How to read this document and its color coding

Hello and welcome to the DisCO MOTHERSHIP GftW Deliverables and Work Planning wiki entry. This Mothership Wiki Entry takes over from the previous shared document. We've switched to the wiki for easy hyperlinking of the different sections.

(If you're color blind or have difficulty seeing some of the color distinctions, please contact COMMUNITY or STRA.DEV so we can cater to your needs wink)

Deliverable Status

There are two complementary types of statuses:

  1. General Deliverable Top-level status
  2. Specific deliverable 2nd-level status


Num 2 is always a subset of num 1. Let's look at each in turn:

1: General Deliverable Top-level status

Each of the main deliverables (extracted from the main DisCO Project Matrix) is color coded the following way.

DARK GREEN = Deliverable up to defined status/quantity

TURQUOISE = 2nd priority deliverable, dependent on time/resources

GREY BLUE = Planning, groundwork and pre-design

PEACH = Planning Only

Pink Text: Accounted as LoveWork, but part of project deliverable reporting

Green Text: Accounted as CareWork, but part of project deliverable reporting (DisCO LABs pilot development for DisCO MOTHERSHIP and Guerrilla Media Collective) [1]

This lets us know the status of the deliverable in relation to Grant for the Web. This clarifies how much attention we pay to that specific deliverable within GftW's budget and scope. Deliverable status is displayed in the headers that precede each deliverable. Here's a visual example of what that looks like:

(INSERT SCRENSHOT + ADD DESCRIPTION)

2: Specific deliverable 2nd-level status

This refers to the bullet points listed under each General Top-level deliverable. The color key tells you the progress status of each of these:

Bright Green = Deliverable COMPLETED

Pale Green = Deliverable mainly completed. Follow up tasks pending

Bright Blue = Deliverable Currently Underway

Bright Yellow = NOT STARTED/PLANNING STAGE. Needs to get underway

Bright Red = Deliverable CANCELLED from GftW (but not from the DisCO Project) Moves into next funded/project

Here is an example of that:

(INSERT SCRENSHOT + ADD DESCRIPTION)

Deliverables are listed in approximate order of priority

Timeline

The Timeline is currently being revised for 2021. Watch this space for updates


DisCO and Geeks Without Bounds Collaboration

DisCO projects for GftW

The DisCO project will continue work on the DisCO Floor and DisCO Handbook, and create other resources (see Attachment 2). We also expect the DisCO F. to be launched concurrently in early 2021. There will be ongoing DisCO RESEARCH, communications and pilot development work performed outside the scope of this proposal.

GWOB

Continued software improvements; Conference talks about software (TECHnical) and experience (human); DisCO Deck may continue in GWOB accelerator for up to 2 years, as needed.




Deliverables

(Sourced from DMMSS (DisCO Matrix Mapping Spreadsheet). See also Grant for the Web Reader, which contains the DisCO.coop and GWOB applications combined)

IMPORTANT NOTE

What follows is a very granular list. The truth is that most of these components overlap. Ie: completing parts of a deliverable listed in one section, will also advance others. This is a linear masterlist to allow us to:

  1. Plan work
  2. Allocate the budget
  3. Make a Gantt Chart
  4. Organize deliverables according to working circles
    1. This involves converting as many of these tasks into clearly labelled and scheduled Trello cards and checklists
  5. Ensure meeting GftW deliverables


This documents some early distinctions about stages of development which need to be clarified further. Many of these components will reach an demo or alpha stage by the end of GftW (think V0.5 or V1.0 but all of them will require further development (toward permanent Beta) through other grants, etc. GftW is building the base for this future development.

We simply need to show some early prototypes to justify the grant. In real world terms this means that we get as far as the money allows, and plan for the next round (with any additional on-funded needed work tallied as LoveWork

DisCO LABS

See notes below for Committed/Livelihood and Dating/love distinctions

IMPORTANT: Grant for the Web is currently financing the Development of current "committed level" DisCO LABS (ie, DisCO MOTHERSHIP, GWOB and GMC). Read the Project Matrix description of DisCO LABS, and its sections on DisCO LABS Co-development and the list of Committed/Dating/Casual level LABS. Development for Dating DisCO LABS and conversations/planning with Casual DisCO Labs are tallied as Lovework for now.

  • Committed DisCO LABS
    • DisCO MOTHERSHIP
    • GWOB DisCO Node
    • Guerrilla Media Collective


Possible Partner Involvement (TBD)

  • Research Partners





Research Lines

Financed by research partners. See notes below

IMPORTANT: The Research Circle and Research in general is not covered by GftW Funding. Therefore any research work done in-group/within the DisCO MOTHERSHIP is considered as Lovework. As there is constant interest in DisCO research from the partners below, any papers published on DisCO between November 2020 and May 2021 can be included as part of project deliverables.

  • Distributed Cooperativism in action
  • Designing whole-community governance
  • Intra DisCO value flows
  • Legal frameworks (on-chain and off)
  • Feminist economic theory and practice
  • Commons-oriented, feminist critique of DAOs

Events and Outreach

See notes below

We had an initial 20,000 USD allocation for Travel/Conferences costs, hoping for post-covid AfterTimes. Realistically, the GftW team told us to strike it off the budget. We offered repurposing it for staff salaries and online events (10,000 USD). See the Creative Catalyst Budget here (tab 1 is the original budget, tab 2 the updated one). The "Live online events and materials" budget line will be done in-house (Sofía, Bronagh, Felipe, Stacco etc) which gives us maximum flexibility to repurpose it as staff salaries. The Foundational Tech budget also has 500 USD set aside for events/virtual conferences.

  1. As this is a work deliverables and planning doc, a lot of the Carework is not being visibilised or listed as bullet points. Most of it is reflected in Trello though. Carework threads through and enables all of these tasks.
  2. Read this if you're not familiar with TRLs
  3. More info on Alpha, Beta etc status for software here.
  4. Manuals for other [name]disco.coop platforms will be part of future non GftW DisCO Project deliverables
  5. Web Monetization. Find out more here.
  6. From GftW Application: "We will use the Creative Catalyst Grant for large scale community activation around DisCOs providing:
    • 1-First iteration of DisCO Floor: an interactive and highly accessible educational platform with resources and legal tools to build DisCOs worldwide. DisCO Floor will have a similar front-end design and explicit bridges to the DisCO Deck platform built by Value Flows. Featuring an interactive learning journey, governance model builder, and detailed examples of how each DisCO provides different governance solutions to common situations, DisCO Floor is a knowledge commons designed to expand into the future through user collaboration. Building on our experience with primer.commonstransition.org, the design will be highly approachable, colourful and intuitive.
    • 2-Electronic, downloadable DisCO Handbook, filled with practical examples from DisCO pilots, providing a complementary linear and narrative approach to the educational materials contained in the DisCO Deck.
    • 3-Ongoing community outreach through webinars or events (post Covid-19 restrictions), as well as multilingual narrative and audiovisual materials.
    • 4-Participatory action research on DisCO's economic, human and legal aspects (independently financed by our research partners and outside the budget of this proposal).
    These efforts will lead towards the creation of a non-profit DisCO Foundation following established FLOSS business model and licensing practices."
