|2011||18||9 active affiliates by the end of the year||Linear growth, building economic potential, building the infrastructure, starting to communicate about SENSORICA||FINANCIAL|
All 3 initial active affiliate have very little financial capital. They are supported by part-time jobs, unemployment insurance, and family.
All 3 initial active affiliates have very little material assets dedicated for R&D. They find ways to make very simple proof-of-concept experiments to advance work on the Mosquito prototype, which is the seed value of SENSORICA. They use their own computers and office supplies. No one has a car. Philippe joins SENSORICA in Sept. and shares equipment.
No dedicated space for activities, work from home, meet for R&D activities in "work parties", meet in public places. Philippe joins SENSORICA in Sept. and shares his lab.
|INNOVATION AND LEARNING|
The 3 initial active affiliates with complementary skills (physics, chemistry and biology) working on the core technology and on the business aspects. Frederique joins in Jun, bringing expertese in optics and electronics. 4-5 others joined and collaborated with Tibi on the value network model: Seb, Steve, Bayle, Kurt,...
The 3 initial affiliates brought with them complementary social assets. Tibi was connected to the p2p world and had worked at McGill for 2 years already. Ivan was connected in the field of physiology, which is the first market for the Mosquito. Francois was connected to the local business world, after he finished his MBA at HEC. Tibi worked hard to spread the OVN model and SENSORICA through social media. Francois worked hard to spead Tactus and our Mosquito sensor in the local business community - mostly the local CDEC, advizor from HEC, ... Ivan cimented important relations within the field of physiology (first market for the Mosquito): Sabah, Anne-Marie, Danialou, which later lead to Philippe. Steve in Ohio worked hard to apply the OVN model to food production and distribution, to apply it to local food systems. He establishes relations with Ohio state University. Tibi's trip to Ohio, Aug. 2011
The 3 afiliates had different identities, which created some friction at the beginning. Later, this divergence become a force of the group.
|2012||35||13 active affiliates by the end of the year||Still linear growth, building more economic potential, saturating the first version of our infrastructure and starting to design the second version, increased communication about SENSORICA to the exterior||FINANCIAL |
Some members get revenue from SENSORICA activities through Tactus: Tibi (STS $20K), Jonathan (PJE $20K), and Francois R&D credits.
Gather and buy lab furniture and equipment for the new lab at CTS. Jonathan has a car that we use sometimes. Daniel starts to be more active and uses his car.
Jonathan joins SENSORICA and offers his lab in his basement for R&D activities. April 5, we move at CTS in a small space/lab.
|INNOVATION AND LEARNING|
Jonathan joins in Feb. and brings expertise in electronics. Bob joins in August and busts infrastructure development. Daniel starts working full time on 3D modeling and product design. Maksim (academic lab, Ecole Poly.) gets ENGAGE grant with us for R&D. Fernando and Mai enter the ecosystem and contribute to the value network model. Yassine, Bill and Sean (temporarely) add more momentum to projects in electronics.
Tibi continues to spread the OVN model and SENSORICA through social media. Getting closer to p2p foundation and Michel Bauwens, trip to USA to meet Ben and Amy during summer, release of a few videos, increased online presence throgh Facebook, more videos on Youtube, ... Francois increases the (Montreal) local business network. Tactus is presented as part of an innovation network, SENSORICA. Tactus wins prizes and gets into the prestigious Fondation du maire. We meet different local businesses, mostly in robotics: Robotic, Neurotouch, Kinova, and a few specialists. Luis R. busts help for Tactus. We present at the Canadian Space Agency. Steve talks about the open value network model and about SENSORICA in Ohio, including Ohio State University.
The achivements we had in 2012 consolidated SENSORICA's identity and culture. Affiliates started to see SNESORICA more as the way to go, Tactus became a tool, an interface.
|2013||140||52 affiliates by the end of the year||Middle of the year begin exponential growth of the SENSORICA network. Need formal reputation system at beginning of 2014 (Dunber's number)||FINANCIAL |
We created a special page that explaing to every new members how to generate revenue. There is also an initiative to help new membres to rapidly find ways to become productive and to generate revenue. The goal is that by the end of 2013 more than half of active affiliates, i.e. 30, can leave confortably from their activities within the value network.
We are activelly looking for new affiliates that can share equipment. Our first projects are going to the market soon, and we are activelly looking for manufacturers to join the network and share the risk with us. At this moment we have only Frederic.
