Community Rights - P2P Foundation

Community Rights - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

“We believe that to attain sustainability, a right to local self-government must be asserted that places decisions affecting communities in the hands of those closest to the impacts. That right to local self-government must enable communities to reject unsustainable economic and environmental policies set by state and federal governments, and must enable communities to construct legal frameworks for charting a future towards sustainable energy production, sustainable land development, and sustainable water use, among others.”

Cities as Commons: the Italian constitutional clause of horizontal subsidiarity comes to life in Bologna. | LabGov - Laboratorio per la governance dei beni comuni

Cities as Commons: the Italian constitutional clause of horizontal subsidiarity comes to life in Bologna. | LabGov - Laboratorio per la governance dei beni comuni | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Collaborative governance will become the salient characteristic of the City of Bologna and paragraph 118 (4) of the Italian Constitution, introducing the principle of horizontal subsidiary, will finally become the keystone of a new relationship between cities and governments. Horizontal subsidiarity demands all levels of governments to find ways to share their powers and cooperate with single or associated citizens willing to excercise their constitutional right to carry out activities of general interest.

Terje Bongard: No grant for MEDOSS | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

I just received the following email from Terje Bongard, and my spirit fell low. The RID-model (Representative Ingroup Democracy) is the most promising initiative I know about. For me the rejection of Bongard’s project feels like the end of the world, and actually I think it is.

Open Thoughts 2014 | How many peers does it take to change a light bulb?

Open Thoughts 2014 | How many peers does it take to change a light bulb? | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

By Maxigas, researcher, Internet Interdisciplinary Institute (IN3-UOC). Peer to peer superpowers In this blog entry I summon the Light Side and also the Dark Side, then ask what binds them together. So my answer to the Open Thoughts 2014 Question ― How many peers does it take to change a light bulb? ― is “3”. Namely, Rebel General Dodonna, the Emperor Palpatine himself and Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi. Open Thoughts for Open Force! 1. General Dodonna: “May the Force be with you” Peer production is about creating and maintaining common resources collaboratively. The Internet enables informal mass collaboration on immaterial goods.

“The Heritable Innovation Trust Program was created after the 2008 “Heritable Knowledge Framework and the Development of Communal Innovation Trusts” document written by Dr. David Martin. However, reaching from the newest soil erupting from Tavurvur in Papua New Guinea, to the Ecuadorian Amazon, to the oldest and largest known empire on Earth in Mongolia, the Heritable Innovation Trust is quickly diversifying and growing.

What is David Holmgren really saying?

What is David Holmgren really saying? | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
My deepest hope is that after all this discussion ABOUT Holmgren’s ideas, that people will actually read his work, especially Permaculture: Principles and Pathways Beyond Sustainability. The theme of the book is energy descent, the same theme as the latest paper. The book rises above any particular strategies associated with Permaculture and offers broad principles that can be applied at any scale to the problems of a society that has reached the limits of growth.”

The austerity of the commons: a struggle for the essential | openDemocracy | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

In a precarious context induced by a struggle for the essential, one term has re-emerged as indispensable, providing many of us with a new sense of direction, creation and sharing, and ultimately, like a boomerang, assuming the ‘austere’ dignity of that which cannot be renounced: the commons.

Social Commons - P2P Foundation

Social Commons - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Firstly, the term ‘social commons’ is meant to be analogous with the protection of the so-called ecological ‘commons’. Defending ‘the commons’ means focusing on that which is shared by all human beings. It is the very foundation of collective life of humanity. It also means resisting the current commodification of everything and a breakaway from the dominant logic. The ‘social commons’ are human-made commons, meant to protect individuals and societies.

Interview with George Dafermos FLOKsociety researcher

Interview with George Dafermos FLOKsociety researcher | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

George Dafermos: The goal of the FLOK Society Project is to develop a set of transition policy proposals for an alternative, post-capitalist model of social and economic organisation based on the principles of open source and free software; a model which provides free access to knowledge, using non-authoritarian organisational structures, with respect for human beings and the environment. That is especially important for Ecuador which has set itself the goal of transforming the country from an economy based on exctractivism to a social knowledge economy, that is, an economy that provides free access to knowledge. As for the global benefits, I believe that if we succeed here, we could change the world!

David de Ugarte on Terminal Modernity

David de Ugarte on Terminal Modernity | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
To me, Big Data is modernity’s ultimate expression. It is terminal modernity. That what Foucault would allude to as a kingdom being an extension of the king’s body has become a huge volume of data being centralized by a handful of very powerful corporations and another handful of governments. As a result, what we see is an ongoing bio political experiment in the ways Louis XIV or even Stalin could only dream of.

Sharing clout and the EU's Copyright Consultation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The Copyright Consultation of the EU received 11,117 replies in the course of 2 months! I believe that the outstanding efforts of the Copywrongs team, an impromptu organized chaos which made a decision on the whim to just do it and make it easy for the general public to answer about copyright, was one of the reasons why the EU got so many replies! Super proud of having influenced EU policy and allowed thousands to do so as well!

Rick Wolff on the unravelling of 20th Century Socialism

Rick Wolff on the unravelling of 20th Century Socialism | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
”First, most of the “actually existing” socialist experiments to date unraveled in part because they never transformed the organization of their workplaces. They more or less replaced private shareholders and boards of directors with state officials and they more or less substituted planned distributions of inputs and outputs for market exchanges. What they did not do was to radically alter the internal organization of workplaces in a specifically socialist way. “

Video of the day: Tom Dawkins on Peerfunding and Storytelling

If you’ve ever contemplated organising a crowdfund campaign, this video lecture by Startmesomegood’s  Tom Dawkins is an excellent place to start. Tom makes the all important distinction between “crowd” and “peer” funding, arguing that most project-specific funding is partaken by the existing communities that propel those same projects. He also highlights the importance of narrative coherence and storytelling in any campaign.

Our friend Douglas Rushkoff is in fine form once again in this 15 Minute recap of some of the themes expressed in “Present Shock”. As he says in the blurb for the video: “I like this very brief talk I did for PSFK about Present Shock. It doesn’t explain the whole book, but it definitely conveys the “gist” of it, in presentist style. See what I mean.”

"The common good is a term that can refer to several different concepts. In the popular meaning, the common good describes a specific "good" that is shared and beneficial for all (or most) members of a given community. This is also how the common good is broadly defined in philosophy, ethics, and political science. This concept is increasing in popularity as moral vision for the progressive left in American politics."

The Governance of Online Creation Communities for the Building of Digital Commons

The Governance of Online Creation Communities for the Building of Digital Commons | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

“This chapter addresses the governance of a specific type of constructed common-pool resource, online creation communities (OCCs).OCCs are communities of individuals that mainly interact via a platform of online participation, with the goal of building and sharing a common-pool resource resulting from collaboratively systematizing and integrating dispersed information and knowledge resources. Previous research of the governance of OCCs has been based on analyzing specific aspects of the governance. However, there has been a gap in the literature, one of lacking a comprehensive and holistic view of what governance means in collective action online. This chapter provides a set of dimensions that define the governance of OCCs.
