cool social business start-up on sharing knowledge around the globe: knowable.org. haven’t launched yet, but i’m quite interested in finding out more!
and i think there’s much common ground, i highly value information access and transparency, and believe it can fuel positive change in the world. it should also work in their favor that the greatest challenge isn’t a logistical or technical one (such as distributing knowledge) but it’s the challenge of designing a system that makes knowledge accessible in a way that people actually will find useful enough to use.
i found out about this project through the makesense gang in berlin, who will be doing a hold-up for knowable.org on saturday at impakt berlin. i was told this is a public brainstorming/workshop to support the development of the platform – kind of a “real life crowdsourcing.” looking forward to joining this saturday and learning more about makesense (great manifesto!) as well as knowable.org!
[EDIT: knowable.org is in it’s last hours of crowdfunding at indiegogo.com/knowable]
