Dag Allemaal,

Al vrees ik dat LEDGER een nogal (extreem?) hoge 'We Fake the City' 
gehalte heeft geef ik het toch door, wellicht staat er iets interessant 
tussen.

"Fee entry and drinks" : Timeo Danaos et dona ferentes ... (klinkt 
geleerd, maar 't staat gewoon in Asterix ;-)

Veel plezier voor wie er heen mocht gaan. 'Disruption' moet ook kunnen, 
maar let wel, je loopt het risico dat Dyne Jaromil aan je kant staat ;-)

Doewie, p+2D!

Dear friends of Dyne.org,

We would like to invite you to the welcome event for the Ledger

the city of Amsterdam, to introduce 16 winning ventures of the LEDGER
project call 2019 for human-centric solutions that are purpose-driven
and socially useful. Fee entry and drinks and most importantly lots of
food for thoughts: come see the 16 winners of the LEDGER fund in 2019
and prepare for the next call in 2020! 5th of July, 16:00-19:00 at
Pakhuis de Zwijger, Amsterdam.

At the Dyne.org foundation we love to develop free and open source
software and we see our efforts as part of a community of hacktivists
and enablers. We encourage the appropriation of technology to weave
narratives of empowerment for people. We want to raise awareness on
the importance of technical sustainability; we want to enhance
people's control on how data and algorithms are developed and
condition everyone's life. We dream of a new, open and inclusive
European model for technological sovereignty.

Our culture is sharing and caring, our mission is the stewardship of
the knowledge commons: for a free world where we can all learn from
each other, take and recombine empowering elements in new
architectures and designs for the common wealth. What sometimes is
hard to get is how to divide the gains fairly, how to imagine and
implement ways that turn the economic strength of the common values
into sustainable and successful projects and ventures.

Our European observatory on Algorithmic Sovereignty reached
significant success in divulging findings and concerns of diverse
European research and development projects. The D-CENT made clear how
participatory processes can be facilitated by accessible technological
means; the DECODE project is researching societal uses for
decentralised technologies and crypto innovations; the Commonfare
project is leveraging bottom-up community projects of wealth
developments through information exchange and participatory budgeting
processes.

Now with the LEDGER European project we are raising the bar of our
agency with the opportunity to fund and mentor new teams that develop
"human-centric" solutions that are purpose-driven and socially
useful. Beneficiaries receive up to 200.000 EUR equity free to work
hard and deliver a working implementation of their ideas in 9 months.

The winners by alphabetic order are the following:

1. CoBox, Building Blocks for a Cooperative Cloud, by a team of
individuals.

2. Consento, providing data privacy powered by Humans for Humans,
by Georepublic UG.

3. Decentralized Science, a distributed Open Science publication

The event on the 5th of July is our "Welcome Bootcamp" for these
teams: the beneficiaries of the LEDGER fund will present their
projects, selected for their ethical values, quality and delivery
capacity.

You are invited to come along with colleagues, students and friends to
learn more about these projects. It can be particularly interesting
for those thinking to engage the call, since next year we will award
again 16 new teams. At this event you will have a complete overview of
the winners with focused, presentations short and to the point, to get
to know what matters best in our broad agenda.

Entry is FREE and drinks too - Dutch borrel style! If you have
questions, want to RSVP for big groups or like to meet with our
Dyne.org team before the start of the event, please mail to
info at dyne.org with subject LEDGER. We hope to see you and most
importantly wish that teams of people that are working to develop Free
and Open Source technology for ethical goals gets a growing support in
Europe.

We would love to see you there,

Ciao!
