jtnimoy - Detlab


I co-founded a project in the East Village, providing a peer-invite safe-haven for free thinking experimenters to get support to continue experimenting, and owning/controlling their own work. DET, as coined by Yoshimi Shin, stands for Design Entertainment Technology. The online system provided password protected collaborative workspaces and most importantly, an automated way for the young participants to propose ideas to potential funders from within a bubble of mutual non-disclosure. Detlab was effectively the opposite of the Creative Commons community project, but did contain a commons within its protected center. I left the project when I moved to Italy.
