when the economy becomes collaborative

orange1-723x1024

Exchanging houses during vacation time, sharing car with strangers, designing a lamp for one’s own living room in a FabLab, proposing a packaging design for a favorite brand, inventing a solution to help a company innovate, writing a article in wikipedia or a hotel review in a tourism site, ordering with neighbors organic vegetables… collaborative practices between individuals or between individuals and businesses are multiplying around us.

Equipped with Internet and the Web, strangers can interact, share, and cooperate at distance, consequently opening new development perspectives for our patterns of consumption, production and creation.
Therefore companies are invited to revisit their methods of organization, the way they innovate, their customer relationship as their clients become actors, as well as their models for sharing value.
Orange, as a major player in the information economy, is interested in these emerging transformations, which constitute both challenges and opportunities.

The report “Synthetic overview of the collaborative economy“, coproduced by Orange Labs and the P2P Foundation, provides a thorough mapping of the actors involved in this cooperative economy: for the first time, nearly all the dots of the emerging collaborative economy, and their inter-relation, are presented in a single overview.

P2P Foundation: Researching, Documenting and Promoting Peer to Peer Practices

The P2P Foundation is a non-profit organization, a knowledge commons and a global community of researchers and advocates that monitors the emergence of peer to peer dynamics in every field of society and human activity. Peer production, governance, and property models that are characterized by open access, participatory process of governance, and property formats that guarantee universal access are monitored. The aims of the P2P Foundation is to act as a global community of researchers, focused on understanding phenomena such as open innovation, co-creation and co-design, crowd-sourcing and crowd-funding. Of particular interest is the intersection between the newly enabled ‘horizontal’ social processes, with the pre-existing, more ‘vertically’ oriented institutions, such as corporations and governments.  In our research collection we have particularly focused on the sustainability of open practices, i.e. on open business models.

Barcelona Social Media Surgery

[en]

One of the workshops at PodCamp Barcelona will be a social media surgery. This is a format we have wanted to bring to Spain for a long time, but until now we haven't had critical mass. After PodCamp we'll continue doing the surgery on a monthly basis.

Uno de los talleres de PodCamp Barcelona será un quirófano de social media. Este es un formato que ya hace tiempo queríamos hacer en España, pero hasta ahora no había masa crítica sifuciente. Después de PodCamp seguiremos "operando" una vez al mes.

GobCamp

[en]

GobCamp is a local government unconference for workers in the Spanish public administration and anyone else interested in the topic. Many people want the public administration to change, to become an open, agile, dynamic, transparent, collaborative, participatory organisation; an admistration close to the citizen which is a bank of shared knowledge with a horizontal structure. The main aim of GobCamp Spain is to bring together all those who are working towards change in local government to discuss what they are doing. Society is changing and both citizens and workers in local government are going to demand change, local authority must respond to this demand. GobCamp will explore how that change can happen.

GobCamp es una AAPP Unconference, para todos los trabajadores de la administración pública española y las personas interesadas en ella. Porque somos muchos que queremos que la administración pública haga un cambio, que se convierta en una administración abierta, ágil, dinámica, transparente, colaboradora, participativa, próxima al ciudadano, que sea un banco de conocimiento compartido y con una estructura horizontal. El objetivo principal es reunir a todas las personas que estamos intentando que las cosas tomen otra dirección en la administración, para debatir y reflexionar sobre las actuaciones que se están llevando a cabo. El cambio social está ahí, el ciudadano y el trabajador lo van a hacer posible, lo van a exigir y la AAPP no podrá ignorarlo, deberá adaptarse. GobCamp explorará como este cambio puede llevarse a cabo.

GobCamp és una AAPP Unconference, per a tots els treballadors de l’administració pública espanyola i les persones interessades en ella. Perquè som molts que volem que l’administració pública faci un canvi, que es converteixi en una administració oberta, àgil, dinàmica, transparent, col·laboradora, participativa, pròxima al ciutadà, que sigui un banc de coneixement compartit i amb una estructura horitzontal. L’objectiu principal és reunir a totes les persones que estem intentant que les coses prenguin una altra direcció a l’administració, per debatre i reflexionar sobre les actuacions que s’estan duent a terme. El canvi social està aquí, el ciutadà i el treballador el faran possible, l’exigiran i l’AAPP no podrà ignorar-ho, haurà d’adaptar-se. GobCamp explorarà com aquest canvi pot fer-se.