We are activelly looking for new affiliates with a lab, space for manufacturing and shipping. March, we moved into a larger lab (doubled the size). We are getting ready for an ENGAGE grant with Laval University. Our relatioship with Maksim (Polytechnique) is getting closer. Phil is continuing to share his lab and equipment (GREAT!!) providing unlimited acces to a few trusted sensoricans.
|INNOVATION AND LEARNING|
Since the beginning of the year the rate of new members has increased. Also see an increased interest from Europe. Tony, Soufiane and Vince bring in marketing skils. Fredy already demonstrated a lot of initiative in knowledge management, branding and p2p strategy.
Fredy brings in a new set of ideas as he is involved with the Mozzila foundation. Francois continues to develop the local business relations, trying to get closer to the Canadian Space Agency. Tibi continues to insure a good presence in the p2p movement. Tony is spreading the word at McGill University. Fernando will make 2 presentations on SENSORICA. Tibi, Francois and Ivan are giving talks in local business schools (UQAM and McGill) about SESORICA and the OVN model.
As our new products approach the market, sensoricans realize that they are still splitted on strategy and philosophy. New differences surface as we're facing these new chalenges. Begining of 2013 we are having interesting discussions about the degree of openness, transprency, and protection. A diverse and flexible strategy seems to emerge, a path of compromize, but also a sustainable path. The solution does not resolve our individual identity issues, but we hope that our evolutionary approach to solving this poblem (apply different approaches and see which ones perform best) will settle the debate.
|2014||1120||400 affiliates by the end of the year||Network sustainability reached in 2014 (critical mass). The SENSORICA network itself will continue its exponential growth.||FINANCIAL |
Keep the poportion, above 50% of active affiliates to be able to live off their activities in SENSORICA.
At least 5 more academic labs affiliated accross the world. At least 2 manufacturer affiliates part of the network, to support most of our production.
At least 5 more academic labs affiliated accross the world. At least 2 manufacturer affiliates part of the network, to support most of our production.
|INNOVATION AND LEARNING|
By the end of the year SENSORICA must reach its critical mass, which means that all important roles to design, produce and distribute a product, including all the support roles, are redundantly filled.
SENSORICA will open at least one lab in Europe. We need someone there to drive the initiative (Nicolas?). We have a few inhterested in France and Belgium. Grece and Spain are the two most p2p countries in Europe and no contacts yet. Hope that Fredy will pubhish in Spanish. Need someone that speeks Greek. Brasil is also very advanced in p2p economics, and we believe that our model would be easilly accepted, but we have a language barrier. Hope Fernando will publish something in Protuguese.
We need to keep diversity into the network in order to allow the network to always evolve. At the same time, we need to solve deep differences that can potentially lead to catastrophy.
|2015||5000||2000||We expect a different kind of growth to kick in, as the open value network model spreads and different independent networks coaless into super-networks, fractal structures. This growth phenomena depends on the level of infrastructure development, and on the legal infrastructure in place.||FINANCIAL |
|INNOVATION AND LEARNING|
SENSORICA starts to go super-critical as the super-value network grows and diversifies around it.
|OVN Platform Capital (platform value generation objects). Defined as the financial capital (tangible assets) and intellectual and social capitals (intangible assets) of the OVN platform.|
|Year||Tangible assets||Intangible assets|
|material resources including financial||intelectual (human and infrastructure)||social (cultural)|
|2011||No funding for infrastructure development. All the virtual infrastructure for collaboration and coordination was created by stitching together free Google modules. |
No special space was dedicated to R&D, activities were performed at home.
The 3 first active affiliates have complementary tecnical skils and fill 3 important roles in the development of the potential around the Mosquito prototype (seen as a startup - Tactus, or as a seed value for SENSORICA). Francois (bio-chemistry and business and administration MBA), Tibi (physics, optics, some progbraming, automation and integration, and p2p), Ivan (biology). This covered the technical skills for R&D and to take the "business" off the ground. Steve took the role of the "wise man". Seb, Bayle and Kurt added their skills in terms of p2p, value system, reputation, online collaboration. Marc, Piero and Eric also helped in the begining with electronics and kept SENSORICA's momentum. Frederic joined in July and brought in more expertese in photonics, optics and electronics. Philippe joined in Sept and made a huge difference, brought in new skills, new social capital, and a lab.
