This is an invitation to the Openbusiness.cc community to contribute and use the Open Business Models WikiHive. Especially those interested in the development of RevenueSharingModels, and OpenSource software development for Open business applications.
OpenBusinessModels (OBM) WikiHive is an Open Project initiated by Michigan, USA based Social Synergy inc., founded by Social Entrepreneur Sam Rose. The purpose of OpenBusinessModels WikiHive is: to explore, build, and test models and theory of the dynamics of business, and exchanges of value around Open Content, Open Source software, and Commons and Knowledge Commons based products, services, and economies. One of the core goals of OpenBusinessModelsWikiHive is to assist and enable the Passionate User. This Wiki Hive also acts as a development space for OpenBusinessModel and Open Content project proposals.The main wiki in the hive exists to is to act as a central seeding and support MotherWiki for this Wiki Hive. It is also intended to be a staging area for launching of other wikis, and a central Theory Building space, and Knowledge Commons for OpenBusinessModel(s) based around Open Content, Open Theory, Open Knowledge, Trust Metric, Open Value Network, Collective ProblemSolving, enabling the Passionate User, and more.
The general idea is to:
This is Testing Theory Through Action.
First of all, a WikiHive is:
Our wikihive is based on the OddMuse wiki engine, free and open source program that has evolved from the original WikiWikiWeb code base. In general, using a wiki can help sort through long and often confusing email exchanges, by getting everyone on the same page. We frequently use it to summarize long threaded discussions into one page that is easily digestable, and reusable.
One of our first projects is a 3D animated movie project called Extinction Level Event (XTIN), the home page and blog for the project, with storyline and example art work can be found here. Open Business Models Wiki Hive is collaborating with XTIN in creating a Revenue Sharing Model for the XTIN project. We are using a system of points that equal shares of revenue, for tasks that project participants take on and complete. Revenue will come from sales of items like posters, and the movie itself.
Currently these points are tracked in wikiCalc, an open source web based spreadsheet program created by the inventor of VisiCalc, Dan Bricklin. The project points are calculated into percentages of revenue in the spreadsheet. Then, this can be exported to PayPal's Mass Pay function, to pay all of the participants at once, each time revenue is earned.
The development of the Extinction Level Event revenue sharing model also led in part to the emergence of another project, a partnership between BarCampBank and Open Business Models WikiHive to create a tool that can automate both the paying of money in Revenue Sharing Models, and the pooling of money for sharing group expenses. Our goal is to develop an Open Source tool that can be used both for tracking and projecting expenses, pooling money/fundraising for groups, that can pay vendors and receive revenue from resellers, and that can distribute money out to project participants. A one page description can be found on the BarCampBank wiki at: P2P Money and at Opeb Business Models Wiki Hive at CoDevProposal
We are using wiki for exploring how this idea of sloganeering and a sloganeering app. might be realized/produced, manifested in
Rob did some research into participatory web projects that have Business Models.
We are working on the Business Model.
Sloganeer, full of multiple contributions from multiple contributors will have to deal with Copyright Concerns.
To produce collectively something that is productive financially, means we will have to have some ideas about Revenue Sharing.
Anyone interested is welcome to participate in Open Business Models WikiHive. Please check out Welcome Visitors and feel free to leave feedback in our discussion area. If your open business project needs a wiki, and you'd like to benefit from and add to our community and Knowledge Commons, please have a look at the front page for info about how to create a wiki in this hive.
