On the role of Platform Based Peer Production and the Commons in the dynamics of Innovation

I recently wrote this article for Spanda Journal: it explores the hypothesis that cognitive capitalism and peer production can coexist in the perspective of an abundant economy, refusing the perspective that puts capitalism and private enterprise in direct confrontation with open, participative and cooperative ownership and governance models.

The Hacker Ethic of Work

Our duty is to face the future with the eagerness to be part of it and give it a different shape: that’s why we need a new ethic of work, one which is in line with the post-industrial age, an age of transformation, meaning and experimentation.

On Capital, emerging Narratives and the Collaborative Transformation

I recently had the chance to dig deep into the role of capital and capitalism in the collaborative transformation. I’m doing this quest because at OuiShare Fest 2015 – which is approaching really fast – I will be looking after the program, and more specifically after a couple of tracks, mostly those related to capital and corporates.

Going Beyond Openness: transforming Supply, Profit and Value Chains

The promise of open source will not work in the economy of tangible products, organizations and processes if we don’t activate in first person in the creation of something radically new. If we do not experiment beyond licenses, beyond openness.

The revolution of distributed, sustainable and abundant production requires more inventive in social forms, brand management, financial models, involvement of local communities.

Why also non Digital Brands will eventually become Platforms

To which extent, componentization will lead to the transformation of the very same concept of the brand? Transforming into Platforms is the next calling for brands and market co-evolution will define the winners.

How to Frame the Sharing Economy Narrative (and Move On)

Is the sharing economy the first attempt to instill community perspectives in the traditional process of venture capital backed innovation? Or, on the contrary, is that an attempt of Venture Capital to monetize peer to peer and cooperative trends emerging from a pervasive internet and a global cultural shift?

Digital Evolutions: Startups, Platforms and Ecosystems

In search for new ideas to frame Platform Design as a discipline in a more global discourse regarding the digital market, I went in search of complementary theories: most of this research have been consolidated in a Lecture that I gave at two Startup Accelerators lately. In parallel, the Platform Design canvas is transforming into a more comprehensive Toolkit.
