Open Source Society

One of the themes of this blog is how the principles behind open source can be applied to other domains. Here's someone with the same idea:

Just say the words quietly to yourself: open…source….society…. A society where the inner workings of the government, the economy, every aspect of everyday life, are placed under the spotlight for every citizen to see, examine, and have an impact on.

These are my goals: to present ways you can improve your own life and the lives of your friends and family through the benefits of the open source movement; to present ways you can give back to the movement through your own ideas, labor, or financial support; to present ways you can have a positive impact on other aspects of your life completely unrelated to technology through the use of an open source philosophy; to create a movement hellbent on remaking the world into a more cooperative, friendly, honest, and above all equitable place to live, work, and play.

Thrilled to have found you...
Synchronicity :)
I have just posted a new blog site to explore the same theme, in the context of a documentary (which will be open source, itself). I will be posting weekly to share progress and clips.
I'd love to share ideas... form community, collaborate. I am also planning to form Local, Regional, National and International discussion groups.
If you'd like to review the working outline and/or contribute thoughts ideas, please let me know.
Cheers,
Naiya

That's great, but I was just quoting what's happening here:
