How Facebook Killed the Internet - Center for Research on Globalization

How Facebook Killed the Internet - Center for Research on Globalization | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Many people from the grassroots to the elites are thrilled about the social media phenomenon.  Surely some of the few people who will read this are among them.  We throw around phrases like “Facebook revolution” and we hail these new internet platforms that are bringing people together all over the world.  And I’m not suggesting they don’t have their various bright sides.  Nor am I suggesting you should stop using social media platforms, including Facebook.  That would be like telling someone in Texas they should bike to work, when the whole infrastructure of every city in the state is built for sports utility vehicles.

'Haters gonna hate' is no consolation for online moderators | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
When trolls strike in website comment sections and across social media, we tend to look to curtail the perpetrators and help their targets. But what of the moderators – the often nameless and invisible people caught in the middle trying to police the flow of abusive, and often very offensive, material?

Software that has the Quality Without A Name | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Over the course of  The Nature of Order, Alexander manages to show that environments or structures that are built according to that method all end up having the Quality Without A Name. He calls this living structure. It can be measured and compared. It no longer has no name; we can now speak of environments with more or less living structure than others, or of programs with more or less living structure than others – and we strive to make have more of that property.

Uber feeds on class inequality | P2P Foundation

Uber feeds on class inequality | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
“There are only two requirements for an on-demand service economy to work, and neither is an iPhone. First, the market being addressed needs to be big enough to scale—food, laundry, taxi rides. Without that, it’s just a concierge service for the rich rather than a disruptive paradigm shift, as a venture capitalist might say. Second, and perhaps more importantly, there needs to be a large enough labor class willing to work at wages that customers consider affordable and that the middlemen consider worthwhile for their profit margins.

Why Pirate Parties need to evolve, or die | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
“I came to the Pirate movement as a film student frustrated with Hollywood and fascinated with the Internet. I stayed for the promise of a genuinely new kind of political thought, and the Pirate Wheel‘s potential to apply to every sociopolitical issue. As institutions fail all over the globe, that holistic approach hasn’t really materialized. Even though we need it more than ever.

Essay of the Day: FabLabs, 3D-Printing and Degrowth | P2P Foundation

Essay of the Day: FabLabs, 3D-Printing and Degrowth | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
“No technology can be sustainable in itself – for it to contribute to a truly green economy in a degrowth society the attitudes and needs of the people have to be addressed as well (Grunwald 2002, Lipson 2013). Thus the technology of a decentralized production holds a twofold potential: on the one hand the risk of exploding production and consumption of easy-to-make, easy-to-throw-away gadgets and on the other hand new possibilities for sufficiency, ecological design and repair-culture.”

Bonnita Roy on Grand Narratives in the P2P Age | P2P Foundation

Bonnita Roy on Grand Narratives in the P2P Age | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Dear Bonnitta Roy, I need your lights on the following issue: it is often said that post-modernism killed grand narratives yet post-post-modernism is about synthesis, integration and looks a bit like grand narratives … my own feeling with constructing p2p theory is that it was necessary to reconstruct after deconstruction, but with the following caveats the theory has to be empirical, you must be willing to change through facts it must be coherent internally, though paradoxes and contradictions may occur and must be recognized it must be integrative, non reductionist and invite people to ameliorative action nevertheless, these approaches may look like grand narratives .. so how do you explain this type of approach to sceptical postmodern academics who always come with this argument?

Me and other hospex activists are creating a new volunteer based gift/free-economy project. While hosting will be at the core of Trustroots, it’s not limited to it.

This project started from an idea to create “Hitchwiki Hosts”. We were frustrated with CouchSurfing and later with BeWelcome not really moving forward, and thus we decided to act.
