Shareable: A Free Beginner's Guide to the Sharing Economy

Shareable: A Free Beginner's Guide to the Sharing Economy | world as cohabitat | Scoop.it

It's one of the first things we learn as kids: How to share.

But this practice usually fades as we become adults. Our houses become filled with our own “stuff.” Garages, attics, basements, and closets transform into cluttered warehouses. When we need something, whether it’s a chainsaw or a roasting rack, our first thought is to go out and buy it. But why get it new when our neighbor down the street has one we can borrow?

Shareable: Blueprint for P2P Society: The Partner State & Ethical Economy

Shareable: Blueprint for P2P Society: The Partner State & Ethical Economy | world as cohabitat | Scoop.it

A new way to produce is emerging. By this I mean: a new way to produce anything and everything, whether it is software, food, or cities. What once required rigid organisations and a society defined by the mentality of hierarchies, we are discovering now (and in many cases re-discovering) how to do through free association of peers.

openp2pdesign.org » Business Models for Open Hardware | world as cohabitat | Scoop.it

Few months ago, Platoniq commissioned me a report about business models for Open Hardware, DIY Craft and Fab Labs, for their crowdfunding project Goteo. It is now available in Spanish from Platoniq’s YouCoop website, and here in English, under a Creative Commons license (see below).

Sacred Economics traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, revealing how the money system has contributed to alienation, competition, and scarcity, destroyed community, and necessitated endless growth.
