What is Technoprogressivism? - James Hughes

See: http://ieet.org/index.php/IEET/biopol... - Technoprogressivism is an ideological stance with roots in Enlightenment thought which focuses on how human flourishing is advanced by the convergence of technological progress and democratic social change. Technoprogressives argue that technological innovations can be profoundly empowering and emancipatory when they are democratically and transparently regulated for safety and efficacy, and then made universally and equitably available.

Edinburgh Tool Library: Creativity, Community, and Cutting Resource Use

Edinburgh Tool Library: Creativity, Community, and Cutting Resource Use | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Article and images cross-posted from Make Resources Count. Written by Paul Hallows The average power drill is used for just 13 minutes in its lifetime. We clearly don’t all need to own one, and they’re often too pricey for many people to buy them in the first place -- meaning a whole lot of untapped creativity and a huge amount of wasted money. And it’s not just drills which are expensively gathering dust in cupboards.

How Can Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Technology Play a Role in Building Social and Solidarity Finance - P2P Foundation

How Can Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Technology Play a Role in Building Social and Solidarity Finance - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"The decentralized digital currency Bitcoin—and its underlying “blockchain” technology—has created much excitement in the technology community, but its potential for building truly empowering social and solidarity-based finance has yet to be tested. This paper provides a primer on the basics of Bitcoin and discusses the existent narratives about the technology’s potential to facilitate remittances, financial inclusion, cooperative structures and even micro-insurance systems. It also flags up potential points of concern and conflict; such as the tech-from-above “solutionism” and conservative libertarian political dynamics of some of the technology start-up community that surrounds Bitcoin. As a way of contrast the paper considers “blockchain 2.0” technologies with more overtly communitarian ideals and their potential for creating “cooperation at scale”. It concludes with suggestions for future research."
