The open coop
The Open Co-op was founded in 2004 with the purpose of “building a world-wide community of individuals and organisations committed to the creation of a collaborative, sustainable economy”.
The idea was to help people collaborate and co-operate on a global scale by using a new software platform which we called PlaNet. You can see what we thought this might have looked like from the screenshots of PlaNet we developed in 2004.
We also developed the following cartoon story to explain how PlaNet might benefit members of The Open Co-op. Again the cartoon and the story was developed in 2004, but was is set in 2010.
