what does a new organization needs in terms of vision in order to go to the future?

Scott A Gibbs's curator insight, January 24, 2:08 PM

So, is innovation in the concept of currency  going to be a disruptive technology?

Ferananda's comment, January 26, 8:18 PM
@ScotT A Gibbs the person I know that explores further how innovation the currency of the future to bring innovation forward is @ingenesist .My thoughts on that is that if we take the metacurrency distinction of what currency is then currencies is a new language, a new expressive capacity for humanity that holds the promise of radical innovation and change.

City government controls city-as-a-whole. In order to provide opportunities for citizens to shape local commons within the city, there has to be smaller levels of governance... without creating more of the expensive and onerous machinery of government. Social coops may offer one option.

The flavors of Pittsburgh: Small businesses collaborate on frozen treats

The flavors of Pittsburgh: Small businesses collaborate on frozen treats | Economic Networks - Networked Economy | Scoop.it
Page Dairy Mart‘‍s Chuck Page does not just serve up an ice-cream treat, he provides a multi-sensory experience. The buttery smell of a warm bar cookie, crisp and brown on the outside, mingles with the textures of melted chocolate and toffee goodness on the inside. Juxtaposed with cool soft-serve ice cream and caramel topping, the sundae is a winner on its own. But also give it a catchy local name that only a Pittsburgher would love and you have a best-seller on your hands: The Yinzer Sundae! Worth. Every. Calorie.

Communities Aren't Just Places, They're Social Networks

David Week's curator insight, July 6, 9:11 PM

"Communities Aren't Just Places, They're Social Networks." Indeed. They're networks before they are places. In fact, this obsession with "place" is just the designers' obsession with physical things, grudgingly moved only half a step towards the social. It's too painful for most to make the second step.

A New Paradigm in Economic Thinking - Local Economic Direct Democracy combines economy, politics

A New Paradigm in Economic Thinking - Local Economic Direct Democracy combines economy, politics | Economic Networks - Networked Economy | Scoop.it

Communities worldwide want economies that are stronger, greener, fairer, more resilient, more democratic, and more diverse. Jobs must be created, climate change addressed, infrastructure repaired, schools upgraded, and more. The LEDDA economic direct democracy framework, now under development, offers a bold yet practical solution.The LEDDA framework “pays” people to participate. Family incomes for members rise, and income inequality shrinks. Jobs are created, and funds generated for schools, nonprofits, and public service agencies.The framework is designed to help cities, counties, and local regions lead the way in meeting their challenges, and in transforming local economies into ones that are vibrant, sustainable, resilient, and fair.A complete description is given in the book Economic Direct Democracy: A Framework to End Poverty and Maximize Well-Being.http://www.principledsocietiesproject.org/download/

David Week's curator insight, July 15, 7:21 AM

Cities are aggregation economies, but our formal concept of economic value is too narrow. Works like this may not be technically sophisticated, but provide ways of seeing the city as a more complex field of value creation, all of which needs recognition.

Housing Cooperative - P2P Foundation

Housing Cooperative - P2P Foundation | Economic Networks - Networked Economy | Scoop.it

"Housing cooperatives are defined primarily by their legal structure: coop members own the housing collectively through shares in an organization, rather than individually, as with a condo. Residents also govern the housing democratically, either directly or through elected representatives. Not just for students, coops can be home to support groups of low income families, artists, elderly, disabled, and people with a common purpose. Over 1.5 million homes in the US are part of a cooperative housing organization." (http://shareable.net/blog/how-to-start-a-housing-coop)
