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.

The Politics of Piracy - Daily Californian | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The walls ooze a sticky white in my freshly painted room. Paired with what little stuff I have, the setting verges on monastic.

Collective Wisdom in an Age of Algorithms

Changes to platforms we use regularly are always slightly traumatic, as we invariably discover when we roll out a new library website and the complaints begin, or we find out a database interface has changed radically the day we’re introducing it to students. Platform changes are even more distressing when they are sites to which we contribute content. By creating social circles and sharing information on websites, we often forget they belong to other people who have values and motivations different from ours. Those values are not likely to appear in their tagline or mission statement. (Google, for instance, is not really in the business of defeating evil.) Their motivations aren’t going to be easy to find in the click-through terms of service, either, and morphing privacy policies don’t clarify the situation.

A film review that hits home-'The Internet's own son' - Heritage Florida Jewish News

A film review that hits home-'The Internet's own son' - Heritage Florida Jewish News | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Recently, I viewed the compelling documentary "The Internet's Own Son," about the life and untimely death of Internet activist, Aaron Swartz, and it hit home in a couple of unexpected ways. Not only was Swartz raised in a Jewish family in my hometown of Highland Park, Illinois, but coincidentally, we both grew up in the same house, 15 years apart. Aaron's parents, Susan and Robert Swartz, currently reside in the house I consider my own childhood home from 1970-1986. According to Zillow, the ravine-side Highland Park home last sold in 2000, so Swartz's family would have lived there from the time he was about 12 years old until the present.

Richard Stallman's TEDx video: "Introduction to Free Software and the Liberation of Cyberspace" — Free Software Foundation — working together for free software | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

RMS was invited to give a TEDx talk at "FREEDOM (@ digital age)" in April and took the opportunity to explain the fundamentals of the free software movement to the general public. In this speech, RMS specifies the issue and makes the stakes clear; he explains what a computer is and who controls it, what the various implications of free software and of proprietary software are for you, the user, what you can do to stop being a victim, what the obstacles to computer-user freedom are, and how you can make a difference.
