Brief introduction

The Totalism Co-op is a general labour association, operating since 2016. We specialize in information technology, organizational processes, applied research, and consulting.

Cooperations are established on top of common-goals alignment. Thus, they can be better for both parties - affordable, rapid, exciting, cheerful. This in turn changes the labour's accessibility, and inclusivity.

The broader Co-op's manifesto can be found here:
    → 🔗coop-manifesto.






Information Technologies


    ( BRIEF )
### possibly remove brief all together, use TOC for this

General software and Information Technology research, development and deployment.

    * full-solution specification

    * open-source software deployment
### could include list

    * development + support:
        also see → 🔗workflow, 🔗dev-index
 
    * openhardware research and "free industry" production:
        also see → 🔗openhardware

    * affordable hardware:
        → 🔗laptop

    * Quick transform dive [onsite, 2w/100h]

Every contemporary organisation, or individual, can benefit from improving their organisational processes, connected to the way they handle data. Tproduction, collaborationauthoring, collaborating, data, search & information retrieval, conceptual models, representation, machine learning, etc.

In 2 weeks... :
    * We figure out the main organisational and technical problems, and fully document them
    * Quick Fix:
        We rapidly document, specify, develop and deploy a solution to a painful problem
    * We re-align and re-sketch the internal research & development into an agreed, innovative direction
    * We concord a longer term smart data strategy


___  ___  ___  ___  ___  ___  ___  ___  

Example outcomes

#1 (Belgian software/media company):
    * fixed a broken Solr search engine instance
    * rethought their database model (conceptual clearing for future proofing, performance improvements)
    * made plans for graph database and "extended use of data"
    * made foundation for reinforced learning on example that influence search weights
    * made foundation for statistical test infrastructure
    * written up single page executive report for future tech (can be used when looking for VC)

#2 (UK open hardware project):
    * base structure and vision-setting for this "zero stage" (🔗non-shitty) startup
    * for results, see XXX🔗voxelcraft ###RECOVER !!!

### : pull labour, other fin means goes out

or, rethink docu ...

(+) would make sense as a biz plan
(-) not as an offer/presentation docu



make it a one-doc

transclude, or summarize



advertising in public space

esp for 1 on 1 mentoring





OUT: "PULL" LABOUR

### this needs to go to an internal docu
