Social Web - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
"A desire to improve and simplify the experience for writing and creating content online. This is probably the area that’s stagnated most until the recent crop of tools like Medium or Svbtle popped up, though there had been a few small improvements in more limited contexts where people carefully reduced the scale and scope of the messages being shared to 140 characters or a single photo or a simple, gestural “like”.

Beyond Jeremy Rifkin: How Will the Phase Transition to a Commons Economy Actually Occur?

Beyond Jeremy Rifkin: How Will the Phase Transition to a Commons Economy Actually Occur? | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

In his new book, Jeremy Rifkin focuses on the value crisis of contemporary capitalism based on the revolution in marginal costs which destroys the profit rate. He concludes that this will mean that the economy and society will re-orient itself around collaborative commons, with a more peripheric role for the market dynamics. In this, Jeremy Rifkin joins the founding charter of the P2P Foundation, which was precisely created in 2005 to observe, study and promote this transition.

Giving The Data Back | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Lessons From The Sharing Economy | TechNewsDB

Lessons From The Sharing Economy | TechNewsDB | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

One of the biggest challenges in the sharing economy is regulatory laws that either significantly slow down or outright don’t permit these new services. Our current regulatory structure is geared toward professional, large-scale businesses and didn’t contemplate consumers becoming providers in their spare time or the use of public assets to provide these services. What makes it even more challenging is that the regulations are rarely at the national level – they are often at the city or state level which can be expensive and time consuming for a startup to navigate.
