Building a Regional Commons in Southeast Asia - P2P Foundation

Building a Regional Commons in Southeast Asia - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"Southeast Asia is a region in rapid economic, social, political and cultural transition. Both state-led development and an increasingly liberalized market economy have characterized the region’s development trajectory. There also exists, however, a long tradition of sharing - and contesting - various “commons” between people, communities, and countries. These commons include the spheres of: the economy; the social and societal; nature and natural resources; culture and knowledge; and the digital domain.

The Sharing Economy (Slightly) Increases Economic Growth While Lowering ... - Triple Pundit | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

We usually talk about the sharing economy on three levels – the company, the sector and the “change.” On the company level, we generally analyze specific companies like Airbnb or Zipcar and how they disrupt the markets they operate within. On the sector level, we look into evaluations of the size and potential growth of the sharing sector. The “change” level includes mostly qualitative observations on the extent to which the sharing economy can revolutionize our lifestyle andchange the business landscape.

Essay of the Day: Sustainability and Governance in Developing Open Source Projects

Essay of the Day: Sustainability and Governance in Developing Open Source Projects | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

“Daniel Curto-Millet, a doctoral student at the London School of Economics and Political Science in the United Kingdom encourages us to ontologically redefine sustainability. His study of openEHR and the Opereffa framework have shown him how sustainability is not a state that is stable (even in its desire for stability), but instead sustainability is a process where the multitude of actors, artefacts, archetypes, and so on, and are all in constant flux. He thus feels we need to conceptualize sustainability in a manner that allows us to make sense of it processually – in other words, as in “becoming” (Deleuze and Guattari, 1987). In order to be able to do this, he draws our attention to everyday negotiations, working outs, and engagements that openEHR and its larger ecosystem perform with and within to achieve a more detailed understanding of sustaining (and not sustainability).”

Production, not consumption; Economics of the Commons, not Sharing Economics | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

By severing cooperativism from its communal origins and and focusing on consumption, British cooperativism and the ICA caused lasting damage to the transformative capacity of cooperativism, which we should not repeat today in the debate between the economy of the commons and collaborative consumption.

Open Source License Selection in Relation to Business Models | TIM Review

Open Source License Selection in Relation to Business Models | TIM Review | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

This article provides recent research results from the European Union's FLOSSMetrics project. The results focus on the business and practical aspects of the adoption of open source within software products or as a basis of service offerings. Research into free/libre open source software (F/LOSS) is usually conducted with a software engineering focus or with an emphasis on F/LOSS as a spontaneous or directed collaboration effort. The FLOSSMetrics project expanded that research with an investigation on how licenses, business models, and project choices affect development and productization. This article provides a summary of common licensing issues and business models choices in F/LOSS, and it provides a list of recommendations for selecting a license for a software project to suit both business objectives and licensing constraints.

What do Voltaire and Social Media Have in Common? - INSEAD Knowledge | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

If Voltaire’s precept was destined to guide his readers to find happiness, it is also very well suited for companies in search of new social media successes. Indeed, a common trait among many of the recent successful social media campaigns is companies’ ability to create and sustain an online culture around their brands – in other words, their ability to “cultivate their own garden”.

Core Peer-2-Peer Collaboration Principles - P2P Foundation

Core Peer-2-Peer Collaboration Principles - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

P2P should evolve to meet whatever needs peers have in building a commons or similar works. Perhaps the term or whole concept of P2P will be subsumed by other ideas or become irrelevant for one reason or another over time. For now, P2P implies some conceptual elements to many who work to advance its ideals and to research its elements, and there is value in setting down such details even if they often do not apply to a number of particular instances.