A lot of work was done on the OVN model, at the theoretical level. We created the collaboration platform for SENSORICA [link to wiki]. Tibi worked a lot on it with the help of Steve, Kurt, Bayle, Francois, and others. Steve was very instrumental for experimenting with project management tools [link to wiki]. Tibi, helped by Kurt, Bayle and Steve designed and creating the first version of the value accounting system [link to wiki], Francois and Ivan also helped. Seb (observer) helped a bit in the early stages. Tibi designed and implemented a prototype version of the Role system [link to wiki]. Tibi designed and implemented a prototype version of the materials management system which included purchasing, general inventory, bills of materials, spreadsheet-based [create wiki page and link to it]. The purchasing spreadsheet was used more than all the other tools. Francois and Tibi designed and implemented a prototype version of a financial system, spreadsheet-based [create wiki page and link to it] We conceptualized and advanced the design of other modules: Reputation system, Feedback System.
We explored and debated different legal forms for SESORICA, which remained an informal entity. Francois and Ivan created Tactus, a recognizable legal form (corporation), to interface with the actual system for grants, loans and for distribution/sales.
SENSORICA was seen by affiliates as an exciting experiment but very risky. Tactus was seen as a more certain way to bring the Mosquito to the market.
Mostly driven by Tibi for SENSORICA, with help from Steve and Ian. For Tactus, mostly driven by Francois. The relationship between the two entities was better defined towards the end of 2011.
For SENSORICA, mostly developed and nurtured by Tibi, with help from the larger p2p/multitude network. Steve took a big role as a strong believer and advocate of the OVN model. Ian also contributed early on. The pilosophy was not well-established for the group throughout 2011.
There was no established SENSORICA culture throughout 2011. The initial affiliates shared a culture of sharing and collaboration, which they brought with them into the team.
No formal ethical code, although the initial affiliates shared similar ethical principles.
No formal governance. Some documents on governance were created as soon as April 2011. We just agreed on general principles of sharing, open collaboration and a great degree of transparency.
No formal policies.
AGREEMENTS AND CONTRACTS
No formal agreements and/or contracts.
|2012||No serious funding for infrastructure development. The same Google infrastructure was developed and improved. |
Bayle spent 1000 on a computer.
Jonathan joined the group in Feb and filled an important gap in technical skills, electronics. This allowed us to create a Mosquito prototype that we could take on the road as demo for presentations. The prototype also made the Mosquito project more real/tangible. Yassine (June) and after Bill (Sept) joined, adding more skils in electronics and keeping SENSRICA's momentum. Daniel became full time and brought in the artistic side, product design, and modeling. End of 2012, we realized the need of sales and marketing talent. August, Bob joined SENSORICA and filled in another important gat, web development. June, Fernando gets interested in SENSORICA and brings a critical view on SENSORICA's culture and identity.
Work on the theory of the OVN model was continued, Francois got more involved. Tibi, Kurt, Steve and later Bob were very instrumental. Tibi designed and implemented a prototype version of the Dashboard, part of the feedback system [link to webpage]. Bob started work on the second version of the infrastructure with Bob’s arrival.
We worked hard to build a legal team around SENSORICA but failed to establish it. The failure can be attributed to the fact that SENSORICA had nothing much to show, and that we didn’t know what was really needed and could not communicate our needs well. We have some contacts though…
|IDENTITY: During 2012 SENSORICA's identity started to form, in part due to the success with funding and attracting a few more passionate affiliates. Towards the end of the year the SENSORICA vision dominates the Tactus vision, and the groups identity becomes more clear. |
STRATEGY: Tibi and Francois were both involved in developing SESORICA's strategy, Francois also continued work on Tactus, which becomes an important instrument for SENSORICA. At times, conflictual views emerged between the "open game" and the "classical game", mostly driven by prospects of investment/funding.
PHILOSOPHY: For SENSORICA, mostly developed and nurtured by Tibi, with help from the larger/stronger p2p/multitude network. Steve took a big role as a strong believer and advocate of the OVN model.
CULTURE: A SENSORICA culture started to become more apparent, mostly during our interaction with other groups, like Communautique. Remains a male-dominated environment. Signed release of commercial rights to the Joint-type transducer for all present and future SENSORICA members, which shows our commitment to some core values.
ETHICAL CODE: not formally established.
GOVERNANCE RULES: Some policies regarding online collaboration were established, mainly about co-edditing text and managing the shared database. The group also exchanged on individual authonomy and free initiative and by the end of 2012 this started to become the norm. Some documents on governance were further developed, see folder SENSORICA/Governance and decision making. Kurt insisted a lot about governance.
