“In order to change an existing paradigm you do not struggle to try and change the problematic model. You create a new model and make the old one obsolete. That, in essence, is the higher service to which we are all being called.” ~ Buckminster Fuller ~

As we’ve discussed before, the peer-to-peer economy is emerging in surprising and empowering ways, with sites like RipeNear.me connecting people to local food sources in ways never before possible.
But as the eye of Sauron (aka JP Morgan) alights on this new phenomenon, it’s important that we take stock of the P2P economy before it is co-opted and corrupted.
Join James for a new open source investigation into the P2P platforms that are helping to connect communities and empower individuals across the [world].
If you know of a helpful P2P platform (whether related to food, labour, lending or any other activity) please log in and leave it in the comments below.

Let me start the ball rolling on this investigation with the first link:
I just learned about this site the other day. Video producers can post their videos and set a price that viewers pay in bitcoin for permission to view. The price can be as low as 9 cents per view and can be split up among the collaborators who created the video. Payments are instantaneous and automatic and require no middle man and no bank. It’s an interesting idea and I’d be interested to hear from anyone who might have tried it out.
