Could there be a git repository related to this DNA so that mutations could happen via forks and pull requests?
And I replied:
Hi @thierrymarianne - That sounds like an interesting idea… we’re you thinking the git repository would be for the “organisations collaborative DNA” i.e. each org submits their Purpose, Scope tags and RSS to a repository, or that the general idea could be on git somehow…?
I love the idea that it could be forked and evolve…
Mainly I’m wondering whether it would require Orgs to publish their “Collaborative DNA pages” in a specific way / format, or whether a clever spider would be able to pick up and pull out the Purpose, Scope tags and RSS feed if, for example, those titles were simply H tags, with the variables directly after them…?
I guess it would be easier to test the visualisation (murmurations) aspect if Orgs added the data to a centralized database (at least to start with) but I like the idea of it being completely distributed and that Orgs only need to add a very simple page to their own site. But then how would they make other related orgs aware they had done so…?
