#P2PWikisprint: Southern Europe and Latin America, united by the P2P

#P2PWikisprint: Southern Europe and Latin America, united by the P2P | Networked Labour | Scoop.it

By: Bernardo Gutiérrez 
An indigenous collective of Chiapas, tangled with a co-working space of Quito. A crowd funding platform of Barcelona, ??working with open data movement of Montevideo. A Greek cooperative, inspiring artistic groups of Caracas (and vice versa). A hacktivist group of Madrid, feeding of Rio de Janeiro’s favelas permaculture. A community of free software developers in Buenos Aires, collaborating with Lima based city planners. Cultural groups with hackers. Foundations, together with activists. Copyleft artists + cultural agents. Networked Politics. Open Source Ecology. Open data. Southern Europe, its bottom-up and grassroot movements, united with the buzzling Latin American. Both sides of the Atlantic ocean, twinned by Peer-to-peer (P2P), an open  network topology in which each node is connected to the other without passing through any center. The P2P – with its openness, decentralization and collective empowerment – is not longer something marginal. P2P is philosophy, working trend and a solid reality. P2P is the nervous system of the new world.

AFTERMATH, life beyond the crisis
Networked Labour - One Big Meshwork's insight:

The Aftermath Project provides a social and cultural analysis of the crisis, to add to the prevailing economic and financial arguments. It develops the idea that the crisis was the result of of the same sources that led to the rise of global financial capitalism (deregulation of financial markets, greed, consumerism). These root causes have not been tackled and saving the banks with public money has induced a budget crisis in most countries ultimately leading to a shrinking welfare state and a social crisis. As a result of growing insecurity and fear, people are reacting both with anger and with alternative projects of hope. The Aftermath Project provides a closer look at the social consequences of the crisis and wants to open up a space for dialogue and debate on life beyond the crisis.

Bitcoin is an experimental new digital currency that enables instant payments to anyone, anywhere in the world. Bitcoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority: managing transactions and issuing money are carried out collectively by the network. Bitcoin is also the name of the open source software which enables the use of this currency.

P2P Foundation

P2P Foundation | Networked Labour | Scoop.it

Excerpted from Orsan Senalp:

“Since the Seattle and the first World Social Forum in Porto Alegre, global solidarity and justice activists have been intensively using email lists, Skype meetings, video-sharing, websites and other software available in order to organise alter- or anti-summits as well as reach out the public. However since 2004, with the arrival of high capacity servers and fibreglass cables that allows storing and transmitting of much larger amount of information, the available online tools for activism have become more and more sophisticated, interactive and accessible. The new Web (Web 2.0) has opened up the cyberspace for users’ participation, by producing content, self-publishing and sharing; without any computer programming knowledge.

Second Forum On The Commons | OCCUPY WALL STREET

Second Forum On The Commons | OCCUPY WALL STREET | Networked Labour | Scoop.it

We are organizing our second Making Worlds Forum, “BUILDING THE COMMONS”, to be held in March 29-30, 2013. We envision 2 days of workshops and conversations on how to build spaces and projects for a politics, technology, culture, and an economy of, by and for the 99%.

This year, we would like to open up space for a horizontal conversation with a strong focus on the concrete processes of commoning that are taking place or could take place in New York City now. Instead of the usual format of speaker presentations followed by discussion, we would like to see if an open conversation can take place in which knowledge and experience are shared horizontally. We acknowledge and value all the projects, processes, investigations and networks people are building in their daily lives and in their collaborations with others.

Reflections from the European Deep Dive on the Commons

Reflections from the European Deep Dive on the Commons | Networked Labour | Scoop.it

This is David Bollier‘s report on the European preparatory workshop for the Commons Economics Conference that will be held in Berlin on May 22-24.

David Bollier:

“”At a small workshop outside of Paris, France, twenty-two of us – mostly Europeans except for two of us – got together to discuss the economics of the commons from an on-the-ground perspective. We wanted to identify promising avenues for future research, writing and political action. This was the third of a series of “Deep Dive” workshops that the Commons Strategies Group, working in cooperation with the Heinrich Böll Foundation, held in the fall of 2012. The two other ones were held in Bangkok for Asian commoners, and in Mexico City for Latin American commoners.

Antonio Lopez's curator insight, January 16, 2013 4:52 AM

In light of the sudden and tragic death of Aaron Swartz, it's worth revisiting his manifesto for open access. In terms of climate change, I think there is an ethical responsibility for the research and academic community to have information openly accessible. This is also related to keeping information ecosystems open.

COMMONS DEEP DIVE

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 1

Morning session

Stefano Rototà: The commons means for me: ... inside the modern world and opposed to the narrative of the taxonomy of the economy is a narrative of fundamental rights - and commons means for me that there are some goods which are so fundamentally related to those rights, that they must be commons goods

David: Commons present a different way of seeing and acting different form what i call market-state

Difference between resource and Commons

governance in liberal state versus commoning ontology, epistemology, world view legal, economic, context Idea of the Commons in the Western Law individual, private property, rights versus collective rights

Shareable: The Boom of Commons-Based Peer Production

Shareable: The Boom of Commons-Based Peer Production | Networked Labour | Scoop.it

In 1991, an undergraduate Finnish computer science student, Linus Torvalds, had a surprising idea: he began to write a new operating system on his PC. His initial goal was to be able to try some things that weren’t possible with the operating systems then available to him. After several months of tinkering, Torvalds noted that he had developed a system that could be useful for others, too. He announced his work on the Internet and asked for feedback about features that people would like to see. Some weeks later, he put the software online. Now anybody could download and use his code. It was also possible to adapt it to better fit your needs, if you knew how to program.
