Re: [ox-en] Re: [p2pf] Launch of P2P Research Group

Hi Mathieu,

Filling in the blanks as per my experience with P2Pf over the course of 6
months now


- is it research on peer production [process / philosophy / groups /
whatever] or
- is it research that is peer produced?

1. It's more than just the peer production process. It's the peer driven
economy, and more generally a peer driven society.

2. AFAIK, the research is sometimes produced individually through a process
of iterative feedback from willing/interested/engaged peers (see e.g. the
individual author pages on P2Pf wiki) and sometimes it's produced by several
peers (see all other P2Pf wiki pages)

Hi Ryan,

I don't think any social or political change project can bypass
altogetherall institutions, it needs to work both within and
without. This being said,
while aiming for funding obviously demands playing by some
rules, I think
that for all participants who believe in the P2P ethos, no
research project
can or should be exclusive to academic researchers. In my view,
the new
group should also be able to assist non-academic researchers.

Perhaps, we could write a manifesto of sorts, that would serve
as the
'constitution' of the group, which would specific this,

Would you be interested in taking the lead in writing this?

Research in an academic sense is not p2p, hasn't been, and
never will be.
I would not exclude it, I just would feed it by giving it
additional free
assets of prestige and focus without their earning those
resources in open
(truly open) communities.
