Working and caring in a world of commons

5 November 2013, Hilary Wainwright 

Conventionally, the concept of ‘labour’ is understood as referring to waged labour – the capacity to labour as exercised through a market. It was precisely this narrow understanding of labour that the discussions in this stream challenged from several angles.

 

Doing away with ‘labour’ (pdf, 110KB)

This report on the very rich but diverse contributions to this stream will be organised around the main conference theme: ‘from seed form to core paradigm’. Applying this idea to labour, the vision is of a paradigm shift from an economy in which our capacity to work, to labour or, in other words, to produce is managed as a commodity, priced, bought and sold on the ‘labour market’, to one in which this human capacity is managed as a commons, the responsibility of society, for the benefit of society. (Of course this raises big questions of the organisation of ‘society’ and, as always, the management of labour as a commons)

– NLU Açılış toplantısı 7 Mayıs Perşembe günü yapıldı

– E-kampüste yerinizi alın, kendi platformunuzu tasarlayın!

– Kayıtları başlayan ve programda yer alan ilk kurslar

– NLU’ya ilk bağış FairCoop’dan 1000 FairCoin (dijital para)   

**********

İnternet üzerinden ücretsiz öz-eğitim programına başlayan emek üniversitemiz açılış toplantısı 7 Mayıs’da yapıldı   
Açılış toplantısında iki haftada bir güncellemeler hakkında bilgi aktarımı yapmak, teknik ve örgütsel uygulamaları değerlendirmek, ve platformun gelişimine yönelik fikir alış-verişinde bulunup kararlar almak üzere toplanma fikri benimsendi. Bir sonraki toplantı tarihi ise 21 Mayıs saat 17:00 (Türkiye saati ile) olarak belirlenmiştir!

Toplantılarımız platformumuzun inşası için katkı sumak isteyen herkese açıktır! Toplantı notlarına, gündem ve kararlara göz atmak için linke tıklayın: http://networkedlabour.networg.nl/moodle/mod/lti/view.php?id=25

Şimdi E-kampüsümüzde yerinizi alın, sistemi tanıyıp kendi platformunuzu tasarlayın!
NLU e-kampüsün kapıları koperatif dayanışma ekonomisi perspektifimizi paylaşan bireylerin, grupların, kolektif örgütsel çalışmalarına açılıyor. Herkesi geliştirdiğimiz yaratıcı olanakları kullanmaya veya denemeye davet ediyoruz: http://networkedlabour.networg.nl/moodle/course/index.php?categoryid=9

Moodle ve Big Blue Button eklentilerini yaratıcı şekilde bir araya getirerek oluşturduğumuz e-kampüs üzerindeki her sayfada diğer internet siteleri ve bloglardan bildirimlere yer yermek, sosyal tartışma forumları düzenlemek, çevirim içi görüntülü toplantı sınıfları oluşturmak, Wiki ve açık pad gibi kolektif üretime yönelik çevrim içi araçları kullanmak mümkün. Sayfa yöneticilerine tanınan tasarım ve idari yetkiler ile birlikte sistem tabandan ögrütlenme ve ağ örme anlamında bir kitlesel üretim silahına dönüşüyor. Öyle ki, bu araçları kullanarak aynı çevirimiçi mekanda (örneğin bir e-kampüs), eğitime yönelik sınıflar yanında ve aynı anda resim veya fotoğraf sergileri, forumlar, film gösterimleri, kitap okuma grupları veya şiir dinletileri, konferanslar, paneller, söyleşiler, haritalandırma, örgütlenme, strateji toplantıları örgütlemek olası.

Böyle bir perspektif ile NLU e-kampüsünün inşası, küresel bir emek kültürü üretimi ve paylaşımı kooperatifi şeklini alıyor. Şu aşamada kampüsümüz; birkerelik kitlesel toplantılar düzenlemek üzere oluşturulmuş ‘Konferans Salonları'; her çeşit eğitsel etkinlğe ayrılmış bir ‘Eğitim Merkezi'; sendikal ve işçi eğitimleri ve örgütsel çalışmalar için tasarlanan ‘Emek ve Sendikalar Forumu'; vizyonumuzu paylaşan grup ve kolektifler için ayrılmış ‘Kolektif Çalışma Mekanları'; ve nihayet sanatsal etkinlikler için ayrılan ‘Sanat Mekanları’ olmak üzere beş ana üniteden oluşuyor.

