Peer production, the guilds, and the washing machine

Peer production, the guilds, and the washing machine | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

This is not a new article, but a transcript of a marvellous talk by Graham Seaman in 2002 (at the Oekonux conference). I have added it to our selection of key peer to peer essays, which I believe everyone should read to understand the various key aspects of peer production and governance.

P2P Book of the Year 2013 - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
The debtor-creditor relation, which is at the heart of this book, sharpens mechanisms of exploitation and domination indiscriminately, since, in it, there is no distinction between workers and the unemployed, consumers and producers, working and non-working populations, between retirees and welfare recipients.

A history of Austria's Solar Self-Build Movement | P2P Foundation

A history of Austria's Solar Self-Build Movement | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
“In 1983, a couple of years after the second of the 1970s oil shocks and at a time when petroleum prices were relatively low, in a village near Graz, Austria, in the province of Styria, a farmer and an engineer led a group of 32 people in building simple do it yourself solar heaters. They said, “Our primary aim was to build a collector that was inexpensive and easy to build for every one of us. Having become aware of the ????finiteness of natural resources, we also aimed at avoiding all material waste in constructing the collector. Other important aspects were the saving of energy, environmental protection, and community building. Everybody was expected to build their own collector in order to be sufficiently familiar with its function.”
