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.
And yes --- becoming real. Will have prototypes live in January.
