links to FB / G+ / T / statusnet / etc.
I'd be happy to do a demo call, where we try the github + prose.io
toolchain. We could do the call on G+, and be forking each other's systems (oh my) during the call, giving tech support as needed, etc. Want to play?