POLICIES: No formal policies
AGREEMENTS AND CONTRACTS: Tibi poposed to use email as a formal agreement. In sept 2012 the "Contribution Acknowledgement and Agreement" was eddited to respond to Bayle's 1000$ contribution. Kurt insisted a lot on the legal aspects of our relations. Signed release of commercial rights to the Joint-type transducer for all present and future SENSORICA members.
|2013||Hope to get some funding for Infrastructure development: trying with Deloitte, planning crowdfunding, exploring other academic venues. The goal is to establish some funding in 2013, to move towards sustainability of infrastructure development in 2014.||OVN-ICT INFRASTRUCTURE|
We need to: finalize the value accounting system [link to wiki], implement the value equation module [link to wiki], implement the system for income distribution at the global level and develop its legal bases, see legal infrastructure for 2013. Fredy is building a new information and knowledge management system, Tibi helps. We need to crate the Reputation system as the network approached the Dunber’s number by 2014 [link to wiki] – see also collaboration with Bayle. We need to design and implement the second Dashboard version – part of the feedback system [create wiki page and link to it]. It is also critical to build our Project Management system attatched to the value accounting. Continue development on the Interface of the OVN infrastructure. Make the infrastructure solid enough to meet the network growth projections, i.e. above Dunber’s number by 2014. We are having interesting discussions about a new communications system, which needs to be implemented in the middle of 2014, as the network approaches its critical mass. Middle of 2013 create the affiliate profile and make it truly p2p –some security concerns [link to wiki]. Theoretical work on this was started in early 2012.
LEGAL INFRASTRUCTURE: We are better defining our needs in terms of legal infrastructure, and feel ready to reengage our contacts and build a team of legal experts around SENSORICA. One idea is to create partnerships with academia. Another idea is to use our local connections to some help through the Fondation du maire for example. We are implementing a clearer strategy for openness, transparency and protection, and are codifying it. Fredy is working on licensing. We want to implement a legal basis for SENSORICA affiliates, codify contributions, which also includes financial as investment. We want to create a legal basis for income distribution, and tie that to the value accounting system and to the value equation. We want to create documentation to help active affiliates, no matter where they are on the planet, to deal with taxation issues.
|IDENTITY: At the begining of 2013 SENSORICA affiliates still see themselves as a tribe. Tibi pushed for an opening towards other communities, to see ourselves as part of a larger ecosystem, a movement. The tribal identity pevents SENSORICA to extablish channels of value exchange with other open soft- and hardware communities.|
STRATEGY: In Match 2013 we started to have important discussions about our strategy. Important topic: the level of openness, transparency and protection to apply to our projects. A diverse strategy is emerging, allowing different tactics to be applied and tested at the same time. This debate focuses mostly on the periode of growth before SENSORICA reaches critical mass. Fredy is now working hard on licensing. These tactics will be codified before the summer of 2013.
PHILOSOPHY: Progress was made towards the begining of 2013. A common philosophy is emerging and is starting to operate by making our appoaches more coherent. The OVN wiki is capturing a lot of our emerging philosphy and practices. Michel Bauwens, as a figure of authority, played an important in infusing SENSORICA with the p2p philosophy. He visited us in Nov 2012 and in March 2013.
CULTURE: The culture is taking shape as affiliates associate increasingly with the p2p movement. Important characteristics: respect, sharing, collaboration, inclusiveness, stewardship. No rituals... Still very little activities centered on culture only. Strong entrepreneurial culture, no fear of taking risks. Still male dominated.
ETHICAL CODE: No formal ethical code, although the initial affiliates shared similar ethical principles.
GOVERNANCE RULES: No formal governance yet, but our idea about them are more clear. SENSORICA needs a constitutution before it grows beyond the Dunber's number. These governance rules will be strongly connected to the value accounting system. The Reputatin system, which is not yet implemented, will play an important role in self-organization. Together with the Role system, which needs refinement, will inform decision making and self-subordination. The Reputation system, coupled to the value accounting system will also be used to sanction "bad" behaviour. Need to define exclusion rules.
POLICIES: No formal policies yet. By the end of the summer, we need to adopt a few licenses for our technolofy, and to codify openness and transparency.
AGREEMENTS AND CONTRACTS: By the end of the summer we need to formalize the status of affiliates, and to formulate exclusion rules.
|2014||Planning to have infrastructure development as a full fleged open source poject with its own steady funding.||LEGAL INFRASTRUCTURE|
- During 2014 a solid legal infrastructure needs to be put in place to support a fractal growth of the (super) value network (not only SENSORICA, but of a network of networks of which SENSORICA is a sub-network). We believe that in 2015 the value network will enter its fast global growth by integrating networks that have been popping up and developing more or less independently across the world. SENSORICA will be only one of them. This is when the value network will beging to reach economies of scale.

