   abstract      = "Traditionally business plans have been highly confidential and quite limited in

audience. The business plan itself is generally regarded as secret. However the emergence of free software and open source has opened the model and made the notion of an open business plan possible. An open business plan is a business plan with unlimited audience. The business plan is typically web published and made available to all. In the free software and open source business model, trade secrets, copyright and patents can no longer be used as effective locking mechanisms to provide sustainable advantages to a particular business and therefore a secret business plan is less relevant in those models. While the origin of the open business plan model is in the free software and Libre Services arena, the concept is likely applicable to other domains. In theory, a business plan has many uses and purposes. As a strategic plan it gives the organization its direction, defines priorities, guides allocation of resources, defines goals, objectives, processes and strategies; and identifies and focuses the business on specific markets and revenue sources. In practice most business plans are none of the above. Instead they are purely a tool for fundraising. The dotCon era (late 1990s) demonstrated how business plans can become an agreement document between entrepreneurs and Venture Capitalists on how to engage in spin and flip and pump and dump activities. That makes the requirement for the business plan being secret even stronger. In what we believe is a first in the history of business practice, we are publishing our business model in the form of an Open Business Plan. The plan is freely available on our website to be read by anyone. The primary url for Neda's Open Business Plan is: http://www.neda.com/StrategicVision/BusinessPlan Our business model of not using the locking mechanisms of trade secrets, copyright and patents plus the notion of an open business plan is very difficult to digest for Venture Capitalists. Yet, the scope and scale of what we are trying to do requires facilitation of external participation including capital investment. Our engagement with Venture Capitalists typically starts here: http:// www.neda.com/StrategicVision/Participating/Investment/StartHere Insisting on this honest and transparent model has come at a price. We point with pride to the fact of having been thrown out of the offices of some of the most prestigious high-technology venture capital companies in the Pacific Northwest. In this presentation, we will provide an overview of the model that we have been following and the lessons we have learned from interacting with VCs. We believe that open source software engineers are best positioned to pave the way towards making widespread the concept of open business plans. We highly encourage those wishing to attend this presentation to page through this example open business plan.",

This document facilitates writing in Persian with Emacs. Emacs is the ultimate multilingual customizable editor centered user environment. Emacs is the base for By*'s choice of user environment in the Halaal/Convivial quadrant. Multiple Persian input methods are part of the emacs distribution. This document provides complete information for these input methods. Emacs comes with two built-in Persian input methods: farsi-isiri-9149:

      A Persian keyboard based on the Islamic Republic of Iranâ€TMs ISIRI-9147
      specification.
  farsi-transliterate-banan:
      An intuitive transliteration keyboard for Farsi.
      The ISIRI-9147 Persian keyboard is not well suited to Iranian expatriates
      living in the West. Persian-speaking expatriates are usually already
      completely familiar and accustomed to the standard qwerty keyboard, and
      they donâ€TMt want to have to learn and adapt to ISIRI-9147. Rather, they
      expect software to adapt to them.
      This is what “Banan Multi-Character (Reverse) Transliteration Persian
      Input Method” – accomplishes.
      Consider that we want to write:
      حالا، با نرم افزار حلال میتوانیم به فارسی سالم بنویسیم.
      Note that we are not writing in pinglish. Ignore the vowels and think of
      the Persian writing above letter-by-letter.
      Now type:
      Hala, ba nrm afzar Hlal mitvanim bh farsi salm bnvisim.
      It is as simple as that.

Full conformance to ISIRI-6219 is demonstrated by use of the character mapping tables enumerated in ISIRI-6219.
Based on this effort, various suggestions for improving ISIRI-9147 and ISIRI- 6219 are included in this document.
Emacs comes with a rich mail reader, a personal planner, an address book, a calendar, spell checkers for English and Persian, multi-lingual dictionary interfaces and many other tools and packages; all integrated together. Because Emacs supports Persian, all these tools and packages also support Persian. Most Iranians today use Microsoft Windows products such as MS Word and MS PowerPoint in the Haraam/Industrial quadrant. Microsoft Windows is closed, proprietary software made by an American corporation. Our goal is to enable and encourage the transition of Iranians from the proprietary Microsoft Windows products in the Haraam/Industrial quadrant, to the far superior Emacs in the Halaal/Convivial quadrant. This document provides enough information to enable anyone to obtain Emacs and begin using it as her/his Persian user environment.",

Libre Services. Additionaly it creates a framework for cooperative exection of that vision.
As By Libre Services are copyleft and patent-free, the entire concept is positioned as an instance example for operation in the for-profit nonproprietary quadrant.
Our vision and plans are lofty, ambitious and extensive. We have spent considerable effort articulating our vision and inviting participation of others. All in one place our full vision as a collection of articles is publicly available in this document.
The basic underlying principles of our vision are these:

