Is the collaborative economy only for the privileged?
"While we can always argue about the terms that are used, what’s more important is to identify the different motivations and abilities people have, and the differences coming from their different backgrounds and capabilities. How can we create a new collaborative economy that is equally beneficial for everyone, no matter where they come from?"

My Common Education: Lessons From Open Field | On the Commons
"In “My Common Education” Sarah Schultz describes Open Field, the Walker Art Center’s innovative experiment in offering an open space to the community as a commons where creativity of all kinds is encouraged. Sarah Peters in the story below, “When Bad Things Don’t Happen”, describes what could have gone wrong, and why it didn’t. Schultz is director of education and curator of public practice at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. Peters is an independent writer, educator and arts programmer. These are reprinted from the new book Open Field: Conversations on the Commons, an absorbing collection from many authors exploring issues of the arts, the commons, public space and community co-creation raised by Open Field. OTC will be running several more excerpts from the book in the coming weeks"

Rise in Scientific Journal Retractions Prompts Calls for Reform - NYTimes.com
"Ms. Bradford, of Science magazine, agreed. “I would agree that a scientist’s career advancement should not depend solely on the publications listed on his or her C.V.,” she said, “and that there is much room for improvement in how scientific talent in all its diversity can be nurtured.”

Even scientists who are sympathetic to the idea of fundamental change are skeptical that it will happen any time soon. “I don’t think they have much chance of changing what they’re talking about,” said Dr. Korn, of Harvard. "

Sharing Power (Aussie Rules) | the human network
What, then, is leadership in the cloud? It is not like leadership in the tower. It is not a position wrought from power, but authority in its other, and more primary meaning, ‘to be the master of’. Authority in the cloud is drawn from dedication, or, to use rather more precise language, love. Love is what holds the cloud together. People are attracted to the cloud because they are in love with the aim of the cloud.

digital digs: from immaterial labor to immaterial profits
Perhaps what is going on here is a new kind of crisis/tragedy of the commons. Unlike the old commons that gets fished-out or over-grazed, the digital commons appears to be this endless supply of storage and bandwidth. However obviously those things do cost money to someone, and while both have gotten cheaper, in the volume being used by YouTube or Facebook, it adds up quickly.

OnTheCommons.org » Online Collaboration Goes Legit
Besides dictating organizational forms, current law privileges the interests of investors and boards of directors, and has no recognition for co-creators who wish to collaborate to create shared value in virtual spaces, and who wish to make decisions as a group.

So imagine if a group of self-organized individuals could come together on the Internet to create valuable products and services – and to establish their own “operating agreement” among themselves, according to their specific goals — and yet still receive the benefits of “legal personhood” that corporations enjoy.

Citizendium Blog » Is ProCon.org neutral?
I’m writing about ProCon because I think it is fascinating in several ways. In one way, it represents a wholesale rejection of the idea of community editing, which in this day and age is fascinating. I am impressed by what happened when somebody decided simply to pay a dozen researchers to create free, reliable (apparently), open (in the sense of “full disclosure”), and neutral content. Could Wikipedia have assembled this website? I

OnTheCommons.org » Michel Bauwens and the Peer Production Economy
Peer production thus abandons “credentialism” – a system of control used in modernity to protect information within a group, said Bauwens. Guilds, churches and universities are examples. In a p2p network, however, instead of making selections about work at the beginning, based on credentials, selection comes at the end, based on collective judgments.
