Interviewing Joe Justice from Team Wikispeed on the Future of Manufacturing (and Consumption)

Joe Justice is the ideator of Team Wikspeed: a team of volunteers distributed around the world who recently created a prototype car that is open source, modular and ultra-efficient in just three months, using processes borrowed from software development, the world from which Joe comes from. In addition to being a visionary, Joe is a fantastic and discussion prone person and this interview contains a very open and fruitful discussions I had with him at the end of April. I recommend you read it because it will be useful to you to understand how manufacturing – and consumption – are fated to change in coming years if, as Joe says, we want to continue living on this planet for a while.

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.

On the Internet and the pursuit of real Value for today’s society

What is the role of the Internet at today? What shall us expect from *the Network* in the times of economic and ecological debt?
