My 2016 Life Experiment: Can I Thrive Living Exclusively on the Sharing Economy?

My 2016 Life Experiment: Can I Thrive Living Exclusively on the Sharing Economy? | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
In September last year, I spent a month seeing if I could survive in the sharing economy in London. It was hard.

My laptop perched precariously on my lap, I write this as I drive around London in a van collecting rubbish that I will be eating for dinner.

The Commons as a Living Process: David Bollier on Transforming Our System

The Commons as a Living Process: David Bollier on Transforming Our System | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
In his recent paper, Commoning as a Transformative Social Paradigm, author, activist and commons scholar David Bollier argues that the commons, which he describes as “at once a paradigm, a discourse, an ethic, and a set of social practices,” holds great promise in transcending the conundrum of imagining and building a “radically different system while living within the constraints of an incumbent system that aggressively resists transformational change.”
