the wikiworx mission
Engage every citizen and public sector agency in opening up and consolidating the content commons and using them in making the public and private sectors better meet human needs and expectations.
The Development Circle & Dashboard of Dhampuse, Chitwan, Nepal illustrates how content pertinent to any citizen and public sector agency is embedded into a global to local public-private information facility.
Internet-based and information-centric communications2 will radically transform knowledge conversion, achieve superior content productivity and yield desired socio-economic outcomes and inclusive development: the future we want.
transparency that is constructive?
Ensuring inclusiveness, social values and engagement in public-private cooperation, as well as preventing estrangement, that is the promise that wikiworx.info will deliver.
The "clouds but little rain.."  image sums up the challenge of turning into practical, sustainable activity at the front line where people at-risk live, eat and work:
- action frameworks such as Hyogo Framework for Action (2005-2015) (Interaction Dictionary page), Education for All (Actor Atlas page), Millennium Development Goals,.. and
- the knowledge clouds that mankind has yielded.
The transparent, efficient and effective addressing of change, be it for commercial, non-profit or public-sector actors, must leverage a multi-level perspective  and social architecture in country systems:
- continuous and collaborative planning, monitoring and evaluation (utility of wikis is illustrated at Indicators for a Country-level Results Framework);
- cross-actor evidence-driven diagnosis (wikis' leverage at Collaborative Diagnostics); and
- polycentric, policy-aligned and participatory intervention design and implementation (wikis' leverage at Collaborative Therapeutics).
connected and open content as a trust factor?
In their recent book, North, Wallis and Weingast (2009)3 explain the difference between natural states and modern societies. Modern societies create open access to economic and political organizations, and by doing so they foster political and economic competition, and development.
In the modern society, the balance between open access resources and private property is a subtle one. For knowledge resources, this balance seems to be least understood. Also claims on land, sea and its use are a contentious area.
Vagueness regarding the claims on resources, be it power, land, knowledge, content or material, induces individual risk considerations that harm mutual trust and hinder development.
For what concerns knowledge resources, there is a recent WIPO study: Scoping Study on Copyright and Related Rights and the Public Domain.
Content on public sector organisations, and content that is no longer protected by copyright is part of the content commons.
the wikiworx.info proposition
The sustainable maintenance of the content commons is a collective responsibility.
In the case of the vast content commons, the lack of systematization feeds poor awareness, slow accumulation, under-harvesting both in development initiatives, and in the rich countries.
The unequal access to content commons sustained by entrenched practices feeds estrangement between individuals and institutions, and indeed, it is a factor contributing to violence.
It also feeds wasteful debate, opportunistic publishing, draining those in need of scarce knowledge resources as they seek knowledge and content that is actionable in their livelihoods.
Systematized wikis will enable us to make the public-private relationship yield more rain and peace again, locally and globally.
Your voluntary engagement with wikiworx.info wikis can serve these purposes
which will be instrumental in delivering your contribution to sustainable, equitable and capable public-private value constellations.
