Updates on Bikechain, our 3 new course offerings for next year, the Chihuahua Innova conference, and a treasure hunt?

Proof-of-Concepts

Bikechain

Hey guys! We finally have some updates on our Proof-of-Concept (PoC) mobility data project, Bikechain.

We are almost done completing the prototype eBike. A couple more parts to add and some tests to be conducted before we can move on to Part 2.

For Part 2, after the prototype eBike is completed, we shall start working on:

  • Token Engineering: Developing an algorithm for token generation based on eBike data

  • Trial Runs: Developing and conducting trial runs by operating the prototype eBike

  • Report Draft: Drafting a first draft of our research report

Community Wireless Network

As progress continues on our research and organizational split, we are coming closer and closer to starting our Community Wireless Network (CWN) PoC in the Las Vegas, Nevada area.

Courses

We plan to offer 3 courses starting this December!

We will be offering three introductory courses this coming end of December:

  1. Introduction to Decentralized and Open Thinking

  2. Introduction to Commons-based Peer Production (CBPP)

  3. Introduction to Platform Cooperativism

The Introduction to Decentralized and Open Thinking course will cover mental models that promote decentralization and openness and how you can apply these models in different scenarios.

The Introduction to Commons-based Peer Production course will introduce the CBPP model and examples, basic primer on the commons, factors that have led to the rise of CBPP, and CBPP in the decentralized and open thinking and systems (DOTS) space.

The Introduction to Platform Cooperativism course will introduce the cooperative organizational model and platform cooperativism, and the transformative potential for platform cooperativism for emerging tech and markets.

The courses start at the end of December 2019 and you can enroll early by completing this Google Form or entering the following link into your address bar: https://forms.gle/Q9FZ8CQQnB487CAq9.

Additionally, the enrollment fee for each course is $10.00, but if you enroll for a course starting in January 2020, your enrollment fee will be discounted to $5.00.

As part of our mission to advance the DOTS space through open access materials, the first hour worth of material of each course shall be freely available to anyone.
