Transnational Republics of Commoning

Sunday July 9th, 2017 9:30 AM Pacific - 12:30 PM Eastern - 6:30 PM Central Europe

Join us for an online conversation exploring new forms of digital commons with examples from the empowered humans over at Enspiral and other communities.

The super-dork-fun discussion prompt for this Salon is a short portion of a report by David Bollier called “Transnational Republics of Commoning”. We’ll focus on the section “Digital Commons as New Species of Production and Governance”, which is on pdf pages 10-16.

This topic lands as a bit of a bridge between some of our recent more general conversations on governance and a more detailed exploration of the types of tools that Ceptr and others are creating to support new forms of relationship and organization.

The article is a short read. Please bring comments or questions to this 90 minute online salon so we can explore this terrain together.

The Future of Governance is not Governments

Sunday May 28th, 2017

Metacurrency co-founder Arthur Brock argues that our governmental institutions don’t have the bandwidth to keep up with a world that is changing as rapidly as ours is and suggests that we need to create new governance mechanisms using bottom-up, digital social networks.
