For a “Somewhere School of Sharing Economics”

For a “Somewhere School of Sharing Economics” | Networked Labour | Scoop.it

Pablo Arriazu commented yesterday on the difficulties the new generation has facing the development of its own economic community guided by different values. These difficulties go far beyond the May 15th movement, and we also find them in the three Americas and Europe. It seems strange, because the possibility of building viable economies, starting small, has never been so close at hand.

The Real Agenda of Rio+20 | David Bollier | Networked Labour | Scoop.it

In mid-June, governments from around the world will converge on Rio de Janeiro for a major environmental conference that aspires to come to major new agreements for saving the planet's fast-declining ecosystems. Since the event comes 20 years after a landmark 1992 environmental conference, this one is called Rio+20.

Join this campaign. In all likelihood, the markets and States of the Iberian Peninsula, more than those of Ireland or Greece, are going to show the limits and horrors of this crisis. What happens in this part of Europe is in our hands — and there are also shining alternatives.

96 words on the future of the internet :: net critique by Geert Lovink

96 words on the future of the internet :: net critique by Geert Lovink | Networked Labour | Scoop.it

I was asked by an Italian newspaper to submit 96 words on the future of internet. Here they are:

 

"Instead of further going down the corporate lane of Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, Google and Facebook, I propose to go back to the original architecture of Internet as public infrastructure with decentralized nodes. It may be romantic to insist on the distributed nature of networks but it is a necessary political demand. Net criticism is a toothless project without a utopian dimension. Even if internet itself had a military origin in the Cold War, and is now dominated by equally destructive force of greedy venture capitalists, backed up by libertarian gurus. Let’s rethink the public sphere: another internet is possible!"
