The myth of 'anti-politics' - Policy Network

The myth of 'anti-politics' - Policy Network | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Mainstream parties will continue to see their foundations crumble in future years as they enter existential territory. This is far from “anti-politics”. We are living in intensely political times, where a tech-enabled civic democracy is flourishing and new political forms are driven by the emergent individualism of Europe's people, particularly its young

The Tao of the Apocalypse

The Tao of the Apocalypse | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
A few nights ago I had a dream that would fall under the category of post apocalyptic.  It took place in the present day, at my house, on what appeared to be a bright sunny summer day.  My son and I were out back by the garage getting trailers hooked up to our bikes, collecting baseball bats and machetes, cans of food, and other supplies that have now left my memory.  What the cause of our hasty retreat was I also can’t recall, but I knew we had to get going fast.

The emergence of dynamic ownership | P2P Foundation

The emergence of dynamic ownership | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Reddit’s CEO, Yishan Wong (formerly of Facebook) is doing the right thing. He’s planning to make Reddit’s users into owners, depending on their contribution to the site. There’s a way to create a form of liquid ownership that doesn’t require Wall Street. This new method is based on the bitcoin blockchain. That technology makes it possible to issue ownership to contributors in a decentralized and trusted way. The combination of blockchain stock, Yishan’s example, and the experience of participants will set in motion a wave of change in Silicon Valley. The message is: if you want to build an online company, you better find a way to make your customers/contributors owners.*

Book of the Day: On Catholics and Software | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
“This ebook collects, all in one place, my main writings from 2005 to 2013 on a specific topic: //how Catholics should choose and use software, digital standards and other digital technologies//. Please note that, while I usually write “Catholics” here, I believe that most of this ebook applies to all other Christians, and to many other religions too. As far as I know, there was almost nothing in this field when I started, and the situation today is almost the same.

Mapping the Common Based Peer Production: A crowd sourcing experiment | P2PValue

Mapping the Common Based Peer Production: A crowd sourcing experiment | P2PValue | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Commons-based peer production (CBPP) is an emerging and innovative model of collaborative production. It usually takes place through a digital platform (Benkler 2006). It is characterized by peer to peer relationships, in contrast to the traditionally hierarchical command and contractual relationships, and with limited mercantile exchange. It results in the (generally) open access provision of commons resources (P2Pvalue, 2014).

Changing Society Without Taking Power | P2P Foundation

Changing Society Without Taking Power | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

“It is important to understand Holloway’s brilliant double entendre “taking power.” Taking power is not just the taking “of” state power but the collective power of society’s hierarchical structure to “take” – appropriate – the commonly created wealth, including the commons of the natural world. The capitalist economic system controls not just the means of production – labor – but the means of survival, i.e. food, shelter, information, safety, community etc.
