Our algorithm smashes horizontally through an expanding constellation of best practice literature released by 1000-odd standard setting organizations worldwide every day. These organizations throw off the better part of 10,000 titles relevant to the safety and sustainability agenda of education communities. Many of these titles compete with proposals in the same, or in a similar domain as regulatory titles produced by incumbent verticals working the levers of government. Those titles find their way into public law.
The complexity of the global standards system benefits the interests who have the money to master it. Labor, manufacturers, insurance and conformance organizations are the ruling oligarchy in the global standards system; same as it is in governments of every nation. As we explain in our ABOUT; their free run of the markets is not their fault. It is fault of the user-interest to participate in the private standards system. That’s why we have our door open every day.
Our daily colloquia are typically doing sessions (or “mark up” sessions in the parlance of functionaries on the Washington D.C. policy grid). “Administrivia” is characteristic of the standardization domain; where an outsized measure of resources are spent on process and procedure. During our doing colloquia we assume policy objectives are established (Safer-Simpler-Lower-Cost, Longer-Lasting). Because we necessarily get into the weeds we usually have to schedule a separate time slot to hammer away over teleconferencing platforms.

* Many best practice titles emerge from consortia and open-source platforms; especially so in information and communications technology domains. In many economic spaces, privately-developed consensus products compete with local, state and federal legislative proposals.
