Twin Oaks: »It is radical sharing«

Is there a sharing culture beyond economy, namely the »shareconomy«? Yes, there is. Watch this inspiring video of the Twin Oaks Community. They have »radical sharing« inside, but selling their commodities to the markets outside. It is one option in a capitalist environment.

Book of Peer Production

Journal of Peer ProductionThe Book of Peer Production has been released as a special edition of Journal of Peer Production. It consists of papers written by presenters at the Peer Production-track at the Free Society Conference and Nordic Summit (FSCONS) in Göteborg 2014. It is cool, that all content in the book is in the public domain.

Johan Söderberg and Mathieu O’Neil explain: “In fact, the commons and peer production are two names for describing the same thing: a particular kind of labour relation. This labour relation is predicated on voluntary participation and the self-selection of tasks.” — This is exactly what I mean by the commons as being a new elementary form (as used by Marx) of social production opposed to the commodity form.

These are the articles of the book: Vollständigen Artikel lesen »

A Commons Guide for the 4th International Degrowth Conference

degrowthThis is an incomplete collection of commons-related events at the 4th International Degrowth Conference in Leipzig, which will start on September 2. There will be an enormous number of parallel events, sessions and workshops during the 3 main conference days. So, if you want to find commons-related events, the following might be useful for you. We gathered information in English and German for panels and workshops prepared by commoners or where commoners participate. Moreover, You are also invited to one (or two?) network meetings of commoners.

We are thrilled that the Degrowth Conference goes beyond the degrowth movement and opens a space to discuss commonalities and differences with other movements. So,let’s make the commons visible at the conference and use this awesome opportunity to plan for our next steps. Maybe in a not so far future, the Commons Movement will organize a movement congress as well. Leipzig might be an example.

Sadly, my own event collides with a scheduled networking meeting among commoners and also several other commons-related events. There is just too much going on in parallel :(
