Les semences prennent le maquis, bande annonce. The problem with the sharing economy. Steve@sfbg.com Catbird turned me onto Airbnb almost two years ago, long before I'd ever heard of the "sharing economy" or "collaborative consumption," terms the tech industry is now using for companies that facilitate peer-to-peer rentals or otherwise take transactions once done through Craigslist to a glitzy new commercial level.

The problem with the sharing economy

We were working together to build the Temple of Flux for Burning Man 2010 and chatting in the shop one evening. I mentioned wanting to find someone to sublet my apartment for the nearly three weeks that I was to spend on the playa that year, and she sang the praises of Airbnb, which she had recently started using to make some extra cash by renting out a room in the house she owns on Potrero Hill.

"Airbnb has been a godsend, and it's invigorated a lot of the neighborhoods that tourists might not come and visit," she said. "We're not competing with the hotels, the hotels don't provide that kind of experience. " Le modèle "collaboratif" va détruire des emplois. The 'sharing economy': The next big business trend. From Airbnb to TaskRabbit to Zimride, sharing is becoming big business.

The nation is in a sharing mood — and start-ups are capitalizing on it. Americans with heaps of stuff, skills and time are connecting online with tech-savvy and early adopters eager to share and rent homes, cars, tools and services in exchange for deep savings.

Adam Hertz, a cable company executive in San Francisco, and his wife, Joan, have enthusiastically embraced the movement. Pour une énergie propre, libre et accessible ! Fair trade electronics.

The Revolution at Hand

It is indeed difficult not to note the success and increasing visibility of peer production — the decentralized alternative to large-scale industrial production first theorized in 2006 by Professor Yochai Benkler in his seminal book The Wealth of Networks — on the network scene and in factual reality. The Economist has dedicated an entire report to the phenomenon. Experts like Michel Bauwens (founder of the P2P Foundation) have been invited to lecture on the topic even at the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences . We must avoid a new wrong turn of cooperativism: the strategic danger of collaborative ‘consumption’ Natalia Fernandez of Lasindias.net argues: By severing cooperativism from its communal origins and and focusing on consumption, British cooperativism and the ICA caused lasting damage to the transformative capacity of cooperativism, which we should not repeat today in the debate between the economy of the commons and collaborative consumption.

We must avoid a new wrong turn of cooperativism: the strategic danger of collaborative ‘consumption’

She explains why (please note the original article has many links): “The emerging forms of capital (the commons) and consumption of the P2P mode of production …open two different worlds. One of the narratives that has done the most damage to the mutualist tradition is making the starting point for the History of Cooperativism the birth of modern consumer cooperativism, the famous “Rochdale Pioneers” of 1844.
