A product studio building tools for open work and the distributed web.
Open teams with diverse backgrounds tend to create more value for the world than teams working in isolation. Open source software is a prime example. Our hope for open work is to encourage open collaboration of all types — from community designed parks to de-carbonizing our economy.
Open work is already happening, but we see opportunities to help it grow. Our long term goal is to create tools that:
- ↝ help people share and organize their work publicly and facilitate as much work-reuse as possible
- ↝ allow us to own the work we do individually and collectively, beyond the life of a single app or company
- ↝ incentivize sharing work publicly and open contributions, instead of signing non-competes and confidentiality agreements
Peer-to-peer technologies will eventually allow us to build sustainable governance, compensation, and own-your-own data models for open work that are not achievable with centralized tech stacks. Right now we're working with teams like Autark, 3Box, and Aragon to build tools to make peer-to-peer technologies usable for everyone.
