Platform for open-process cooperation
gComm(o)ns is a Free Software platform enabling more open-process participation and cooperation through fine-grained control over objects and processes.
Open Data (openness of the sources) and Open Access are not enough, they are necessary prerequisites.
Openness of the entire work process ought to be the default in majority of instances (medical record is example of an exception).
Closures, including closed processes, are historically put in place to create and protect private property, political privilege and power over few over many.
Software and organizational changes are required to open up processes. Fine-grained control over objects and processes in cooperation is necessary to have the confidence in the desired effects of opening up. This in turn enables open-process cooperation.
Participation through open processes requires time.
