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.

Collective Intelligence for the Common Good | P2P Foundation

Collective Intelligence for the Common Good | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
The Internet has provided the infrastructure for a variety of new approaches for collective intelligence. We believe, in fact, that the new communication infrastructure provides the potential for radical changes in the ways that human beings communicate and work together to build a more peaceful, sustainable, and equitable future. At the same time, we acknowledge that collective intelligence is not a recent invention. It has existed for eons before the Internet came into being. While the expression “collective intelligence” is generally not used in this regard, the idea of democratic processes – especially when used to to help govern societies via collective problem solving – is a common material manifestation of that concept. Aristotle, writing in the Politics, states that people are political by nature. In the article on the common good in the Encyclopedia Britannica, this notion is expanded in ways that are relevant today.

How the sharing economy paves new paths in social business | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

If mobility is changing the nature of business operations, collaborative technologies may not be far behind. Collaborative tools are helping companies generate new product ideas, bring subject matter experts together, make healthcare breakthroughs and even provide customer service options through peer-to-peer communities. Sidecar is yet another take on the collaborative business model.

Chris Anderson on Drones, from The Economist

Chris Anderson on Drones, from The Economist | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

It’s simply a case of parenting gone horribly wrong. I have five children, and I’m always trying to get them excited about science and technology and it’s hard. It’s video games versus test tubes, and video games tend to win. At Wired we were fortunate enough to get these cool products in every week for review. On Friday nights if no one had claimed a product I would take it home to try it out on the kids. One Friday there was a Lego Mindstorms robotics kit, which hadn’t yet been released, and a radio-controlled airplane. I thought this would be awesome. On Saturday we’ll build a robot, on Sunday we’ll fly a plane. On Saturday we built the robot, and discovered that Hollywood has kind of ruined robotics. We built it, and then it slowly rolled toward the wall and bounced off. The kids were like, “You’ve got to be kidding! We’ve seen Transformers. Where are the freakin’ lasers?” On Sunday we took the plane to the field and I crashed it into a tree. The kids thought this was totally predictable, that Dad’s science projects had once again failed. And I was just thinking, “How could that have gone better?”

What will it mean for the supply chain if suddenly one out of every two drills is sold between consumers themselves or if three families share one lawn mower? The emergent sharing economy will fundamentally change supply chains. How are all those products going to get from one consumer to the next?

Education technology is trendy. Hardly a day goes by that I don’t read an article or have a conversation in which someone makes the familiar argument that “education is the one industry that hasn’t embraced the technologies of the 21st Century.” The world has changed–so the story goes–and while business has adapted, school hasn’t.

Through our education, from kindergarten to grad school, then through our professional lives, we have been shaped in the same mold, even though we hear here and there that we need to “think outside the box”, that box being only aimed to fit into a bigger box, like the Russian dolls. Conventionalism, risk aversion and complacency kill innovation and entrepreneurship.

Opinion: From neighbor to network, relationships changed | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Consider what a remarkable shift that represents. "Townshipped" society – where communities of people with different skills and interests, disparate concerns and values, collaborated with their neighbors in the pursuit of the common good – lasted from the 1700s through most of the 20th century. Townshipped architecture served as the underpinning for colonial villages, frontier towns, and the urban neighborhoods like the Avondale where my father was raised.

The internet, as a technological backbone, has changed our every day lives in ways we never could have imagined in 1999. The companies who were first to embrace the internet are the ones who are leaders in today’s business world.
