bioswop is a cv-exchange plattform. The idea is
to provide curriculum vitaes, bios, resumes for mutual utilisation and borrowing
as well as basic elements of cvs for assembly. People can provide their cv for
this purpose.In the case of use, the person
can be informed that their CV or parts of it is borrowed by someone. For institutions
the idea is, to provide the name of the institution for utilisation and maybe
even the programm. With a list of several Institutions the assembly of a cv is
possible without utilising existing CV's.The assembled or borrowed cv can be downloaded
as a pdf file. it will carry a footnote 'this cv was borrowed through www.bioswop.net'.
The project is entirely based on trust and involves no monetarian exchange. a
sensible use of peoples information is selfunderstood.
In best case scenario it should devaluate the notion of CVs altogether, the essentialist
elements like e.g. origin as well as the accumulated trade value created through
image exchange on the market place.