To Save the World… Preface by Bernard Stiegler for Michel Bauwens’ new book | P2P Foundation

To Save the World… Preface by Bernard Stiegler for Michel Bauwens’ new book | P2P Foundation | Networked Labour | Scoop.it
Michel Bauwens, peer-to-peer activist and founder of the Peer-to-Peer Foundation, has a new book out, in French, entitled Saving the World: Towards a post-capitialist society with peer-to-peer. In the book Michel, with his collaborator Jean Lievens, argues that a new distributed and de-centralised economic model is necessary to shake up the world and  drive us towards a post-capitalist society. In a wide-ranging, impassioned and ambitious, perhaps idealistic, diagramming of a new mode of living and working Bauwens reaches for a different way of performing economics and the political.

The book has a preface by Bernard Stiegler that has been shared on the Peer-to-Peer Foundation website and so I have translated it. I have offered this to the foundation and I would be pleased if it is of use to them or to anyone else. The copyright of the text remains under the license attributed to the original book.

CvB discussion in CREA: ReThink UvA's intervention #Maagdenhuis #RethinkUvA

CvB discussion in CREA: ReThink UvA's intervention #Maagdenhuis #RethinkUvA | Networked Labour | Scoop.it

On Monday 9 March, a few hours after the ultimatum posed by ReThink UvA had passed, the Executive Board had planned the first of a series of weekly discussions with staff and students in the CREA university theater. The debate was very well attended: more than 100 people were present inside the auditorium, and another 100 in the overflow space. The program was organized to facilitate a traditional debate, in which the CvB set the terms for discussion, and would be in clear control of the proceedings. But in response to the Board’s breaking of our ultimatum, ReThink UvA staff and students had planned a playful democratic intervention.

After the formal intro and agenda, a staff member took the mic and declared that in light of the CvB’s response of earlier this morning, we have decided to demonstrate what democracy is, sound our own voice, and conduct a slightly different debate with a new agenda. When asked “who we are,” most of the crowd present rose to their feet with signs saying “Het Maagdenhuis is hier” and moved to clear the chairs, sat on the ground, and began a new conversation. The original moderator tried to hang on to his job for a little while, but eventually yielded the floor to a student moderator.

Bibliography and Cirricilum: Critical Global Political Economy, P2P, Commons and the Transition beyond Capitalisms and the Worse

Bibliography and Cirricilum: Critical Global Political Economy, P2P, Commons and the Transition beyond Capitalisms and the Worse | Networked Labour | Scoop.it
GNUnion - One Big Meshwork's insight:

We are inviting the peer producers and the commoners to join us to create a peer produced commons knowledge resource, which will include text books, articles, audio and video material addressing and broadening the dialogue between critical social theories on p2p, commons and global political economy on the other and political and cultural praxis towards realizing emancipatory commons transitions going beyond capitalisms while avoiding worse options like fascisms and wars. Believeing that it is cyristal clear that the humanity is passing through yet another historical passage, a context defined by deepening systemic crisis of human civilization, under serious threats of global wars, extreem right wing and religious fundamentalism, as well as natural and human disasters caused by the current mode of production; but also where the emergence of the realities of the p2p and the commons which by now proven themselves as concept and practices that are bearing 'the seeds of the new', the potential forms of, what Marx reffereed as, the 'associated mode of production' -more then one and a half century ago; while they also promise possible creation what Kropotkin and Buchkin thought as 'communal mutual aid society' -in the previous century, yet to be created and consolidated collectively in pain and struggle. Therefore we are inviting and encouraging all those who are interested in collaborating on this special project thourhg which we could develop a structured and systematic pedegogical material, as a base for free access self- and floss- high level remote emancipatory education material. In order to be able to make any entry please register to the P2P-Foundation's wiki page first. Please make sure that your entries mathes comes under  relevant section, and you are applied as much as a similar format used for other similar material placed on the wiki before you. Let us join efforts to enrich a common pool of emancipatory knowledge and analyses, that can function as a base for cleared vision for commons actions and alternatives with power and energies to realize global transitions towards fair, just, peaceful and beautiful world. For any questions and support you can send an email at: networkedlabour [at] networg [dot] nl

On the recent return of 'acceleration' ideas in relation to transition/rapture 'strategies' from above

I recently did a post on the networked-labour list [http://lists.contrast.org/mailman/listinfo/networkedlabour], and re posted here [http://snuproject.wordpress.com/2014/09/18/coding-the-algorithyms-of-emancipatory-modes-of-production/], of the Algorithms of Capital, an edited volume, by Matteo Pasquinelli. In my post, joining McKenzie Wark’s friendly critique of the ‘accelerationist’ revolutionary politics, I provided an alternative proposal for a slow, zen, calm, mindful bottom up hacking of the ‘accelerationism’ of the capital. Here on P2P foundation’s blog it was the book of the day (yesterday): http://blog.p2pfoundation.net/book-of-the-day-algorithms-of-capital/2014/11/15

Some reflections on the history-hack by Brian Holmes: New brief history of neolbieralism as modernism 2.0?

