From Welfare State to Innovation State

From Welfare State to Innovation State | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
PRINCETON – A specter is haunting the world economy – the specter of job-killing technology. How this challenge is met will determine the fate of the world’s market economies and democratic polities, in much the same way that Europe’s response to the rise of the socialist movement during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries shaped the course of subsequent history.

Abstracts - UPF-DTIC Research Seminars 2014-2015 | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Common-based peer production (CBPP) is an emerging and innovative model of collaborative production, frequently taking place or supported through a digital platform. It aggregates a set of diverse areas of activity and cases that tend to be characterized by peer to peer relationships, and/or results in the (generally) open access provision of common resources that favour access, reproducibility and derivativeness. Well known cases are Free and Open Software projects, Wikipedia, or more recent cases such as Wikispeed, Open Source Ecology or open data commons. The presentation will first provide an overview of the phenomenon based on empirical insights regarding what characterize CBPP and how it has expanded and evolved over time. One of the characteristics of CBPP is its limited mercantile character. This point to the limitations of traditional theories of value (based on prizing) to explain value in CBPP. In this regard, the presentation will present a framework to approach value creation in CBPP, as well as empirical evidence on which factors (particularly regarding governance modality) might explain cases capacity to generate value. The research is developed in the frame of the European project P2Pvalue. The methodology is based on an statistical analysis of a sample of 300 cases. Project website: www.p2pvalue.eu

Issue #6: Disruption and the Law » Journal of Peer Production

Issue #6: Disruption and the Law » Journal of Peer Production | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The disruption caused by new technologies and non-conventional methods of organisation – from a Western perspective at least – have posed challenges for the law, confronting regulators with the need to balance justice and an appreciation of new realities with powerful interests and existing paradigms. Experience from the “disruptions” of the late twentieth century has shown that the response from incumbent industries can lead to a period of intense litigation and lobbying for laws that will maintain the status quo. For example, following its “Napster moment”, the music industry fought to maintain its grip on distribution channels through increased copyright enforcement and the longer copyright terms it managed to extract from the legislative process. The newspaper industry has similarly seen its historical revenue stream of classified ads disrupted by more efficient online listings, and responded to its own failure to capitalise on online advertising by launching legal campaigns against Google News in various European countries.

“During periods of mobilisation and effective social change, people feel a sense of empowerment, the ability to express themselves, a sense of authenticity and de-repression or dis-alienation which can act as an effective treatment for depression and psychological problems; a kind of peak experience. It is what sustains political activity.

Neil Thapar first encountered seed issues in law school when he worked with the Center for Food Safety against genetically-modified food. But it was a season spent working on an organic farm in Santa Cruz, California when he began to understand, first-hand, the importance of seeds as a foundation of our agricultural system. He explains, “When I came off the farm I said, ‘If I’m going to be a lawyer, I’m going to be a lawyer doing things that I think are making a positive difference.’”

What if you could build a civilization from scratch, using tools that could also be built from scratch? In his talk “Open-sourced blueprints for civilization” at TED2011, Marcin Jakubowski introduced the Global Village Construction Set, open-source blueprints that would essentially allow anyone with a heap of scrap metal — and a few production tools — to make 50 machines covering all the needs of a basic civilization: agriculture, energy, transportation and production.

“This book is an exploration of the new forms of social movements and protests that are erupting in the world today, from the Arab uprisings to the indignadas movement in Spain, and the Occupy Wall Street movement in the US. While these and similar social movements differ in many important ways, there is one thing they share in common: they are all interwoven inextricably with the creation of autonomous communication networks supported by the Internet and wireless communication.
