Where are the limits of open communities?

Being an open organization or open community has many benefits, described countless times. Even some risks, mostly cultural, are sometimes being mentioned. But let's take a look at what questions (or risks) an open approach may carry.

  • What does being an open community actually mean?
  • How to ensure information security in an open community?
  • How to set up communication in the community that is both open and efficient?

In the ńĆesko.Digital community, we have more than 6000 members from different areas. There are volunteers, people from non-profits or public administration, representatives of various businesses, supporters, and more. Since the beginning, we have built our community on open principles in many aspects of our functioning. However, we have reached a point where we are running into the possible limits of this approach. In the past months, we have been looking for answers to (not only) the questions stated above, and I would like to share with you the insights from our journey.
