Essay of the Day: Do-It-Yourself Biology and the Rise of Citizen Biotech-Economies | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

In order to set up a laboratory in a garage, people depend on a multitude of objects, networks, and people. They heavily depend on other people interested in do-it-yourself biology, they rely on scientific institutions (even if indirectly), they rely on the sharing of information, on the circulation of objects, on Internet platforms, on emails, on donations, etc. In short, people who want to practice do-it-yourself biology need to tap into these emerging and open collectives of people, ideas and objects that are currently materialising around the notions of garage biology, DIY biology, biohacking, etc. These citizen biotech-economies are to be open, collective, distributed, and accessible.

ICT, open government and civil society » Journal of Peer Production | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

With the rise of information and communication technologies (ICTs), a fundamental transformation has taken hold of the knowledge processes that define the operations of nearly every facet of contemporary life. Whether in the industrialised North, or in the transitional economies of the South, information and communication technologies are remaking economics, politics and social life itself. Today, the technological organisation, control and dissemination of knowledge and information has taken centre stage in the growing debate concerning the nature and direction of democratic governance, of economic and social development, and ultimately of the limits and prospects for personal freedom in today’s digital culture.

Policies for the Commons - P2P Foundation

Policies for the Commons - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"A spectre is haunting the world - the spectre of the Commons. Without a doubt, the world system is in a crisis of such magnitude that the existing state of affairs cannot possibly be maintained for much longer. At the same time, models based on the collective management of common goods and the social economy have sprung up amidst this state of permanent crisis, which suggest that another world is possible. Taking the policy proposals originally developed by the FLOK Society project in Ecuador as a starting point, this JoPP issue explores how the principles of the ?C?ommons, of peer production, of free software and of the social economy can constitute the basis for the development of appropriate policies enabling the transition to alternative, post-capitalist social and economic models.

Transforming the Productive Base of the Economy Through the Open Design Commons and Distributed Manufacturing - P2P Foundation

Transforming the Productive Base of the Economy Through the Open Design Commons and Distributed Manufacturing - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"This policy document examines the application of social knowledge economy principles to the secondary sector of the economy, with an emphasis on manufacturing. The Introduction dissects the concept of the knowledge economy, highlighting the role of access to knowledge as the fundamental criterion for determining its character: In contrast to capitalist knowledge economies that block access to knowledge through the use of patents and restrictive IP rights, social knowledge economies use inclusive IP rights to provide free access to knowledge. In the next section, A critique of cognitive capitalism, we look at how the use of restrictive IP rights has been theoretically justified: In short, IP rights are supposed to promote innovation and productivity. However, the available empirical evidence on the effect of IP rights on innovation and productivity furnishes no such proof. On the contrary, looking at the way in which capitalist firms actually use IP rights reinforces the conclusion that they do not promote innovation, but are in fact hindering it.

Essay of the Day: The More-Than-Human Commons: commoning is caring | P2P Foundation

Essay of the Day: The More-Than-Human Commons: commoning is caring | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

“Where the more-than-human commons departs from other interpretations is in recognizing how the starting point is not an individual subject separated from other people and the world around them, but a relational subject who is always already caught up in a world that is intimately shared . This understanding is not based on an ideal but on the materially and socially constituted relations and practices that tie humans and non-humans together within a particular collective or territory. If we talk of ‘use-rights’ in the commons then these must be contingent on ongoing participation in the production and care of the commons understood as the entire collective of humans, animals, artifacts, elements that are necessary to maintain life processes. This meaning can already be found in the roots of the word ‘commons': ‘com’ (together) and ‘munis’ (under obligation). First, this tells us that the commons is produced together, reflecting our inter-dependence, the assumption that our world is already shared. Second, and arising from this, the obligation that such inter-dependence demands of us. The commons is not a ‘thing’ that we have access to because we hold a title deed or authorization, but something that is ours because we produce and care for it, because we common.”

Thoughts on Peer Production and its Implications for Solidarity Economics | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

We don’t believe the author has actually read the P2P Foundation works, except perhaps superficially, since our analysis is the same as his. We emphatically do not believe that open source itself leads to a commons-oriented society, and have addressed multiple times the issues described in the article below. In fact, rather than bemoaning the inscription of open source in the current dominant political economy, we have been working on the very connection of peer production and the solidarity economy.

jean lievens's insight:

cultural categories that oppose marketplace modes of behavior (or “market logics”) with the more family-like modes of behavior of caring and sharing that we observe in close-knit communities (”community logics”). When we start to pay people for a particular “transaction” then that becomes culturally coded as a “market logic”–market logics are in effect. This signifies to the person a set of meanings:
