Principles & protocols
Here we outline what we mean by ‘principles’, and how the principles of stewarding in meet.coop are to be operationalised in protocols.
Incomplete - To be extended xxx
xxx How do we understand ‘principles’?
xxx To be designed - thro
commons.hourand to be mobilised in continuous redesign of the practice of plural contributions that is meet.coop.
- A practice of design justice, continuously applied in the various commons-spaces of meet.coop.
- A practice of continuous design-of-commoning, by participating commoners. Aka democratic?
Much more hands-on, contributory, practical than that. Actual material configuring of (live, performed) contributions, and living architectures of contribution (weaves, dances, ‘oceanic’ or ‘continental’ navigations).
xxx Protocols, privileges and obligations in spaces, addressed as as commons. Assembling a system of principles from protocols of particular practices of particular kinds in particular spaces; bottom-up design rather than top-down design. xxx The principles themselves are an aesthetic commons - a combination of privileges, obligations and protocols in media and venue spaces.
xxx Principles as patterns.
Alexander, living architecture of evolved common space, thro vernacular capability and plural, multilocal contribution. Design principles. Continuous redesign. Practice of continuous redesign - commons.hour. Evolving a pattern language as a
media commons(in the handbook), that holds and presents the principles of commoning digital infrastructure to be mobilised in meet.coop.
xxx Other principles: permaculture, feminist practice, roots movements, black movements, decolonial, etc etc xxx See Social relations What’s the working relationship between (evolved, designed) 'principles’ and the value-systems, commitments and governance frames of various contributing communities?
- How difficult might this prove to be?
- How much does this depend on pluriversal sensitivity, tolerance and resilience in commons.hour, the community circle and the General Assembly (ie on skilful aesthetic practice in the contributing communities); and
- How far can it be specified in protocols of facilitation-of-contribution in venue spaces (and to a lesser extent, in media spaces, and platform spaces).
