New Work, New Culture | Context Institute
Posted on June 27, 2012
Technology and the shrinking job market could liberate us from meaningless work and allow us to do things we care deeply about.

An Interview With Frithjof Bergmann, by Sarah van Gelder

One of the articles in It’s About Time! (IC#37)
Originally published in Winter 1994 on page 54
Copyright (c)1994, 1996 by Context Institute

According to philosopher and community catalyst Frithjof Bergmann, we are less free than we think, surrounded as we are by endless trivial choices. We will only really be free when we have the option of doing things with our lives that we care deeply about.

The current job crisis, in which thousands find themselves unable to work in their fields, is forcing many people to reconsider what they want to do with their lives. Frithjof Bergmann started New Work to encourage that exploration at the deepest levels and to teach the skills that will enable people to make their dreams a reality. If many people were empowered to make these kinds of choices, the ripple effects would be felt throughout the culture.

Journal of Peer Production

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.