|EXPERT HUMAN CAPITAL|
Ivan, Tibi and Francois combined, initially had the technical and business competencies to move the Mosquito project to a stage where others could join, and where local funding agencies could see a potentiual. This was the year where we advanced R&D very little, but Francois wrote a business plan and Tibi worked on building the team and the infrastructure. Frederic and Piero filled some gaps in electronics.
In the beginning, there was not much of a pysical infrastructure. The group was small, therefore the virtual infrastructure for collaboration and coordination was not necessary. It was developed anyway early on, to prepare for the growth of SENSORICA.
|Very few events just for having fun. |
We used to have work parties, which was a way to get together to work and have fun at the same time.
The "Mosquito" project was launched first, and constituted the seed value of SENSORICA. Steve drives SENSORICA towards applications for food production and distribution, which lead to the "Sensing and sensemaking for food system" project. The "Optical fiber coating project was created in Sept 2011, and saved a lot of money in R&D for all types of force transducers since 2013.
- got a few grants: CDEC Rosemont (Transformation and Production first prize) $10,000.00; CQE Montreal (Innovation first prize) $2,500.00; ENGAGE $23,242.00 and $24,000.00; Fondation du maire $20,000.00; CQE Quebec (R&D prize) $5,000.00.
- revenue STA $20,000.00 and PJE $20,000.00
- sales services - Dilson Rassier, McGill $2,633.25 and $1,500.00
- loans FCJE and SIJ $95,000.00
- purchased more tools and equipment for R&D
- Moved into a lab at CTS in March 2012
|EXPERT HUMAN CAPITAL|
Jonathan added a lot to the initial team, which was lacking technical skills in electronics. Daniel helped with design and 3D modeling, which added value to our presentations for funding.
In 2012, the virtual infrastructure was solide enough to support a few tens of collaborators. In fact, its capacity was underused until the begining of the next year, when we started to see problems related to luck of information sharing, luck of coordination, or luck of visbility into other people's work. Most pocesses remain informal. An experimental version of the value accounting system was deployed for the Mosquito project.
The legal basis of SENSORICA and of the value accounting system was not built.
|After we moved at CTS (our first lab) we made 2 big events, one was the visit of Michel Bauwens in the begining of Nov, and the other one was the meeting with Communautique and others, later that same month. We think that they were both succesfull.||PROJECTS: |
The first version of the Mosquito was created in early 2012. Towards the end of the year it was installled and tested at Montreal Heart Institute.
A few projects in robotics were proposed, xyz piezo, tape sensor and robot finger. We explored applications and met different companies in this field to position ourselves.
We also made some progress with sensing for food systems, whici is a project of global proportions.
- planning to spend at least $30,000 in heavy equipment: 3D printer, CNC, ...
- planning a new ENGAGE with University of Laval, which could result in a close collaboration and the expansion of our capacity, access to some of their equipment: fiber pulling towers.
- probably will remain in the same lab at CTS, but we are also planning a fusion with EchoFab into a larger structure (project stalled for now, need to revive)
- planning a new ENGAGE with University of Laval, which could result in a close collaboration and the expansion of our capacity, access to their lab.
|EXPERT HUMAN CAPITAL|
At the beginning of 2013 we are finally reaching a confortable technical base for our main projects. We need a few more engineers in optics and one in mechanics to get us through the first cycle from R&D to sales and services. SENSORICA starts to look like a healthy startup.
As SENSORICA continues to grow, we feel the pressure on the virtual infrastructure. Bob and Lynn are working hard to build the second version of our value accounting system and other modules around it. Their capacity is already reached in March. We need to get more help! Efforts are made to make it easy for others to join and to participate (Github + documentation).
By the end of the year we need to implement: the value equation, the Project management system, Reputation system, the Role system, the Dashboard, ...
Begining of 2013 everyone started to complain about finding information. Fredy started working on a new info and knowledge management system, which is under testing since March.
Very early in 2013 we started to get very busy and felt that we were not able to stay on track. We realized the need to implement a project management system. Soufiane is studying our practices and culture and will inform Bob (and his eventual team) about what needs to be done.
|Organized a few nice events already when Bob was in Montreal, we all had fun! |
Mohammad's presentation at Phil's lab was an interesting event, it would be nice to repeate it.
