The Highest Good Network® application is an open source and free-shared web-based application for collaboration, time tracking, and objective data collection. It is designed to help organizations like One Community create and share replicable and open-source solutions for sustainable communities of the future. It is a tool inspired by the desire for simple, scalable, and flexible project and lifestyle management in a new era of mass open-source collaboration where the line between work and play is blurred.
This page discusses the Highest Good Network® with the following sections:
SUGGESTIONS | CONSULTING | MEMBERSHIP | OTHER OPTIONS
The purpose of the Highest Good Network is to provide software for internal operations and external cooperation. The end state of this program is to make the HGN software available worldwide and in support of the different countries and communities replicating the One Community sustainable village models and related components. It will function as the main means for people across the world to cooperate, collaborate, and improve sustainable ways of living across different environments.
Internally, this software gives One Community (and approved contributors) the ability to monitor its workforce, track projects and materials-use within projects, share events and track participation, track development within the educational programs, and track and collaborate during the decision-making process. Externally, the software provides a basic and public overview of the data collected and areas developing within One Community and a tool to help outside contributors build the open source library.
HGN Program Charter | HGN Phase I Project Charter
The Highest Good Network will provide the organization, sharing, and objective data gathering, comparison and collaboration structure for massive open-source projects, teams, communities and knowledge bases around the world. One Community will function as the self-sufficient teacher/demonstration-hub prototype demonstrating and sharing everything needed for others to build their own teacher/demonstration hubs, communities, villages, and even cities. The Highest Good Network will be the software used for collaboration between the various groups replicating and expanding the open source designs. It will be the foundation for city management, collaborative development, and data gathering and sharing to compare and improve all components.
There are 5 planned phases for the development of the Highest Good Network. The Project Charter for phase 1 and Phase 1 Work Breakdown Structure share the specifics of the objectives/deliverables and action items for our current phase of development. Phase 1 is complete enough for us to currently use the software for time tracking. We’re seeking help now to help finish the rest of the Phase 1 features and all of Phase 2.
The 5 phases of development (and their respective deliverables) are described in detail in the Highest Good Network Program Charter. They are:
We will complete them in the order above to provide timely access to:
The software is currently in use, so an experienced person can pretty much jump right into development. You’ll choose from a list of requested functionality and functionality/bug fixes ranging from easy to complex. Work is mostly independent and we use Slack for team help with problem solving.
The Highest Good Network software is built with React.js, Express.js, and MondgoDB. The software is live and we’re debugging it and adding new functionality. Here are the 2 main GitHub repositories and the Work Breakdown Structure:
Current trends indicate a future with more open and fluid collaboration between organizations, governments, volunteer and social groups. To facilitate and encourage this, the HGN app will offer intuitive and flexible organization of teams and projects that can easily adapt to changing conditions or requirements. The Highest Good Network will provide useful data for everything from individual benefits gained through creating a culture of fulfilled living practices, to construction time and materials tracking for infrastructure, to complete city economic, social, and physical resource use and evolution.
Q: Why don’t you use an existing project management software?
Our global goals necessitate a very specific, comprehensive, and open source tool. We have tried several of the leading project management tools and reviewed many others and nothing exists with the features we need.
Q: Are future teacher/demonstration communities, villages and cities required to use this application?
No, everything we create is open source and free-shared so people can use it (or not use it) however they want.
Q: I see Highest Good Network™ is trademarked. Will this software be trademarked or copyrighted?
No, only the name is trademarked.
