12 Years of Working Out Loud – an overview of my repositories (#wolweek)

We are in the middle of the international Working Out Loud Week (#wolweek) which takes place from 13th to 18th of November 2017. I want to use this occasion to finish a task that’s in my task manager for a long time: “create an overview of repositories where I make my work visible”. The idea for that task came from the 2010 definition of WOL by Bryce Williams.

 

Working Out Loud = Observable Work + Narrating Your Work

 

The journey to making my work visible and talking about it began in 2005 when we at Cogneon decided to make our wiki, which was our intranet before 2005, openly accessible to anyone under a Creative Commons License. For a long time I was a member of the open source community and was convinced that open access to knowledge and content is a basic success factor for our society. From that starting point I added a lot of repositories to show my work an narrate it:

 

 

For all these repositories I made a table with a short description, the number of items and links. I think in the future I will go through the repositories an check if I can switch more licenses from proprietary to CC BY (e.g. YouTube videos).

Right now we are about to migrate a lot of content from our internal fileserver and media server to Office 365. In this process we find a lot of content (slides, conceps, images, videos) that we will publish in the future as well. Happy WOLweek!
