X.net

X.net is a group of activists specialised in several fields related to the new digital era, and the Internet Paradigm.

FcForum

The Free Culture Forum (FCForum) is an international encounter of the most relevant organizations and individuals on free culture, digital rights and access to knowledge, people engaged in reflecting on the social and economic challenges of the dissemination of culture and knowledge in the digital age. This event has been taking place in Barcelona every year since 2009, jointly with the oXcars, a free culture festival.

Wikidata

Wikidata is a free knowledge base that can be read and edited by humans and machines alike. It is for data what Wikimedia Commons is for media files: it centralizes access to and management of structured data, such as interwiki references and statistical information. Wikidata contains data in every language supported by the MediaWiki software. Wikidata is a project of the Wikimedia Foundation: a free, collaborative, multilingual, secondary database, collecting structured data to provide support for Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons, the other Wikimedia projects, and well beyond that.

Remix The Commons

Remix The Commons is an intercultural space for sharing and co-creating multimedia documents about the commons. It aims at documenting and illustrating key ideas and practices of the commons movement, including through the creative process of the project itself.

Zooniverse

The Zooniverse is now one million strong. That’s one million registered volunteers – so in fact many more people have taken part without logging in too. The Zooniverse started less than 7 years ago with the launch of Galaxy Zoo. We have since created almost 30 citizen science projects from astronomy to zoology. Some of you have been with us from the very start, some have only joined this week. Either way, we are constantly amazed by the effort that the community puts into our projects.

Red Ciudadana. Partido X

Red Ciudadana, Partido X is a political party appeared publicly in early 2013, presented online via its Twitter account (@ Partido_X). It came out from a group persons related to the Spanish 15M and from the movement of free culture and free software. This party advocates for democracy 4.0: forms of direct democracy by the Internet, wikigovernement, binding referendums, popular Llegislative initiatives, involvement of citizens in the drafting of laws, transparency.

SETI@home

SETI@home ("SETI at home") is an Internet-based public volunteer computing project employing the BOINC software platform, hosted by the Space Sciences Laboratory, at the University of California, Berkeley, in the United States. SETI is an acronym for the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence. Its purpose is to analyze radio signals, searching for signs of extra terrestrial intelligence, and is one of many activities undertaken as part of SETI. Everyone can participate by running a free program that downloads and analyzes radio telescope data obtained.

Open Source Ecology

By weaving open source permacultural and technological cycles together, we intend to provide basic human needs while being good stewards of the land, using resources sustainably, and pursuing right livelihood. With the gift of openly shared information, we can produce industrial products locally using open source design and digital fabrication. This frees us from the need to participate in the wasteful resource flows of the larger economy by letting us produce our own materials and components for the technologies we use.

Openspending

OpenSpending is about Mapping the Money. The aim is to help track every (public) government and corporate financial transaction across the world and present it in useful and engaging forms for everyone from a schoolchild to a data geek.
