I kept meaning to make a note of this organisation, but was unsure as to where to put it ... it sort of demonstrates the problem of what happens when an ideological term such as " Open " which was once rooted in the original political theory of " The Open Conspiracy " becomes a commonplace and its original context has become commonly unknown - and yet people continue to use it in more or less the original sense : hence a once radical and innovative idea becomes taken for granted in a society which sneers at the original political theory e.g. ignorant British Democrats are forever referring to " The Public Interest " whilst simultaneously denouncing Republicanism.

( Lyndon La Rorouche's ideas are promoted by a cult-like organisation which has all of the hallmarks of a real conspiracy - and their video weirdly inverts TOC ! )

Now I guess that you may be reading this upon a computer screen obtaining the files through the internet etc ... but what you most probably do not know is that H G Wells, amongst his other attempts to promote the use of science to develop technologies that promote world peace through benefiting mankind by constructive behaviour that builds up civilisation instead of destroying it, predicted the possibility of creating a universal encyclopedia containing the most up to date knowledge and making it available to everybody who asked - simply by picking up the phone and using a directory to order a copy of any document published anywhere in the world - ever ! - to be delivered down the phone line to a device that could display it for inspection and print it out ... he imagined both the internet and the World-Wide-Web fifty years before it came into existence.

H G Wells' only resource was his imagination ( unfortunately he did fail to predict the biro - but he did posses several pencils ) and he achieved many useful things that benefited literally millions ; Lyndon La Rouche's only resource is money - and he has achieved nothing useful to anybody save to provide himself and a number of others with a fat salaries paid for by those who prefer paranoid rhetoric over productive achievement, excepting perhaps that those who donate the cash may feel good about it.

A NICE BUNCH OF QUOTATIONS FROM H G WELLS ABOUT THE OPEN CONSPIRACY - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yk3aYRSbHBU

" The Open Conspiracy " was very popular in the inter-war years, and one of its achievements was to plant the seed of what became the United Nations during the post-World War II planning period behind closed doors on the off-chance that the USA would enter the war and rescue the UK from both Fascism abroad and Socialism at home - but I wonder if H G Wells - the self-proclaimed Republican and acclaimed Socialist - imagined how that last great hope for world peace could be turned into the means to organise war more efficiently in order to make it cheaper and more effective with the added bonus of appearing to now be legitimate ?

H G WELLS TOLD A FRIEND THAT HIS EPITAPH SHOULD BE " Goddamn you all, I told you so ! " - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Xu8qfxsGL0

" The Open Conspiracy " never became an actual mass movement - one wonders whether it needed H G Wells to lead it and he simply did not have the resources to do so beyond imagining it - and in terms of an active organisation it withered away after World War II, but those who were involved in it left a political legacy which seeded many further organisations and the use of the word " Open " persisted e.g. in the " Open University " and " Open Knowledge " is yet another example of that -

WIKI DEFINITION https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_knowledge

" Open knowledge is knowledge that one is free to use, reuse, and redistribute it without legal, social or technological restriction. Open knowledge is a set of principles and methodologies related to the production and distribution of knowledge works in an open manner. Knowledge is interpreted broadly to include data, content and general information.

The concept is related to open source and the Open Knowledge Definition is directly derived from the Open Source Definition. Open knowledge can be seen as being a superset of open data, open content and libre open access with the aim of highlighting the commonalities between these different groups."

THIS WIKI PAGE INCLUDES A LIST OF ORGANISATIONS PROMOTING OPEN KNOWLEDGE INCLUDING ONE WHICH EXISTS TO DEFINE IT - ! - ?

http://opendefinition.org/od/

The Definition : A work is open if its manner of distribution satisfies the following conditions: 1 - Access ; 2 - Redistribution ; 3 - Reuse ; 4 - Absence of Technological Restriction ; 5 - Attribution ; 6 - Integrity ; 7 - No Discrimination Against Persons or Groups ; 8 - No Discrimination Against Fields of Endeavor ; 9 - Distribution of License ; 10 - License Must Not Be Specific to a Package ; 11 - License Must Not Restrict the Distribution of Other Works.

I have just been commenting on this whilst writing about The Open Data base - http://repwblic.informe.com/viewtopic.php?p=2635#2635

Any changes to - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_Knowledge - change of name from ' Open Knowledge Foundation ' - ?

Open Knowledge is a nonprofit organization that promotes open knowledge, including open content and open data. It was founded on 24 May 2004[2] in Cambridge, UK, and was named the Open Knowledge Foundation (OKF) until April 2014.[3] The organization published the Open Knowledge Definition and runs several projects, such as CKAN, the data portal software used by many governments for their open data projects, and Where Does My Money Go, a service to monitor government spending.[4][5] As well as technical tools, the organization provides advocacy[6] and licensing advice around open content issues.[7] For example, it supported the development of the Open Database Licence (ODbL) and the Open Knowledge Definition.[8]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CKAN

The Comprehensive Knowledge Archive Network (CKAN) is a web-based open source data management system for the storage and distribution of data, such as spreadsheets and the contents of databases. It is inspired by the package management capabilities common to open source operating systems like Linux, and is intended to be the "apt-get of Debian for data".[2] ... Its code base is maintained by the Open Knowledge Foundation. The system is used both as a public platform on Datahub[3] and in various government data catalogues, such as the UK's data.gov.uk,[4] the Dutch National Data Register, the United States government's Data.gov[5] and the Australian government's "Gov 2.0".[6]
South Australian state government has also joined the ranks of many jurisdictions world-wide in making government data freely available to the public on CKAN platform[7]


http://ckan.org/

CKAN is a powerful data management system that makes data accessible – by providing tools to streamline publishing, sharing, finding and using data. CKAN is aimed at data publishers (national and regional governments, companies and organizations) wanting to make their data open and available. [ LINKED TO - ]

[ Actually this is billed as an Open Data project so I will stick it on The Open Data Base thread - http://repwblic.informe.com/viewtopic.php?p=2635#2635 ]
