Consumerium / Consumium - Enhancing consumer informedness


Welcome, newcomers to Consumerium Development Wiki, where fair trade, political consumerism, Free, Libre and Open Source Software ( FLOSS ), moral purchasing, consumer activism and shareholder activism trends, all essential to our philosophy, are being pieced together into what we call moral purchasing power by the means of providing consumers means and opportunity to consort by enabling services ( which are provided on infrastructure that consumes resources and is built with technologies ).

Consumerium itself is a not-for-profit effort to enable display of product information to consumers and feedback to the producers to enhance the consumer experience and to keep this planet as hospitable as possible.

We are collaborating under the GFDL license, to design a healthy buying infrastructure. We are identifying hardware requirements for storage, transport and display of varying levels of product information to consumers and feedback to producers at the point of purchase to enhance the consumer experience, advance product development and to keep this planet as hospitable as possible.


In Consumerium plans as of 2013 there are various issues which need to be resolved

Plans regarding the voting were finished in December 2012. Voting results ( obs. plural ), reviews, feedback and links and linked data and other information are the five key components of a view on a business.

Facts and numbers for calculating most of the Consumerium:Metrics ( from 2008-2010 ) are available from 2 sources - DBpedia and Wikidata for tens of thousands of businesses.

A couple of ways to start exploring Consumerium are the Brief introduction and Consumerium:FAQ articles. There are also other essential projects, such as Simple English Wikipedia (.org) and Sourcewatch.org and many others that we hope to introduce you to.

There are currently 1,147 articles of Consumerium development related work.

Managers wondering about the impact of this on their business should read The Executive Summary page.
