Hi ๐Ÿ‘‹ Welcome to Boris Mann's Homepage

I'm interested in Open Source Licensing, community, co-operative models. Pooling capital and collaboration. I'm the founder of Fission. In Canada I help run the CoSocial Community Co-op. In Vancouver, I'm one of the organizers of DWebYVR. I like to cook & eat and have a FoodWiki.
