ShiftSpace provides a transparent social layer above any website. It is an
open source (and free software) platform that enables users to comment, add
to, and modify websites. ShiftSpace allows users to experience the web as a
continuous public space rather than a collection of isolated and
privately-controlled islands. Through ShiftSpace artists, developers, poets,
activists and others can freely meet, play, create art, debate protest and
enjoy the full potential of their online freedom.

OPENSTUDIO is web + art + community + economics. It is an open ended
experiment that couples a very simple drawing tool with an economy of
artists, curators, collectors, dealers and viewers. Members can create and
modify drawings, set prices and licenses, exchange and exhibit work, view
financial records, and commission one another. Grounded in economic reality,
OPENSTUDIO is a declaration of several ideals: transparency, community, and
cooperation. It asserts that through collaborative effort, creativity and
intelligence can bring about positive change.
