P2P Foundation
"In order to change an existing paradigm you do not struggle to try and change the problematic model. You create a new model and make the old one obsolete. That, in essence, is the higher service to which we are all being called." ~ Buckminster Fuller ~ Welcome to the P2P Foundation The P2P Foundation is an international organization focused on studying, researching, documenting and promoting peer to peer practices in a very broad sense.

Diagrama de colaboración Un diagrama de colaboración en las versiones de UML 1.x es esencialmente un diagrama que muestra interacciones organizadas alrededor de los roles. A diferencia de los diagramas de secuencia, los diagramas de colaboración, también llamados diagramas de comunicación, muestran explícitamente las relaciones de los roles. Por otra parte, un diagrama de comunicación no muestra el tiempo como una dimensión aparte, por lo que resulta necesario etiquetar con números de secuencia tanto la secuencia de mensajes como los hilos concurrentes. Muestra cómo las instancias específicas de las clases trabajan juntas para conseguir un objetivo común.Implementa las asociaciones del diagrama de clases mediante el paso de mensajes de un objeto a otro. Dicha implementación es llamada "enlace".

Guía incompleta para colaborar Un texto escrito por @Ricardo_AMASTE en enero de 2012 para su publicación en el libro sobre prácticas culturales emergentes ‘Música para camaleones’ (editado por Transit Projectes en noviembre de 2012).- > Descargar ‘Guía incompleta para colaborar’ en pdf. > Descargar libro completo ‘Música para camaleones’. - Aquí estoy, en la paradoja de enfrentarme sólo a un texto sobre colaborar. Le Webinaire Les cours et le séminaire de l’axe 2 porteront sur une seule thématique : les communs numériques avec une ouverture sur l’open data et les mémoires numériques. Le séminaire fonctionne sous la forme d’un webinaire : séminaire en ligne accessible par tout internaute (même non inscrit au Master), avec des intervenants distants. Tous les cours de l’axe 2 seront consacrés à la préparation de ce webinaire, dans ses aspects théoriques, techniques et méthodologiques. photo Louise Merzeau CC BY-NC-SA Chaque séance du webinaire accueille deux interventions suivies d’une discussion.

DACs — Invictus Innovations Incorporated Distributed Autonomous Corporations (DACs), or Decentralized Autonomous Companies, are a generalization of the concept of a crypto-currency where the currency is backed by the services its miners perform rather than a real-world commodity like gold, oil, or, ahem, thin air. If we can barter for goods and services, why can’t we back currencies with goods or services? DACs may be simultaneously viewed as crypto-currencies and crypto-equities (unmanned businesses). As businesses, they perform services intended to be valuable to their customers.

Hacia una pachamama del conocimiento común y abierto Un discurso de Eben Moglen en la conferencia FOSDEM 2011, Bruselas, 5 de Febrero, 2011 Gracias, buenos días. Es un gran placer estar aquí. Quiero agradecer a los organizadores por el milagro que es FOSDEM. Par-delà le libre accès… Break the Bank: Build Your Local Economy - Natural Health Bartering was the original means of exchanging goods and services, predating the invention of money as we know it. Garden bounty was traded for sheep’s cheese; mead was swapped for a woven blanket. Today, a resurgence in bartering is underway, as people turn away from our culture’s dominant “buy more stuff” paradigm, and instead take pride and satisfaction in the goods and services they provide, the handiwork of their friends and neighbors, and in helping make their communities more self-reliant. The growth of this direct-trade economy is accompanied by an emergence of several other exciting economic trends that diverge from business as usual. Options include seed libraries, bike-sharing programs, local currencies and socially responsible investment plans. Here’s how you can join in and be a part of the change.

ABEER SEIKALY Human life throughout history has developed in alternating waves of migration and settlement. The movement of people across the earth led to the discovery of new territories as well as the creation of new communities among strangers forming towns, cities, and nations. Navigating this duality between exploration and settlement, movement and stillness is a fundamental essence of what it means to be human. In the aftermath of global wars and natural disasters, the world has witnessed the displacement of millions of people across continents. Refugees seeking shelter from disasters carry from their homes what they can and resettle in unknown lands, often starting with nothing but a tent to call home. “Weaving a home” reexamines the traditional architectural concept of tent shelters by creating a technical, structural fabric that expands to enclose and contracts for mobility while providing the comforts of contemporary life (heat, running water, electricity, storage, etc.)
