Commons, not markets

The title of this post "commons, not markets" hints at a much larger theme I'm working on. In that vein, however, here is an interesting site and presentation on a "social venture commons" that I found through twitter (#igniter). Note the presentation refers to micro-funds.

Reminds me of my "Let's pitch Hollywood" and "Giving Commons" posts. And the SVC seems to be real(ish).

Lucy, thanks for the pointer. Updated presentation is up at http://igniter.com/post339 and there is a twitter hashtag for some initial conversation at #svc (search.twitter.com). The micro-funds post is at http://igniter.com/post320

Looking forward to learning where you are going w/ commons v. markets. Very exciting times - great opportunity for 'new' models and systems and the need is only growing.

Cheers,

Michael