  • The correct model for software is the Free Software model
  • The correct model for Internet Services is the Libre Services model
  • The correct model for a coherent set of Libre Services is the By unified model By \"correct\" we mean that these models bring far greater benefits than their proprietary counterparts. The benefits we speak of are not a set of abstract idealizations, conceived without reference to the practical realities of the world. The Free and Libre models bring real and practical benefits to all relevant constituencies, including societal, engineering, and business. The Free Software model is now well established as a viable reality, and is being energetically moved forward by others. Our strategic vision concerns the second underlying principle: the Libre Services model. Our goal is to establish Libre Services as a viable model for delivery of Internet Services, and eventually as the dominant model, worldwide. The realization of this ambition has two major dimensions: public, and private.
  • The public dimension. In contrast to the proprietary services model, Libre Services are a commnunal public resource, not owned by anyone, freely available for use by society at large. Development and promotion of the general Libre Services model must therefore take place in a noncommercial, public context. The general Libre Services movement is being led by the Free Protocols Foundation (FPF), a non-profit organization dedicated to the maintenance of patent-free protocols and software. For more information visit the FPF website at: http://www.freeprotocols.org/
  • The private dimension. If Libre Services are to come into widespread usage they must be operated, delivered and supported for end users. In practical terms, this is something that must be done by service providers in a private, commercial context. Somewhere in all this there must be a business model that supports delivery of Libre Services to individual users. Neda Communications, Inc. is exercising leadership in the commercial arena. We have formulated an appropriate business model, and we are the first company to deploy and operate Libre Services in a commercial context. For more information visit the Neda website at: http:// www.neda.com/ The public dimension of this initiative is fully described in a document called the Libre Services Manifesto, written and published by the FPF. This document is available at: http://www.libreservices.org/ The present document, titled Neda Strategic Direction Statement, provides a complete description of Neda's long-term business direction and strategy. Our strategy is based fundamentally on the Libre Services model, and therefore a complete understanding of our strategy also requires a complete understanding of the Libre Services model. This document therefore includes the Libre Services Manifesto as a subset. This document also includes a description of the commercial constructs Neda has built on top of the Libre Services model. Our goal is to provide in a single document everthing required to understand what we are doing.",

In this presentation we provide an analysis of the mobile texting medium, and enumerate all the components necessary to implement this as a truly Libre solution. These include: public wireless spectrum, wireless Internet, patentfree efficient texting protocols, open texting devices, free device software, and matching Internet service software. All these components exist and are in place today.
We have implemented a Libre solution using a Linux PDA (Nokia 810), local WiFi for wireless device connectivity, and our own Libre Texting message center. The result is complete, end-to-end Libre Texting functionality. In situations where local WiFi is not available, we use MURS public wireless spectrum for wide area connectivity. During the presentation we provide a live demonstration. The following documents provide additional information related to this presentation.

   abstract      = "This presentation document describes the deployment of By Libre Services as a

new model for delivery of Internet Services. The presentation covers three major topics:

  1. The Libre Services model Libre Services is a non-proprietary model for delivery of Internet services. Libre Services are an extension of the principles of free software into the Internet services domain. They are Internet services that can be freely copied and reused by anyone. Any company or organization can reproduce and host any Libre Service, either for its own use, or for commercial or non-commercial delivery to others. The Libre Services model exists in relation to the proprietary Internet services model of AOL, MSN, Yahoo and Google, in an analogous way to how GNU/Linux exists in relation to Microsoft Windows. A detailed description of the Libre concept is provided in the document titled, Libre Services: A non-proprietary model for delivery of Internet services, available at: http://www.freeprotocols.org/PLPC/100105
  2. The By Services model Libre Services is a development and deployment model, but it says nothing about service functionality. By (pronounced \"by-star\") is a specific implementation of the Libre model. By is a unified services model, unifying and making consistent a large number of services that today exist in functional isolation. It is a coherent, integrated family of services, providing the user with a comprehensive, all-encompassing Internet experience. The By family presently includes ByName, ByAlias, ByMemory and BySMB/ ForSMB. In the works and coming soon are additional services for individuals (ByFamily, ByNumber), services for personal and business interaction (ByWhere, ByEvent, ByTopic, ByInteraction, ByLookup, ByHookup), and software distribution services (BySource, ByBinary). The By services are based on 100% free software and patent-free protocols, and are thus completely transparent and reproducible by anyone. They are a communal public resource, not owned by anyone, freely available for use by society at large. A complete description of By is provided in the document titled, The By Concept: A Unified Model for Internet Services, available at: http://www.neda.com/PLPC/110001
  3. The business model Though the Libre Services model is non-proprietary, in practical terms service deployment must remain largely within the for-profit sector. The Libre deployment model represents a radical shift of the Internet Services industry from the for-profit, proprietary quadrant, to the forprofit, non-proprietary quadrant. In this space the entire software for an Internet service remains a communal public resource in the trust of the engineering profession, while service deployment is driven forward by the full force of for-profit commercial motivations. Therefore an essential component of the Libre deployment model is its commercial dimension. A coherent business model is required to motivate service deployment by commercial service providers. A complete description of the business model is provided in the form of an Open Business Plan titled, The By Family of Libre Services: The future of the Internet Services industry, available at: http://www.neda.com/StrategicVision/BusinessPlan", location = "/lcnt/lgpc/neda/permanent/ByStar/Presentation/ByStarLibreServices" }

