Video of the Day: David Karpf on the Netroots Effect - Blog | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

“Karpf walked his audience through an examination of internet age advocacy organizations: examining their effectiveness in running campaigns; how they run campaigns as compared to legacy advocacy groups such as the Sierra Club (an organization that predates the internet by nearly 100 years); and what the future of the netroots movements means for the future of all who are involved in advocacy work. Karpf, who served on the Sierra Club board of directors in graduate school, came equipped with a perspective that combines the physical experience of his grassroots campaign work and the intellectual experience of meticulously mapping the behavior and patterns of online groups such as DailyKos and MoveOn.

What type of leadership will be required to succeed in this new business world, created by the Networked Society? This society will see new market spaces, where cross-industry companies will compete.

Don Cloud's curator insight, August 17, 2013 9:22 PM

In my experiences, the "net generation" craves leadership and is just as capable of producing great leaders as any other.  The truth is -- leaders know how to connect to those they lead ... and the ever-growing networked culture provides additional opportunities for those connections.

Meet the Investors of the Collaborative Economy | Web Strategy by Jeremiah Owyang | Social Media, Web Marketing | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

As part of my ongoing research as an Industry Analyst on the Collaborative Economy (read all the posts), we’ve looked at market drivers, the market challenges, corporations who have jumped in, provided a list of startups, and published a definitive report called The Collaborative Economy, we will now delve together into understanding the funding aspect of this growing movement. Initially, we obtained a list of 200 startups (appropriately using a Taskrabbit, I might add) in order to get a sample, I recently published an infographic helping to tease out the patterns in this of sample, and now want to expose some additional data around the force that funds this space.

I picked this up from the wonderful p2p Foundation wiki about open source manufacturing, interesting to me as principle 3 of No Straight Lines in Open and Openness – Openness is resilience.  I came across the idea and practice of open manufacturing when writing the book, exploring how far openness as a principle and practice can take us, and how it can play a key role in the transformational re-design of business – which is how I found Local Motors [The radical re-design of business].

Selected Citations on Peer Property and Common(s) Ownership

Selected Citations on Peer Property and Common(s) Ownership | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

“The commons breaks with the individualistic vision as conceived by the capitalist tradition, a vision that has progressively transferred the idea of rights to individual people. The commons take inclusion and everyone’s equal right to access as its starting point, while property and the idea of the state that upholds it is based on a rivalry of goods, and thus on exclusion and concentration of power in institutions that insure and protect it. The commons try to situate themselves outside the subject-object reductionism that would lead to their commodification. The commons cannot be commodified (because they cannot be transferred, or alienated), and they cannot be the object of individualised possession. And so they express a qualitative logic, not a quantitative one. We do not ‘have’ a common good, we ‘form part of’ the common good, in that we form part of an ecosystem, of a system of relations in an urban or rural environment; the subject is part of the object. Common goods are inseparably united, and they unite people as well as communities and the ecosystem itself.”
