Remaining Open Ethnographer annotations to import

Out of 688 Open Ethnographer annotations that could not be imported automatically to Discourse, @anu already imported 644 manually.

The following 44 annotations could not (yet) be imported as the quote could not be found in the target text. This is mostly due to missing translations (not yet imported from Drupal). Importing these 44 annotations is managed in this Dynalist task.

The structure of annotations below is “URL, code name, quote text”.

challenge: issues of fairness

However, issues of fairness arise around any reallocation of right-to-access that are not completely solved, and this makes policy making in this area potentially controversial.

challenge: privatization

In an effort to correct for this situation, some public assets have been turned over to the private sector. This move has had mixed results: many privatization programmes have suffered from unintended consequences – exhibit A being the creation of a powerful oligarch caste in Russia in a very short time. The general consensus seems to be that it might be interesting to explore new avenues.

challenge: state struggle

Over the centuries, nation states all over the world have developed or acquired control of assets of all kinds. The overarching logic behind their development and acquisition is generally to enable the provision of public services. In recent decades this model has become overstretched: states have found themselves struggling to find the resources to keep those assets manned so that provision of such services could continue, and had to retreat from many non-core services. Consequently, many such assets lie unused; some are beginning to deteriorate. They are extremely varied in nature; many are buildings, gardens, parks. Others are utilities (networks) or even digital assets (data).


https://edgeryders.eu/t/why-we-care-about-stewardship/3460/1?oe=1
communities

Communities have been singled out as candidates for taking care of some public assets, in particular those that can be used to provide services to the community itself. In at least one European country, the UK, community owned/managed assets have become an important policy issue. For example, plans are emerging that could result in up to 500 public libraries being turned over to local communities, together with seed funding, allowing each local community to find a sustainable operation model for its library or see it die. Locality, alone, has received over 6,500 enquiries from communities that are keen to acquire, develop and/or manage land and buildings over the past 5 years

communities

The Edgeryders community has accumulated significant experience in this area. Many of us have been experimenting with ways to communally manage diverse assets including: spaces like the unMonastery, digital mesh networks, geographic databases or software projects as public or common goods, oriented towards the community’s well being. There is now evidence available to indicate that communities can indeed provide stewardship, re-using assets, exapting them for new uses, and preserving their functionality and beauty over time. However, issues of fairness arise around any reallocation of right-to-access that are not completely solved, and this makes policy making in this area potentially controversial.

design intervention

Breathing Games (www.breathinggames.net) promotes respiratory health by encouraging the appropriation of care by each citizen.
We create a common – collectively managed resources that are freely accessible and can be used and enriched by everyone – by spurring collaboration between all interested stakeholders to build on collective intelligence
The project concentrates on healthy behaviours and has been developed collectively with patient associations, health institutions, universities and other organisations.
The games produced participatorily are meant to improve the quality and life expectancy of people with respiratory problems – by educating, transforming therapy into games, and promoting healthy habits. They can be reused and adapted by everyone to address local problems and needs, as long as the free/libre and open-source licences are maintained. We also develop open-source hardware such as flowmeter for domesic use. This material shall enable everyone, in all countries, to get indicators about his health (lung capacity tests), and shall also provide decentralized, anonimyzed data to advance public health research (blockchain/IPFS).
On top of that we have been building a community of people to further develop and distribute the games. We successfully organized gamejams about cystic fibrosis and asthma in Switzerland and in Canada, and plan other events on breathing health and chronic respiratory diseases in the next months. The audience is huge: 1 out of 5 people in the world suffer from chronic respiratory diseases, and half of them do not follow the therapy as agreed with their caregiver.
Key to the success of this initiative is the socio-economic, non-exclusive model we developed, as well as the platform we use to log contributions and redistribute to the contributors the raised funds. We use agile development methodologies and allow members to self-organise, so that we build on the collective intelligence and transform ideas into sustainable, scalable products and services.
The participatory, inclusive approach enables us to build research-backed games that also are attractive and fun to play with. Interdisciplinarity helps us gain a multifaceted, holistic vision of healthcare and fosters collaboration between different parties, beyond institutions and countries. That is key in tackling challenges in health care.
Through games, therapy can become a more joyful practice – would you like to follow a tedious, boring therapy one hour daily, as children with cystic fibrosis do since they are 4 years old?
Are you also interested in employing entertaining, game-like elements in the health care system and therapy?
Is there a health-related challenge in your neighbourhood, community, which you think you could solve by employing similar approach?
Do you have some experience in creating health-related apps and props?

