Today I found videos of the presentations from 'Sowing the Seeds', the 2018 #PlatformCooperatives conference in #HongKong. Here's the playlist for day 1:
Day 1 of Sowing the Seeds started off with a big picture overview by Michel Bauwens of the #P2PFoundation, and sociologist scholar and labour activist Professor Pun Ngai from the University of Hong Kong. She set out to place the #PlatformCooperative movement in the context of the Chinese socialist revolution, and I'm looking forward to rewatch this video and try to understand more deeply what she was arguing:
@strypey Good to have this thank u. D'you have a link for Michel's recorded talk? I'm having trouble navigating the site - hadn't previously found Pun Ngai's talk.
On a different plane, there are echoes of her theme in this audioslide presentation I did with a Chinese scholar (in a quite different field) earlier this year, trying to figure 'the 3rd radical science movement' - in China? And connect with P2P-commons.
Some context is sketched here
This presentations is fascinating @mike_hales , although I have very little familiarity with any of the academic history it covers, so I'm having to paddle hard to keep up ;-)
@mike_hales by the time I got to the end of the presentation I could definitely see why you propose that the P2P/ commons movement is the "third movement", it definitely represents a turn towards #CitizenResearch and #CitizenScience, just as much as it does a participatory approach to software development or design. #Wikipedia is the archetypal early example, but there are so many others, like #SourceWatch, #Appropedia, #PlantsForAFuture, even more rebellious sites like #Erowid.
