20abierta » Una empresa dentro de una comunidad
A company inside a community
Tuxbrain is dedicated to development and distribution of free ultraportable solutions, with some examples in form of picture you will get the point easier:
The more striking point of the product should be at first sight the size of this devices. But the most significant aspect is the Free adjective. Most of the products this company distribute has it specifications and internals published and available to everybody. So any entity with enough production resources is able to clone this product and the software it runs. Let's say we are in the Free Software concept but aplied to the Hardware world too.
For Tuxbrain the key word is community. Arround each of their products there is a international community moving and generating knowledge, needs, ideas, etc. Being present on this communities in a active way is an essential part for Tuxbrain, becouse there is the knowledge that allows the company provide the better service and what is also relevant is to being involved with a whole users base that make intensive use of this kind of devices. But Tuxbrain can stand only as "watcher only" in those spaces, they provide their own knowledge and commitment to gain reputation that allows in some point ask for support of the community to solve technical issues in some of it's products or services. Also, their potential costumers are being part of that community so the reputation is double in relevance. David Reyes Samblas, de Tuxbrain, from Tuxbrain has talked to us about the meritocracy system of the communities and what are the keys to be a appreciated member of them.
To conclude, Tuxbrain wants to be an important node inside the also created communities with for a double goal: Continue the Idea of Free Knowledge and at same time offering products and service with value to society .
From Tuxbrain we were anxiously waiting the concluison this research will arrive, you just have to see abtract of the work done until now, from here thank you all to make this posible, gracias :)
