Open Source Robotics - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"'RoBLOKS" is an idea I (Grayson Sigler) have to create a modular robotic tool that is open-source, adaptable to any use and is affordable to the public. The Lumenlab RoBLOKS Gantry Robot (RoGR) is the first RoBLOKS module, and is truly a technological revolution in the making. For the first time in history, high quality robotic manufacturing is available to the public at a price point that is affordable to nearly all. As a bonus, the RoBLOKS RoGR design is modular and easily adapted to many configurations..." (http://www.lumenlab.com/robotics/)

OSE-21 2015 - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

As Dmytri Kleiner puts it so well in his statement on Radical Openness, to be open is to be free is to not be a capitalist tool (we paraphrase). Capitalism, a form of organization that concentrates profits while externalizing costs, has toxified the earth and deprived humanity of its potential, many industrial era accomplishments notwithstanding. The scarcity concept is a false one. Hoarding of knowledge is harmful to others. The time has come to move well past the open source initiatives in the information technology arena, and to a lesser extent in manufacturing and materials, and go for the whole enchilada -- open source everything with an equal emphasis across all nine opens but singling out here Open Intelligence (education, intelligence, research), Open GovernanceOpen Provisioning(energy, food, shelter, water), and Open Space.

Maribyrnong Maker Map (M3) | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

A 'MakerMap' is an online map that provides information about the people, places and resources in a community that form part of that community's capacity to make things for themselves. It is open, accessible and editable, so that the community can on-goingly build its knowledge and awareness of the 'making' resources in the community, and facilitate interaction and collaboration between artistans, designers and other makers that currently do not know about each other.

Fair and Open IT: Part 1 - Systematic Exploitation | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
By David Charles The IT industry is founded on systematic exploitation, from the mining of raw materials right through to the way we dispose of our old technology. Why is the industry so exploitative? The usual hoary reason: profit. Companies don’t pay sufficient attention to the ethical consequences of their entire supply chain or the …

Internet Security and the Limits of Open Source and Peer Production - P2P Foundation

Internet Security and the Limits of Open Source and Peer Production - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"Open source and peer production have been praised as organisational models that could change the world for the better. It is commonly asserted that almost any societal activity could benefit from distributed, bottom-up collaboration — by making societal interaction more open, more social, and more democratic. However, we also need to be mindful of the limits of these models. How could they function in environments hostile to openness? Security is a societal domain more prone to secrecy than any other, except perhaps for romantic love. In light of the destructive capacity of contemporary cyber attacks, how has the Internet survived without a comprehensive security infrastructure? Secrecy vs. openness describes the realities of Internet security production through the lenses of open source and peer production theories. The study offers a glimpse into the fascinating communities of technical experts, who played a pivotal role when the chips were down for the Internet after large-scale attacks. After an initial flirtation with openness in the early years, operational Internet security communities have put in place institutional mechanisms that have resulted in less open forms of social production."
