Hi Flawer, Hi All,
I totally get you flawer.
Somehow, I see a variety of contracts, with shareable being one type of
license / contract that could be used , amongst other ontologies many seem
to be taking for granted , of which perhaps certain could overlap ?
Sometimes, and I do not mean this for this list in particular,
but generally speaking,
I have the feeling that its not easy to communicate such views,
except for examples related to collaborative consumption.
Most people seem to understand the idea of a library of objects.
Or the idea of renting some object or place from / to someone.
Moving one step further, into the realm of currency, and metadata , is
often a stage which seems to be more difficult to bridge.
My impression is that very often people understand currency as an object,
as in the case of a book in a library. And not in terms of data and
metadata, created out of specific contracts.
I liked Etienne's approach of explaining it as a "game"...
*A game other people need to agree to play with, for the currency to have
Hence, I would hope that granular and modulable metadata assembled into
enables* all games to be taken into account, and provide a framework for
"game 2 game" transactions. *
Actually, before even the stage of facilitating transactions, such "meta
game" enables its users to provide each other with context to support
choice making, become aware of the current, or potential effects of
interdependencies , opening up a *"meta-game of emergent contextualized
I realize that once I start talking about an emergent system , it seems to
become difficult ( too abstract ? ) for many to grasp ?
Perhaps at it becomes a 4th order cybernetic order ?
I may need to find different ways of explaining it.
Perhaps conversations on this list can help...
How can one best explain that any transaction can potentially choose its
license / conditions , and that such license can not only itself become
currency when accepted by others,
but that the combined descriptions of conditions by all users, the
contextualized metadata , becomes a type of (meta)currency, as the context
and its interdependencies creates a defacto a license to choose from.
In other words, becoming aware of potential economic networks creates a
license to choose from, and to contribute from.
In effect, the context created through emergence, becoming an open capital
