Michel Bauwens, “Middle Way Between Open and Closed” (MP3 audio), Emerging Communications, itconversations.com, 2008/03/14

Peer-to-peer technologies generally haven’t been popular within businesses.

The openness of the digital commons has created abundant and freely available social value but not a way to monetize it. In the talk from the 2008 Emerging Communications Conference, Michel Bauwens of the P2P Foundation asks: to which degree are the interests of peer producing and sharing communities both similar but also divergent with the owners of the infrastructures and the proprietary platforms? Can we find a way that satisfies both communities and corporations?

Michel Bauwens is the founder of the Foundation for Peer to Peer Alternatives which researches and promotes peer to peer alternatives in all areas of social life. He is a Belgian national now living in Chiang Mai, Thailand, animating a global cybercollective from this tropical mountain city which is at the epicenter of the Asian Renaissance.
