Resources are assets that are drawn on by an individual or groups in order to function more effectively. Network-centric resources are people-powered and participatory resources that aim to maximise usage and engagement. They are developed through sharing ownership, enabling contribution and supporting collaboration.
We take inspiration from existing and established resources like Wikipedia and The Tor Project. We are learning from FabRiders' own work with MozFest, School of Data and the International Federation of the Red Cross. We are grateful for the learnings shared within this network by resource developers and include EFF's Security Education Companion, The Engine Room's Responsible Data Forum and Amnesty International's Decoders Project.
Our Online Discussion Series
Since we began the Network-Centric Resources project in the beginning of 2017, we have been struck by the ingenuity and wisdom of resource developers in how they are approaching co-creation with networks and communities. We have also heard from many resource developers that while a guide would be helpful, it would be even more helpful to have opportunities to compare notes with other resource developers. The online discussion series has been established to provide a platform to share lessons learned and talk through tough challenges.
