Let’s play startup Mad Libs for a second: “By integrating [noun] with [noun] and our large network of [plural noun], we’ve created the [adjective], most [adjective], seamless and scalable [adjective] delivery solution for e-commerce companies.” If you filled in “delivery,” “ridesharing,” “drivers,” “affordable,” and “same-day,” then congratulations! You have just come up with the “People + Packages” plan that Uber competitor Sidecar is declaring the “future of same-day delivery.”

Peer to Peer energy production and the social conflicts in the era of “green development” | P2P Foundation

Peer to Peer energy production and the social conflicts in the era of “green development” | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
“Since the direct production process is the one that defines distribution, the single most important innate advantage of P2P production is that it ensures, on a long term and on a stable basis, a fairer and more equal distribution of wealth. In distributed production, argues George Papanikolaou, the largest part of the energy produced is intended for individual consumption, limiting the field of the market to exchanges of energy. A network that allows, without the mandatory intervention of a third party, the reversal of energy flows between peers, delimitates even more the sphere of the market and the official monetary circulation.”

The Health Care Revolution You Haven't Heard About - Huffington Post

The Health Care Revolution You Haven't Heard About - Huffington Post | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The foundation of direct primary care is adequate time spent between doctors and patients. Direct care practices do not take insurance but for a monthly fee of less than $100, patients are offered longer visits with their physicians, same- or next-day appointments and the ability to communicate with their doctors through email and even video conferencing. Patients then look for less expensive insurance policies as they only require coverage for hospitalizations, surgeries and specialist care.

Evolving Towards a Partner State in an Ethical Economy - Reality Sandwich

Evolving Towards a Partner State in an Ethical Economy - Reality Sandwich | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

In the  emerging institutional model of peer production, most visibly in the free software industry, we can distinguish an interplay between three partners, i.e.

1) a community of contributors that create a commons of knowledge, software or design;

2) an enterpreneurial coalition that creates market value on top of that commons;  and

3) a set of "for-benefit institutions' which manage the 'infrastructure of cooperation'.

Score Another One for the Internet? The Role of the Networked Public Sphere in the U.S. Net Neutrality Policy Debate | Berkman Center

Score Another One for the Internet? The Role of the Networked Public Sphere in the U.S. Net Neutrality Policy Debate | Berkman Center | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
In this paper we study the public debate over net neutrality in the United States from January through November 2014.  We compiled, mapped, and analyzed over 16,000 stories published on net neutrality, augmented by data from Twitter, bit.ly, and Google Trends. Using a mixed-methods approach that combines link analysis with qualitative content analysis, we describe the evolution of the debate over time and assess the role, reach, and influence of different media sources and advocacy groups in setting the agenda, framing the debate, and mobilizing collective action. We conclude that a diverse set of actors working in conjunction through the networked public sphere played a central, arguably decisive, role in turning around the Federal Communications Commission policy on net neutrality.
