Commons harmonization, interoperability, standards
Several people here understand that interoperability, harmonization or standardization are vital aspects of commons collaboration, both in general, and in particular in the building of IT infrastructure. We invite ourselves and other interested people to tell us about their knowledge, experience and opinions about how to the commons can be helped towards better interoperability; and to work collaboratively together, first, to explore what agreements we can come to about actions that would be helpful; and second, where possible, to coordinate taking those actions.
There are cultural and behavioural dimensions to standardization, as there are to "commoning". We are open to exploring and sharing ideas on the attitudes, values, knowledge, skills and competence of people who wish to collaborate constructively on harmonization or standardization of the commons, and how to embody those values in our processes, which need to be transparent and open.
We welcome people with less experience of standardization, to ask questions about how these topics fit in with commons transition; about what has worked or could work; and to contribute their ideas around these topics.
