My new paper tries to identify some of what is lost as market-based "sharing economy" platforms increasing replace socially-oriented systems based on actual sharing: https://mako.cc/copyrighteous/what-we-lose-when-we-move-from-social-to-market-exchange (The paper was led by @notconfusing who will present it at @CSCW next month!)
In my #LibrePlanet2018 keynote (https://mako.cc/copyrighteous/libreplanet-2018-keynote) I argued that online collaborative production is shifting from social to market-based arrangements. This paper explores the implications. (As is clear in the talk, part of this paper's results motivated the whole argument!)
@mako Hello! Thank you for the amazing work!
I co-founded/maintain a common house https://kanthaus.online which provides a platform for people to live and contribute towards the common good.
Notable are foodsharing.de and karrot.world, two web-apps for people to collect food that stores/other users would throw away—no charge.
Competition comes from '2nd-hand' sales apps like Oleo and Too Good To Go.
Perhaps interesting for you @nicksellen
Fascinating perspective. Thanks for the info!
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
