Reboot 9: Michel Bauwens


Probably my farest away recording – directly from Thailand. Michel Bauwens is founder of the foundation of p2p alternatives. His talk is named “The Politics of Web 2.0 and the contradictions of a sharing economy

Michel and I talk about:

  • why he wanted to do something which has meaning for him
  • about passion and midlife crisis
  • what p2p has to do with respect
  • social trends: peer production, peer governance, peer property
  • the roman empier did not simply disappear – and how this applies to today
  • open design and why innovation could so much faster
  • if it works, we have a sustainable world
