On March 20, the hashtag #GlobalP2P suddenly vaulted up among Twitter’s most globally used. One detail: It had never before been a trending topic. Afterward, #GlobalP2P was an insistent echo raising the visibility of theP2P Foundation's Wikisprint event, a mapping of the commons and peer-to-peer space taking place that day in Latin America and Southern Europe. The explosion of #GlobalP2P as a trending topic was no accident. There was a intensive process underway to increase participation in and awareness of the Wikisprint with hundreds of groups, individuals, foundations, universities, and governments involved.
