Can the EU-Commission contribute to Collective Awareness for social innovation?

Can the EU-Commission contribute to Collective Awareness for social innovation? | P2P search for New Politics & Economics | Scoop.it

The Collective Awareness Platforms for Sustainability and Social Innovation (CAPS) are ICT systems leveraging the emerging "network effect" by combining open online social media, distributed knowledge creation and data from real environments (Internet of Things), in order to create new forms of social innovation. 


They are expected to support environmentally aware, grassroots processes and practices to share knowledge, to achieve changes in lifestyle, production and consumption patterns, and to set up more participatory democratic processes.

Inequalities in Open Source Software Development: Analysis of Contributor’s Commits in Apache Software Foundation Projects

Inequalities in Open Source Software Development: Analysis of Contributor’s Commits in Apache Software Foundation Projects | P2P search for New Politics & Economics | Scoop.it
“While researchers are becoming increasingly interested in studying OSS phenomenon, there is still a small number of studies analyzing larger samples of projects investigating the structure of activities among OSS developers. The significant amount of information that has been gathered in the publicly available open-source software repositories and mailing-list archives offers an opportunity to analyze projects structures and participant involvement. In this article, using on commits data from 263 Apache projects repositories (nearly all), we show that although OSS development is often described as collaborative, but it in fact predominantly relies on radically solitary input and individual, non-collaborative contributions. We also show, in the first published study of this magnitude, that the engagement of contributors is based on a power-law distribution.”

EU policy making: new guidelines for the collaborative economy

EU policy making: new guidelines for the collaborative economy | P2P search for New Politics & Economics | Scoop.it

In a communication published earlier this month, the European Commission policy makers explain the key regulatory issues at hand and provide policy guidelines for member states. A short spoiler: it focusses on topics that most of us find dry and even boring. But it is worthwhile understanding the main questions and suggestions raised by the Commission because they will determine the political discourse in the future and therefore affect stakeholders in the collaborative economy. That is why Paula summarizes the most important points for you as short and spicy as possible. Read more...

“The annual Future of Open Source survey confirms what we all suspected: Open source has won. Companies are wising up to the power of contribution and cooperation. Those who engage benefit from lower friction in their ongoing operations - reducing the burden of regressions, improving the flow of innovation and sharing the task of security review. It’s the ultimate IT lubricant in the Internet age.”

How Fab Labs Address Environmental Issues - P2P Foundation | P2P search for New Politics & Economics | Scoop.it

"Increasing numbers of citizens have access to digital fabrication equipment via devoted spaces known as Fab Labs, makerspaces and hackerspaces, which are mushrooming globally. Such access enables people to design and make their own products outside of conventional mass production and consumption channels, using technologies such as desktop additive manufacturing equipment (that is, ‘3D printers’), CNC (computer numeric control) milling machines, laser cutters, vinyl cutters and electronics stations for circuit prototyping. The technologies themselves, especially 3D printing, are widely espoused as disruptive technologies that will radically shift production and consumption patterns (Anderson, 2012; Marsh, 2012; Hamermesh, 2014).

When was the last time you saw Greeks protesting in support of  the government? Exactly this is happening right now outside the Parliament with crowds of people flocking to Syntagma Square and raise their voice against the decision of the European Central Bank, to stop accepting Greek bonds as collateral for granting liquidity.

De wereld redden. Met peer-to-peer naar een postkapitalistische samenleving "
Michel Bauwens en Jean Lievens

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Organisatie is in handen van Oikos en Uitgeverij Hautekiet. Event is gratis maar registreren moet via http://oikos.be/denktank/evenementen-denktank/boekvoorstelling-de-wereld-redden.

 

Onze samenleving steunt op het absurde idee van materiële overvloed en immateriële schaarste. We doen alsof de planeet oneindig is en plegen er dermate roofbouw op dat het overleven van de menselijke soort in gevaar komt. Anderzijds bouwen we via auteursrechten en patenten artificiële muren rond menselijke kennis om sharing en samenwerking zo moeilijk mogelijk te maken.

 

Het peer-to-peermodel, geïnspireerd door open source, wil die logica omdraaien. Michel Bauwens ziet in nieuwe fenomenen zoals de samenwerkingseconomie, peer-to-peernetwerken, open source, crowdsourcing, fab labs, microfabrieken, de makersbeweging en stadslandbouw een weg naar een postkapitalistische samenleving, waarbij de markt zal onderworpen worden aan het algemeen belang.

 

Net zoals het feodalisme ontstond binnen de schoot van de Romeinse slavenmaatschappij en het kapitalisme binnen het feodalisme, groeit ook binnen het kapitalisme het embryo van een nieuwe samenleving. Om de wereld te redden, dringt zich een herlokalisering van de productie op en een uitbreiding van globale samenwerking op vlak van kennis, code en design.

Op 15 oktober stelt Michel Bauwens zijn boek voor. De dagen daarna volgen nog verschillende activiteiten in heel Vlaanderen.

 

Michel Bauwens werkte onder meer voor BP en Belgacom, waar hij eBusiness strateeg was. Hij richtte twee internetbedrijven op en is stichter van de Foundation for Peer-to-Peer Alternatives. Hij is voorzitter van de Technology/ICT working group, Hangwa Forum (Beijing, Sichuan) en schrijft onder meer voor Al Jazeera English. Vorig jaar werd hij door het Post Growth Institute als enige Belg opgenomen in de lijst van de 100 meest inspirerende personen voor een duurzame toekomst.

 

Jean Lievens was redacteur van Vonk en freelance journalist, gespecialiseerd in financiële berichtgeving en B2B-copywriting voor onder meer ING, Delta Lloyd en G4S. Momenteel is hij ambtenaar voor de stad Brussel. Hij is een actieve blogger (revolutieresolutie.skynetblogs.be en De Wereld Morgen) en redacteur van online knipselkranten over P2P. Zijn peer2politics is volgens Michel Bauwens een der beste in zijn soort.

Bauwens Joins Ecuador in Planning a Commons-based, Peer Production Economy | David Bollier

Bauwens Joins Ecuador in Planning a Commons-based, Peer Production Economy | David Bollier | P2P search for New Politics & Economics | Scoop.it
Here’s a development that could have enormous global implications for the search for a new commons-based economic paradigm.  Working with an academic partner, the Government of Ecuador has launched a major strategic research project to “fundamentally re-imagine Ecuador” based on the principles of open networks, peer production and commoning.   

I am thrilled to learn that my dear friend Michel Bauwens, founder of the P2P Foundation and my colleague in the Commons Strategies Group, will be leading the research team for the next ten months.  The project seeks to “remake the roots of Ecuador’s economy, setting off a transition into a society of free and open knowledge.”
