This XXIst century in democratic countries is the openness century, where each of us can be a piece of a more human system. Internet allows each of us to communicate, share and do things that change real life. Passive consumption is progressivey replaced by citizenship empowerment. Trying to launch a project is something that anyone can envision, thanks to examples given by pioneers of the emerging open society.
The fluidity in communication, information, meeting new people online, learning, sharing... has opened the way to collaborative habits, both for personal than professional activities. Working together replaces progressively the old-school "top-bottom" mindset, where only ideas of the top-hierarchical actor were taken into account.
Exploriacomm offers not only ethical practices and tools, but a modern approach, where co-creation is facilitated. Two ways of intervention are proposed to you: the classic way where you delegate your project to me, and the way of collaborativity.
Each actor of the project bought it piece of a solution found by the head of the team. Expertise and creativity was stricly separated. The result is often a product or a service imagined by persons at the top of a structure, not linked to final users. Top-bottom movement.

« Free » in « Free Software » is more than talking about the price of the software: it’s about Freedom first and foremost (although Free Softwares are often cost free).
Everybody has heard about « open source », that consists in sharing source code of softwares. But there are essential nuances between projects in this diverse and particular universe: some are truly open, and others not. « Open source » licences don’t ensure that the software is fully open. Furthermore this phrase is commercial oriented. On the contrary, developers choosing true open licences (GPL and so on) work with a social scop in mind and want to guarantee the following 4 freedoms, fundamental pillars of Free Software philosophy:
Use it as you wish
Study the code and modify, adapt it
Share the software
Share your own version of the software
These 4 Freedom are not limited to usage, furthermore Free Software thinking leads to a user-centered approach, where respect of people is the key point.
Being ethical doesn’t mean to be amateur, it’s exactly the opposite. Since late 1980s, Free Softwares are used in several parts of the computing world, and notably in professional field. IBM, Intel, RedHat, SAP... even Microsoft and Google are contributors in Free Softwares development.
Maybe you already use Free Softwares, because a lot of them have become leading alternatives to closed softwares.
