Collaboration and co-operation: Sleeping giants of economic shift change

Collaboration and co-operation: Sleeping giants of economic shift change | P2P search for New Politics & Economics | Scoop.it

by Shane Hughes

 

We are caught between an old system that no longer works and a new one that is trying to emerge. In recent times more and more people have grappled with articulating, what they see as the new economic model, with increasing confidence and detail. I believe that the ‘three C’s’ (the change-maker, cooperative and collaborative movements) now offer a credible alternative to the traditional economic system. I’ll try to do that belief justice throughout this article in a way that is neither too philosophical or too niche to really have an impact. 

 

To understand the emergent new economy you’ll have to first expel, from your mind, the polarized socialism versus capitalism debate. Those –isms have been outdated and outmoded. By the same token we don’t want to throw these old systems away as they hold some fundamental DNA that has to be recycled into our new economy.

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...

Open source is now the default | P2P search for New Politics & Economics | Scoop.it
“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).
