Detailed notes (Optional)[edit]

  1. [A project] where guides, tutorials, "howto", 3D-printable designs, industrial methods, technical documents and patents in the public domain can be accommodated. Although these contents would be covered by Wikisource and Wikiversity, they are not focused on that subject, which has an enormous potential to transform the relations of production and work.
