***The last days an interesting debate began in slack / #tc_cw_labs about governance. I think is a very interesting and important debate so I decide to create this topic and to continue building our governance starting from the achievements of Glocal Camp: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1yAkckKfe_PtlvY78E-sZX59fJZOw_Hp4vvbQpyxaXwU/edit#
@FrancescoP: hello @channel why don’t we name this channel #n_labs ? I say this because this channel is like the network of labs
@artemi_fasebase: @channel @francescopreviti @pascualpg Para mi los 5 grandes grupos deberían tener un mismo código. (Academy, labs, espacios civicos, herramientas y comunidad) y creo que este código debería ser sólo para estos 5 canales. Luego está networks (n), projects §, local circle (lc), cw para los generales y tc que nunca recuerdo que es pero supongo que tiene que ver con los labs
Here are my concerns about this topic.
Well, @artemi_fasebase was more accurate here, and I think he´s right. In fact was a thing that we were talking about last week when we were finishing the report with Glocal Camp Summary, and it´s that, in a short-medium period, all the tools that we use (slack, youtube, drive even our website) should fit with the governance that we achieved at Glocal Camp, the one that you mention @artemi_fasebase with the five “fields” surrounding CW: labs, academy, civic spaces, community and protocols/tools.
Doing that document about Glocal Camp we kind of agreed that this five things are platforms, so networks, as you artemi was saying come later. For example, Civic Spaces is a platform, Civic Factory is a network which collect all the factories and Civic Factory Fest Valencia is a project. Another example, Academy is the platform, The coordination of the 3 Civic Design Course is the network, and the Civic Design Course in spanish is a project. Another project which could be connected with academy in a long period is this ide about the Master of Civic Design. One last example could be with community. Community is the platform, all the circles together create the network, and finally we have the single circles for each city.
We discussed also that is very important to understand that each platform, network or circle are not boxes inside another box inside another box, they are, what we called in spanish “multipertenentes”, I don´t know how to translate that word, but it means that it belong to multiple “fields” and is connected with multiple things. Another example again is that the Civic Design Course belong to the network of the three Civic Design Courses and to the Academy platform, but at the same time belong to labs and it´s connect with them or with some protocols/tools or with the project Civic Factory Fest (remember the first week of CFF when we had a Civic Design course physical).
Is an interesting debate and I think is useful that we continue to build this together so please left yours concerns about this.
