Take My Dog, Please! And Other Tales From The Sharing Economy

Take My Dog, Please! And Other Tales From The Sharing Economy | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

You've heard the phrase, "It's not personal, it's business." But as people start to share everything from their bedroom to their dog it can, and often is both. So what is the sharing economy? A personal exchange of goods and services, sometimes for free, sometimes for money.

How vehicle makers are trying to lock out farmers and drivers from ownership | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Excerpted from Kyle Wiens: “JOHN Deere and General Motors want to eviscerate the notion of ownership. Sure, we pay for their vehicles. But we don’t own them. Not according to their corporate lawyers, anyway. In a particularly spectacular display of corporate delusion, John Deere—the world’s largest agricultural machinery maker —told the Copyright Office that farmers …

Evolutionary Theory of Commons Management - P2P Foundation

Evolutionary Theory of Commons Management - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The ability of humans to organize collective action on a scale much larger than would be predicted by theories of egocentric rationality can be perhaps best explained in an evolutionary context by the slow and uncertain process (not necessarily leading to a desired end) of group selection on cultural variation (distinct from group selection based only on genetic kinship), facilitated by humans' special skills at imitation and teaching.

How to Free the Soil by Depaving

How to Free the Soil by Depaving | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
How much thought do you give to pavement? Our cities are covered with it, but it’s not exactly a hot topic of conversation—though it should be. Pavement causes all sorts of problems including the fact that water can’t soak through it and instead runs across it, collecting pollutants and biological contaminants that make their way into waterways, plants, animals, and ourselves.

instruct the USTR to halt TransPacific Partnership negotiations until parties agree to open for viewing by we the people | We the People: Your Voice in Our Government | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The TransPacific Partnership is being negotiated in secret among a few countries that are most heavily influenced by corporate lobbyists. Lobbyists who sign a non-disclosure agreements get seats at the negotiating table, but members of Congress, the press, and normal humans are kept in the dark. Congress is being asked to "fast track" the process, short-circuiting the open and transparent democratic process in favor of one in which corporations influence the fine print on a document that gets and up or down vote once it finally disclosed and too late to change anything. The only reason for secrecy is fear that an informed democratic society would reject it. That's why we, the people, must know, and we must know now. Humans are not an inferior race to corporations.

Role and Challenges of Crowdsourcing and Citizen Science in the Context of the Data Revolution - P2P Foundation

Role and Challenges of Crowdsourcing and Citizen Science in the Context of the Data Revolution - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"Despite of persistent efforts from the part of organizations aiming to solve or to alleviate the world’s most challenging issues, there are limitations of the current problem-solving system based on hierarchical bureaucratic models. These are mainly related to the powerlessness of the professional sector when, alone, facing global issues of ever increasing complexity and uncertainty. The current context often called “the network age” has in turn, supported and enhanced systems which serve as means for coping with these complex and uncertain scenarios, such as the concept of distributed cognition that leads (in its positive aspects) to collaborative, participatory and peer-to-peer common oriented processes, including the emergence of decentralized systems as well as the gradual empowerment of the civil society (overlapping with the latter); forming altogether, the background of latent paradigm shifts.
