To the : Anyone know of some good or reads on , , , digital economy, systems, and so on that are available online? I can't find a bookstore in this city and I want something that's more of a commitment than short articles

@aaron Governing the Commons by Elinor Ostrom! It is about non monetary economics, and I reference back to it every couple of days.

@douginamug
Yaaas I love that book (and def have a ways to go before I actually understand everything in it)

Btw are you the Ostrom evangelist @mattcropp was telling me about last summer?

@aaron @mattcropp Hmm. I don't think I'd read it last summer, but this spring. So no, probably it was probably another evangelist, but I'm happy to join the choir.

@douginamug @aaron @KeithTaylor @mattcropp

get to read ''patterns of commoning''
it has references to elinor oestrom, but makes more research into the culture behind.

@aaron
Its not quite what you're asking for but you might be interested in:

-The (self proclaimed) magazine for the new economy stirtoaction.com/
- A great podcast on the new economy (and more) upstreampodcast.org/
A long read: thenation.com/article/to-find-

Its not a long read, but I enjoyed this article. Its spot on, particularly given what happened with Amazon buying them up. theguardian.com/commentisfree/

@aaron I think the best current intro to co-ops is Restakis's _Humanizing the Economy_, available as an ebook.

@aaron not sure if that's what you're looking for but i'm a fan of Ostrom's work on common pool resources (which can arguably be generalized) The classic work is libgen.pw/download.php?id=4180 (governing the commons); To get you started: cooperationcommons.com/node/36 and rs.resalliance.org/2011/03/31/

@aaron if you've not read them, some of the early texts about the Rochdale Pioneers are interesting/inspiring en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rochda
Look at the references on that page
