Open Source Ethos

In programming, open source describes a project that any person can contribute to. At Com.unity we believe society is everyone's project. Together, we can make the world a better place.

1.

"The whole is greater than the sum of its parts"

Aristotle's famous quote describes a concept the ancient greeks called synergia. Today we know this word as synergy: when people come together, new value is created in the relationships they form.

(2 + 2 = 5)

2.

Cooperation is good

Together, we can do amazing things. Humanity's greatest achievements are born not out of selfishness, but solidarity.

3.

Education, Communication, and Opportunity should be universally accessible

The growth and exchange of ideas fuels progress. We believe all people should have the ability to share with and learn from one another

4.

Society and Identity share a fundamental relationship

Society influences who you are. Culture is the collective characteristics of a group of individuals. In other words: the world makes you and you make the world.

5.

Technology can make the world a better place

"We live in a time where the most powerful tools ever imagined to investigate and probe our world are in the hands of essentially everyone."

- Neil deGrasse Tyson
