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 Platform Design Toolkit is in the Making

My interest towards Platform Design is growing and I’m working to build an entire toolkit for Platform designers that is inspired by the principles of Design Thinking. In this post I release an updated Platform Design Canvas, building on community feedbacks, as well as a new tool: the Platform Motivations Matrix, a companion tool that, with the Canvas, it’s now the foundation of an upcoming Platform Design Toolkit.

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.

The Platform Design Canvas: a tool for Business Design

The Platform Design Canvas is a fork of the Business Model Canvas which aims to facilitate the design of business, but also products or organizations, looking at them as platforms for value creation. It’s nothing more (or less) than a tool for platform design.

“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.

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 to make your Company and Products thrive in an Age of Cooperation

As a reader who regularly follows the blog knows, in my latest piece I introduced some new concepts about the theory of niches and, in particular, I focused on showing how communities finally won a productive and inspirative role into the new cooperative product cycle that is gradually establishing. This piece, instead, is mostly about how businesses can thrive by collaborating with communities: means, perspectives, “places” and phases.
