The Next Big Thing You Missed: The Sharing Economy Goes Corporate - Wired | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Jeremiah Owyang has a co-working space, not an office. He has an executive assistant that he assigns tasks online, but has never met in person. He outsourced decisions involving his new company’s logo, its web design, and even its name to a world of strangers across the internet, or whathe sometimes calls “the people formerly known as consumers.”

Karatani Kojin - P2P Foundation

Karatani Kojin - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"Karatani Kojin’s (1941- ) recent thought offers a novel way of grappling or dealing with the dilemma which we pointed to in Yoshimoto and Asada, namely how the aspiration to work for societal change could be combined with an affirmation of the masses’ withdrawal from public involvement. The question is particularly timely since the 90’s has been a decade in which much discontent with the system has taken the form of exit – from school, marriage, the labor market or (in the case of the social withdrawal) from social life tout court. Can such discontent be turned into effective forms of resistance? Can it be channeled in ways that could further social change? Today questions such as these have gained renewed importance.

Let's rally for The Credit Commons | Rally.org

Let's rally for The Credit Commons | Rally.org | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
The Credit Commons is a crowdfunding and crowdsourcing campaign with one audacious and visionary goal: to rethink the system. Our current system was created over 100 years and needs to be modernized. It’s an an unstable and unsustainable system that came within hours of a complete meltdown in October 2008. Today we stand on the threshold of a new frontier in money systems. With the advance of digital technology, social networks and mobile payment solutions, new models of creating shared prosperity are emerging. Can we connect the dots between these trends and design a parallel, complementary system to allocate capital more efficiently and equitably? Instead of waiting for Washington to act, can we use our own capital and ingenuity to create the code of a more democratized "money as software" platform? Can we imagine “Social Banks” inspiring public trust with new motivations, new sharing mechanisms, new levels of stability coded right into the DNA of this new system?
