The Spaz Project Statement of Purpose


This is something I’ve been thinking about and working on for a few weeks now. I wanted to post it here both to understand my motivation, and to hear feedback.

  1. Spaz was built for the sake of building it. It is not a means to an end. However, creating it has had several good consequences.

  2. Spaz demonstrates that making things is good, and sharing how you make them is better.

  3. Spaz is a necessary counter to closed, hidden technologies. Spaz must always be open.

  4. The value of Spaz does not lie in the judgements of others, but in the process of building it, and the enjoyment derived by those who use it.

  5. We welcome anyone who wishes to participate in the Spaz Project with open arms, as long as they understand and respect the purposes of the project.

  6. The Spaz project values clear and open communication between participants.
