Four Design Principles for True P2P Networks - P2P Foundation

Four Design Principles for True P2P Networks - P2P Foundation | Lemlem | Scoop.it

The recording industry used the courts to shut down Napster because they could. Napster had a single throat they could get their legal arms around, choking the life out of it. In a display of natural selection that would have brought a tear to Alfred Russel Wallace’s eye, the selection pressure applied by the recording industry only led to the creation of Gnutella, which, through its inherently distributed architecture, became essentially impossible to eradicate...

Banned TED Talk: Graham Hancock – The War on Consciousness

Banned TED Talk: Graham Hancock – The War on Consciousness | Lemlem | Scoop.it

Yet another TED talk banned by the TED community due to the challenge it poses to mainstream science. The talk was done at a TEDx conference and aired on the TEDx YouTube channel for a period of time before it was removed due to its content. 

 

It is quite clear why the talk was censored. It isn’t that it explores faulty information or even offensive topics, it is simply that it explores a topic that is greatly feared by mainstream medicine and science.

 

Graham brings light to the war on consciousness that exists in our modern society, especially in the western world...

The future of jobs: not being an employee, but not quite like being a contractor either

The future of jobs: not being an employee, but not quite like being a contractor either | Lemlem | Scoop.it

Just as industrial society became a society of corporations, it developed into a society of employers and employees. These were two different ways of looking at the same phenomenon, jobs. Almost all economic theories have made, and still make, the same assumption: the employer — employee relationship is necessary to create jobs. We have taken that relationship as given.

 

Traditional management thinking sets employee goals and business goals against each other. The manager is free to choose the goals, but the employee is only free to follow or not to follow the given goals. This is why employee advocates mainly want responsible firms, nothing else, and the management of those firms wants skilled employees who do what they are told, nothing else.

 

The other assumption that is taken for granted is that it is the independentemployer/manager who exercises freedom of choice in choosing the goals and designing the rules that the members of the organization are to follow. The employees of the organization are not seen as being autonomous, with a choice of their own, but are seen as rule-following, dependent, entities. People are not really people, but resources.

We are as used to the employer choosing the work objectives as we are used to the teacher choosing the learning objectives. The manager directs the way in which the employee engages with work, and manages the timing and duration of the work. This image of work is easy to grasp because it has been taught at school, where the model is the same.

 

We should ask whether the current social construct of jobs is inevitable, or whether it is a social artefact that is over 100 years old, and should be redesigned.

Spanish Robin Hood Enric Duran on Capitalism and "Integral Revolution"

Spanish Robin Hood Enric Duran on Capitalism and "Integral Revolution" | Lemlem | Scoop.it

In this interview, Neal Gorenflo (founder, Shareable), Michel Bauwens (founder, P2P Foundation), and John Restakis (author, Humanizing the Economy) speak with Enric Duran. Duran is a Catalan anti-capitalist activist, best known for his act of “financial civil disobedience” announced on September 17, 2008, in which he took out half a million Euros in bank loans and distributed the funds to anti-capitalist movements. As it was never his intention to pay these debts, but instead to stir debate about the unfair legal advantages afforded to the powerful financial elite, he was soon labeled “Robin Banks,” and faced with a lengthy prison sentence. The resulting legal actions and his subsequent seclusion have left him living virtually underground, although he maintains selective contact and has stated that he may return, contingent on a variety of factors. Despite his precarious legal status, his work continues undiminished in the Catalan Integral Cooperative (CIC), which describes itself as a “transitional initiative for social transformation from below, through self-management, self-organization, and networking.” Here is Enric Duran talking about his work and life.

The Dawn of System Leadership

The Dawn of System Leadership | Lemlem | Scoop.it

The deep changes necessary to accelerate progress against society's most intractable problems require a unique type of leader - the system leader, a person who catalyzes collective leadership.


At no time in history have we needed such system leaders more. We face a host of systemic challenges beyond the reach of existing institutions and their hierarchical authority structures. Problems like climate change, destruction of ecosystems, growing scarcity of water, youth unemployment, and embedded poverty and inequity require unprecedented collaboration among different organizations, sectors, and even countries. Sensing this need, countless collaborative initiatives have arisen in the past decade - locally, regionally, and even globally. Yet more often than not they have floundered - in part because they failed to foster collective leadership within and across the collaborating organizations.

There's a lot to like in this article and much to contemplate. I particularly like the 3 core capabilities of see the large system, further reflection and more generative conversations, and shifting from reactive problem-solving to co-creating the future.

Jason Leong's curator insight, January 25, 2015 7:13 PM

"System leaders like Baldwin and Winslow understand that collective wisdom cannot be manufactured or built into a plan created in advance. And it is not likely to come from leaders who seek to “drive” their predetermined change agenda. Instead, system leaders work to create the space where people living with the problem can come together to tell the truth, think more deeply about what is really happening, explore options beyond popular thinking, and search for higher leverage changes through progressive cycles of action and reflection and learning over time. Knowing that there are no easy answers to truly complex problems, system leaders cultivate the conditions wherein collective wisdom emerges over time through a ripening process that gradually brings about new ways of thinking, acting, and being.


