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?

On the role of Resources in the “Third Industrial Revolution”

Back from Barcelona, from the Panel with Catarina Mota we hosted as Ouishare at the Fablab. Great discussion about materials, supply chain and more in general about why this “Third Industrial Revolution” is about a more conscious and honest use (and relation) with resources

Hacking Society (and Learning how to Fix it)

This post is about hacking our society for the better, it was a mixed inspirations that came from watching a recent lecture from Joe Stiglitz focusing on the shortage of long term sight in human, market driven, society and the urgency of learning.

Also, to inspire this writing, it’s been a sentiment that I feel growing more and more every day: the necessity to take a turn towards a more meaningful experience in life as a human being.

Why we need Open, Hackable Materials now – An Interview with Catarina Mota

Catarina Mota is, no doubt, amongst the most eminent representatives of the Hacking movement. To me, it’s extremely impressive though how one of the leaders of this revolution is coming right from outside the technological world and actually has a communication sciences and film college background. When I asked her to tell me a brief recap of her experience of hacking, she gave a really insightful and detailed story.

The Revolution at Hand

The Revolution at hand— The fundamental moment in which design becomes a political tool has arrived. Whatever we choose to call it — P2P culture, peer production movement, open-P2P-design — will we be able to find new meaning cooperatively? Will we be able to participate with conviction in the revolution that is at hand?

“Towards a Cooperative, Small scale, Local, P2P Production Future” – back from the OuiShare Summit in Paris

The lifestyles we are accustomed to, our own society, the very same trajectories that sociey has made available so far to us as western citizens (education-job search-competition-consumption) are obviously and soundly, falling apart along with the debt bubble that has held this system together for decades, hiding the quite obvious flawns in thinking of society as a collection of individuals competing rather than cooperating.

How Peer to Peer Communities will change the World – Interview with Michel Bauwens, P2P Foundation founder.

Among the big changes that affect our world right now, the “peer to peer revolution” that is pervading everything, is the most promising from a sustainability, democracy and freedom standpoint. Will the great promise that lies behind cooperation, decentralisation and peer drive value-creation be fulfilled?
