Hackers spinning the Dharma wheel
Questo documento e' una carta magna aperta: e' programmatico, visionario e inclusivo. Vuole proporre un piano da condividere ed e' gia' condiviso da molti. Proprio ora il nostro network ha raggiunto gli 8 anni di vita e potete immaginare come questo numero sia molto importante per noi.Se siete curiosi di sapere cosa sta succedendo per favore continuate a leggere, non vi stupiremo con effetti speciali, ma con sogni, pensieri e progetti che siamo pronti a realizzare.
Ovviamente questo testo non parla solamente di "noi": essendo un network aperto includiamo varie realta' in giro per il mondo con cui adottiamo una politica di reciproco aiuto e collaborazione. Questa collaborazione e' prevalentemente tecnica, come lo e' la nostra attivita' nello sviluppo di software libero ed open source. In fatti, aldila' della generica idea di FOSS, noi siamo spinti dai seguenti sogni, che stanno lentamente ma costantemente divenendo realta'...
Per tutto questo siamo infinitamente grati al Progetto GNU, che ci ha permesso di scoprire come ottenere conoscenza, prendere controllo dell'ambiente in cui viviamo ed anche iniziare a costruire un nuovo pianete
You are welcome to join the new wheel spin of our history.
This document is an open magna carta: programmatic, visionary and inclusive, proposing you a plan to be shared and is already shared by many.
Right now our network has become 8 years old and by now you can imagine this number is very important to us. If you are curious to know what is happening please read on, we won't fancy you with special effects, but dreams, thoughts and projects we are ready to realize.
Of course this text doesn't just talks about "us": being an open network we are including multiple contexts around the world with which we share mutual help, where our contribution is mostly technical, as in our activity in free and open source development. In fact, besides the generic idea of FOSS, we are moved by the following dreams, that are slowly but steadily becoming reality...
For all this we are infinitely grateful to the GNU project that let us discover how to get hold of knowledge, take control of the architecture we live in and even start building a new planet
The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars. (Jack Kerouac, Dharma Bums)
First let's declare who we are: after 8 years we are able to trace a common denominator among the people active in our network, interconnected by a nomadic approach to development and life.
We are young dreamers, as we often like to stir limitations and invent different models to learn, communicate, share and live than those proposed by the societies where we are caged. We have in common that we survived out of the commonplaces, we cultivated our thoughts and sharing methods, knowledge and tools, keeping them out of any box.
This is the time in our history in which we'll speak with young voices, when we are moving some crucial steps on which we'll base our architectures, hopefully mixing the inner with the outer, the Ying with the Yang.
Some of us are nomads, some settle in different places time to time, some live in the same marginal neighbourhoods of the world where they were born, some are working for multinational IT companies, some are riding bicycles all around the world, some are lecturing in schools, some are exhibiting in art galleries and some are squatting houses. And yes, probably you are one of those, or you have been in contact with us, at least once.
What we are proposing here is a new model and we finally acquired a practical vision to develop it in harmony with our different environments.
