OuiShare Fest 2016: the Slow Motion Replay — Enspiral Tales

As the countryside slips past me at 300 kph, I have a desire to review a few moments from the past few days. I need to slow them right down so I can actually notice what they look like. I’m going to examine three moments from the OuiShare Festival that drew a global community together for a few days in Paris: These stories will be about 20% reporting and 80% interpretation.

Yochai Benkler (Harvard University) - Closing Remarks. Making Sense of the Emerging Economy with Yochai Benkler — Enspiral Tales. In my 20s I had the impression that my reality was fundamentally illegible to the academics of the past.

Making Sense of the Emerging Economy with Yochai Benkler — Enspiral Tales

Making a living from open source hardware meant I was participating in an international network of people who freely shared their “intellectual property” with each other, growing a common resource of benefit to everyone. My peers included a 1970s Californian performance artist, a 12-year-old in a small Spanish town looking for mental stimulation, and a Russian engineer who remixed my ideas and returned them to the Internet extended and improved. This socio-economic reality was beyond the imagination of Hayek, Keynes, Marx or Smith. Bootstrapping a bossless organisation in 3 easy steps ;-) — Enspiral Tales. Bootstrapping a bossless organisation in 3 easy steps ;-) My first impression at OuiShare Fest was a weird utopian blockchain mania: a poorly understood but massively hyped technology that will somehow fix all our social, political, and economic inequities.

Bootstrapping a bossless organisation in 3 easy steps ;-) — Enspiral Tales

As I got to know some of the people here though, I started to see through the fog of hype and find a lot of incredible people taking on tough challenges in a really pragmatic/idealistic way. Everyone here has an awesome idea, and they want to work on it in a decentralised, leaderless, nonhierarchical, bossless way. But the question that so many of them have in common is about bootstrapping: how do I go from this idealistic concept to a highly functioning non-hierarchical purpose-driven organisation?

Cooperativa Integral Catalana – Fairness and the commons, an interview with Enric Duran

Prior to co-founding the Catalan Integral Cooperative — a Commons Transition partner project creating a cooperative, self managed public system in Catalonia — Duran became famous for his 2008 “bank action”, an act which involved defrauding 39 Spanish banks of nearly €500,000 and subsequently distributing these funds to a variety of activist movements and social causes. He presently lives as a fugitive outside Spain, and is currently busy organizing the FairCoop Open Cooperative, a community-built effort to alleviate global economic inequalities through the use of mutual credit, reputation systems and cryptocurrencies.
