Can we take the queue from Napster to create Edster ?
|NAPSTER Model||LINUX Model||L-O-X Model (Learning-Object Exchange)|
|Community that shares||Community that shares||Community that shares|
|1 file=1 product||Parts and/or whole distribution||Hybrid: 1 file = 1 product ANDOR parts/whole|
|P2P Exchange||One system focus - consisting of many integrated inter-related parts and derivative works||Hybrid:
P2P for non-standarized data with meta-info (category, topic - target
audience - language - file format - platform - etc.
Standard for building blocks w/canonized and non-canonized exchange (Canonized=like Linux, Non-canonized=like Napster)
|Common File Format||Common Dev format||P2P
- Open but indicated (format, platform)
LOX: UTF-8 XML structure (platform independent). PICs and SOUND files referenced as separate files. (Encourage web-compliant format)
|Read-to-use as-is||Central verification, certification, of system parts ("Canonization" process)||Free-Exchange
LOX format of parts or whole (canonized and non-blessed)
|Chat with peers||Chat with peers. Add collaborative portal development|