Fredy organized Mozzila meeting at CTS and was encouraged to do so.
Tibi is planning presentations on Fridays.
Proposed the "Smartphone sensing" poject, which is related to "Sensing and sensemaking for food system" project.
The Mosquito will certainly go to market this year.
We'll also start generating revenue from robotics: Robot finger and xyz piezo micropositioner.
We'll apply for Canadian Space Agency grant (we think we have good support)
|Ecosystem capital. Defined as the human, larger infrastructure and culturel capital that benefits, which reinforce the position of SENSORICA.|
|intelectual (human, larger infrastructure)||social and cultural|
|2011||INTELLECTUAL - HUMAN|
Tibi grows a network around the Multitude Project and later links it to the p2p movement.
INFRASTRUCTURE - IT
Tibi installed different social media channels to connect SENSORICA to the world and to other communities. A conscious effort was deployed to build and maintain these connections. This system was still not well-integrated and very few SENSORICA members were involved in it [link to Social Media doc]
|Tibi works on Multitude Project in order to link SENSORICA and the value network model to a wider social movement|
20 Oct 2011, Tibi presents SENSORICA at ContactCon conference in NYC, USA. He meets with Bayle, Kurt, Michel Bauwens, George Por, and othes.
|2012||INTELLECTUAL - HUMAN|
The open value network model is discussed on different forums on p2p. A lot of new ideas are funneled into SENSORICA from these channels.
Michel Bauwens get's closer to SENSORICA. We develop more strategic relationships with academia - Mai (HEC), Fernando (HEC and McGill)
After some discussions, we separated open value network development from SENSORICA main focus on technology: Bob created the Github account for infrastructure development and Tibi created a wiki for the Open Value Network model. Tibi opened different social media channels dedicated for our activities: Facebook page, G+ SENSORICA community, G+ Open Value Networks community, Pinterest, … We started to communicate information about SENSORICA and engage others in conversations, mostly about SENSORICA’s model. [link to Social Media doc]. Our activities on Youtube increased significantly, and videos were spread on other social media platforms. We also used other social media channels with a high concentration of individuals interested in the p2p movement. The most used were: p2p foundation, Facebook (NextEdge, a few #occupy groups), different groups in LinkedIn, a few mailing lists.
|The p2p movement coalesses around the p2p foundation, Tibi positions SENSORICA and the open value network model within this large global network. The Multitude Project facilitates this integration. |
Summer Tibi goes in a tour in Vermount where he meets with Amy and Ben. Ben makes a video about the open value network model.
8 June 2012 Tibi presents SENSORICA and the open value network at CAMBAM McGill University. The room is filled with graduate students.
4 Nov 2012 Michel Bauwens visits Montreal and SENSORICA
Nov SENSORICA organises an event with Communautique at CTS. Other locals involved in p2p are invited as well.
|2013||INTELLECTUAL - HUMAN|
Michel Bauwens get's even more closer to SENSORICA. We develop more strategic relationships with academia: Soumaya (UQAM), Tim ()
Deploy the open value network infrastructure that can truly support fractal value networks. Actively promote the open value accounting model to create other networks. Integrate a vast communications system to have SENSORICA signal its needs and offers to the world. We are thinking about better integrating SENSORICA communications channels with social media channels.
|The open value system is known and linked to the larger p2p movement. This is acknowledged by Michel Bauwens. The p2p movement gets recognized and a culture a favorable culture starts to emerge. More and more people accross the world recognize SENSORICA because they can better understand it. |
Tibi contributes to the language, culture and practices of the larger p2p movement.
8 and 16th Feb presentations at UQAM for Soumaya's MBA class.
March - Michel Bauwens is invited at HEC by Mai
Feb 23 SENSORICA is presented at MUSE carreer fair at McGill University.
Marc 21 Tibi and Ivan pesent SENSORICA at McGill, Fernando's class of 40+ students.
Fernando will present SENSORICA at 2 conferences
Tim writing book on new economy and a chapter on SENSORICA
Possible collaboation with Deloitte on infrastructure development, if not with them with some other organization.
The value accounting system will be ready for scaling open value networks to global proportions. The Internet will be accelerating its transition from a social web to a web of p2p value creation and distribution. A new communication system designed for the fractal network will be deployed to help the p2p integrate at the global scale
|We expect in 2014 to have wide recognition of the p2p movement and of commons-based per production. The open value network model will be part of a growing new culture and its development will be greatly facilitated by the fact that more and more people will recognize it as a sustainable new economic alternative.|
