TLDR: It's a webapp that's a bit like P2Panda if you've seen that talk, but it's not p2p, and it has less focus on resources and more focus on responsibilities. You can look at an existing organization using it here or look at the AGPL code on github.
Since september I've been working on (and other people from time to time for a few years before that) on Realities. It's an app that grew out of The Borderland (a danish burn festival with a few thousand members on a normal year) needing to find a way to organize its mostly decentralized organization. The basic concept is that people create Responsibilities (sort of roles (not brief tasks!)) that are categorized into Needs. Realizers (people responsible for a responsibility) are assigned to Responsibilities, there are also Guides (people who don't actually do the Responsibility but know how to do it, or at least how to find someone who knows how to do it) that are assigned to Needs and responsibilities.
It can be a bit confusing to understand at first (we're working a lot on the UX right now though!) but you can maybe take a look at some organizations already using it, Blivande (a hippie coworking space in stockholm) or at The Borderland's own (it's running a slightly older version but should work mostly the same). One cool feature is to click the Graph button in the top right, there you can see e.g. if any individuals are carrying much more of the load compared to other people.
Introducing it now because up until new years it was only possible to have one organization using it per installation, but now anyone can create their own organization in the app, just log in :)
I'm currently getting paid to work on it until probably june as the main developer. But the whole Plato Project has a few more people including (but not limited to) @hugi and @gustav. We're currently funded through a Vinnova grant (swedish gov grant body) and will be moving into a business model similar to e.g. Loomio: You can host it yourself (it's all open source, AGPL3), or we can host it for you (but you'll have to pay at some point if you have money), and in the future we might provide e.g. payment/event ticket handling for some fee.
(we also have an app Dreams but I'll let someone else introduce that)
