Creative Stimulus Openverse is a tool that allows openly licensed and public domain works to be discovered and used by everyone.

Openverse searches across more than 300 million images from open APIs and the Common Crawl dataset. It goes beyond simple search to aggregate results across multiple public repositories into a single catalog, and facilitates reuse through features like machine-generated tags and one-click attribution.

They plan to add additional media types such as open texts and 3D models, with the ultimate goal of providing access to the estimated 2.5 billion CC licensed and public domain works on the web. All of their code is open source (Openverse frontend, Openverse API, Openverse Catalog) and welcome community contribution.

Community Thrivability

In 2004 (a long time ago), Imaginify noticed something . . .
on the horizon . . . Open Source Ecology!

Now, Marcin Jakubowski is finally featured on TED in 2011, "Open-sourced blueprints for civilization."

One day at a time . . . imagine if i . . . read the good news : )

Two featured open source artisans on Imaginify, The Graffiti Research Lab and MM2+3 collaborator Scott Draves are now featured in the Museum of Modern Art's "Design and the Elastic Mind" (2008) curated by Paola Antonelli and Patricia Juncosa Vecchierini. "Over the past twenty-five years, people have weathered dramatic changes in their experience of time, space, matter, and identity. Individuals cope daily with a multitude of changes in scale and pace... The exhibition highlights designers’ ability to grasp momentous changes in technology, science, and history..."

Awareness Research "More and more practitioners are seeing the past-present divide is not something that's absolutely critical to the definition of what archaeology is... Many are beginning to understand archaeology more as a wider sensibility about how humans live with their material environments."
- Christopher Witmore, Landscape Archaeologist & Post-doctoral Research Associate, Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World, Brown University from "Writing on the Walls" by Samir S. Patel, Archeology [Magazine], July/August 2007

"A project devoted to the study of graffiti-covered walls as they change over time."

"Archaeological sensibility" ? " resonants with the notion... that foregoes defining the discipline upon subject matter criteria ('the remote past') and instead emphasizes what is unique to how archaeology understands our complex relationships to things. Attention to minutiae of the everyday; detailed documentation of change through time; the processes behind the accretion of an archaeological trace; the individual and creative acts of even 'marginalized' groups. This broader and bolder view of what is unique to archaeology takes action and practice over etymology and definition to contribute a specialized perspective to deep time and modern material practices."

Seeding Ground
Holistic Options for Planet Earth Sustainability
is the only ecological design conference
developed and managed by students...

working to promote the deeper understanding and
broader application of sustainable design principles.

"We live on a water planet.
Its complex properties have been inspirational
for science and art since time immemorial.
As water sculpts our physical landscape,
it manifests energy to form civilizations or erode them.

Its power is shadowed by continuing degradation
and scarcity throughout the world.
As designers, we are called to a confluence to
understand our interdependence and connection to water."

"an outdoor hacker conference/event took place on a large event-campground. New communities bordering common themes which loosely defined as 'hacker issues.' "We feel it is very important for people from different fields dealing with one or more of these issues to meet at larger events. We would also like to introduce new topics and forge new links between various communities. We haven't even kept count of the interesting things that happened, both on- andoffline, simply because the right people met at one of these events.

"The novel idea that there are an infinite number of time dimensions in the Universe revolutionizes gravitational theory and much of modern science with it."