design intervention

Easy Doc is an app designed to simplify the approach that each person has with the world of healthcare.
The user the app is intended for, is a person who is for the first time in a stranger city for various reasons, work or travel.
Suddenly they have an emergency related to their health, they need for an urgent attention but they do not know where to ask for advice.
Through this app, with the help of geolocation on a map, the user can identify three categories of health services whose they could have an immediate need (medical, public or private health facility, pharmacy).
The ease of use allows the user to find the service they need as near as possible to them.
Pharmacies, hospitals and clinics can be localized, with their day and night schedules and their availability.
About the specialists, the user can:
-check reviews and the starlets popularity (on a scale from one to five) assigned to each doctor by other users who have benefitted in the past of their performances;
-book directly, consulting a calendar in which they can select the day and time of the visit;
-make a reservation by phone call;
-enter into a private chat with the doctor to book their visit or ask for a quick medical advice.
Once the visit would have taken place, the user will be invited by the app to give a feedback about the service they have received. It is expressed through the starlets and/or by a written comments.
Moreover, a planner would show the user their appointments and push up notification would remind them the forthcoming ones.
The present status of the project is the developing one.
A brainstorming has helped us to find out problems and needs of the users and the possible solutions.
We have highlighted components and characteristics of the app, the challenge we want to face and the characters involved.
Through an Empathy map, we have figured out who actually are our users of the app.
A User flow has drafted which pages should link to each other, to design call-to-actions that lead users through the right screen flow.
Then Wireframes have visually illustrated the structure of the app. They have also been useful to allow a stranger to the app to test it and to point out possible mistakes.
We are now working at the final prototype and we hope to start a new Usability testing as soon as possible.
The goal is to improve the service offered from the app and to facilitate the search for future users.

disruption

Wait. Self-organised people with no money and no organisation that beat credentialed, moneyed professionals at their own game? We’ve seen this before. It was Wikipedia outcompeting Encyclopedia Britannica. It was OpenStreetMap pushing to the curbs Garmin and TomTom. It was Facebook groups coordinating disaster relief after the Nepal 2015 earthquakes and the Tbilisi 2015 flash flood, way before the government and NGOs could get their act together. It was Internet-coordinated young newcomers changing the rules of the political game, and even bringing down entire regimes who seemed to have all the power and all the money, in Egypt, Tunisia and Ukraine.
We have a word for these phenomena: we call them disruption. They are associated with supplying goods or services in a new way, that substitutes collective intelligence and distributed effort for vertical organisations. This new way happens to be vastly more efficient than the old ones.

diversity

Access Space has a very wide range of participation.

  • If you split them into three groups, <25years, 25-50years, >50 years, then those groups are roughly similar in size.
  • Roughly 1/3 of our participants are from minority ethnic backgrounds.
  • Around 1/3 of our participants have a university education.
  • Almost 2/3 of our participants are unemployed, or under-employed.
  • Around 1/5 of our participants have some form of disability or long-term illness - particularly learning difficulties, like Asperger’s Syndrome (associated with high intelligence) and mental health difficulties, such as depression.
  • 1/10 of our participants have a serious problem with housing. Either they’re homeless, or they are living in insecure, or temporary accommodation.
    We had more than 2000 people use the space in 2011, which added up to more than 12000 hours of usage. Helping and facilitating this number of people, particularly when some of them have difficulties, is a huge job.

drones

@Matthias yeah I am tired of hearing what good drones could do but never seem to get around to actually doing. For example Nepal is not terribly far away from Pakistan where we know there is lots of drones loitering around. Many of them could have hopped over to Nepal with at max one stop-over for refueling in no time flat. I may have missed some (thanks for the link @Alberto ), but so far I haven’t seen many of the unambiguously beneficial uses exploited a whole lot. And some of them have been blindingly obvious in the last couple of weeks, and really not difficult to get at least working on.

