Collective Intelligence: Evidence based activism in Patients’ Organisations | Nesta

Collective Intelligence: Evidence based activism in Patients’ Organisations | Nesta | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Patients’ organisations are increasingly becoming spaces of innovation in the relation of citizens with science, industry and public services. The novelty of their approach lies in the use of their experiential and clinical knowledge to make themselves part of the networks of experts on their condition. These groups do not want to be relegated to the role of fund raisers and passive providers of data but are increasingly engaged in the process of producing and circulating knowledge that is critical to their condition.

Facebook Is Not a Adequate Communication Platform - P2P Foundation

Facebook Is Not a Adequate Communication Platform - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"I noticed this trend some years ago, to my own despair. I first noticed it in the way, month by month, the quality of many mailing list discussions deteriorated and then fell mostly silent. I noticed it in how I encountered increasingly vitriolic responses to posts on any topic that exceeded more than a single paragraph. The act of reading was becoming an ever-worsening imposition, making coherent on-line discussion increasingly difficult. In space advocacy forums, people would complain about how no one ever presented any 'plans' for doing anything then, when those plans were posted, those same people would complain about being expected to read them--like you were supposed to reduce every highly technical discussion to a bullet list.

Just What is p2p?

P2P refers to peer-to-peer or person-to-person. In the context of Cooperation2015, it signifies a larger movement or body of thought that we now possess the understanding and technology to reshape our world into a more sustainable, human-oriented set of societies. In this article, I will attempt to list some basics that help define p2p. Here is an interview with Michel Bauwensintroducing the concept of p2p.

Lucky this was found sooner rather than later.

Zhang ZheWei's curator insight, March 1, 2015 3:18 AM

I think that British spy agency trying to steal cryptographic keys is a horrible thing to do as it invaded over billions of people's privacy. Although the intention of the deed might be good as they are trying to create safer environment for the people but it is a wrong thing to do, they are stealing it. Since they are stealing it they will not have much responsible if  the cryptographic keys are made known to the criminals. If that happened it will affect the whole world and disturb our regular life, bringing fear and chaos.

The sharing economy: Airbnb - IT World Canada (blog) | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
In the tech world, the idea of the “sharing economy” is gaining widespread attention. The definition for a sharing economy is essentially a socio-economic system built around the sharing of human and physical resources. These systems, more than ever, are using information technology to empower individuals and companies for the purpose of sharing excess capacity of underutilized assets.

Knowledge Isn’t Power

Knowledge Isn’t Power | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Regular readers know that I sometimes mock “very serious people” — politicians and pundits who solemnly repeat conventional wisdom that sounds tough-minded and realistic. The trouble is that sounding serious and being serious are by no means the same thing, and some of those seemingly tough-minded positions are actually ways to dodge the truly hard issues.

The distributive enterprise as a model for the open hardware economy | P2P Foundation

The distributive enterprise as a model for the open hardware economy | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Our method is open source – but in itself, Open Source is not a business model. It is a development methodology. OSE likes open source because it promotes collaboration, cross-fertilization, and innovation. This also means that a workable business model still has to be developed on top of the open source development method for this process to be viable. Standard business models of monopoly capitalism – which have been designed for secrecy – may not apply. A casual observer may conclude that ‘open source business models do not work because standard models of monopoly capitalism cannot be applied readily’. This view is short sighted – because innovative business models can be created to make open source development work. As a business model solution – OSE is proposing the Distributive Enterprise.
