Digital Commons - Commons Transition Wiki | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

A recurring challenge for people working on open networks is to find ways to prevent businesses from treating the shared resources of commoners – code, information, images, videos, product design, etc. – as “free” feedstock for their proprietary market machines. For-profit corporations can mobilize enormous capital and other resources to convert socially generated wealth into marketable products and service, essentially privatizing the shared community wealth or at least its market rewards.

The gift in the heart of language. The maternal source of meaning « Mimesis International

The gift in the heart of language. The maternal source of meaning « Mimesis International | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Genevieve Vaughan offers a paradigm-shifting view of the structure of material and verbal communication, based on mother- child experience and confirmed by recent research in infant psychology. This view justifies a relational epistemology that informs the material gift economy as well as the structure of language itself. Provisioning economies give value to the receivers, and the circulation of gifts consolidates community. Understanding language as verbal gifting unites other orientation with reason to liberate us from biopathic patriarchal conceptions of humanity. Sketched against this background Vaughan introduces a conception of monetized exchange as a giftdenying and expropriating psychological mechanism, which is an unintended collective by product of verbal communication. This view stands as a warning against visions of the future in which the institutions of money and the market can be “fixed”to be more caring, and sanitized business as usual can halt the destruction of Mother Earth. Rather a gift economy, which takes as its model the mother-child interaction, the gifting in language and the gifting in mother-centered societies provides hope for a positive future.

Is your communication effective?

A wonderful insight into communication and how most of us don't use it enough. What's the point of having knowledge if you don't share it through communicating it to others!

From Corporate to Social Media: Critical Perspectives on Corporate Social Responsibility in Media and Communication Industries (Hardback) - Routledge

From Corporate to Social Media: Critical Perspectives on Corporate Social Responsibility in Media and Communication Industries (Hardback) - Routledge | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
The corporate and the social are crucial themes of our times. In the first decade of the twenty-first century, both individual lives and society were shaped by capitalist crisis and the rise of social media. But what marks the distinctively social character of "social media"? And how does it relate to the wider social and economic context of contemporary capitalism? The concept of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is based on the idea that a socially responsible capitalism is possible; this suggests that capitalist media corporations can not only enable social interaction and cooperation but also be socially responsible.

Scientific Communication and the Open Society : The Emerging Paradigm of ‘Open Knowledge Production’ -

Scientific Communication and the Open Society : The Emerging Paradigm of ‘Open Knowledge Production’ - | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The history of scientific communication, even in the post-war period, is a mammoth undertaking where technological developments and the new paradigm of open knowledge production seem to outstrip our capacity to give an adequate account of them. There is so much experimentation by way of new electronic journals launched and new projects being established that it is near impossible to document even the range in its diversity let along theorize its main characteristics and implications for modes of scientific communication. One source, perhaps the most comprehensive, provides a bibliography on scholarly electronic publishing that runs to 1,400 items in English under such categories as: economic issues; electronic books & texts; electronic serials; general works; legal issues; library issues; new publishing models; publisher issues; repositories, e-prints and AOI (Bailey, 2006; see also 2001).

We cannot look at the 2020 workplace merely from the perspective of what will be different from today, as if these five years will pass in splendid isolation. How we think of work has changed over the millennia and one major factor has been our communications technologies. When communication changes, work does too, as well as our understanding of what is knowledge, and what it means to be knowledgeable.

Facebook Is Not a Adequate Communication Platform - P2P Foundation

Facebook Is Not a Adequate Communication Platform - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"I noticed this trend some years ago, to my own despair. I first noticed it in the way, month by month, the quality of many mailing list discussions deteriorated and then fell mostly silent. I noticed it in how I encountered increasingly vitriolic responses to posts on any topic that exceeded more than a single paragraph. The act of reading was becoming an ever-worsening imposition, making coherent on-line discussion increasingly difficult. In space advocacy forums, people would complain about how no one ever presented any 'plans' for doing anything then, when those plans were posted, those same people would complain about being expected to read them--like you were supposed to reduce every highly technical discussion to a bullet list.
