19. Invention, intellectual property and income

This week I worked on 2 tasks reffered to Invention, intellectual property and income in order to ‘formulate future opportunities’.

This was the assignment:

  • Individual assignment:

    • Develop a plan for dissemination of your final project .
    • Prepare drafts of your summary slide (presentation.png, 1920 x 1080) and video clip (presentation.mp4, 1080p HTML5, 1 minute max, 10 MB max) and put them in your root directory.


Have you?

  • 1. Outlined future possibilities and described how to make them probabilities > DONE
  • 2. Prepared a draft summary slide and video > DONE

ASSIGNMENT | Promote the project

During the Fab Academy, I worked in many ways, so the final results that could be shared to the community by different ways are:

  • My personal info
  • Every quote and referenced link from others
  • Every object designed and produced by me, from physical to computer files and sketches
  • Every own design, including not only results, but strategies and ideas developed by me
  • The whole own Fab Academy webpage content, including images, structures and (of course) all the text and explanations made by me with the support of GitLab and the Fab Academy course
  • The common work in which I have participated with others, including all the previously mentioned categories

According to the needing of stablishing a precise way to share all this work, it’s important to consider what kind of purposes has the Fab Academy and the Fab Foundation to compare them the mine ones.
I think that one of the most important points of this course is to colaborate to the idea of global and local networks to allow the technologies and their possibilities to contribute to the life development and the culture with a deeper reach because of the access to them.
The capacitation adquired and the work done (including my final project) allows me now to divulgate the digital fabrication for that purpose and for promote myself into the field and networks of education, design and colaborative projects.

The people and networks that I know at this point into these fields, and the projects and possibilites around, make the collective growing affordable, connecting efforts between countries, fablabs, private/public institutions, educational nodes, proffesionals, partners and friends.

This is a sketch about the framework that I image my work can be placed:


Musical instrument
Art sculpture


(Every other place into an elastic medium!)


Inmediately from now



How much



Remember me!
Quote me!
Look for me!


I decided to use Creative Commons to regulate the access control to my Fab Academy job. My main idea is to share the work, as the same way I used the others knowledge and contribution to my development. By sharing to the community, I expect to help with my researches, explanations and files and my point of view.
To help me and my processes to be visible, it’s mandatory to put my name and my URL as a source and also as an author (when it corresponds to my own creations).

I was between these to licenses:

Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike (CC BY-NC-SA)

This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms.

Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs (CC BY-NC-ND)

This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms.

… but, even in order to get some feedback from people interested in my work I would like to stablish the Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs (CC BY-NC-ND) license, I thought that, in that case, people must apply the same restrictive license on future works (something that I prefer to don’t limit). So…
… finally, this is my choice:

Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike (CC BY-NC-SA)

Also, I have to consider the others licenses because I’m working under them.
In this way, I have to clarify which parts are under which license. I made a license page for this purpose, which sumary is this:

  1. CC-BY-NC

    The HTML, the theme, MKDOCS, the documentation all are shared under MIT licenses
    MKDOCS license:

  2. CC-BY-NC-SA

    Program design files and other works


At the moment, I’m not interested in the idea of making business or money directly through the content I have developed, neither to begin my own company. I prefer to work with others on specific projects to make more rich works while I make my own progresses to develop my enterpreunership along the time.
So, the Creative Commons license must be closed for businesses purposes, directly or extensive to others.
