I've been collecting URLs related to "Sharing Economy" for nearly ten years at http://delicious.com/hrheingold/sharing_economy -- and now we're seeing it kick into high gear. Technology lowers barriers to collective action (smart mobs) and also lowers barriers to sharing (sharing economy). -- Howard
"As the sharing economy picks up momentum, its reach has become global. In cities and towns around the world, people are creating ways to share everything from baby clothes to boats, hardware to vacation homes. There are also groups emerging that consciously identify with the big-picture sharing movement. These groups focus on education, action and community-building, and advocate for a cultural shift toward widespread sharing.
From neighborhood-level cooperatives to global organizations, these groups work to bring sharing into the mainstream. They see sharing as a new paradigm; a means to a more democratic society, and they understand that sharing is not a new fad but an ancient practice that technology is reinvigorating."

On Oct 29, 2012, the European Central Bank (ECB) released an official (and very nicely prepared) report called “Virtual Currency Schemes.” The 55-page report looks at several facets of what virtual currencies are, how they’re being used, and what they can do.
ºººº I personally don´t use bitcoins but I am very interested on the experiences of people that do and the social fenomena. It is opening path for other currencies. From what I read in the article the ECB is still in a very narrow definition of what currencies are but broad enough to make a good research ººº Do you use bitcoins? Tell me about it.
