#Concepts

I, Chris Mann, am a Project Creator and recreator. When your project is down in the dumps, I will energize it with meaning.

Typically, you may be familiar with job titles "Project Manager," "Project Director," "Project Management Officer" and the like. These people usually manage people and tension around a project. My center is on the project, and I do manage it around persons and constraints, and I also create (and even recreate).

You may be familiar too with the terms "Research and Development," "Inventor," "Creative Director," "Créatifs," "Product Developer," "Computer Programmer," "Business Developer," "Organizational Consultant," "Author," "Conceptor" and the like that are all synonyms for the term "Creator." I don't think about that because I create.

What do I create? You ask. I really don't know until it's created, but is will probably work and probably will add value. As in all creation, there is an element of risk, but we do try and manage that in Project Creation.

The talents I use to create projects are digital and organizational.

Pre-Inaugoration of the Makers' Lab at la Ressourcerie la Mine

Automatic translation At our meeting on September 23, we learned that the fablab (computer aided manufacturing workshop) had its first official visits on Friday September 20 from our board and employees. We did our best to make it clean and presentable. Many machines are still to be mastered. That's it, we are now "a thing"! In addition, we are in the process of drawing up a charter and a working…

Le Grand Website

Automatic Translation This is a perfectible website concept, but perhaps sufficient for a collaboration around the Grands Voisins. It is therefore a matter of creating a space with multiple shares, with potentially multiple users, with multiple uses and multiple accesses. The problem to be solved is with using a website for ourselves on our own, a useful site for ourselves with today's…

Cloud Sharing Needs You!

Files disappear! The solution? The Cloud. Cloud services save all your files in real-time ! And your computer and your cloud are always synchronised ! . Never again will your files be lost. Cloud services are not free. But hey can be cheaper : we at Mann.fr propose that we buy these services by groups of three or four users. For example, Office 365 costs 80 euros per year for one person or 10…

Time Travel

I am good at capacity planning (think of it as time accounting). It is a technique wherein I clear cost and profit centers around person-days. The technique, through iterative process, allows for the production of reliable capacity-constrained time accounts: past, present and provisional. Here is how it works: I establish a task nomenclature for all activities by everyone, as large as possible…

TaskWhy.com

TaskWhy is a simple software idea, but I found that Workflowy.com did basicly the same thing, so I let it go. A Task.How is a an indefinate verb phrase (in the form “do something” such as “buy milk”) that you provide. The software provides context by associating other Task.Hows for you in a to-do structure (in the form “to achieve something do take some intermediate step” such as “to go grocery…

Redmine Taskjuggler

Redmine Taskjuggler was a Redmine Plugin that round-tripped with Taskjuggler to produce release schedule forecasts based on capacity planning in full-information timesheets taking into account revenue effects in clearing between profit centers and cost centers. redmine_taskjuggler on Redmine PluginTaskjuggler wiki redmine_taskjuggler on GitHub

Les Grands Voisins Manifesto

Auto-translation Alternative manifesto edited by Chris This manifesto, imperfect, conceived of the hopes, the sufferings and the incomprehension of those who instilled it. The Big Neighbors were born at Saint-Vincent-de-Paul Hospital in the 14th arrondissement in Paris, between Port Royale and the Catacombs. They come from flaws in the concrete and in public policies. They are open, inclusive…

Shared Digital Resources

ResDigita is pseudo-latin for “the digital thing.” The goal here is to intelligently share electronic resources. Currently, we need to finance a pro Zoom account and two Meetup groups (English-Speaking Café Philo and Ochaika) for use of a digital room mentioned in the web page “ Video Conferencing Here for Everyone .” Please contribute here in order to keep the ResDigita resources open: https…

Video Conferencing

The goal is to provide a shared space that be comfortable, accessible and secure . After considering different alternatives, we settled on Zoom simply because it seems to work.  Other reasonable alternatives are WebEx, Google Meet and Jitsi. Criteria for choice are availability, robustness, security, accessibility, ubiquity, etc. We can change if convenient, and I am actually interested in Jitsi…

Digital Inclusion

The internet is a new opportunity to exclude marginalized populations. Our efforts here are to invite digitally marginalized populations to be able to participate in the virtual society. This is done by setting up computer rooms and giving computer classes to otherwise internet-challenged students.
