Transition Proposals Towards a Commons-Oriented Economy and Society

In the context of the Ecuadorian transition project towards a open commons-based knowledge society, see Floksociety.org, and to complement the prior analysis of three competing economic models in the age of peer production, I have formulated some transition proposals, on how to get from Phase 2, emerging peer production in the context of the dominance of cognitive and financial capitalism, to Phase 3, a mature peer production economy associated with a ethical economy and a partner state.

Hackathons for the rest of us - Computerworld Australia

Hackathons, of course, are organized marathon hacking sessions with rules, goals and prizes. Conceptually, they are reminiscent of county fairs, except what's submitted to the judges was created during the event. Hackathon organizers could be hoping to get developers to play with a new interface they are introducing, or write apps for a new phone they are producing -- or the idea might be to just have fun, with no particular agenda.

Artist emphasizes collaboration - Yale Daily News (blog)

Artist emphasizes collaboration - Yale Daily News (blog) | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

In front of roughly 20 members of the school’s community, Humphrey outlined a narrative tracing his evolution as an artist. The art critic, who also dabbles in music, described the changing nature of his work relating to the concepts of inter-subjectivity, collaboration and voice. During the lecture, Humphrey shared slides of his work and explained the creative process behind each piece — which his colleagues at the Art School said he did with honesty and openness uncharacteristic of many in the profession.

The move has the potential to shake up the nascent online education market and give the elite business school a toehold  in the world of MOOCs, or massive open online courses.  It’s a high-stakes gamble for HBS, which has one of the world’s best-known—and carefully burnished—educational brands.

28 Ingenious Solutions To Our Climate Woes - Co.Exist

28 Ingenious Solutions To Our Climate Woes - Co.Exist | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Three years ago, MIT's Climate CoLab attempted an ambitious feat: crowdsourcing an international climate agreement, with the results presented to the U.N., Congress, and the Department of Energy. The 2011 entrants were given a different challenge (figuring out how to evolve the economy to deal with climate change), but with the same promise of presenting ideas to influential governmental organizations. This was back in the good old days when people still had a shred of hope that national governments could come to some sort of reasonable climate agreement. Those days are long gone.

Capitalism: People, Planet, Profit & Principles | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"Economics, and indeed human civilization, can only be measured and calibrated in terms of human beings.  Everything in economics has to be adjusted for people, first, and abandoning the illusory numerical analyses that inevitably put numbers ahead of people, capitalism ahead of democracy, and degradation ahead of compassion."

It's a brave, new, ultra-connected world, and companies that don't embrace the new principles of openness and transparency risk alienating millennial employees and missing out on key sources of innovation and revenue.

FABMoney: a p2p currency for collaboration in FabLabs | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

At Maker Faire Rome 2013 I gave a short presentation about Open Design during the main opening conference, but I also gave another presentation during a small conference about FabLabs and Peer-to-Peer Economy. I preferred to wait a bit and talk about it in a separate post, since it covers a project that I started by accident in 2012 but that I would like to develop further: FABMoney.

Open Source Hard Ware, a definition and a statement of principles - Wired

Open Source Hard Ware, a definition and a statement of principles - Wired | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Open source hardware is hardware whose design is made publicly available so that anyone can study, modify, distribute, make, and sell the design or hardware based on that design. The hardware’s source, the design from which it is made, is available in the preferred format for making modifications to it. Ideally, open source hardware uses readily-available components and materials, standard processes, open infrastructure, unrestricted content, and open-source design tools to maximize the ability of individuals to make and use hardware. Open source hardware gives people the freedom to control their technology while sharing knowledge and encouraging commerce through the open exchange of designs.

There’s a debate going on inside the Hadoop community. On one side are open source purists who believe that data infrastructure software should be free and open with revenue generated solely from services. On the other side of the debate are those who feel the only viable long-term business model is selling proprietary software built on top of an open core.

The Wisdom of the Mob - Santa Barbara Independent | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Ancient Greece is rightly known as the cradle of democracy. Athens was ruled for centuries through a type of democracy in which regular people rotated through the various democratic institutions, doing their civic duty to help make the right decisions for all Athenians. Athens was far from democratic in a modern sense because many residents were slaves and could not take part in the democratic process. Nor could women.

From Fringe to Mainstream: What's the Future of the Sharing/Collaborative Economy? | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The Sharing Economy is a topic that has been garnering a lot of attention lately -- from startups embracing the collaborative model to consumers embracing the age old “sharing is caring” philosophy when it comes to vacation rentals, like AirBnB, or transportation solutions like NYC’s Citibike or Zipcar. We at sparks & honey have seen real value in the sharing economy trend as of late and recently partnered with global digital agency, Tribal Worldwide, to host the Collaborative Economy Summit, in which we set out to gather thought leaders in this space an answer one simple question -- where is the Collaborative Economy heading and what value will it bring to business, brands and customers of the future?
