The Cooperation Instinct

The Cooperation Instinct | Commons | Scoop.it

In a dog-eat-dog world, people still cooperate, collaborate, and help each other out. Our species’ urge to work together has remained an evolutionary paradox, seemingly at odds with Darwinian theory—until now.

Harry Madigan's curator insight, October 3, 9:56 PM

It was refreshing to see some optimism in this piece :). I had been trudging through so many negative articles about uncredible and unauthentic pieces, however finding this reinforced my faith. 

 

This article explores the notion of collaboration and cooperation being a characteristic of human nature. 

 

I found it difficult to rank this piece below "How to destroy your credibility by sacrificing Authenticity"  as it is extremely informative and inspiring, yet though it is more so based on theory and ideology i feel the former source is more imperative.

Against Jaron Lanier: financing the commons without commodifying it

Against Jaron Lanier: financing the commons without commodifying it | Commons | Scoop.it

I must make a confession, I have not yet read Jaron Lanier, and I am reluctant to do so. The two ‘trivial’ reasons are that 1) I remember Lanier’s inane comments on digital maoism 2) he continuously uses the straw men argument that “information wants to be free”, means gratis, and that has of course, never been the case, as has ben repeated ad nauseam by free software and free culture advocates, indeed, it’s about “free speech” and the right to share, not about “free beer”. The other annoying thing is that he casts his purported enemies as “idealists”, while they are describing reality as is, while his own nonexisting utopian proposal is billed as realism. This is for me intellectual dishonesty.
