Hi Anna, thanks for the reply and feedback! It souds much better to me
to be honest also to break with the mental-manual labour division
which I see as the beginning of the wrong path we took as human
civilisation, or forced to take. I do not the expertise at the moment
to argue this with references to etnnogrpahic and antropologic
sources, but it is kind of obvious that in case we do not manage this,
we wil be reproducing today's and future's class divisions and
struggles. I think and belive the method of self- and mutual-learning
by exchange and by adding on top of what we each already know, and
having a shared commons produced by those recognise each others as
peers -class division reproduction free- like we do it on the e-lists
and social networks. So can I please add this proposal to the draft
list of offered courses,with your name as tutor?

Meanwhile I just gave a concrete form to the overall project and
submitted the below proposal to Coopfunding.net, a cooperative funding
project developed by Catalan Integral Coperative. As you will see your
course fits perfectly to the objective:

"GNUnion aims at

1.  Creating one big mesh network for the working people from the
Global South and Global North by linking autonomous networks and
communities of high-tech/knowledge, industrial and service workers;
domestic, immigrant, rural, jobless and future workers; solidarity,
activism and research networks; labour, environmental, social justice
and information freedom activists,

2. Hyper-, and self-empowerment of the individual nodes and networks

3.  Emancipation of human labour, creativity and potential from
current dominant system, based on waged slavery, by mesh networking
existing and working alternatives and building new ones,

4. Combining labour, digital, creative and media activism to confront
system with transnationally meshed, systemic and strategic mass

The network of the projects we design and develop focuses on
self-organizing and connecting like-minded peers and their network
bases to each other strategically and synergetically. To this end we
build dynamic, free, libre, and open access spaces and tools through
which our collective agendas, struggles, and energies can entangle
with each other, and we can act upon them harmonically. Variety of
projects listed below invites like minded peers to use the individual
social and communicational power they have and collaborate around
dynamic, creative and positive projects empowering them. By combining
peer to peer social dynamics and technologies, and embedding them into
our internal and external processes and relations we ultimately target
global emancipation of labour and the commons from the capital, by
empowering all the single nodes joining in collaborating creation of a
commons humanity.

I would like to communicate details futher, may be on skype or
somthing else, will email you to arrange a call!

talk soon, Orsan
