A festival of openness: join our documentary efforts

Let nobody say we haven’t been working hard at the P2P Foundation!

In our concept of the circulation of the common, i.e. how peer production socially reproduces itself, so that it lasts over time, three elements are crucial.

1) the availability of open and free raw material for social cooperation to occur

2) participatory processes and design which lowers the treshold of participation

3) commons-oriented property formats that guarantee universal access and thereby recreate a new layer of open and free material

These processes have been occuring in every domain of social life, profoundly overturning the logic of our social processes, even if at present they are sill emergent.

Nevertheless, as I went through our Encyclopedia this morning, I was impressed by the wide range of open and free concepts and practices that are already there.

The bad news is: it is becoming more and more time consuming for myself and our cybercollective to keep up, so this is at the same time an appeal: do join our documentary and internetworking efforts. Be part of this revolution and join the festival of openness!

Here’s the list of open concepts and practices. Go here for the links. And write to michelsub2003 at yahoo dot com if you want to help with our efforts.
