Following @emi "s example, here is my Prezi from yesterday's discussion of Platform Cooperativism in Japan.
A little hard to follow without the text, which I plan to write up. Turns out there was a lot of interest in Platform Capitalism. Thanks to Nick Srnicek for his book on the subject. (It makes me want to read Kim Moody's On New Terrain and Anwar Shaikh's Capitalism, competition, conflict, crises.)
