Collective Action After Networks - P2P Foundation

Collective Action After Networks - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"Rejecting the dichotomy of centralism and horizontalism that has deeply marked millennial politics, Rodrigo Nunes’ close analysis of network systems demonstrates how organising within contemporary social and political movements exists somewhere between – or beyond – the two. Rather than the party or chaos, the one or the multitude, he discovers a ‘bestiary’ of hybrid organisational forms and practices that render such disjunctives false. The resulting picture shows how social and technical networks can and do facilitate strategic action and fluid distributions of power at the same time. It is by developing the strategic potentials that are already immanent to networks, he argues, that contemporary solutions to the question of organisation can be developed."

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.”

EconoMonitor : Great Leap Forward » BOOM BUST BOOM: MINSKY AT THE MOVIES | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

I highly recommend a movie to be released next year (that is, the year that begins next week). Terry Jones, of Monty Python fame, is one of the key developers of the film. It is on the Global Financial Crisis, but also provides a quick history of bubbles and crashes. It is highly entertaining and as good as any that I’ve seen on the crisis.
