Degrowth 2014 - Michel Bauwens on The Transition to a Sustainable Commons Society - YouTube

Degrowth will only be possible by changing the artificial scarcity-based design practices and engineering of the for-profit sector and by removing the incentive to externalize the true production costs in terms of matter and energy. A commons-oriented approach should combine global open design based in communities, local on-demand distributed manufacturing, and the use of renewable distributed energy. Along with changes in governance and ownership, it can contribute to a global phase transition.

All's Not Quiet on the Democratic Front: Why Occupy Wall Street Still Matters ... - Huffington Post | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

On the third anniversary of Occupy Wall Street, don't be so sure that that the ranting and raving about income inequality, fracking and student debt is dead. Although thousands are no longer protesting in the streets, a quiet revolution inspired by Occupy principles has been brewing in the American public. It demands more from government representatives and was all too present in last week's Democratic primary for the governor for the state of New York.

Introducing Toshi - An Open Source Bitcoin Node For Developers

Introducing Toshi - An Open Source Bitcoin Node For Developers | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
When we started Coinbase, we took a look at the Bitcoin Core open source project, and tried to decide how we could use it to build a web application. Bitcoin Core is a great reference implementation, but was never designed to query blockchain data in a flexible way (such as through a SQL database) or to scale to millions of users across dozens of servers. And so we built our own Bitcoin node to power Coinbase (which we’ve now scaled to 1.6M wallets).
