openMÁNI (pronounced [openˈmɑːne]) is a small, non-profit organization with an open source development model.
The goal is to establish a sourceware* house that focuses solely on building open products. The funding will stem from clients donating towards specific open source projects that they want to support, where they can't provide the manpower themselves – or does not have the right knowledge - to do so. If openMÁNI can't provide this support from in-house resources, it will find and pull the right resources from freelance communities.
openMÁNI will also contribute to custom projects owned by clients, as long as they follow the criteria of The Open Source Definition.
Clients will receive monthly reports on where their funds have been spent. 15% will always go to openMÁNIs in-house projects; Máni (Hardware Description Language) and Luna (Field-Programmable Gate Array).More
Open Logic from the ground up.
Open Logic means more than sharing the Logic with others. It is a philosophical architecture that branches into metaphysics - and further into ontological computer science.
The big words aside, this means that openMÁNI plan and builds systems after a general structure. This general structure focuses on representing the natural state of things in other abstractions and concepts to navigate complexities in hardware and software. It stems from Mereometa, which was born out of the conceptual think tank, Delirium, that presented the concept of 'the open road of nature'.
For openMÁNI, this means it will represent the parallelistic-, nondeterministic- and mutualistic nature of electronics in all the parts that are involved in building a logical system. This is called Open Logic by openMÁNI.More
*sourceware referes to mechanical drawings, schematics, lists of materials, PCB layout data, HDL source code and integrated circuit layout data, in addition to the software that drives the hardware.
