XO Korea/support/16 jeju team
My name is Do Young-Min 도 영민, a farmer and fisher living in the Jejudo Island in Korea (South). I and a few citizens living in near my house are participating in activities to deploy XO in Korea. Most of us are farmers, fishers, constructing workers, or housewives.
All our projects are long-term based, at least 10 years' timeline, and directrly or indirectly related to OLPC projects. See below about our activities in Korea.
The photo right hand is me and my little friends neighborhood.
We have two fixed offices, one modern building and the other being small Korean traditional house.
In fact, as our works are all web-based, and as Web is everywhere in Korea, we need no office at all. So, those houses are for our meetings and plays rather than office works.
Regardless of its coverign region, any local team of XO Korea will not have any off-line office, if possible.
I am translating various XO documents into Korean; SUGAR UI, tutorials, wiki, and others. One of the most important task of XO Jeju is to make Korean version of XO Activities.
Currently, most of the Korean pages in this wiki are translated by XO Korea Jeju Team.
I am much interested in electronic government or web-based governmental services. If current governmental services are efficiently reorganized on XO and its variations, I think about 70% of governmental labor cost shall be reduced, and the performance will be increased far much.
Anyway, I (and my fellows) have already reclassified the about 65,000 repetitive governmental functions (services) into 3,000+ core functions and are setting a framework to code (programming) those core functions via Squeak, Smalltalk, and Python.
See Governmental Content.
UNSPSC (UN Standard Product & Service Classification) is the classification of industrial activities into about 15,000 categories and about 100,000 services.
I (and my fellows) have been writing the workflow statement of each category and service for children and adults to program those on XO.
See our samples such as Open Bank and Open Exchange etc. below.
See Business Content.
XO and its variations provide a revolutionary networking or communicating capacity, mesh network.
Why not use those features to establish national-wide or even world-wide communication network, both voice and data.
With some helps from Korean researhers, I have been designing national wide mesh network, consist of XOs, School Servers (and other types of servers), XO Repeaters, Local Servers, and Country Servers.
I hope those XO network can complement (or even substitute) curren wire/wirelss communication infrastructure of Korea.
There are some project samples to show what I and my fellows are pursuing.
Two issues faced by most developing nations.
One is that, currently, most nations are composed of regional or ethnical similar groups. The second is that, capitalism is driven by profit only motives.
I think those two isstues are source of some most disastrous conflicts and struggles.
How to establish Canada-like communities on most developing nations in 5~10 years? I believe XO and ethics on XO is the answer, high technology and sound ethical standards.
eThics project is to establish world-standard constitution, civil or criminal laws shared by nations regardless of their religions, ethical origins, and residing regions.
See our Code of Ethics.
The moto of XO City is quite clear and simple;
- estalish a mechanism guaranteeing sustainable growth, so called eco-city,
- fully automated soical infra structures such as automated governmental services, banking services, and broadcastings etc. so called ubiquotous environment,
- eliminate redundant codes in cities, that is XO-style city.
Open Enterprise Architecture
OEA is a framework of programming social procedures of value production; fully automated e-Government, e-Business, e-Education etc.
OEA is based on FEA (Federal Enterprise Architecture) of the USA, but open, extended and simple;
- Open: anyone can participate in writing the architecture.
- Extended: OEA encompasses not just governmental services, but private services such as businesses also.
- Simple: OEA is set on only a few programming languages and frameworks, especially Squeak eToy and Python.
OAP: Open Accreditation Project
Day by day, the world is smaller and smaller.
The purpose of OAP is to set world standard accreditation, certification, or license framework; such as for doctors, lawyers, bachelor/master degrees, public accountant etc.
OAP is open, standard, and web-based;
- Open: anyone can participate in writing examination papers presented via web to XO screen; for example, a problem set of CPA exam you request via XO is composed of questions randomly sorted from CPA Problem Bank written by worldwide citizens.
- Standard: I am setting a standard requirement for each certification/license/accreditation usable by any nation of the world,
- Web-based: our all accreditation processes shall be done solely via the web and XO.
XO Community Project
I hope to use XO as a string linking different social sectors; families, schools, governmental authorities, businesses, and other communities.
That is XO Community or XO-based Community. It will be quite different from current communities linked by people with similar ethinical, regional, educational, and other backgrounds.
The XO mark will be used to show whether an entity (school, business, or governmental organization) is member of the XO community of any nation.
