A short video on Commons Based Reciprocity Licenses | P2P Foundation

A short video on Commons Based Reciprocity Licenses | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Work on developing Commons Based Reciprocity Licenses (or CBRLs, for short) continues apace here at the P2P Foundation. When speaking of the types of licenses, we often find it hard to explain how they fill a niche in the alt. license spectrum, falling somewhere between the straight up copyleft and the popular Creative Commons Non-Commercial License.

Join us in building the Sharing Cities Network - YouTube

Imagine a city where everyone's needs are met because people make the personal choice to share. Where everyone can create meaningful livelihoods. Where fresh, local food is available to all. Where affordable housing and shared transportation are abundant. Where the people decide how the city budget is spent. Where the people own the utilities and the banks, and even create their own currencies. Imagine a city where the more we share, the more we have.

Mobile + Sharing Economy + Internet of Things = the Coming Economic Boom - Entrepreneur (blog)

Mobile + Sharing Economy + Internet of Things = the Coming Economic Boom - Entrepreneur (blog) | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The peer-to-peer sharing models, like Spinlister (where I work) and Lyft, offer new and unique options for transportation at your fingertips.

Rachel Botsman: Collaborative Consumption Will Define the 21st Century - Speakers Connect | Asia's Leading Speakers Bureau | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Botsman defines collaborative consumption as being about “reputation, community and shared access” as opposed to “credit, advertising and individual ownership”. It is about connecting to each other and sharing and exchanging all kinds of assets, including cars, skills and money. “It has the power to reinvent not just what we consume but how we consume,” she said.

What is open source software?

What is open source software? | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

open sourceOpen source is one of those phrases that gets thrown around, from the Cabinet Office now asking for it in government ICT contracts, to cyber-libertarians saying it heralds the start of a post-capitalist age. But what does it actually mean? And given how much of the for-profit digital world depends on open source - from Android phones to the Safari browser, Facebook’s servers to YouTube’s interface - is it another example of an economy wanting something for nothing?

This Changes Everything deserves to be viewed not as one of the greatest nonfiction works of the 2010s, but as one of the greatest nonfiction works of all-time. Disregard that 2008 Obama speech—the publication of this book will truly mark the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow, and the planet began to heal.

Scottish independence: an imperial implosion? - China.org.cn | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
The referendum on Scottish independence on Sept. 18 has thrown the British political elite into utter panic. A few months ago it appeared that this referendum would produce a close victory for the campaign to keep the United Kingdom (UK) together. But now colossal concealed tensions have been unleashed. They strike at the heart of historical knots that bind together the modern world. A vote for independence will have a profound impact far beyond this "Sceptered Isle."

Nathan Blecharczyk, co-founder and chief technology officer of Airbnb, talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about Airbnb, one of the earliest companies to use technology to allow individuals to share underused resources, and in the case of Airbnb, housing. Blecharczyk and Roberts discuss how a design conference and the Democratic National Convention got Airbnb started, how the company aligns incentives to overcome the trust problem of house-sharing, and the rise of technology and online social networks to make a new business model possible. Along the way, Blecharczyk gives his take on the role of luck vs. skill in entrepreneurial success and how Airbnb plans to expand its product offerings in the future.
