Thanks Sean. This looks exciting. Is there any way we might emphasise the Centre's role in honing UK expertise, opening it up and ensuring it's fully tuned to the wealth of business practices on the rise beyond this land? This is a key concern for AHRC, ESRC et al who tend to be painfully retarded "Creative Britain" thinkers.  Of course we can't say that, but can stress the importance of business model diversity for socio-economic sustainability, and the ways this Centre might nurture social cohesion by revitalising the ethos of the Commons, in a landscape scarred by alienation, dispossession, non-identification, etc. Sorry for rhetorical overkill but hopefully you get what I mean.

It might be useful to allude to Asian energies, which tend to be an obsession... The UK as a crossroads for multicultural dynamics and mores, inspiring its richly diversified communities with exemplary new business models etc. Dunno.

LIberate Media - Tim Greenhalgh (Lorraine's contact and usefully Southampton-loyal, Brighton based) - has also been contacted and could be a good relay (information/ PR vector amongst others). Kirk Woolford would readily be part of the Sussex team and has ample soft- and hardware development experience, private sector (US/ Europe) and govt. / research council/ TSB etc.

Am in your old Dundee haunt Thur-Fri  so shall will the walkers onwards.

Subject: draft

I sent this yesterday but the listserver bounced saying I had to many recipients:

The problem being that we do not yet know the total of those invovled; and we have not got a way to articulate the loose grouping so far at southampton with the P2P communication channels – Franco: when the bounce reaches you, it might be as well to add the people named to the circuation for this list

I also copy in the two people who will be working this the net phase (till 2 september) whie I'm on fieldwork: Prof sally Jane Norman and Dr Lorraine Warren

I paste the original message and the list f recipients: I sent it at 4.00pm BST; only three comments retrned so far, all supportive ; we have also got a lot of local partners some listed who have now sent support messages, important fpr our tatctical presentation



Dear Colleagues

The team asked me to to a first draft of the EoI

I am delighted to acknowledge the generous help of Prof Sally Jane Norman
from Sussex who has come aboard and been a rock

I've also taken the liberty of contacting more potential partners.
Unfoprtunately everyone else is at the beach - which is why the wild-eyed
trot got the job of drafting this

Absolutely the first draft. I've left space for additions, and of course
we will have to rewrite as a group

I may have put in too much detail on personnel; ad we may need it for a
more strategic expression in the section on Partnership; colleagues will
also I trust have theior own drums to beat as to 'orograms of work' - I
think  the model may be good; and I hope that we reflect the originality
of he proposal

By the way Prof Ian Hargreaves has agreed to come and give a talk at
Winchester in the autumn term; we are just negotiating dates with lawrence
Lessig to arrange a dialogue between them. Unfortunately we are not able
to make their dates coincide with Michel bauwens visit here in december,
but a ball will be very truly rolling by then

Technicalities: I leave to walk the Pilgrim's Way on Thirsday morning and
will have little or no e-mail access. Lorraine Warren
<L.Warren at soton.ac.uk<mailto:L.Warren at soton.ac.uk>> kindly offered to pick up the baton during my
absence - I shoud be available on the 2nd of September

I had thought of posting on the P2P wiki or to Google Docs for editing but
with so many hands, I'm not sure whether that is the best way:
recommendations would be excellent

With thanks
