    Advances in information and communication technologies (ICT) have fueled the rise of the peer production community, a type of socio-technical system that self-organizes to deliver products or services created in a distributed manner. These novel modes of production, examples of which include such successful projects as Wikipedia, GNU/Linux, or Project Gutenberg, defy the expectations of standard o... View full abstract»

    Socio-technical systems are here to stay. They are going to become more important and more engrained in our daily lives. Even the relatively mundane examples we see these days have transformed the way we communicate, look up, and share knowledge, and the ways we choose our restaurants, our rides, and our vacations. Computer supported cooperative work is already transforming the workplace. Personal... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1248 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Communities and societies are known to achieve key benefits, such as trade growth, risk mitigation and resource sustainability [1], by following and observing conventionally-agreed and mutable rules (e.g., norms and laws). We focus on "democratic" societies-where citizens can contribute to changes in these governing regulations (directly or indirectly), which then apply equally to all [2], [3]. Ho...

    In human society, individuals have long voluntarily organized themselves in groups, which embody, provide and/or facilitate a range of different social concepts, such as governance, justice, or mutual aid. These social groups vary in form, size, and permanence, but in different ways provide benefits to their members. In turn, members of these groups use their understanding and awareness of group e...

    The new capitalism may be described in terms of the innovation that enabled corporations to transform their demand and supply trade exchanges with their customers and suppliers through the Internet. This enabled (and better controlled) corporation's outsourcing of non-core and core activities, which naturally eliminated the need for capital resources. Furthermore, this permitted corporations to de... View full abstract»
