The Emerging Leader Labs: A new type of Social Incubator Running on the Gift Economy

The Emerging Leader Labs: A new type of Social Incubator Running on the Gift Economy | Collaborative Culture Emerging | Scoop.it

The premise is pretty straightforward: There are plenty of passionate, driven people who want to make cool ideas and projects happen. Access to resources (especially, money) is often a large barrier to actualizing them. So why not create physical locations that don’t require money as a chief organizing energy source, where enthusiastic entrepreneurs, artists, designers and other creatives can come together and prototype their dreams?

Shikshantar is busy launching a Swaraj Multi-versity, so that youth can bypass college and learn via real-world apprenticeships with a peer community. They’ll get practical skills ranging from filmmaking to cooking to composting to desktop publishing.

Capitalism 3.0 by Peter Barnes | Collaborative Culture Emerging | Scoop.it

Peter Barnes shows us how to build a new economic sector that is held in trust for future generations. Ecosystems and their services would be managed for long-term benefit rather than short-term profit, and all Americans would get cash dividends.

Knowledge Sharing from the Artist’s Perspective: Shareable

Knowledge Sharing from the Artist’s Perspective: Shareable | Collaborative Culture Emerging | Scoop.it

Today, being educated no longer means possessing a certain amount of knowledge transmitted in a one way relation between teacher and students. As our world grows more and more interdependent and our media coverage allows a much more multi-layered understanding of it, it is hard to keep believing in the concept of ‘expert’ (in the understanding of an experienced person having earned the privilege to make judgments in our place).

Credibles: An Investment System That Yields Food, Not Money

Credibles: An Investment System That Yields Food, Not Money | Collaborative Culture Emerging | Scoop.it
When you support a Kickstarter project, you hope to get something in return if it gets enough funding--an album, maybe, or a video game. You’re not just funding the project, you’re prepaying for a product.

Credibles, a project in limited beta from the Slow Money Alliance, is doing something similar with artisan food projects. The big difference: you can redeem the Credibles used to support one project for food at a different business, creating an entirely new investment model for slow food.

Liquid Law | simpler, fairer, more flexible

One of the basic principles of liquid law, is to make law more comprehensible, to make it readable, so that more of us can create with it the sort of agreements we want. To take the computer language analogy, we want to be able to move from machine code⊃1; to a higher level, more readable language like Python or Ruby.

Chomsky: Do We Have the Makings of a Real Revolution? | Economy | AlterNet | Collaborative Culture Emerging | Scoop.it
The Occupy movement has been an extremely exciting development. Unprecedented, in fact. There’s never been anything like it that I can think of. Unless the spirit of the last year continues to grow and becomes a major force in the social and political world, the chances for a decent future are not very high.

This is in the 'Collaborative Culture Emerging' scoop because we are learning to speak the truth to ourselves about what is so in light of the vision of what we want. ( see Peter Senge, Personal Mastery on Creative Tension, in The Fifth Discipline.

From a Canadian Bishop:

"Dear Friends: Excuse me. May I take a moment of your time to point out something which on the one hand is obvious but on the other hand makes the blood run cold? Do you realize that we have become a totalitarian state?"

"As reported by Kelly McCartney in shareable and based on a video from BBC News that was posted on YouTube, the Greek port town of Volos has adopted a barter network – aided by a credit system called TEMs – to help its citizens get through an economically trough time."

 

"People sign up for a TEMs network account, see what services they might offer to other folks in their area who are in need, and start amassing credits that can be cashed in for things they themselves need. TEMs can be used for everything from bakers to babysitters, teachers to technicians."
