Open hardware and software repository and versioning
This page needs more refinement...
Francois and Tibi had a discussion about the open innovation [economic] game. This is a speed game, where time to market is very important. Open innovation is not just about sharing with others, but also importing, integrating, (re)mixing as much open innovation as possible. Open value networks that operate on the edge of technological development, like SENSORICA need to avoid reinventing the wheel as much as possible.
Open value networks need tools to rapidly identify open technology and to figure out how to remix it. This open technology might come from within the network or from other sources. Github is a great starting example, but we need to go beyond that. Projects don't need to live on a specific platform. The idea is to create p2p tools.
Bob call that recipe repository. See alchematter [can they contribute to the infrastructure?]
