Consumium / Consumerium - Enhancing Consumer Informedness - Kuluttajien voimaannuttamista jo vuodesta 2002
|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 ).
“Ethical consumerism is a type of consumer activism that is based on the concept of dollar voting. It is practiced through 'positive buying' in that ethical products are favoured, or 'moral boycott', that is negative purchasing and company-based purchasing.”
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.
Plans regarding the voting were (almost) 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.
In Consumerium plans as of 2013 there are various issues which need to be resolved. Oh wow 2014 went by.. so that makes it 2015 and plans to support glueing in data from and to both Wikitravel and Wikivoyage are about.
