Why pushing for a paywall at the Washington Post completely misses the point - GigaOM | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Udacity may or may not survive, but as with Napster, there’s no containing the story it tells: “It’s possible to educate a thousand people at a time, in a single class, all around the world, for free.” To a traditional academic, this sounds like crazy talk. Earlier this fall, a math instructor writing under the pen name Delta enrolled in Thrun’s Statistics 101 class, and, after experiencing it first-hand, concluded that the course was

Are Coops Outdated in a Network Age? | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

“I think the coop is as outdated as the corporation. It adds more democratic processes into our economy, and democratizing the economy will definitely have an impact on our governance systems, making our representative “democracy” more democratic. But coops aren’t well- equipped to extract value from the long tail, which is the core of the new p2p paradigm. They are boxes with well-defined boundaries, NOT networks.

Increasingly competitive economic conditions and growing social concerns force us to search for new ways of living and connecting with one another. In the past few years, this shift in consumer behaviour has created a concept known as the “sharing economy,” “collaborative consumption” or the “peer-to-peer marketplace.” It has become a hot area for tech entrepreneurs, led by the successes of Airbnb, Zip Car and Kickstarter.
