Sharing, Collaborating and Relational Goods

Sharing means collaborating. And collaboration stands for “an exchange in which the participants benefit from the encounter” (Sennet 2012)[1]. Doing so, they exchange something (time, experiences, expertise) to achieve a mutually recognized result. At the same time, they produce, as precious side effect, relational goods, as trust, friendliness, empathy, mutual attention and care.

 My proposal is to use this relational goods production as norm of reading to evaluate sharing innovations and their evolution from first ideas to mature solutions.

 

Adopting this point of view, it can be easily recognized that, where at the beginning the majority of sharing ideas and practices were collaborative and capable to produce relational goods, in their evolution towards maturity, different innovation paths have been followed. The result is that some of them have totally lost their original collaborative character, and some others maintained it, adapting it to the new conditions. That is, finding the way to extend collaborative behaviours from the initial small groups of enthusiasts, to larger number of active, but far less committed actors.

 

My presentation focuses on this second path and, moving from here, discusses how sharing innovations can evolve, become mature and spread maintaining their collaborative dimension. That is, producing, reproducing and amplifying relational goods in the normal everybody’s everyday life. In other words, my proposal is that, for the sharing movement, after the gold rush there could be the challenging perspective of a disruptive normality: a condition in which, for a growing number of people, it becomes normal to think and behave in contrast with the unsustainable ideas and behaviours that, unfortunately, are still mainstream.

Making The Open City
Citizen-led initiatives in Barcelona, Amsterdam and Bristol are currently demonstrating that it is possible to put people at the heart of smart city innovation and technology at the service of society. Tackling urban issues by appropriating technology, discussing data ownership and privacy, and exploring commoning and sharing dynamics they aim to co-create more inclusive, open and resilient cities. This presentation sheds light on how citizens are catalysing a new wave in smart city design that challenges existing power structures, amplifies the range of available solutions to urban issues and therefore creates value and opportunities for all.

Institutions in the age of algorithms, and why we still need them
This talk will try to outline some of the possible features of Twenty-First Century institutions and large organisations for a future that looks both more human and networked, but also more automated and robotic. Looking back at the role institutions have historically played as custodians of shared values, I will try to make a positive case for how they could protect and extend our new shared network-era values in both the commercial and non-commercial domains.

How to Fund Communities and Movements Transparently

The Internet has so far been really good at helping people to do things together. But once there is money involved, we still need to create 20th century legal entities and collect money in black boxes.

Plantoid & DAOs : Blockchain-based Life Forms
Artist & researcher Primavera De Filippi has created a new species. It’s called Plantoid, and it’s difficult to describe in a single sentence. At first glance, it appears to be a mechanical sculpture, but taking a closer look it reveals itsself more as a mechanical creature.
Primavera tells the story of the Plantoid as a “distributed autonomous organisation” or DAO, which is a quasi-legal entity that exists as executable code on the blockchain. Every Plantoid implements its own DAO, allowing it to interact with the real world.

The Promise of a Centerless World

Decentralization is already here, but it hasn't been evenly distributed. Based on his research, William Mougayar describes where we are in decentralization along three dimensions: Trust: Law, Governance, Industry Services (Financial, Government, Trade, Healthcare), Wealth: Economic Production, Flow of value, Transactions, and Information: Content, Privacy, Security. In this talk, Mougayar also defines the building blocks of decentralization: Peer-to-Peer Models, Trust-based Systems and Services, Autonomous Organizations, and Wealth Creation Methods in the New Crypto-Economy.

A Case for Truly Smart and Sustainable Cities

Based on research for our MIT book “Sharing Cities”, this presentation argues the case for cities to harness sharing for justice and sustainability. I will highlight the failings of economic framings of sharing and smartness, which position commercial intermediaries as the go-to experts on sharing; rather than the cities, charities and communities that have much longer and deeper experience in managing shared resources, spaces, infrastructures, facilities and services.

Such framings also underlie fruitless polarized public debate over the potential and role of commercial sharing platforms such as Uber and Airbnb. Genuine sharing cities need to both enable and regulate the collaborative economy. But they also have the power and opportunity to harness the potential of sharing to rebuild social capital and a shared urban commons. I will outline ways in which cities that open themselves to cultural and political disruption can flourish by engaging with the rich diversity of sharing practices and organisations that are enabled by modern technologies and collective values.

The State of The Nation: Blockchains, Not Borders
The Nation State, as we know it, is going away. It’s an outdated construct that does more harm than good, because of its ‘one-size-fits-all’ modality. How do we ensure that the post-nation state reality doesn’t turn into an even more dystopian society, a la 1984? By creating open source protocols for city states and virtual nations, we will build a free and competitive market for governance. Indeed, two already existing models will be discussed, Liberland and Bitnation.

Introduction to Plaform Cooperativism
The seeds are being planted for a new kind of online economy—one owned and governed by the people who depend on it. For all the wonders the Internet brings us, it is dominated by an economics of monopoly, extraction, and surveillance. Ordinary users retain little control over their personal data, and the digital workplace is creeping into every corner of workers’ lives. Online platforms often exploit and exacerbate existing inequalities in society, even while promising to be the great equalizers. Could the Internet be owned and governed differently? What if Uber drivers could set up their own platform, or if cities could control their own version of Airbnb? What if we had an Internet of ownership?

Power to the Contributors? Governance Models in the Collaborative Economy
Today, collaborative organizations rely on many external contributors to provide the services they offer. How can platforms share the decision-making power with their external contributors? How can they reward and associate contributors while meeting their own organizational requirements? How can governance be a factor to make an organization more sustainable as well as making the stakeholders feel recognized? 
Many collaborative organizations are already experimenting with governance processes and structures in order to better integrate their stakeholders. To illustrate this, Marguerite will share the experience of 3 French examples drawn the study "Gouvernances", which she is co-leading for OuiShare:
- France Barter is a B2B barter system structured as a multistakeholder cooperative.  
- Mon Pti Voisinage is a neighborhood social network that aggregates collaborative services in a given area. 
- Practishare is a open source no nprofit platform that helps communities share solutions and organize knowledge.

'Poiesis' or How to sabotage global transformation

I run a little thought game on how life-making is connected to androgyny or anything “in between.”
It's about the "i" in poiesis; and how to go beyond being a provocateur and instead making the provocative the normal. 

But while we try so passionately to create something new, what are our hidden patterns that perpetuate the old?
How much neoliberal residue do we all carry? 
What kind of thinking and doing required to really transition? 

Some clues lie in the way we tell stories to ourselves and others;
in our symbols;
in the way we set goals;
in the way we use language.

This session is a philosophical mindbend I havn't shared before. It has been shaped by countless playshops; and informed by the hard labour of threading a provocative PhD through an orthodox system.  

So basically, with all that, we cover the ego, the others, the in-between, and the ether. Oha.
