Economic Justice Emerges as Central Theme of the SHARE Conference

Economic Justice Emerges as Central Theme of the SHARE Conference | Sharing Economy | Scoop.it
Co-authored by Neal Gorenflo and Cat Johnson
This week there was a meeting of sharing minds in San Francisco as Peers and SOCAP presented the first SHARE Conference. 
Beth Kanter's insight:

My key takeaway is that the sharing economy is a mighty wave that can’t be stopped. But, it’s vitally important that we make sure that wave gives a ride to everyone, not just those who can afford to hop a ride on it. And SHARE might have catalyzed more action toward this. The weird confluence of tech, money, and economic justice made for a rarified atmosphere. It is at such odd intersections that big changes are often made. SHARE may go down as the moment when Silicon Valley started to think seriously about how to solve wealth inequality.

Will the Sharing Economy accelerate "data philanthropy" for companies with robust platforms?

Will the Sharing Economy accelerate "data philanthropy" for companies with robust platforms? | Sharing Economy | Scoop.it
Beth Kanter's insight:

Lucy Bernholz reflects on the Share Conference


Sharing companies with robust digital platforms have really interesting digital data that could be of use to researchers, policy makers and government officials. Want information on current transporation patterns (Lyft, Uber, Car share, bikeshare)? Want information on tourism patterns (Airbnb, Homeaway)? Want to look at structural racism, affordable housing or daycare, or gender and safety issues? (analyze use patterns from any of the aforementioned). Will these companies hold the data back and fight subpoenas from AGs offices? Will they negotiate with users to release data for public use? Are these data sets part of the "public benefit" potential of these companies and will they argue such when the inevitable battles between nonprofit and for-profit versions of home or car sharing services arise? Can cities and sharing companies strike pro-active data sharing deals that protect users privacy, inform public policy, and benefit communities - without going to court?

Nonprofits Imagine a Better Sharing Economy - The TechSoup Blog - Community - TechSoup | Sharing Economy | Scoop.it
Beth Kanter's insight:

Daniel Ben-Horin left a good comment here: 

"This is a really good post. It gets at a fundamental tension within the sharing economy -- that economic gain is built upon access to the Commons. To be very fair, the Commons is rarely organized efficiently without someone being motivated by gain. All those rooms being offered via airbnb...all those cars being 'shared' by Lyft drivers....they all existed before airbnb and Lyft, just as the knowledge and neighborliness of Nextdoor existed before Nextdoor. But it didn't coalesce without entrepreneurs dreaming of IPOs. This post challenges us to think about whether nonprofits--or other not for profit oriented entities--can organize the Commons with a greater emphasis on the sharing and less on the IPO."

PHILANTHROPY 2173: SHARE 2014

PHILANTHROPY 2173: SHARE 2014 | Sharing Economy | Scoop.it
Beth Kanter's insight:

Reflections from Lucy Bernholz who has been tracking the sharing economy for a long time and offers some great insights.


  • Everything old is new again - and that's good and bad. Rebranding co-ops as #Tcorporations (they're managed under section T of the tax code) will make them sexy to social entrepreneurs and that's OK. What's really interesting is not how iPhones are rejuvenating a 500 year old business model, but how the confluence of this phenomenon, along with crowdfunding, MIGHT lead to the growth of mutually beneficial workplaces and worked owned governance structures (e.g. coops) - (the MIGHT is intentional, I've only drunk a small bit of the crowdfunding and sharing kool aid)
  • Real attention to creating new ownership models and new finance structures - that might distribute wealth in new ways - is exciting. And there's lots of innovation in the sharing space.


  • Sharing and mutual aid are longstanding traditions, often used by the marginalized who can't get access to mainstream systems of finance, credit, or asset growth. So far, most digital sharing platform companies seem to be, as one participant noted, "helping skilled workers with assets in the developed world get more." The response - "It doesn't have to be that way." OK - I'll but that, it doesn't have to be that way - but it's not magically going to be anything else unless we work to make it something else. Who and how is that going to happen?

You Say Bitcoin Has No Intrinsic Value? Twenty-two Reasons to Think Again. - Bitcoin Magazine | Sharing Economy | Scoop.it

An intrinsic theory of value (also called theory of objective value) is any theory of value in economics which holds that the value of an object, good or service, is intrinsic or contained in the item itself. Most such theories look to the process of producing an item, and the costs involved in that process, as a measure of the item’s intrinsic value.
