This is the core graphic I created several years ago when I realized that the mainstream focus on open source software and open data was neglecting everything else. Open Source Everything is the most powerful politicl, economic, and social concept we have, in my view. We need to go “all in” on all the opens, simultaneously.
Open Source is the only approach — human or technical — that is affordable, interoperable, and scaleable. It makes no sense, for example, to worship at the altar of Open Data if this is merely feeding very large and generally predatory commercial proprietary software empires that extract licensing and maintenance fees while also mutating and migrating Application Program Interfaces (API) to block natural evalution within the Open Source Ecology.
SHORT URL THIS PAGE:
I apologize for the book not being free online in English (it is available for foreign language translation and those eversions will be free online). I accepted a publishing company and do not regret that decision because the editor, Kathy Green, cut the book in half, removed one syllable from most words, and generally added magic to the book that was beyond my means. It also put the book in bookstores via Random House.

BRING THE AUTHOR TO YOU
I would be honored to be invited to visit any group in person or via Skype. Here is my bio page, my email is at the bottom of that page.
Apart from this specific concept for uplifting humanity and moving us all forward in creating a prosperous world at peace, I am very interested in helping any individual or organization or country advance their capabilities of holistic analytics, true cost economics, and open source everything engineering.
I can also speak to any of the 98 categories in which I review non-fiction books at Amazon, and will happily engage as an individual (not as a non-profit CEO) in political discussions including what I learned from my six-week run as a candidate for the Reform Party presidential nomination in 2012.
