PLAN is a Community Operating System that will allow people with few resources to conduct real-time logistical planning, and coordinate with high reliability, persistence, and privacy. PLAN incorporates the following design characteristics: Data Redundancy; Total Data Privacy; Total Data Ownership; Community Centric Permissions; Offline First Operation; Native Spatial UX; Spatial UX App Support; Hardware Agnostic; Pluggable; Extensible; Gatekeeperless; Distributed Infrastructure

Hopes & Dreams
Beyond DWeb, we envision PLAN being the world's first truly open, architecturally distributed, and spatially immersive operating system. At PLAN Systems, we believe people profoundly benefit from having the tools to connect with each other, manage common resources, and to engage in meaningful projects. PLAN is a spatial collaboration and communication tool for teams, groups, and organizations, with a highly adaptable interface -- we dream of a future where integrated productivity tools allow communities to organize, visualize their environment, and be digitally self-reliant.

Anyone can participate, but engineers and designers are our target audience. Some demo exhibit preparation is required. We will be setting up demo workstations running PLAN that can be used to demonstrate and perform live demos. We will facilitate the installation of PLAN on other workstations so that they can be “invited” into the community we create. Any information that event coordinators or other projects would like to share about the different projects attending, or the details about the specific area could be pre-populated, and refined on site.

Why participate
Why participate: The best reason to get involved is to participate in building the community centric operating system that we all want and deserve. We will lead engineering and security talks, lead PLAN hackathons to interested participants, and invite participants to ask the toughest questions about PLAN during the entire event period. We envision participants using a spatial map to orient themselves to the camp area, be able to discover information about other participant projects, and conduct realtime communications on site. Interactivity envisioned: “Offline First” location based messaging, discover information about the space and participant projects, pin a note to a community message board, add yourself to a contacts map.

Session Rundown
We will be providing a demonstration of the PLAN Data Model in action, discussing key design pillars of the architecture, channel adapter protocols, as well as presenting the latest development progress in Unity 3D. Discussion will be geared towards facilitating collaboration, engineering, and design sessions to create an interactive, geospatial map of the event space. Participants can add information about their project into the Dweb PLAN community repo or will be able to experience navigating the community on their own.as development time permits. Collab Goals: By the end of the collab, participants to be able to visually explore and interact with the event space through a 3D digital map experienced though PLAN and DWeb contributors. PLAN is an open source software platform being developed for communities and organizations to securely collaborate and become digitally self-reliant. We have enough material for multiple engaging 2-4 hour sessions.
