The Anthrobscene — University of Minnesota Press

The Anthrobscene — University of Minnesota Press | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Smartphones, laptops, tablets, and e-readers all at one time held the promise of a more environmentally healthy world not dependent on paper and deforestation. The result of our ubiquitous digital lives is, as we see in The Anthrobscene, actually quite the opposite: not ecological health but an environmental wasteland, where media never die. Jussi Parikka critiques corporate and human desires as a geophysical force, analyzing the material side of the earth as essential for the existence of media and introducing the notion of an alternative deep time in which media live on in the layer of toxic waste we will leave behind as our geological legacy.

I recently asked my taxi driver what he thought of Uber. His response?: “I love it, it costs me an arm and a leg to rent this taxi. I’ve been driving for 8 hours already and haven’t earned enough yet to cover the overhead of renting this taxi from the owner. The next four hours of my night are crucial to me making a profit.”

Why the Kurdish Struggle for Democratic Confederalism is so important for all of us | P2P Foundation

Why the Kurdish Struggle for Democratic Confederalism is so important for all of us | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
“What is novel about the Kurdish struggle for self-determination is its very definition of self-determination. The concept, when applied to nations, is generally taken to mean the right of nations to secede and form states of their own, but the Kurds see it differently. Many believe an experiment in democratic confederalism is what the region really needs.

Video: The Open Source Solar Pocket Factory | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
“Shawn Frayne and Alex Hornstein, two young inventors based in the Philippines, are taking their passion for clean free energy and developing a way to make it accessible and cheap for everyone. These guys are working restlessly to provide a product that could be used by practically anyone to make homemade solar panels. The factory is small enough to fit on a desktop and efficient enough to produce 300k to one million panels per year, up to one every 15 seconds. By cutting out much of the labor intensive process, which represents 50% of the total cost, this machine can dramatically reduce the price of solar. Their pocket solar panel producer can change the way the world views electricity.”

Breaking the Local Funding Tool Kit

Breaking the Local Funding Tool Kit | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Neighborhood Economics is about when we all come and realize our impact and start using a new story to run our economy; starting with community and dropping the metaphor of empire, with the market as its ravening wolf bringing the best stuff back to the few. Instead, we bring our whole, messy selves to the enterprise of living together and thriving on this planet together.

Capital without Capitalism: A Currency Design Perspective | P2P Foundation

Capital without Capitalism: A Currency Design Perspective | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
In the capitalist model, capital accumulates as ‘surplus value’ following a production process supervised by the capitalist, with labour as a key input. The resulting tension between capital and labour is a fundamental aspect of capitalism, though it has become rather less visible in the past 40 years, as ‘free-market’ economics has progressively favoured capital over labour. Globalisation has helped capital to become way more mobile than labour, in the process limiting the bargaining power of the employed.