The below is a mind blowing text by Brian Holmes: Volatile Smile – Information’s Metropolis..  the text is full of history hacking of major importance…



I just have tried to highlight the two the sharpest points that created a cerebral drifting in my mind out of the text. Though it needs further work on facts and figures in order to establish the idea, this post still presents an informed reflection on the detour take Holmes us over Chicago, based on my current work. Potentially I believe that what the story Holmes lies down here infront of our eyes, so naked, might change the brief history of neoliberalism as we know into a longer history of the emergence of global Informationalism as the sub-structure, even mode of production that has kicked off sort of a Renaissance 2.0; which might be started somewhere in the mid-late 19th century and evolved into a second Modernism project with ups and downs, turbulence and vortex creating crises, wars, revolutions and counter- passive revolutions spreading capitalism globally during the second half of the 20th and early 21st century. Such an unfolding has brought about further ‘Enlightenment’ for some classes while it grown the shadow of darkness for many others, with the rise of global religious wars, surveillance based techno-fascisms and Nazisms.

Today evening LSE and UvA occupations met via Skype and had a very inspiring exchange, where David Greaber was present at the London side of the brief semi-assembly we did together. I did post the short video on the net. Here is the youtube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QBRx9j8wGE

Discussion goes on the ideas around ‘how to build a global student movement’ as well as transnational strikes, together to emancipate knowledge and labour. We did decide to meet and exchange more other, virtually and actually, and forge the int. student movement spreading since especially after the crisis, aligning with workers and others.

Whose profit? Reply to Schram on rendementsdenken – ReThink UvA

Whose profit? Reply to Schram on rendementsdenken – ReThink UvA | Networked Labour | Scoop.it
By Enzo Rossi (Political Science) & Dan Hassler-Forest (English)

In Friday’s issue of De Volkskrant, Arthur Schram argues that all is well with the managerial university. Colleagues and students in the Maagdenhuis should just abandon their left-wing romanticism and get down to churning out the next batch of degrees, papers, or whatever they are told to produce. So let’s take a closer look at his arguments, of which we can discern two: (i) rendementsdenken mandates whatever restructuring it requires, and (ii) professional managers are the best judges of that.

The first argument trades on the ambiguity of the term rendementsdenken. The term is stretched over a continuum that runs from “balancing your books” to “maximizing your profits”. Hardly anyone disagrees with the former, and hardly anyone who works or studies at a university thinks that it should be run like a corporation, to enrich shareholders or management. In fact, hardly anyone thinks that way about any other kind of public service—such as health care and judiciary workers, for instance.

LabourLeaks.org submission: TSTG Duisburg Hardship Fund misuse

LabourLeaks.org submission: TSTG Duisburg Hardship Fund misuse | Networked Labour | Scoop.it

LABOURLEAKS.ORG – Exposing wrongdoings in the workplace

This is a letter from the First Represantive of the IG Metall Duisburg-Dinslaken, the German Engineering Union, to former employees of the closed steel works TSTG in Duisburg which made rails for the German railways. The letter is addressed to ex-employees who are still in the union. It concerns those employees who have not managed to find a job after a year after the company closed down. There are two aspects of the letter that are questionable. Firstly, the “works council” is involved in the discussion as to who gets what from the “hardship fund”. This is strange because the council has long ceased to exist. Secondly, the author states explicitely that the information contained in the letter is only going to those colleagues who are still members of the IG Metall. Everyone else may not be informed by the union. No explanation is given as to why this is so and ex-employees suspect that only union members will benefit from the hardship fund.

About Commons Transition | Commons Transition | Networked Labour | Scoop.it

The Commons Transition Platform is a database of practical experiences and policy proposals aimed toward achieving a more humane and environmentally grounded mode of societal organization. Basing a civil society on the Commons (including the collaborative stewardship of our shared resources) would enable a more egalitarian, just, and environmentally stable society.

The proposals in this web platform go beyond rhetoric and are inspired by successful, self-organized working communities that maintain themselves and their environments through Commons Based Peer Production, Property and Governance.

The Commons, together with Peer to Peer dynamics, represent a third mode of societal organization that evolves away from the competitive Market State and obsolete, centrally-planned systems. It is a system based on the practices and needs of civil society and the environment it inhabits at the local, regional, national and global levels.