I don’t want to belittle the fact that there are many small initiatives all over the place, and in most cases there is a LOT more work going on inside than meets the eye. One of the problems I have though is that if large sums of government money are to be spent on such a technology - that obviously has a significant and very complex societal impact - we don’t seem to bother to discuss it in an effective manner. Such an attempt would include the people that make the tech, the people that operate it, and - very important - the ones affected by it. Before we produce all the facts. With drones we are looking at a very wide range of outcomes we could end up with, some of them very difficult or impossible reverse. Also we should be aware of a problem’s roots, even when we feel compelled to fight the symptoms. We need to keep track of the externalities of a technology, and stay realistic.
At the moment all money pretty much goes exclusively to the usual suspects. How can civil society, at least parts of the “global south”, or women’s voices be heard and considered in such a process? When would this be done if not in the early stages of making the concepts? Are the current practices established in industry conducive to such a process (large mil ind complex organizations elbowing for money)? How is their track record of managing such programs, that need to stay flexible and permeable to tackle a field full of unknown unknowns (and un-unknow some knowns in the process) - to say it with the words of Rumsfeld and Žižek, respectively.
Of course it won’t be simple and it won’t be without friction, but if I weigh this against the societal cost of opportunity, and ER’s chance to help connect and guide many center actors through a very dynamic edge - the problem has our name written all over it. I would love to hear other people’s perception on this before I publish the next steps I could envision this taking. I am not only looking at @Marc @francesco210173 @Baptiste Labat but expressly into the social/gender direction (@noemi , @SamarAli , others - it is not super urgent but perhaps you know someone you can nudge when you are a little less busy than you must be now?)

It operates with practically no hierarchy and no management. People decide by themselves what role to play, by joining one of several groups (about 10 members to a group) which exist to carry on specific tasks (like onboarding new patients). An organising committee does its best to keep people on the same page. A weekly meeting votes on general issues. A mailing list deals with specific matters.

Basilicata has oil – in fact, it is Europe’s biggest onshore oil field. This is at best a mixed blessing: proud locals think it may be a blessing for Italy, who gets the revenues, but it is a curse for them, as they get to deal with the environmental costs. To make this worse, arcane implementation details of the Eurozone’s fiscal compact implies that Basilicata has money in the bank from oil extraction royalties, but cannot touch it to fight Italy’s current recession.
This theme is the subject of passionate discussion in Matera and Basilicata. In this session, we would like local people and guests from all over the world to exchange notes on surviving the oil economy, hopefully figuring out together some actionable path that the citizens of Basilicata could walk to make their voice heard. Everyone is welcome; any knowledge on geology, energy, economics, policy making particularly appreciated.

Through an Empathy map, we have figured out who actually are our users of the app.
A User flow has drafted which pages should link to each other, to design call-to-actions that lead users through the right screen flow.
Then Wireframes have visually illustrated the structure of the app. They have also been useful to allow a stranger to the app to test it and to point out possible mistakes.
We are now working at the final prototype and we hope to start a new Usability testing as soon as possible.
The goal is to improve the service offered from the app and to facilitate the search for future users.

OPEN VILLAGE SESSION: Sustainability - funding and financial models
A panel curated by @Gehan | @WinniePoncelet | @Noemi

OpenVillage, 19-21 October, Brussels
You want to sustain the good work you are doing. In a resource-strained world, you need to be smarter in how you search for and acquire resources. What models are most future proof?
This session will take a broader look at how to sustain our work in a rapidly changing context. Panel members will share their expertise, followed by Open Space to give participants an opportunity to explore particularly relevant ideas or models in more detail.
This session has been developed to span all the themes at Open Village. What kind of sub topics do you want to see covered? We want your thoughts on this as well as the kind of panel members you’d love to hear from.

tools: cooperation

We hereby convene an international gathering on the theme of transformational community stewardship. We believe the ability to come together to take care of assets in an unstable context is a key skill for surviving and thriving in the future. The gathering is meant as a locus to exchange information and practical knowledge on how we can put the stock of underutilized public assets to a better use.

variety

Consequently, many such assets lie unused; some are beginning to deteriorate. They are extremely varied in nature; many are buildings, gardens, parks. Others are utilities (networks) or even digital assets (data).

viral campaigns

Hello @IFFAT-E-FARIA, it’s hard to create a viral campaign that requires even small effort to engage, unfortunately, people are really lazy.
