I had another exchange with Zin where he wrote some stimulating stuff which I haven't had time to translate.
His point though is that peer production will have significant impact only if it is combined with other factors such as local institutions and currencies.
BTW, the latest EcoRev which came out a week ago is all about digital networks, commons etc.

As mentioned, I contacted french writer Jean Zin who writes
regularly for EcoRev
It's a pity that the French do not take part in international
discussions just because they can't use their mother tongue then...
If anyone would like to add to that please feel free to respond
quite soon, I will incorporate contributions and post a draft
response letter to this list.
Here is my cent.
Hello and thank you for the proposal, however, if I support P2P and
like Michel Bauwens in particular, I am far from sharing the P2P
Utopia specifically with regard to currencies and politics.
Please make clear that peer production has *nothing* to do with
currencies. Reality shows this very clearly. To mix the currency topic
with peer production is an absurd and (for peer production dangerous)
path taken by the P2P Foundation.
