    "The open money manifesto, first published in the previous edition of Kohkoku, declares that money problems can be easily fixed by using our own moneys. Any community, network, and association can have its own money simply by providing a set of accounts through which members can record their trades. Eventually, almost all communities will use their own money. It's just a question of time and a matter of design. A society that does this will eliminate the problems associated with lack of money. Imagine a world without poverty, homelessness, unemployment and exploitation - a world where there is always enough money to meet all our needs. Such a world is not only possible, but also probable. In the last Kohkoku we wrote about memes, self-replicating elements of culture, passed on by imitation. Society will transform itself as the open money meme connects with open minds, who in turn propagate the idea throughout the culture. In this way, from one to some, from some to many, from many to millions, like the imaginal cells that turn caterpillar to butterfly, transformation will happen. In this issue of the magazine we provide a simple game to explore these ideas and set the stage for further development. "

    "After the first read-through of the white-paper, I noticed in the section "the-libra-currency-and-reserve" and others parts of the white paper that Libra doesn't respect some of the basics of an Open (Libre) and Free Monetary System."

  •  
    "acebook has finally revealed the details of its cryptocurrency, Libra, which will let you buy things or send money to people with nearly zero fees. You'll pseudonymously buy or cash out your Libra online or at local exchange points like grocery stores, and spend it using interoperable third-party wallet apps or Facebook's own Calibra wallet that will be built into WhatsApp, Messenger and its own app. Today Facebook released its white paper explaining Libra and its testnet for working out the kinks of its blockchain system before a public launch in the first half of 2020."

OpenAPS.org - #WeAreNotWaiting to reduce the burden of Type 1 diabetes - 0 views

  •  
    "The Open Artificial Pancreas System project (#OpenAPS) is an open and transparent effort to make safe and effective basic Artificial Pancreas System (APS) technology widely available to more quickly improve and save as many lives as possible and reduce the burden of Type 1 diabetes. OpenAPS means basic overnight closed loop APS technology is more widely available to anyone with compatible medical devices who is willing to build their own system. We believe that we can make safe and effective APS technology available more quickly, to more people, rather than just waiting for current APS efforts to complete clinical trials and be FDA-approved and commercialized through traditional processes. And in the process, we believe we can engage the untapped potential of dozens or possibly hundreds of patient innovators and independent researchers and also make APS technology available to hundreds or thousands of people willing to participate as subjects in clinical trials."

'Looping' Created an Underground Insulin-Pump Market - The Atlantic - 0 views

  •  
    "They shared this code online as OpenAPS, and "looping," as it's called, began to catch on. Instead of micromanaging their blood sugar, people with diabetes could offload that work to an algorithm. In addition to OpenAPS, another system called Loop is now available. Dozens, then hundreds, and now thousands of people are experimenting with DIY artificial-pancreas systems-none of which the Food and Drug Administration has officially approved. And they've had to track down discontinued Medtronic pumps. It can sometimes take months to find one."

The Key Themes of Collaboration - The Open Co-op - 0 views

  •  
    "Truly effective, synergistic, collaboration is an elusive beast at the best of times and the idea of making it work at scale, for decentralised projects and organisations, is possibly the essential challenge of our times. If we want to work out how to work together more effectively, to build an equitable and abundant world for all, it seems important to recognise, what hinders collaboration, to identify great examples of effective collaboration and to at least attempt to identify if there are any key themes which we can build on and incorporate into our work."

(5) Internet ou la révolution du partage | ARTE - YouTube - 1 views

  •  
    "Depuis la généralisation d'Internet dans tous les domaines de la société, la problématique des logiciels propriétaires, opposés aux logiciels libres, est devenue cruciale, quoiqu'encore ignorée par la grande majorité des utilisateurs. Par définition, le logiciel libre peut être exploité, amélioré et distribué par tous. Or, la plupart des logiciels auxquels nous recourons quotidiennement sont dit "propriétaires" : leur code source appartient à de grandes entreprises, qui en tirent des bénéfices conséquents. Les résistants de l'open source y voient ainsi un enjeu philosophique autant qu'un choix de société : les nouvelles technologies devraient être contrôlées par leurs utilisateurs, plutôt que de limiter leur liberté à leur trouver des alternatives."

    "Promise Tracker is a citizen-monitoring platform designed to help communities track issues they care about and use that information to advocate for change with local government, institutions, or the press. More than a data collection platform, Promise Tracker is a civic process designed to gather groups of citizens to discuss critical issues in their communities, collect actionable information to better understand those issues, and engage in dialogue with local actors in order to develop solutions."

About the Data - Mapping Police Violence - 0 views

  •  
    Law enforcement agencies across the country have failed to provide us with even basic information about the lives they have taken. And while the recently signed Death in Custody Reporting Act mandates this data be reported, its unclear whether police departments will actually comply with this mandate and, even if they do decide to report this information, it could be several years before the data is fully collected, compiled and made public. We cannot wait to know the true scale of police violence against our communities. And in a country where at least three people are killed by police every day, we cannot wait for police departments to provide us with these answers. The maps and charts on this site aim to provide us with the answers we need. They include information on 1,131 known police killings - including 1,067 arrest-related deaths (according to Bureau of Justice Statistics definitions) as well as 64 unintentional, off-duty and/or in-custody deaths - that occurred in 2014. They also include information on 1,080 police killings in 2013, 1,131 in 2015, 1,129 police killings in 2016 and 1,147 killings in 2017. 93 percent of the killings in our database occurred while a police officer was acting in a law enforcement capacity. Importantly, these data do not include killings by vigilantes or security guards who are not off-duty police officers.

Four problems for news and democracy - Trust, Media and Democracy - Medium - 0 views

  •  
    Having a clearer shape of a problem is not the same thing as having solutions. It's important if only so we don't collapse in the face of a task that often seems insurmountable: making sense of how the current media environment prepares citizens to be effective civic actors. I'm hoping that naming and framing these problems can make the task easier for my friends on the Knight commission and everyone wrestling with this challenging tangle of problems.
