I've been thinking about this quite a bit since we went over it last week.
I think this document is a beautiful statement of our current purpose (namely the creation of Hypergraph), but I don't think this accurately represents us as Liberate Science.
Our manifesto needs to be a guiding document stating our aims as the open worker co-op that is Liberate Science. Maybe our mission won't always be to create "tools for cooperation and peer review", but that is our mission right now with this specific tool.
Some things that will never change for Liberate Science:
I think we should use this current document as a very rough first draft and start over keeping in mind the collective mission of Liberate Science as an entity with Hypergraph as a flagship product that embodies our ideals.
I agree @psobrakseaton. Perhaps this manifesto makes more sense as a Hypergraph manifesto. I think it would be difficult and strange to combine our planned efforts towards science and work into one piece. I also split them out for the business plan.
I'm considering the context of the elevator pitch, which was the context we were using during the manifesto call. I imagine the degree to which Hypergraph and Liberate Science are relevant to a particular person will likely differ quite a bit. Some will only need to know about the product to be "sold", others only the organisation, but many (most?) probably a mix. I'm wondering how that relates to the manifesto as well. Should we create two or create one that we (in conversation) skew towards one end or the other, depending on our target group?
