Integral Options Cafe: Michel Bauwens - Proposed Next Steps for the Emerging P2P and Commons Networks

Integral Options Cafe: Michel Bauwens - Proposed Next Steps for the Emerging P2P and Commons Networks | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
In short, we need a alliance of the commons to project civil and political power and influence at every level of society; we need phyles to strengthen our economic autonomy from the profit-maximizing dominant system; and we need Chambre of the Commons to achieve territorial policy; legal and infrastructural conditions for the alternative, human and nature-friendly political economy to thrive. Neither alone is sufficient, but together they could be a powerful triad for the necessary phase transition.

Shareable: Is Seoul the Next Great Sharing City?

Shareable: Is Seoul the Next Great Sharing City? | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Imagine this scenario: You wake up in a bustling city and have breakfast with the guest you rented your spare room to. You then ride in a shared car to your job where you give tours of the city to out-of-towners. On your lunch hour you participate in a public transportation flash mob and after work you swing by a tool sharing center to finish a project. Once home, you enjoy a community meal at your neighbor’s apartment and spend the evening packing for a trip using borrowed luggage that you found via your smartphone.

Reading notes: The peer economy according to investors, analysts, journalists | MIT Center for Civic Media | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Along with interviewing and hanging out in the peer economy, I've been reading voraciously since the beginning of the year. The goal of my thesis research is not to publish another version of existing information but to createinformation that is useful in the world of practice. To understand the landscape, I've been reading a lot of literature for context. The first wave of publications and output I've explored are by analysts and investors like Rachel Botsman's What's Mine is Yours and Lisa Gansky's The Mesh. Many of their thoughts are echoed by articles in mainstream media beginning to broach the peer economy.

Bruce Sterling: "From Beyond the Coming Age of Networked Matter," a short story - Boing Boing | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

In 2013 at Institute for the Future, the non-profit forecasting thinktank where I'm a researcher, we explored what we're calling the Coming Age of Networked Matter. Over the next few decades, a confluence of breakthroughs in physics, engineering, biology, computation, and complexity science will give us new lenses to observe the wondrous interconnections surrounding us and within us. In the future we’re moving toward, we won’t only observe complex systems, we’ll also modify and even create them in vivo and with purpose. It will be an era of huge possibility, daunting pitfalls, and high weirdness

Could a Sharing Economy Transform Saudi Arabia? - Collaborative Consumption

Could a Sharing Economy Transform Saudi Arabia? - Collaborative Consumption | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

A region of the world that was historically renowned for sharing and trading goods and services without a medium of exchange now suffers one of the highest consumption (or I should say, over-consumption) rates in the world. It also has one of the largest carbon footprints in the world; Gulf states rank  1st, 4th, 6th and 8th for carbon dioxide emission per capita. It makes sense for countries where oil is cheap, yet this makes the region ripe for disruption by a sharing economy.

“Collaborative services experiencing a surge in Italy. Much ink is being spilled by the media about this growing movement. The radio does its part, too, by making people aware of this new phenomenon born out of economic necessity. Further still, there are a growing number of conferences on the theme, covering a fairly broad range of topics full of start-up stories. The debate will no doubt intensify in the coming months.

Lemonade stands may appear on the surface to be simply about selling lemonade, but it is a lot more dynamic when you look deeper. There is producer side which produces the key ingredients.

Too Many Secrets? On Sneakers, and the NSA - TIME | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty-Four is the most famous fictional work about omnipresent government surveillance and its myriad risks. Yet, an often-overlooked movie from 1992 provides even more prescient insights into the modern surveillance state, especially recently revealed National Security Agency collection programs.

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is one of the world’s largest and most respected centers for scientific research. On any given day, 3000 CERN-related video connections may occur over Vidyo; some of the meetings are hosting hundreds of users in a single call joining from a variety of personal desktops, mobile devices and room systems. The infrastructure is also being used by more than 300 H.323 room systems either at CERN or in partner institutes.