Wireless Texting (henceforth ``Texting'') medium, based on the Free Software ideology. Today the Texting industry is dominated by the proprietary, walled garden model. Libre Texting aims to provide equivalent functionality to existing proprietary Texting solutions such as BlackBerry, but (a) based entirely on patent-free protocols and free software, (b) using any mobile Internet device, (c) wherever any type of wireless Internet connectivity is available. The proposed approach comprises five elements: (1) the inherent propagative power of the Free Software and end-to-end models, (2) an overlay network architecture, (3) a new set of messaging protocols, (4) a novel software architecture for Message Transfer Agent integration, and (5) a new software architecture for multiform device integration, based on DeviceResident End-MTA middleware. The proposed technology is highly synergistic with current industry dynamics, including: burgeoning recognition of the power of FOSS, ready availability of Linux-based mobile devices, and widespread Wi-Fi availability. Existing email protocols lack push-mode delivery, and bandwidth and power efficiency; the proposed new protocol profile corrects these shortcomings. The proposed research is to determine feasibility of all critical elements of this approach at large scale.",

\"Libre Texting: A Reshaping of the Medium.\" The proposal was submitted by Neda Communications, Inc. to the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program of the National Science Foundation (NSF) on June 9, 2009. The proposal was declined by the NSF. We received notification of this decision, along with the review comments, on November 02, 2009. We examined the NSF review comments closely, subjecting them to our own internal analysis and discussion. Our conclusion is that they are almost entirely incorrect, representing a near-total lack of understanding by the reviewers of the substance of the proposal. Based on this and our subsequent interactions with the NSF, we also believe there are serious process issues regarding NSF evaluation of non-proprietary SBIR proposals such as ours. We have established this case study to enable open consideration and discussion of these issues. The case study documents the entire trajectory of our proposal, from its initial submission through to its ultimate disposition. In particular, the case study includes our own counter-analysis of the NSF review comments. Here we provide point-by-point identification and clarification of the many technical errors and misstatements contained within the review comments.
The case study also includes references and pointers to all other relevant materials, including the original SBIR proposal, and the NSF review comments. These materials are web published and freely available online for examination by anyone.",

The goal of Libre Texting is to provide equivalent functionality to existing proprietary Texting solutions such as BlackBerry, but (a) based entirely on patent-free protocols and free software, (b) using any mobile Internet device, and (c) wherever any type of wireless Internet connectivity is available. The proposed approach comprises five elements:

  1. The inherent propagative power of the Free Software and end-to-end models
  2. An overlay network architecture
  3. A new set of messaging protocols
  4. A novel software architecture for Message Transfer Agent integration
  5. A new software architecture for multiform device integration, based on Device-Resident End-MTA middleware The proposed technology is highly synergistic with current industry dynamics, including: burgeoning recognition of the power of FOSS, ready availability of Linux-based mobile devices, and widespread Wi-Fi availability. Existing email protocols lack push-mode delivery, and bandwidth and power efficiency; the proposed new protocol profile corrects these shortcomings. The proposed research is to determine feasibility of all critical elements of this approach at large scale.",

Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) proposal we submitted to the National Science Foundation (NSF).
On June 9, 2009 we submitted SBIR proposal number 0946146, titled \"Libre Texting: A Reshaping of the Medium.\" The proposal was declined by the NSF. We received notification of this decision, along with the review comments, on November 02, 2009. The present document records the review comments as taken verbatim from the NSF FastLane system.
We examined the NSF review comments closely, subjecting them to our own internal analysis and discussion. Our conclusion is that they are almost entirely incorrect, representing a near-total lack of understanding by the reviewers of the substance of the proposal. Complete details of our analysis of the review comments are provided in a separate document titled, \"A Live Case Study for NSF SBIR Proposal No. 0946146,\" available online at http:// www.neda.com/PLPC/110016.
The proposal as originally submitted is also available online at http:// www.neda.com/Records/200906091",

Blee goes beyond Emacs by fully integrating Emacs and Firefox/Iceweasel and all of Linux apps underneath it. BLEE features include: – Emacs <—-> Firefox (two way integration) – Inside of Firefox: edit everything through Emacs, Send emails using Emacs+Gnus, … – Inside of Emacs: write html and view it in native firefox in realtime, View all your Gnus email messages in full html in firefox, … Think of Emacs and Firefox as joint sisters. They are all you need. – Incredible Email capabilities Built on top of Gnus. Awsome Multi-Mailbox and Multi-Address support provided with ByStar. Great Anti-Spam capabilities, Search Capabilities, Scoring based on full integration with the address book. Mailing lists access through News with Gmane. – Organizational Tools the likes of which exists no where else: Address Book: bbdb (Big Brother DataBase), Calendar/Diary, Org Mode: To Do Lists, Worklogs, Dynamic Blocks, – Full Integration With dict (Multi-Lingual Dictionaries, Thesarus, …), Powerfull templating systems and Abbreviations. – Fully Multi-Lingual (m17n). Emacs 24 now includes bidi (bidirectional editing). That means in addition to Latin being native, now Perso-Arabic script is also native emacs. – Of course, Music (emms) and tons of games. And all of this we will show you. This talk will for the most part be interactive demos.",