For those new to system leadership, creating space can seem passive or even weak. For them, strong leadership is all about executing a plan. Plans are, of course, always needed, but without openness people can miss what is emerging, like a sailor so committed to his initial course that he won’t adjust to shifts in the wind. Even more to the point, the conscious acts of creating space, of engaging people in genuine questions, and of convening around a clear intention with no hidden agenda, creates a very different type of energy from that which arises from seeking to get people committed to your plan."

Corporations Aren't Recruiting Enough Weirdos

Corporations Aren't Recruiting Enough Weirdos | Lemlem | Scoop.it

We need to expand our definition of diversity to include the weird—a group often maligned and avoided. These are people who appear to us as different, strange, and even offbeat; they just don’t fit in.

There is potency and innovativeness in certain kinds of weirdness that can help businesses thrive.

The key for leaders is to figure out how to support weird people so that they create—not destroy—value for the company. Some of these people have stifled their offbeat creativity out of social fear, camouflaging their true selves because they think it’s not appropriate at work to be as they really are. They leave essential parts of themselves at the office door.

Beyond Transparency

Beyond Transparency | Lemlem | Scoop.it

Back in the early 2000's, “honesty, integrity, and respect” were the standard buzzwords in ethics discussions. In the intervening decade, “transparency” has joined that list.

 

Rising alongside a call for transparency is a wave of thought leaders, across all sectors, who are beginning to ask, “Transparency to what end?” Is it simply about regulatory compliance, or making funders and investors happy?

 

Or could transparency actually be an organization’s path to accomplishing its mission?

Why ‘unconditional basic income for all’ fails the ‘splutter test’ but would liberate the world

Why ‘unconditional basic income for all’ fails the ‘splutter test’ but would liberate the world | Lemlem | Scoop.it

With the Citizen’s Income, also known as the Basic or Universal Income, everybody in the country gets given enough money to meet their basic needs every week, regardless of whether they are rich or poor, employed or unemployed. It replaces the complicated bureaucracy of much of the welfare state and would be funded through progressive taxation, or possibly a Land Value Tax. 

 

Hearing the idea for the first time can cause many to splutter, especially those for whom the idea of something for nothing sends them into a blind rage.

 

Thanks to the tabloid obsession with ‘scroungers’ and the idea that taxing the rich will trigger Armageddon, there are many who will splutter quite profoundly at the Citizen’s Income.

 

Its arrival in the mainstream would have a similar impact to the first appearance of the Sex Pistols on British television in the 1970s...

Rick Simpson Cured 5000 People of Cancer: This is the Recipe Which Kills all Types of Cancer in 90 Days - (Video 52min) | Lemlem | Scoop.it

“It was in 2002. The doctors had given up on me since there were several unsuccessful operations of three pigmented lesions on my face. Whenever they removed them, they would reappear even more infected!

Since I studied plants for years as a hobby, one morning, while looking at the wounds on the face in the mirror, I recalled a study conducted by the University in Virginia which stated that THC, the active ingredient of cannabis cures cancer. I took the previously prepared oil from cannabis from the cabin and applied few drops directly on the wounds.”- remembers Rick. 


According to his own testimony, he did not feel that anything epochal occurred. He put the bandages over the wounds with cannabis oil and waited few days. 

 

“After a few days I removed the bandages and I could not believe what I was seeing. There were no wounds anymore, and the skin wish pinkish as babies’ skin!

That same moment, I started telling people that I had cured skin cancer with cannabis oil. Everyone laughed, but 11 and half years passed by, and the cancer did not return”- explains Rick with a smile on his face.

Is Big Pharma Murdering Our Cutting-Edge Doctors? Yes, Of Course They Are... | Lemlem | Scoop.it

Depending on who you read, the number of cutting-edge (non-drug) health professionals dying under suspicious circumstances varies, but is rapidly increasing.  The last doctor, 59 year-old Mitch Gaynor MD, a personal friend, and regular guest interview, of TV Doctor Oz , supposedly committed suicide in his back yard of his country home. 


Bullshit - Gaynor was at the top of his game.  My thinking?  Gaynor was murdered, openly, as a message for Oz.  What message?  "Shut the fuck up, or you're next." 


Virtually every one of the doctors that died under "suspicious circumstances" have commonalities - the largest of which is an anti-vaccine stance. But that's not everything...

How Resilience Works

How Resilience Works | Lemlem | Scoop.it

This is a fascinating 'classic' HBR article from 2002, written by Diane Coutu on the rather elusive (but highly valued) quality of resilience.

 

Coutu suggests that resilience can be learned (although its not straightforward) and she identified that three qualities that help to define people's abilities to be able to get through periods of great adversity and bounce back after major setbacks:

 

The ability to Face Down Reality and see things as they really are rather than with rose-tintFinding meaning and purpose in times of adversity that building a bridge to a better imagine future stateA habit of ritualised ingenuity - being able to improvise solutions and workarounds when presented with challenges 

 

According to one of her interviewees, " More than education, more than experience, more than training, a person’s level of resilience will determine who succeeds and who fails. That’s true in the cancer ward, it’s true in the Olympics, and it’s true in the boardroom.”
