Here’s the first draft of PermaLibre idea (to edit, download the VUE file):
About PermaLibre: The first version of the concept, design, and implementation came as a gift from Patrick Gibbs. Patrick realized that he wanted different work and he knew that he wanted to change the way that knowledge is produced, distributed, used, and re-produced. Why pay for books when the Internet exists?
Growing the Commons: When someone is commissioned by their community to create something, and the creator is paid, and the creation is released, we can get smarter together much faster. Why? The creator knows that they’ll be paid, so that’s calmer, and the community gets a creation that respects their freedom to use it and build new creations with it.
