The Story of MIT-Fablab Norway: Community Embedding of Peer Production » Journal of Peer Production

The Story of MIT-Fablab Norway: Community Embedding of Peer Production » Journal of Peer Production | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Material peer production (‘fabbing’ and ‘making’) is made possible to more and more citizens by the proliferation of shared makerspaces. Fab Labs have their own distinct network and identity, but they are often grouped together with makerspaces and hackerspaces in studies that examine making, whether conceptual or commercial. However, Fab Labs have the opportunity to share information, resources and projects globally within the Fab Lab network, which differentiates them from independent makerspaces. We focus on Fab Labs in this paper as we relate the story of one seminal Lab that was instrumental in the history of the Fab Lab network and remains an integral part of the network’s mythology, MIT-Fablab Norway.

More money than Thor - The Economist

More money than Thor - The Economist | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

NORWEGIANS are different from you and me: they have more money. Norway’s general election on September 9th sounded many of the familia themes of elections everywhere. Erna Solberg, a Conservative, beat Jens Stoltenberg, the Labour prime minister, partly by offering a new face and lower taxes. But as Ms Solberg begins to run the country she will be confronted by a very different problem from most of her fellow world leaders: not how to make ends meet but how to manage abundance.

How Swedes and Norwegians broke the power of the ‘1 percent’ - Waging Nonviolence

How Swedes and Norwegians broke the power of the ‘1 percent’ - Waging Nonviolence | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
While many of us are working to ensure that the Occupy movement will have a lasting impact, it’s worthwhile to consider other countries where masses of people succeeded in nonviolently bringing about a high degree of democracy and economic justice. Sweden and Norway, for example, both experienced a major power shift in the 1930s after …

Norwegian Music Industry in the Age of Digitalization - P2P Foundation

Norwegian Music Industry in the Age of Digitalization - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The authors have through this research determined that the artists in the Norwegian recording industry have 4 main sources of income: live revenue, state subsidization and grants, collection distributed to artists, and sales of music physically and digitally. It turned out the declining record sales, which dominate the media picture, only amounted to about 19% of the total artist income in 1999. Today after many years of decline it is 11% of the total income for artists. As such the media were right to point out that record sales are dropping and income will decline, however the total importance of this income source was never more than 20%. This is a reflection of the calculations that from a record sold from producer to retailer, only about 20% in average of the sales amount is returned to the record artists. Live revenue on the other hand has an artist share of about 50% from all income and hence all income increases here will have a larger effect both negatively and positively if the total amount in the industry changes.
