La Consommation Collaborative en 10 Infographies | Avant toute chose, je vous souhaite une belle année sous le signe du partage et des projets collaboratifs. Je publierai la semaine prochaine un billet-bilan de 2011 ainsi qu’un petit teaser pour les projets medias qui nous attendent en 2012 : plein de jolies choses dans les cartons, donc stay tuned… ;-) En attendant, voici un post informatif sur les jolies Infographies de la Consommation Collaborative qui nous ont accompagnés en 2011, écrit en commun avec Youssef Nimzilne du blog Ynim*. 1) L’arbre généalogique de la Consommation Collaborative (SFR Player) Avec la métaphore de l’arbre, cette Infographie illustre les fondations et le futur de la Consommation Collaborative (vous la retrouvez ici page 16)

C’est en lisant Paul Ariès (Wikipédia), rédacteur en chef du Sarkophage – notamment La simplicité volontaire contre le mythe de l’abondance -, que j’ai mieux compris les limites qui me chiffonnaient dans la consommation collaborative. Celle-ci nous est souvent présentée sous les atours du partage et du don, alors qu’elle n’en est pas toujours. Le covoiturage et l’autopartage ne sont pas inspirés par une vision altruiste, comme on l’entend trop souvent. Le premier moteur du covoiturage et de l’autopartage n’est pas le partage, mais l’économie. Ce n’est pas sauver la planète qui motive les covoitureurs et les autopartageurs, mais amoindrir l’impact de la crise sur leurs finances personnelles, comme le soulignait déjà l’étude 2010 de l’Institut d’aménagement et d’urbanisme d’Ile-de-France (.pdf).

Commons Law Project | David Bollier Commons Law Project | David Bollier For most of 2011, I have been collaborating with Professor Burns H. Weston of the University of Iowa Law School in writing a major research essay on commons law and human rights. We recently completed a first draft of a lengthy treatise, "Regenerating the Human Right to a Clean and Healthy Environment in the Commons Renaissance." We hope to post this draft online soon and/or publish a revised version in a few months (early 2012). The Commons Law Project is an ecological governance initiative that Professor Weston and I are pursuing in cooperation with The University of Iowa Center for Human Rights (UICHR) and the Vermont Law School Environmental Law Center (VLS-ELC). Rights-based and commons driven, the Project seeks to recover and refurbish the law of the commons from Roman times, the Magna Carta, and points before and since to put forward a new contemporary law of the ecological commons grounded in human rights.
David Bollier | news and perspectives on the commons David Bollier | news and perspectives on the commons There are a number of upcoming conferences focusing on various sorts of commons. For those of you with a passionate interest in any of the following, check out these four gatherings in coming months: A Virtual Town Hall for the Great Lakes Commons, March 18 What would happen if the Great Lakes in North America were managed on principles and practices that empower communities to become stewards of the water?
Sharing is the Biggest Secret in the Global Economy Sharing is the Biggest Secret in the Global Economy There’s more than Olympics and Elections going on in the coming months. 2012 has been named International Year of Cooperatives by the United Nations in recognition of the fact that more than 800 million people around the world belong to one of these economic networks. Coops flourish in all sectors of modern society proving that sharing is a practical economic model. They represent a commons-based alternative to both the private market and state controlled enterprises. Four in ten Canadians are coop members (70 percent in the province of Quebec).
Differentiating The Anarchy Economy From The Sharing Economy So which does your household participate in: the Anarchy economy, the Sharing economy, or both? I'm not a big fan of the word Anarchy. It implies chaos and conjures images of masked mobs, smoke grenades, and police beat downs. But if our global financial system isn't in a state of chaos, just what state is it in then? I have been involved with the Sharing Economy and Collaborative Consumption movement full time since 2006. That is the year I helped research and co-author the first municipal response plan for dealing with the effects of collapsing currencies and resource scarcity.

Legit Legit Friends of Legit, We want to share some exciting news: Our team has joined Facebook. When we began working on Legit, our goal was to build a company that could help us answer the question, "Can I trust this person who I have never met?" We threw ourselves at this question, using our experience renting out our cars, staying with strangers, and sharing many rides in the SF bay area. In our brief history we named and branded our company twice!
L'autonomie est-elle l'avenir de notre société?

L'autonomie est-elle l'avenir de notre société?

Chaque homme doit inventer son chemin... mais est-ce véritablement le cas dans nos sociétés modernes? Perdu dans ses finances incontrôlables, ses productions mondialisées et ses entreprises où l'humain et la nature ne pèsent pas bien lourds, le capitalisme d'aujourd'hui semble s'être laissé piéger par sa complexité et son obsession du profit. Et nous, citoyens-consommateurs, courons chaque jour derrière la consommation, l'épargne, le travail, la sécu, la retraite... Est-ce vraiment la bonne réponse à notre quête personnelle de sens et de bien-être? Est-ce la bonne voie pour pérenniser notre économie et réinventer l'imaginaire de notre avenir collectif? Une solution est en marche qui pourrait résoudre une partie de nos difficultés: l'autonomie.
Collaborative Fund Collaborative Fund A car used to be the ultimate symbol of freedom and independence but increasingly consumers view ownership as an expense and a burden. Often considered the gateway to other forms of Collaborative Consumption, Car Sharing is becoming increasingly popular with its promise of personal convenience and social improvement. It is time to explore this new age where access is better than ownership.
If you’ve been hiding from the Internet for the last five years, you can be forgiven for not knowing about the collaborative consumption economy. It’s everywhere. It’s like this: You have stuff. Spinlister: Peer-To-Peer Bike Sharing Gets Rolling Spinlister: Peer-To-Peer Bike Sharing Gets Rolling
The Gen Y Guide to Collaborative Consumption When our parents graduated from college, the bachelor’s degree was a coveted badge of honor. It gave applicants instant cred (and usually a larger paycheck) no matter what the job. Now, having a bachelor’s degree does nothing to make an applicant stand out from the masses. And if you’re applying for a job well below your skill level because you’re desperate for a paycheck, that B.S. degree will probably get your carefully crafted resume tossed in the trash. American youth are slowly realizing that the old system is broken, and no longer holds the answer to all their dreams and desires. We’re discovering that stable, satisfying careers can be found outside the offices and factories around which our parents and grandparents built their lives.
