yalaChecking back in from the other side.
@fosterlynn Thank you very much. I don't have buy in yet but I am setting things up for that. I feel that there is a significant interest in this idea in Calgary and Alberta, Canada which are going through very difficult times with the drop in oil prices and the need for diversification.
Otherwise, a couple people said that the Federal ministry of Economic Development and Innovation would be interested in this. I have some interest from a tech consultancy as well working in public policy.
You're right, now that we've got the theory down, a couple friends and I are going to make a minimum viable product (MVP) of "maplesyncalpha" or the first generation of actually practicable maplesync. I see valueflows as essential: this is what I wrote of their first application in the whitepaper. I hope there will be uptake as I see it as essential:
Value Flow Model (CanEcSims)
The purpose of this is to develop a comprehensive accounting system of the actual physical throughput of our economy. What is meant by this is understanding the material flows of resources, their recipes to create commodities and products, and so forth. If we can model and map how resources are processed, we will be able to identify where sub-optimal wastages occur at the scale of the national economic system. This will help to guide policy, but more importantly, guide entrepreneurs to opportunities that might help optimize or reinvent the entire economy. This system will likely use Resource-Event-Agent (REA) Accounting, and also could be thought of as a treasure map with sponsored bounties.
yalaSorry for the confusion, pings will reach me here (in Riot) via "yala". (Simply type yala somewhere in your comment, and Riot picks it up.)
yalaTo add his GitHub social log in.
yalaWith these preparations, the next run should be final, and it's also conducted easily. So no need for rush from my side.
yalaWould you like to schedule the migration jobs, in so all eventual further events that impersonate s/o else w/o an associatable identity will be associated to you, instead of me?
How do you want valueflows cited in a scientific publication? Is there a publication about VF? Anything in particular, for citing the RDF ontology? (If you have no particular resources, I'll go with citing https://valueflo.ws)
Bill McCarthy did it like this for an upcoming American Accounting Association monograph:
ValueFlows Project. (2017). Value Flows Principles. Retrieved from Value Flows Project: https://www.valueflo.ws/introduction/principles.html
So far, though, all you can do is create resources ;-).
That's exciting though. :) Yes, please do let us know, I'd be very interested in how you've fit in with the WoN. And we do have more than one project going with requirements for offers and requests.
yala Eventually that means it would be time for a PDF whitepaper? Could that simply be a compilation of selected parts of the docs, maybe?
When publishing a release to GitHub (sic!), one can link that to zenodo.org and receives a DOI. Or we find an Open Access Journal that would accept a potentially out of band contribution.
yala There's an open CfP at the natural fit of the Journal of Peer Production until 30.07. ... http://peerproduction.net/editsuite/cfp-jopp-15-transition/
That could be an 8.000 chars peer reviewed paper, or a 2.000 chars non-peer-reviewed follow up to http://peerproduction.net/issues/issue-4-value-and-currency/invited-comments/between-copyleft-and-copyfarleft-advance-reciprocity-for-the-commons/ or alike.
