Collaborative consumption is dead, long live the real sharing economy

Collaborative consumption is dead, long live the real sharing economy | Sociological imagination | Scoop.it

"So it’s not so much that collaborative consumption is dead, it’s more that it risks dying as it gets absorbed by the “Borg” and its mindless minions of capitalism. Nothing new or special here, of course. As a recent Atlantic Cities feature concluded, collaborative consumption is just more efficient, which isn’t all bad. In a recent Economist cover story, Tim O’Reilly says this loss of revolutionary potential is inevitable. He’s wrong, though. It’s only inevitable if a company takes VC money. It’s really just a decision.

This is where the real sharing economy comes in. It is more than just VC-backed Internet startups. It’s a tectonic shift in how the economy works. As society changes from a top-down factory model of organization to a peer-to-peer network model, how we produce, consume, and interact will be radically transformed. At its simplest, the sharing economy is the decentralization of economic power brought on by new technology, new and revived business models, and massive social change. It’s made up of thousands of innovations, some for profit, some nonprofit, and some that thrive in the commons.

If we can avert our collective gaze from our latest technology gadgets for a second, we might be able to see the real sharing economy, the one driven by values and tested by time.

Below are some of the most important and overlooked parts of it:"

Co-operation vs. Competition (vs. Collaboration)

Co-operation vs. Competition (vs. Collaboration) | Sociological imagination | Scoop.it

"For cooperation to happen, we need to be participating transparently with the idea that others can build upon what we share, reshare it, curate it, connect it or whatever else. In that vein, it’s why we need to promote a “network literacy” that supports our ability to find, analyze, synthesize and share information and knowledge in safe, effective and ethical ways."

This is specifically about cooperation in education. When I first started using social media in education, I learned a lot from Will Richardson, who wrote this postl His writing about personal learning networks is key.

“Aspettavamo tutti il 1984. Venne, ma la profezia non si avverò; gli americani più riflessivi tirarono un sospiro di sollievo, congratulandosi per lo scampato pericolo. La democrazia aveva resistito. Altrove nel mondo forse c’è stato il terrore; a noi furono risparmiati gli incubi di Orwell. Avevamo dimenticato che, oltre alla visione infernale di Orwell, qualche anno prima c’è n’era stata un’altra, forse meno nota anche se altrettanto raggelante: quella del Mondo Nuovo di Aldous Huxley. Contrariamente a un’opinione diffusa anche tra le persone colte, Huxley e Orwell non avevano profetizzato le stesse cose. Orwell immagina che saremo sopraffatti da un dittatore. Nella visione di Huxley non sarà il Grande Fratello a toglierci l’autonomia, la cultura e la storia. La gente sarà felice di essere oppressa e adorerà la tecnologia che libera dalla fatica di pensare. Orwell temeva che i libri sarebbero stati banditi; Huxley, non che i libri fossero vietati, ma che non ci fosse più nessuno desideroso di leggerli. Orwell temeva coloro che ci avrebbero privato delle informazioni; Huxley, quelli che ce ne avrebbero date troppe, fino a ridurci alla passività e all’egoismo. Orwell temeva che la nostra sarebbe stata una civiltà di schiavi; Huxley, che sarebbe stata una cultura cafonesca, ricca solo di sensazioni e bambinate. Nel Ritorno al mondo nuovo, i libertari e i razionalisti - sempre pronti ad opporsi al tiranno – «non tennero conto che gli uomini hanno un appetito pressoché insaziabile di distrazioni». In 1984, aggiunge Huxley, la gente è tenuta sotto controllo con le punizioni; nel Mondo nuovo, con i piaceri. In breve, Orwell temeva che saremmo stati distrutti da ciò che odiamo, Huxley, da ciò che amiamo. Il mio libro si basa sulla probabilità che abbia ragione Huxley, e non Orwell”
(Neil Postman, Divertirsi da morire, Premessa, pp. 15-16)

[INFOGRAPHIC] An Overview of the Principles of Adult Learning

[INFOGRAPHIC] An Overview of the Principles of Adult Learning | Sociological imagination | Scoop.it

By Nicole Legault

 

"After humming and hawing I decided that my third instructional design/learning themed infographic would be the Principles of Adult Learning. Now, I will be honest and say that while I knew a few principles (adults have experience, adults like control over their learning experiences, etc.) I was lacking in my overall knowledge in that area. Creating an infographic is a great cure to this. I need to research, read articles and gather the appropriate information. Then I have to boil it down to its most simple form and try to find visuals that represent what I am trying to communicate. Anyways, it’s a good learning process.

I

"thought I would jump online and quickly find the “list” of the 6 adult learning principles, or whatever. No such list exists. After much reading I have come to find out that there is no actual official consensus on what the principles of adult learning are. Many are generally agreed upon, but there is still much theoretical debate going on for each proposed principle.

 

"So here’s my disclaimer: there is no proven adult learning theory and the information in the infographic below is subject to much debate and differing opinions."

Does Evolution Favor Competition or Cooperation? Ask an Anarchist Jailbird Prince.

Does Evolution Favor Competition or Cooperation? Ask an Anarchist Jailbird Prince. | Sociological imagination | Scoop.it

"Darwin’s publication of On the Origin of Species sparked major battles. The most famous may have been between science and religion, but there were disputes within science as well. One of the most heated was whether natural selection favored cooperative or competitive behaviors, a battle that still rages today. For almost 100 years, no single person did more to promote the study of the evolution of cooperation than Peter Kropotkin.
Kropotkin traveled the world talking about the evolution of cooperation, which he called “mutual aid,” in both animals and humans."
