Sudo Room has plans, goals, and constraints. At some point, the concept of "flexible agilities" came up--the idea that Sudo Room had some qualities that made it particularly flexible.

To extend this "flexible agility" idea, and to 'flip' the concepts of the "agile" development program or "lean startup" method, here is a possible framework to characterize Sudo Room's method:

Flexible Agility for Hackerspaces

The critical aspect of this concept is to never wholly exclude possibilities, but instead, to give clear visions of the group's values.

  1. Value open, public discourses over closed, proprietary processes.
  2. Value access and transparency over exclusivity.
  3. Value present concerns over hypotheticals, but sense for visions of the future.
  4. Value safe space and non-discrimination over individuals' rightful opinions.
  5. Value community and interconnectivity over seclusion and territoriality.
  6. Value do-ocracy over bureaucracy

Other Possible value statements

  • Value participation and responsibility over consumption and passivity
  • Value heterarchy, social justice and public good over imperialism, militarism, and materialism
    • Maybe this is too precise, should be more general? I think I like the way that the three interplay poetically more than what they mean precisely ;) Wrought 05:52, 12 May 2012 (CEST)
    • think we can combine the previous two statements, and added 'heterarchy' to balance the triad ;) --Tunabananas 00:00, 16 May 2012 (CEST)
  • Value collaboration and shared resources over alienation and individual ownership (similar to #5 above)
